Description
Third scene from the rock opera "The Avalanche" : Popin at the market place.

Background :

Popin is considered as someone rather odd. He is now at the market place because the market will be set up and he helps with cleaning and getting the place ready for the merchants. He talks about the people in Upper Valley. People are kind in general, but they never take him too seriously. But Popin doesn't really mind. He thinks that nothing is really worth taking seriously. He says he just talks about whatever comes to his mind.

Lyrics
I'M ME

[Popin]

They say I was born with a smile on my face
Not a worry in the world
They say when I took my first breath
It was just a little slower than anyone else

My long path of childhood was never easy
I met fools I would rather forget
But I'd like to think everyone cares for me
Cuz what you see is what you get

I am who I am
I won't be someone you want me to be
I won't try to be some one I'm not

I am me
I am me

You know you can count on me at any time
And if you ask, I'll share my dreams
I see the good in the people I meet
And hope that they see the good in me


I am who I am
I won't be someone you want me to be
I won't try to be some one I'm not

I am me

I love life and I think that life loves me
I make the best of everything you see
I love life and I think that life loves me

Nothing is missing.......

From get go like the sunny groove with the synth hooks. Nice singing...dig that touch of grit in the chorus. Cool jangly lead break. Nicely written & performed tune.

I'm Me
I like the opening combination of the acoustic guitar and the piano. The arrangement builds nicely and supports the positive vibe of the song. The chorus contrasts well with the verses and the bridge. Well done gang. Welcome to MJ. Regards, Peter.

Thank you so much Karen !
For your very kind support as always ! It's a great project and we're having a lot of fun.

Thank you for the compliments on the band name :-) I thought the easiest would be using the title of the project and as we're an internet based band, the term "superband" seems to be used, so I just took it for the sake of having a name :-)

Uplifting
Has a very sincere feel to it. Leaves you with a happy feeling and the songwriting, music and vocal performance are excellent. I like the synth accent that sounds like a flute. And with the organ, piano etc. you still manage to keep the mix light and airy. Reminded me of Jethro Tull's early stuff.

Rock Opera Rock On...
Oh, this is a terrific number. I loved it from the opening piano panoply and right into that wonderful and rapid guitar strumming. The composition itself has the definite feel of a theatre piece because of the narrative and the sort of free glow of the music itself. And Dick shows another aspect of his versatile vocal performance with great energy and a throaty call-out that is always right on the money. I love this Scene 3. Where's all the rest? (Humm...and did you consider some further orchestration? Ideas are popping into my head!!!) Nice job, you guys. I hope there will be more.
