A little love song.

A Woman And A Man

©2012 Robert Randall Burke

A crowded room
A subtle glance
A fleeting promise
Of romance
It's been this way
Since time began
Between a woman and a man.

A whispered word
A gentle touch
A knowing smile
That means so much
It's in the script
It's in the plan
For a woman and a man.

A stolen kiss
A soft caress
Passion's fire
You can't resist.

Soft music plays
As we embrace
A darkened room
A secret place
It's been this way
Since time began
Between a woman and a man.

Awesome. Gorgeous. Beautiful. "On all levels", as Noel would say... Song is incredible. Beautiful melody and beautiful lyric. Simple and elegant. The tracks are perfect - the mix, too. Nice guitar that you added as well.

And your vocal - outstanding.

A big WOW!

Man, this is so good!
Simple lyrics and great delivery.
I enjoyed the tune too and the middle 8 guitar playing the double stops - EXCELLENT!!
I was surprised at the long slow fade out ending - very right for the song and it also stops you having to figure out a decent BIAB ending - lol!
Top Class stuff, Bob
Many thanks

The music sets the mood for the lyrics perfectly. Enjoyed the song a lot. It would a good fit for Michael Buble. Nice guitar as well.

Love the song Bob. One change I would make. The last note should go down and hold a bit.

Bob, there is nothing little about this song! It is top shelf all the way.

As soon as I heard the chord progression and your outstanding vocal all I could think of is that the Frank Sinatra would have grabbed this one as soon as he heard it.

Fantastic work here!

This is a keeper!

Put me in the same boat as the rest of the crew, this is a wonderful song. For some strange reason it brought to mind Beauty and The Beast and that is a good thing as that too is an awesome melody.

Some melodies just grab me and this one did just that, heck I would love to put that song in my playlist for next week's gigs.

This is superb.... I am starting to feel too inhibited to post songs on here, with the escalating quality like this one. Tasteful, balanced, understated, moving.... Love to use adjectives.

I am haunted by a vague memory of another song, with the lyric, "... between a woman and a man." I can't quite grasp it, but maybe it's a reggae tune. Can you help me out?

Floyd, Ian, Austin, Guenter, Robert, Rob, Mario, Danny, Curt and Brad,

Thanks for listening and the kind remarks.

I just did a copyright search and found one song with a similar title - “The difference between a woman and a man” by Bobby Braddock, who as it happens, co-wrote “He Stopped Loving Her Today” for George Jones, which is my favorite Country song of all time. Kate Bush has a song called “Between A Man And A Woman”, but I've never heard it or Kate Bush. I don't listen to much music.

I also found this one by “Flogging Molly”. Grand drinking music.

I got it, it came to me overnight, in the memorable voice of Peter Gabriel. Took a while to find it, though. It is "Blood of Eden," on the album called "Us". Not reggae, but sounds African to me. And coincidentally, Kate Bush (a very fine artist, worth looking up) has done some memorable tracks with Gabriel, but not on this album.

Here, done with Paula Cole:

VERY nice song Bob! Very classy ... to expand on what Danny said, it would be a home run in any live set. I can easily imagine the dance floor filling up with couples who are living the lyrics.

Two thumbs up!

Bob, that's a really excellent piece of work. I adore the chord progression.
It's all been said above; top drawer track.

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication:

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me":

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at
