The following song is a true story recounting the trials and tribulations that my mother went through in order to get the Millennium Falcon in time for Christmas day.

The Millennium Falcon for Christmas
by John Anealio

My parents took me to the movies
in the spring of 1979
Something happened to me
as we waited on that line

There was a New Hope in my life

Than later in that December
as we got closer to the holiday
My mother asked me to tell her
What I'd want for Christmas Day

There was just one thing on my mind

I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
and a season full of cheer
I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
but I didn't get it that year

And then in 1980
when the Empire Struck Back
The YT-1300
survived a Star Destroyer attack

I hoped that I was good enough that year

My mother went to the drugstore
and put the ship on layaway
They told her that it would be ready
in plenty of time for Christmas day

but on Christmas Eve it still wasn't there

I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
I was good enough that year
I just wanted the Millennium Falcon for Christmas
and a season full of cheer

My mother cried when they told her that it wasn't there
The clerk said he was sorry but he couldn't find it anywhere
Please don't cry, they have one at our store 30 miles away
I'll go and pick it up so you can have it for Christmas day

Here are some of the tools that I used to record the track:
  1. Martin Acoustic Guitar in Open G tuning (DGDGBD)
  2. G&L ASAT Telecaster-style Electric Guitar in Open G tuning (DGDGBD)
  3. Washburn Bass Guitar
  4. Rode NT-3 microphone (to record the acoustic guitar and my vocals)
  5. Apple Logic Pro 8 recording software
    1. The EXS24 Sampler and EVP88 software instrument plug-ins for the synth and keyboard sounds.
    2. Logic's included compressor, delay, and reverb plug-ins
    3. The electric guitar parts were recorded through Logic's Guitar Amp Pro plug-in
    4. The drum parts were created using Beta Monkey's Drum Werks V loop collection
