The 25 Days of Newman

Every day from December 1st until December 25th (for the benefit of our Festivus-celebrating friends, that’s Christmas Day), we’re presenting a brand-new Randy Newman-style movie theme song, posted at our spanky-new Bandcamp page. Oh, and they’re all available for download absolutely FREE! Of course, you’re certainly welcome to pay for them, if you like. (The site allows you to choose any amount…always appreciated, but by no means required) The songs are also available via iTunes and an RSS feed.

So head on over each morning to our Bandcamp page and check out the new daily Newman. It’s like an Advent calendar, but without the candy, and with a better soundtrack. Thank you to everyone who made movie suggestions—if you hear a movie that you suggested, go ahead and take some credit for it.

UPDATE: We’re writing and recording these as we go along, so movie suggestions are still welcome.

    I just discovered that I must have seen A Christmas Story at some point… nothing on the wikipedia article about it seemed familiar, but I remember the thing about drinking Ovaltine.

    In fact, I think it stuck in my mind because that’s the first time I’d ever heard of Ovaltine. By the way, it’s called Ovomaltine here in Switzerland, apparently there was some kind of typo when they started selling it to other countries.

    Ovamaltine? In my head, I sing that just as Homer sings Sax-a-ma-phone.

    Last one tomorrow. What could it be? Could we stick with the Christmas movie motif and go with a new classic like Elf? Or maybe this will be like that Christmas when we got our first bikes and we’ll get to unwrap a supersized version to encompass the entire Star Wars saga?

    Ooooooo, I’m all a-twitter with anticipation. I’ll never be able to get to sleep. Better leave Milk and Cookies out for Paul and Storm!

    I seriously hope the big finale will be Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.

    Sorry to spoil your Xmas wish, Roman; but no, it’s not.

    It’s not Dr. Horrible, and it’s not Star Wars. It *is* already recorded, so last-minute requests will be to no avail. Beyond that, we will say no more.

    The sooner you get to sleep, the sooner Santa will visit…

    It’s probably The Sound of Music, since that always seems to get played on Christmas Day.

    @Paul and Storm It’s ok, I’m Jewish. No Xmas wish in the first place, thus nothing spoiled 😀

    Inspired by Colleenky, I’ve made a Randy Newman theme for Paul and Storm.

    Gaaaah, need #25!!! I’ve been refreshing that damn page for a few hours now, hoping you would have put it up early like all the other ones. No such luck. : (

    I’m making a CD with all of the tracks and giving it to Neil as part of his Christmas present from me, so that’s why I’m desperately hoping it’ll appear soon. That, and I’m impatient, and need some more PaulAndStormInspiredLaughs®™.

    Besides… it’s TECHNICALLY Christmas here on the East Coast… you guys are such a tease!

    …er, as soon I posted that comment I went back and checked the page one last time before going to bed, and there it was! That sure was fast!

    Thanks guys!
