View Full Version : Karaoke contest :)
05-10-2008, 08:09 PM
Anyone here like to sing? :)
Well this is a contest for all of you. I put up my first small little karaoke song on Youtube and, well I'll explain later, but anyways I've put up the video and the contest will go as follows.
You will sign up here, then you will go on Youtube and, using the background of my music, will sing the song and upload it as a video reply to it. I will then listen to everyone and announce here, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Then I will keep uploading New Songs ( I will listen to requests :)) and start a new round, this is really just for fun, so don't worry about being American Idol or anything, this is just so people can hear you, and so everyone can have fun, I mean who doesn't like Karaoke right?
Well hopefully people will enjoy this, remember, it doesn't matter what song it is, or who sings it (boy or girl) you can do it to :) Just try, this will be fun :)
So, who wants to sign up first? :)
05-10-2008, 08:19 PM
Ooo, this looks fun. I would love to sign up only thing is, I don't have a YouTube account. Also what in the world is the song going to be?
If I can find a way to figure this out, I will definitely try.
05-10-2008, 08:26 PM
umm... the song will be disclosed once people sign up for the round, if that doesn't work then I'll start to tell everyone before they sign up.
and as for the youtube video... well you could just actually record yourself, and send me the file over Yahoo/MSN/ ETC...
I'll show you how to record if you don't know how later, just ask if you don't know :)
05-10-2008, 08:27 PM
I'd LOVE to join, but my windows 98 can't load crap onto the internet, so sorry...:(
05-10-2008, 08:31 PM
Well, I know who I can record myself. I have a camera which I can do it with. Then my dad and I can find a way to get it up on my website then just post the link here. If everyone is OK with me just trying, I'll do it.
05-10-2008, 08:34 PM
Yay, we have one member :)
And sorry Raf, it would have been a lot of fun if you could do it too :)
Anyone else going to try, oh, and here's the first song.
05-10-2008, 08:35 PM
I can try on my moms computer cause my one is still windows 98 :(
but I cant do it to night( now) my mom is sleeping in her room
05-10-2008, 08:37 PM
Umm, I have no idea what this song is. At all. Nothing, sorry.
05-10-2008, 08:37 PM
You too, huh Simone? :(
I might see if I can give it a go on my school computer (That beautiful, gorgeous, high-powered, non-lagging, widescreen MAC!)...that is, if the admin's of the school don't cath me...
05-10-2008, 08:40 PM
I know Midnight, I wouldn't expect many to know the song at all, that's what makes this first round a little more challenging from the rest, after this, people can recommend a song, but for now you have to listen to the actual song (Not my Vid... just look up My Friends on Youtube :) ) and try to learn the rhythm.
05-10-2008, 08:43 PM
well good luck to everyone
I just posted on the forum ' Crybabies' it is quite a good Idea
Sorry for hijaking this forum :D
05-10-2008, 08:49 PM
Sounds good. Sign me up and get ready for the laugh of your life. :laugh:
05-10-2008, 08:53 PM
Car should join up. I'd love to hear him sing as a llama again! :D
05-10-2008, 09:14 PM
Time is running out!Report to yotube at once!!!
made you scroll all the way down mwahahaha!
( sorry that was totaly random and I dont normaly do that, sorry)
05-10-2008, 09:19 PM
grr... total spam Simone :P
attempt to control yourself next time k? :)
so, so far I have Midninght and Shadow
Simone and Rafael aren't sure if they have the technology to do it...
is that right?
05-10-2008, 09:50 PM
I think so. So I actually have to sing that song. Does Shadow know it? Cuz if he don't maybe we could do something else. No sure though. You're running this things GeorgeMichael.
05-10-2008, 09:53 PM
sorry about that, I am felling very stupid, silly and random today. I am not usualy like that.sorry........:(
yes thats right
05-10-2008, 09:55 PM
How about a disney song, would everyone be ok with that? I'm sure people would know it :)
05-10-2008, 10:37 PM
I'll sign up my girlfriend. She'll sing for me and I'll take the prizes.
05-10-2008, 11:00 PM
disregard the previous link, I've put up a new one (same song) but this one has the lyrics light up when you need them.
I'm discussing in the chatroom what common song to put up next though for the people who signed up :)
Ok I think I'm going to put up two songs for the first round.
