Scared of Happy - NEW English/Spanish Pop Song

Recommended Posts

Hi again! Back with another song, this time with an added twist! Decided to throw some Español into the mix and give it a little extra flare. This song falls a little somewhere between "dance" and "pop" in my opinion. Would love to hear feedback on the vocals, lyrics, overall! Thanks as always :)

 

Lyrics - “Scared of Happy”:

 

They say the good die young, you living every second like it's your last one. 

Did you forget how to feel alive? Ay-ay

And I could fly on jet planes, living all lavish sipping on champagne, but it ain't ever gonna be the same, without ya. 

 

Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you.

Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true.

Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be.

Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy.

 

Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy.

Scared of happy…

Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy.

 

Ay, baby sabes que puedes llorar en mi hombro.

Y que no tienes que escapar tus miedos.

Vivimos la vida loca, para para, lo necesitas.

Te digo que tu eres todo mi mundo, y que no puedo vivir sin ti.

I promise you don’t need to be, scared of happy, happy.

 

Let me be your lifeline, let me be the one that call at night.

If theres an ocean between us, Imma be your Christopher Columbus

 

Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you.

Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true.

Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be.

Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy.

 

Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy.

Scared of happy…

Tell me tell me why, Tell me, tell me why you’re scared of happy.

 

¿Me diría si necesitas ayuda?

Te prometo que va estar... mejor, mejor, mejor, mej-or

Te digo que tu eres mi mundo, y que no lo puedo vivir en sintigo.

I promise you don’t need to be, scared of happy, happy.

 

Oh god I miss you too, I’m coming after you.

Imma need you to believe me, believe it's true.

Imma gonna sweep you off your feet, and take you where you wanna be.

Baby won’t you tell me why you’re scared, scared of happy.

JPB has some sick beats but I think you really made this track your own, Bryce. Love the language mash up, it makes the song sound a lot interesting and fresh. 

 

I think you're a seriously talented topline writer and singer: GOOD topline writers are like unicorns - they're quite rare. 🦄

 

Keep up the great work!

The essential "hook" of being "scared of happy" is a powerful hook indeed, and you handle it well.  Your use of a higher-frequency "voice-like overdub" which appears early in the song (and which naturally leads to the first "swoosh!") is a very effective little trick that I will certainly remember.

 

The use of a Spanish-language section is very creative – more so, I am sure, to those who do not also understand this language – and I think that it was quite important that you ended these sections with an English-language take-out line (which did not require the listener to "hablo español," and thus to feel isolated if he doesn't).  The reference to "Christopher Columbus," who bridged an ocean between an English-speaking and what would in many areas become a Spanish-speaking world, is also clever.

 

There are definitely very strong commercial possibilities for this very well-executed song. [smiley=beerchug.gif]

What's not to love about this?  Awesome hook, lyrics, singing, arranging.  I even like that crying synth patch that should by all rights be annoying.  The percussion is infectious.  I'd be jealous if I was scared of happy. -Mark
