what's the common denominator in songs that successfully appeal to the emotions?

I'll add another . . . although it was mentioned above Mr. Bojangles has a very warm spot in my heart as the tune describes Issac "Pork Chops" Mason, an old New Orleans street dancer to a tee. I simply loved backing his act on a couple of occassions when the opportunity presented itself. And with all do respect to Mr. Robinson Pork Chops will always be my Mr. Bojangles. Here he is on stage at the Famous Door on Bourbon Street with Sharky's band back in the 50's. Issac Pork Chops Mason

Ya got good taste, Danny C.

BTW -- the Hammnd organ part on the original classic recording of Ray's America was played by none other than the late great, "fifth Beatle" -- Billy Preston -- when he was still yet a kid, no less. Somewhere around the age of 12 or so, and playin' a recording date with Ray Charles...


--Mac




WOW! Twelve years old and playing a gig with Ray Charles! I can only imagine what must have been going on in that kid's head.

I don't have time to read through this whole post now, but there are several songs that emotionally move me.

One that always brings 'Happy Tears' would be Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's 'Dance Little Jean.'

What a wonderful song, and what a wonderful story.

And yes, even just thinking about it makes my eyes blurry.

Gary

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
