so i was helpin out at the Boston Regional this weekend and i heard the two songs that were made about FIRST…i was thuroughly amuzed and got the idea to want to play those songs live at nationals with students on robotics teams…personally i want nerds to do it me being one myself (unofficially official lol) unfortunately idk if im goin to make it to nationals…but i think it would be cool if we could get a band of nerds to play the FIRST songs…if any of the nerds know how to play drums, bass, and guitar…and sing too…let me know cause i wanna go up and rock out!!!
Nothing like spelling out FIRST in the middle of the field… Yea I got to be the “T” That was amusing, as well as the giant chicken dance turned mosh pit esque field reset crew dance time… That was amusing. Field reset people really have the most fun at one of these events.
Edit: Oh and while I am sure FIRST loves the song if I hear it anymore any time soon I think I might run and hide… There is only so many times you can hear FIRST spelled out. /Edit
ha ha ha i agree…they need to make it a full song instead of a 1.5 minute or so loop. i cant wait until the songs are available to download…although by then we will probably kill anyone that plays them lol.
I heard BOTH of the newly-released FIRST songs at the Boston Regional.
I can fully understand the FIRST organization wanting or needing to create their own music for both an “identity” plus i suspect that royalties are being paid to play the official FIRST playlist at a public venue each time.
Therefore, why don’t we suggest to Dean that he contract with several music houses to come-up with FIRST songs that sound MOST LIKE …(fill-in your favorite song).
By the way, I did indeed see people inthe stands lip-syncing the new FIRST tunes even after only hearing them played once or twice…are they “catchy”…?
I wouldn’t mind a Blue Man Group song. Truthfully, if there was a neither, I would have chosen it mainly because by limiting FIRST to a single anthem is kinda silly and…I didn’t really like either one. I chose the second primarily because it sounded a little heavier in the bass.
Oh and contract directly with a band rather than a music house. It would be a lot cheaper and easier, plus you wouldn’t get rootkits installed on your computer if you tried to play the CD.
When I first listened to these songs, I wasn’t really liking either of them. After listening to them a couple times I came to the conclusion that Song 1 sounded like it would be good in a commercial or promo video for FIRST and Song 2 sounded like they were trying to rip of Weezer. Since there wasn’t a “neither” option I decided to vote for Song 1 because it seems like it could be used better then Song 2.
I have to say I’m a little SHOCKED by these. Was this the best FIRST could come up with?
Why didn’t they ask students/mentors to maybe work together to come up with lyrics for a possible theme song!
SCARY! I voted for the first one, because, it’s less…pre-school?
