I'll make my entrance now.

#1 Post by Mr. Chuckles » Mon Sep 22, 2008 12:46 pm

Okay, here's the thing: I don't know if I'm the only one who's been frantically searching the internets since the announcement of "Good Day" in the Sims 2 Apartment Life, but I've got a hypothetical situation. If I were, hypothetically of course, to come across a link to a site where one could, theoretically, download the Simlish version of "Good Day," as well as whatever else from the soundtrack one wished, what would be the moral implications?
Does anyone know, in this purely hypothetical situation, if Tally Hall would want us to all experience this song, or if they're possibly waiting to release the song in its own time or something?

Also, great to see all of you again since the collapse of the official forums.

I, too, struggle with such predicaments now and then.

I don't mind risking the cease & desist letter from Atlantic or the band, but I do mind risking any trust the band members themselves have in me.

Also, especially after my old friend Skwerl has been getting the national spotlight, FBI arrest, and whatever fines he's being subjected to for leaking the Guns & Roses album, it's obvious that without proper authority/approval, such things shouldn't be publicly released or encouraged to be traded.

Then is this a no?
I should point out that it's not really the "illegal" type of music downloading. It's quite literally a site with all the tracks displayed on a page where you can click and listen.

Oh, well, if it's someone else who can be blamed - by all means, post the URL!
My own rule, so far, basically states that if any other person can come across a particular thing, then it's fine. Only when it's info/material that is impossible for anyone else to know about do I keep it to myself until given permission (or until that info/material is made public).

But there's also the stuff that falls into the "Was released a loooong time ago, but we don't know how the band would feel about us redistributing it" category

Indeed, although the beginning of the song is the best part. xD
Oh God! I love the effort that's put into these songs for the Sims. They actually recorded all of the background lines at the end in Simlish! xD

There is nothing not great about this.

The ending is just nonsensical nonsense. FANTASMIC.

I'm fairly certain you just speak jibberish but do your best to make it sound like it's an actual language.

And I, for one, am so happy to now know how to say "I stepped on gum!" in Simlish!

Simlish is just gibberish, but VERY, VERY good gibberish. They're very consistent with words throughout the song.
A few random words:
"Thunk" is said a few times in the song, at first to mean "thing," then later as "thought."
"Lemma-sking!" is the famous "Let us sing!" It almost rhymes with "limousine."
"Muh" sounds like it's "and."

For the most part, it sounds as if Simlish is formed from taking whatever it is you're saying and embellishing the second half of each word.
When the Sims, or creatures, if anyone else here plays Spore, speak Simlish in the games, it sounds a lot less formulaic, and a lot more based on tone.

I don't know if anyone else bothered with any of the rest of the songs from the soundtrack, but I'm loving the Katy Perry song. xD

The vowel sounds are all pretty much the same.

Indeed. I for one think Tally Hall should re-record the entire album like this.
I'd be very interested to hear what "Ruler" would sound like - especially the "flibbity jibbity jibber jabber" part.
Would that part stay the same? I mean, "flibbity jibbity jibber jabber" isn't technically English to begin with.

I think "flibbity jibbity jibber jabber" in Simlish would end up being something in plain english
