GOOD NEWS. WizMystery has mastered this track! It sounds INFINITELY better now; I updated it with the new version.

DDMan465 was also kind enough to take an attempt at mastering it too, and while what you're hearing right now is WizMystery's version, DDMan's is amazing too. Check it out!


So anyway, here's a Christmassy song from me in a genre I'm totally unfamiliar with, yay :3. Thanks to Federica for the great vocals. She also wrote the melody to them and the lyrics.

I tried going on a more original route with this one, so it's got a wide variety of instruments and sounds. You'll be hearing a lot of chimes and bells and airy pads and stuff to keep it related to Christmas, but I also threw in various arps, strings, a bass, drums, and even a lead synth that comes in towards the end for a synth solo. The sleigh bells, one of the pianos and the strings are from East/West Symphonic Orchestra, the bass is from FL Studio's BooBass, and almost everything else is from the amazingly powerful and amazingly expensive Omnisphere VST :3. Oh and the drums are from the Vengeance drum pack.

I really hope you all enjoy this. I usually make orchestral so this is a massive change for me, and it's also like my third time ever working with vocals too. Took me many hours of work and therefore reviews are very, very much appreciated!

BY THE WAY... infinite thanks to SkyeWintrest for helping me with the synth solo at the end. He made it sound incredible!


Hanging up the stocking,
On the wall but there's no fire,
Waiting on your promise,
So I won't call you a liar.

There's a seat around the table,
And no more time to waste,
But you'll have to fix the cable,
Right in time for New Year's Day.

It's not a complicated thing for me to say,
This year I won't be,
Wishing my love away.

I want Y - O - U this Christmas time. x4

Don't leave me waiting,
In this frosty atmosphere,
My Christmas jumper,
Just won't warm me up this year.

I just want to hear you say,
"Baby I'm on my way"
It's just not Christmas,
If you're not here.

It's not a complicated thing for me to say,
This year I won't be,
Wishing my love away.

I want Y - O - U this Christmas time. x3
I want you. You.

I want you. You. This Christmas time.

Step responds:

I thank Y - O - U this Christmas time.

This is fantastic :D The solo gives me like a NES vibe. This brightened up my day reading this. This is a great addition to the christmas song genre!

Step responds:

Woo, another person who likes the solo!

Thanks, your feedback's really appreciated.

Nice to hear a non-lame and original Christmas song. The reason why I hate the season is because the songs suck and/or are remakes remade over and over again. It had a nice feel to it.

Step responds:

Haha you're just like a friend of mine. When he hears the generic and overdone Christmas carol remakes on the radio and stuff he gets really irritated :P. To be honest I get quite irritated too, but then again I get irritated by most stuff that's on the radio lol.

Thanks for leaving a review!

good song but it would be good if someone song the lyrics more understandable but the song is good thanks from you time and work

Step responds:

That's probably my bad; I'm not very experienced with vocals and I might've not made them clear enough haha.

Thanks for reviewing!

I wasn't sure at first but damn that's a great production! Really original and "true sounding" whatever that means. Great music, great vocals, great recording, great mix! It's fantastic!
The solo is awesome haha this song feels somewhat retro...really cool. Super submission!

Step responds:

Man it's so awesome getting such high praise from someone like you. Really glad you like it man; also relieved you like the solo too, I guess it wasn't a bad idea after all.

I appreciate the review!
