This started with that discussion re midi only BIAB and merged with the Christmas song "challenge". I sat down on the 5th or 6th December and somehow I ended up with 440BIG1.sty from the folk song package from BIAB some years ago. Mixed with a couple of my own styles helpfully called strum3 and funky. The drums were a mix from Fruity Loops FPC (midi loop thingie). All instruments a mix of the ones in Fruity and the freebies in Proteus, kontakt and kore, Independence, etc. and me strumming. Mastered using the Classic freebies
Throw away the key (Christmas is coming)

Absolutely, positively perfect!

I loved it! Great lyrics and vox. Loved that chorus!

Thanks Mario,
just a song about being alone with the one you love at Christmas and having a beer or six

Now that is one charming kooky song that really deserves a listen. For those who like to follow along with lyrics, you will find them at the bottom of the page.

Jim,
Thanks, that is a really nice comment.
I've been called quirky, amongst other unprintable things, but I much prefer kooky.

In fact it is perfect!

Certainly no weirder or kookier than some songs that have been huge hits over the Christmas period. Strange, but I really enjoyed it Alyn.
