Who's Gonna Keep it Together?

Christmas in Tokyo

Three days into December; it has got to be time for some Christmas songs! Four years ago I wrote this song, with lyrics in Swedish, to communicate my Christmas melancholy to my family. Two years later I was still sad, but now in English, and on camera... [more inside]

O Holy Night

From Olga

Arnaud wasn't just about the techno noise. He was an enormous fan of Laurie Andersen's Oh, Superman and had assembled a vocoder himself by taking apart the family's old tube TV. His mother Olga, who was not an educated woman, could not write without speaking aloud, and so one day when he heard her writing a letter, he snuck a microphone under the rickety table, fed it to his home-made recorder, and began to play along...

douce nuit

Short, with improvised and awkwards chunks, various mistakes, and a outro that flirts with crashlanding. Peace.

Christmas Wrapping

Cover of The Waitresses classic recorded for Christmas 2006 and featuring my daughters Jennifer and Stephanie on vocals. Their English accents make it sound like a Bananarama outtake. I will shortly be uploading something that will almost certainly qualify for the "Naughty" podcast even if it doesn't make the cut.....

The Day of the Christmas Parade

Hollywood is famous for its annual Christmas Parade, which inspired the song "Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)", which Gene Autrey wrote after playing Santa in the parade and hearing children call out to him. I decided to write my own song about the event, as experienced by slightly older children -- the homeless teens who used to (and probably still do) squat in abandoned buildings and under bridges in Hollywood. Ah, memories. [more inside]

Let It Snow

This is as close to the original melody as I could get while in a minor key. Imagine being on a holiday getaway where everything goes terribly because of the weather.
