This song took me the most time out of any song I did this year. I got my buddy @siebass involved in his first FAWM this year, and I said, "We gotta work together!" after hearing him rap on something. Sadly, because we were unable to collaborate on location, this ended up being a little Winter-heavy, but we plan on re-recording it to make it a little longer and more even.
Be ups to my buddy @insaneian, who jumped in last second to be Autumn, but sadly, we didn't use the take due to a lack of time to get this done. However, I have to thank him because his performance of the like "Nobody loves you, Spring!" made me change how I recorded it. Thank you, Ian.
Couple neat facts about the song, uh, well, it's a combination of analog hard synths and some Garageband soft synths, as well as some guitar. But, fun fact, the guitar tapping and whammy madness you hear in the build up during Autumn's intro is NOT guitar, but actually an analog synth run through a guitar amp sim. The guitar riff during his verse, however, is actual guitar.
Also, underneath Winter's verses, you may spot the melody of Carol of the Bells and the Game of Thrones theme. Under Summer's second verse is the melody of "Summer Lovin'."
We hope you guys love it. This was a ton of fun. I'd like to keep this going each year.

I'm the ice cold superman
master of the wonderland
More chilly than willy certainly
Whiter than republicans
All my little snowflakes
each one of them unique
If seasons were a mountain
I'd be the snow capped peak
I keep hot people
in tight sweaters
Hair's prone to frizz
Now it looks better
I got sled rides, dope ski lodges
Go ice skatin’, snow ball dodgin’
All my holidays are choice, son
Christmas, New Years number one
I got Valentine’s to keep lovers bangin’
St. Patty’s day to keep drunkards sangin’
Summer man, I see you shiverin’
Let’s hear your weak ass deliverin’
I'll turn your army of snowmen
into an ocean
and that's when you'll know
that your ice flow
stands no chance
You'll drown in the torrent
your lyrics abhorrent
and while you flap and wander
I'll put on more bronzer
and I don't mean in an emotional sense
Whenever I sleep over I have to pack 3 tents
You ever hear anyone say,
"Such a nice winter breeze
It feels so good on my face"?
Now, Blizzard, PLEASE
Man, I bought this sunscreen
expecting a sick burn what a waste of cash
what a waste of verse
the only school you've ever attended
is for failures who can't hack it
better bundle up,
you're gonna need a jacket
Magic’s my game and it’s time that ya learnt
Ever notice they made a movie called Frozen, not Burnt?
I got that Narnia Ice Queen and Frosty the Snowman
You got uhhhhhh….Uncle Sam?
All the hotties wanna cuddle up with me no jokin’
While you lonely with lotion in the corner sunstrokin’
I get aroused when I hear a snowblower humming
Grab a beach towel, baby, cuz WINTER IS COMING
I've got beaches and picnics
you've got disease and kleenex
I'll work on my tan
while you go put on more blankets
I've got the sun "The real one"
not that fake winter crap
When your sun is shining
people just take a nap
When I say I can't make it,
cuz my dog is allergic (I don't even own a dog)
It's because at my pool parties
no one gets hypothermic
Whoa whoa, hold up a sec
You polar opposites better show respect
Don’t cop a fit while I’m poppin’ it
Cuz once I fall there's no stoppin’ it
Pumpkin king in the room
Panties droppin’ like leaves,
When I flash my harvest moon
You got Christmas? Just barely.
And besides who needs yuletide
When you’re messin’ with the scary
Best holiday there is
I got flora to admire
Raked in piles for the kids
Summer you smell like hot trash
You’re all beestings and sweaty...ass...stank
I’m the Goldilocks, keepin it just right daily
What am I thankful for? Turkey and gravy
Eat up, Winter. You’re lookin’ a little pale
All subpar rhymes from a sub-zero frail
Old man. Any other contenders?
I’ll give it a whirl
And a one and a two
My name is Spring and I’m here to say
Rappin’ is cool—
WINTER, SUMMER, AUTUMN
Nobody loves you, Spring!
