Yes, that’s right… a Christmas Song!!!
You know, I’m just feeling so stoked and joyful about everything right now that this just came right out. I’ve always wanted to do a Christmas record, so, I apologize to any of you humbuggers out there but I believe I’m going to try and chew my way through that little project for the next couple of months right here on mchatton.com. There may be some exceptions but right now it just sounds like the thing to do.
And, for those of you keeping score… I came in second again over at Song Fight with the last two entries – Shoelace Soup and A Scary Thing. I actually put up another one yesterday to do battle with this week called Stomach For It. It’s so different from the other stuff here that I wasn’t going to post it here originally (kind of a wanky over the top guitar solo at the end) but here it is anyway. Please go vote for it if you like it – there’s a lot of great submissions over there this week.
The Christmas song has the traditional peanuts charm in the piano and WOW I am really into the Stomach song! Loved it from start to finish!
Amazing as usual — love the jazzy Christmas tune (awesome atmosphere/rhythm/instrumentation) and I can’t get ‘Stomach For It’ out of my head (sorry, but Chris Martin would love to get his hands on that song, even with the Crimson Steele guitar outro). Tough competition over at SongFight this week — good luck!
Wow, i love “stomach for it” But then again, i am a sucker for some SHREDDING! I haven’t heard you play guitar like that in a looooong time! Super cool Todd, I’ll be voting….
