Holiday Songs

Post by ken » Mon Nov 28, 2005 9:40 am

Not really a fight, but if you want to record a holiday song and PM me a link to it, I will list them here.

I would certainly appreciate any Hannukah songs as I make a compilation CD for my family each year.

Get to work!

Be well,
Ken

So the other day my friend was playing "Santa Baby" on the piano, so I sung along. This isn't that version. It's a g&g version. But it's still a pretty good song.

Then there's a Fountain's of Wayne cover of "Alien For Christmas" which is a pretty fun song.

Santa Baby
Alien For Christmas

(Btw, for Christmas I would like a kitty, if anyone would like to buy me one. 8))

This says three things about me:

1) I have samples for some pretty odd instruments (Glass harmonica!).

2) I really wish I actually owned a guitar.

3) My preamp's broken, so no vocals for me :(

The ice weasels (yes we're still around) did a holiday song last year called "Frosty's Drunk Again". It's here:

This is my <a href=http://raisedbywolvesmusic.com/songs/We_3_Kings.mp3>We Three Kings</a> from awhile back.

Oh, and here's an instrumental <a href=http://www.aaronondek.com/cover/CF04/rx ... IsThis.mp3> What Child Is This</a> from an early Christmas Cover Fight.

Merry Christmas and all of that.

Hee, very nice job, Johnny.

When I was a little thing we had a CD of 80s-y Christmas songs(it had a hilarious cover, I remember) that got a loooot of play during Christmas time, and this was one of the songs on it. Sentimental song and whatnot. Yeah.

Holy awesome these are good. I love carols and holiday music.

I try to record one every year to give to family and friends. This year's, Sleigh Ride. Huge thanks to Tonetripper for laying down his awesome bass playing. Last year I tried Carol of the Bells.

Thanks for sharing everyone. A gread Christmas Day road trip CD is gettin' burned from all ya'll. Happy Holidays!

Ok Ken, I'm in.

I didn't write the words (they're public domain though). Here is my folky treatment of "A Visit From Saint Nicholas." the recording was done straight to cassette mono through a single dynamic mic. I hope you like it - Hannukah Harry did :-)
