We going to do that Christmas thing?
« on: November 10, 2015, 09:08:43 AM »
The song thing? So guys, are we going to do it?

Original Thread: http://freebirdgames.com/forum/index.php?topic=6139.0

Keep in mind if we choose to do a charity song, it would be a good idea to also donate some money to charity.

Lyrics/Sheet Music:    (If there are any problems with the lyrics, let me know, I just copy/pasted them from a site)

Lyrics:

Spoiler: show

It's Christmas time; there's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time

But say a prayer to pray for the other ones
At Christmas time
It's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Here's to you, raise a glass for ev'ryone
Here's to them, underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime


Sheet Music: (Keep in mind that you don't need to use sheet music, if you think you can play it by ear, or you can't read sheet music, or you can make it up)

Sorry, can't find too much free sheet music.  :(

It would be helpful if we had a freakin recording studio and a portal to one country.

I thought it was "Do they Know it's Christmas Time?" I guess I feel asleep at some point. You can count me out. I can't sing heavy metal anymore than I can sing Bring Me to Life :-\

I really think we should sing this song. It's probably my favorite.

I definitely would like to take part in it, whatever genre it be, whether metal, or even if it's arabesque! (which is my least favorite genre most probably rofl)

Edit: Btw, talking about metal and christmas reminded me of this absolutely amazing song >w>

Videogame developers are not gods that anyone should worship. I hereby decide that is my top existential reason to prove that horrible, horrible misconception, because that is becoming annoyingly rampant in every corner of the internet.  They can deserve critism, or thrashing even. It doesn't even need to be constructive critism. And even if you are a free game developer doesn't mean community is your personal ego farm.

Cool, we'll need to have someone in charge of gathering together everyone's audio, and we also we need someone who can draw, if we want drawing. I say we should be gathering audio now.

Who wants to do it? Let's nominate people, and then we can have a vote on them, maybe?

Maybe we should test our voices first or make a little thing so we all know what we sound like. (Then SS would be a little less of a surprise...) me or Cydriex can handle the artwork but atm Cydriex is busy with other stuff so I'll take my time to draw something :)

Okay, cool, so DM and/or Cydriex can be in charge of the artwork.

What about compiling the voices? Anyone have Audacity? And about doing all the technical stuff?

Okay, we also need people to volunteer to do instruments.

We need to decide what song to do.

And DM, don't worry, if you don't want to sing then you can always do something else. Also, we might reveal it all after the secret Santas.

Also, keep in mind, if you don't want to sing, or play an instrument, you can always play a simple tambourine or a tringle, maybe bells?
