Usually when you hear the phrase " unintended consequences " it is about something bad. Not necessarily the case. Many thanks to all that listen and comment.

Wrong Turn

Always said I was a traveller never settle down

No woman’s gonna tame me then I’d laugh out loud

guess that i knew better than to believe in my own lies

a master of deception a total waste of time


late at night I’d have a thought life is better shared

Once again I laughed it off as if I didn’t care


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home



sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals

I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know

don’t want to have to go through all that pain again

Hard to feel any warmth at all from the places that I’ve been


Whenever it gets colder you can hear the north wind blow

And every time I hold her I thank God I’m not alone


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home

Great intro, super guitar!

The intro is so important to grab listeners
and too often ignored by songwriters.

This has a strong hook

Such a solid song, has feeling and the execution
and production is top notch

Tommy you're a pro

enjoyed!

Kenny

Pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

Sounds like a hit to me, but then all your songs do!

Great job on this, Tommy! As it was mentioned by others, the hook on this song is truly grabbing. I could imagine hearing this on the radio, no questions asked! Keep up the amazing work, can't wait to hear more from you smile

Tom,

Now this is the kind of song I wish I could find on the radio -
a super intro ( so I`m not tempted to fast forward) and with a great hook on the chorus that had me humming along the second time round.
The bonus is in the lyrics - such a neat twist on the familiar and with some really cool lines:

"sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals

I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know"

Very enjoyable music!

Robert

Hi Tom,

Clicking onto one of your songs is like tuning into a radio station that doesn't exist but sure as hell should. We could listen to a station playing your songs all day - and probably all night, too.

As everyone has already commented, your intro is an instant attention grabber. This sounds as professional as anything we've heard here and a lot of other places. The play on words with "wrong turn" and "wrong way home" meld perfectly for the story in the lyric.

The arrangement is thoughtfully structured with lots of variety, yet keeping everything perfectly melded. Plainly stated, this is damned good music!

Thanks for a great listen.

Alan & Di

Kenny, I have always been a sucker for a signature lick. Think of all the great songs that you can identify immediately from the opening guitar part. Thanks for all the generous comments. They are appreciated. Tom

Nice.

And, already mentioned...
"sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals
I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know"

Consistently excellent. Write, vocals, mix. Nice guitar licks.

Super, super, super. Top-notch all around. (Think I'll just copy this for the next song...)

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.
