FRONTPAGED, PEOPLES!!! Truly an honour the Singalong Crew deserves. You all put your heart and soul into these, and it shows!
For anyone who missed this one, and wants a chance to participate on the next, we have one just started RIGHT HERE!!! Come join us for a sea-shanty!
BOOOYAH!!!! WE DID IT!!!
Ceevro here! This whole singalong thing has been one of the things in my life that I'm most proud of, not only because the music is great, but because it brings such a wonderful group of talented people to create a little spot of joy in the world. This song was chosen for a few reasons...first, just a great song. Second, I happened to have learned how to play it, but my own vocals just were not up to the task of going it alone. Third...it's a message we all need to hear every now and then.
I'd like to specifically thank our pianist, Katyawhoistotallynotarussianspyatall, for physically driving down to my house, getting wired up to my digital piano, and rocking the crap out of her performance, even though she has never even heard of Newgrounds. I am also eternally grateful to @MetalRenard, for his talent and effort in mixing and mastering the whole thing! And for all of you who jumped on board, you rock! Literally! Singalongs don't exist without people...well...singing along!
A last note: I am hoping to keep these going, as long as I am able! But that all depends on YOU! As long as there is interest and effort from my co-collaborators, I am more than delighted to keep making them happen!

MetalRenard here, hi!
Always a pleasure to work on these with Ceevro, I don't know how he does it but he always manages to get so many talented people involved and I could never pull it off myself.
Since I was responsible for mixing, here are some...
753 total vocal edits (timing)
2 virtual instruments only (drums and a quiet piano to play the low octave in the chorus)
77 plugin instances used (30 of them are Alloy 2 and Nectar 2 which have EQ, distortion, compression etc all included)
This was a blast to do, thank you all for your voices and instruments, you're brilliant.
