OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 09/25/11 08:47 AM

HELLO, All You Beautiful People!!

Do you like to have fun, be a little silly, and let loose a bit? This Challenge is for you!


With full authorization from Brian Whitney , WE IS NOW GONNA HAVE US A JPF KARAOKE PARTY/OPEN MIC.
This thread will be ONGOING, rather than a new numbered topic every week.
Drop in or out as you like; open to everyone at any time.

Basic idea: "What would happen if a bunch of JPF'ers got together and hit up a karaoke bar??"
I will be your "Party Hostess" and hold a Weekly Party Challenge/Theme for songs.
(*Simple rules posted further down.)

So! STARTING MONDAY 12 AM EST.... (Sunday midnight: East Coast Time)
This is our first theme:

[Linked Image]

EDIT SEP 30: OK, "eye am dum" ... it says Sep 31, and there IS NO SEP 31 and none of you peeps called me on this! Sigh...
WE WILL RUN THE CITIES CHALLENGE THRU SUN MIDNITE OCT 2nd.
I tried to change the graphic.

For anyone who can't SEE the above blinky graphic --
PARTY CHALLENGE #1: CITIES!! Sing ANY song with contains a CITY NAME in the TITLE, ARTIST, or LYRIC.
Original or cover songs allowed.
SEP 26 - OCT 2

Drop your song link in this format:
TITLE:
ARTIST:
LINK:
~~EMBEDDED PLAYER ~~
ANY INFO
pertinent to your entry.

(IE: for this week, if the city name is in the lyric, quote that line, or say "Mentions New York" or whatev.)

*If you ALREADY HAVE a song recorded that fits the theme, cool beans, just post it! and not a lick of work on your end. OK? OK!

Please give BOTH the URL & embedded player/video if you can - it will make listening VERY EASY here. For detailed info on how to EMBED a music or video player, see this topic:

http://www.jpfolks.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/924164/page/0/fpart/1

To keep this thread from getting TOO cluttered with individually quoted posts etc, when you have positive comments, we'll use more of a "Twitter format" for this, like so:

@JimJPF -- great vocals!
@Linda -- listened, nice job!
@JaneJPF -- sweet, good song choice for you!


....rather than extensive quoting of previous posts to address each player.

Let's keep things trimmed & tight.

This Challenge will run through the weekend to SUNDAY MIDNIGHT OCT 2 to let us all get started and figured out.


Weekends will normally be "OPEN MIC FREEBIES" -- drop ANY TWO SONG LINKS, COVER or ORIGINAL. I'll announce the next week's Party Challenge at some point over the weekend, to run Mon 12 AM -Fri 9 PM EST (for those of you home Fri nite with nothing to do but hang out at JPF - lol).

Rules: SHORT VERSION. (Long version w/explanations, scroll down the thread a bit)
1. TWO SONG LIMIT PER PERSON PER CHALLENGE PER WEEK.
2. POST songs and comments here in this topic using FORMAT explained above.
3. ONLY POSITIVE FEEDBACK ALLOWED!!! BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER.
4. TRY not to post the SAME recording more than once throughout the thread.
5. STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to use existing Karaoke Online sites to keep it fast and easy. Recommended sites below. SEE the "Party Hotline" thread for asking your how-to questions. DO NOT POST tech questions HERE.
6. LICENSING is your business not ours.
7. NO PRIZES (except, possibly booby prizes), THIS IS NOT A CONTEST, NO WINNERS and NO LOSERS!
8. INSTRUMENTAL play-along is allowed.
9. KEEP YOUR SONG "PUBLIC" until the following Monday when the new Challenge begins.
10. PLEASE TRY to listen to others .

Those of you who know me best - should know that my Challenges may get a little kooky or zany as we go along, but that's sort of the whole point.
Laugh! Relax! (what a concept!)

Final note:

This will likely be a very silly place.

HAVE FUN!

Re: Karaoke Party in the Challenge Forum! - 09/26/11 12:29 AM

Well I do have one of my own that mentions Texas, but thats a state not a city....

glyn
Posted By: Linda Sings

Re: Karaoke Party in the Challenge Forum! - 09/26/11 01:02 AM

@Joe -- Galveston IS a city! yup!

@glyn - don't forget to try anything by Boston or Chicago (bands), but not Kansas which is a state LOL... if you want to rewrite and re-tape the Texas line in your song to say Dallas instead I don't care :-) ... that might be easy to do!

And- other suggestions - don't forget Showtunes like "New York, New York," oldies like "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," or things like Chess: "One Night in Bangkok"... Billy Joel and Simon & Garfunkel mention New York quite a lot too... Bob Dylan and The Eagles tossed city names in their lyrics I'm pretty sure...

Lots of songs mention London or Tokyo or Paris or LA... for some starter suggestions!

.... and you have time to think, and it's OKAY to GOOGLE for songs or lyrics!! (or artists)

You've got till next Monday 12 AM (meaning, Sunday midnight LOL) EST ... and just one song is OK to enter - it's just a max of two - but you don't HAVE to put in two.

Try the REDkaraoke site too and search there... they have WAY more free songs.... search for a popular city name... see what happens!

Be creative! You could even write a new one if you feel like it.

smile

Re: Karaoke Party in the Challenge Forum! - 09/26/11 01:08 AM

ALSO: Song repeats are OKAY this week!!

We're just getting started!
So don't worry if some of you wind up singing the same few songs - not a problem.

If you have a song ready, you can start posting TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT East-Coast Time!

Re: Karaoke Party in the Challenge Forum! - 09/26/11 08:18 AM

Here's mine, and you CAN laugh:

Title: The Haircut Song
Artist: Ray Stevens
Link: http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/b67b8c636
Player:
<object width="357" height="458"><param name="movie" value="http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/e/b67b8c636"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/e/b67b8c636" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="357" height="458"></embed></object>
Mentions Butte, Montana, L.A. & San Francisco


** posting on my mobile browser does not bring up my HTML options, so I will edit this post in the morning to change my settings and fix it. But for the present moment, this is what embed code looks like! On SingSnap and RedKaraoke, it is found just below the URL/link code box.

** offering this one up as an example of allowable one-take through IM-perfection and semi-suckiness. A couple lyrical changes I tried out, to change it for me being a "girl" didn't quite work out! But no worries. I taped this at 2 AM one night and for some unholy reason hadn't deleted it yet, or re-sung a better take. Oh well!!! Phhththtttt! This is what I mean. Don't fret, don't worry, don't let this take up too much of your time!

** also this is a sample that, being NEW, I didn't know I had a "sync vocal with music" button (& it's too late to fix now - on Sing Snap you may only re-mix for 30 days) - I did SING in time to the music, but due to upload speeds, my entire vocal track is "behind" just a twitch.

If you encounter this problem, post in the HOTLINE thread & I can walk you through how to correct it, at least on SingSnap. But as it's a known issue with online karaoke, I would expect most sites should have a "fix sync" button somewhere on their "mixer" page, that will let you slide it + or - in tiny increments until it lines up properly.

SO.... Do try to listen and watch for that!!
Happy Singing!!!

EDIT: - one problem Joe - you forgot to turn off AUTOPLAY - it's gonna start going every time anyone loads or re-loads this page. I'll go grab your code and get it turned to "off." BRB!

EDIT 2:
Fixed :-) PLEASE REMEMBER - on code copy from SOUNDCLICK - to turn OFF AUTOPLAY and check "User has to Click Start Button."

Gotta remember to switch out the MARKUP to "using HTML and UBBCode" when you make your New Post. smile Instructions in the Hotline Thread!! smile Listening now....

Scary thing is that song is *the* one that has been popular absolutely everywhere I've played it. Never fails the audience is singing along by the last chorus. (And it is always "heavenly.")

OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 09/28/11 05:42 PM

Just posting the "Long Version" of the Party Rules here... short version up at the top.
Retaining this here for clarity smile



1. TWO SONG LIMIT PER PERSON PER CHALLENGE PER WEEK.

2. POST your song links/players and any comments for others here in this topic using the above-defined FORMAT.

3. ONLY POSITIVE FEEDBACK ALLOWED!!! BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER. This is the big one and I'll hold you all to it. Critique is for the MP3/Video & Lyric forums. Here - we are dropping it. IE: Here, you are allowed to suck. And that's all right. Your song entry is allowed to be a little sloshed. If we really were at a karaoke bar, I would be your designated driver and some of you would be a little tipsy, and we all know it, so if your song doesn't come out perfect here, who cares? Just sing to have fun! It's a PARTY! Parties should be Happy Places where we are all having a GOOD TIME. Silliness and sense of humor encouraged!

