Sunny Day
© 2017 Kenny Leverett

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bluer sky
There’s no clouds here in our way
So many people pass us by
But you’re the only one that I see today

And if I can speak my mind
I can’t hide what’s inside
That you are my sunny day

I knew I was waiting
Waiting for someone
And so many times I wanted to just give up
I didn’t think I’d ever really find the one
But then you appeared and I knew real love

There’s no clouds here in our way
Now that you are here to stay
Girl you are my sunny day

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bluer sky

HI Kenny,

What we've enjoyed about your music recently is the variety in style. You have a real nice mix of laid back and high energy in this one. Your guitar work sounds great and your gritty voice gives this a pleasant but biting edge. As always, we enjoyed uit a bunch. Best to you.

Alan & Di

PS: Happy Friday to you, too!

Kenny,
Nice one! There`s a loose rocking feel to this that reminded me of post-Beatles McCartney and the happy vibe is complimented by those harmonies- love the whoops!
Very enjoyable.

Very cool sound on this, Kenny.

The guitars all work nicely together.

A powerful rock vocal. The woop is great! (seems some "breakup" with the harmonies on "sunny.." - though that might be an accumulation of "rasps").

You are on a tear. And always SO catchy. you have a real knack for that (the way Elvis Costello always did).

Kenny, Great rocker. Super vocal. I also thought the harmonies were distorted. I also loved the woop. Another really catchy write. Good job! Tom

Kenny,

Very nice rock song.
Well composed as always.
We do think however that the mix has slightly too much hi frequency in it.
But that's just a small nit wink

Robert, I appreciate that, wow! McCartney (I wish)

I was trying to convey joy, thanks for noticing the whoops

I was happy that I wouldn't have to sing it again!

I think an upbeat, happy, simple love song is hard to write

maybe the hardest for me, so I really appreciate your comments

#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.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
