Sounds great over here!

1. The sha la la la part the girls sing is not an improvement.

2. The guitar that plays far in the back around 3:00 is not needed and will give your song more room to breath.


Good job

Good job
Thank you for listening. I agree with you about the sha la la parts. But the producer wants it. I'll try to convince him to re record / remove that part.


Edit :
Update mix, all critique/comment are most welcome! thanks!

Vocals and trumpets sound absolutely wonderful! Pretty much everything is perfect except for the drums. They sound really good, but I think they don't suit very well for the song. The kick is too clicky and the snare has too much of the 'crack'. They would sound cool for faster, rock type song.
Listen to M.Buble "Havent Met you yet". The drums may not sound perfecly but they are made to sound good in the song. The thing you could do for your song is - cut some highs from the kick, to make it sound more diffused and distant. For the snare I would just replace or add a sample of a smaller and higher tuned one. Also some mono old-school reverb would do the trick.
Awesome work, keep it up dude!

Not that my opinion means anything, but I liked the mix and the song.
The funny thing (in the context of the previous comments) is that when I heard the "sha-la-las" I thought to myself: "oh yeah, I should use something like that in a piece soon"... ;-) I guess I agree that they stood out somehow in a slightly awkward way, but I actually liked that! So, what does that mean? A/ My ears and my brain are broken or B/For every thing that you think sucks, there is someone who will think it's great...
Thanks for sharing your work!

PS
What language is that?
(oh, I just noticed you are in Malaysia. So: Bahasa?)

Really good, based upon a listen on a very small playback system.

1) Sha-la-la's are no problem until the outro, when they are too far forward, for my tastes. Muting them in the outro would be best, as I hear it.

2) Not sold on the telephone voice novelty lines.

3) The trumpets are really nice, good lines, well played, well recorded. I'd flaunt them more than you have here, possibly relinquishing some of the snare real estate to the horns.

Really nice overall.
