Also, I googled it and found it on grooveshark with all the relevant AP info. The link is below; how's that for verifying it?

Sorry for the triple post, but the grooveshark link didn't work.

The ID is 394727. The track name is "Night Shift Sky Captain" by mooseymaniac.

Turns out all he did was change the name to A Simple Dream. So don't worry about it, it's not deleted!

I dunno. I guess we can review it, why not, but since it's not a new submission it's not eligible to win anything.

Yay, thanks dudes <3

I'm taking my time to listen to all of the submissions and i love this one, wouldn't be surprised if it topped. But of course this isn't for me to decide. Best of luck, I'm rooting for you.

Here is my entry:

http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/530450?updated=1

This song I covered:

  • The massacre (chipsounds)
    The massacre (chipsounds) by Fantomenk

    A video game sounding tune

    Score
    4.51 / 5.00
    Type
    Song
    Genre
    Video Game
    Popularity
    5,266 Views

I wanted to make an orchestral cover, or piano rendition, but in practice it turned out the melody and chords etc don't really lend themselves for anything other than dance. Also I liked the chiptune like sound of the original, so I tried to do something like that as well. Even though I stay in the same genre the same mood and even use some similar sounds, I think it's different enough. Whether it's actually good is for you to decide.

I just thought that I would ask this here...

Can we agree that it might be in bad taste to cover a song that was written by one of the judges?
I did consider it, but then a part of me decided against it because I thought it might be in bad taste. I think to be safe I'll stick to a song by a non-judge, but I'm not sure about the other contestants.

We can just get a backup judge or something for those cases.

I don't think that's a good idea. There weren't any rules against it previously, so there may already be a lot of people working on covers from songs by the judges.

That would be a better solution I think. Though that means not all submissions are judged by the same people, so aren't judged equally. Then again, each song is judged by at least 3 out of 4 of the same judges, so it should not make too much of a difference.

Personally I think I'll still be able to be unbiased if a song of mine were to be covered, because even if it's my song being remixed, I can still tell if the production quality is crap, the structure is all over the place, etc, and I'm sure the other judges are able to do so as well. Therefore I didn't say anything against it in the rules (that, and like any other normal musician, I have that shameful and deep desire to have a track of mine covered too :3).

It's entirely up to you guys; if any of you want to cover a judge's song, feel free to do so, and if you feel safer with a backup judge, then I have no problem looking for one. The reason why I personally don't feel it's a good idea to get a backup judge is because if the backup judge I get is harsher or less harsh scores-wise than the judge I'm replacing, this could turn the tables, but like I said, up to you.

Yeah the backup judge option seems reasonable if the contestant desires.

Thanks for clearing everything up!

Don't be so sure... From our sigs you have a better track record in contests than I have (furthest I've ever gotten is third, third, third...)

At any rate, I've done my best -- and whatever happens from this point on happens.

I have a really good remix going on but it's not a cover. So I'd hate to get low scores and AIDS because of that

I don't know about the AIDS but you might get low scores since the guidelines clearly discourage participants from relying too heavily on samples from the original.

:s I'm not really sure what you mean by that but again the original post makes it fairly clear to everyone how their songs will be judged:

Your songs will be judged on the usual factors that make up a high-quality piece of music such as composition, instrumentation, mixing/mastering, structure, etc... However even though this is a remix competition we're still looking for originality! Any entries that are creative and interpret the original song in unique and good ways will get extra points from us.

By the way, for anyone who's interested: I've gathered the originals and covers/remixes into this little playlist. Makes it easier for me and many others to review.
