What did you do to Lexington!?

Seriously did anybody download this song? I had some sort of nerdgasm when I saw it on the RBN and downloaded it instantly.

First of all, the guitar chart isn't too bad, but not too great. (I don't play drums so I have no idea, sorry). The singing is underteired. But those aren't the problems.

Why, why why why why would you release this song before RBN2? It would be like the BEST song for keys ever, and I can play it on piano, (the way I play it would actually work out with the 2 octave system too) not to mention that it also has harmonies.

Also, here's a big problem:

Just look at the singer. Ugh. 45 seconds is a great example.
Seriously what were you thinking?

Here's a piano cover for anyone else who thinks they made a terrible mistake releasing this song early: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sf0RaU_zo7w&feature=related

    First of all, it's generally not up to the authoring group as to whether or not a song will be held off until RBN2, that decision will likely be made by the band/band's management or by the label that's licensing the song.

    With the video, I'm guessing you're referring to poor lip-syncing? If so, this is something that is completely out of the hands of the authors. There are no lip-syncing tools to help and the game simply generates them automatically based on the dry vocal track.

    Also, this song has been in the pipeline for months and months and months. The licensing was probably all done way before anybody knew anything about RBN 2.0

    it is an absolute must that they re-release it. Although, how would they fit the chart onto the 25 keys of the keyboard when the verses use many more?

    The verse uses four octaves, lol.

    I guess it could be shortened to playing the D appergios twice each.
