SpinTunes Round #1

SpinTunes LogoIt has been a while since I last undertook a musical challenge. Song Fu has passed on, but in its place has risen SpinTunes. This is a similar set of challenges to Song Fu, but with a judging panel rather than a public vote. I missed the deadline for the competition itself, but did complete a song nevertheless. Here it is:-

You can download the tune here or visit the album page where all the tracks submitted to the competition can be downloaded in a single file. All for free!

  1. Thanks Russ, your feedback is welcome!

    Yes, that is an eBow that you hear – the rest of the instrumentation is fairly standard – bass, electric guitar, piano and drums.

    I have sent the lyrics through now that you’ve reminded me, so they should appear on the Bandcamp page, but here they are as well:

    There’s a boy scout, a bat and an Amazon
    Some guy with wings on his head
    A bunch of dudes with ring fetishes
    And a Robin Hood wannabe
    They’re the team who’re supposed to be
    Keeping us safe in our bed

    But they don’t want me in
    Their super-team
    They’ve got all the powers they need
    (So they say)
    They don’t care that I can
    Move planets with a thought
    “We’ve got your number
    We might call you some day…”

    [Verse 2]
    There’s a defrosted patriot, a drunk tin man,
    A wife-beating giant-come-ant
    A thunder god with a boomerang hammer
    And a Robin Hood wannabe
    They’re the team that’s supposed to be
    Protecting when webcrawlers can’t

    Enjoyed “They Don’t Want Me.” Nice to hear more shadows, even now. Cool instrumentation! Are you playing an eBow? Could you get Travis “Spintown” Langworthy a copy of the lyrics, so he can put them on the bandcamp page? Currently your song is the only one without lyrics there.
