STAY FOR CHRISTMAS: The Lyrics

As people are busy streaming the video for our Christmas single we have to assume that you might want to add it to your list of songs to be performed at Christmas.

To help you with that, here’s the full lyrics for “Stay for Christmas” as a pdf file for download:

Stay for Christmas Cover.jpg

I beg you to stay for another day
For the gin, for the fun, for our love
Take your coat if you go, it is going to snow
But inside it is cosy and warm

I beg you to stay just for another day
For the gin, for the fun, for our love
So rest for a while, warm your feet by the fire
If you stay, I’ll keep you safe from harm

I won’t make any promises I know that I can’t keep
No reindeer will be flying by, no Santa in your sleep
No angels playing on a harp, no oxen and no sheep
Yet candles will be burning bright, this Christmas can’t be beat

STAY FOR CHRISTMAS: single and video released!

Who would have thought that of all people The Pop Hypothesis would release a Christmas record? But do not fear for our sanity – of course it is just ironic. In an unironic way though. Or was it unironic in an ironic way? I always get that mixed up.

So, if you think you’ll get sick if you have to listen to Last Christmas one more time but you still can’t do without a proper Christmas earworm to haunt and torment you for weeks and weeks to come – look no further! And don’t forget to check out Either Or, the brand new and not so jolly song on the B-side!

Preview files are here.

This time we finally managed to produce the music video in time for the single release. It’s up on YouTube, you can watch it below. I’m sure it will perfectly put you in the Christmas spirit and prepare you for all the annoying hardships Christmas season may harness.

The video guest stars our good friends The Legends of Rhythm and Gino which marks the first time in 24 years that all original members of The Legendary Film Corporation have acted together. Let’s see what that reunion might lead to…

 

 

The official video for LIFE ACCORDING TO A POP STAR is here.

Some time ago we invited our fans to participate in the video for our latest single “Life According to a Pop Star”. We encouraged them to let out their inner pop stars and dress up and sing and dance to the song. And a lot of people actually did that! And more…

As you sent us so many videos editing took much longer than expected but here is the finished video! We uploaded it on YouTube, it might even turn up on television.

So, a big thank you to everybody who took part in it – you’re pop stars now!

Watch the video here:

 

 

 

A new video for MADELAINE

This summer we finally found the time to shoot a “real” music video for our first single “Madelaine”. The images in the video refer to the single cover which itself was inspired by a line in the original lyrics by Paul Roland.

Due to time constraints, weather conditions and a rather uncooperative horse we had to improvise a lot during the shoot and couldn´t stick to the script, thus the story in the video is only loosely connected to the story told in the lyrics. We still think that the video’s atmosphere complements the song’s one quite well.

The video can be found on Youtube (see below) and in the upcoming video section of our homepage. Who knows, it may even turn up on televison.

This week should also see the last shooting day for the video to our recent single “Life According to a Pop Star”. This video containing clips of fan participation will be released in a few weeks.

After struggling with some deadlines our second single “Life According to a Pop Star / Fair Is Foul” has finally been released today. This time both songs are original compositions. We intend to include both songs in the forthcoming album.

The single is already available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and other download and streaming platforms. It can be previewed there as well as in the discography entry of our homepage. We have provided previews that are a bit longer than on most commercial platforms.

As usual a limited vinyl edition is available in our store. As we sent our mixdown files to a mastering facility the material fits the vinyl a lot better than last time. Thanks to Stefan Noltemeyer at www.mastering-online.com.

Also thank you to all who have so ambitously participated in our video initiative. We’re still working on the final video which will include everybody who set free their inner pop star and sent us a video of himself/herself singing or dancing along to “Life According to a Pop Star”. Also those who did … something else.

The video will be released in late September.

The new single cover

PopStarCover4Rebeat

Here´s a first look at the full cover design for our new single LIFE ACCORDING TO A POP STAR featuring the B-side “Fair Is Foul”.

We´re expecting the arrival of the limited edition vinyl records from the pressing plant any day now. The official release will be in August if everything goes according to plan. In the meantime keep sending in your entries for the video that will accompany the release.

Also check out the update in the discography section.

Next single in the works

We haven’t yet emotionally recovered from our first single MADELAINE peaking at No. 515 in the Amazon pop charts, yet we’re already working on our next release. The picture above is a sneak peak of the cover design for the new single.

Unfortunately mixing took us a few months. For weeks we couldn’t get the sound effects for the drums right before realizing we had been using the wrong keyboard setup to begin with… After that mixing and mastering was done within a week. We think we improved sound quality a lot this time.

Next week we will send all the files to our pressing plant at My45’s so we should be set for a midsummer release.

In the meanwhile we’re working on a lot of other stuff promotion wise that we will share on this website. So stay tuned for more information and a chance to participate in some youtube antics.
