Epic hurtin' songDana has this rare vocal warmth and sustain. The crafting of the tale is wonderful, clever, interesting in its chord progression, lyrically compelling, and flows seamlessly. The solo guitar and sax licks are yummy, fitting and perfectly executed. The mix of the recording is ideal, and nothing short of professional. All the vocals can be clearly heard, no one instrument overpowers. Overall, a marvelous piece of work.
Best thing you ever hadGreat voice , great band . Great timing , the whole recording is spot on . I love this song and all I have shared it with have loved it too . I sincerely hope it becomes famous . Good luck with it , Cliff
Beautiful!It's hard to determine where to start when analyzing so much ingenuity, but with a song of such epic proportions of listening pleasure, it is only fitting to start with the melody. When I hear this beautiful tune of arpeggios going up and down, I feel as though I am being uplifted by angels, dropped, and lifted again, like a heavenly game of angel hot potato. It's also impossible to indulge in this harmony without salivating at the complexity of chords. The structure of chords is so structural, and the harmony is so harmonic, it paralyzes me with wonder that one human man could give birth to a piece of such epic proportions. Wonderful song and even better performance.
Great songLovely soulful vocals and a catchy chorus. Some really nice instrumental breaks too. This is a great number which is extremely well produced too. This lady is rightly popular on the nm1 platform - keep up the good workj
Love it!Dana Jordan can sing...what a voice! Her bluesy voice with a country tinge and pop. Song equally as good with a band that accompanies her very well. The saxophone that comes in at the end...love that ending! Awesome. One of the best new songs I've heard in a while.

Nice bluesy BalladThis is very well done, very professional, great production and mix, really sounds suitable for radio. All instruments play clean, no solo excesses, every note is in the right place. The singer is very present without exaggeration and this "I show you what I can" attitude, which you often find in songs like this. The only thing I find less successful is the lyric. It may sound a little presumptuous to some ears to say: 'I was the best thing you ever had', you've heard it very often from the other perspective (You were the best thing I ever had) and I understand the attempt here, to try something new, but I don't think it works well, it makes it difficult for me to relate to the song.
Great songIn line with the great songs of the Stax period ... beautiful melody, beautiful voice, beautiful guitar playing, I love it ! From France, i wish you the best dear Dana. Rolando Giordani - Leadguitar
Yesss!!I love this song. It reminds me of sitting on the porch and rocking back and forth thinking about my experience in relationships while eating ice cream saying too bad for him, he lost a good thing baby!
Best Thing You Ever HadGood bluzy tune! Vocals were good and love the saxophone. It didn't grab me as your other songs have. I think I was looking for more feeling in your vocals. All around it is a well sang and played song.
best thing reviewstrange little twist to musical start catches your attention, bnjo and guitar catches op to the bass and the vocals are so strong and is no wonder this lady has been up there at the top the story telling in this song stiry never misses a lick sounds like a horn moved in to take a shot and the arraingement is great , I would advisse you to go and listen and enjoy this great little tune. Great cover Dana I like it and most others will also. Vocals are great and musical mix is to. A winner!
Got me listening all the way to the end!!First beat and was hooked on your music. Love your voice, and your band is something that I can listen. Love the bluesy and soulful feel of this song!! Keep up the good work!! I'll be looking forward to hearing more and more.
Decently greatMinor beginning,sounds like a torch song,good 6/8 feel and voice strong,the verse was up till the title,the line best thing you ever had had to many syllables and sounds uncomfortable to sing,nice sax sole, good sax will save a marriage ha ha,anyway decent song,needs a little tweaking to make it just little better,towards the end you’re singing it better,I think changing the rhythm up on the tag works,but you have to be careful there’s a lot going on i that tempo and meter.
letting go-beautifula beautiful tear jerking ballad about a relationship gone bad-lots of us have been there-powerful voice and great band-good production-madison tenn dana joran-applause applause! she has what it takes and hopefully it takes her far!
Great song about being done wrongLove your voice and it really shows the pain of the meaning of this someone done wrong song. Really brings out the hurt of being treated that way by someone that you thought loved you as much as you loved them. I have been there and the song is a lot of truth. Great job Dana Jordan!
Dana's Soulful Vocals are Grammy Worthy!Dana Jordan is one of the best indie artists ever. Her songs were beautifully amazing, and her vocals were hot! Keep it up, Dana! She will be the best in 2018, and she is the one, always the one! x