Be Our Guest for the guys
and Part of Your World for the Girls
or I can maybe alternate
Kiss the Girl for BOG
Beauty and the Beast for Part of Your World.
what do you all think? I need replies as quickly as possible :)
05-11-2008, 09:37 PM
Sorry for the double post but I have to give the links now.
Here is the first round of the Karaoke contest. People may enter at any time that they choose (until the round ends of course) and they may choose any of the songs on this list.
The theme for this round is Sweeney Todd but since most people have never heard it I've included two other songs in there as well.
1.Play the karaoke version on your computer and record it with you singing along. (If you have problems recording, PM me and I'll try to help you I.E find you a free software that will do it, or something like that)
2. Save that file and send it to me through E-Mail or whatever is most convenient. Uploading to youtube not necessary, and no longer recommended :)
3. I will judge them upon receiving and secretly score them. Once I feel all people have given their songs I will announce the winner.
4. Have fun.
here are the links to the songs.
Portal- Still Alive (GIRL)
Sweeney Todd- The Worst Pies in London (GIRL)
Sweeney Todd- No Place Like London (GUY)
Sweeney Todd- Johanna/Smoke (GUY)
Beauty and the Beast- Be Our Guest (GUY)
The Little Mermaid- Part of Your World (GIRL)
Sweeney Todd- My Friends (GUY)
Sweeney Todd- Poor Thing (GIRL)
hey cool, it was unintentional but there are an equal amount of girl songs and guy songs :)
Well, good luck, have fun :)
05-11-2008, 09:43 PM
OK, even though this song is super corny. I'll do Part of Your World. I will try my very best at how I am going to do this. But I have a plan! :)
05-11-2008, 09:44 PM
All righty then :)
Midnight Moon is doing Part of Your World!
How many others challenge her? :) :P
05-11-2008, 10:05 PM
The only song that I that my girlfriend knows is Part of Your World, so I guess I'll force my mother to sing it instead.
05-12-2008, 01:31 AM
that I that my girlfriend knows
Yeah.... Right.... :)
oh and P.S, I know it's lame, but if you could comment on the videos that would be great, it raises the level.
P.S.S Thanks for commenting on my review of Super Smash Bros Brawl Car :)
05-12-2008, 12:00 PM
I'd love to sing Still Alive - never played Portal, but I am getting into Half Life.
Still, my microphone would end up giving me a WAV that sounds like gravel in a gravel-crushing sort of thing. And that's only if I hold it in JUST the right position - otherwise it won't work at all.
05-12-2008, 01:07 PM
Is there a deadline for when we need to get videos posted?
05-12-2008, 08:15 PM
No deadline, and that's ok, I'm expecting most of the audio to sound WAV like :) I tried it and mine came out like that too :) No one needs expensive equipment or hollywood quality :P
05-12-2008, 08:37 PM
Great! OK, mine might be a video but it will be just black.
05-12-2008, 09:00 PM
Ak! is it too late to enter?! i want to make a total idiot of myself! hehehe.... still alive... love that game...
i hope i can rig something up real quick!
05-12-2008, 09:55 PM
of course you can still join :)
05-13-2008, 12:32 AM
I wish there were other songs, o.O
I would so enter otherwise.
05-13-2008, 08:16 PM
Allow me to be the first to post something. Isn't my girlfriend a wonderful singer?
Part of Your World (http://www.zshare.net/audio/119749471873a1dd/)
I might do a silly version later, but otherwise, that's all you'll get from me. I doubt I can learn the other songs (much less the cockney accent) in any amount of time.
05-13-2008, 08:20 PM
Nice, I am hoping to recording tonight. Soon really soon.
05-13-2008, 11:08 PM
Hey guys sorry for double posting but MAN! I'm having a huge problem with how I sound. I keep screwing up when doing the original so I did a remix (which was better) as well. I am hoping to get them uploaded onto the computer soon and post them.
Note to everyone: Part of Your World is a really bad song to show how I sound when I sing other songs so yeah just thought I would let you all know.
06-09-2008, 09:23 PM
ZOMG Carraka! Your gf's got a great voice! oh man, now i feel like a goon... well, i recorded myself singin that one, but i don't know how to get my recording online. what site is that? do you need an account or something? sorry, i'm kinda hopeless >.<
06-16-2008, 06:59 PM
Thanks Nanoyky, I'll tell her you said that!
