Christmas Song

Strophe 1
Stars are shining
Snowflakes falling
Down from sky
Winter vest the earth
Completely new
Sun get replaced
From a heat out of the heart

Refrain
Stars, shining bright
In this holy night
Everything is all right

Strophe 2
Pancakes smelling
chields are yelling
out in the snow
Santa Clause is singing
from a silent night
my dreams are full of angels
praying on their harps

Refrain
Stars, shining bright
in this holy night
everything is all right

Strophe 3
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Christmas on it?s way
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I?m counting every day
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
we celebrate the lord is born

Refrain
Stars, shining bright
In this holy night
Everything is all right

Ha Fisch, i read the vocals first, and i thought....this may be too Christmassy for me....especially so soon in the season..... ;D ;D ;D ;D.. i don't even have bought a christmas tree yet.....but you get away with that sweet and warm stuff easily, and you make it sound thruthfull.

Great broken chords on your guitar, a crispy clear sound on that....but i am not very fond of the separate guitar notes i hear in the left ear (but if that would be more like a cello sound it would work better, i think), but vocal and the main guitar are very good in my opinion

so, yes you again have managed to put in the first entry again for the new songwriting competition, and indeed managed to squeeze in a 'kitchen twist' that is required for the comp (the pancakes  ;D ;D ;D), so the game is on and you set the bar high right away

I enjoyed listening to your Christmas song :) (? with that very subtle reference to food :P)

I really love the guitar ? it sounds brilliant :D and it matches really well with the theme. You?ve managed to create a very ?Christmassy? atmosphere through both music and lyrics. I like your very peaceful imagery which perfectly evokes the simplicity, holiness and happiness associated with this time of year. I also like your refrain ? I think that you really managed to create the feeling that ?everything is alright? throughout the song.

Karma for you :)
Thanks for sharing!

This is a wonderful song. I love these mellow tunes.
And from a songwriting perspective - upper class. I love these harmony changes....really wonderful.

Wow Fischermans!! You are so fast!! Great song, really got in the Xmas vibe! Nice to hear you using the broken-chords technique on the guitar. Sounds like a little/small twinkling Xmas song to me, you almost forget to notice the pancakes when listening haha.
Very well done my friend! MM
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

Wow, Fisch, loving your guitar playing, as I always do  ;D

Those high-pitched little guitar riffs in stereo on top of the track are a really nice addition.
As is the 'clicking' sound... is that a pick being tapped against the guitar body?

Imagine that song playing while sitting in front of the fireplace on a cold winter night, with a cup of steaming hot Gluehwein... perfection  :)

I wished the song was a bit longer, but that's what the replay-button is for, right? :D

Hey Zedd, fine it worked for you.
Michael, thanks a lot. Yes the click sound is my fingernails against the e guitar pick guard. Good that you liked the little guitar riff. :D
And the thing with the replay button, you are also right, he was devised cause fishermans start up making shorter songs. ;D ;D

Hi Fisch,

Thought the clicking sound was inspired - like someone typing out their Xmas list.
Nicely melancholic sounding.
I liked the single note melody. Perhaps would have stuck some reverb on it.

Three very different songs I've heard. Voting will be fun.
