cool groove Bill
got my knee boppin' like it hasn't for a while - now I'm working the shoulders a little with some head bobs thrown in. Good thing I'm sitting down - I could get hurt. Funky vocal effects. Love it.

I agree, this rolls along with a driving force that makes you want to jump out of your chair and dance or just Jog Im not sure but at 2:14 it really turns itself inside out great Transitions, spooky singing onto of very uplifting soloing on the piano makes for a very distinct atmosphere!

Infectious rhythm, Bill
Time for a change I'd say, and going to 17 bit would do it for me. Great rhythm track and some cool vocals too.

Very cool one Bill,

Trance time
Hypnotic. Repetition really works on this.

I like how you layered the piece and kept it moving.

Wow
I got here from your forum post. I love how over my head it was. I, like Bud, admire your obsession. But I also admire the fact that you know what you're talking about. That's very cool. I also admire this piece. Style mixing, a powerful but subtle build, Satan. Great job and amazing forethought!

roll over the Beat Oven
If only all the digits (both of them) were so smooth and funky. I can never decide which is better, 1 or 0.

What a great piece of music, and a fun bit of inspiration... and I am VERY happy to see that adding your song at this particularly auspicious slot didn't break the Macjams camel's back. Good to see you "on the other side" of 16 bits.

ttfn,
Drakonis

i ended up going for an emotional appeal i suppose. this is a very esoteric milestone for MacJams - but meaningful for me anyway!

Amazed
that you succeeded in nabbing the 65536 song number for this one — for that alone you deserve a special MacJammer award! — but it's also a very catchy, upbeat dance tune that's a lot of fun to listen to!

Did you think about using that number sequence in the music in some way? Or perhaps you did? That was my first thought when looking at it, anyway.

I am amazed
that you thought about this AND pulled it off being the right song number. Obsessive? No, just highly creative... and the song is great - cool groove. vocals excellent

OK,
So the song is a neat bit of electronica, but how did you manage to monitor and get the song in at exactly 65536?!? There's stuff in this universe I just can't figure out. You, Bill, are one of those phenomena.
Cool beans!

No S216 problem?
Someone once claimed that the definition of genius is to do something blindingly obvious, that no one has done before.

Since you notice this sort of obvious fact as the rollover of the 16 bit address space, or rather, its non-happening, while it escapes everyone else, you're a pretty smart guy.

Oh, cool track too.

It's Time To Roll
Energetic groove, mellow chord prog. We're bopping along in a good mood. Since we've gotten beyond 65536 I guess Simon/Miguel used the correct datatype on the song_counter column.

great groove Bill, love the bass and this locks in nicely with the drum beat as the keys fade in.
Nice vocal effects too, very much enjoyed.