I used zSHARE. It has annoying ads, and it'll delete your thing after 60 days if no one downloads it, but it suited my purpose, and I was too lazy to find something better.
06-16-2008, 07:22 PM
Car's Back!!!!!!! :) Hurray
06-18-2008, 07:12 AM
Wait a second.
Hold on here.
Carraka's a guy?
I've been on here since what--November 2007?
And I just realized that.
06-18-2008, 10:43 AM
Hey -- in the chatroom yesterday I tricked him into thinking I was eight! Just so y'all know.
06-18-2008, 12:56 PM
06-18-2008, 02:17 PM
I took some screenshots of the conversation. Would anyone like to see them?
06-18-2008, 02:40 PM
06-18-2008, 02:51 PM
I think you ought to let the other people speak for themselves.
06-18-2008, 03:38 PM
Did you really Car??? :)
I want to see that :P
06-18-2008, 03:52 PM
Scotty, what were you thinking about when you said all those "EWWW"s? o.O
06-18-2008, 04:11 PM
Wow Scotty... wow, Car got you good there...
:) That smiley's for you Scotty... enjoy it.
06-18-2008, 08:09 PM
Does anybody here have a gun?
06-18-2008, 08:17 PM
No, you can not shut Carr. You can only do that in SBS.
So back to what this thread it really about, anyone else have there karaoke thingys done? I have mine recorded I just have to get 'em uploaded.
06-18-2008, 08:19 PM
Thank you, MM for diverting a useless conversation.
That's priceless. Just priceless. XD
Scotty, remember the Mr. Pibb/Ms. Pibb thing???
Poor Scotty, poor poor Scotty. XDDDD
06-18-2008, 08:39 PM
. . . . .
I don't actually---wait.
Now I do.
06-18-2008, 08:49 PM
What was this?
And yes -- my girlfriend keeps asking whether I want her to record more stuff. x.x
In my intro thread, he called me Mr. Pibb, which was fine except that I am a MISS Pibb, so he got all embarrassed and stuff. The age just reminded me of it.
Poor Scotty, all this fun at his expense.
06-18-2008, 09:03 PM
Yeah poor Scotty, we're all ganging up on him.
06-18-2008, 09:05 PM
06-20-2008, 03:18 PM
Okay, here's why:
Croc thought I was eight too, but none of us are ganging on him.
How did he react? How did you react?
I mean ... ALL THOSE DOTS! And the indignity! We can just see it glaring through the screen. It's priceless.
06-21-2008, 04:25 AM
I'm NOT Scotsman.
Who the hell started that nickname?
06-21-2008, 11:23 AM
-points away from self-
06-21-2008, 12:07 PM
George does everything to tick me off.
He keeps winning the caption contest.
He never stops smiling in every post.
I CAN'T TAKE IT!
06-21-2008, 08:18 PM
What? Me? Scotsman? I didn't even know we were calling him that...
But I do love my smileys
:) :) :) :)
:D :D :D
06-30-2008, 02:22 AM
ZOMG i finally recorded something... well... yeah... I don't really know what to say... so... here. Yes i do realize i have a very different singing voice than my normal talking voice. *braces self* I usually don't share my singing, fyi. and generally for good reason but i thought this would be kinda fun.
part of your world.mp3 - 2.99MB (http://www.zshare.net/audio/14430526cebaae2b/)
06-30-2008, 11:23 AM
Oooh nice! I'm a bit confused though, because I couldn't hear the music in the background. Maybe my volume wasn't up enough. But it's good to know that my gf wasn't the only one willing to post her stuff online.
06-30-2008, 02:17 PM
oh woops, i think i did it with my headphones on. i kinda forget about stuff like that sometimes. I hope no one is too bothered by the lack of background music.
07-21-2008, 10:26 AM
Um, am I too late to challenge Moony?
07-21-2008, 11:30 AM
What? I'm not in charge. This is one of GeorgeMichael's contests. Ask him.
07-21-2008, 12:59 PM
Okay. Well, here it is.
Part of that World, by Hannah:
07-21-2008, 01:58 PM
I would enter.
I definitely would.
But I'm sick.
I cough about 3 times a minute.
And it's one of those coughing spasm thingies.
So just curious... when's the contest over? =\
'cause I still wanna enter.
07-21-2008, 02:09 PM
I think it's over when we get five or more people, so you have plenty of time to get well.
I just noticed there's an option to do Still Alive. I'm phoning my girlfriend. She sings that song aaall the time.