4. As we go along throughout the weeks, TRY not to post the SAME recording more than once. At least re-mix it or add a harmony or something if the song fits another week's challenge. Just.. eh, let's not be all boring and stuff. Ya know?

5. STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to use existing Karaoke Online sites to keep this super-fast and simple, so you can sing your song and post it up in 15 min or less, then get back to your serious Musical Work and Business.
***NOTE!!*** I will post a list of recommended sites below, AND create a SEPARATE "Party Hotline" thread for helping you get used to, and work out any, tech issues in how these sites run and how to get started up with it if this is all-new territory for you. DO NOT POST your tech "how do I...?" questions HERE. (Or if you do, I'll move it over to the Hotline. Answering all that here will just clutter up this Party Thread.) MOST of these are FREE, though they do offer subscriptions; I don't want anyone to feel any pressure to pay any of these sites however. Most have many FREE songs to choose from. *If you have any trouble finding a Free Song that suits the Challenge, PM me or post in the Hotline Thread and I'll figure something out.

6. LICENSING, as always at JPF, is your responsibility. The Online Karaoke sites take care of this for you, which is why I so strongly recommend them. Plus they're easy.

7. NO PRIZES (except, possibly booby prizes), THIS IS NOT A CONTEST, NO WINNERS and NO LOSERS! Party-goers just get to feel all happy and stuff. And have fun. So... work hard if you want to develop a brand-new demo from scratch for a Challenge, but really -- you're not going to be recognized for all that Extra Mile in here. Give it a little or a lot. Mix, audio quality, pitch/timing, tape hiss etc.... none of that's gonna matter here, and I *don't* want this to cut into our serious time much.

8. INSTRUMENTAL play-along is allowed, if you really really don't or won't sing or prefer to play your Les Paul Custom, kazoo, washboard, saw, harp, viola, jazz flute, whatever. It's all good!

9. YOUR SONG MUST REMAIN SET TO "PUBLIC" and available to all to hear until the following Monday when the new Challenge begins. After that you can trash it, but not before!

10. PLEASE TRY to listen to others as your own time allows.


THANK YOU! You are all doing wonderfully!

Well I changed the description to "OpenMic/Karaoke" so ... depending on the challenge of the week - when it's generic like Cities or other themes rather than say "Classic Rock Artists" etc.... open mic originals are awesome to post!!

Hi Linda, Just saw the challenge so this is for cities.

This is gonna suck a big one in my bravery I know but love the challenge.

I got no webcam or mic, this was done with my borrowed grand daughters "dollar store microphone", literally!

A favorite song of mine, also one I can't sing. Haven't heard it in years and sure need to practice it, and I made some screw ups, besides not bein' able to sing it. I'm no singer in the first place, that's why you don't see acapella's of my lyrics on the boards.

Hey all of you all that don't take on a wordy lyric, yea, they're hard to sing!

So I toast my embarresment. CHEERS! (raises glass)

http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/r/b38c3dc14

did I do that right!

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/02/11 04:27 AM

Geneva,

I enjoyed this very much, and this is so much fun, helps me with my singing(for myself, i'm not fool, know i'm no singer), but this does help me see how I should sound. But Geneva I enjoyed this alot, thanks for doing this...

way to go lady...glyn


And I toast to you too as I raise my tea glass...Cheers

And I too see now how hard a wordy lyic is to sing, mine for now will be shorter!!!

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/02/11 04:34 AM

Hi glynn,

Nothin wrong with your singin".

But I hear so much more confidence in your vox now than when you started out. that's awesome! Hope I stay brave, and can actually practice with listeners, that's the hard part, and maybe not give up, (I'm a quiter if I don't think I'm goin' anywhere) and get there too.

This took everthing I had too post!

@Geneva! you sound terrific!!! you are sure right on! and ...those words are not easy, you kept right up! Great tone and country sound you have there too... see... this was so fun to hear someone who might not normally sing here on JPF... I thoroughly enjoyed your performance! :-) Please do keep posting, I really like hearing your voice!!

I think there are many of us who sing better than you think you do!
Thanks so much for your courage! Hear the applause - in your head!!! grin grin grin

@Glyn, YES that was a powerful strong performance of the Whitley song, too. I have heard it a number of times out there on SingSnap and I gotta tell you, you really put some soul and feel into it I don't always hear. I really felt it that time. Great job!

"Make Believe" -- awww this takes me back, and again, you have a way of making the listener FEEL what you are singing, even if we've heard this song before. Thumbs up!!

"Shake Me" - I am not sure I heard this song before, but it's lovely! I really enjoyed the story here... and your voice is so great for storytelling.... awwww!!! what a neat song and performance!!

"Long Long Time" -- again such power and emotion and FEEL in your singing, Glyn! you underestimate yourself... wow... it feels raw and open-hearted and "all in."

@Scott -- I believe I remember when you first posted this cover... I was impressed then and am still impressed now! grin THANK YOU so much for posting it... it's full of feel and emotion too... of course being your hometown... too... I have never been there but I can see it in my mind's eye.

remember all -- on
OPEN MIC WEEKENDS: you can post any song you want!!

Thanks Jen Glyn and Linda,

It is good practice and Lord knows I need it.
You all sound so great and all!

I don't even know how loud to sing and I'm scared not too keep it down, esp since I don't even come close in vocal range to my favorite songs with a "city in 'em.

This one lists Abelene! A gretchen Wilson song.

Taking' a big breath before I post!

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/03/11 05:29 AM

LOL - you all are outta control - I can't keep up smile

But I think I've caught at least one from everyone. Cool to hear "I'm Like Brooklyn" again from Sub (one of my favorite songs anywhere) and "City of New Orleans" from Colin - another big favorite. smile

Wasn't gonna pass up Jen's "King of the Road" either - not sure what I liked best - the video or the music. smile

I grew up in Poland-Struthers, Jen - just on the south side of Youngstown.

Then I listened to Linda's "Hold the Line", Geneva's version of "Guitar Town" and Glyn's take of "Don't Close Your Eyes". I knew Linda and Glyn had good voices - first time I heard Geneva though. Looks like we have another classy country lady in our midst. smile

Closed with Joe's "Pole Dancing for Jesus" - LOL! grin

Sorry about the cough!

I wasn't gonna try this again til I get a mic, but it's fun!

My grand daughters dollars store jobbie I'm usin is a hard plastic thing that hurts and is too big for my ear, falls out, and has a long thing attached that sits near my cheek. I don't get much volume from that that little ear bud, not near my computer volume. I suppose it's a toy, and all I can do is toy with it anyway!

Maybe I'll check out Radio Shack, or if anyone has any ideas please let me know. It's not as if I'm goin' anywhere with it and need much.... 20-50 bucks is cheap entertainment I figure. Thanks! Geneva

BTW The harmony in the chorus from the site really throws me for a loop, it's not how I remember the song, and I can't get past it.. Is it just me or does it bother anyone else!

My animal is a bird for the challenge

I chose sparrows, one of Tanya's songs, another one I can't sing.

Scott -- I'm only holding *myself* as Party Hostess as obliged to listen to everything posted - (which is why I set a limit - !) but each of you participating, just listen to who you can when you can, and it's all good! It's "nice" to listen to one for each one you post - but I'm not holding that as a rule for posting. :-) Thank you all for listening to so much of each other tho!

Awwww and I thought I snuck in Hold The Line where maybe not anybody would catch it!! LOL hhaa..

Oh those BLASTED BACKUP SINGERS!!!! Nah that is a COMMON complaint on these karaoke sites.... aaaargh! there are some songs I KNOW I know and I can't sing against whatever harmonies they threw down... aaaarrggggghhhhhh.... it's not "just you," Geneva!!!

Oh and if you have the option and NEED to move the key UP - when there are backing singers - you get the Mickey Mouse/Munchkin choir... and it's just ridiculous... or if you move it DOWN sometimes it's OK and sometimes it's like the Zombie Choir.... LOL!!

You just do your best! I hate them half the time too -- they show me up when my timing went off!! ROFL!

Hi, All!! Hey, now... I've brought the veggie tray and Soda Pop for the party here!! smile Glad to see more peeps!!!

@ Ann.... I LOVE that song... I haven't been brave enough to try it, but you did a remarkable job!!! Love it!!! Thanks for sharing! smile

@ Joe.... OMGoodness, that song is SOOOOOOO Hilarious!! I took a listen at lunch time today, and that was just what I needed to put me in a good mood!! LOL!!!

