View Full Version : Nutcracker: List of Christmas Songs

This post really has nothing to do with Nutcracker, it is a general list of Christmas songs.

There is a thread about "What songs are you using this year".

Almost 200 songs were posted into the thread.

i decided that i could use this list of songs in nutcracker for my projects.

so ...
i have parsed all of the songs from the emails, eliminated duplicates, loaded them into a database. There were 162 songs. If a song was done by multiple artists, they get their own row. Regular polls would probably not work so well for this many entries so i built a form.

Go to http://meighan.net/nutcracker/effects/xmas_songs.php

Click on every song you plan on using this year (If you are ryan johnson your wrist will get tired from the clicking)

Submit the form and your vote is tallied. The more people who do this, the more reflective of the overall usage of songs in sequencers. Look under the "Votes" column to see the current count.
A user can only vote for one song once, but you can vote for all 162 if your are going to be really busy.

If people see errors, post them here or pm me.

also when referring to a song please reference my SongID, it will make it easier.

Please post the URL's to amazon for listening to these songs, this will make it easy for people to browse the Christmas Song library.

Are we still able to suggest new songs? My wife and I just nailed down the songs we plan on using two nights ago.

absolutely, i only just made a baseline.

we have 162 songs. i think it will be 200-250 songs by November.

just suggest you give name of song, artist and ideally a link to amazon.

ill load database and people will see them and can vote on them

Thee new feature that has the songs timeline already configured is there any video of that so i can see it in action and how it works.
Any any update on single string effects for nutcracker im looking to use them for my mini tree that zigzags from bottom up and goes left to right up to top.
