For MAC12 Christmas Audio Contest (I got 2nd place) Also submitted this for the December NAC just because (I got 5th place)

Me singing about the holidays in a crazy and grumpy way I guess. Yep...


Christmas time's come 'round again
Fa la la la la la la la
What are we supposed to send
Fa la la la la la
Still not cold enough to be snow
Fa la la la la la la la
2012 will let us know
Fa la la la la la

Jesus Jesus could you spare a dime
My friends gave me stuff and I'm out of time
A budget didn't work I don't got a single cent
And still no one bothered to get me a present

68 degrees perfect for a snowball fight
Play outside kids 'cuz there's plenty sunlight
Everyone can shop on a lovely winter day
The gift of giving is in what you pay

Christmas time's abound the air
Fa la la la la la la la
Got no tree so I don't care
Fa la la la la la
Too many gifts and no decor
Fa la la la la la la la
Cookies are burnt milk on the floor
Fa la la la la la

Santa Santa give me everything
I want to hear all those sleigh bells ring
Kill all my friends if that's what it takes
All I want this year are Christmas cakes

Giddy up giddy up travel for the holidays
Even though I don't wanna see them anyways
People drivin' just need to get out of my way
The gift of giving is in what you pay


I didn't notice any lines that were too long because the performance was spot on. I loved this.

This has Zipper all over it, wherever you go you surely leave a mark.
You feature really impressive choice of instruments giving a chilly winter feeling, and the way you composed the song fits perfectly with the vocals.
The vocals are really good, the mixing is perfect and your pitch and tone and spot on, the lyrics however although well written some times are too long for the song itself, thats very noticeable in "there's plenty sunlight" and " perfect for a snowball fight". The creepy approach is also a bold move but kind of expected from you :D.
Good work Zipper!

ZipZipper responds:

Okay I can agree with that! I'm definitely afraid of making a bold move by staying true to who I am for something so genre specific. Ehh...a big thing I got out of reading the outline for the contest was "Christmas carol", so I just had to use my horrendous voice somehow...I'm thinking perhaps it was too much. Oh well. It's not the end of the world...*gulp* Thanks for reviewing Mr. Sexy <3
