In 40 days, Light In The Dark, will be released into the world. If I'm honest, I'm a bit anxious about it. I want people to like it. I want people to like me. As a songwriter and a human being, I think it's natural for you to want people to like what you do.
I have gotten a lot of great feedback too, from people I know, about the first single 'Dancing In The Rain'. I wanted, though, to get a little feedback from people I didn't know. That way I could get some input from people who have no emotional connection to me, and the song could then stand on it's own. I ended up conducting a market test to see what people thought, and got close to 75 reviews. The following are a few of my favs.
The encouraging ones:
The not as encouraging ones:
All in all, the overwhelming majority of reviews were very positive, and I did leave encouraged. It just goes to show though, that some people will like what you do, some people won't, and you can't please everybody. Especially not that last reviewer :)
What do you think?
