Steve Goodie Mr. Grint 
Merry Christmas! Especially to those of you who consider the Grinch a role model.

Back in 2009 I made a recording of "You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch" for a Christmas compilation album created by Randy Santiman, one of the sound engineers at the Bluebird Cafe here in Nashville [where I live]. Eschewing the complex orchestral arrangement heard in the original version, I used a single banjo for my rendition, along with the vocal stylings of my buddy Tim Panyard. In 2010 I realized that 'Grinch' sounds a lot like 'Grint,' and with a few more instruments and my own vocal, this mean-spirited Harry Potter song was born. Sorry Rupert... you're my favorite, honest!

Banjo: SG
Acoustic guitar: SG
Upright bass: SG
Drums: SG
Fake bass clarinet: SG
Vocals: SG
Lyrics: SG
Production: SG
Justification for wasting the time it took to make this: SG

Buy this song and 18 others on Something To Sneeze At now, in the FuMP Store or at www.stevegoodie.com, in time for Christmas!!

This is wonderful.

Oh, I see what you did there... I actually had to look up Grint in relationship with Harry Potter to get this.

ALL those sounds were made with an SG? I own one too - a 1963 Gibson beauty! But I NEVER have been able to make it sound like a clarinet.

Don't know HOW you managed to get Thurl Ranvenscroft to sing this from beyond the grave, but well done!

Awesome and hysterical... I hope Rupert Grint hears this someday.

Spot on parody... but I must confess, I don't know what the hell this song is about.

It's about Rupert Grint, the actor who plays Ron in the Harry Potter movies.

Really well done, Steve

I find Ron to be the most unrealistic character in the whole series... a Ginger with two friends??? Psshh.