Ok... now I'm telling you this one took guts for me to try... and even more guts to actually post this train-wreck, but here's my first contribution for the ZOO song:

Thanks, all. Here's Number Two--just because I went through the "which dead animal shall I do?" exercise this morning, and there wasn't any point in waiting any longer.

This is the only song I ever co-wrote with my daughter, who is all grown up and graduated from college and married and working now, and doesn't like to be reminded about it.

TITLE: Chipmunks Roasting on an Open Fire

And yes, I suppose it could be considered a parody of sorts--except I never could follow Mel Torme's fruity chords, and re-did it as country music. Obviously, it echoes the original closely enough so you can tell where it came from.

[Linked Image]
If you can't see the banner, it is:
TAKE ME TO THE ZOO
MON Oct 3- FRI Oct 7
Post ANY SONG with an animal named in the Artist, Title or Lyric
Original or Cover songs accepted
2 songs per person per week

PS: I HAVE IN MY HEAD A SECRET SONG.... which if anyone posts they will get a Bonus Song Coupon Banner... bwahahaahaaa.....

Songs may be repeated, so I won't tell what the Secret Song is until the end of this Challenge in case more than one of you wind up with it.

So far no one has done it yet.
However I realize that's really broad so HERE ARE TWO HINTS:
1) Joe Wrabek COULD easily have written this one but didn't
2) Animal in the Secret Song is pictured in the above banner

PPS: I will also award a Bonus Song Coupon to anyone who comes up with an animal in their song which can be deemed more "exotic" wild, or "rare" than a Hippopotamus. LOL!


Happy Singing!

LINK:
~~EMBEDDED PLAYER ~~
ANY INFO
pertinent to your entry.

For detailed info on how to EMBED a music or video player, see this topic:

[color:#3333FF]{{AHEM!!}} SOME of you still need to check out this link and let me know if your browser is busted (some are!!) or if you just haven't found the "Markup" button when you make a "Reply" or not.

NOTE!!!
if you just use the "quick reply" box you will be UNABLE FOREVER to EMBED YOUR PLAYER IN THAT POST! (even me! doh!)

[color:#FF0000]You MUST USE the FULL REPLY button to get to that "markup" option!!

OK? OK!!
But it's OK I still love you all grin and will keep pulling your players down for y'all grin

We are using more a "Twitter format" here to reply to songs rather than individual post replies (as is more common on the MP3/Lyric boards) to avoid thread clutter -- like so:
@Glyn -- {compliment goes here}
@Linda -- {ditto}
@Joe -- {ditto!}
ETC!
[/color] [/color]

3. ONLY POSITIVE FEEDBACK ALLOWED!!! BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER.
4. TRY not to post the SAME recording more than once throughout the thread.
5. STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to use existing Karaoke Online sites to keep it fast and easy. Recommended sites below. SEE the "Party Hotline" thread for asking your how-to questions. DO NOT POST tech questions HERE.
6. LICENSING is your business not ours.
7. NO PRIZES (except, possibly booby prizes), THIS IS NOT A CONTEST, NO WINNERS and NO LOSERS! (and as you read along, you'll see anything I DO hand out is NOT Performance-Based!)
8. INSTRUMENTAL play-along is allowed.
9. KEEP YOUR SONG "PUBLIC" until the following Monday when the new Challenge begins.
10. PLEASE TRY to listen to others (one song for every song you post ratio is just fine).
and

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/04/11 02:50 AM

here to listen now! first up.. Snowbird... smile no order here, but I just heard this again after ages and ages - so I clicked it first...

@Glyn -- strong performance!! Just beautiful!

@Jen -- Sing - Ahhhhh!!! I think it's allowed to say you look MAHvelous in this vid, m'dear! and your singing - equally as marvelous! I LOVE this song grin always have!
Rocky Racoon - JUST RIGHT! you did smashing! Man I forgot that song.... lol... terrific job, worries or no! Good landing!

@Geneva - I dunno where you were getting feedback you "can't sing" because surely you have a LOVELY tone here... very suited to this song, and yeah just ignore the backup singers!! (they're just a pain - we all agree!) ... I really enjoy your voice - SING ON! :-)

Now hang on a sec -- for some reason, first it took me to Gretchen Wilson and "When I Think About Cheatin" - so that up there is for that one... here is for "Sparrows" ... lol... OK I'm not a lot into Country so, this is actually a new one to me! (shoot me) .. but what a pretty song - and great vocal!! and terrific introduction to this lovely tune. Oh those ARE loud backing singers... you can slide the "mixer" button more toward your "voice" on a remix to tone them down some - but during the singing, it IS tough -- you handled it though!! Sounds just great! smile sweet song- sung sweetly!

@Joe - Dead Dog - Oh yeah I've heard this 'un before -- and the Chimpunks Roasting too - LAUGHED all the way - and replaying happily to laugh some more!! awesome songwriting.... oh man... you are right up there with Ray Stevens! equal or more talent to good ol' Ray!! LOL I'd forgotten all the lyrics here... HAHAHAAA aw, now you've got me feeling all Christmas-y! grin

@Ann - Oooh Cool song choice! I've just figured out who Florence & the Machine are - very cool stuff, tho, this is my first intro to this one. Strong singing here! you landed those high notes! and the feel of the song was just great - enjoyed! thanks so much for popping in and joining us, so glad to have you!

Very fun! Keep 'em coming!

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/04/11 06:40 AM

It's so cool hearing everybody having fun in this thread! smile

@Geneva You have no idea how difficult that song was lol!! crazy Florence is hard to sing because her vocal melodies are syncopated and don't often go with the drum beats. Not to mention the higher notes. cool Your Steve Earle song was cool by the way. I've never heard that song but it sounded good to my ears! smile

@Jen Warner I've never heard this Beatles tune before but I liked your singing. I thought you sounded really good! smile Plus it sounded like you were having a lot of fun with it, and isn't that what karaoke is all about?? smile

@Joe I knew as soon as I saw your song title I had to listen haha laugh . Very clever and funny. grin

Okay, comments:

@Glyn: Frankly, I like your version better than Anne Murray's. I realized what I felt was missing from Anne's was a good Southern accent.

@Geneva: You done good. That is a hard song to sing, and I could never have managed to stay in tune with those backup singers interruptin' all the time.

@Linda: Like everybody else said, hilarious. Have you thought about doing more children's songs?

@Jen: I think you did at least as good as John Lennon--probably better. Again, not an easy song to sing.

@Ann: I'd never heard of Florence and the Machine before. Really interesting song. Your voice is good for this/

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/04/11 07:49 AM

Geneva (I think?) was asking about an inexpensive setup...
this one? which I DO NOT OWN... looks reasonable - you get 2 mics with a USB mixer to plug in to either Windows or Mac for $30, $20 if you buy a paid membership on their sponsoring site.
http://www.thekaraokechannel.com/online#tag=18yvsz0iimg&page=membership_kit

HOWEVER there may be "just as cheap" options out there... this is just one.
IF you own RockBand for Wii etc or similar, that USB mic that comes with it WILL plug into your computer as well!

Lots of folks on the karaoke sites using a headset like the one you describe though!
OK good luck!!

Thanks for posting Ann!

On Singsnap -- the embed code is right under your URL/Link code - if you drop the code in your post I will put up your player.
ReverbNation DOES have a player embed but it's hard to find!

Gotta suffer through my tutorial thread - LOL!!
http://www.jpfolks.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/924164/page/0/fpart/1
<---

But -- >>

As Glyn shows - she doesn't have the HTML option in her browser or operating system - SOME JPF'ers don't have HTML markup capacity and I/ we haven't figured out why.

If you use the REPLY button - then look for the MARKUP button and see your options - -then we'll know whether you can or can't embed a player.
[Linked Image]

Glyn -- you found the options!! but the bad news is, you can't embed because "HTML is disabled" on your machine. So I will keep pulling it down for you by Quoting your post. It only takes seconds! not a big deal! smile for those of you who can't ... you'll see something more like this:

[Linked Image]

No HTML option means you don't have what it needs. But I do. So post your code anyway and I'll wave my magic wand!! smile lol


So Ann - your code for that song looks like this when you paste it:
<object width="357" height="458"><param name="movie" value="http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/e/bfb3fe3e4"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.singsnap.com/karaoke/e/bfb3fe3e4" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="357" height="458"></embed></object>

....and if you change the Markup to HTML this happens... (wait a sec!)....

