Hi all! As you can see from the fabulous banner above, it's time for the TowersStreet Christmas Music Video 2015, and I've volunteered to organise it... what have I done?! :D

I made an attempt to do this last year but left no where near enough time to gauge much interest. As a result we are going to be singing our merry hearts out to Jingle Bell Rock, because we can reuse a couple of members' videos from last year, and definitely not because of the tenuous link to Europa-Park... hehe.

Here is the song for anyone who doesn't know it, though I would assume most of you do!

Right then, the lyrics!
(16) lines remaining.

1. Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock @delta79
2. Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring @MattyH
3. Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun
4. Now the jingle hop has begun @Rowe

5. Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
6. Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
7. Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square @Jonathan
8. In the frosty air @Tom.B

9. What a bright time, it's the right time @bluesonichd
10. To rock the night away
11. Jingle bell time is a swell time
12. To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh @jenniferelka

13. Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet @Mike
14. Jingle around the clock
15. Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
16. That's the jingle bell rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bell chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air


17. What a bright time, it's the right time
18. To rock the night away
19. Jingle bell time is a swell time
20. To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh

21. Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
22. Jingle around the clock
23. Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
24. That's the jingle bell
25. That's the jingle bell @LittleDelta
26. That's the jingle bell rock @Joseph

What do I need to do?

If you've partaken in the Christmas video before you'll know what you need to do! If not, you will need:
  • Courage - If you're not awfully good at singing, don't panic! There will be plenty of other people just as bad at it... but it's all for fun!
  • Christmas Decorations - Makes it look like effort has gone in and also means the video looks nice and festive!
  • Imagination - We don't want all the clips to look exactly the same, so put your own festive twist on your submission! You can do anything you like (within reason) as long as it features your beautiful(!) singing. Get partners/family/pets involved and even get dressed up if you really want to push the boat out!
  • Video+Audio recording device - Otherwise we won't be able to hear/see you!
To take part, you'll need to select one of the above lines in the spoiler box to sing. If there are some lines spare as we edge closer to the deadline, we may allow you to pick another line to sing if you're feeling brave! Your video clip will be stitched together with everyone else's, with a backing track dubbed on underneath everyone's videos.

So you're up for it? Brilliant! You'll need to record and submit your video by December 10th. This means you have more than enough time to think up those wacky ideas, record and submit your video in time, and will mean for us that if any lines are left we can get those filled in with enough time to spare. More important details on recording/submitting footage will be posted over the next few days, so watch this space and don't go recording yourselves just yet!

This is the instrumental version of the song you are going to be backed by on the video, so when you are recording yourselves, please be listening to this version otherwise it will not work!

So what now?

Please reply to this thread with the lyric number you wish to sing for the video. Lyrics will be handed out on a first-come-first-serve basis, so if you have a favourite line, get in there quick!

Please do not reply to this thread if you cannot 100% commit to being able to sing a line! It would be fantastic for this little project to become a success, and will not let the lovely folk who are committed down.

Any questions? If so, please post below rather than messaging me privately, as someone else may have a similar question.

Thanks everyone!

Is there a maximum on how many lines we can choose?

You forgot to mention that anyone sending in vertical video will be banned.
That will be mentioned in the more detailed post coming soon. :)

At the moment it's just one, however if there are a few lines that aren't being taken closer to the due date then people can pick another line.

Take it my video from last year is being used. hopefully the xmas video gets enough people this year to be produced.

Tom Little Delta did a line last year. have you missed that?

She did indeed but she sang it quite quietly so it would be even harder to hear over the backing. If she wishes to have another go this year, be my guest. :)

I will ask her if she want to do it, if so i may get her to go for an easier line this year.
