I_am_the_best
On another forum I frequent, we did a karaoke sing along to the song Build Me Up, Buttercup by The Foundations, and as this was pretty sucessful there, I wondered how many people would be interested to do something similar here.

It would involve anyone who wished to participate recording themselves singing it then sending them all to one person to edit together, but it sounds pretty good, here's the other one as an example.

But, first things first, has anyone got any suggestions for what song we should sing?
Kitty
Woohoo!

Putting on the Ritz.
LoLo
Masochism tango.
Ashbless
To startle and amuse Mata we could sing that version of Jesus loves me someone filked.

"Mata loves us this we know, 'cause the forums tell us so. All our souls to him belong. We are weak while he is strong."

Okay, I'm done. Wandering away again.
Moosh
F*ck Her Gently

And I blame you for my confusion after seeing my thread under your name Emma.
oscarhilton
Matazone karaoke all the way!
{Gothic Angel}
I'd be up for that, but you'd have to pick a song I knew and/or liked tongue.gif

Although I'd imagine it could get interesting with a variety of tempos and keys...

The fact that song even exists kind of scares me...

Yep! In the the Build Me Up, Buttercup, the very last sung line is in a completely different key. But generally if you listen to your line several times before recording it you should get it alright. rolleyes.gif

How are we to decide which song to do?

We could have an Audioscrobbler fight and then poll for the top five.

Wouldn't really work all that well. If you look at the current top tracks, the number 1 was listened to by a whole four people. And it's not even Something Corporate's best song.

Even if we asked everyone to listen to whichever track they want us all to sing, there's still only 39* people in the matazone group and a good proportion of them will either not see this post or choose not to take part.

Also: MEMBERSHIP DRIVE! Hey, folks. Sign up to the Matazone group over at last.fm! The more of you who sign up, the more accurate a representation of these forums the charts are!

*Hey, two more people have joined since I last looked. Hello Bompity and WednesdayCafe.
elphaba2
Hmmph.

Matazonians, un-diversify your music tastes. Do it now.

(also, I'm signing up for the group, having had a last-fm account for all of four days now. That'll bring it to a nice round 40.)

I, personally have damn near perfect aural to oral repetition skills tongue.gif But I know what you mean.

Maybe find out in this thread who's willing to take part, everyone who wants to take part suggest a few songs, and then we have a vote?
Mutilation
You could always do a Matazone version of the live aid song laugh.gif
Phyllis
I'm not willing to take part because I never sing in front of people.

But I still think the song should be "F*ck her Gently."

biggrin.gif
I_am_the_best
^Aww! Go on - I dare you tongue.gif

I'm willing to spoil all of your eardrums and I think that F*ck her Gently is a good choice of song too.
Mutilation
One problem with me singing is that my vocal range only alows for me to do "Love Will Tear Us Apart" by Joy Division dry.gif .
Moosh
I'll sing but it won't be in tune.

And as I suggested it, I too think F*ck Her Gently would be good.
CrazyFooIAintGettinOnNoPlane
that sounds awesome!

I can't sing at all but I might attempt to if we choose a good song that I know unsure.gif
Phyllis
For anyone who has not heard "F*ck her Gently" (and because the animation cracks me up)

Warning: the following link contains naughty language and animated depictions of sex! It is probably not suitable for the younger crowd: Animation!
Feyliya
I'm up for the challenge. Why not? I'm even willing to do F*ck Her Gently, if that's what we decide on (though I'll have to try to keep from cracking up if that's the one tongue.gif).

But why does it have to be the same song for everyone? Are we going to compile it all into one big Matazone choir when we've all done it?

*Edit
Nevermind, re-read the first post. That's what I get for posting half-asleep.
Phyllis
Well since I was dared.... tongue.gif

I will join. But it won't be in tune. And I want to be able to choose which part I sing!
mooooooooooopo
I will join in assuming nobody cares for the sanctity of their ears.

If I post the lyrics to the song then people can take lines they want. I'll wait a bit longer though, although F*ck Her Gently has the majority vote, I'm guessing.

