Liner Notes

Skirmish theme: "SICK"

This was fun! I took an hour for the lyrics, then 45 minutes for the demo. Thanks @corinnecurcio for the prompt!

Lyrics

When I look into your eyes
I feel a fever start to rise
Which leads me to hypothesize
I think you make me sick

When you say you like my coat
I feel a frog inside my throat
Since distance is the antidote
I think you make me sick

Why do I not feel at ease?
When you're near, my sight grows hazy
Is it some obscure disease?
Or am I going crazy?

Even at your gentlest touch
I feel my heartbeat start to rush
I must not like you very much
I think you make me sick

This is a delightful little showtune, the harmonies are brilliant. Very clever lyrics delivered with such jaunty energy that you can't help but smile and bop to the beat.

Great catchy song.i love the brevity of it. Super catchy and funny lyrics. Nice.

Love the lyrics!! Really catchy and fun! Good job!

Fantastic. Love your upbeat take on brushing someone off. You manage to mix showtunes and Saturday Morning Cartoons. I like the way you sing this, as well as all the great rhymes. Great skirmish.

I was just browsing the "silly" tag for some reason :). This is fun! A very jolly way to get your point across and I love the rhyming. Very catchy.

Another quality track made in such a short time! The harmonies are so awesome here and make the song feel so full. Really great melody and lyrics also.

So much fun! I can't believe you wrote these lyrics in 15 minutes! This sounds so old school and cool. I clearly hear some upbeat swing with a double bass and trumpets.

Ha!!!! this is fantastic! I can see it on Broadway, choreography and all-- hilarious, such a creative take on it all, and the arrangement and vocal performance is just perfect for this lyric! well done!

Oh this is So Sick (which I believe meant Great at one time many years ago).
Those "Ooo's" sound lovely and your lead vocal sounds cool up against that up-tempo drum track.
Nice quick ditty.

Oh this is really wonderful - a great show tune/ musical feel. Fabulous hook and lyric. Your delivery is gorgeous. I love the uptempo music.

This is really, really good! Very contemporary sounding, even though in a way it could come from a 1940's film or something like that. Nice vocals, and I love the up-tempo rhythm.

Great blend of an old style song with a modern beat. Good work quickly getting the job done.

Revulsion, pure and simple, but very catchy tune and Vox.

Lol This is great. Made me laugh. Good singing, good background music and really dig the words. Yes, we all have moments like this with someone.

[avatar]

You hooked me with that opening verse and the music! Great vocal and harmonies!

[avatar]

This was a trip back in time with those vocals. Love your harmonies. Cute lyric.

[avatar]

Ha, what a sweet song! Great!

This sounds like a welcome sickness. Your song made me grin. Thank you.
