Pro General Comments: Hi William, The opening line is very important to set the mood and the scene but i couldn't understand all of the words. It sounded negative but honestly I'm not sure. Please always include a lyric so the evaluator can read and listen at the same time. The groove is positive, happy and energetic. The chorus is happy and positive and energetic so anything negative or personal isn't working for me. Keep it about having fun and dancing. I really like the chorus. The Verses should lead to the chorus. I'm not sure if you are talking to everyone listening about the importance of dancing and having fun even if you don't like the words of the song or if you're talking to someone who you are in a troubled relationship with...I like the introduction it grabbed by attention. The retro R&B sound is one i still love and enjoy listening to. I would prefer the piano to be a little less busy. You don't have to fill ever hole between the lines. Sometimes playing less is more. Let the groove carry the song. The bass is very important in R&B grooves. I could barely hear the guitar because the piano was over powering. The drums were ok but they didn't remind me of the drum sounds and patterns used in early 70's Motown or other R&B songs. The lead vocal and background vocals were good. My only concern is make sure the last word in each line is enunciated clearly.

Quote From Pro: William Smith is a breath of fresh air for those of us wishing to breathe in the sounds of retro Motown R&B and soul songs.
