"Smile (Everybody Needs to Smile a Little) - Several years ago, I wrote a Christmas song titled, "Smile (Everybody Needs a Little Christmas)" (also available on this site) and dedicated it to a former youth minister, Todd Nelson and his family, who served at St. Andrews Baptist in Columbia, SC for many years. It is a fun song that I love to sing during the holiday season. A short while later, I decided that a more universal text was needed. Now this song can be sung all year long. It’s a song that really does "make you smile" all year long. This song has been recorded on a CD project called, "Where is His Love Taking Us Now?" by Tom Eggleston (see: www.egglesong.citymax.com)

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
