White Trash Christmas Bankrupts

lemme guess .... chevy chase and christmas vacation 6 soundtrack?

well .... ok ..... considering how simple this is, a midi loop keyboard I think and an overpowering vocal line - it's very very rushed and gives a feeling of a bit of confusion. certainly not comfy and reassuring ...

the simple key progression loop is not really much to write home about although I will give that it actually does have at least a dark christmas vibe about it ... it's beat is a little disconcerting as well cus it's not really something that flows or grooves at all. like an old hippie with a quirk is driving the sleigh.

I kept waiting for something else to develop, a band entrance - maybe some drums and bass and maybe more - but it just never happened ... and because of that, the song was completely linear and bored me quickly ....

the vocals tried to prevent it, with some ambitious phrasing and an attempt to make the original vibe strong - and the voice at times was actually pretty good - at other times it sounded a little forced and just not quite well rehearsed. but the voice was satisfactory and sometimes spot on. the story line was too personal for my tastes and I have to believe that the jokes surrounding the tune weren't particularly funny at all.

they may be appropriate for a story that is built around the song and maybe there's something slapstick wise that is humorous about it but really .... it's not horrid but really I can't see being interested in the movie based on the song.

so - the positives are there. some good singing, some decent musical ideas ... but there are more negatives.

the bottom line - nobody is gonna buy this song for a soundtrack, you'll have to make the movie yourself.
