Jeffy’s First Christmas

I (Matt) had the idea to make a Christmas version of our EP while I was at work one night. I excitedly texted Mike and Josh, who didn’t seem too stoked. By the time I got home I had most of the lyrics planned out for the entire release. Turns out it’s pretty easy to write a song when you already know the melody, structure, rhyme scheme, etc. I sent the two of them the lyrics and they were on board. Now, admittedly, this is a silly idea, but I think that if a band I liked did this, I would be totally into it, and I just hoped there would be people out there who felt that way about us. I thought about recording a version of “Jingle Bells” that had mostly the original lyrics, but at the end I would sing an alternate chorus about some of our Community Records friends. We didn’t get this EP done as quickly as I had hoped, though, and I thought recording a new song would be really pushing it. But I included the alternate lyrics down below, just for fun. You can think of what might have been, or record your own Comm Recs “Jingle Bells”.
