Alright gentle Shizzpersons, it's time to get going on the next edition of Nevar Say Die. It's a little earlier in the year this time, but that's because the only comps that yours truly is working on are still in the pipeline (as well as mostly done) and not PUNCHING ME IN THE FACE like the heavy-hitting Willow comp was last year. :P

Anyway, the requirements are as follows:

- Your song: an original or a video game cover. I'd prefer originals, but if you've got an amazing VG cover that you want to unleash upon the world, go for it. All I ask is that you try your best to keep things under the five minute mark so we can have more people participating.

- Files: submit your song as a .wav file. If you're uncomfortable mastering your own song, I can certainly give it a shot. Either way, PM me with your file(s) once you're done.

- Deadline: September 22nd, 2009 at 11:59:59 PM PST. Three and a half months should be plenty of time, even with 3+ months to procrastinate. This should lead to a little earlier turnaround (early/mid October), so there'll be more time to sell them and MAGFund dispersal won't be as hectic this year. :)

Sign up, then get rockin! I anticipate awesomeness (per usual). B)

Notes to persons:
- weener: if you're up for it, would you want to do art for this and complete the trifecta? - Thank you!
- raub & streifig: I think we should do some Mongolian extremely snowy winter tunage for this. - We do this!

Nevar Say Die! Compilation, Volume Three will start off with Why Can't We Be Friends by Smashmouth

first of all, funky fm music just really does it for me.  Even if it's something corny like early mariah carey I can get way into the music with the fm bass and keys going on.   Then, there's everything else in this song.  The enigmatic title.  The synth programming brings out all the right emotional responses in me:  leads that remind me of thunderforce (even if the portamento isn't quite as exaggerated), chording synths that remind me of very old and charming genesis osts like super monaco (except somehow they don't sound as flimsy here), and of course a solid bass.  Great original motifs, interesting harmonies, good melody, rhythm.. everything that can make a song great is here!

The current guitar player from Smash Mouth posts on another forum I post on. It's kind of weird.

Also getting something done in 3 months will be tuff but oh well I guess.

What types of songs are applicable to this? I was working on a Sparkster and Sephiroth rap (The Sephiroth rap I can produce myself, but not the Sparkster one without help). Is that OK?

I don't know - we haven't had any rap on the last two NSD releases. :huh:

I guess what it would come down to is how well you think either of those tracks would fit on a compilation mostly filled with rock, metal, and chiptunes.
