Thank you Everyone

Thank you heartache for the pain you put me thru

Hello teardrops you're a little overdue

Hey there sleepless nights, you got me feeling low

Hello everyone its been fun but now you got to go

Come on bar stool lets ride another mile

here comes whiskey and my cross eyed smile

I got all my friends, they wont let me be

Thank you everyone its been fun

but now you're killing me

Since you found your new friend,

I found some new ones too

and they wont leave me all alone

the way you used to do


Hello honky tonk, I hear your closing down

hey there barmaid just give me one more round

hello taxi cab, you're my new best friend

Hello everyone I think I'm done this partys got to end

Hello everyone its been fun but now you got to go

Nice feel to the song.

Everything slotted together nicely, including the lead break

Liked the theme also. Great lyrics.

I lived in Bakersfield for almost 7 years in the 90s. You're pretty close on the Bakersfield sound ... a little twangy guitar (Don Rich style) would put this over the top. But that pedal steel sounds mighty fine! The fx on your voice works fine. The lyric fits the theme perfectly.Nice work!

Good work on this, zydecoal smile I found the groove on this tune absolutely infectious, and the lyrics are really interesting as well. They definitely paint a picture of sorts. It's got spunk to it, and it's got a professional sounding arrangement too. Nothing I'd change!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

This is fantastic. You really captured the Bakersfield sound IMHO. Add a little Don Rich guitar would put it the Buck territory. Nice vocal and lyrics.

This is great!

Hey, there, "zydecoal"...

Nuthin' like a bouncin' boogie groove to get folks out on the dance floor!

Your rhymes are inspired. The Real Tracks make the room shake with the rockin' of the rhythm and the boom of the bass.

Your lyrics warn us "the party's got to end", and that we "got to go", but your music clearly says otherwise! Make up your mind! laugh

Everyone's gonna thank you, "zydecoal", for "Thank You, Everyone"!

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.
