From the album Interstellar Pirate Queen

In cart Not available Out of stock

A song made almost entirely from notes on a lecture about how to write a commercially successful pop song. Make it happy. Keep it simple. Make it upbeat. Use lots of repetition. Make it a love song. Give it a danceable, hip beat. Tie it in with traditional old school hits. And make it something a twelve year old who has no musical training will warble along with in the shower. I tried.

Sometimes a spectacular failure is still worth experiencing!

Vocals (including various warblings and hoots) Marilyn Rucker, Gary Feist, Sharon Maner and Becky Cavanaugh

Bass: Gary Feist

Drums: Masumi Jones

Additonal Percussion: A.J. Montrose

Lyrics

My Happy Pop Song

Here’s the chorus of my happy pop song
Bubbling beautifully babbling right along
Upbeat danceable melody
Old school groove with a new world beat.

Repetition Repetition
Repetition Rinse, Repeat
Repetition Repetition
Old school groove with a new world beat.

I am happy and in love
From head to toe to dorsal fins
I am happy and in love
You fill me up with endorphins.

Repetition Repetition
Repetition Rinse, Repeat
Repetition Repetition
Old school groove with a new world beat.

Yes I’m happy and in love
Despite the dang Republicans
I am happy and in love
You fill me up with endorphins

Repetition Repetition
Repetition Rinse Repeat
Repetition Repetition
Old school groove with a new world beat.

Lift (Up a half step)

Repetition Repetition
Repetition Rinse Repeat
Repetition Repetition
Old school groove with new world beat.
