    I love puppets!

    I’ve composed scores for 20+ puppet theatre shows from weird and wonderful Avant Garde adult shows to super cute family shows like Julia ‘The Gruffalo’ Donaldson’s take on ‘The Owl and the Pussycat’.

    Each of them was a joy and pushed me to make new and different kinds of music.

    I wanted to share some of that music BUT… I do like a ‘proper’ song me, a ’singer-songwriter-y’ song. I just do. So I took some of the existing compositions and transformed them into new ‘proper’ songs and what belters they are!

    VERY proud to add this to my catalogue - enjoy!

about

Originally from Odd Doll's 'Whisker's First Winter' (2019) I took all the tinkly bells and not-quite-Christmassy things off and really liked this bare bones piano idea.

I think the 'everyday superhero' theme may have been a bit Pandemic Lockdown inspired - clapping for careers etc, and i think this should be in an advert. Its like one of those sad piano cover versions but it's actually the REAL version.

lyrics

Never really got superman
you always know he's going to win
every danger and every deal
is easy for a man of steel

calling the boring
the voiceless and the choice-less
underdogs against the odds
you are superheroes

Never been on a Odyssey
an epic journey to victory
but some days I'm lost at sea
and some of you are there with me

make way for the everyday
be they treading water or making waves
underdogs against the odds
you are superheroes

what does it take
to really save the day?
maybe the right word
said in the right way?

Ah Superman
don't you have a back up plan?
cos real life is kryptonite
and doesn't care if you think you're right

calling the boring
the voiceless and the choice-less
underdogs against the odds
you are superheroes
you are superheroes
