Pacific Ridge Records Need Help Picking The Movielife Songs
 
Pacific Ridge Records are asking for song suggestions for The Movielife tribute.
Message From The LabelI have some quality news. With the hard work and dedication of some terrific artists we're successfully knocking out the majority of The Movielife catalog. Unfortunately there are plenty of tremendous songs left uncovered. Obviously I'm aiming to correct that travesty but I need some help in doing so.

Below is a list of songs that have not been selected, and in my opinion are absolutely vital if the compilation is to live up to expectations:

Champ
Racer
Operate
Another Friend
Me and You Vs. Them
Scary
Sailor Tattoos
Barefoot
Speed Demon
Read My Lips
Maybe It's Nothing
Except Me
One Way Ticket
How Can You Even Face Me
I Hope You Die Soon

Let me know which of these tracks you would like to see covered and I will do my damndest to see to it that a band is recruited to conquer the song. I'll try my best to focus on the most popular suggestions. Just remember that all the songs not listed above have already been chosen.

an electric cover of sailor tattoos would be pretty sweet

I suggest not doing a tribute of a band that is impossible to cover. Thanks.

It says any song not listed is already chosen. So they went 40 train heavy, which I'm a fan of. Of the tracks that haven't been chosen, my top 4 choices in order are 1.Sailor Tattoos 2.Scary 3.Operate 4.I Hope You Die Soon

Whoops, didn't read the fine print, thanks! And your list actually looks pretty good to me. Count me down for yours x2.

So much this.

GetUpAndrew 04/09/12 02:08 PM

My own pick would be How Can You Even Face Me?, then I Hope You Die Soon. Yeah, I'm a sucker for This Time Next Year.

sleepyseanzzz 04/09/12 02:12 PM

get with the punches on it

drewcifer 04/09/12 02:45 PM

HAND GRENADE! my band has covered it live a few times, and its so much fun.

would be disappointed if it didn't make it onto a tribute album.

OTMOP 04/09/12 02:55 PM

Didn't Such Gold do an I Hope You Die Soon cover? why not just throw that on there?

*Ro' 04/09/12 03:00 PM

"Another Friend".

PerfectChaos337 04/09/12 03:30 PM

Operate, Scary, and I Hope You Die Soon get my vote. the super old Movielife stuff has charm to it, but doesn't do much for me personally. The deeper cuts from Gambling Problem and TTNY will be cool to hear though. Interested to see what bands they get for this and how the songs come out. Tribute albums are always a tough thing to pull off.

I think I mentioned it before in the last thread, but ICF covered "It's Something"...hoping this comes out relatively soon, looking forward to it.

in serious need of Jamestown.

also, This Is Hell's cover of I Hope You Die Soon is rad, but they probably can't put it on another comp.