Colin, Joe, and Scott,
It's gotta be awesome to have the know how, I mean all those skills you've developed to do all your own songs, and you all sound great, each with your own unique sound and style!

Linda,
I so appreciate your kind words and how you've tried to give me the confidence to "get over it" and keep tryin', AND I LISTENED!
You have very powerful vox, I love it!

Glyn,
You have an awesome country sound! You have that natural drawl that I try to fake. You ain't heard it yet, but if I get braver and try and "sing out" in front of others you might, I just hope it don't suck too much. But it'll never be anything like yours, yea, you're definately a natural!!

Jen,
You sure can sing! I was watchin' Rocky Racoon yesterday (haven't thought of that song in years), you just did such a great job and looked so confident I loved it!

Ann,
You took on quite the song, a real hard one, and you did awesome with it!

I hope I didn't miss anyone, if I did I'm sorry and will catch you next time around. I've watched all your videos and heard your songs, what a great thread Linda (applause)!

Geneva

And again - we want to keep up with our "regular" JPF activity too so this doesn't slow down WRITING music! just listen to what you can when you can... it is FUN to listen to everyone, but if you have to pick and choose just one or two that is OK too!!

So glad everyone is having a good time so far!

I even tried restarting my browser but it didn't come up. Oh well, it's fixed now smile Btw, what a difficult song with The Lonely Goatherd! Julie Andrews really does make that song sound easy, but you did awesome with it! Good job! grin

Before my friend Hillary moved to Alaska, we used to record songs - one of mine, then a cover, one of mine, then a cover, and so on. I miss that. :) This cover of the Tokens fits the theme - Hillary has the main vocal: Song: The Lion Sleeps Tonight Artist: Hillary and Scott

Re: OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 10/05/11 03:50 AM

**JUST SO** everyone knows who isn't using SingSnap -- there is a very simplified Mixer after recording available - (you can re-mix for up to 30 days and then it's set forever) ... with option to adjust your vocal level to the music level AND to sync the timing if it comes in "off" on playback.

Mine are almost ALWAYS out of sync tho I sing "in time" on the beat and I'm sure of it - it's a "LATENCY" issue between their server and your web connection going on and some days are easy and some days are just AWFUL... sometimes it varies hour by hour... so I feel for you Glyn!!

ANY-WAY just as a reference point for anyone NOT using SingSnap - if you hear any of us and the entire track seems ahead of or behind the beat - it is *more than likely* NOT the singer but their system at fault, and our ability (collectively... on any individual song) to get the blasted thing to line back up properly. Aaaargh.


PS Gotcha Glyn -- to me it sounds like you still need to re-mix and try about a "+5" ... but it's not YOUR timing... it's the entire track... once it is lined up straight you will be on the beat!!

Re: OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 10/06/11 06:19 PM

@Colin cool song! I liked the groove and the melody of it. smile

Here's my third one, a really tough tongue twister tongue

Title: La jument de Michao (le loup le renard la belette) / Michao's Mare (The Wolf, The Fox, and The Weasel)
Artist: Traditional but most recent version is sung by French singer Nolwenn Leroy
Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_10500454

I didn't see anything about not singing an animal in a foreign language, so here's my third contribution. This is a French folk song from Brittany, an area of France with Celtic influence, hence the Irish sounding music to this one. The lyrics don't make much sense, but it's a folk song, they're not supposed to make sense sometimes! cool crazy

I had such fun singing this one, but I couldn't get it in one take lol! It's fun trying to spit out lyrics as fast as possible! grin

I really couldn't keep up anyway , might redo, might not...

Kinda silly but it was fun. I figure if I can embarrase myself with vocals, most well put a face to it and get that over with LOL!

@Geneva Thanks for listening and thanks for the compliment! I've never heard that Creedence Clearwater Revival song but it sounded like you had a lot of fun singing it! smile

Here's my 2nd one for the Freebie Weekend. It's an original song I redid vocals for my last album.

Title: Fade Into Me (2011)
Artist: Ann Feld
Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_6431340

I originally did this song for my first album but I was never happy with the vocals, so I redid it for my second album Coming Up For Air. It's a song about unrequited love inspired by Twilight. I'm honestly not a huge fan of the series but the subplot between Bella and Jacob particularly touched me. So I wrote a song from his point of view as if he were singing to her. smile

@Ann - OOOH you sound AWESOME in French... love this one! I've heard this instrumental before - in movies maybe... but not the words! how totally cool! glad you pulled this up for us! wow sounds like a tongue-twister... whew! @Catch the Wind... also very nice - I'm not as familiar with Donovan as many are smile but this is a lovely job on a beautiful song. smile

@Colin - Seagulls - awesome song, and picking/playing/production as well. very much enjoyed this one. Nice visuals in the lyric! I may go download smile if I don't forget! by the time I'm done listening and typing smile Wish I'd Never - love the Caribbean sort of rhythm and feel on this one too... also really cool.

@Geneva !!! THESE ARE GREAT!!! You done yourself proud!! Loved the Amos Moses gator song - I don't think I'd ever heard that! it was super fun and well-delivered! smile Green River - your vox are just great on CCR too. I'm impressed, you are doing better, way better, than you think! smile So glad you're jumping right in! grin

@Glyn - listened to "Make It" first - SUPER job on this, you sound great! really enjoyed. You know, this isn't a song I really "loved" from Bread, but I had a terrific time hearing you sing it! grin "You Know What You Do" - again great lyrics and storytelling you are so good at! Great hooks, and nice performance too, esp building toward the end and the long notes there, great job!!

@Joe YEP that's right! either today or sometime next week. hehe.

@Colin - great song! I like the vibe - and cool to hear Geoff in the mix too. You and Jayne make a great duet pair vocally - your blend is very cool and great harmonies! Nice hook here too.

It DOES move fast - I thought it might -- smile if folks took to it! smile ....which is why I asked ahead for making multi-replies in one post {{like this!}} ... and that it's not required of each of you to listen to EVERY song. I'm listening to each one - but I'm the Hostess! grin If we get up to 50+ songs a week or more posting in - I may ask for help LOL so everyone gets at least a listen - but so far we're running pretty cool!!

@ Scott--- The Lion Sleeps Tonight was AMAZING!!! I love that song, and it was a marvelous rendition!!!

@ Colin--- I absolutely LOVED Blackbird!!! That is one of my favorite Beatles tunes... and now it's one of my favorite Colin tunes!!

On this week's songs:

@ Geneva-- American Pie... what a FANTASTIC JOB!!! And you are so darned PRETTY... love the vid's!!! Keep 'em coming!

@ Glyn-- I love that song so much (Barbara Mandrell), and you sound sooooo REMARKEABLE!!! AWESOME job!!!! smile

And of course, you know how much I loved that song just when it was a lyric.... you got a real nice melody going... I'm loving it as a work in progress! It's already super, and will only get better from here! smile

Glyn, Hey I remember when country wasn't cool LOL!

My mom and gramma would be playin' and singin' along with "Okie from Mestogie",so I had to put on "Hippi from Arlema" and sing a little louder.

Today I love that music, but those days were mostly classic rock for me!

I love your version of Barbera, Also awesome when I heard you do your own song!!


Mojo, I remember back when I was a bubble gummer and had to go buy a 45 record when that came out, guess I musta been about 12 years old. You really sounded great!


Joe,
Take out food.........what a great song, Stan was quite the wordsmith here, and you really set it off!! The sound you put to it is awesome. I love this song!

I love Incense and Peppermints (the song) - that's the first time I ever understood all the words! Nice job Linda.

One of my earlier bands did Tupelo Honey but the singer could not do it as well as Jen!

What can I say about Take Out Food...... I am just glad to be at the top of the food chain (as long as I stay out of the ocean).

You really pulled it off. grin

Re: OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 10/11/11 07:22 PM

Here are my two contributions for this week! smile

Title: Hungry Like The Wolf
Artist: Duran Duran
Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/10562045

Yay 80s!!! grin I couldn't find this one on Singsnap or any other karaoke site so I downloaded a karaoke track separately and sang it into my usual mixer program that I use for recording my own music. smile I did that for my second song as well.

#2:

Title: Cornflake Girl
Artist: Tori Amos
Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_10562075

There were no backing vocals on the karaoke track I found so I did them myself purely for fun. It was a lot of fun stretching my voice into the higher registers, higher than I'm used to singing!! grin
Posted By: Joe Wrabek

Re: OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 10/11/11 09:36 PM

Hooboy. Lot to keep track of here. I am nowhere near finished.

@Glyn: Your rendition of "Milk Cow Blues" was plumb beautiful. Your voice is perfect for this stuff.

