Vanessa's Digital Holiday EP 'Hear The Bells' IS HERE!!!
« on: November 08, 2011, 07:08:16 pm »
http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/hear-the-bells-ep/id479330900

Here is the official tracklist:  

1.       Do You Hear What I Hear http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GpMfhbmmLM&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL
2.       Hear the Bells http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dz26NzwUgR0 (thanks, Elinton, for uploading)
3.       Happy Xmas (War Is Over) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRhD5IlqD-A
4.       A Thousand Miles (Acoustic) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKMNNGfdFB0

What are you thoughts? Share!

** I notice that some people are deciding not to buy the EP, for whatever reason. So, I hope everyone gives it a chance and listens to the songs. I am hoping everyone eventually buys a copy. It only costs $3.99. That's dirt cheap. And V could use all the support she can get. If you're unable to buy on iTunes & Amazon, there will be links where you can download the entire EP. **

White Christmas, Chestnuts roasting... (I can't remember the actual name of that song, I think it's just "The Christmas Song"), Sleigh Ride, Winter Wonderland, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, O Come All Ye Faithful

Oooh it would be cool if she did what Jewel has done with a few of her songs - she made Christmas versions of them, basically added bells and other christmasy things to make them sound more like the holidays.  That would be awesomeee.

This is so weird talking about Christmas songs and V. It reminds me of that introduction Stevie gave to Vanessa when they dueted Carousel. Stevie was talking about how V spent the holidays with her and when she asked her to play a holiday song, she said she didn't know any.

Well, now she has an entire EP to answer to that. ;-)

Is anyone thinking that the War is Over cover will have the children's choir again?

1) Do You Hear What I Hear?
2) Carousel, this time with more sleigh bells and a different arrangement.
3) Silent Night
4) Carol of the Bells (Seriously, something haunting won't hurt, right?)
5) Little Drummer Boy


6-20) original songs haha

YES!

Of course!!!!  ;D

I actually wouldn't want to hear any songs that are too traditional except maybe silent night.  I think her voice and style would really suite that song. Umm, what about dradle dradle dradle ? LOL
I think an original tune would be awesome.
I definitely thinkt he John Lennon song should be with a choir! I don't see why she wouldn't do it with one since the song has one in it.
I love White Christmas, that would be nice too.

Someone mentioned it in another topic but I would really love it if she did of a cover of "Santa Baby." I think her voice would suit that song perfectly. I also love all of your suggestions! Especially the one about her a Christmassy version of Carousel! I'm not that really gung-ho about Christmas anymore, but I do still love Christmas music. I really hope that this album has a Vince Guaraldi "Charlie Brown's Christmas" feel to it!

Now that you mention it, it reminds me of how Vanessa's said she loves "A Charlie Brown Christmas" and the music to it-- "Christmas Time is Here" would be a fantastic song for her, especially since I can see her having a lot of fun playing the piano for the song.  Also, it's a damn awesome song in it's own right too.

I dont think "Hear the Bells" is the next single.  Its just the name of the "album"
