You're much welcome, Delta. "Parcel of Rouges" wowed me. That is beautiful work. I love the old Celtic traditional songs as well. O'Carolan was a great composer and there were several others that Kim Robertson, the harpist, interpreted so beautifully. I'm glad I got her first five albums before they went out of print. I'll look for more of your originals from some time ago.

Thank you for a thorough and kind review of "Storm Of Days". May be the classiest comments i have ever received on a song review. (i cringe opening a new review never knowing what's coming) So thanks for the professionalism. That song has been licensed a few places, most notably in the "Walking Dead" TV series on AMC. Thank again.

Hi, Steve. You're very much welcome! I must drop by to listen to some more of your tunes. Your placements are a testament to the terrific songwriter that you are. I know what you mean by cringing at new reviews and wondering what they hold. I've seen several wild ones! Thank you for the friend request that I gladly accepted. I see you're from Thunder Bay. I love the wooded region all the way from Lake of the Woods all through the great lakes. I saw it way back when it was Port Arthur and Fort William (if I remember correctly). I'll be sure to drop by your page again soon. John

Hi, buddy! Well, I wouldn't have suspected a goofy song like "You're the Hole in my Doughnut if you Leave" would garner extra stars but Lora and I sure had fun writing it while immersed in Chinese food and wine. I do much appreciate it since you've come along to get a chuckle out of it. That brings it up to four members who have starred it. Next time Lora and I go out to Dunkin Donuts, I'll tell her we must get four extra doughnuts to celebrate. Munch on, dude! Novelty songs are just fun as heck! Anyone reading this now MUST check out your songs, "Cookie Cutter Blonde" and "Bozo's Clown Parade." John

Hi, Bob. I listened to Blues 2 and 3. The spirited 2 with Latin influences is definitely engaging. Blues 3 is more relaxed, somber, and your guitar playing sounds a lot like Mark Knopfler, which is enviable, even if it is a homage to Santana who I associate with having a slight wail to the strings. But that's just personal bias. I'd be thrilled if I could play like you after all these decades but I'm happy to be able to play well enough just to compose! John

Hi John,
Thanks as always for the great feedback you provide, this time for Blue Two. I'm flattered with regard to my guitar playing, it seems to be holding out better than my singing voice!! I do still very much enjoy getting the old Strat out and I've recently bought a NU-X practice amp that's about the size of a small smart speaker!! Not only is it a great sounding (and loud) gizmo, it comes with a wifi jackplug for the guitar which connects to the guitar to the amp without wires and without latency.
Thanks again for your comments.
Cheers for now,
Bob
BTW Have uploaded a better version of Blue Two, more accurate guitar bends etc.



Hi John... I hope all is going well your way,

I just wanted to say thanks so much for the 5-star rating of my song "The Blend"!

It's very much appreciated!!

Be well,
Frank

Hi, Frank. Since I'm a mini-member, sometimes the review doesn't show up, but I'll double-check. It's a five-star across the board. The melody is always first and foremost to me, and it's a great arrangement. The saxophone is the highlight of all the instruments. Of course, you're much welcome. I have another thought that's really minor but I always have to mull over stuff like that because it's always a personal taste thing. To me there's a line that every creative piece reaches where it's just right, does what it's supposed to do, perfection...and everything past that line is nothing but personal taste and bias, and a lot of people who review on BJ really get nitpicky and stuck past that line!

John you are SO spot-on with the rating being weighted by personal preferences. I know that IO often have to pause before putting that final score down to do my best to be objective and also to give proper "weight" to certain elements of a song. Often times an amazing song may be hindered (and "penalized") due to a less than perfect vocalist, and/or a personal production choice.

As always, I appreciate the way you approach rating music/songs. It truly is an art/talent in itself... and you have it.

Frank

Thank you, Frank! I think one of the toughest parts of reviewing is that if there's something that is blatantly a problem with a song, it is one of those rare times I may give a "3." But if I do that, then the ball is in my court and I'd better damn well have a very good and reasonable solution! That is only if there really is a problem with the base tune that the whole song is based on, or if the words don't convey the feeling of the tune, or if the words are just plain banal. If I would have to give a "2," I may want to skip it!
On to another subject...don't you just love it when you come up with a tune that you know is a hit? When you start recording it, you just know it's going to go over like wildfire! "Sunday She Knows" had to be one of those!
Then there are the ones that I was just blown away by. I thought for sure when I heard Bob Bentley's "Back to a Younger Me," that classic would be an instant #1 Earth on BJ's ultra-fickle charts. When it didn't, I wondered what's wrong with everybody? Jeana's "Bright Skies Ahead," Warren's "Graveyard Shift," and Robert Quigley's "The Place that We Know" were a few others that just smacked me hard with that feeling of oh my god, this is stunningly GREAT. "Sunday She Knows" was one that smacked me, too, with the feeling of "this is a great songwriter!" Ah, just a few thoughts just to wander about with! This coming from someone who tries to be equal with everyone I admire.

