WE GOT IT BAD FOR 'I GOT IT BAD'


Katy, Texas-raised singer-songwriter Melanie M Scheiber launched her new pop music project my friends call me Mel in April 2021. Releasing new music every few months into 2021 and beyond, mfcmM’s musical approach is inspired by wanting her songs to feel like a friend—music that encourages and empowers, creating a sanctuary of sound for the heavy and light moments of life.


I Got It Bad” Lyrics:


I got it bad

Dreamin’ the whole night through

And it’s drivin’ me mad

Wishin’ I was next to you

Baby we ain’t fad

We won’t fade with the times

Realest feeling I’ve ever had

And it scares me

But with you I’ll be alright


You know I’m independent

But I can’t keep hiding

That I’m feeling some kind of way

Really up in my emotion

You got my full attention

Let’s stay up talking way too late


I got it bad

Dreamin’ the whole night through

And it’s drivin’ me mad

Wishin’ I was next to you

Baby we ain’t fad

We won’t fade with the times

Realest feeling I’ve ever had

And it scares me

But with you I’ll be alright


Something ‘bout you is different

You soften my edges

And see a future I’ve never seen before

‘Cause I’ve been a skeptic

But you made me have faith again

The sweetest love I’ve been hoping for

You’re everything I want and more


I got it bad

Dreamin’ the whole night through

And it’s drivin’ me mad

Wishin’ I was next to you

Baby we ain’t fad

We won’t fade with the times

Realest feeling I’ve ever had

And it scares me

But with you I’ll be alright


It’s that point of the night

Don’t wanna say goodbye

Think that I could spend

The whole night talkin’ to you

It really scares me to say

That I’ve never felt this way

Think that I could spend

Forever lovin’ you


I got it bad

Dreamin’ the whole night through

And it’s drivin’ me mad

Wishin’ I was next to you

Baby we ain’t fad

We won’t fade with the times

Realest feeling I’ve ever had

And it scares me

But with you I’ll be alright

Realest feeling I’ve ever had

And with you I’ll be alright

What are your favorite lyrics from your latest single? “‘Cause I’ve been a skeptic but you made me have faith again” -this lyric is special because it sums up how my husband’s love for me healed me from past hurts in relationships allowing me to really believe in love again. What kind of pull did you feel about making the single? I typically write a lot of break up songs or ones about heavier topics but I felt inspired to create a love song for my husband for our 5 year wedding anniversary! Are all your writing sessions collaborative or do you go off on your own? Do you have a preference? Mostly collaborative but since I write with people via FaceTime or Zoom, I often come in with a good chunk of the song already realized and then have another person help me finish and rework it. Do you ever compare the work you bring to the table? I often compare it to other songs I’m currently writing or released. Not in negative way, but to make sure I’m putting out music I’m passionate and excited about. I sometimes bring comparison in to see how it would vibe on a playlist of other songs with similar energies, just to see how that would flow but I generally try to stay away from comparison with songs outside of ones I’ve written. What is standard practice when it comes to if the song is really finished? I exhaust every option of making it better and ask questions like “is there better way that could’ve been said?”, “could people easily identify the heart of the song?”, “does this inspire me to continue writing?“, and then I go listen to other songs I like with a similar vibe then come back to the it and see if the energy still feels right. THEN I see if it gets stuck in my head - that’s a telling sign I created something I love if I wanna sing it all the time! What was the goal for making the latest track? The lyrical content goal was simple: show some love to my husband, as well as create a mid-tempo song that could be used at a wedding by other listeners. Another goal of mine was to have a song that showcased my vocal abilities! Challenges to the new music that no one would know about? Being an independent artist is hard in general, but I am also a new mom which has its own challenges. Making time for my music though makes me a better mom though I’ve learned! The song is also basically at the top and bottom of my range - nothing like a good vocal challenge! Favorite memory in the making of this music? Slow dancing with my husband to the song :) Is there anything off the table when it comes to bringing yourselves into your music? I often am inspired by other people’s stories but if there was anything too personal, I’d make sure they knew and got approval to share. Leave us on a high note! And share some good news! I’m building connections with musicians locally in O’ahu and around the world. I’m excited to see where these new collaborations will go!! Socials PLEASE:
