PlayWhen I'm Small

by McCall Erickson

This song came to me suddenly and surely, like every bone in my body knew what it felt like to be made inferior and small by someone I loved. People close to me heard this song and immediately got worried, thinking they were the ones I was singing about. During a conversation with my mom, after already convincing her that the song isn't about her, she made a profound insight saying, “I think we all do that with each other at some point. Because of our own insecurities, we need to keep other people small.”

I really like this one. Very nice guitar. And I like the mixture of spoken word and vocals.

I wouldn't particularly call myself a 'country music' fan. I have to say, I get a 'country music' feel from this. I enjoyed the words and the guitar. You have a beautiful voice

This was cross-over. It belonged here.

Hey guys. Thanks for listening and thanks for the comments. I'm new to OurStage, and I wasn't quite sure what channel to enter this in. I really appreciate your feedback, though. It helps. Perhaps I can try a different channel . . .Maybe Female Singer-songwriter.

Good points AR. I agree.

Many listening to this channel will have to tie themselves down to listen to this one completely. There are some elements of spoken word in this piece. It is dynamic. It's definitely country -- but I don't think that's a bad thing.

It's not quite spoken word, but it does have elements of poetry. Does it belong in this channel? That's a matter of perspective, but if this were a spoken word collaboration with some of the top artists in the channel this month, it would be a hit... because it's different.

I really like this song. But I don't believe it's in the right category. I would say the same if "Charlie Daniels, Devil Went Down to Georgia" were entered.