Neither do I, not that I would join in... I seriously cannot sing, but I don't think it's a good choice!
Do something by the Dresden Dolls! Hehe

Why is it not a good choice? tongue.gif

Also, do any of the other choices have more than one vote each?
{Gothic Angel}
I was actually going to suggest Feeling Good -either the muse version or the Nina Simone version. It's easy, repetitive, nice song.

And people won't feel embarassed singing it tongue.gif

You could sing the part about bringing her flowers and ordering her favorite dish from Zanzibar? happy.gif
Usurper MrTeapot
F*ck Her Gently?

*MrTeapot's Stamp Of Approval*
Daria
If only I could join in, but alas! Lack of microphone.
F**k Her Gently is a fab choice though biggrin.gif
Feyliya
Just a thought but this is a family friendly forum and we do have some pretty young members here. As fun a choice as F*ck Her Gently would be, maybe we should pick something that younger members can sing without worrying about mom or dad hearing them in the next room and grounding them for listening to dirty lyrics (point: we don't even fully type out the name, we use an * for the "u" because it's a "naughty word").
Phyllis
That's true, Fey. There are a lot of youngin's about, in spite of a forum title that makes my mom wonder if I'm reading porn when I look at the forums on her computer (the "mature readers" thing tongue.gif ).

Are there any other funny, yet clean choices?

OH! How about Skullcrusher Mountain? biggrin.gif For awhile 4 of the top 10 fans of that song on last.fm (back when it was just plain audioscrobbler.com) were Matazonians. If you haven't heard the song, you can do so completely legally here, on Jonathan Coulton's homepage. Just click "download music."

It's clean, if slightly psychotic (in a funny, sarcastic way). I don't think any parents would object, really. And you have to love a guy who has this as the description for one of his CDs:

A 5-song EP about losers, giant squids and mathematics. If that doesn’t get your motor running, I’m afraid we have nothing to discuss.


*walks away singing about half-pony half-monkey monsters*
Usurper MrTeapot
Or we can do F*ck Her Gently this time and do a more family fun one next time if it works.
Feyliya
Score! Skullcrusher Mountain has my vote! Nicely psychotic!
Phyllis

Are you planning on singing? ohmy.gif

Hmm. We could always do F*ck her Gently as an IRC singalong. I have NO problem with kicking people out for being too young for the way we talk there (to be fair, I also don't make money from it, thus it's easier for me).
Usurper MrTeapot
Course I'd sing. I have no idea what Skullcrusher Moutain is *edit* Found it, for those who don't want to pay a dollar they can listen to it on Last.fm *close edit*

I'd rather have FHG. More of a sing along song.

You can get it for free on Jonathan Coulton's homepage as well. There's just an option to buy if you *want* to donate to him, cause he's a cool guy like that.

Here's a link to where you can download the song for free on his homepage

I'm leaning towards Jonathon Couton--I've been a fan since I heard "Better" on some podcast or other. Then again, I've not even heard "Skullcrusher" yet.

Oh, go listen. Gogogogo. It makes me giggle.
Usurper MrTeapot
Perhaps a poll will decide.
Moosh
I'm happy to do Skullcrusher Moutnain if we can't do FHG, but FHG would be good too. Maybe we do both and you can just do Skullcrusher if you want?
I_am_the_best
Skullcrusher Mountain! W00t! I am ultimately happy to do either. We could always do another one later so I don't think it matters which we do. It may be a little too much if we do both at the same though, CM.
elphaba2
Oh, Skullcrusher. Mos def. Can I have dibs on part of the monkey/pony verse?
Phyllis

Feyliya
I call dibs on part of the "Golden Submarine" part. You know, the part where he's talking about igniting the atmosphere and blowing up everyone? I want part of that part. Part part part part. Heh.
I_am_the_best
Well since people seem pretty happy to do Skullcrusher, here are the lyrics. Say the line(s) you want and I'll write up who's taking what.

V3L2 Maybe you could cut me just a little slackI_am_the_best
V3L3 Would it kill you to be civil? CheeseMoose

I think this is the most logical way to do it. The line names are understandable I hope. So, uh, choose your lines! Woo...
