This is round 2 of VSP Island.

Round 1, with the results of the poll, can be found here:

VSP Island, Game 1, Round 1

Here are the "rules" of the game from Round 1:

 Quote:
Rules
- VSP members listen and vote for their LEAST FAVORITE song, and whichever song receives the most votes, that artist gets voted off VSP Island, and they are out of the game.
- The artists still in the game for the next round, need to submit a new song for each round, if they can. Those who do not have enough songs for all rounds, can submit a previously used song.
- The poll runs from Monday - Friday (but could change depending on how this goes). The poll will be blind, meaning you cannot see the results immediately after you vote, and results will be displayed on Friday, after the poll ends.
- For those still in the game, you will have from late Friday - late Sunday to submit your next song.
- Rounds will continue until there is one remaining song/artist. That person will be the winner of Game 1 of VSP Island.
- Prizes for the winner will include a bad CD from Wish, and all the beer you can drink at Doughboy's house (beer and transportation not included).


Here are some other rule refinements from DAGtunes that sounded fine with me, but there wasn't a lot of discussion from the participants.

 Originally Posted By: DAGtunes
Now that we've gone through round 1, I think a few things should be clarified/refined:

~ Previous rounds' songs should be removed for the next round, to free up space at SoundCloud.
~ Contest Soundcloud account is the preferred place to load the songs, so as to lessen the confusion of other tracks playing that are not in the contest on each of our own Soundcloud (or other) accounts.
~ Songs should be loaded up with just the song name. Let the music do the talking. Attaching an artist name to it can have an impact on the perception of the song.
~ So that artists can be recognized for their work, at the end of the round there should be a "recap" of who submitted what.
~ Since we already went there, I guess "covers" and any/all other "audio recordings" (NOT video, please...) can be put into the running.
~ We're running a little bit on the "honor" system here that each artist will submit a different (than previous) track each round.
~ We will continue voting off the LEAST FAVORITE track each week, until further notice. (Perhaps when we get to the last 5 or last 3 we vote for the best? As suggested by Jazzooo...)
~ Critiques of the songs within the thread are fine. Hopefully people vote on what they hear, and not what they read...

All of that sound about right?

My God, what a field! Some great stuff in here I've never heard!

Think of it this way: You're on a desert island with a device that can only hold 13 songs in it's memory, and it is your only source of music on this island.

Which song do you not keep?

Bump - just want to make sure this stays on the first page.

There are some fine tunes on there. Very, very hard decision.

i just voted - tougher this time.

"Mr Wobbly Legz #3" just screams out for some "Squirrel Nut Zippers" or "Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks" lyrics.

i also really liked "In Some Other Time" - reminds me of an old Martin Mull tune - "Am I In Heaven Or Am I In Miami"

If you go to the soundclick page, through the link in my sigline, it is there (on my music page), where it is sitting at number 12 in blues covers.

Man, this is a good round. How did Todd Rundgren slip in there? So far, I hear one that I might have considered the least favorite due to the vocal performance that is sometimes spot on, sometimes not. And then guitar solo kicked in and I started appreciating the overall recording more. Strange, I felt like there were two Silversmith songs--the first Lucky to Have Her and then Some Other Time. I think that second one is him based on piano playing now. Both cool, both using some unexpected chord changes that I enjoyed.

this is difficult.. everyone is so good.. so far I've done the cliff notes thing.. the beginning__ 3 to 5 times in the middle__ and the ending.. I must listen again .. that is what happens when one studied to become a DJ.. see if it has a beginning hook to keep you.. see if the middle doesn't drag and a good ending..

hmmmm does this make me one of those musicoligigst thinkies er thinges?

good work folks \:\)

Lucky to Have Her

Don't mean to unmask anyone, but it'd be hard to hide Jimmy's great voice anyhow. Jimmy, I suspect, does all his recording in pro studios these days. This thing is heavy on the rich sonics. It's a country soul song with a nice fancy chord or two pulling the melody into a memorable twist. Great work. We need to kill him.

With Each Passing Hour

Pop's clearly an able producer and player. This song has some nice chord changes, but the melody doesn't really grab me in. He plays organ well. No jokes.
