Pro General Comments: Hi Monique, The form above requires that i evaluate the demo but I hear you. I had to pick someone so I picked Lady Gaga as the sounds like artist...she's as good as it gets right now... This isn't at all bad for a home demo. Lyrically this song plays it safe. There's nothing new in the lyric that hasn't already been said before in other songs but in this genre repetition and easy to remember lyrics win out over meaningful and creative lyrics. Bottom line is yes it's generic but it's catchy and memorable. The drum track is key to pop dance...make sure you pay attention to what the current pop dance hits are and try to capture their drum sounds especially the kick drum...overall the work demo gets the song across well...3:53 is within commercial radio time restraints but 3:35 would increase your chances of success...your vocal was a little pitchy on the low notes...try raising the key a half step to give it a little more brightness...melodies are all good...phrasing is good...rhyme is good...When you do a master demo this song will be a good pitch to movies and television libraries as well as indie pop artists around the world...think J-pop and K-pop as well...tempo could be a few more bpm's faster to give it more energy...This is a good start to a commercial pop dance song...I'd prefer a few more images and actions in the lyric but that's subjective.

Quote From Pro: Monique is an up and coming songwriter and producer. I foresee great things in her future. She possesses the musical skill and talent to succeed.

Pro General Comments: very unique and unpredictable arrangement...the instrumental was very cinematic with elements of cannon booms and gun fire...this was calculated chaos and it build then exploaded build then exploaded the singing was excellent...i never knew where the song was going...i was swept away in the controlled confusion...it's commercial as well as entertaining. The overall sound of the instruments was awesome and the arrangement weaved the vocals in and out creating a sound tapestry...I loved it.

Quote From Pro: this musical piece offers many places for music supervisors to feature sections in various scenes in movies and television. I believe Sandon has a very original, creative and inspirational mind and has the skills needed to be innovative and successful in today's music market. I would be shocked if this song wasn't signed and placed very soon. Keep up the good work.

Pro General Comments: There's so much to like about Tom Reardon's song and recording of "Changed My Life" that there's very little to find fault with. Melodically strong, distinctive storytelling memorable vocals professional performances, arrangement, engineering and production quality all come together beautifully. Seriously nice job in nailing the key elements of what makes the whole package creative and marketable, what I like to refer to as "the holy trinity" of song, singer, and record.First, from the song standpoint, Tom has effectively answered the simple but essential question in "Changed My Life" that eludes many other songwriters: "What is this song about?" We know early on that the singer is a veteran at building walls around her heart and protecting her emotional vulnerability--she's "perfected the art." And so she's doing all she can to get the same funky romantic result from this relationship that she's become accustomed to expect--"waiting for a runaway, waiting for the rainy days." But, alas, life and love surprises her--the usual dirt bag does not show up... and as a result, he not only changes her mind, he's "Changed My Life." Bingo. The other nice surprise is how Tom expands the chorus tag, so that after "You changed my life," we go to a "aa--ahhh" vocal set up with harmonies that comes back to a lyric "until you changed my life." That's a killer hooky, and super-contemporary way to drive home the hook/title/main idea.The singer's work is flawless--beautiful, heartfelt, dynamic storytelling in a performance that is pitch-perfect both technically and emotionally, both in the lead vocals and the harmonies. And the recording is for the most part a first-class master quality demo. The arrangement, engineering, and production are artfully done. Sonically everything is perfect layering and building in the arrangement is also really good.
