Pro General Comments: What man wouldn't want to hear his woman sing this (or say this) to him. This is a marvelous message and the underlying current of undying love really comes through.The intro is just right...short and sweet but really sets up the first verse. The lyric in the first verse is easily accessible and conversational..no wondering what the lyric means (and in my humble opinion, this is the essence of a GREAT country song!). The track is understated and clean. The performances of the musicians are just right for the track...no overplaying or competing for attention. The vocal is clear, in tune, in time and delightful sonically. The voice makes me want to hear more. I really love the sound of this recording. If I were to make one suggestion, it would be that the song could use a modulation at the end, just to add to the dramatic flair. That being said, from a demo perspective, this is perfect to pitch to artists, labels, publishers or producers.

Quote From Pro: DeDe has found a unique, original and clever way to say what every loved one wants to hear.

Pro General Comments: Wow. What a nice change. A song that really works...stands on it's own and takes the listener on a sonic journey to another place and time. The track sounds wonderful and lush without being overbearing or "too much". The instrumentation is just right to lift and support the lead and backing vocals. The lead vocal is beautiful. On pitch, in time and an incredibly pleasing timbre. I am very impressed with the vocal performance, not just the lead but also the backing vocals. It is quite obvious you are a pro and know what you want from the studio! I am very impressed by this song!

Quote From Pro: DeDe is an exceptionally talented singer songwriter. If you haven't heard of her, don't worry, you will very soon!Chris Keaton

Pro General Comments: I feel this song has serious club and urban radio potential. The female vocal is great and reminds me of a female Drake. All of the sounds and drums and feels are very current. I like the vocal efx, sounds like a autotune sort of thing. The apreggio synths are spot on also. This song could also go to Rihanna, as sometimes she sings these kinds of songs with a hard hiphop-trap element to it. All in all, its a very hi-quality song and the featured artist could very well release this on her own and potentially do very well.

Pro General Comments: Hi Susan, I'm hearing this as a possible pitch to movie and television opportunities.It shows a contentment and an acceptance of who you are and could serve as an encouragement to others to love themselves for who they are and not as others see them.4:26 is a too long for today's commercial pop radio. Try to keep your commercial length to under 4 minutes if you want radio airplay. The flip side of that is 4:26 is fine for music libraries and music placement companies. I understand that this is a demo and you're thinking of having it produced in a top line studio with a professional vocalist. That of course will make a big difference in the broadcast quality. In this section of your evaluation i want to concentrate on your song lyrics and music. Lyrically you should always ask yourself "Is this a unique perspective" Am I saying something new and original? If you're not then you are running the risk of being lumped together with tens of thousands of good songs about being me and being free. If you are writing for movies and television then your odds improve with production but if you are writing for another artist to record your song then it becomes important to challenge yourself not to settle for what's already been said and dare to be different and say what hasn't been said...Be careful not to use one vowel as a repeated rhyme too many times...Your use of E rhymes in verse 1 and the use of key words from your hook might water down the hooks impact in your chorus...just something to think about...the lyric isn't all that important if the song is being used as background music in a television show or movie but regardless i want you to be as original and creative lyrically as you can...use more imagery...paint more detailed and colorful word pictures. Think three minute movie...show more...You have a great sense of internal rhyme and meter...musically this is very safe...easy to follow...it's familiar phrasing and chord pattern will make it easy to sing and remember...keep in mind this is OK for movies and television but these days most artists also write songs. You'll need to compose melodies that they will wish they had written. Take a little more freedom to expand your range which will make your melodic lines more interesting...predictable can sometimes be too safe in commercial radio pop...dare to be different and take a few more chances musically and lyrically...

Quote From Pro: Susan Odella is a talented songwriter who in my opinion will have an impact in both commercial pop and music for movies and television.
