General Comments

Hi Joy,This is a beautiful song with a soaring vocal and uplifting arrangement. I would place this song in the pop/adult contemporary genre. I really love the chord progression and well constructed melodic lines. The meter in verse two is very different than the meter in verse 1 but because this is a song written by you for you to perform the only rule to follow is there are no rules. The different meter made the 2nd verse melody and phrasing slightly different but you made it work. The only thing i would change is the drum track...the wood block hit was distracting to me. The song would be much stronger without it in my opinion. The classical instrumental section that led to the bridge was long but it kept me interested. The bridge lifted nicely and led to a strong last chorus. Beautiful emotional, heartfelt and inspirational vocal. Overall this song is very impressive. I also loved the simplicity of your lyric. Very conversational,easy to follow and understand. Good rhyme scheme. You start each chorus with the hook as an option you might also want to consider ending the chorus with Thank You as well. The way it is right now "only for you" is the secondary hook because that line ends the first two choruses.

Artist's Submitted Question:

I am impressed with your experience.I would like to have your expert opinion about all aspects of this song. I would like you to let me know the possibilities for licensing. It is a song I wrote for my mom, but expressed in a general kind of way.

Pro's Answer/Comments:

The song would be a good pitch to a music library or music placement company specializing in movies and television licensing. Take out the wood block and the instrumental would also be a good pitch to a music library and music placement company. You should also place this song on the internet and make it available for downloads on CD Baby etc and streaming on Spotify, Pandora etc.
