Really tempted to do "21st Century Schizoid Man" purely because it was sampled in a recent Kanye West song ("Power" in case you cared)...then parody that song for the KW round of the Hip-Hop Specialist contest. Luckily I've already got an idea for it, so in the meantime, I'd like to know why this round will apparently suck, Matthias. I presume it's because you don't like King Crimson, but what is it about them that sucks? Just curious.

EDIT: Okay, scratch that, that song has only 12 lines in it. Time to think of something else!

I was listening to some of their songs... They're so BORING!

Their 60s stuff is Snoozesville... But then there's their 00s stuff which is pretty kick-ass metal. I'm without a doubt going to parody their 00s stuff.

Good luck on this one kids! I wonder who the hell chose Crimson. The first two albums are pretty damned good IMHO but they arent known for great lyrics..if they use them at all!. Its all about the moods and the musicianship with these guys.

You guys might want to check out this track "Heartbeat" a decidedly simpler tune with repeated chorus and verses in a more normal pop vein:

I have to admit, I haven't ever heard of this band either because I am so young. I agree with Matthias though. I'm not a big fan of their music either, a lot of it is very boring. It's hard for me to write a parody of a song I'm really not too interested in, but I guess that's a challenge I'll have to overcome  ;). Plus I'm determined to get into every round until the end since I entered so late into the competition.

That'd be adagio, who also entered Moody Blues, Enya, Aerosmith and 3 Dog Night. Interesting combination, to say the least.

Okay, I'm going with "Circus"...mainly because it has more to work with than most other KC songs. Dunno what I'm gonna do with it, but there's a lot of options (Burgers, Workers, Lurkers, the list goes on), so I'll think of something...

Incidentally, I hope no-one chooses "Cat Food". Seriously sounds like they spilled the titular substance on the keyboard and let their cat at it, then left the resultant jangly mish-mash in the final track. Real pain to listen to.

Yeah very interesting. . .the only band I really like there is Aerosmith, you kept very good track of all this TCOP, thank you, as the founder of Artistry--I'm kinda embarrassed. . .

Aw, shucks... ;)

Though TBH, I don't have a Word file for who submitted what, only one for every artist (with slots for the secret artists as they are revealed) as a way of tracking which ones are left to appear. Finding out who submitted what was just a matter of finding the thread, which involved searching for Charnstar's profile and going through his posts as I know he submitted the Skyhooks and doesn't post much.

The difference is Bungle had a great sense of humor. King Crimson has NO sense of humor, except in the song titles.

Whoops, just submitted my own fast-food-job-related parody! Hope that won't upset things for you, Matthias. At least I used a different OS (Cirkus, which has the most nonsensical lyrics I've ever heard in a song).

I get that I have 6 days...but OH. MY. CRAP.

I listened to their songs.  Well...I TRIED to listen to their songs.  How can I write a parody of something when I can't hardly stand to make it through the OS??  Ugh.

Rant over. 

I'm not giving up.  But it's going to kill me.

Seriously! I'm in the same boat as you Arwen... These songs are terrible, I'm lucky inspiration dawned on me last night.

That is what made Artistry fun...some of our individual best rounds have come from artists we despised!  I would recommend you try "Heartbeat", which I posted on page 1 of the thread. Good luck!

I have a feeling this will be the lowest participation in a single round ever! Did we have one round where only 3 people entered?

Nope. They've all been at least 5 except Lifehouse (Matthias missed that one for reasons that escape me), though that's due to the five guys who have endeavoured to be in ever round for whatever reason (you, me, Rex, Matthias and Dave). Ah, the Artistry Five...has a nice ring to it, don'tcha think?

Can I still vote on the folks who were cool enough to get something written?

Of course you can still vote. . .

King Crimson is not a typical artist, you far from suck, I had my idea Satruday, but it took me til the Wednesday to get it to where I was happy with it--

FTR--past contestants in this contest gets 3 points toward the overall total at the end for every round they vote in a round they weren't in.