@Jen: I think you did a better job on "Tupelo Honey" than Van Morrison. Congratulations.

@Linda: Ditto what everybody else said about "Incense and Peppermints." I bet you could do a great job on Grace Slick.

@Colin: The cappucino song has always been one of my favorites.

@Geneva: "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" is hard--lot of words in a small space. You done good. I could understand the words for the first time.

All for now. Like the former governor of California once said about music, "I'll be Bach."

Joe

Re: OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 10/12/11 02:28 AM

Wooo-Hoooo you all are sounding GREAT!!!!! Thank you all for the sweet comments on "Tupelo Honey"!!

@ Colin--- That Cappuccino tune is MIGHTY FINE!!! I had to listen twice... yes, lots of food in there, but that Hook is absolutely unforgettable!! And the video is BEAUTIFUL, too!!! Loved it!

@ Geneva-- I ALWAYS knew that one would sound great with a female vocalist, but to date, I had never heard it done by a woman! You did a MARVELOUS job!!! Really sounded great! smile

@ Glyn-- I'd never heard that Milk Cow Blues... but you do the blues GREAT!!! I really loved it, and was glad to get to hear it! Just SUPER! smile

@ Ann-- Hahaha.. I wanted to do Hungry Like The Wolves, too... but you are right, Singsnap doesn't have it! You did an AWESOME job on it!!

@ Ann-- Cornflake Girl... I'd never heard, but absolutely loved it, and the way you sang it sounded soooo GOOD!!!! Your voice is perfect for that style!! WTG!!! smile

My hands/thumbs are actually sore from trying to be online & typing today on this thumb pad - I gotta quit. smile

ANYWAY, let's keep it to two songs apiece this week until we all get feeling more caught up. smile Come Wednesday/Thurs I'll have a better feel for how swamped or not we are here smile and see about letting in a third song then, like last week. Sound good?? Thanks!!

LOL! That's why I've said there's no need to listen to everything posted! Just do what you can is all smile and we'll all try I'm sure to make sure no one is feeling or being overlooked in the shuffle.

Thx for the compliments on mine.... I think it still need some work if I were to take it outside the house anywhere, haha, but thanks. And I have a request out from John Voorpostel from maybe a year ago for White Rabbit ... Still working... It'll turn up sometime... After I've learned it backwards and forwards (winks @Jen, inside joke).

LOL carry on! I will listen when I get to a better streaming connection. Frustrating!!

Jen, "Drop OF Juniper" I love that song and your version was incredible and I loved the video, you just looked incredible performin' too!

Glyn, Gosh I thought I'd heard 'em all but "Milk Cow Blues" is new to me. I love that southern country sound you have, but Lordy, you're a blues woman too! That was just awesome!

Ann, My daughter's been a Tori Amos fan since she was a teenager, now my teenage grand daughter follows in her footsteps.
If they heard this they'd be some of your biggest fans!

"Hungry Like A Wolf" I haven't heard that in years, and you put out an incredible version!

I love seein' everyone havin' so much fun at this!

Okay here's Food Song Nummer Two. Wrote this for 45 Degrees North's performance at the Manzanita Farmer's Market this summer; it was suggested that since 'twas a Farmer's Market, we should do something about vegetables. That means Joe needs to write something about vegetables because that's what I do. And since we had a fiddle player who was into Celtic music, it was kinda Irish so she'd like it.

Joe, now that's alot to memorize, and such a fittin' song!

I almost caught one of your perfomances for a food drive in Garibaldi a summer or so back, goin' fishin' and I brought those cans of food with us, but we took others who help pay on the diesel and the bite was late, so we stayed out on the ocean too long.

I spend a lot of time at the coast durin' the summer, I expect I'll see you perform one of these days!
Great song!

My Mom makes Eggplant for people who don't like Eggplant smile
That's what a new client at the time said upon coming here on a Sunday and catching Mom's famous Eggplant Parm.

It's NEVER bitter, it's as sublime as her meatballs and the whole thing melts in your mouth.
One night I when i was a kid I came in with some friends after a long night of partying lol Well out comes Mom with her tray of eggplant and two loafs of Italian bread. You should have seen the faces of my friends as they were eatin it smile especially the girls smile Mama Mia!

Sometimes some of the eggplant are set aside with no sauce or anything. Those are the ones I get later and put into a sandwich with Ketchup! smile Delicious hot or cold! Also if you dont have Italian bread then have that on toast with the Ketchup YUMMY!!

Ya know if you want to learn the ingredients of some great hits songs, sing some and get the feel for it.

Dying for eggplant now, wonder why? smile but since it's a Karaoke Party I'll have to sing for my grub. So I'll be back with a song in TRUE karaoke fashion in moment. I'll try to dig one up...
Posted By: Mike Caro Substudio

Re: OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 10/13/11 11:05 AM

Here's one in true Karaoke embarrassing fashion I sang for fun, the music was provided by our very own Nightshift for a passed project.

I Write The Songs by Substudio

Personal Note: My piano playing hasn't gotten so poor now that my singing has actually surpassed it on the what I do best list smile


I Write The Songs

I've been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music
And I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

My home lies deep within you
And I've got my own place in your soul
Now when I look out through your eyes
I'm young again, even tho' I'm very old

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

Oh, my music makes you dance and gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock 'n roll so you can move
Music fills your heart, well that's a real find place to start
It's from me, it's for you
It's from you, it's for me
It's a worldwide symphony

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I am music and I write the songs

Thanks Ann i enjoyed yours as well.

I never bought a Barry album or saw his show. He did write great pop songs though and many of them. Also can appreciate his vocal after trying to sing this song that keeps changing keys smile

Also this was the only cover Karaoke style I had around. I sing
Jim Croce and Cat Steven style songs a bit better, there in a safer range. smile

STILL! YAY to see Mike in here !!!
And just to clarify, it does NOT NEED to be "karaoke style" - it can be ANY OF YOUR OWN SONGS that fit the bill -- UNLESS we're having say a "Led Zeppelin Week" (we're not in the near future!) ... then it would have to be all songs by that artist, era or genre... otherwise ORIGINALS ARE GREAT!! smile

But the rest of that I Write the Songs collab got eaten in Nite's computer, so my addition is gone now too -- glad to see some of all that work got preserved!! cool!

OK I am here - and ready to click away!! grin

Mine made eggplant parmesan and I still didn't like it much... my neighbor made it and I liked her recipe but didn't ever wanna grow it myself... LOL

Geneva... there is a "Voice -----------*------------- Music" spot on your "review or remix" this recording page... I have screen shots posted in the Party Hotline thread for what you're looking at on that page and how to adjust your vocals by sliding that button back and forth -- but -- I think you mixed "American Pie" nicely -- it sounds like a nice balance to me!!

also since I'm here...
@Geneva -- lovely soft rendition of "If I Die Young" ... very nice... and I'm on American Pie right now (just finished) and you are ROCKIN THIS chickadee!! very good!! WOO!!
ALSO AWESOME on Devil Went Down to Georgia, YEAH!! SING IT! totally great.

Unfortunately however fried chicken is not a particularly favorite food of mine.... heheehe

and it DOES stretch us in all sorts of good ways musically... more than you might think at first, huh? smile

Hi Everyone,

I was listening to each song from the beginning a week or two ago and was writing down comments to post about each one (there wasnít this many songs then). Anyway I got sidetracked and then pneumonia and I lost my list! I remember Lindaís haircut song, that Colin had a song and Jen (who brought me here). Um Glynda had a song now Iím looking back and cheating, lol Joe did pole dancing for Jesus. Anyway they were all very good, hats off to you folks for having the courage to do this, I would have to be drunk and I donít drink anymore.

Then I got to Mike Caroís song!!! It was a show stopper!! ďIím like BrooklynĒ I listened; I donít know how many times, Googled him and listened to EVERY song I could find! Wow was that a hit song? If not you should be pitching that song! I had my husband listen, and he didnít want to, but he loved it too. When I hear a song like that and itís not on the radio making money I just scratch my head in confusion.

Mike I read that itís an older song BUT it could easily fit on the radio I donít care how old it is, some things never change. Am I wrong? Do you think that itís dated? Iím listening again. I just canít tell you how great this song is. Here is the thing, when it first starts; the beat is so great that I know right off Iím going to love it! I can only think of one other song right off the top of my head that I felt that way about and the 1st time I heard it, I KNEW it would be a hit. Itís a country song ďA little more country than thatĒ. The music told me instantly that it was a great song.

