about

"Splendid!" is a happy song, an optimistic song which gives a message that even though life is going a bit badly, you can always yell "Splendid!" and be upbeat about things. It features a crowd of friends and followers, a cracking dance beat, and the soaring vocals of Jacqui Wicks.

lyrics

Here we are, a job well done
Live for now, what’s done is gone
Roof is mended, grass is cut,
Time for a cuppa - splendid!

This is nice, the shoes still fit,
Could afford that outfit if I wanted it.
The sun’s still shining even though it’s cold,
Could be worse but it’s splendid!

A silver lining's hidden in the clouds
Have faith, what goes around, comes around.

Call your friends, tell ‘em the news
The world’s OK with nothing left to lose
Lying in the gutter, looking at the stars
Picking it up - splendid!

Life is good, life is great
Have a drink or two with mates
Raise a glass to the friends we’ve got
Today it’s all - splendid!

A silver lining's hidden in the clouds
Have faith, what goes around, comes around.

G&T - splendid!
Dancing in the kitchen - splendid!
Yellow car - splendid!
Northern star - splendid!
A laugh with your mates - splendid!
Tricky first date - splendid!
Yorkshire tea - splendid!
You and me...?

Swimming upwards, bit by bit
I can haz burger but I ated it
Someone out there loves you lots
Keep on truckin’ - splendid!

Walk the line, walk it good
Don’t get caught up in the mud
Throw some shapes and walk through town
Ain’t it all just splendid!

A silver lining's hidden in the clouds
Have faith, what goes around, comes around.

about

The Bleeding Obvious Wakefield, UK

“A rabbit-hole of genres” is just one phrase used to describe the music of The Bleeding Obvious: the monicker of Yorkshire lass Jessica Rowbottom, whose music encompasses everything from pounding electronic club beats to orchestral soundscapes and soulful funk-pop. Collaborating with other singers and musicians the music is emotional, reflective, joyful, poppy, and frequently dark. ... more
