Allow me to be critical. I was largely unimpressed. This seems like a routine not meant for laymen, but instead meant for magicians. And as such, I can see exactly what you are doing. There was no feel of magic. Just a series of controls meant to be coordinated with the music. Best thing I saw was the visual change from the Jack to the Queen, that was impressive. You have very good sleights that can fool a laymen, but I don't think a laymen will be impressed by this, only confused.

I never really liked that song. That and there is just something about using that song with a series of heart productions. It is such a combo that it was sort of cliche' the first time anyone did it.

One thing that I think should be kept in mind. The magic should be the focus. Music can add alot to an effect, but the music should serve the magic. In this example, it appears the magic is serving the music.

B for effort.
What the edited is with those cards ? I don't know why somebody would want to do an effect where the identity of the cards is integral and then make the cards as difficult to see as possible.
Agreed with the others that this is too much technique too poorly done to create a magical experience.
