Mr. Murrell, appreciate your review of "He Missed The Way". Lyrically it was a nod to Cole Porter and that era of songwriting. One of these days I'll do a new recording.......

Listened to a couple of your tunes, especially liked "My Love's Out There". The "Four Tops" harmonies were cool, always loved that style.

Junior, Here are my thoughts on Cryin' Eyes.

This is a hard review. I have many songs that I have written that I wrote for the death of a loved one, a lost love or a tragedy and they are simply a healing process for me. I will never change these songs to be more commercial as they mean too much to me in their current form. My sense is that is how this writer feels about this as it is a very heartfelt song that clearly has profound meaning to the author. In that context, it is a very powerful and meaningful song. My reviews are generally based around commercial viability, but the process of just giving input to something like this can be demeaning to it. Especially if you are trying to offer advice to improve it. This might be one of those songs that the writer will never tweak and I don't really fault her/him. So here goes.

Pros: Production is as good as a demo can get. Hats off to the producers of this track. I would not hesitate to hire this producer to work on my stuff. This is how it's supposed to be done. Tasteful players who know what "not to play." Good drummer, love her/his taste. In fact the entire band is very tasteful. Very good engineering on the front and back end. Good recording and a good mix. Instrumental intro is very good, short and catches the listener immediately. Talented producer who knows how to make a song sound great.

If this was my song, I would consider tweaking the following: I went back and forth on the lyrics, but sometimes simple lyrics are better. By 1:42, we have heard all the lyric content of the song and it is 3:20 in length. There is a lot of room for more syllables and expanding on the emotion of the writer. For example, the "ohs" at the beginning of the chorus could set up the "Cryin' Eyes" hook more effectively. My guess is the producer added these for effect or simply to fill the room.

The opening line, "Where were you 11th of September?" is very literal and pulls the song back a little. It sets up a story, when the feel and the hook is more about emotion. I might experiment with switching the order of the first and second verse. I think this line would be much more effective at the beginning of the second verse (if I was to keep the direct 911 reference.)

I am not sure the marriage is quite there between the verse and the chorus. Currently, the verse references 911 and the chorus talks about missing someone. If this was my lyric, I would make the verses more about "Cryin Eyes" and the person I am missing...and less about 911. It would also make the song more timeless.

With all this said, congrats on a sincere and genuine feeling that is conveyed in this song. I have never met the writer, but have very warm thoughts about her/him.

Hope this helps.

Roy

Roy ... Thank you very much for your honest comments, I could see it was an important subject for. I wanted to concentrate on the hope that carries on after something as sad as this. Thank you so very much for your comments sir.
