Tuck me in tonight - multicollab


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This will be my 4th Christmas Collab on this wonderful website. I written some lyrics, and I have made a melody.... then I've asked for some assistance on making it a complete song to put out here... I got the help I wanted... and this is what came out. It involves macjams members and some none mj'ers.

From macjams I give you:
selters - vocals
bent - vocals
damiengh -Vocals, sax and fab solo flute
Tobin Mueller - brilliant sassy soul organ
lengold - vocals
jiguma - vocals
thoddi - vocals, guitars, bass, trumpet and drum programming
alfalpha - tenor and trumpet

And we also honored to have...
Yeman A. Al-Rawi - (Birdman Wayne) vocals and a sparkling great guitar solo
Anne Cozean - vocals (formerly known as "sisters" at macjams)
Anja Tumert - vocals

Earlier years collabs:
2005: AT CHRISTMAS TIME


2006: LET NO ONE STAY OUTSIDE


2007:
THE SAME HERD

Hope you like it... It has been a pure joy to work with you all, and to put it together, this year as the previous ones...:)

TUCK ME IN TONIGHT
Thor Oliversen©2008

TUCK ME IN TONIGHT
I WANNA SLEEP LIKE A CHILD
I DON’T NEED YESTERDAYS TO HAUNT ME
OH GIVE ME PEACE OF MIND

Monday mornings can be hard
Sometimes I feel like staying home
Tuesday comes and I’m on guard
I’m sure I’m stuck in this alone

Sober up is hard to do
I’m pretty blinded by some shiny lights
I pour myself a nervous brew
And pick some manageable fights

|: TUCK ME IN TONIGHT
I WANNA SLEEP LIKE A CHILD
I DON’T NEED YESTERDAYS TO HAUNT ME
OH GIVE ME PEACE OF MIND :|

We gather for a special day
Please leave the questions for another time
I haven’t got so much to say
All I want is to feel fine

|: TUCK ME IN TONIGHT
I WANNA SLEEP LIKE A CHILD
I DON’T NEED YESTERDAYS TO HAUNT ME
OH GIVE ME PEACE OF MIND :|

Oh doctor, give me something strong to ease the pain
Or should I read a book that leads me to be sane
How come I feel I am the only one to blame
I can no longer play this game

|: TUCK ME IN TONIGHT
I WANNA SLEEP LIKE A CHILD
I DON’T NEED YESTERDAYS TO HAUNT ME
OH GIVE ME PEACE OF MIND :|

The Last Waltz!
Alf and Thor - that horn section brought tears to my eyes - so much like The Band in their later years - BEAUTIFUL! And Alf, I hope the lips are working again after all that blowing!

Another top Xmas post from you Thor - full of admiration for the way you put all this together each year. Always wanted to have Tobin (Garth) Mueller play keys on something I was on :)

Thanks everyone!

Happy Christmas!

Thanks for joining in this year. Your voice surfaces a couple of places here and adds to give it a worldwide signature with your cool aussie accent:)

All the best to you and yours from the cold north:)

Thanks again!
Thor,

Thanks again for letting me be a part of this Holiday Special, and it is special, for it demonstrates the collaborative spirit that is MacJams.

The mixing job itself is most challenging, and you always manage to bring out the best of each of us.

Happy Holidays to all!

Damien
You are a vital ingredient not only in this song but to the macjams community. You have put a lot of good energy into this, and contributed much to make this happen. Not only with your cool voice (which reminds me of Willie Nelson's) but with adding two tracks of sax to the horn section and that ultra cool flute solo.

Wishes for a peaceful and happy holiday season to you and yours:)

What a great song, and a great collab! Sounds like your all together on stage having a party and enjoying the song!

Very nice mixing job, with all that going on!

thoddi said 3103 days ago (December 25th, 2008)
Thanks
When I get all the contribution to the song in my email, and start mixing it all together, it's like I get to know everyone involved a little better. It's something I enjoy very much doing, and I guess I'll go for another one next year as well:)

Maybe I could tempt you to deliver some drums then;)

Thanks for dropping in and leaving encouraging fine words.

Enjoyed
wow, lots of nice things in there. Love the we are the world type feel to this. Ya that is a brilliant organ sound. Enjoyed Birdman's delightful lead guitar solo. There is so much in there but it is a great tribute to thoddi's magnetism to draw all these sweet mj musicians!
Way to Go indeed!

Fantastic!
I got to say that i think this is the best christmascollab so far. That doesn't say anything about the last years collabs, but a lot about this one. The overall sound quality of this one is great. You have done a terrific job unifying all the submissions to a whole. It sounds great. Thank you for letting me join in on this one!

help...comes from your song tonight!
At a crazy time.
I find some 'peace' in the emo pouring out here vocally and instro's

I'm hurting that i couldn't get you that track to be in this.

I am in awe of what you do with these multi jobs

instrumentally this is so fine. With the help of Tobin and Damien
both delivered such cool stuff
and your solo on the acoustic,
perfect/classy thoddi

as in last years song, you have such diverse vocalist ( it is becocming a style or genre call it toddi)
hearing the vocals connect from all around is special! and you casrt this magic a very special time of year

Thanks a lot for such fine words. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the contributions I got from the fine musicians involved.

I just have to point out that it is not me playing the solo on the acoustic guitar - we had the pleasure of having Yeman A. Al-Rawi - (Birdman Wayne) take care of that part this year:)

Thanks again Timothy. I hope you and yours have a peaceful holiday season.

The love
Thanks for the opportunity to add to your collab. Such a solid tune, combining the best of many of MJers folk rock attributes/roots. Love the "sober up is hard to do" line. And "manageable fights." Thanks for all the work this takes, the many hours of pre and post production. And for all the love.

Maybe the next MJ reunion can be in Norway? I've always wanted to visit those gorgeous fjords.

It has been an honor getting you onboard. I was thrilled to get your track. It really put a new dimension into the song. Your soloing and supportive work is very creative and brought new energy to the song.

Thank you very much for participating.

It would be cool to meet some macjammers over here and showing you our fjords. Though I wouldn't mind taking a trip to USA again;)

Thanks for dropping in and leaving your kind words:) Yeah, isn't that cool - hearing all the familiar voices popping in and out of a song. It's a thrill getting to do these collabs. What Anne (sisters) sent me was a pure delight to listen to. Her voice melts in my ears like butter on a hot potato:) Yeman has become a great guitarist and did very good in here.

It was a pleasure...
....and an honour to be part of this collab Thor, many Thanks for posting the request for 'horns'. In a way, you gave me the best Xmas present ever, in that re-discovering my brass instruments I realise that I have really missed playing them, & Thanks to you, I'll certainly be looking to re-vitilising my poor old 'chops' in the new year!

All The Best & a Very Happy new Year to you & yours!
Cheers from 'Down Under'!

You saved the day when you knocked on the door and told me you could play the brass parts:) And you sure have it in you still. In fact you inspired me to try a little trumpet playing myself. I recently got myself a new one from ebay, but haven't really blown to much air through it since I got it.

It's not unlikely that I'll ask for your favors in future projects;)
