The Unforgettable Night

I guess it's a universal experience that you have had an unforgettable night but when you wake up, you just can't remember what on earth happened crazy . This is a story about such a night. This song is my latest collaboration with Miira, we wrote the song together, I took care of the arrangement with BIAB and Miira sang her funky vocals.

BIAB has very good selection of funky realstyles, so I have combined several of them together and then added some other RTs for extra spice.

Loops:
Chillout_teardrops_79dminor
DirtySouth_layback_91

RealDrums:
NewOrleansMardiGras
RumbaPerc

RealTracks:
Acoustic Piano #2811
Electric Piano #2155
Electric Guitar #1637, #1638
Horns #2291, #2343
Organ #2619
Sax Tenor #1643
Synth Bass #2580

Vocals: Miira
Other voices: Janne

Mixed in Adobe Audition 2017.

Lyrics:

The night was hot
that's why we got
more than enough to drink.
Swiping plastic
so orgastic
we just let it sink.
All was well
when we left the base
the same old story, hangover case.
The terrace closed
we crawled around
somehow the hotel was not found.

Found ourselves
in the rabbit hole
It surely freed my tortured soul.
I hurt my head
on the concrete bed
tender purring, no words were said
Fallen angels
a daring kiss
squeezed into the sinful bliss.
Knuckles with blood
your broken tooth
maybe my touch was not so smooth.

We can barely remember
what or where was our goal
still backtracking the path
to our rabbit hole.
white lies for those who might ask
the truth will stay behind the mask
I guess we will never know
but it must have been a hell of a rodeo.

The purse was lost
by the motorway
later an Arab saved the day.
Rolling down
in the grass
a story written on my a**.
Shambling streets
seven miles
two adults drunk like juveniles.
Bruises tell
the strangest tale
eye-witnessed by a nightingale.

[Chorus]

(Abducted by the UFOs
or delirium, god only knows)

[Chorus]

We are filling the blanks
where the mind wasn't bright
isn't it ironic
we call it the unforgettable night.

Thanks Scott for the listen and commenting, also on the soundcloud smile Yes it is bit different style this time. I'm glad you liked Miira's vocal.

Nice production. A lot of fun vocal effects going along with the lyrics.

This is a witty write and the vocals are good throughout. Enjoyed this.

Yes, fun and clever! Some cool lyrics, and certainly a cool departure from the forum norm. Well done! Take care. Greg

Nice work, jannesan - as others mentioned, this one is quite "outside the box" if you will! Nice to hear some RealTracks getting use that you don't hear too often. Thanks for sharing!

User Tip - Differences Between the 'Regular' and Audiophile Version... #TipTuesday

Long time program user and forum member Matt Finley had shared his tip regarding the Audiophile version of Band-in-a-Box earlier this year, and it's still valid today!

If you've ever wondered what the difference between the 'regular version' of Band-in-a-Box and the Audiophile version, make sure you read through his forum post: Tip: differences between the 'regular' and audiophile version - it's well written, and always great to hear about the program from fellow users!

The Audiophile Version includes the entire contents of the EverythingPAK and adds the uncompressed WAV or AIFF files for all the included RealTracks & RealDrums! Learn more about the Audiophile version: www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.packages.audiophile.htm

Band-in-a-Box® User Feedback - Wow!

There are so many ways to get in touch with people these days... phone, email, social networking, etc.... so of course we hear more feedback from program users these days!
...and here's what they're saying:

"I discovered Band in a Box about a year ago. I hesitated several times before purchasing it as I couldn't quite believe it was going to be as good as the hype. I eventually relented and I can honestly say, it's an incredible program and does some amazing things. As a songwriter, it's an indispensable tool and I can't imagine not having it."
-Vince C.

"I bought the first band in a box for my Atari 1040 ST and I used it for at least 10 years before upgrading to a Windows computer. After real drums, and then real tracks, came out I have upgraded every December since. The program is absolutely inspired and inspirational."
-Kirk O.

"Not everyone can find or afford real musicians to assist them when writing songs - and if working from home, as many songwriters do, there might not be room for them. Band In A Box does the next best thing and takes recordings of real musicians performing, then makes the material available pretty much in real time, in a form that adapts to your own composition by following the chord sequences. Hard to explain simply, but fairly amazing in practice."
-Steve C.

"Great tool for musicians - and the drummer keeps a steady beat!!"
-Maurice A.

"Great for learning new songs. I was weak on country rock songs and with the combination of using Riffstation and BIAB I am able to creat my own backup track for live performance and practicing songs with easier chording... Thanks PG!"
-Laurent C.

"I have it since 2001, use it all the time, great program!"
-John F.

"Thank you Band in a Box. I am a songwriter, and don't play several instruments, so I love being able to wear 2 hats and write and produce, and then later record vocals... You have probably saved me months/years on my project. Excellent tool. Thanks again!"
-Randy A.

"Didn't think I would ever go down that road but got roped into it by another muso friend, bought it and now loving it!"
-Fred P.
