Now that we have the backing track, we need people to lay down some vocals.
(From thebarryman who will be editing the song)
Record yourself singing along with the backing track, but wear headphones so you only record your voice. Upload that file to the Soundcloud. Sing the whole song (up to the point where we have lyrics, no need to make it go on and on), and I'll edit together the parts I think are best suited to each person. If you have requests for certain lines you want to sing, I'll try to make sure you sing them unless someone else wants them too.
Don't worry about your voice and/or mic sounding bad. The goal is to get as many people to join as possible. I can do some production work to make the sound quality a little better if you have a shitty mic.
Main goals to keep in mind while you're recording: have your voice be at a level where it's not so loud that the audio file "clips" or becomes distorted, but loud enough so that you're clearly distinguishable from ambient noise in the background. And wear headphones while you're listening to the backing track, so that minimal bleeding (ideally none) of the backing track gets recorded. If you keep these goals in mind the mic quality thing won't be too much of an issue.
And in regard to if you think you have a "bad" voice -- all the better. I think it will be great for non-musician fans to be mixed in with the songsmith all-stars, because it will show the solidarity of the wide spectrum of BTLs involved in this effort.
There comes a time
When the Shek Republic and
Fensters Union must come together as one
There are podcasts dying
And it's time to lend a hand to stop
The biggest mistake of all
We can't go on
Knowing that two Daves
Can't cut out the noise of radio again
We are all a part of
the Daves of Thunder family
And the truth, you know the Daves are all we need
We are the Monkeys
We are the ones who want our podcast back
So don't stop bitching
There's a choice they're making
They're ruining our own lives
It's true they'll make a better day
Just Dave and Dave
Send them your tweets
So they'll know that someone cares
And their show will finally be let free
As Pete has shown us, in his Jacuzzi Thoughts
We all must demonstrate our moxie
Weez is on the Jerk list,
but there seems no hope at all
But if we trust in Pete,
Then Adam's show we must call,
Well well well let's realize
That Feeney can only come
juggle his balls as one
Yeah yeah yeah yeahh...
