Hi all...

I'm here to pick the collective hive brain of Christmas fans everywhere...and more specifically of Christmas music fans. A friend and I have written and recorded a Christmas song. I don't want to be accused of spamming, so I won't link to it here, but if you send me a private message I'll be happy to direct you to a place where you can listen to it.

What I'm asking you good people is, how do you think we should go about pushing this song out to as many Christmas music fans as possible. We're not looking to be famous ourselves (although rich would be nice!). What we'd ideally like is for some other act to pick up the song and make it theirs. But to do that I think we need to get it known among the aficionados. The question is, how?!!!

Any ideas or inspiration will be most welcome. And, as I said, I'm happy to send the song to anyone who's interested.

thanks,
eoghan

P.S. For what it's worth, my own top three Crimbo classics are:
1. The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole
2. Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade
3. Driving Home for Christmas by Chris Rea

Welcome!

BTW, I'd try putting your song on youtube.

@HollyJolly - we'll definitely be on YouTube. We're talking to some animators this week about getting a video made.
