What I Miss About You



I wrote this song between 2008-2010, but I had difficulties to find a satisfying arrangement. But everytime new realtracks have been released, the arrangement has gone a big leap forward. Hopefully this is the final version. Fellow BIAB users Rob and Anne-Marie (RnAM) added the vocals and did the final mix, thanks to them for their excellent work. Rob's voice really turned this into a catchy pop song; and the backing vocals in the chorus are stunning. All comments welcome!

RealTracks:

#387 Electric Bass Metal
#1729 Acoustic Piano
#796 Electric Guitar Rhythm Pick

MIDI instruments:

Lyrics:

A blackbird singing outside
the pond unbroken fragile
the courtship is seductive
in a dream we are
walking down the aisle.
In reality I can't hurry love
effusive eagerness for flare
it is dangerous walking on thin ice
I should not taste a dawning pear.

What I miss about you
is the spark
when we kissed
at the heavenly hills.
I can never forget about you
how you got excited over
few little thrills
the last waltz hurts on repeat.

A car is waiting outside
you have packed your bookshelves
you have torn the signs down
all the wallpaper
that we picked ourselves.
Praying is futile I can't drag out love
I can't stop the train of mind
can't put back the water of a broken dam
life has no fast forward or rewind.

What I miss...

In eternity
between the rising and falling
between the waiting and longing
for a fraction of a second
we met pure hearted
no abstaining
like never departed
like never departed.

What I miss...

Well, you certainly managed to find the realtracks that worked now. Great lyrics.

Rob and Anne-Marie have presented it perfectly.

Great job.

This is a really nice production and the vocals are great. I would cut the last bass notes at the end though. It seems like the song is over by then. I really like this a lot though. Great job.

Hi Janne,

great arrangement. But the icing on the cake are
the vocals and harmonies by Rob and Anne-Marie.
I enjoyed my listen.

Thanks for giving positive feedback Videotrack, David, Charlie, Guenter, Peter, Noel, Sonny smile I'm glad to hear you liked the production and those excellent singers smile
Rob & Anne-Marie, you are true professionals, I really hope that one day I have another song ready for you to sing smile

David, I added those last bass notes deliberately, because I felt that the ending was lacking something without them. But maybe something else would have worked better...

User Tip - Differences Between the 'Regular' and Audiophile Version... #TipTuesday

Long time program user and forum member Matt Finley had shared his tip regarding the Audiophile version of Band-in-a-Box earlier this year, and it's still valid today!

If you've ever wondered what the difference between the 'regular version' of Band-in-a-Box and the Audiophile version, make sure you read through his forum post: Tip: differences between the 'regular' and audiophile version - it's well written, and always great to hear about the program from fellow users!

The Audiophile Version includes the entire contents of the EverythingPAK and adds the uncompressed WAV or AIFF files for all the included RealTracks & RealDrums! Learn more about the Audiophile version: www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.audiophile.htm

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.
