Mr​.​Happy Feet (Single)

about

"Mr. Happy Feet" is Miserable Man new single.

The song is infused with old Jamaican Ska and Swing Jazz flavours, yet respecting the classic Pop formula with emphasis on simple structure, upbeat tempo and catchy chorus.
The style of both song and music video is inspired by the glorious days of the late 50's and early 60's, when dancing moves, dress code and hairstyle were key.

For the shooting of the video some Swing dancers were involved and the location exudes nostalgia with hints of the school party from "Back To The Future", a favourite movie from the artist's childhood.

The production follows the usual Miserable Man approach, relying on live take in the studio, simple mic techniques to capture the sound in the most organic way, with lots of natural room sound and very little post production.

A 3 tracks E.P. will follow the single release shortly.

lyrics

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet!

I know they like them boogie,
i know they like Rocksteady too
but once they're feeling groovy,
there is nothing i can do to keep'em still!

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, singing sweet melodies
let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, he's cheering up the street.

They wanna dance with Susie,
they wanna dance with Marilou,
but once they're feeling groovy,
there is nothing i can do to keep'em still!

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, singing sweet melodies
let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, he's cheering up the street.

I know they like them boogie,
i know they like Rocksteady too
but once they're feeling groovy,
there is nothing i can do to keep'em still!

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, singing sweet melodies
let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, he's cheering up the street.

Let me introduce you Mr.Happy Feet, he's cheering up the street.
