This is really neat! It sounds like a murder ballad. Saddest chipmunks ever!

My wife says: "This is really awesome! It sounds like something they should play in [Disneyland's] Haunted Mansion -- in the anteroom, over the holidays."

Is it just you playing on this, or what?

(Also! If you add the "mefimusicchallenge" tag, the song will show up on the playlist over on this page.)

(Also! Post more songs!)

Thanks to all!

Karlos yeah it's just me. I recently discovered the Xpand! plug-in for Pro Tools and wanted to play with it the other day, and this was the result. An outstanding package considering it's free.

This is so fantastic. The arrangement is spot-on.

Straight out of the Tim Burton version of the Chipmunk Movie. Or maybe The Nightmare Before Christmas. Very nice!

Having listened to this a bunch now, "Still want that hula hoop!" is still cracking me up. Just brilliant.

Still my favorite Xmas song, 15 years later.
