Re: Unofficial Xmas Project

I was initially thinking more like cover versions really, but whatever, so long as you can tell it's a christmas track without being told go as dark as you like.

I'm going for dark and sinister. Still in the Halloween mood...

Re: Unofficial Xmas Project

I'm no singer but I do have a mic, so why not?

Maybe more of a spoken half sung type affair.

Unless I chicken out, that's my plan.

Re: Unofficial Xmas Project

[EDIT} Changed my mind and scraped the Silent night track in favor of "Chestnuts Roasting"..as before it's just going to be a different take / arrangement of it.

Re: Unofficial Xmas Project

Btw guys, if you don't want to sully your esteemed names then feel free to also choose a suitably ridiculous one-off christmas pseudonym.

Here's some inspiration for the kind of vibe I have in mind for this.

Re: Unofficial Xmas Project: 'Secret Santa'

So, are we calling what we are doing to avoid duplicates or should it remain a mystery and the chips fall where they may?

Re: Unofficial Xmas Project: 'Secret Santa'

I'm not to familiar with Xmas songs being a heathen and all but I can give it a whirl if I can find some stuff I like melodically. Might actually try to find some midi instead of audio or both.

I know..too much free time on my hands.

It's a cover of Nat King Cole's tune "The Christmas Song" (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)..done as Jack Torrance might hear it played at the Overlook Hotel this Christmas.

The old ones are yeah. With some of those songs, the composers aren't even known.