07-22-2008, 10:36 PM
I'M IN. I'M IN.
I'm sick though. >,<
But I tried!
Here's the link:
07-23-2008, 03:49 AM
Ooh, the accent actually is pretty good! And I was very much reminded of the movie, if only because I just watched it on Sunday.
My girlfriend has promised to do a recording of Still Alive, complete with voice harmonies. She also wants to find some program that can make her sound more machine-like, but I don't think we're going to bother with that.
07-23-2008, 11:35 AM
Say, I registered for this and I am trying to get it done. Is it a problem that I'm being kinda slow?
07-23-2008, 02:21 PM
not at all, Car's about to get a new recording in and we're getting more entries, I'll close it soon, but I won't shut you all out, I'll wait for your entires MM and Car's "Girlfriend" :)
07-23-2008, 04:55 PM
My girlfriend wants to apologize ahead of time for the low volume. She lost the file twice when she was almost done, and then finally switched programs. Then it was harder to edit in the harmonies, and by then she had worked for hours straight and was quite bored. So it's not entirely coordinated, but I hope to convince her to make a better version some day.
EDIT: Due to complaints, I'm going to take the file and electronically amplify it. There'll be more static, but I guess that's better than pressing your ear up to the speaker.
Right, here it is again.
Still Alive (http://www.zshare.net/audio/158304642b8f1479/)
07-24-2008, 12:04 AM
I'm doing my tonight and I'll get it up ASAP (latest time would be Sunday).
07-24-2008, 12:46 AM
Good Luck everyone!
Moony's gonna win.
07-24-2008, 12:49 AM
You never know, Zomb.
I hope twisting the original isn't against the rules cuz did add a little ME to my entry. Not a lot just did some... twisting.
07-24-2008, 12:52 AM
Isn't that the point of a cover/ karaoke?
To put a spin on it?
07-24-2008, 12:54 AM
Yes, sometimes but sometimes it suppose to be the original way.
Anyway, here it is!
Moony's Karaoke Contest Entry! (http://www.frontiernet.net/~songbird17/Karaoke%20Contest%20Entry.wav)
07-24-2008, 02:12 AM
Yeah -- with all those Part of Your World entries, it might have been better to do something more original. Perhaps Oscar should hand out several prizes, you know ... Most Original, Most Close-to-Original, etc.
07-24-2008, 02:13 AM
Yeah, that would be cool! So has everyone entered their entry?
07-24-2008, 02:15 AM
He told me he would most likely start judging after you posted yours ...
07-24-2008, 02:16 AM
07-24-2008, 02:21 AM
Maybe I should go bother him on MSN ...
07-24-2008, 11:35 AM
OK, say is he just judging or are we having a poll or something? Just asking cuz I don't know.
07-24-2008, 01:14 PM
We should call this YWO Idol.
07-24-2008, 01:32 PM
We'll need three judges.
07-24-2008, 04:34 PM
Kay, I would have definately entered, if we were allowed (instead of using a karaoke version) to play our own music. Like, on the piano or whatever. I have issues, and basically I change notes, bring things down and transpose whatchamacallits so that it's in my key :D. Again, I have issues.
P.S. I might do a silly version later, but otherwise, that's all you'll get from me. I doubt I can learn the other songs (much less the cockney accent) in any amount of time.
You meant your girlfriend might do a silly version, right? ;)
07-24-2008, 04:46 PM
If I were to sing Part of the World, it would undoubtedly be silly. I'd probably just end up chanting 'warm sand' over and over again.
07-24-2008, 08:07 PM
We should have a YWO Idol we could have four judges, our administrators and moderators. But we should let everyone choose there own songs. That would be fun.
So, when do we see how we did?
07-25-2008, 07:19 AM
Gah. Moony, your voice is amazing. I'm a choir student, though, so I will make one comment... Are you sure you're supporting with your diaphragm? If so, right on! If not so much, I think it might strengthen the tone a little.
By the way, please don't hate me. I just want to make sure you're as radical as you can possibly be. :D
07-25-2008, 11:22 AM
Yep! I'm a choir geek and yes, I was using my diaphragm. I am very good about that.
Thanks for asking though! I ain't gonna hurt you.
07-28-2008, 05:42 AM
ok, I'm putting up a poll in a new thread and closing this one :) Go there to vote for your favorite singer of all the choices
