Quote:SteveI didn't quote your last post in this reply- I kept running out of disk space... Lighten up, my (not yet) friend... I hope you can tell from my posts that I was never serious & don't you think you are taking this bad review a little to hard? The only reason I even posted about my feedback was, albeit self-serving, that I noticed there was a lot on target in what I said-- the music needed energy to match the lyrics. I'm guilty of gloating there... I also mentioned what happened to me with a song for which I did lyrics and someone else did music- I got trashed.... So, I've been there.You know you have to have very thick skin in this business. And you have the writing and studio skills to start over on this one as well as the good fortune of working with the words from one of the best lyricists around these parts. So, take a deep breath and focus that energy on the next version! CaseyP.S. Just as an aside regarding the songs I sent you... [and yes there is some hindsight here, now that I saw your review]. Genre is irrelevant when it comes to matching the energy of lyrics and music. "Night" by Bruce and "Ju Ju Man" by Dave Edmunds were examples of the energy. In "Night", Bruce, as he often does, sings about racing cars, etc. "Ju Ju Man" is a country rocker with tons of energy. Every time I read "Donuts in the parking lot", I think of his "Falling in love again" chorus--similar phrases in terms of how they fit music. Download "Ju Ju Man" and visualize "Donuts" like that, I think... And yes, I don't know much about country music, no denying that at all! Umm, didn't you mean to post this in the 'Anything Less Than a 6 Thread?' Steve has made all this quite clear to me:1. I am not his friend, but I am good for a one night two hour critiquing marathon stand. I feel soooooooo used. 2. I don't have cajones....okay, some days I do. 3. If you are over the top NICE, you might be Canadian, but if you're a shit, you could be Algerian. If you're just a plain old jerk, well, you possibly could be from Paducah, Kentucky.4. He is not upset that he got a five for his melody, but I was damned postal when I got a 4 on my lyrics! But I had some Cheesecake Factory "Raspberry White Chocolate Truffle" last night to soothe myself, so I feel better. However, when I checked the scale this morning I weighed 6.4 pounds more than I did the day before, so I am postal again. I also can't get into that new thong bathing suit I purchased last week. Then again, there should be a law against that. 5. I need to get off this computer and write songs, but the Obsessive Compulsive Order Clinic is closed today.6. Objects in the mirror are smaller than they appear, especially when really bad TAXI screeners are driving the car.Over and out.
