I was so pleased when I drew Copperhead this secret mixter. I’ve worked with Greg before and he has an amazing and varied back catalog.
The more and more I listened through the harder it got, until I found something gathering dust that I started in 2012.

The song is called Face in the Crowd.
I’d completely forgotten about this one.

Against Copperhead’s great backing, Sassygal wrote the vocal melody and then I wrote the lyrics against it, trying to get into a teenagers head. (ha!)
We then convinced Maddy (my step daughter then aged 14) to go all Miley Cyrus on it. She did this vocal in one take against Sassy’s guide track.
I’m still blown away by her tone and scared shitless that she now sounds even better now she’s 18.

Anyway, 14 year old lead singer, ballad at 132BPM, ageing songwriter dad trying to write words for a teenage girl. Finishing the project in a different DAW four years on. What could possibly go wrong???

Thanks Copperhead !

Face in The Crowd

Seen you down there lately..
window shopping maybe?
Wait for someone else to catch your eye.
People watching crazy
find a girl that maybe
love you half as much the way I do?

Slowly my heart unwinds…

Keep within myself I found
cry myself to sleep out loud
must be better if you don’t see me like this right now
Playing strong when your around
tell my friends I’m much too proud
to take you back again
and be another face (another face) in the crowd.

Think about you daily
and who your with now maybe?
Hate to think what you’ve been telling her
Bet she thinks I’m crazy!
Facebook stalker maybe?
time to tweet the world I’m over you…
but slowly my heart unwinds..

Keep within myself I found
cry myself to sleep out loud
it must be better if you don’t see me like this right now
Playing strong when your around
tell my friends I’m much too proud
to take you back again
and be another face (another face) in the crowd.

Repeat

Editorial pick

Did Miley Cyrus stop by ccMixter? Or is that Taylor Swift? Nopers! This new POP HIT is sung by Scomberella with the vocal melody by Sassygal, and lyrics and production by Scomber. It’s all part of a Secret Mixter mix of Copperhead’s ultra-cool backing track.