Mike, Mike, Mike this is a hit song if Iíve ever heard one. I know you sing it great but Iím sure there are people that would love to record and perform this song. Maybe it was a hit and I wasnít listening to the radio or the right channel? Anyway you know better than I do, I really am just plain folks but I had to tell you what I think of this wonderful song!!! And the video, all those guitars Iím green with envy! And you can play all of them. When I watch you I feel like Iíve wasted my whole life! Iím learning guitar now but I donít have anyone to play with so Iím sure Iím teaching myself bad habits, lol. Sorry I got carried away.

Anyway cheers to all of you and Iíll try to keep caught up on all the new post. smile

@Jen I think I commented on your Hungry Eyes song on the SingSnap page, but I'll say it again here: I loved your version of that song! Very well sung! smile

And yay for bonus songs! Here's my bonus tune for the food theme this week. This one references two beverages.

Title: Solsbury HIll
Artist: Peter Gabriel
Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_10600120

This was quick and dirty. I know the song so well so I did it in about two takes. cool One of my favorite Peter Gabriel songs! (You can look him up doing this in concert on YouTube where he's riding a bike around a circular stage while singing the song, very cool. crazy)

Oh, and there's the line "turning water into wine," so that counts! smile

Michael,

I didnít know you could sing. I enjoyed both of your songs. Iím going to have to check this thread more often!

Re: OPEN MIC/Karaoke Party! Come jam with us! - 10/15/11 02:25 AM

Hi Dottie

I love when someone says my name three times in a row or types it LOL it really expresses the emphasis on how sincere they are being smile

Not to hijack such a FUN thread with "Woes Of Me" lol but why not LOL

First thanks so much for your feelings about my little song. Given how I'm feeling lately it is a HUGELY nice thing to hear. Also reminds me that I should post some old songs up on the mp3 boards 1- For those who never heard them 2- Cause I'm not writing anymore.

Lets answer some of those great questions some which I have been asked many times by many people.

1- Personally on the song I'm proud that it's genuinely liked by so many people. Many in which I don't know. A ways back we were doing a vote/pick of your favorite songs you ever heard posted here on the boards. While I was very proud that five different people picked five different songs of mine. I could not ignore that "Brooklyn" got mentioned several times itself.

Also proud that I get emails or comments about it on You Tube
it has like 30,000 NO TRICK hits. Ya know the computer geeks know how to get 30 thousand hits on a song in a week.... ANY SONG


2- Wow was that a hit song? If not you should be pitching that song!

Having a hit and getting a hit are two TOTALLY different things.
It was pitched, not nearly enough biz people though. But it was directly sent to Clive Davis and while complimented for a few things it was rejected.
I have no problem with that, he rejects everything :)and has been turning me down for 28 years. Sometimes a connection can be too BIG! Others around and other around him on board would be alot more persuasive.

I just don't like when they try to say your not up too par with current hits, most hits that are soooooo bad musically and lyrically it makes you sick AND your open minded, mind you.

3 - Mike I read that itís an older song BUT it could easily fit on the radio I donít care how old it is, some things never change. Am I wrong? Do you think that itís dated?


Yes it's a bit dated, but really ANYTHING can be done production wise by the people who have the knack to be made current ANYTHING! What some people don't realize is in most POP music anything LIVE feels or sounds dated. And if your voice is not a kid sounding one, or a typical female radio voice or not a Hip Hop one it is OUT! for the most part. Still this could almost have been sung by somebody more sophisticated and yet VERY poppy like a "Billy Joel etc... This subject matter and approach is not SEX driven or related so there's 90% chances out the window.

4- I know you sing it great but Iím sure there are people that would love to record and perform this song.


Thanks, but like 90% of my songs they were never written or shopped at least with the intentions of me singing them.
So really any label could take some young good looking kid from behind some register who doesn't need all the voice in the world. Give them a catchy song, and make a video. Spread it around and it will do "Something"

Isn't that what that silly "Rico Suave" hit song was all about.
This "I'm Like Brooklyn" is like that in regards of it being a Novelty Type Song. Humbled as I am and believe me I am. I feel this songs Bass line has more musical merrit than that entire song lol
I also know that there are 5 million people in Brooklyn if you never played this anywhere else but Brooklyn you'd sell a a half million copies. They are VERY VERY proud!
That is something you can try to do yourself but you'd need to be healthy and young to even start to think about. I'm neither.

5 - When I watch you I feel like Iíve wasted my whole life! Iím learning guitar now but I donít have anyone to play with so Iím sure Iím teaching myself bad habits, lol. Sorry I got carried away



Dot, it's okay to feel that way for a little while I do it ALL THE TIME... I put on Stevie Wonders albums and think about taking lighter fluid to all my equipment.
Did you know that I am RIGHT NOW teaching myself how to read music with the guitar. I am on BOOK ONE! "Mary had a little lamb"

I never learned to read music or learned theory. I always took the short path to my dreams which turned out to be the longest path and hardest road EVER! So now that I'm wiped out from health problems and I'm musically exhausted from ALMOST "getting" not "having" that elusive hit song, being let down COUNTLESS times for soooo many years.

I feel like a wasted a whole life too, and certainly the last six years of it more than anything. So we are alot more alike them you realize. Please understand your a good writer and a promising good lyricist. PLAY into your strengths if you want to advance what you LOVE doing into some work and reward.

I find a little comfort in knowing how people feel about the songs and me. And also that they are just as amazed and confused
that I can't get help or anywhere with seeing 64 doctors with a 14 year medical problem as they are with my 40 year music career
giving me no songwriting deal. And a total of $700 in pay for a lifetime.... Just this year too smile

So thanks for making my song a HIT in your life. It REALLY means alot to me. Otherwise I probably wouldn't even be around.

Thanks
Mike

Sorry for the hijack guys

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/15/11 11:59 PM

@Colin - Again I really enjoyed this song! I am sure appreciating your songwriting, production, and singing talents! I am not always up for an "on the road" song but you pulled me in with the first lines and there are some GREAT thoughts in there... so GOOD! thank you!

@Jen - SUPER job on Hungry Eyes... cool to hear that song again, and first time for me hearing it from a female vocal, really enjoyed it! You sound great on everything! ..and see above... you know I think you ROCK on that Jeffersons song!! more!

@Ann - (I may shoot myself in the foot here with a bunch of you but I don't know Peter Gabriel all that well - just that I didn't like that weird weird MTV video in the 80s... LOL... so) I didn't know this song ahead of time... but HEY! I really like your vocals on this song - love the tender Boom Boom Boom's of your heart! and fully enjoyed this rendition on a new song for me! Your low register sounds very cool here too. Nice range you have!

@Mojo
-- hey I love this Beatles tune...! Great job here -- I love the bridge section especially - great Lennon tone you're injecting in there...! super cool, makes me want to sing it too! :-) Your range sounds perfect for singing John's songs - truly! this was relaxing smile as I sit here vegetating on a Saturday afternoon in my armchair smile

--King Bee ... I was first intro'd to this with karaoke, LOL! hey GREAT blues sound going on here, too! yeah!!! rock IT! Wail! YEAH!! you got it! awesome!

LOL and there's still food in the song too... heheehe I do believe there's more food mentioned in songs than you first think!! grin

-- your original: OOH YEAH LOVE IT!!! thanks for having the lyrics up too :-) but yeah this minimal production is way cool and very swamp-spooky just right for the song... totally rocks ... would be fun to hear it with some wailing electric solo going on too ... but this is one I wanna grab and sing myself! sounds totally fun to sing!! ...and the backing track - by itself -- could hear that in a movie soundtrack in a spooky swamp scene... just waiting for something to jump out at you.... with glowing eyes in the dark... pushing a little canoe along with a pole... gators peering just above the waterline... this really does set a scene!! I'm impressed!

**funny side note** I just looked up the origin of the word "Mojo" and it really is a CAJUN word or possibly African... used to be a little satchel of small "magical items" you carried inside your clothes... so... in the old days, you could literally -- wait for it---

LOSE YOUR MOJO.....
ooops
LOL bad joke... sorry hehe grin grin grin

So anyway... interesting nickname you have for yourself there ... fun!!!


@Glyn
-- SUPER JOB on Blueberry Hill, your voice is SO GREAT for that! very soulful... your true talent is shining out - soul and feel -- on anything you sing!!

--I don't know this "New Fool" song either... but wow this is also just great! terrific choice for your singing. Sounds great!

THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE!!