I like those songs that come to me with the chorus first, and especially those that pop up quickly. "Rivers that Flow" has your very good gift of writing a lilting melody, pleasant and easy to follow...something of a foot tapper, too. One of my best tunes, "Far From Home," came to me within about three minutes. I almost always get the tune first, then sometimes I have try to find out what the tune feels like, for it to give me its title so I can write the words.

Thanks for the listen and the stars John. Rivers That Flow is a bit of a filler, I like it but it's not one of my best for sure. Had a relisten to Far From Home, it's a fine song with great lyrics, well performed.

True, "Rivers that Flow" is not near the heights of "Rolling On" and the classic "Back to a Younger Me," however, it is still good and it would be among the better and best songs for a lot of Broadjam members. Even with "Rivers that Flow," you're careful with the construction of a tune and fitting the lyrics to the mood of the song. Thank you for the relisten of "Far From Home." I've always been happy with that song for its melody and for being a very good story. I think these days it doesn't fare out as well over here because lyrically it is a vulnerable song, but that's what I often write. The trend now seems to be for more cavalier and tough lyrics ever since rap and the new style of country (can we really call it country?...I think it's more pop with a twang) took over.

Hi, Frank! What a nice surprise to see you visiting my page. I was just listening to some more of yours. You really know how to come up with a catchy, hooky chorus. 'Don't get caught in the rain' is a perfect marriage to that chorus in "It's Your Attitude." Thank you for the appreciative stars on "Down East in a Harbor Town." I'm a couple days off of responding because I had to switch medications and adjust thanks to the greediness of the insurance companies and the pharmaceuticals! John

Thank you so very much for the 5 stars on "It's Your Attitude". That was a really fun one to write; all sorts of little fun analogies and contradictory observations peppered throughout that one.

I hope your health is good and that you're staying well.

I look forward to listening to more of your music!

Hi, Amy. I was browsing through your lyrics. "Summer Time Days" is delightfully descriptive with an energetic tune. I've been away for a few weeks from having to change medications because of what insurance will allow. Thank you for listening and appreciating "Comes and Goes." I was told I should make a country version of it and Bob Bentley did a beautiful and magical job of playing and producing it. John

Funny, I wondered if need to rewrite "Comes and Goes" because of the pronouns, starting with "She/he comes into my life again, then goes into "And now you're..." Then I was told about the "its" because the word doesn't mean anything. I'll look into it but it always comes down to who listens to it and whose ears it just might tickle! "Summer Time Days" has very good imagery and the lyrical descriptions change and move quickly with the melody and that's very good! Your rewrite is bound to be excellent! You're right, too, you just can't go wrong with Bob Bentley. John

Hi, Bob. "Achill Lament" is a wonderful instrumental that deserves being in the finals, as "Drawing Room" would have been. "Raindrop Soul had the same fate: a 5-star highly commended pat on the back for the Pop category. Well, I'm glad it caught their attention. "Stay Here Now" made the semi-finals of the Retro category. Some of what actually makes it to the finals baffles me. But that's the world of contests and opportunities. John

Thank you John, kind words as always. Your songs have done OK, especially when you see the stats they sent out today, out of over 6000 entries "Around 20% of entries made it to the Semi Finals (ie four out of five entries did not get to the semis). Between 1% and 2% of entries, depending on category, made it to the finals." So not too bad just getting anything to the semis. I'm trying to play it cool at the moment but have only been in the final a few times and would love to win a category.
I recently ditched my personal website, www.bobbentleymusic.com, it was becoming to expensive. I was paying for the domain and then for Wix to host it. No sooner done that and someone wanted to purchase a song (which I did via BJ). I had a flash of inspiration (not common) that my BJ membership included web hosting so I went back and re-purchased my domain name at about a third of the renewal quote and then linked it to BJ. It looks quite good really, has limited customization but certainly does the biz! Just need a queue of people wanting to purchase downloads!
Working on a guitar instrumental at the moment and trying to think of some smaller bits and pieces for underscore opportunities.
Keep well sir
Bob
P.S. Just off to listen to Stay Here Now, I don't recall hearing it before..............

