Have A Christmas Party

Intro

let’s have a Christmas party
let’s have a Christmas party
yeah we’re gonna invite nobody

It’s just gonna be me and you
It’s just gonna be me and you
hey, we’ll be the party of two

turnaround

gonna hang mistletoe everywhere
we’ll hang mistletoe everywhere
gonna let down my hair

We’ll dance around the tree
We’ll dance around the tree
just me me and my baby

Outro

Hi there J&B.

Wonderfully cool.

I'd much rather listen to this in the shopping mall than the tired old tracks we get every year.

Super backing, and Janice, you excel at everything you turn your hand to.

Loved the whole thing.

Merry Xmas.

ROG.

J&B,

What`s not to like! Having seen the video of Janice singing ( on Flod`s song creation post) I can picture some bopping going on while this was recorded.
Cool outro.
Merry Christmas!

Robert

Why can I just see dancing around the mic? Happy little tune!!

I wanted to write a Christmas song, but as much as I dislike Christmas, it may be better if I don't.

This was just so much fun! listen to it a couple of days ago but just now getting around to comment - danged flu bug!

This is just what I needed to cheer me up as I listened again. I love Rock-a-billy - got one or two somewhere in the process. I often think of the days I listened to Carl Perkins, early Elvis and early John cash songs. That deep guitar reverb is such a signature part of the sound.

Janice's vocal's are always among the very best on the site. This is just further proof. Great arrangement and production.

And Merry Christmas to both of you!

Alan

J&B, This is a good time Christmas tune and should make the playlist of all Christmas parties. Bud it sounds like you've got the not so distant cousins delay and reverb figured out. The backing forms the perfect framework for Janice's perfectly executed bluesy vocal. Great outro! Merry Christmas to you both, Tom

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