Oh and... I happened to notice... we have 300+ posts but over 1300 VIEWS here... so there are a lot of folks lurking around - I hope they're listening and also having fun! Hello lurkers!!! heheehe grin grin

Wow you were rocking out with the Jeffersonís. You were hitting all those notes too. Iíve NEVER been anywhere to hear karaoke so this is very cool for me. Seriously you did a great job and I can assure you I didnít laugh.


Colin,

You sound great as usual. I donít know this song is it one you wrote?


Glynda,

I think I remember this lyric I always like it. Another very good song!


Hey Glynda,

I donít think Iíve ever heard this one ďWhere his heart has beenĒ. You are on a roll. Try not to overdo it at work.

Hey Dottie,

Yes that's one of my attempts at modern country. Thanks Glyn and Linda for the compliments on this one!

Now I need to do some listening.

By the way, I uploaded a better mix of this one - it was a rough mix that was up before.

@Linda,Thanx so much for the kind words,i think i developed John's singing way back in the 60's listening to my sisters Beatles records,well,the best i can anyway.I wish i could find "Mother" by John Lennon on karaoke,that's my fav by him.So glad you loiked "Strawberry Fields"!Well i had to sing "King Bee" to redeem myself from "Sugar Sugar"LOL.And yeah,there is some unmetioned food in the "Back Door Man" song,it goes without sayin' i guess.Well "Voodoo Man" is as close as i can get to that swampy feel,i just need to get some real musicians on it.I'm glad you have the visuals from it,that makes my "mission accomplished"!Thanx!May the MOJO be with ya!

Okay something weird for the weekend. This is a rap. Jerry Miller (dba zonemusicinc), a cutting-edge electronica performer in Cleveland, wrote the "beat" for me, and I recorded the rap to it. Funny, but the real rappers I know didn't like it at all. They thought I was making fun of them (well, duh).

@Glyn Nicely sung! I really enjoyed this one. smile

Here's my 1st one this week. I worked on this one with my voice teacher last year, but I still had to practice a few times before pressing record since it's been a while. smile

Title: Someone Else's Story
From the musical "Chess"
Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_10638864

Before last year, the only song I knew from the musical Chess was "One Night In Bangkok," so I'd never heard this song before my voice teacher presented it to me. It's one of my favs that I've done. smile

Enjoy!

By the way, I'm surprised there aren't any more posts yet! There are TONS of movie songs, musical numbers, and TV show themes...... smile

@Linda I'd completely forgotten about that song "I Know Him So Well." Now that I remember it, some girls in my choir class sang that song for our annual recital when I was in high school. I'd forgotten that song is from Chess. smile

Speaking of Phantom of the Opera, my high school choir regularly sang a medley of tunes from that musical for our quarterly concerts for all the parents. Luckily I was an alto so I didn't have to sing those high-up-in-the-rafters notes haha! grin

@Michael LeBlanc Listening now to your picks. It's funny how both songs I remember hearing a lot on oldies radio growing up as a kid but never knew who the artist or title was, especially "The Weight"!! Which by the way sounds awesome! Sounds directly from the late 60s, like it could've been in Easy Rider instead. smile Liked the Gordon Lightfoot one too. Well-sung and played.

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/20/11 01:16 AM

Thank you Glyn!!

Just keep talking it up. Those who will have fun here will be drawn in! I too felt like "karaoke" was a little, hmmm.... Non-real-musician ??? -ish ?? You know... It's that derogatory word Simon Cowell throws out there to singers.... "That was so karaoke".... But once I started in, I realized how much I was learning and absorbing about song structure, writing, and by listening to others and how each person interprets and phrases the same lyrics, what works and actually, what songs everyone LOVES to sing.

I am also expanding my general knowledge base of songs I never heard before... Stuff not in my usual genres of favorites or that I was too young for, or just plain missed on more current radio.

And if we don't keep abreast of what IS selling and WHY.... How can we improve as current writers looking to pitch any song anywhere?

IE I had never heard Adele before.... But here is everyone singing her hits. And NOW I notice her on the radio... And wow, she IS an amazing artist. And I was introduced to her by ....participating in a karaoke site of all things.

Granted, I've also heard maybe more renditions of "Crazy" and "Fever" than I ever thought I would, but it's all right. Those songs endure and are enjoyed for good reason!! smile

OK soapbox time over!! LOL

Also... Looks like I picked a week I thought would be fun but is kind of a dud. LOL! It'll happen!! So... Midnight TONIGHT we'll go to Open Mic early... And have a long weekend of it!

PS: and if you still wanna do a movie song... that's cool too smile
Bonus Coupon opportunities will still apply if anyone's adventurous enough!

Great job - harmonies just right too. :) - AH-HA ... now I know where I've heard this!! Jimmy Page, Jack White, and The Edge performed it in "It Might Get Loud." Jimmy declined singing along, saying he was "hopeless" at singing. -Lightfoot -- hey I really enjoyed this too... very very nice rendition.

- 16 candles -- oh also very nice!! great oldie - terrific!
- Buttercup -- I don't think I know this one - great job singing it tho, I do like your singing! smile
- Snake Charmer -- wow this is a really interesting lyric! enjoying your song here... great twist on the words.... great stuff!

@Ann -- I don't know all the songs from Chess so this is a first time through for me... but it is very pretty and your voice is sweet on it... enjoyed! thank you!

One more from me.... since it's dead here...

Sang this at 6 AM or something when I had to be up, (and I don't do mornings) and it just ran through my head without leaving me alone, so... I sang it.

@ Glyn,Snake charmer was cool!Not That Man is a pretty cool song also,i like it.Make You Feel My Love is one of my favorite songs of that type but Bob Dylan's version is the only one i can listen to,oh,besides yours of course.Whoever that was in the karaoke version really needed not to sing i thought though.

@ Linda,Not a fan at all of musicals and glittery showtune stuff but YOU do sound awesome singing those!

@ Joseph,I really enjoyed listening and watcgh your performance.
It looks like you have a knack for entertaining so keep it up!

@Ann,really nice vocals on Part Of Your World!Keep on keepin' on!
Posted By: Cecilee

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/21/11 05:54 PM

@Michael LeBlanc @Linda Thanks for the compliment about Part of Your World! Glad you enjoyed it! smile

@Linda Listening to your rendition of Memory. Boy is that a VERY difficult song (I've seen the sheet music, wow does it swoop from low to high!) but you sang it very well. It was a truly heartfelt version of a sad song! Are you classically trained just out of curiosity?

Here's my 3rd movie song for this week, this time one without vocals, but nonetheless my version of a famous piece of music.

Title: Moonlight Sonata (1st movement: Adagio sostenuto)
Artist: Ludwig van Beethoven
From "Immortal Beloved"
Link: http://www.reverbnation.com/play_now/song_10686346

This is one of my favorite pieces of all time from a composer whom I have loved since I was a child. And this was SUCH a challenge to play for this self-taught pianist. But I knew that going in because it's Beethoven after all! grin This is me playing it after about 8 months of intense practice on my keyboard. There are still some parts I need to work on but I know that. smile

You're not alone Glyn! I just been extra sick this week. Urgh.

Thank you Ann!!
I don't have formal classical training with lessons, no, but I do have a large range somehow, and a LOT of choral experience with sacred and/or folk type music both auditioned & non-auditioned choirs. Listened to a LOT of directors!!! All different.

But I'd call it "classical background" far more than formally trained. smile

I still want lessons but all I can find around here are opera teachers. I wanna rock!!! LOL!!

Thanks for listening though.
I need to take that sometime when I'm not propped up in bed singing.... And redo it smile
Lol
Linda

PS I am actually out!! To watch my son's marching band halftime show tonight! More marching band tomorrow too. I hope my sinus infection etc doesn't all get worse. But anyway I forgot my headphones so I can't listen to ya during the game smile ...soon!!

I am mobile at the moment, but want to announce now next week will be a "Halloweeen Jive," get down & boogie with your spooky songs, which will be held over through Halloween!

I have a cool graphic ready - but not sure I can find it to access it till I'm home.
[color:#000000]
AlSO, if you run out of or can't find enough spooky themed songs, if you have a cam -- and wear a Halloween costume -- sing anything and it'll count. If you don't have a cam but add a track of spooky scary howls and / or maniacal laughter to the beginning of your song, that will count too.


Sound like fun????
Hope so!!

For SONG COUNT... since this is a longer Challenge, with Halloween on a Monday - let me just say "Pace yourselves," HAVE FUN, and try not to over-flood the board with toooo much fun. smile About 4 ... spaced out over the timeframe... should be all right... if you love the holiday and have a lot of fun with this. :-)

ORIGINALS and COVER SONGS OKAY!
Posted By: Linda Sings

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 10/23/11 06:44 AM

@Joe - this is a new one to me! This is spooky sounding - thanks for starting us out a little bit early! smile enjoyed that - pretty cool song!

