Would you like a Christmas Album?

Postby kevilish » 26 Sep 2013, 16:01

As Christmas time will arrive quickly now, I was wondering if you'd like Geri to record a Christmas album and what tracks you'd like it to contain.
Here's the album I'd like.

Share your tracklist and / or covers.

Dear god no! Some of the greatest singers and artists have covered/sang those songs, Geri isn't going to add anything vocally to them and there is only so much you can do with christmas songs.

New fun material is a must.

An EP would be just ok.

1. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (in Connie Francis arrangement, no trashy Aguilera spasmic mess)

2. Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

3. The Bell That Couldn't Jingle/Jingle Bells Medley

4. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

5. Sleigh Ride

6. Silent Night

7. Baby It's Cold Outside (featuring Gary Barlow)

I wouldn't mind some mini Christmas EP from Geri or something, but a full album probably wouldn't work for her.

Voted "No" just because a full album would be a bit too much and like Sammy said, these songs have all been done to death, I don't know what else she would bring to the table. I wouldn't mind a couple of covers, and maybe an original Halliwell Christmas song here and there (she could totally write something cheeky and fun a la "All I Want For Christmas", without the diva vocals obviously), but not a full album.

I really really want a Christmas EP with 3-4 songs and I'm sure she can make some original Christmas songs.

At this stage, I'm open for everything. A Xmas album is better than no music at all. But I want her to release the original album first. Then she can record a Hawaiian Christmas album if she wants to. Although yeah, a digital EP would be nicer. Just 5 o 6 songs (1 or 2 of them original written by her).

1. New Song (fun)
2. Jingle Bell Rock / Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree
3. Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
4. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
5. New Song (slow)
6. Santa Baby / White Christmas
iTunes bonus: Merry Christmas Everybody (feat. the Spice Girls)

Perfect to me.



Now, for real, I wrote this for fun, but hearing some Xmas songs that would fit Geri's voice I realized her voice is great for a Christmas album and I wouldn't totally rule out the possibility of it even having good sales if that was released.

The thing is yea, I think her voice would totally suit christmas songs. It would be a great surprise, a small EP could be great, just like Kylie Minogue did in 2010 but with one original song.

That doesn't mean every Christmas album has to flop now. Michael Bubble's Christmas album was huge. And yeah, I know Geri is closer to Steps league than Michael's but I think that when it comes to Xmas records, the general public simply buys what they like, no mater who's the singer. Geri's been away from music for so long we can't really judge how her music would chart yet.

Look at Mel B, we all didn't give a cent for her because she was floppy Spice and now her new single is doing ok for the amount of promo she's done. If she had done a proper release with UK promo it would've probably done better than Melanie C's latest efforts. So who knows what will happen with Geri. Let's wait and see and if her solo album sells ok, I'll be 100% open to a 2014 Christmas EP. :)

I think they were referring to the fact that the steps Xmas album was shit not that it flopped lol.

I'd like one but only if it was as an extra not instead of new material! Also a couple if new Xmas songs is a must

without a doubt. actually thats a great idea. it might just be the campiest moment in her career thus far.
regardless of what she does next, first i suggest she spend lots of time in gay bars... watching beyonce on youtube.
shake it out geri.

Christmas albums only really work if the artist is prepared to camp it up a bit. I don't know if Geri would do that these days. I can definitely see Emma doing a Christmas album, though. She has the perfect market appeal for it.
