Crowd Pleaser is country rock retro futurism by Swamp Music Players

Crowd Pleaser ⛽☢ country rock "retro futurism" by Swamp Music Players.
Featuring and co-written by Virginia Americana artist Joseph Gearheart. The Swamp Music Players are an international collective of artists with a passion for swamp music and Cosmic Americana. 'Crowd Pleaser' is so retro it's now!

Special guest on backing vox, Hollywood's "Sugar Parks". Produced and mixed by Wynn Gogol. Mastered at 1 Ton Studio.

Transistorized Southern Roots Rock with authentic plate-reverb, retro tech synth inspired by John Carpenter and customized effects.'Crowd Pleaser' is a fun retro track of Swamp Rock and Cosmic Americana. The song was inspired bythe literature of Hunter S. Thompson and Philip K. Dick as well as mirroring of events between the 1970s and current day. The new cold war, the rise of populism and the cry for freedom. We live in interesting times.

LYRICS for 'Crowd Pleaser'

Looky now baby see the rockets in the sky
Somewhere there’s someone steady
Staring upwards as they die
Some folks is frownin’, doubtin’,
But we never play around
Spike a holy ball of fire
From the heavens to the ground

They’re all looking for a crowd pleaser
Rockets in the sky
A crowd pleaser
Lit up like the fourth of July

Beautiful and deadly like a devil femme-fatale
Got people cross all nations screaming
“Can you hear us now?”
No stranger propaganda
We’re all suckers for a show
Grab a weapon at the door
And leave behind your moral code

Yes we’re all looking or a crowd pleaser
Rockets in the sky
A crowd pleaser
Lit up like the fourth of July

Yes the waves have all crested
And we're all in a daze
We’re all down in the valley
Just living through the haze
Seem’s history has ended
Time to cash in those chips
But you ain’t seen nothing yet
That fuse has just been lit

It’s a roadrunner, air-grabber
Out on a cruse
A workin’ man, ridge runner
Burnin’ the blue
She mah kissing’ cousin, wild hearted
But her aim is true
Top up, window flashing
My babies howling at the moon

Yes we’re looking for a crowd pleaser
Rockets in the sky
A crowd pleaser
Lit up like the Fourth of July

Looky now baby see them lights up in the sky
Looky now baby see them rockets in the sky
