Since the birthday boy is a bit excited for his 22nd birthday tomorrow, we thought we would indulge his excitement by giving him one of his presents early.
This song is for you, Tom Felton.
The idea for this particular present was started in early May, 2009, when a group of Feltbeats Army members were twittering away to each other, and Tom, on Twitter. Silliness therein ensued, and over four months, five continents, and many secret messages in the Feltbeats Army Official Business board of our Forum later, what started out as a small group became larger as a songbook was created, composers and musicians found, and singers and translators from all over the world volunteered to contribute to the final product.
Written for and inspired by Tom Felton, Twitter, and Tom’s love of music, the Twittering Tom Song was recorded individually by each contributor using everything from laptop microphones to actual recording set-ups before being sent for final mixing into what you see above. Only through the power of the internet was this song able to come to life. Why? Because we love ya, Tom. 😉
