Well That's Christmas


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
I've always wanted to write a Christmas Song - so here it is. I realise it's a bit early but I had to post it.
Maybe I'll post it again at Christmas time.

For my American friends for 'Sweets' read 'Candy' and for 'Buscuits' read 'Cookies'.

Hope you enjoy.

Thanks to The Freesound Project for the 'Brahms Lullaby' and 'scratch' samples.

Lyrics
Wonderful Life on the TV
And a Baby on my Knee
Well That's Christmas
That's Christmas

Turkey the Breast
I'm Gonna Leave all the Rest
Well That's Christmas
That's Christmas

Rain and Snow
Sleet and Slush
That's Christmas
That's Christmas

Pubs Closed and Cinemas too
Not a Lot Really to Do
Well That's Christmas
That's Christmas

Lots of Sweets and Biscuits Galore
Asleep in the Chair, Fart and Snore
Well That's Christmas
That's Christmas

All in All Said and Done
It Ain't That Much Fun
Well That's Christmas
That's Christmas


Sentimental Hogwash

When It's Time To Start Stringing Lights On Palm Trees
...I'll sing this to the wife and kids. Might add a few lines of my own about the heat and mosquitoes, but they'll get a kick out of it when daddy says "fart".

That's Christmas.

Thanks Len.

I hate
mosquitos - been toying with the idea of doing a song about them. That's a great idea Bob, if everyone substituted their own words for how Christmas is for them. Merry Christmas.

Fart And Snore
...that's Christmas! Love this tune, Len... Christmas tunes always sound better off-season anyway - you're not being crushed to the wall 24-7 with them everywhere. (Try listening to Rudolph The Red-Nosed Raindeer in August... it's a whole new tune!)

This is a lot of fun. Thanks for getting pre-seasonal on us!

FUNKY X
Len,
Very cool funky X-Mas groove. Not at all what I was expecting afetr the toy piano intro. Gut wrenching sub bass, trippy phased lead axe, and syncopated drums, all very cool.
Must say, you did beat the rush....

Funny track Len
Too true in most cases. I like the guitar washes and mad effects in the track it really adds a nice touch. This is probably one of the best Christmas tunes I have ever heard esp since it is closer to real life then most. Well done Len.

I love your voice.
said 4081 days ago (October 9th, 2007)
hmmmm
Rather short comment. I just love your voice, it reminds me of the cherished tho depressing eighties (Cave, Joy Division, Swans). And the cynicism in the song is nice:-). I liked the drums, tho a bit busy at times AND i friggin digged the guitar....MAN! Lushes subtle tweaks in the chords, I digged the guitar and the voice. So....Ha! Short n elaborate

love,

Jb

Festering festivities
Gee, Len. How can we help? You seem to be a bit negative about the season about to happen at retail centers everywhere. On Christmas Day, take a walk on the spirit side and lift your eyes to the Star of Bethlehem.

Funny song but very serious. Christmas has always been a problem.

Thanks for visiting Richard.
Haven't seen any stars in London for quite a few years too much light pollution and if I go walking about here looking up to the sky I'd be run over.
Merry Christmas.

Peter Bauckham said 4081 days ago (October 9th, 2007)
I too...
hate mosquitos! But enjoyed this 'festive' tune. It is a little bit early to be thinking about Christmas! We normally do a Christmas song but haven't got round to writing it yet - better get my finger out although my Wife wants to do something traditional this year... not sure about that! Great rhythm.

it's a wonderful song
i liked this as soon as i saw the dalmation in the hat.
:)
what a marvelous segue from the delicate start to the hard hitting section. i like how quickly you sang "that's christmas." this made me smile repeatedly, but it's also a kinkily good piece of sound, too. " asleep in the chair ETC.," ah, you've captured it well. quite an interesting vocal delivery with just the right sense of drama. clever ending. bravo, len!

Thank you Anne for such a positive comment.
The dalmatian is my dog Breeze. I love Bob's idea above that people could sing their own ideas of Christmas to it. It would sound very striking with your silky voice on it for instance. Thanks again.
Merry Christmas

...Seamless move from intro to the body of the tune. Moves real nice from place to place from there...

"Pubs Closed and Cinemas too
Not a Lot Really to Do
Well That's Christmas
That's Christmas"

..shame...

Hmmm...you should come to New York City some Christmas. I've got some really fine pubs we could visit 24/7, holidays included...

A Great concept
and I just love that bass...that lyric and that voice...and a superb beat that guides you...personally I am not so fond of the 'sharp' guitar sound in the beginning...I think it is too loud in the mix....but that is nitpicking...you created an adorable tune! I love how you sing 'that's Christmas"...

xmas
lovely tingly intro. very clever. then the bass kicks in. haven't heard the vocal yet..but the lyrics to verse one are fantastic. ok, you're singing now. i love the delivery...it's like you can't give a damn....which is what the song is about - it's a very brave approach because vocally it could backfire..but it doesn't - it works...and the conversational style is perfectly underpinned by the beat going on below. great outro...love the scratched record and tingles again. it all makes sense now, seeing how good you are at drawing and painting...your music is very artistic and individual. i wish i could produce stuff like this.
