I LOVE it!!!

Really love the message of the lyrics too. And I love how you broke down the parts instead of just throwing it all out there like I did…lol

I’ve been working with these same samples so it’s fun to hear what you’ve done with them here. I like it. I also very much like the ending with your vocals in ChuckBerglund’s music, that’s a nice match, not that the rest of it isn’t but that’s when my sensors involuntarily went ‘oooh, that’s nice’.

the Jeris samples are amazing eh? i mainly just cut a lot of them out, only included instruments in select places to highlight them in more of a solo fashion. some basic editing too, but mainly Jeris provided some pretty amazing stuff so it didn’t take a lot of treatment to sound great. sooo glad you like the ChuckBerglund ending. I tried starting with it and wrestled with it unsuccessfully for a while. the ending seemed to flow much more. i had a little difficulty with the transition but i felt his sample had to be in there! thanks so much for your review. :)

Thanks Jeris. I put a new mix up today. I wonder if it sounds better? :)

Love, love, love this! From beginning to end! Of course, you know I agree full-heartedly with the message… but what a joyful (and clear) way to spread it! Woooo! Between this and Jeris’ mushroom number, I’m way more merry today than this Grinch can handle… :)

you are adorable! the Grinch is soon to be holding hands in Whoville ;) glad you like it! it started a little more negative, about giving away your greed and silly need, but somehow it turned into something much more positive, with a similar message. thanks for your nice review - i’m merry too :)

Great track, wonderful sentiment. The “mall” came to the uk first in the early 80’s. I watched the one in my home city being built as a youth. It looked at first like it was going to be a cathedral. It wasn’t till it was finished that I realised it had nothing to do with the divine.

Interesting, to confuse a mall and a church. Sometimes, depending on the church, I don’t find much of a difference between either and their selling. That being said, I’ve experienced some pretty divine moments in churches (although my favorite church is nature!), but I’ve never had a divine experience in a mall — only temporary injections of purchasing adrenal rush that wear off quickly. Thanks for your review!

Great—definitely The Message!

Glad it speaks to you! Thanks for the kind review :)

What a great feel in here — from the groove of the music to the lyric and your performance. Warms up my heart’s cockles for sure. Bravo my dear, bravo!

Ah thanks Susan! I’d eat some of those cookies from Mrs. Joseph’s kitchen ;)
