  • 00:00 : (duration: 00:38) Introduction
  • 00:38 : (duration: 02:57) Song 1. Christmas 7th Mansion
  • 03:39 : (duration: 03:00) Song 2. Christmas 7th
  • 06:51 : (duration: 03:47) Song 3. A Mansion for Christmas

Total duration: 10:38

Minus Introduction: 10:00

As songs, I’m unhappy with the results. I don’t feel I varied the tune enough between the songs. The melody isn’t particularly catchy in any of them.

As “story seeds”, they have potential, though.

“Christmas 7th Mansion” : There’s a long series of Christmas mansions on this road, and Santa might live in one of them. There’s also the notion of “mansions in your heart”.

“Christmas 7th” : This is about a lonely man hanging out in his empty mansion on the 7th day of Christmas.

“A Mansion for Christmas” : Can Santa’s bag carry a mansion? Is it a real mansion or a toy mansion? What would the Easter bunny do to help the situation?
