Pop Country Co-write with Camden West (vocals/guitar on track) and Elysse Yulo (track building/production). This is still a worktape/unmixed track.

Feedback Requested


Any is good.

1) A number of places in the song where I thought, “Nice clever turn of a phrase”—I liked your lyrics—(GOOD)
2) I thought the production was decent, especially considering that you stated above, “This is still a worktape/unmixed track.”
(GOOD)
3) On the other hand, your constant diet of chords
[C - G - Eminor - D] soon seems, imho, a little tiresome and “offputting.”
(imho, NOT SO GOOD)

Other than that last critique I made, I liked your song and thought it was pretty solid!!!  Good luck with all your musical endeavors!

Nice song with a modern groove and phrasing, nice musical hook in the verses. I’m sure: full produced this will sound great!
Hey Bob - this is Country - we don’t need a waste of chords (LOL).

I really like this idea, Chad. Cool play on words with daylight savings. I like the chorus phrasing, and melody. Such a cool idea and song. The only thought I had was to find a way to include a small reference to daylight savings in your first verse so the setup is stronger to the hook. You have the clock references and time and the “tick tock” which sings really well, but nothing specifically about falling back or springing forward. I think for daylight savings, it begins in the Spring, where we “spring” forward an hour in order to make the day longer in the evenings over the summer; so I was thinking maybe something about “moving the clock forward” or “turned my clock forward” somewhere in the verse, then the setup to daylight saving is solid. Ultimately, that’s just a suggestion based on how it reads when I read the lyrics, it was something I realized might make it a stronger connection; but hearing it sung is a different story, it still sounds cool. I just figured that might make the hook more solid with a small reference like that. Anyway, I really like this song, Chad. Such a cool idea and feel. Thumbs up!

Daylight Saving

Written by Chad Sellers

Daylight Saving
By Camden West, Elysse Yulo, Chad Sellers

Verse 1
Staring down the clock, waiting for the tick tock
To spin me a little bit closer to you
Cashing in and heading out, as soon as the sun goes down,
See what kinda trouble we can get into

Pre: Don’t worry bout the bank account, we’re gonna let it drain out

Chorus
Daylight saving for moonlight spending
With you, misbehavin’ as soon as the sun is fading
Borrowing time so we can go all night
Jump ahead, you in my arms, fall back underneath the stars
Don’t keep the moonlight waiting
Cause we’ve spent the whole daylight saving
Don’t keep the moonlight waiting
Cause we’ve spent the whole daylight saving

Verse 2
Restin’ up all day, so we can let the night play
Out, not a kiss going to waste
Lightin’ up with you around, dontcha know we run this town
No mistakes, just memories we’re ‘bout to make

Chorus

Bridge:
Baby, the night’s wide open, let’s close it down

Chorus/End
