It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas | My Karaoke, Backing track + Process

in Music2 months ago

Hello Folks! Christmas coming soon, so I decided to do some Christmas backing traks on popular songs and carols.

Backing track or Karaoke on Chrismas song "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" with Lyrics and chords. Version by Michael Bublé. You can sing over this or play an instrument.

I did this backing track similar to the original, but not 100%, just my art interpretation of this pleasant Christmas hit with the jazzy arrangement.

About song:

"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas" is a Christmas song written in 1951 by Meredith Willson. The song has been recorded by many artists, but was a hit for Perry Como and The Fontane Sisters with Mitchell Ayres & His Orchestra on September 18, 1951, and released on RCA Victor as 47-4314 (45 rpm) and 20-4314 (78 rpm). Bing Crosby recorded a version on October 1, 1951, which was also widely played. Wikipedia

Brush drums, Acoustic bass, jazz guitar, 3 piano, strings and fx's.

In the intro section I add sounds of magic bells and mix it with winter wind. Intro has very beautiful chord progression:

In string section I used free vst plug-in LABS by SPITFIRE AUDIO.

Lyrics and chords you can see in the video but I also write lyric in the post:

"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" Lyrics:

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
Take a look at the five and ten
It's glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Barney and Ben;
Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go;
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well,
It's the sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

Sure it's Christmas once more...
