For all the excellent principles and unique profound diamonds, there’s a list of Christmas cuts that incline toward something somewhat more unhinged. While conventional songs and psalms are great for singing at Christmas celebrations, you might need to flavor it up a tad with some clever tunes to offer some relief. Throughout the long term many have become visible – ‘ All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth’, ‘Grandmother Got Run Over by a Reindeer’, ‘Redneck 12 Days of Christmas’, ‘I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus’, yet the rundown is perpetual.
This year we have a pristine competitor for that rundown, named ‘Christmas on Cellblock 9’. The melody was made by the songwriting and creation group behind the #1 worldwide iTunes hits, “I Will Tell Jesus You Said Hello” and “My Worth” – See Your Shadow Songwriting, drove by Michael Coleman. Based out of Phoenix, Arizona, the venture has a synergistic organization of capable singers and performers.
Michael Coleman, the masterful head of See Your Shadow Songwriting, composes and creates all the tunes. “Christmas on Cellblock 9″ has been bound to happen,” says Coleman. “I have been needing to do an occasion record for a long time. I originally got the thought when I was chipping away at another venture around occasion time, with one of my long-term partners. I was tuning in to some Christmas music on the radio, and I contemplated internally – ‘the public necessities something different that is clever, other than, ‘Grandmother Got Run Over by a Reindeer.’
It seems like Coleman positively prevailing in his assignment, however he may simply have upped the ante. Remove the sleigh chimes and the Christmas undertones, and you have yourself a damn decent up-rhythm, and radio-prepared nation tune. Overflowing with jangly plays, searing leads, a snappy melody and a resounding lead vocal, ‘Christmas on Cellblock 9’ is not kidding music in reality. Until you tune in to the verses… or watch the video.
“Christmas on Cellblock 9” takes a comedic wind as the narrative of being captured on Christmas Eve unfurls into a to some degree horrendous experience for the hero. Things reach a crucial stage, when the melody hits the theme: “Decking the lobbies behind solid dividers, Jack Frost was nipping, yet not at my nose. Telling bubba no methods no, under the mistletoe. That occasion invested doing energy, Christmas on Cellblock 9.”
This record is tight and all around recorded without being over delivered or under blended. As can be normal from the See Your Shadow Songwriting group, driven by Michael Coleman, all parts of the music and the verse sheet, is consummately right on target.
Set aside any inclination you may have about Christmas melodies, and adventure out of your purposeful domains as I did. Give it two or three twists and perceive how it feels. I think you’ll be exceptionally happy you did. Its brightness and amazing effortlessness has the right to address you straightforwardly. This must be about the best comedic Christmas tune written in quite a while.
