Captain Corona

Just a little song about the 'rona, in a genre I like to call Bad Pop. Thanks to the lovely Abby for writing most of the lyrics for me.

This started out as an experiment with FL Studio's new Flex "synthesizer" (basically just presets). I don't love it, but it's fun to browse all the sounds and mess around.

Haha, this is awesome dude.  This is the most feel good sounding thing I've heard on this topic yet.  Bad Pop is fucking sweet.

HelloGoobye vibes on this. Outstanding. I like this/10 from Amelia.

This is the best possible response to a global pandemic.  Catchy and fun pop music.  Something about the way you sang the first Corona reminded me of My Sharona, but this was miles better than some shitty My Sharona/My Corona parody would be.

Well done! Super catchy, sounds super good, nice mix.

Wow this is awesome.  Great lyrics.  Catchy af.  Great production.  Can't ask for more in a happy, poppy song about a global pandemic.

man the vocals in this are just so catchy and perfect

I'd make a joke how it's catchy and infectious, but others already have. It's a solid song and the vocals are done really well.

Ha ha... beautiful. It's like the "Electric Avenue" of viral outbreak.  Funny lyrics, great vocal production.  Great ending!  I hear a Sparks influence. Are you familiar with their music? They do a lot of very clever, twisted pop.

They're an acquired taste to be sure, but if you get past the falsetto opera style vocals, they're quite amazing.  And for a pop / synth band, they have influenced a number of metal bands that have covered there tracks.
