Finished by…?

OK, Christmas Eve 2012 sounds reasonable. But we said the same thing last year, and the
result was some stunning outburst of cool interpretations. And also a bunch of nice songs
none-finished –not because of the lack of quality – but due to the fact that a wild creative international population of PORTAL fans spent their free time writing new lyrics, reaaranging new songs via piano, pc, or any other instruments, reording the bits, making videos, and sending them arround the world to glue them together as one.
In 2011 we made 30 songs, parts of them finished, parts not.
So 2012 is tuning in!
And before the world ends at 2012/12/21:
Let’s make the best of it!!!
yours LIA+++

    Okay, here it goes. This is based off of Mariah Carries version of “All I want for Christmas is you” and I call it “All you need for Christmas are tests.” If necessary, you can change the lyrics a little. It starts off like it seems that GLaDOS is allowing Chell to come back to Aperture so that she can test again, and ends up as GLaDOS BEGGING Chell to come back as soon as possible.

    [Sung by GLaDOS]
    Here is an idea I had; maybe the Turrets could sing the background parts

    [Intro, Slow]
    You don’t need a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing you crave
    You don’t care about the turrets
    that you put into the grave

    But for you, I surely know
    Since you left, you’ve lost your glow
    You miss my cruel jests
    All you need for Christmas
    are tests

    [Tempo Increases]
    You don’t need a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing you crave
    You don’t care about the turrets
    that you put into the grave

    You don’t speak so you can’t carol
    to your neighbors just for fun
    Although you put me in peril
    and I told you that you’re done,

    It seems that tests make you grin
    I’ll even say you are “thin”
    Though pain in me fests,
    All you need for Christmas are tests
    (tests, baby)

    Oh I want a lot for Christmas
    that includes a new mainframe
    Blue and Orange to finally listen
    and not treat tests like one big game

    New turrets that have arm missiles
    Access to Black Mesa’s base
    Three new cores to clean the chambers
    and a brand new Fire Place

    Though, I want these, I digress
    You need this, which you obsess
    Ignore all the protests:
    All you need for Christmas are tests
    (tests, baby)
    OHoohooh!

    Oh The portal gun is here
    waiting for your arms
    And I’m bored of sitting
    waiting for alarms

    Hurry, ‘cause the bird’s coming
    I hear it’s dreadful humming!
    Just light it on fire and throw it fryer ?
    Won’t you please come faster, It’s way too close!

    Oh I don’t want a lot for Christmas
    This is all I’m asking for
    I want to see you Chell, deary
    Standing right outside that door

    Oh I just want you to come here
    To make that bird disappear
    Grant me my requests
    Turns out:
    All you need for Christmas are tests

    Turrets:
    Tests baby
    All you need for Christmas are tests baby
    All you need for Christmas are tests baby
    All you need for Christmas are tests baby

    Did the people who are helping with this have to sign up, or can anyone who wants to participate join at any time?
