Song Reviews

A peach doesn't always come from a peach tree

What a stunning intro into this soft ballad, I'm a fish on the hook. The lyrics are simple but delivered in a way that you can't help but to sing-a-long to. There is a certain cheekiness in-between the lines which brings a smile to a cheeky fella like me. The music is so good from top to bottom, excellent production and mix. I can honestly say, this isn't my usual favorite style of music, but I can't help but applaud a wonderful song that certainly brought a smile to my face. Top marks Don, Bravo !

A very nice serenade

This song reminds me of some by Elvis Presley and also some of the country tradition. It's a very sweet serenade sung by a deep voice, which makes it remarkable for those who love the genre.

A Lovely Love Song

Don Smythe is certainly writing & playing from the heart here, in my opinion. A lucky man, who knows it, and has a great perspective on having a long-standing relationship with mutual respect and admiration. As a 45-year married man myself, I can tell he has the matter in hand, and these two folks deserve each other and know it. Nice tune, arrangement, performance, and accompaniment, BTW.

Don Smythe ...Its Called Being in Love

Another feel good sound from Don Smythe with an original song that has a familiar sound that takes me back to a care free time .. another quality track from some one I have come to admire the fullness of sound and production is well done so what I advise is you ad this track to your country play list and let Xon reming you of that inside out feeling of being in love .. see how much you have in common with Don's thoughts and let it kindle the ashes of desire you have for your partner .. it's called being in love .. Great work Don

It's Called Being In Love

Don Smythe loves her in the morning and in the night. He's got a great song with a kitchen sink of background sweeteners that makes you just want to listen again and again. I'd like to see Don perform live.

Being in Love for a change

Expertly produced and performed track makes this a pleasant love song. In the vein of older tunes I enjoyed growing up, this track takes a simple universal sentiment and makes a nice hook and melody out of it for pleasant listening. Grab your partner for a dance and say I love you too for a change.

It's called being in love

Your song, It's Called Being In Love, flows very nicely from the first note and throughout the entire melody. I especially enjoyed the guitar work. I envisioned myself sitting outside a cantina in Baja, Mexico, eating chips & salsa and washing them down with a cold cervesa! I feel like this composition has been played live several times and comes off very smooth and together in its arrangement. I'd be interested in hearing other songs you may have in your library. I'll look for them. Thanks!

Here We Go Again & Again

Oh, Don, just whenever a song you have done starts up, it just comes up roses. Such a beautiful singing voice, and the chorus never falls and is always right on to deliver the strong feelings. An incredible love song that packs a punch. Simply one of your finest. Sweet ending makes for a repeat. What a hit maker!

Right from the beginning the music drew me in. Very rich vocals. I’m really digging the co veto of this song. I can imagine listening to this song on a vacay. This is definitely a song that takes me back to when music was music. I love almost every genre of music. You nailed bro. Keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working for you. I’ll continue to keep listening to your music.

A Good Song

A beautiful song, and arrangements, that you can listen, or dance to. Vocals are clearly defined, but in a couple of places, I think the rhymes are forced, but subtle. yet, its a great song, anyone can appreciate, listening to.

Professional elaborated Country Song

I like good country music. Best conditions to write something about this song. Wonderful sounding acoustic guitars and perfect drums puts one immediately into the right mood. Virtuos solos accompany the whole song and make the music complete. All instruments extremely good played and stand out. The intro feels like a story. The lyrics come from the heart and once Don Smythe starts singing, the song becomes interesting because of his unique vocals. He capture the mood and brings a sympathic feel into the song. He has a great talent to give an account in words about a loverelation, including all the relevant characteristics, qualities, or events. Perfect orchestrated imaginative transitions from the acoustic-guitars making the song lively and increases the tune. Overall a really impressive and professional arrangement and definitely very creative. I´m sure you will like to add this song. Let others know your recommendation.

I get the felling that Don is in Love and you will too! Hey, love is a very popular topic to sing about...Do we really need another love song? the answer is Yes,...yes we do!

In MY Opinion

Greetings, Thank you for choosing me to review your work, I count it an honor to be included in such a task. My hat is off to you and anyone willing to step out and share their gift, talent and love of music to the public. Be it a musician, singer, song writer, actor and so-on. I myself, via 40 some years of experience in the fields, on the road, in the studio, radio, TV, video, and management, consider myself to be a seasoned musician, singer, song writer, studio-sound tech/engineer/ owner/operator, stage manager, find it sometimes hard/difficult and perhaps not even fair to sit in a seat, voicing My Opinion concerning another's creative efforts. Especially in certain genres of music I am not all that familiar with concerning very important elements that make up and meet the required standards to justify the various levels of ratings and grades. So, in saying ALL that, I will limit myself to MY Opinion concerning the quality of the work according to My ears, and the standards I have been familiarized with thru-out the years. I hold to the old - saying " Beauty Is In The EAR of The Beholder ... LOL. The sound quality of the recording over-all is very crisp and bright and clear, Consider backing off the processing on your vocals a little , not singing in a tunnel, more natural sound, but, not dry and flat either. I really enjoyed the message in this song and the guitar work. I really enjoy when folks use mexican/latin style music to a country song. Vocals are smooth and natural, sort of - down to earth as they say, and extremely peaceful. The mix levels let me know who was still in charge of this song. Very easy to sit back and listen to. I mean no offense in any part, I myself take all feedback and use it as a tool toward my next project. I pray you feel the same way. Either way, I say to you, keep doing what you do, keep kicking and enjoying what you do. I tell folks all the time for many years. When it stops being FUN, then it's time to stop, and stand back and think about what we are doing, why we are doing it, how we are doing it, what we and others are getting out it. Is it what we want, and how we want it. IF NOT. what are willing to do from there? Thank you again for asking MY OPINION. Johnny

Melodic country

This romantic song has a melodic theme, which is played inside a country rhythm, so the result is interesting. I like the little chorus at the background and the sound of the guitar, fast mexican.
