As it turns out, I had been meaning to work on a song for a Christmas mix CD, and now I have an incentive to write two of them! Good timing!

I wasn't sure I was going to enter this again. I had an idea but it just wasn't coming together. And I simply didn't have time to make it work.

Having failed I kind of let go of the competition. I knew the subject but wasn't actively thinking about it. Then this morning I awoke with an really exciting song idea in my head. My first draft is written and I'm now struggling with the bridge but it looks like I'm going to make at least Prompt #10

PROMPT #10:

Song: http://soundcloud.com/jmaq2/get-it
MP3: http://soundcloud.com/jmaq2/get-it/download

This is a rap song about Santa Claus using his Christmas Eve sleighride as a once-a-year, worldwide booty call. The sequel will be Mrs. Claus' response song, and will feature heavy guest vocals, a stronger party vibe, and extensive sampling (read: We're just going to rap over an established, yet mostly unknown, song).

Okee dokee.

Here's a response to the first prompt: http://soundcloud.com/grantimatter/t...-man-whos-very

"(There's A) Little Man (Who's Very Glad To See You In The Tree)."

It's a carol to the ithyphallic Freyr... the real, original Santa.




More on him (and what Christmas trees *really* mean) here:
http://web.archive.org/web/200808272...13.html#003113

Never forget the reason for the season!

Not sure I'll have a sequel done by the 10th, but we'll see.

Whew! The entire time I was thinking about these, I was very conscious of the fact that I needed a part I and part II, but also, that I wanted to make each song its own piece, so you wouldn't necessarily need the other. Here's "Winter Means Waiting" and "Together"...

I. Winter Means Waiting

II. Together

GUHHHHHHHH. I have fallen prey to an unreliable collaborator, and so I'm going to be completing Prompt #11 much later than I'd like to. The song is ready to be recorded in every way possible, but my texts haven't been returned all week. It's kinda ruining Christmas over here.

I made it.

Not the required date, but the song. It is made. I made it.

Jmaq: Your songs have come along so far technically in the last twelve months. It's so nice to see.

Adam: Together has some really nice moments in there. Something very, I dunno, charmingly melancholic about the tune.

Nicole: I always like to see people giving themselves secret challenges. In music, and in life


And congrats to all of us. Who have kept submitting these songs and keep the experiment alive. Merry Christmas guys.

Prompt #11

Song: https://soundcloud.com/jmaq2/get-it-pt-2
MP3: https://soundcloud.com/jmaq2/get-it-pt-2/download

I had to enlist my wife to sing a cobbled together version of what my followup holiday song should have been. She hates the way she sings, and so found the process excruciating and I took what I could get. It does what it was supposed to do, I suppose. It just feels awkward and unfinished and it always will.

On the bright side, I can finally put together this mix CD and ship it off to poison the mailboxes of some otherwise happy people. Happy Merry Christmas etc., guys!

I'm secretly hoping that there's a secret two-day prompt coming tomorrow for an epic song that's shorter than 20 seconds. Round out the year with a burst of sudden, unstoppable creativity.

Of course this could just be because I have the next two days off and have all of my holiday business wrapped up. It might not be as great for everyone else.

If you REALLY want a challenge:

Make me a 20 second TV show intro for a fictional show called "Hawkguy" set in 1973.

AAAAAAAAAAND go.

"Grey Christmas" is awesome, and I wish I heard it in time for Christmas Christmas. But I am still pointing other people toward it on this, the sixth day of Christmas.

Ho. Ho. Ho.
