Hi Tom...Thank you for asking me to review your new song `Your the one for me' I think its a nice easy go song and found myself soon singing along with the chorus however I think that the production is a little flat and I think this could be improved by the addition of some interesting keyboard or guitar fills here and there and also its crying out for some extra vocal parts especially between the chorus lines....dont get me wrong its still a very nice song and well done.
Thanks Derek for the comments. I appreciate you taking the time. Will think on what you have said and maybe change one or two things. Thanks again.
Hi Tom...Many thanks for your review of my song `Let it fly' which is a few years old now.
Ive taken note of your comments....Good luck with your music mate.
Hi Dave...Many thanks for your kind words and professional review of my song `Anne Boleyn ( And it came to be ) It took quite a long time to make, the problem is I dont actualy know what to do with it....Any ideas ?
Hi Derek, the time taken was well worth it! Ideas for your track? An Anne Boleyn musical written with this track as a recurring theme? A whole album of like minded gold nuggets based on historical characters? I am sure there will be other songwriters on this site, who can help in putting a 'compilation' album up on BJ if it is too big a task for one man? Set the challenge. Has there been such a thing done here before? Artistically it would bring a few songwriters together and be a solid project for the new year? I was once given permission to record 'Joan of Arc' by OMD themselves, (I know the singer/songwriter), that theme always fascinated me.
Kind regards, Dave
Many thanks for your kind and professional review of my song `Keep your hands off my woman' I will take on board your comments....Good luck to you and your music.
Many thanks Bryan for a great review of my song `Coz I'm 17 ' I'm glad you liked it ...its a big favourite back here amongst my crowd....good luck to you mate.
Many thanks for your kind and helpful review of my song Eleven Eleven...I wish you all the best with your own material.
Many thanks lads for your kind review, I shall listen to your songs over the next couple of days....Ive checked out your band information and its looking good....The best of luck to you all.
Derek, thanks for your kind and wonderful review of my song: LET MY LOVE IN-3-. Much success to you.
Your very welcome and good luck
Hi Des....many thanks for a professional review. I will listen to yours over the next day or two...Cheers mate and good luck.
no probs derek, i try to give a good review to evey song i review...
Thank you so much for your generous review of 'The Prayer'. I genuinely enjoyed listening to some of your work. Your tunes have a very nice flow, good lyrics..substance you know.
Best of luck to you.
Derek, thanks for your review of my song: TOO SOON TO LOVE AGAIN-2-. I'm the lyricist. I agree with you that it needs another instrument, but that's expensive to do. I didn't quite agree with you what you said about the lyrics, but thanks anyway.
Hi Reggie...many thanks for a thorough and professional opionion however I may not do anymore to this one...its not a favorite of mine....I'm a songwriter/ producer and I dont think my voice did it any justice....I think its that and that alone that put it into a demo bracket. Stay lucky and all the best mate.
Hi Derek, thank you for your review of the ''Loop''. It started out as an exercise for my pupils a few years ago and developed into what it is now. I take on board that the mix needs looking at and will make the relevant changes. All the best with your own music.
Hi Dave...Many thanks for your review of my song `Let it fly' its actually a few years old now..It was recorded entirely on a keyboard (with the exception of the vocal ) It was one of those situations where I was doing a demonstration with a view to selling it...I stumbled on this sequence and it just evolved...I have noted your very professional comments in which I'm grateful however I think you'll agree that the primitive recording technique gave a pretty good result. I personaly love the track however its not everyone's favourite. Just for the record I now work on cuebase and use a mixture of real instruments and sampled sounds. Good luck with your own work.
I understand your process, yes many time (for me) an intended song idea morphs into something other than its original inspiration. I'm glad to see that someone else suffers the same side effects. I also use Cubase, it's pretty great huh? Good luck to you too... Dave
Hi Derek, thank so much for your kind review of my song "Superhuman." That was so interesting to me that you commented that it sounded dated, as I actually just had the keyboard tracks redone to get rid of the retro sounds and add cooler synth. After all, I'm only 17 - no way do I want to sound dated lol!! Thanks again:) ~Amanda~
Thanks for the review...I guess you cant please everyone.
Hi Sylvia....Ive just noticed that without realizing Ive reviewed your songs twice before and given you high marks....There's something about you I like
Derek, that's the nicest thing anyone has told me on Broadjam. Really, you made me feel good. Thanks. I hope we both have luck with our songs.
Derek, thanks so much for your wonderful, kind review of my song: LET MY LOVE IN-4-. I'm the lyricist, and no, I'm not signed. Much luck with your music.
Hi Cynthia Many thanks for the kind review of my song `Sweet Tralee'...I'm looking forward to hearing some of your songs.
It is so interesting reading reviews of one's songs. I'm glad you like my bouncy happy song "Looking for a Girl." Thanks! It's been used in two weddings where the husband finally settled on one girl. If you want really really original, check out my "Dance with Lightning." It will at least surely give you a laugh.
Derek, I thank you for your review of lost angel. I also want to thank you for your time & effort that you put in. Lost Angel is no.1 on the UK Broadjam chart & on the top10 of 3 other charts. Song is doing well & it might get a cut as it's under consideration by record placement...
thanks for reviewing my song "When she holds my hand" and for the kind comments,
Tony from nz
Derek, thanks forthe great review of my song: LET MY LOVE IN-2-. I added drums in LET MY LOVE IN-3. I'm the lyricist. Thanks. again. Sylvia
Hi Robert Many thanks for your song review...I gave your stuff a listen, Its music with a million applications...I can hear it in the cop program...I can hear it in the car chase etc etc .... Its crisp and very well played and produced....Good luck with them.
Thanks Derek. As you know I really liked your song "You Lie to Me." Great movement in there. Cleverly constructed as well.
Hi Tom...Many thanks for reviewing my song `You lie to me' I listened to a couple of your songs and absolutely loved `Could this be the last time' Well writen, Well produced and a great fresh vocal...excellent lyrics....well done and good luck
Hey man, just listened to your song "Eleven Eleven."
I saw in the discription, it said something about the numbers 11,11, well my family is always seeing those numbers on clocks, lisence plates, and all of that. Really nice lyrics and I relate. :)
Lil Puf.....A great name and many thanks for reviewing my song `Let it fly' I love your material, i think its well done and very original...well done
Thanks man. Good luck with your music.
And btw, i was actually debating on whether to use that name or not, glad you like it. :)
I think its really unusual and very memorable, its the name of a future star...I can feel it.
Hi Mark....Thanks for the review of my song `Coz I'm 17' Gave a listen to some of yours...I liked Rivers end very much however I think the lyrics could have been a bit clearer, You've got a great deep sound quility to your voice. Good luck mate

hey derek--my song--christmas blues--thanks for the nice review--cheers--joe.
Thank you for your review of 'A Song Saved My Life'. It made me feel good to have someone enjoy my music and I wish you success and maybe some money for writing songs....now that would be my wish for all songwriters.
Ive just played it again Rob and I like it even more.
