Absolutely irresistible with an inspired pairing of Scomberella and Ophelia. Fabulous! (Definitely goes on the “Smiley Songs” playlist!)

Cutest and best song I’ve heard in days; perhaps months. I love little girls who recite poetry, swing beats, and I also cry in the park.

Brilliant! Love the shifty swing groove punctuated by the muted brass.
I’m now certain I’ll get a visit from social services for leaving little S’rella out in the alley confessing to the local bum while I’m inside the Jazz club knockn back the single malt.
Thanks dood!

simply the sweetest, most uplifting track on the web. could this be the advance release from Scomberella’s upcoming c.d., ‘365 things i love/hate’?
made my morning. p

This is magical, MCJIB. A mix that’s a total delight that’ll go on cheering one up with repeated listenings. However, I do worry about that poor unicorn being tied up in the back yard.

Incidentally, I heard that little comment on the Cool Music Show and you’re just pushing your luck. You will be sorry. My flight’s all booked …

There may be a lot of mixes coming from this irresistible vocal offering, and there may be some that are as good, but I doubt there will be any better.

Wow - this works on several levels. The adorable/cute being the more obvious. However, your remix adds more.

By setting Scomerella’s spoken word into a decidedly grown-up music setting, you have given them (much deserved) respect. Isn’t she not only speaking for herself or her generation, but in some way even for many of us so called grownups?

I also like how you have mirrored the meandering thoughts with an equally meandering arrangement, creating a cohesiveness of concept, which adds to the profoundness of the result.

Cute AND deep? I think my head’s about to explode… :-)

actually, you’re pretty perceptive. one of the things i was trying to do was highlight some of her lines with the drum dropouts. and used the horn stabs to punctuate what she was saying. the rhodes track was cool and subtle and really didn’t need anything to be done with it, which is why i used it as the foundation. so like you said, it translates well to a cool jazz spoken word arrangement, and i found myself chuckling a couple times when she’d say something (i hate flys but i love butterflys) and i thought “how true” as it still relates. :)

not to take anything away from the original with dokashiteru’s arrangement, which is really great.
