Finally -- a MeFiMusic Challenge I can do! Or rather have done. I actually posted this song before, but I've since gone back and cleaned up the EQ and gated some of the noise from the vocal. The two chords used are D and E.
Am7 + Gm7. My submission to the two chord challenge.
My contribution to the two-chord challenge. A sleepy little song with fingerpickin' guitar, piano, and some three part "harmony." I experiment a little more with my voice on this one. [more inside]
Ok, so I was playing around with the two-chord song idea, struck on something that sounded nice, and this is the end result. Brought to you by the letters G and D7. [more inside]

For the music challenge amnesty. I'm often a bit intimated by the challenges but one thing I can definately do is play an instrument the wrong way. [more inside]

WARNING: High pitched feedback. Sorry about your ears to everyone streaming the RSS. [more inside]
I'm not sure if this would work better in a spy movie or a cheesy 70's porno.

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]
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.
Ya. Kind of a Norman Bates take on it.
Eve from Wall-E sings the Christmas standard.

Where I live is not the best or the worst place. Ypsilanti Mi Here we seem to have a abundance of Crack heads. But for some strange reason they all disappear when it gets cold out. This is their Christmas Carol. They Dont Know that you can still buy crack when its cold?
A track from my old band's 2002 Christmas EP. If you have any respect at all for me, or are offended by blasphemy or infant rape, you probably shouldn't listen to this. [more inside]
It's not really that satanic. And you can still dance to it Peanuts-style. [more inside]
It's okay to submit a MetaFilter Music Challenge song at the last minute (Pacific Standard Time) if the song itself is less than a minute long! You can't get blood from a stone, but you can get feedback from an autoharp. Here's a tender punk rock love song for you. [more inside]
My first MeFi Music song. Under just one minute long. [more inside]
As requested by chococat, and featuring the great Karlos The Jackal on marimba and toy piano. [more inside]
