The power of the title to persuade a listener to give the song a spin...is the last thing I hope to depend upon. It matters, of course...but I just don't think about that baited hook aspect of a song title so much as I think about the REAL name of the song, which is nearly always...

Stan, I like the tune . . . nice 50’s/60’s type throwback. The production is pretty solid, though for me the vocal is a bit too dramatic. You’ve got a nice tone, but in spots it seems you overreach a bit. Regardless, the feel of the song comes through really well, and I admi...

Luna, There’s a lot to work with here. Musically, I like the sound and what you have going on . . . though the lyrics strike me as a bit busy and in need of paring down—there are only so many syllables this melody will support, so word choice is paramount. Refining and focusi...
