Hello everyone,

Our new song:

Out on the street

Many years ago, about 1994, Rob met this homeless man who told him his story. This led him to write this song .
Originally composed on a Roland E-10 Keyboard. This is the new Band in a Box R & AM version (the original intro samples were kept intact).
It took a while to get the right soloist for this song. Brent Mason (who else :-) ) turned out to be the best.
The video might struck you as kind of gloomy, but we think it suits the song quite well.

Any comments are welcome.

lyrics:

out on the street
there's a ragged man I wanted to meet
he said I'll find a way to make you see
my way of life it worries me

I myself I wander about
and see the people I must do without
you know I'd cry a tear or two
considering the things they do

and though I take good care
no one seems to want me there
there's a way to forget
the wicked things that people said

in a way I'm glad you see
as I roam around in my fantasy
and there's a lot of friends I meet
though they remain in my reality

the reason I go on you see
is a need to find some harmony
I can't live feeling all I do
is what the people want me to

and though I take good care
no one seems to want me there
there's a way to forget
the wicked things that people said

Used real tracks:

Bass Pop Half Notes Ev 85
Accordion Rhythm Pop 8 Ths Ev 85
High Strung Acoustic Fingerprinting Pop 16 ths
Mandolin Rhythm Pop 16 Sync Ev 85
Guitar Electric Rhythm Pop 16 Ths Gritty Ev 16 85
Viola Background Pop Ev 85
real drums: Praiseworshipslow 16ths
Soloist: CountryBrent 85

regards,
R & AM

Hi there Rob and Anne-Marie.

Wonderful song with the feel of a 60s folk/protest song, the sort of thing Leonard Cohen might have written.

Lovely arrangement and production of both the track and the video.

Vocals and harmony were excellent. I can't believe how you manage to do all this not in your native language. It's hard enough for us native English speakers. All credit to you.

ROG.

Really great stuff!! Music works perfectly with all parts fitting together in a sweet and seamless fashion. I love the musical change that occurs as the chorus begins. I think we have another gem! Take care. Greg

Thanks, Pg, Rog, Greg, Charlie, Josie, Guenter, Bob, Lawrence, Dani and RichMac for your kind responses.
Some of you were referring to Leonard Cohen. We are big fans and it so happens we have some Cohen covers on our website.
So.... feel free to check them out.

Rob and Anne-Marie...

A terrific mix of instruments and wonderful arrangement.

Beautiful vocals and harmonies, as always. An excellent mix.

And a beautiful song. The verses had a bit of a "Harry Chapin flavor" which was perfect for the storyline.

A very enjoyable listen.

Great lines. Enjoyed the production all the way around!

Band-in-a-Box® Version 2017 for Windows Build 464 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Windows customers can install the latest patch update (Build 464) here: www.pgmusic.com/support_windowsupdates.htm#464

Added: The RealTracks Settings dialog now has a choice of low/medium/high for Elastique stretching quality, instead of just high quality on or off (high quality off meant medium).
Fixed: Chord sheet fonts were limited to a maximum size that would not quite fill the cells. This would cause superscript extensions to sit too high above the roots.
Fixed: Elastique stretching items were missing from the RealTracks Settings dialog.
Fixed: If pasting a single line of text into a layer using the layer context menu, nothing would be pasted.
Fixed: If pasting multiple lines of text into a layer, the last line would be skipped.
Fixed: Shift+Arrow keys were not working to highlight regions on the chord sheet.
Fixed: The "Select Hi-Q MIDI Patch Plugin" menu item should be available to the Melody, Soloist, and Thru tracks.
Fixed: The Help button in the MultiDrums dialog did not do anything
Fixed: The media player in the Hi-Q patch dialog did not have a volume control.
Fixed: The number pad keys 0, 1, 2 would trigger looping features are inappropriate times (eg. when in the song memo, or when selecting the chorus ending bar, etc.)
Fixed: The visual metronome would take over the StylePicker window when playing song demo.
Fixed: When running Band-in-a-Box with factory settings the floating mixer would appear in the top left corner of the screen the first time it was opened.
Fixed: When the "auto-resize" is enabled for the floating mixer, stopping playback should only move it back to the maximized position if it was in that position prior to playback.
