Song Fight Review: Circle Me

The last fight I reviewed over at Song Fight was titled "Ruthless Lately", and my favorite entry was from Yardley Social Scene. They not only got my top pick, but they won that fight. A new batch of songs can be found over at Song Fight, so I suggest you go pick your favorite songs for the current round.

My favorites from the fight Circle Me are posted below.

Would Have Voted For:
(Right Click "Save As" on the artist's name for a MP3 of their entry.)

Minty Handy - A song from the POV of a wrong answer? This is actually pretty cool, certainly a neat idea. Well done sir.

Steve Durand - I liked this. Very different from what I expected from Steve. This type of song doesn't require a great voice, and that's a good thing for Steve. (use lyric forum)

Scott Gesser - Fran Drescher would love this. This boarders on the line between entertaining & annoying...for now it's leaning towards entertaining. Nice work.

(Head over to Song Fight to listen to these songs.)

Infinity Point Buck - Enjoyed the flow. Some of the lines I thought were clever while others felt weak & out of place. The music sucked.

Ross Durand - Enjoyable little tune, but not really my style of music. Just a bit slow for my liking. Sweet song though. (use lyric forum)

Billy and the Psychotics - Vocals got lost in the mix a bit at times, and overall I just couldn't get into this. Felt messy.

Didn't Ask, Didn't Tell - Lyrically it didn't grab me, the vocal performance was ok, but in the end it didn't stand out.

DJ Ranger Den - I enjoyed the lyrics through the first part of the song, and I'm kinda glad your changes didn't make it into the song you entered. It was too slow for me, and as usual, there were lines I just didn't care for or completely get later in the song.

EggNogAdam - 3 votes was your goal, and you got 9. I don't know how...I mean meta songs should be kickass to get votes...cause there are too many of them in these type of contests.

Juliette Echo - Like the concept, but the lyrics didn't really flow as much as stumble along. Musically it held my interest.

Kapitano - Interesting experiment, but not exactly something I would sign up to participate in.

McCalum - Nice to see someone take on the topic that I imagine inspired the title. Not much replay value, but I would suggest a quick YouTube video of this.

MC Who Izzy Feat: The Standardized Individual - The vocals sounded like shit. Especially "you say circle him once or twice / when he's been left to his own devices / you say circle him once again / but I won't have his blood on my hands" You really need a better mic or something.

The Big Trees (1952)

This isn't really a musical, but it does have 1 song & dance number in it. Since I've been slow to post here, I figured...why not post it. This film stars Kirk Douglas, Eve Miller & Edgar Buchanan. It's not a bad film, but I wouldn't recommend watching it unless you're just a big Kirt Douglas fan. Alan Hale Jr. (Skipper) has a small role, but isn't important to the story.

Since it's not really a musical I won't get into the details of the film, but if you want to watch it, it's public domain & easy to find. (The Big Trees)

The Soubrette On The Police Gazette
This number by Patrice Wymore was my favorite part of the film.
