Giveaway – Give Seattle

Alright everyone.  Since I made a mistake this morning ordering my copy of the Give Seattle Compilation, and ordered 2 accidentally.  We will be giving away 1 download code to one lucky reader.  To be entered in the random drawing for this really cool compilation, all you have to do is leave a comment with one of your favourite albums of the year, one of your favourite songs of the year, and in the Christmas spirit your favourite traditional Christmas song/carol.  So, make sure you forward this link on to everyone you know, and leave a comment and we will be giving the download code away this Friday.

A little about the compilation from the website:

A full 100 percent of sales will go directly to GIVE beneficiaries.

The $7 compilation – conceived and initiated by Caffé Vita, which is producing, curating and funding the project – will be available online as well as in Caffé Vita shops, Easy Street Records, Sonic Boom Records, University Book Store, The Crocodile EMP, and Neumos. These outlets will carry GIVE packages, including physical cards with a redemption code for the download, as ready-to-give presents.

Black, Fatal Lucciauno, Champagne Champagne, Fresh Espresso and Mad Rad; modern folk bands Fleet Foxes and The Cave Singers; country-influenced players The Moondoggies, The Maldives and Sera Cahoone; rock ‘n’ roll outfits Visqueen, Tea Cozies, The Blakes and The Lonely Forest; singer-songwriters Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, David Bazan, Joshua Morrison and Fences; and indie pop acts The Duchess and The Duke, The Long Winters and Pica Beats.

  1. Ohhh this is easy for the christmas song. So as a kid and even up to now i love LOVE the song “little drummer boy”. The silly reason is i can say bum in church. Here is my version

    Come they told me, pa rum bum bum bum
    A new born King to see, pa rum bum bum bum
    Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum bum bum bum
    To lay before the King, pa rum bum bum bum,
    rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum,

    So to honor Him, pa rum bum bum bum,
    When we come.

    Little Baby, pa rum bum bum bum
    I am a poor boy too, pa rum bum bum bum
    I have no gift to bring, pa rum bum bum bum
    That’s fit to give the King, pa rum bum bum bum,
    rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum,

    Shall I play for you, pa rum bum bum bum,
    On my drum?

    Mary nodded, pa rum bum bum bum
    The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum bum bum bum
    I played my drum for Him, pa rum bum bum bum
    I played my best for Him, pa rum bum bum bum,
    rum bum bum bum, rum bum bum bum,

    Then He smiled at me, pa rum bum bum bum
    Me and my drum.

    oooohhh does it have to be traditional??? Can it be Joni Mitchell??? Is that traditional??? River by Joni Mitchell. Final Answer. 😉 If that doesn’t work, Silent Night. sung by my kids.

  4. Gabrielle says:

    I agree with Dana and say “River”, but the Indigo Girls version. However I am also partial to “The pagans and the Christians” by Dar Williams. Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby” is also awesome. Traditional has to be “What Child is This” sung by anyone. Okay too many sorry for the strange rambling. Off to listen to my favorites with an egg nog latte.

    Sorry also had to have a shout -out to Nana Mouskouri’s “Old Toy Trains”. Just wouldn’t be Christmas without it.
