    This will no longer be taking place, due to lack of response. Apologies to all those who have committed.

    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!

    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.

    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.
