Lyrics
Tonight its Christmas Eve,
Children are in their beds,
So sleep and believe,
Rest those weary heads.

Pull my cracker this Christmas,
And make my dreams come true,
Put me on your wishlist,
A gift from me to you.

Whos that flying through the sky?
A red nose guides the way,
Snow topped houses passing by,
Santa and his sleigh.

Pull my cracker this Christmas,
And make my dreams come true,
Put me on your wishlist,
A gift from me to you.

Standing on your rooftop,
In his big red suit,
He’s climbing down your chimney,
With his shiny black boots.

Pull my cracker this Christmas,
And make my dreams come true,
Put me on your wishlist,
A gift from me to you.

The morning when you wake up,
Tell me what you see,
As you creep down the stairs,
Look under your Christmas tree.

Pull my cracker this Christmas,
And make my dreams come true,
Put me on your wishlist,
A gift from me to you.

Merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas.

And Even Better
No Joke. Sweet Song.

I think that everything that's here is well (Very Well) handled. Now,

On My Wish list:

Separate and Open the Presence (as it were) of the Vocals (around 3K
Hz) to bring them more forward. Make sure each is Double tracked.

Very Cool Piano, but Lonely. Some Christmas "Cracker" surprise
Support or Counter point would Sweeten the MX (cello, horns, guitar)
and add Color. Still keeping the Vocals front, of course.

Drum TX seems a bit Static, which undercuts the progress of the
Narrative development. Some change-ups?

Choose a chord sequence for the piano to play as an outro to pull it all
together (even if you fade vocals under it). It could be a sustain or a
fade ending, depending on how you feel.

Beginnings of a Classic.

And, Oh. A Merry Christmas, as well.

Best regards,
Cooper

And Even Better
I'm glad you liked it and thanks for the tips. I am still very new to garageband so could you explain how exactly I can change the vocals to 3 Khz please, as well as your other ideas?

Thanks.

Festive and fun
A very festive Christmas song. I liked listening to it.

Needs a bit more balance between the instruments and the voices. The
song seems a bit flat in some spots. I find that adding a little (very little)
echo helps.

Overall, good song. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks, I tried playing with the echo and it did sound better before I messed with it, but the more I messed the worse it got. I guess I should have saved the original before hand. At least now I have something to play with. Again thanks.

I didn't mean to destroy your song...

I should have pointed out the dangers of actually taking my advice :-)
