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.....

O Holy Night

This is one of my favorite bits of not just holiday music but music in general, but it's not something I usually hear people rock out to. This is my attempt to help change that. [more inside]

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.

Messy Bells

Carol of the Bells, on violin (plucked), recorder, sieve&fork, and a can of kitty snacks (with the cat on unsolicited vocals on that track). I did this late last night in a hurry as a last minute Christmas greeting for friends, so it's a bit messy here and there.

Huron Carol

Another Christmas nugget from the Sovereign Brass. Just as in Sweet Chiming Bells and Deck the Halls, I played the tuba and arranged the music.

Sweet Chiming Bells

Another Christmas nugget (see also this post) from Sovereign Brass. Like the other tune, I arranged the music and played tuba.

Deck The Halls

A great arrangement of a classic tune by the Sovereign Brass, an all-brass quintet, which was an impromptu thing between my friends and I to spread some Christmas cheer and create a few new arrangements of some old chestnuts.

(A Glass of) Christmas Cheer

A Christmas drinking song by Sailor Martin, a pierced and tattooed sailor puppet, who apparently believes that Yule is a celebration of liquor and vice. The original recording is Cecil Macklin "Too Much Mustard," recorded by Charles Prince's Band in February of 1913. Lyrics and Sailor Martin's singing voice by yours truly. The singing was recorded on a Kodak z730 digital camera set to record digital video. The soundtrack was then removed and converted to an AIFF using Quicktime Pro, and then added to the original instrumental tracks using Garage Band.

Xmas Won't Be Xmas

It's getting to be time to put together the Christmas mix tapes! This was recorded by a band I was in in 1991. Our new guitar player, Michael Cox, brought us the song so he sings lead. I'm one of the girl background singers (heard best toward the end) and might be playing a tiny bit of guitar (I don't remember for sure), and I know I played some jingle bells near the end of the track (What Christmas song doesn't have bells?). It's a goofy singalong sort of holiday tune. I like it a lot. I wish I had a better quality copy, though. We recorded this song along with another batch of demos, in time to get airplay on KNDD's local music Christmas show that year... then promptly broke up before even completing all the tracks as a band, though I went in to the studio later to finish. C'est la vie.

Ringle Bock Jell

A remix of PinkStainlessTail's classic holiday anthem Jingle Bell Rock. I had such high hopes for this when I started, intending it to be even more annoying than original, but I kind of lost the will to live partway through doing it. Consider it then to be permanently incomplete.
