I'll give a free review to the first person who types out the lyrics of any of the following songs - "Black Magician" or "White Lightning" or "River Blues" - that I have a link to on my page, and tells me what they thought of the song (see, the lyrics aren't online, so you have to actually listen to it... genius, no?).

:)

PS - I'll give reviews to three people, or two to one person and one to another, etc.

--off topic--

I was one minute away from the end of Black Magician and Myspace broke my firefox and erased all the lyrics I'd written out.

:/

I know I probably won't get the freebie for just commenting on the song, but I'm too annoyed with what happened to sit and type everything out again, SO, it was alright, not my type because I'm more into the indie rock sort of stuff. I like magic though, but I found it a bit cliche that a woman was compared to a witch and was sucking all the joy out of the guy's life and being a "black magician". *shrug*

Perhaps I will try a different, shorter song, haha.

Daily hint - White Lightning has the most repetitive lyrics, while River Blues is the easiest to understand.

LE SIGH.

Okay, let's try this again.

*waits for myspace to load (for some reason it really hates me, I don't know why, it takes like srsly 10 minutes to load. COME ON!!!!*

White Lightening:

You have no power (?)

Coming from the sky

And I draw nearer

Devil's...something something cry (?)

(OPINION: Srsly this player does not work well for trying to understand lyrics with pausing and stopping, you guys should try to find a new player, but I know Myspace is like, the only thing out there T_T)

Before I set my targets

Down in the abyss

Still I hear you now my friend (?)

Something hit and miss (?)

.....

somethingsomethingsomething

somethingsomething

the only things I love

(I'M TRYING)

...

OKAY. I give up. I'm sorry whimsical bard T_T

The player is just really frustrating me.

Critique of White Lightening without writing out the lyrics because I can't do it in the span of 1 HOUR THAT IT TAKES for my computer to work *headdesk*: It was okay, I liked it better than Black Magician, but again, not my type exactly. The lyrics, from what I was hearing, and the chorus, where ones that I liked better than Black Magician. The singer has an alright voice too, don't remember if I commented on that last time. I don't know much about the guitars and that sort of thing, but I liked the inclusion of guitar solo-ish playing (that was kind of nice about Black Magician too), you really don't hear any "rock" music anymore that will give time to display the skills of the guitar and bass and drum players.

So yeah. Sorry for failing a second time, BUT that's whut I have to say ^^

Well, that's two reviews going to lookingwest...

Are you guys really gonna let her take all the glory?!? Come, somebody step up and listen to River Blues!!

Alright, this is my best guess for White Lightning:

Young male(?) power

Coming from the sky

And as I draw nearer

There must something people die

With forces and my targets

Down in the abyss

Give a hand to you, my friend

You better pray I miss

Chorus:

White Lightning

Tearing from above

Misery and something (headache?), the only things I love

White Lightning

Send shivers down your spine

And it's something not your powers

Cuz they something (they ain't gon'?) mess with mine/something like that

Few will ever face me and live to tell the tale

Get something down, I'll track you down

My will will never fail

And if you seek protection

From me you won't defend

I'll bring 'em to and get to you

And bring you to your end

-insert Chorus-

(Something, whaaaaat?)

I swear I'll make you pay

So I suggest you go and rest and find another day

Ain't nothing you can do, ain't nothing you can say

Nothing that can save you when you're staring in my way

-insert wicked guitar solo-

You can beg for mercy

I'll spare you of your fate

This something will never/rather end

My end will never be

High in the streets,

And Celebration by his birth/word? (I'm leaning on birth)

The devil joins you something-us

Something is my return

-insert Chorus-

White Lightniiiiiiiiiing.

Ahaha, that is the best I can do. And I'm partly deaf because I already listen to my music too loud. As for the song, well, you already know what I think but I'll just repeat. I think it's great. It's got this kind of almost 70s-80s rock feel to it. It's not slow but not fast, but the perfect pace to sing along to (if you know the lyrics, ahahaha). I really like the voice of your lead singer. He reminds me so much of the lead from Cage the Elephant. But I do think he should get into it more. Feeeeeeeeeel the music, man. Since there is no video, we have no visual cues to let us know he's indeed into it so he has to put it in his voice. I think he coulda done a better job on that. But other than that, some interesting lyrics. A kind of "I can kill you and I know it" vibe to the whole thing and it's like the narrator is taunting the whole time, dangling the person's life in front of them and going "Hm, should I or shouldn't I?" And that guitar solo was sexy. Very sexy.

Ahaha, and I'm sorry I most probably butchered the lyrics.

Aaaaaaand that's all she wrote! Two reviews to lookingwest, one review to Dee! And, because you both reviewed, I'll be sending you both the lyrics of the songs you guessed - and yes, that is shameless self-promotion. :)

CLOSED!

This is my first freebie so I hope I don't screw this up. XD

I'll give one Depth review on a story to the person who can guess my favorite Twilight Zone episode.

Hint: It's from the original run of the show (1959-1964), not the 80s version or 2002 revival.

Oh, I'm looking for the title, btw. So that's what you're guessing. XD Kinda an important detail.