@Ann - truly enjoyed your playing of this gorgeous piece of music! Very nice touch on the keys... and it is extremely difficult... I haven't practiced enough to get it down this nicely myself... I think I would have to memorize it to truly perform it with any degree of finesse.... the sheet music score is SO difficult for me to read with the double-sharps and accidentals - yipes... Beethoven was brilliant. sigh... LOVELY.
Have been looking forward to hearing this since you posted it. smile

{{I'm home now BTW... and near asleep... but listening before I hit the hay!}}

@Mojo -- Angel -- yeah, great standard blues --- even got that classic "killing floor" line tossed in! Great job - nice sound and singing!
-- Blues in Motion - yeah!!! rocking some more great blues sound! GREAT stuff! love the harp and the guitar & bass here too smile

@Glyn -- Not That Man - oooh I like this theme, and the music is very cool on this - well done, girl!! :-D Sad but interesting and important, and it does happen... you hit things right on the head.
To Make You Feel -- Another great job singing here -- your phrasing is spot-on as always! super emotion. enjoyed!

All righty -- have a great rest of the weekend guys - I have a VERY busy day tomorrow but less so Monday (I think) so I'll be back in soon as I can. smile

And one more. I'll be gone tomorrow--judging a high school speech tournament--so this is m chance to get stuff in before y'all's deadline. Here's another maybe creepy one. Was triggered by Beth Williams' "MySpace or Yours?" song a couple years ago. I thought Internet love was great subject matter--but I wanted it to be *happy*, not sad. Unfortunately my attempt at online happily-ever-after ended up more like Internet porn...

For SONG COUNT... since this is a longer Challenge, with Halloween on a Monday - let me just say "Pace yourselves," HAVE FUN, and try not to over-flood the board with toooo much fun. smile About 4 ... spaced out over the timeframe... should be all right... if you love the holiday and have a lot of fun with this. :-)

ORIGINALS and COVER SONGS OKAY!

I was going to hold this over the the 1st in case of any late-comers, but it's been a little slow so I will hop in tomorrow morning and tell y'all what we're doing for the rest of the week, once I'm up. LOL. It might be 12 noon CA time. ha!

QUESTION!!



How we doing with the embedded players thing?

Are you USING THEM to listen?

OR are you just clicking links/opening new tabs?

[color:#000000]Just wanted to check -- they are GREAT IMO but if not "in-use" we may as well just use the song links.
???

Where, Colin? I don't see a "markup" option anywhere, either on JPF or on Soundclick. And when I paste the "single song widget" over from Soundclick I get text--like what's under the "thingie" heading above. How do I change that?

When you post, click reply rather than just filling out the box at the bottom. When you hit reply, you get a new screen with the markup option.

Colin, I do click "reply" rather than using the Bottom Box--and it makes no difference. Apparently HTML is not an option, and I don't know why. I presume it's the lack of HTML-ishness that makes my "thingie" text rather than, well, a real thingie. "UBBCode" is an option, and I have that checked. But it doesn't help.

My husband was so insanely jealous that I couldn't go out for coffee with even female friends or they must have been my lesbion lovers. He was so controlling and so pathetic, but I have a great marriage now and I'm happy!!

I really lve this song and love how you told this story!

GET WELL SOON!!!

Colin - thx for the help tech-wise - we have discovered some of us do not have the "HTML enable" option in the browser. I wonder if it is a moderator thing??? Hmmmm I'll have to check with Brian - he was in Europe when we all noticed -- last he said was, the options to embed have always been there but we weren't using them is all.

But... some clearly do not have it.
There is a "pinned sticky" topic in this forum for Tech Help with this "party" with screen shots and links and stuff.... anyway... thank you for posting the players from folks' codes in my absence!

Sorry about the absentee week too -- whoops!

Original creations are OK!!! so long as you tell us - how does it express a tribute to one of your deceased music heroes. smile

I chose this theme for 2 reasons... it is Thanksgiving Month (Canadian and US - I think?) ... and time to be grateful and think about count our blessings...

AND... Nov 24 this year marks the 20th year since MY personal music hero - Freddie Mercury - passed away.

That's Thanksgiving Day, in the US, this year.


Thanks... and enjoy... it shouldn't be too hard to find a song...
If you have a song about a favorite guitar or something - that'll be OK too smile

This is my Freddie tribute:
He released this as one of his first singles under the name "Larry Lurex" - a Beach Boys cover. If you click into the link - the PAGE itself is full of pics and links to Freddie's version on YouTube of this song and stuff. smile

On the bridge - Freddie gave that to Brian for guitar solo... so I didn't know how the actual bridge went smile
This is as good as this one gets - for now smile
thanks!

Contrary to possibly popular belief tho Dylan isn't dead, he's just 70 smile
lol
But it's OK Bob, it's your first play here so I'll gladly let your tribute stand - and you are quite right about Adele - she is FANTASTIC.

nicked the flip again! next to post gets the freebie coupon! smile

Here is NEXT WEEK if you couldn't already guess...

[Linked Image]

I will be out of town, personally, from Tuesday forward and I suspect many of you have holiday plans as well.

I may as well announce now - I was not sure what to do with this place over Christmas -- but tho I don't have a banner made up - It's just gonna be open season on singing Holiday songs of your choice -- which should be fun!

But due to family responsibilities and travel etc, misc, throughout December I can't micromanage here as I know I'd want to and listen to every possible holiday tune posted - so ... rather than put the thread on hiatus I'll just challenge you to sing your guts out on holiday material! Plenty to pick from and A LOT of public domain to boot!
smile

Thanks for understanding.... and with luck you will all SING A LOT over December and post here -- with fewer limitation rules - just sing and post when you like but you know, 4 songs/day from the same person - just like on the boards - may get overwhelming (LOL!) ... but ya know... we haven't had too much of that problem crop up so far so I expect you'll self-regulate OK in my semi-absence.

Then.... "Back to Work" with new weekly Challenges come January!!

Sound good? GOOD! OK GO!
(well, wait till Monday for Thanksgiving/gratitude songs please.... and if you'd light a candle on the 24th to mark the 20th of Freddie's passing... I would surely appreciate it!)

Linda

Thank You Mr. Santa Claus
© words and music by C. Stewart ( Dec. 13, 2010 )


The palm trees are shivering
As old man winter blows
My garden might end up with
A cucumber in snow

But I've still got the spirit
And a half a case of beer
Ray Charles is singing loud
Christmas time is here

CHORUS....
But we ain't got no chimney
On this old double wide
The doors are locked with
Pit bull's inside
So Santa here's an option that
Might make better sense
Drop our packages over the fence

Bring the twins a doll that wets
With tiny golden curls
A big city diamond ring
For Pearl my favorite girl

And some dirt plowin' tractors
For my country fried boys
And man I'd like a set of drums
So I can make some noise

REPEAT CHORUS....
But we ain't got no chimney
On this old double wide
And grandma's got her
Double barrel inside
So Santa here's an option that
Might make better sense
Drop our packages over the fence

Thank you Mr. Santa Claus
You're a far out dude
Everyone's in love with your
Ho Ho Ho attitude

REPEAT 1st CHORUS....

Re: OpenMic/Karaoke Party -Challenge Forum! - 07/10/12 04:58 PM

Hey Linda,

Nice rendition of "One and Only." I recently watched her DVD live at the Royal Albert Hall and I not only enjoyed her singing but also the stories she told in between songs. smile

Cool song, Glynda! smile I enjoyed the piano accompaniment, was that played by anyone or did you use a midi program to program the notes?

Here's one of my latest, a piano/drum instrumental I recorded in an afternoon about a year ago, called "Permanent Midnight." I was inspired by Peter Gabriel for the percussion (even if it's not really obvious) and the piano parts were recorded spontaneously and then layered together. Enjoy! smile

HI Ann....thanks for liking my song...John Lawrence Schick our own beloved friend here on JPF's did the Piano track for me...For this song I only wanted the piano in it....I sent John a music track with only 4 chords on it that I had done on Jamstudio, but I don't know well enough yet how to change the chords up to change for the chorus...I asked John and he sent me this wonderful track...and I'll never forget how beautiful it is...

Listening to your music now and enjoying it...very calming, relaxing...would love to have this downloaded and playing sometimes when I can't sleep.....love it...
