"Why Do They Call It Falling In Love?" sounds like a pop/country hit to us

Hi K-onna, Thanks for a great review of Living in the Trees. Criticism is what's needed and it's appreciated!!! ~Jeff
Just reviewed your song "Little Spring Snow Leftovers" and liked it so much I wanted to add it to my playlist, but when I clicked on the song title, it took me to Monochromatic Recollections, not Little Spring Snow Leftovers. Did you take the song down? I'd love to add it to my playlist.
Hello!Thank you so much! (the song was private, but I changed it now) :)
Yay! Added it to my playlist!
Thank you very much for you nice review.
I just reviewed Flashback to Stranger Days - my apologies - I accidentally submitted it before I had completed all the ratings (so sorry!). I quite enjoyed it.
Hi, no worries, thanks for the review :)
I love your work. Love is Stronger is Heart wrenchingly wonderful. I would like to share with family and friends. Keep working on inspiring work like this one. Love, Betts
Hei Roy - is there a way to attach a photo to a single? I don't have any albums posted, but I do have artwork for my songs, and was looking for a way to attach it to the individual songs. It makes it easier for people I am referring to this site to easily find the song they are looking for...
Thanks for all you do!
K-onna, Thanks for your thoughts. We have had this on our to-do list and just haven't gotten to it, yet. I think it's a great idea and will bring it up in our next dev meeting.....Best, Roy
Hei Roy, would love it if you could take a minute and listen to my song, "Love Is Stronger". Any feedback would be appreciated!
K-onna, please find my thoughts on your song, Love Is Stronger, below. I just liked it on Facebook as well.
It is very difficult to review a song like this as it's so well written and produced, that I really have to dig to offer a suggestion to the writer. If I was sitting in a Nashville office, I would sign this song tomorrow in the current form as I believe it would find a home with a known artist quickly. With the said, here are some thoughts:
Great simple intro, very engaging. Great opening line, "He hadn't slept for days and they knew, he was thinkin' something through". The listener want s to know what is he thinkin' about. Great line, phrasing of it and a very good singers as well. A great internal rhyme with "uniform" and "Sunday morn". When I heard the line, "told him the decision that he made", I got chills. Incredible lyric writing. When a song has lyrics this strong with a singer who delivers like this guy, the listener doesn't even hear the production. This is very good songwriting.
As I listened to this line, "he sent up a silent prayer, asking that he might see home again" , I thought the singer was going to sing "he sent up a silent flare, asking God that he see home again." Either works. A great lyric is very predictable and memorable. This is.
Although I think this song could be cut tomorrow in its current form. I think with a stronger melodic hook, it could be a major hit. While I think the message is awesome, the chorus could be more distinctive with a more memorable payoff to it. Here are a couple of suggestions:
This line, "You know I hate war, but I love freedom more, but Love Is Stronger," feels like the writers struggled with marrying the melody and the lyric. At the same point and a couple of the preceding phrases in subsequent choruses, it felt the like the same struggle was going on.
Here are a couple of suggestions. Maybe the line, "I love freedom more," moves up the scale rather than down. It may give the title hook a stronger payoff. With that said, I am still not sure that the lyrics are as married to the melody as the verses are.
Another idea might be to repeat some of the lyrics earlier in the chorus, therefore giving the listener more to sing with the second time they hear it. Although the lyrics are good, maybe more of the same in chorus could be a better thing.
From a production perspective, this is a perfect demo. The opening strum is simple and charms the listener. Nothing needs to change here or throughout the production. Any suggestion I have would be personal preference and artistic in nature. The producer and engineer on this recording clearly know what they are doing. The singer is one of two things: A professional demo singer who has done thousands of demos or a natural talent who should be signed immediately.
I love this and with the permission of the writer, I will forward to some Nashville contacts immediately.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
Hei Roy, thank you so much for taking the time to listen and review my song! I appreciate all your kind remarks and your kind suggestions.
I often read your comments on others' songs while listening to them, with the objective of improving my own abilities. I've learned a lot and look forward to learning more.
You most definitely have my permission (and my gratitude) to forward my song to your Nashville contacts.
