Nice song Everett! I agree with you for the most part, at least where commercial radio is concerned. Most of it is pretty boring, lowest common denominator stuff. However, for years now I've been listening pretty exclusively to NPR, or other public radio station like WXPN out ...

Well, For the record. Most Labels want Artists that write their own songs. That way the Label doesn't have to pay the full mechanical rate for outside songs and rarely even pay the Artist the full rate. There was, and maybe still is something called the Composition Clause that ...

Everett, What they are telling you without telling you is that they are no longer interested in being in the CD business unless you are moving mass numbers of units. The economics simply do not work storing CD's that do not turn over regularly (usually anything under 10 times ...

Thanks as always Martin and Vic. Great comments! When I redo the vocals, I'll hold back on going up on "misery" in the second verse and keep it more subdued. My instincts originally was to make the second verse a little different from the first, but I hear and agree ...

Mike, I think this has potential within its genre. There's some compelling guitar work that can attract the ear. For me, I'd like to see a few more breaks and changes in the melody, but I confess this isn't in my sweet spot musically--so you will likely know better than I. Wo...

Actually, I would say the tune reminds me of a Beatles opening, but I'll go with ELO too (I mean, didn't the Beatles have quite the influence on Jeff Lynne?). I would love to see some lyrics put to the rest of the song--seems too good not to take advantage of that melody and sou...

Very folky, nice guitar, acoustic rhythm. Poetic lyrics that add to the mood. In my humble opinion, I would say maybe a little too ambitious on the vocals. I mean, your voice is beautiful, but maybe hold back early and open up a little later in the tune--think it may add some v...

A large percentage of the hip-hop community has done quite well using loops with no “real” musicians. Same thing with techno. I found it funny that The Who’s “Who are You” was used as an example of what BIAB can’t do. The songs intro riff is a synth “playing itself”. The band the...

I would venture to disagree here. Life got a more serious as we got older, especially once the Reagan years hit and the accompanying "Creed of Greed" took the helm. Still very much with us today. Nevertheless, I am sure there are so many of us who live through this time...
