    Dragon .. I have tried 4 times now to get your song to play .. it will play .. but it is I am sure not what you intended ... that was in hi fi .... I then went to lofi ...

    I listened to the song ...

    I cant understand the lyrics ... at all ...

    I understood the word island twice on it ...

    to be honest ... although it may just be because this is not my type of music ... but I really didnt like the song ....

    maybe if I could here what you are saying it would make a difference ...

    sorry ... Lana

    DW, did you disable the download option? I'm lucky if I can stream this BBS let alone a song. Please allow download, or if you prefer not to, don't. It's an option, little checkmark box 'allow users to download' or something along those lines.

    Sorry guys I allowed download. Maybe I should upload it again.
    I listened to it on low fi but since I know the lyrics I could understand them. I will check it out.

    The lyrics are

    I go to work its never ever done
    I come home my wife she dont give me none
    Its time for me to go and have some fun
    Down in the Islands
    Hot fun in the sun

    Youll find me flirting with the Island girls
    youll find me shooting tidal wave curls
    Youll find me living in another world
    down in the islands
    hot fun in the sun

    Chorus
    Youll find me swimming in the mountain streams
    youll find me swinging from the jungle trees
    youll find me sailing on the deep blue seas
    down in the islands
    fat cat american

    Youll find me toking on the ghanja bud
    youll find me getting a full body rub
    youll fine me laying in the island mud
    down in the islands
    hot fun in the sun

    Youll find me doing the scuba
    youll find me acting like a foola
    youll find me spending all my moolah
    down in the Islands
    fat cat american

    Chorus

    Thank you Lana, I really dont know whats wrong, I have to go back and listen to it again. You never have to say your sorry for dissing one of my tunes, I been playing for 40 years and have been dissed often enough to be used to it by now.

    Two things dragonworks,

    I would recommend re-encoding that mp3 with a little bit better a codec. It's choppy on the hi-fi because the codec used has some rather 'huge' holes in it. The file is recognized as a 48kb/s mp3 which is fairly poor quality in itself. In the help on NoWhere is a little bit of info on how you should do this. I recommend 128kb/s.

    Once the mp3 is re-encoded from the source, make sure it has EXACTLY the same file name (it is case sensative), and upload it to NoWhere again. This will overwrite the old copy.

    Second, use the 'quil' beside the song in the 'upload/edit song' section and put a checkmark beside 'allow all download' so that low bandwidth users can download to listen in top quality.

    Any questions, just shout!

    W.

    I'm Already Biased On This Song...

    Because I heard the man hisself play it at the East Coast HomeREC Bash last week-end. And I love this tune.

    But if I MUST, I will download it & say this all over again...

    Thumbs up

    dragonworks, i think that could be a real catchy tune! But i agree that the vocals are hard to understand. However, i was lucky when i set it to play (lo-fi i couldn't download either), i just read the words along as you sang. Good job!
