I was really
surprised and VERY impressed when you told me that you had created the sound bed yourself. Great pop lyrics. You have a knack for writing catchy up to the minute songs.
Your voice/harmonies are superb and I really enjoyed helping you with this.
Love
Len

apb said 3348 days ago (September 24th, 2008)
Very good

.. only things I could suggest to tweak it:

the chorus vocals are nice and strong .. and the backing nicely effected. Some of the earlier verses sounded a bit quiet (relative to that strong synth) and in comparison to the chorus- I would have liked them more up front then.

Performance is great and radio friendly choon to my ears.

Kinda 'glitchy' elements, like Mr.Oizo "Flat beat", remember 'Flat Eric'?

BeccaJohnson said 3348 days ago (September 24th, 2008)
Thank you
Thank you for your positive comments. I was trying for a beat like "Flat Eric" so im really pleased it reminds you of it lol :)))

I think your right about some of the choreses, I did feel that the synth was a bit loud in places, I would like to work on it a bit more soon

clarification ..

the choruses are fine but the verses I thought vocals could come up a tad. Sorry for the confusion.

Difficult genre to master
However you've really cracked it with this! This is chart worthy; what a great singer you are! Brilliant production and your harmonies shine through the strong back beat.

have you ever thought of entering Eurovision? 500,000,000 (yes, 500 million European viewers) would love this - it's about time the UK fared better and I think you could write, perform and win!

Excellent pop music, not enough of it around here! Well done - downloaded and straight to iPod.

Jim!

Very sweet!
And yes, radio ready by all means. Usually that means a bit uninteresting to me, but not this time. I am charmed! :-) Double the voice reverb and you'd be Sandra. Hope you take that as a compliment;-)

Take care, and good luck in the future! I'm sure you've got one!

On 32nd listening..
I have found out that your introductory voice should probably be brought forward a tad or two in the mix. It deserves it! Also I am a bit ambivalent about the pronunciation of "ower" (rather than "over") here and there in the song. It IS - VERY - charming, but still I seem to think about it each time, which probably take away attention from other things. Before CD release you might consider this very very small issue. It's still a great song that I can't get out of my head (day or night) which is a good thing for a song in this genre :-) Take care,

Hi Becca
I've only just discovered you via your collab with Len, and really glad I have! Wow - what a voice! You remind me of so many different styles, from soul to pop, through ABBA to London R 'n' B - a real, genuine pop singer. This is a great mix by Len, and great song and performance. I'm impressed -

Cheers,
Phil

Cool song
You have a great voice, and this is a very enjoyable song.

You need to bring up your voice a bit in the mix. In the intro a couple of notes are completely inaudible, and even in the verses it wouldn't hurt to turn it up a bit.

Hey Bex !
Havent been around much myself :) This is a wonderful song indeed . The sound bed is well mixed and rounded and your voice is beautiful as usual . I do think it needs some tweeking a few spots in the begaining that could come up a little but other than that great production . You get better with each new song :)

i'll walk away . . .
wow - the opening is awesome - at :30 -
blossoming then - west coast USA's "Missing Persons" voice = yours here - ("What are words for")so much like this - also with this style of bass sequencing format -
('80's group) - not to bind you into this -
impressive mixing there - I believe personally ~ ~ ~ on this tune - your tune - - -

Yet another fave
While "lurking" on MacJams, I always liked this piece and this artist, and kept coming back to it. The opening vocals are lovely and clear, and the format is unquestionably "electro-pop," and I think that the somewhat-thin, compressed feel to the vocals in certain sections (contrasted nicely with very fat vocal sounds) really works to the song's advantage, as do the vocal-echo overdubs. "No doubt loops, and lots of them," but ... it works. Len's touch on the final mix is unmistakable. If you're gonna tell your boyfriend to "hit the road," this would be a great send-off to dump into his backpack.
