Idea: 8 - - Original, funny
Lyrics: 7 - - Good lyrics, but I was completely befuddled by "I won’t defecate your steers". The HP reference went by me as well.
Singing: 6 - - Pretty much in time with the music and decent vocal inflection. Being quite a bit lower in range than Boy George isn't naturally correctable - singing this entire song in falsetto would be extremely hard on the vocal chords, so you did what you could. Most notes seemed to be carried too long. Major improvement over your first two recordings though.
Backing Track: 8 - - Not sure if this should be higher - it sounded pretty close to the original.
Video: n/a
Sound Effects: n/a
Editing/Production: 8 - Nothing distracting or out of place there
Overall: 6.5 - Fairly solid, but not one of your better ones lyrics wise. You are improving rapidly though, and that's what counts.

I think pacing wise, far improved over the rest of your work prior to this. I do have to question sometimes which songs you choose to record first, this lyrically was ok--I don't find it terribly funny though, still it's good to see you improving.

POTQ- I have to agree that your recording skills are getting better, and that your voice was too much in a lower range for this song. Nonetheless, very well done and funny, Matty.

Sorry, I couldn't listen through to the end: too flat, too often and it set my teeth on edge.

Definitely improving. A couple places where still a bit pitchy, but the pacing definitely matched the background music much better than some of your older recordings.
