Lyrics:

I was walking on that road you seem to know so well
yes, it was like you so painstakingly described
now I wasn't paying attention, but I may have heard her,
eh, You may have hurt her
it seems so long ago, and that's funny isn't it?
ha, surely you'll remember.....

Where did you go to my little Mandy?
Did your lovin' all run out
where can I find you my pretty Mandy?
Hope you find a resting place

but I decided to turn around, not really getting into it you know.
after all who wants to know, I know you don't
you haven't forgiven yourself have you?
yeah that seems unlikely and would be way too hard
you still hear her at times?
you can admit it, I know you're still running

Where would you go to my little Mandy?
A place where no one will be found
Never a trace my pretty Mandy
I hope you found your resting place

there must be fragments of memories
there must be.... something
you never even told me what went on that night
about where she was and where she went
I know you couldn't stand it, hell you couldn't even stand yourself
but what you did, what you did

Where did you go to my pretty Mandy?

Did your lovin' all run out
Never a trace my pretty Mandy
A place where no one will be found
Where can I find you my little Mandy?
I pray you find your resting place

Hi Rob.

That took me by surprise!

A big change in style from a lot of your earlier stuff, but I must say I loved the whole thing from start to finish.

It's never easy getting spoken lines to work, but I thought you did a wonderful job with this one. In fact, the entire arrangement is very clever, with a great solo and a really intimate atmosphere.

Excellent.

ROG.

I really like this. It's unique. Deep.



“you never even told me what went on that night
about where she was and where she went 
I know you couldn't stand it, hell you couldn't even stand yourself 
but what you did, what you did...”


That, is excellent writing, IMHO.


Regards,


Bob

Beautiful song Rob! The spoken lines transition so well to the lines sung in the chorus. Everything sounds great! Thanks, Torrey

Rob,

Original and haunting. Your vocals are as flawless as ever and the arrangement nicely restrained. A song that stays with you.
The video is your most professional to date imo (well worth watching full screen).

Rob,

Fantastic music creativity shown again.

This is most enjoyable, and so well presented.

Choice of style and instruments was just superb.

Hi Rob. Mysterious and haunting and quite fascinating.
Makes me think of Madeline McCann. Great job.

Rob, I wasn't expecting that. The spoken words work so well. I enjoyed the fill in the blanks aspect of the lyrics. Nicely done and a very enjoyable listen. Tom

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 Build 3 Patch Update Available!

PowerTracks Pro Audio 2017 users can download a new patch update here!

Summary of changes with Build 3:
Added: Always on MME added (checkbox setting).
Added: Drag and drop from the drop station to VSTI plugins, that support this, is now implemented
Added (build 2): Localization support.
Fixed: a few miscellaneous minor localization and help-topic link issues.
Fixed: FX button now correctly turns blue if MIDI track is actually using a VSTi or DXi synth.
Fixed: Improved support for the Vielklang VST instant harmonies plugin.
Fixed: Program title was changed to 'file converter' if a conversion needed to be done such as after recording (this affected the title shown when alt-tabbing or hovering over the icon on the task bar, etc.).
Fixed: Saving to XML would result in the timing being wrong, if the song's PPQ was not 120.
Fixed: the choose note dialog in Notation Window had garbled text.
Fixed: The time location of time-based VSTi plugins was being continually advanced when RB was stopped. This has been fixed so that the VSTi time location now gets set to PT's current time location when playback is not happening.
Fixed: when drawing a slur in the situation of notes being extremely close together, program could potentially slow down or freeze.
Fixed (build 2): Code 740 error could happen after installation finished when launching program.
