Here's another go at re-imagining SmokeyVW's festive holiday number A Bell in the Valley. This time I took liberty with the GB file. Just a warning.

Happy Holidays!

Tim
Burton should use this in a Nightmare Before Christmas 2. I see Rudolph made out of tin clattering on the roof with his joints clanking and sticking and desperately in need of some oil.
Wonderful.

Every time I listen to it - I wanna tinker with it - but that's why we post and move on. As for Smokey - he knows a thing or two about weird.

multicoloured swap shop.It sounds like a great big brightly coloured jumbo truck being driven over a candy rock mountain by clockwork gnomes on their way to santas electric dream factory.

Great tune - reminds me of the legend of the golden arches,F.Zappa

Like an Industrial Christmas film... the sound track to one of those documentaries about sweat shops, where thousands of elves are working behind the scenes...

Here's a group hg to everyone who
stopped by recently. I can't keep up with the comments between wrapping presents, cooking, and partying. Thanks for taking the time to check this out and comment. Have a very Merry Christmas and a blast in the New Year!

kingbee said 3439 days ago (December 23rd, 2007)
arty but nice
If I don't know the root of this composition I would have thought it was the Art of Noise. It's got a 'Fairlight' feel to it. Very different to Smokeys version..but I guess that was the idea. Like it

Christmas On Keezar
...this is a hoot! I'm seeing androids making merry, toasting each other and what all. Of course, the tree is an android too, as well as most of the presents, and probably all of the decorations too.

It'd be cool to rescore 'Blade Runner' with this. And drink lots of egg nog. Merry Christmas!

Very cool
A mad mix for festive season. Very good composition and enjoyed very much. I usually cannot stand Christmas songs but this is a really good bit of fun. Nice one Bud
