i see what you're saying. not to sound like a disclaimer, but my album as a whole isn't very heavily produced. it has more of a raw and live sound to it, which some people like, but others prefer more slickness when it comes to recording, especially in pop music, and that's understandable.

i can't really imagine this song in "the breakfast club." on the other hand, if there is ever a parody of "the breakfast club" or other such films, you know, called "80's movie" or something, THEN i shall certainly ship this song. (hmm, say that last clause five times fast...)

oh, and thanks for the picture comments, haha...i know it's out of proportion but i can't figure out how to fix it and i quite honestly don't feel like it. (if you really really desperately need to see a proportionate photo, the same one's in my myspace photos...)

maybe go watch The Breakfast Club and think about what would need to happen to throw that in that movie... the more i listen to the song, the more i think it's decent and could work, but not as listened to... right now it just showcases your voice... also, the photo is nice, i agree with lurker on that, stick with that...

the intro, with the "uh oh"s is nice, but then the song starts... it's hard to say what's not so great about it... I love the "what's up, what's up"... that's a cool little vocal hook... the song almost tries to hard... hurried is right, you're working hard, obviously... and you hit it, vocally, and it rocks, it is a bit dated as a genre, but i'd want this to be more laid back, some nice funky base, also with different instrumentation/mix... if it's gonna be a bit 80s... i want it to go all the way and remind me... i don't think the song has to be scrapped, just exploited more... maybe a little less hard working, and more fun. i'm tired for you just listening to it.

Sorry if that wasn't specific enough, it was the best way I could describe my problem w/ the song. Look, if you stay up late and watch an old low-budget '80s movie, you'll hear songs that sound a lot like this -- way too formulaic and fake rockin' and fake peppy. But, like I said, I agree with all the positive comments here too, especially Lurker's.

you have a good voice, but the music doesnt match it. you seem pressed to hurry with the lyrics. an o.k. popish rock song, but the vocals are screaming for more worthy music. The harmonies are a bit off as well. Maybe redo music less crunch.

Maybe I LIKE 80's B movies!!!

No, not really.

Maybe your MOM is an 80's B movie.

OHHHHH.

No, I'm just kidding. I do appreciate the feedback, but wouldn't mind a little specificity.

The song is really weak. Sounds like a song from an '80s B movie. I agree w/ aaronlife's more positive comments too. but the song is not good at all.
