Christmastime


©2016 Robert Randall Burke


Everybody's happy now
It's Christmas
Laughing children
Running through the snow
The whole town's decorated
And there's magic in the air
Whispering.....
“Christmastime is near”


Everybody's coming home for Christmas
Hanging precious memories on the tree
We'll sing all the old songs
Just for Auld Lang Syne
And share the love
We feel at Christmastime.


With the family gathered round
We'll listen for the sound
Of sleigh bells
Ringing in this Christmastime.



Regards,

Bob

Bob,

You have now written TWO of the best NEW Christmas songs I have heard in two decades.

This (and the other - "Songs Of Angels") should get recorded - and become annual classics. And make you much money for all your years to come.

Nice production. Excellent vocal - (really sells it!).

Merry Christmas.

Same to you. smile

Very good Christmas tune.
Well delivered vocally, good easy listening chord changes with a genuine Christmas Holiday season vocal melody.

Personally, and this is NOT a criticism, I was expecting to hear an orchestral arranged middle eight. (sweet, but not shrill string section?)
Not a terribly busy section but just revisiting the sweet sounding vocal verse melody.
I don't think it would make the song overdone or too long.

This is very good tune Bob and stands quite well on it's own....I like it very much.

Carry on....

Thanks for the listen and kind remarks. This was written for a publisher who rejected "Songs". He didn't pick this one up either! grin

Wayne,

I know this could've used an orchestral middle eight, but this was just a demo, so I kept it sparse. Thanks for listening and the nice comments. Merry Christmas, and Semper Fi!

Bob,

The same to you! I really enjoyed the song as a whole but especially the vocals.
I loved the warmth and yet slightly melancholy feel to it.

All the best,
Jez

Got it....

Did I mention that my comment wasn't a criticism? smile
Should you update the tune do call it to our attention.

Sorry it got 'rejected'....I'm sure I'd experience a lot of it if I submitted my drivel to a publisher. smile

Thanks for responding.

A good weekend to all....

Bob,

Your vocal really shines on this and the simple message and uplifting melody are just right. I suppose a string arrangement might add something, but the backing & your use of the synth & loops works very well as is.
A thumbs down for the grinch who didn`t see the mistletoe hanging over your fine song!

Robert

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
