Reviews for "Mend"

This would do well with a traditional folk, Woody Guthrie type treatment. Wish I had the skill to do it. Bound to be used well however, such a fine offering it is, and thematically spot on.

nice one, Ciggi. you may think this odd, but this song could well find it’s way into the churches of the future & be sung as a revered hymn.

I don’t think that’s odd, I think that’s a lovely thing to write. Thank you very much, Panu. xxxx

simple presentation of a far-reaching idea…I think Mr. Moon’s comment about future-hymn just about sums it up too.
Your voice as always - clear as a bell.

A simple and lovely folk song. The best pells, you can hear the accompaniment in your head. This is one of them!

A lovely and well-sung lyric with great sentiments - and I can imagine it being used in all sorts of different ways.

I love this song! There is something completely classic about it — as if it were a song that has been around for years, and years — the message direct, the melody comforting. Brava!

Thanks so much, Susan. It’s a bit simple but I’m hoping that makes it nice and easy to mix into something interesting. xxxx

Agree with Panu, this song has hymn-qualities. The last verse is so beautifully sung, it sends shivers down the spine. This is a very rare pella in the sense that you can almost hear the instruments, the chords playing along to your voice without them being there. Expect a few mixes on this one.
I’ve been following the development of your singing the ten months I’ve been on this site, this is one of your top pellas so far. I sincerely love it!

There is nothing like the unmistakable truth when it is heard and age old reminder of “make do and mend” is a real life phenomenon that has mistakenly been replaced by consumerism. This is great! L
