Do they know it's Christmas would probably be best but maybe (a non-heavy metal version of) Jingle Bells might be easier.

Either way, I can't sing!

Yeah, I think that Jingle Bells (non-metal of course) would be the easiest option, since more people probably know it, and it would be easier to start from scratch. All we need to do is choose the key, come up with a standard set of lyrics and chords, and make a backing tract (likely piano), and then go from there.

I recently started listening to Jingle Bells by Basshunter but maybe we can put our own little Freebird spin on it :)

How about taking the lyrics of jingle bells, and altering them in a way that each verse makes a reference to a game of Kan Gao? :'3
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.

Okay, voting is over, I needed to remove my vote and place it somewhere else, because it was a tie. It seems like we will be doing the original one we intended to do, Do They Know It's Christmas. Guys we need to start now to gather vocals and instrument recordings.

Any ideas that we had this year that didn't happen, such as that Freebird based Christmas song, we can do next year or the year after. :)

And more of us need to contribute, so far very few people are doing this....

I'm still not confident in my voice. Plus I have a bit of a cough too (and no, that's not a made up excuse :-\ ) I guess we can talk it over in the Skype meeting or voice chat somewhere.

First we're going to need to decide which version of the song we're gonna base it off of. Personally I like the 1984 version (original) the best. I'd be willing to record the little synth-flute licks on the ocarina!

The original does seem to be the best, and would be very easy to find sheet music for.

I think we may have been able to incorporate a bit of For River in Jingle Bells but oh well.

I think I should be the second or third singer in this thing.

Okay guys, can you guys start sending me your recordings? I will leave the sheet music and the lyrics (that I can find off the internet) in the original post. If you have any questions just message me.

I feel like we're going to need a backing track, or else different people are going to have wildly different tempos and pitches.

Maybe. And also maybe you should post here and specify which part of the song you want to sing.

I could just sing the whole song and you could pick which line(s) you want me to do.

I'd also be willing to play accordion, tuba, and ukulele in addition to ocarina.
