“Crybaby” from Amelia Moore Will Bring on the Waterworks
For anyone going through a break up, Amelia Moore’s “crybaby” is the perfect song to add to that “break up playlist.” It’s a great song to crank up when home alone and heartbroken, especially with the emotion coming through in Amelia’s bluesy vocals.
Amelia’s fluttery, yet powerful vocals in “crybaby” hook the listener in from the start. Her commitment to emotional transparency through her work shines especially with her vocals. The simple instrumental places the focus on Amelia’s voice, which brings more meaning throughout the song as she addresses her ex. Throughout the chorus, she can’t help but ask, “Do you like to make me cry baby / ‘Cause you do it all the time baby / When did God give you control of the rain.”
It makes the listener want to sing along in dramatic fashion, wailing along with Amelia as everyone recounts their heartbreak. Her descriptive lyrics make the listener feel Amelia’s heartbreak, with other stand out lyrics such as, “You’re so untouchable I’m such a fool/ To reach out while I circle the drain/ Caught your undertow/ Ever since you said hello/ Now it’s only goodbyes.”
Amelia Moore has been dubbed the “alt-pop princess” by publications like The Honey Pop, and has been featured in Billboard, DORK, and Notion. She recently finished touring with FLETCHER, in a sold-out, North American Tour. Amelia’s three other singles, “sweet and sour”, “vinegar”, and “moves”, received over ten million streams combined.
The Georgia native attributes her success to staying true to herself and her experiences, stating that,
“The songs I posted are just, ‘hey, let me know if you can relate to this extremely specific thing that just happened to me. I wrote a song, and here it is.’”
