A bit repetitive

While it was a bit on the repetitive side, it was overshadowed by the catchy beat. Whether or not it relates to Billy Mays isn't as important as the content, which this has plenty of.

The guitar I considered to be a bit on the average side, and would agree with Coop that you should fade out the melody just for a bit to really let it be heard. The keyboard was a nice touch as well, but you really shouldn't have cut off the song at the end the way you did; just let it fade it out.

Same critique, but this gives me perspective on things. I know the main problem now so I'll make the right adjustments then.

An interesting dedication

Certainly a nice sounding song, but I can't picture myself using this tune to do some cleaning to, with a selection of Mays' employer's cleaning products. It just doesn't seem right.

Anyway, we need to move on, so I think that you've done something nice with the guitar that you threw in there. Perhaps try fading out the beat and melody, as that gives the guitar even more stage (possibly just lose the melody) and make it a solo, which would sound great.

Good blend of keyboards that you've put in, it certainly makes it a rather happy and industrious sounding tune that you've made. Although a little repetitive in places, it's not bad.

The finish was a little abrupt. Consider looping it.

Sawdust responds:

Yes, thanks a lot for your suggestions.

I made a new version some time ago, I'm going to submit it, I'm not sure if it's any better though. Still, thanks!

Why Billy Mays?

It's funny that you named it Billy Mays, because there's a certain Michael Jackson quality to it actually..

It was good at the start, with the nice beat, but the melody was a bit weird and repetitive, and then when you suddenly went into the guitar it felt like you had switched song completely.

Sudddenly cutting it off at the end didn't work. Try to find interesting ways of ending your songs.

Overall, it was adequate, but repetitive and boring at times.

Sawdust responds:

Haha. Funny you saw that Billie Jean type drumming.


Good, but repititive

A nice song. You used a lot of different sounds and instruments. It starts off as a mostly electronic song but in between you suddendly come up with a nice guitar solo. The solo fits in pretty well where you put it.

However, the song gets a bit repititve after a while. Quotes would be nice to have, even though I wouldn't even recognize them (I don't live in the US and I wouldn't evene have a clue who Billy Mays was if it wasn't for NG and wikipedia ;) ). But it would bring some more variation into the song.

Sawdust responds:

Thanks, I'll try to get some quotes then and put them in.

Good song in itself.

I think the song is pretty good in itself, but really doesn't seem related to Billy Mays. You actually never said it was suppose to be related to him though, just dedicated to him.

*Creeping off of other reviews* I really like the idea of finding some quotes by him and putting them into the song where things get a bit repetitive because there are a few parts where it gets quite repetitive.

That may be hard to find so perhaps you can try to do his voice yourself? Maybe that won't work though just throwing out some ideas for you. The guitar solo was probably the best part of the whole submission. More guitar please. :P
