Description
This is a song with a theme suited for christmas time. I've been so lucky to get some great MJ 'ers to join in on it.
This is my first go at mixing a blend of MJ'ers in a collab like this. I hope everyone comes out the way they hoped for...:)


The good people is:
Selters: Vocals
joshosh18: Vocals
daphna: backing vocals and genius piano performance
ledebutant: vocals
alannah: Vocals
mcboy: acoustic, classical guitar work
zteffen (this is my son): electric guitar
And myself: vocals, acoustic guitar (western), bassguitar, whirly piano, harp tootin' and drum programming.

A great THANK YOU to all of you for helping me with this song:)

Merry Christmas everyone.

Lyrics
At Christmas time
Thor Oliversen © 2005

Come home, no need to fear
you will do fine
We'd love to see you here
at christmas time.

And everyone will be
a friend - you'll find
and you will be with me
at christmas time

Oh keep your faith
No one will make a fuzz
It's not too late
'cause you are one of us.

Now will you choose to come
not hide in fear
To be with everyone
at christmas time

You should know that we all care
Do you think we don't know how it is
Would you be there if I needed you
'cause I know you would...

So sorry
I couldn't get something together for you on this. Had some things come
up that were unavoidable. This is a terrific song- pure, sweet and
heartfelt.

Nice job to all the collaborators- a job very well done and downloaded!

Im proud!
To have taken part in this! Such a great performance from all the macjammers participating! The mix sounds very nice and balanced. I can play it loud om my cheap speakers :). The spanish guitar and Piano was a very nice surprize! I dont envy you the job in mixing all the vocaltracks together. Must have been quite a lot of work! Merry Christimas!

Im proud!
I'm proud as well:) It was so great that all of you guys joined me in this. It was a thrill to check the mail for new contributions, and exciting to mix it together.
The work was just fun and enjoyable, alltough I came across some challenges on making the overall sound get balanced. I guess I've learned a thing or two during the process. Thanks for joining:) You deliver a good and warm vocal Selters.

All I Want for Christmas
For Christmas I'm going to ask Santa to make me as amazing a
musician, singer, songwriter, producer as you, Thor. I feel so lucky that
my cold passed in time for me to get to participate along with selters,
josh, daphna, alannah, mcboy and zteffen. I actually can't believe I got
to do something with such great musicians. What a fantastic Christmas
present.

Having heard your original version of this, I know how many additional
elements you had to balance. Your production is creative and
extremely well-handled. If Santa gives me what I ask for this year, next
Christmas I'm going to ask him to teach me to program drums like
you. I almost sent you an email asking you the identity of your fantastic
drummer; the drums sound so real.

All I Want for Christmas
I'm blushing over here ledebutant...

I was worried I'd get no femal vocals on this for a while. But in the last days they luckily popped in:) It wouldn't been as good without you girls:)
Thanks!

A Christmas Keeper
I think this came out beautifully ... a true Christmas keeper which I know will be played each year by my family for many years .... In listening I would never have guessed that such a group of people did not spend hours practicing and rehearsing their parts together trying to find the right balance of harmony and melody ... very well done and mixed to perfection !

A Christmas Keeper
Thanks Alannah, it so nice that you think it will be a classic in your family.

I'm also very pleased with how the final mix of this turned out to be.
I was kind of deaf after mixing for a couple of hours late yesterday, and was pleased when I found it to be allright when I listened again to day.

Merry Christmas to you and your family:)

Turned out great!
I'm so sad I didn't get a chance to participate in this one... Too much
work to do this time of year! But you all sound great. It's like an All-

Good Song
I like the mellow, easy-going performances and melody.
Unfortnately, the "You are one of us" line reminds me of the end of the
old horror movie "Freaks". Eek.
