General Comments

You kept me listening from the downbeat. It was retro yet contemporary. Great vocals all around. This song would fit very well in movies and television. Romantic break-ups and romantic dramas as well as slow dance scenes. The instrumentation was also authentic to the genre and the performances sounded professional. I can also hear this being included in an R&B album. The song is very commercial in my opinion. I loved both the solo vocal and the background vocals. The arrangement was interesting and entertaining. This took me on a musical journey back in time and then brought me back to the present. Although the lyric is about not finding the right man the music still left me with a smile on my face. I loved it.The instrumental melodic lines added a lot to the overall R&B experience. Mariah Carey would have had a big hit with this song in my opinion. This would have been a big hit with the Fifth Dimension as well. It combines the 70's and the 2000's.

Artist's Submitted Question:

Would like to get this placed in Day time TV and the adult comtemporary charts. Wanted to get your homest opinion if this song has the potential to get on or do well in either one of those placements. Looking forward to your feedback.

Pro's Answer/Comments:

This can be pitched to one of a hundred different music placement companies and music libraries specializing in getting songs in movies and television. The instrumental without the vocal is also very pitchable for movies, television and commercials. The contemporary charts is a different animal. In today's market most artists are also writer's or co-writer's of every song they record. This could be released as is and marketed to I-tunes, Spotify, CD Baby, Pandora, Amazon etc...


Quote From Pro:

The High Children are a musical group worth listening to. The melodies, arrangements, vocals and instrumental quality is very high indeed. I wholeheartedly recommend The High Children for your listening pleasure.
