New opening theme idea
« on: September 04, 2007, 08:22:42 am »
I have an idea for his new opening theme. post your own too!
(mods, you may merge if there is an other thread about this)

This new theme goes under queens 'flash gordon theme'. you can hear it here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNf9rEPoc8Q&mode=related&search=

I've edited the lyrics for the show, here they are:

Steve - Ah - Saviour of the universe
Steve - Ah - He'll inform ev'ry one of us

Seemingly there is no reason for these
Extraordinary intergalactical upsets
What's happening GamingSteve?
Only Broadcaster Gaming Steve formerly at the gameindustry
Has provided any explanation

Steve - Ah - He's a miracle

This mornings unprecedented delay
Is no cause for alarm

Steve - Ah - King of the impossible

He's for ev'ry one of us
Stand for ev'ry one of us
He'll inform with a mighty voice
Ev'ry man ev'ry woman ev'ry child
With a mighty podcast

General EA, Gaming steve's approaching
What do you mean Gaming steve's approaching?
Open fire! all weapons!
Dispatch war rocket FIFA 08 to bring back his podcast

Steve - Ah
steve's alive...
Steve - Ah - He'll inform ev'ry one of us
Just a man with a man's microphone
He knows more than a gamer
and he can never fail
No one but the pure in voice
May have a golden podcast oh oh oh oh

Steve, Steve I love you
But we only have fourteen hours to make a podcast!


STEVE!

Interesting idea.
Would take some good voice actors
and a good Queen tribute band though.

Wow, that is great. How did you know that Flash Gordon is one of my favorite movies of all time, I love Queen and that song is in my top 10 favorite songs of all time.

If someone actually recorded that song and it sounded pretty professional (I'm not looking for 100% professional like I did for my opening but something which is definitely close to professional level) I'd totally play that on the show.

Very awesome.

I might just do that,

I think though the whole track would be a little long for a theme tune, might need to cut it a bit

I'll email you when it's done.

Sure!

It might take a while though as I'm also working on my album.

Being a total perfectionist won't help either...

Well next week is GDC ... and it's, by far, the busiest time for the site.

If you get it to me, and it's acceptable in terms of quality and such, I'll play it for next week's show!

No pressure or anything...

Sorry I couldn't get it to you for episode 70, something cropped up.

I expect to be able to finish it in the next few days.

Yeah, I've been fairly busy recently, but I've done most of the song.

I may just polish up what I have done now and submit that instead, it'll take me ages to find the time to finish the whole track.

Right, I've uploaded the track to my Gmail, hopefully the location of the file won't change.

EDIT: {Broken Link} Scroll down for working one

Enjoy!

Nice! glad you like it.

I can still play the one on gmail, but probably because it knows I am accessing it from my IP.

Anyway, here's the file uploaded to a free file hosting site, looks like you're gunna have to save it though, I'm not sure it allows you to stream it.

I got a message back from Steve about it saying he would play it on the next show. He also said he was thinking of getting it re-recorded as he has access to professional musicians, singers etc.

If Mike is going to redo the song he should keep the dialogged parts of the song, the British accent gives it a nice touch.

Glad you said that, I did try doing an American accent but it just sounded ridiculous so I just did it with my own. If it does get remade, I would be happy to send him the audio samples, even if my singing is rubbish!

I am surprised that you even had an expectation of my voice, if you're talking about the villain with the russian accent, I did transpose it a little bit.

Not so much an expectation as I thought it was deep for your age which really doesn't mean much as everyone is different. I guess you sound older than what I expected for 16. It was good, my compliments.  :)

Yeah it'll take a while I expect. It's funny how every time he starts up there's two or three shows then none for a few months.

But the shows awesome so I can't really complain!