As soon as it started I realised I had heard Stay Here Now, and had already given it 5 stars. It's a brilliant retro song with echoes of Carpenters and many other artists of that time.

Thank you, Bob. "Stay Here Now" was special to me in that I wrote it about the year I spent on the phone with Lora before she moved from Portland to Phoenix to be with me. On March 8, 2021 (I remember that because exactly one year later I retired), "Stay Here Now" hit #1 Earth, displacing Jon Omen's "Hearts Bleed Fire" which everyone thought would stay there forever. Two weeks later, Jeana's "Moonlit Glow" was the next #1, which was very pleasing because of how I admired her instrumentals. When I heard "Bright Skies Ahead" the previous September, I thought oh my gosh, I could never write anything that beautiful. She was the first one on BJ to blow me away. Later, when I heard "Knock 'em Dead," the first song I heard of yours, that was one of the very, very few that really stunned me with the feeling of "this is a really great songwriter!" Blown away again! It's those very unique melodies that stand out that few are able to achieve and the everyday yet fresh conversational lyrics. "Back to a Younger Me" is a bombshell of a song. That one knocks me over. Last January I awoke with a chorus that I knew I'd have to wait to find out what its name would be. It turned out to be "Raindrop Soul," which I consider my most beautiful song, and I marveled at how your guitar solo fit the mood so perfectly. It is just lovely. I don't know if I was able to say that adequately at the time as I think losing Ulan affected me more than I realized. So a "highly commended from UK Songwriting is okay...cat songs seldom become pop song standards. But anyway, I had no idea of what the statistics were for the songwriting contest, so I'm glad "Stay Here Now" made it as far as it did. Perhaps if there were more judges from our era who understand the ways of song structure from back then, we might get into those finals. The pop songs are often a lot more frenetic now, using more 16th and 32nd notes seemingly. That was the first UK contest I tried. You certainly have written songs and instrumentals that are very deserving of winning a category!

Hi, Randall. "Magic of Music" is done very well with your R&B version. Also happy that you liked "Comes and Goes" with Bob Bentley doing his stuff on it. I'm listed with one company that plugs but I haven't heard anything. BJ's even more vague. I get several listens from the providers, get considered, but just miss being chosen. The industry is very fickle. Diving into mixing/mastering has been fun but requires lots of breaks! I can't sit down to it for long periods. I'm remixing my original "Far From Home" tracks and comparing them to what Martin Rodriguez from Argentina did with mine to see if I can get close to what he did. So far so good! It's a great learning experience. At least it keeps me from wasting time on Facebook and all the depressing news! Still looking for that open back door or that "right place right time" kind of thing. I see you're in a library awaiting to see what happens. John

Hey, Warren. Terrific job on "I Still Can't Draw." It has your way with unconventional minor chord progressions that are really hooky, but this one's a really good pounding hard rocker with the wacky somewhat nonsensical lyrics that point at how crazy life is anyway. It's one of those songs to sit back, enjoy, and everyone can draw their own conclusion if they want to. It works very well. It's one of your best fast paced driving rockers. John

"Diane's Song" is the kind of song that O is really good at. They seem to be very much at home with those somewhat melancholy, very haunting melodies. Beautifully done. Personal preference to experiment with just to find out if it works: a little less reverb on the vocal. Or, two identical tracks, one more clear and up front, the other with more reverb. "The Weight" is an enjoyable cleanly done tune.

Hi John,
Congrats on your latest news... much deserved recognition and rewards!

I wanted to say thank for another stellar review of our song "Keep On Walkin". I truly appreciate and respect the time and thought you put into your reviews. It is really rewarding to know that a listener does listen for understanding as well as for the technical aspects of a song. And then provides meaningful and helpful feedback.

I'll pass along your comments to Jane in that she wrote the lyrics to that one... I'm sure your review will make her day!

Again... thank you for doing what you do in the way that you do it! It certainly means a lot to me whenever I'm fortunate enough to get one of your reviews.

Hey John,

After seeing your comment about the storm I hoped all was OK...anyway then I looked to see where you are.. a friend of mine works in a Studio in Arizona - so anyway..if you ever need to go to a studio with a Neve desk - real analogue let me know so I can hook you up...

Cheers man! hope all is well..oh yeah watch out for the Tarantulas up there..my friend was having a shower her boyfriend had to rescue her from an attack by a Tarantula in the bathroom..lol!

I just finished mixing a cool song for them down here in New Zealand..really neat track I think you would like it..

Hope all is good..looking forward to more songs from you soon!

Cheers
Mx!
