No Hard Feelings

Liner Notes

I'm a fan of @splittybooms and asked to collaborate on a track together this 5090. I got this totally solid #throwback #80's track to play with. How much fun to put some lyrics and a few sound effects over this! Was totally channelling my inner Paula and Prince!

Lyrics

'No Hard Feelings'
2022 Georgie Cooper & Splittybooms

Verse
I never quite figured you out
What made you tick
What you were all about
I tried to be the perfect girl
Always fell short
And we fell out somehow

Now you’ve got a new girl
And I heard she’s movin’ in
For you that is a big step
I felt the old scars again

Chorus
No hard feelings
If you love her more than you ever could love me
No hard feelings
If she means more to you than I could ever be
Sure it stings a little and it hurts a lot but somewhere down the line I’ll be fine

Verse
Sometimes it seemed to work
But it was me
Who was shovelling dirt
All the efforts that I made
I did with care
But they went to waste

Now you’ve got a new toy
And I heard she’s lots of fun
For you that’s a big deal
I felt the old scars again

Chorus
No hard feelings
If you love her more than you ever could love me
No hard feelings
If she means more to you than I could ever be
Sure it stings a little and it hurts a little but somewhere down the line
I’ll be fine

This has the 80s vibe but also feels decidedly modern in its vibe (possibly just because I know the two musical geniuses behind it). I would crank the radio if this came on. Just sayin'.

I cannot express how impressive this recording is. It brought to mind so many good feelings and I love it when great artists come together like this and produce such high-quality music. Of course, I'm going to listen a few more times and allow myself to love on it some more and at the same time be green with envy (in a good way) because of how well this turned out.

Already listened three times…This is penetrating. Powerful vocals on top of Splitty’s booms and sample genius. I’m in the club…fan club that is. Wonderful. Love the attitude. More please…

I was doing a crossword puzzle with my girlfriend the other night and she was doing BRILLIANTLY and I said, semi-seriously, "STOP IT! You're SCARING me!!" That's how I feel about listening to Georgie's singing with each and every song this 50/90 season. "Scaring" in a good way, of course. Just so, so terrific. @splittybooms , great job on the collaboration! Wonderful job, you two!

I held off on sending this to Georgie for like a month out of intimidation and other assorted silliness.
Felt it wasn't "good" enough.
So glad I went ahead.
I was upfront that I needed help with various things and she came through...I would say she blew my mind, but I already knew anything sent to her would come out golden. Mind was still blown, though lol
She sent me the draft with her vocals on it and I just shook my head and smiled.
@jibbidy34's vocal style here has so much attitude; even though she's the one saying "no hard feelings", I get the feeling that the other party is feeling like crap cause of how triumphant she's delivering these lines. Its like she's saying YOU'RE the one that missed out without really saying it.
And that style she brought here sounds SO good against the music (not trying toot my own horn), but she really makes this song what it is. That 90s sass and delivery is strong here and it hits my ears all kinds of correct. Could not have asked for anything better than this.
And she filled the track up with a particular squarey-sawy toothy synth sound that I LOVE, along with that wompy 90s bass! I'm hearing a riser in here and that record scratch adds so much texture, and just that simple crash cymbal you added gives so much more dynamic space to the entire track's end section. I'm probably missing stuff that you added, too, even though I'm on like my 5th listen lol
No...I'M the fan of YOU. Thank you SO much for this, it means a lot and I love this.

Expertly put together by two artists and producers at the top of their game and a hot, immediate infusion of aural Hitsville joy!

Loving the way the hook overlaps with the response lines. That’s really clever, and the coda where you just keep it coming is great fun! The response lines are very Prince, niiiice. Loads of wonderful little sonic details going on, love the little record scratches, the big synths after the first chorus, and the beat (particularly that snare) is awesome. Also love the supplementary vocals that echo and riff off the main lyrics. Super work both 🔥🔥🔥
