Description
A multi-collab made in heaven... or at least in Hillevaag as the place where I live is named;) This song is the 7th in an annual series of collabs I've made around Christmas time.

We have Damien on vox and awesome tenor sax, Bent is the first one out singing and he has also provided some awesome bg vox's. Further more we've got Moviz, Alannah, Jiguma and Ingve who's not yet on MacJams. Ren-Tin-10 has provided the cool flute you can hear in the soloing part of the song. Me myself have done the guitars, bass, keyboards, drums and the tweakin' of the knobs.

Merry Christmas to ya'all!

Lyrics
AND HERE COMES CHRISTMAS EVE
Thor OliversenĀ©2011

All the memories
all the sentiments
of days gone by
and tears I've cried

When someone's here at home
just some to be around
We'll share my wine
And have a real good time.

A special day for all
a warm and common feel -
togetherness
togetherness

And if you are alone
May peace and calm be yours
to have and own
no loneliness

And here comes Christmas Eve
No one should have to be
- alone

Once more, a year gone by
A new one lies ahead
Love and fear
now and then

A day for happiness
it comes from deep within
Let's share my wine
Now, is the time

|: And here comes Christmas Eve
No one should have to be
- alone :|

|: I guess some seek to be
all alone
Christmas Eve :|

|: And here comes Christmas Eve
No one should have to be
- alone :|

bg vox
Thanks, I totally agree on those bg vocals. My good friend Bent, who is responsible for them, delivered some awesome vocal tracks to this collab.

Hi there
Would have loved to have you join... That Damien is a very kind guy who always takes great interest in the process of these collabs. He turned around and recorded the sax track in the last minute - and I think his solo-part gave a brilliant spark to the song.

Char
Thanks:-)

Working with contributions from the good people here is a treat and what makes me do this every year. I get a kick from hearing how all the different parts can blend together into one song, even if they are recorded in different parts of the world. It never stops to facinate me.

UH HUH
Alannah - you crazy girl!
Whassup? OH! ahhhhhhh.....
lovely to hear your clear girlie vocal in the midst of all this testosterone.
Bent - great to finally hear you! MORE PLEASE!
Damien - oh yeah - whenever I hear you sing, I think "this guy's nuts not to sing more!"
Neil - would love to share your wine 8) hard to decline that invite with that voice asking....
Maurice - so good to hear that old world rich voice of yours.
sax is creamy good
the background vocals are just swell!
Yay, the flute player! nice touch there
Thor - my bonnet is off to you. you consistently bring us excellent music and a voice that's soooo, sooooo good.
I really like the playful feel of this one - one gal and a lotta guys is a good formula.

You like it like that!
I see that I forgot to mention in the description that those hip hop shouts ("whassup" and such) are samples from my logic library;-)

I enjoy a lot reading your comment, and how you have a little something for everyone involved.

Thanks my good friend:-)
