The Twelve Days of Christmas: A Video Game Music Event - Day 12

Recommended Posts

Hope everyone's having a good December so far. As stated in a previous thread, I(along with a few others) wanted to do a Video Game Music type event for the month of December.

That event will be:

The Twelve Days of Christmas

So what will you be doing for this event, you ask?

Step 1: Pick 12 pieces of Video Game Music. They could be your Favorite Tracks, Tracks from Games you Got as Christmas gifts, Christmas Themed Tracks, all tracks from the same series, etc.

Step 2: Alter the lyrics of "The 12 Days of Christmas" so that each "Gift of the Day" is some how related to one of the 12 tracks you chose.

The Original Song and What Lyrics Need Changing

Green = Must Change(unless it fits), Red = Can Change, Not Required, 'Sent' can be replaced with 'Gave'

On the First Day of Christmas, My True Love Sent to Me,
A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

On the Second Day of Christmas, My True Love Sent to Me,
2 Turtle Doves,
and A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

On the Third Day of Christmas, My True Love Sent to Me,
3 French Hens,
2 Turtle Doves,
and A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

*keep repeating/adding until Day 12*

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas, My True Love Sent to Me
12 Drummers Drumming,
11 Pipers Piping,
10 Lords a-Leaping,
9 Ladies Dancing,
8 Maids a-Milking,
7 Swans a-Swimming,
6 Geese a-Laying,
5 Gold Rings,
4 Calling Birds,
3 French Hens,
2 Turtle Doves,
and A Partridge in a Pear Tree.

Step 3: On the corresponding day (The 1st Day of Christmas starts on December 13th and continues until December 24th), you will post that verse into your post and keeping adding to it as the days go by (while also linking that song to the corresponding verse).

Example:

 

Dec 13th - On the 1st Day of Christmas, my ROB the Robot gave to me:
A Poorly Programmed Game from Beam Soft.

Dec 14th - On the 2nd Day of Christmas, my ROB the Robot gave to me:
2 Planetoids,
and A Poorly Programmed Game from Beam Soft

Dec 15th - On the 3rd Day of Christmas, my ROB the Robot gave to me:
3 Yellow Lighters,
2 Planetoids,
and A Poorly Programmed Game from Beam Soft

And so on.

 

Other Things to Note:

If you would like to participate, but you don't think you'll be able to keep up with posting,

Spoiler

you can post your entire song/list and hide the days that have yet to pass behind a Spoiler.

You don't have to have the amount of Syllables match.

If anyone is brave enough to record themselves singing their own version, feel free to share it

(Not me, I'm a coward)

 

I think thats everything. If you have any questions, just let me know.

On the Twelve Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave to Me,

Twelve checkpoints crossed
Eleven bounties collected
Ten materia a-casting
Nine Dragauxes dancing
Eight ghosts a-throwing
Seven children a-shopping
Six Crucibles rip and a-tearing
Five demon's souls
Four streets of raging
Three savage beatdowns
Two imposters among us
and a fox in a cherry blossom tree

Really pushed it for the last two I guess 😆 Those were super hard to come up with anything for.
12 hot air balloons refers to the biggest platform on the stage. Count them yourself. 😛
And there are indeed 11 individual bosses in the first Darius game, due to them being reused between multiple stages on different routes through the game.

Wait, how is the 13th "the first day of christmas"? What's the logic behind this?
I was waiting for this event, but I had no idea it started before christmas, so now I'm behind everyone 🤣

I mean you aren't wrong.  The 12 days of Christmas is suppose to go till Epiphany/Feast of Kings on Jan 6th.  But with Christmas stuff starting earlier and earlier I guess people are sick of Christmas by then.

Huh....I totally didn't get that as a kid.  I always thought the 12 days of Christmas was leading UP to Christmas day not not starting on Christmas day and the following days.  Song makes more sense now....also NO!  We can not have Christmas extending into January....it already starts in October.
