The 24 Days of Christmas – Day 15

As we all know, Christmas is fast approaching and as we all also know, many of you will be struggling to think of interesting gift ideas for your nearest and dearest. ‘What shall we buy to show our love?!’ we hear you cry. Well, fear not, for we at the Fold know that sometimes, thinking beyond the usual DVD boxsets/smellies/Xbox games can be a little difficult, and so over the course of December we endeavour to bring you a new gift idea each day on the run-up to Christmas, totalling 24, and with each one we shall also bring you an accompanying song that somehow represents the gift in some way. ‘Gift ideas and related entertainment?!’ we hear you now crying! ‘How on Earth do they manage it?!’

Day #15 – Singing Star for a Day Experience


For those with a desire to hit the big time, it’s obvious that we all have to start somewhere. Well, with this thoughtful and unique gift, you get to play Simon Cowell and give someone the chance to hit a recording studio for a full 6 hour session and record around 5 songs (although according to the website, they have actually managed 11!)

Obviously the musician-to-be will need to be well rehearsed and ready to hit the ground running, as it were, but hey – 6 hours with professional sound engineers in a full studio? AND you get to do your own CD artwork too?! Awesome. This would also be a good opportunity for producer friends as well – I’m sure they wouldn’t mind someone tagging along just to ask a few questions of the staff…? Although don’t quote me on that, I’m not being held responsible if it all kicks off…

Now to start hitting up those A&R’s!

Now let me think…. what song would go well with this particular gift? Ahh, I know.

This wasn’t actually the first song I wanted to put up – but unfortunately thanks to draconian copyright laws I wasn’t able to use it. Thankfully, this one’s still a banger.
