Cherish - The Association


This is a Lyric Music Video I created in Windows Movie Maker in just a few minutes. I imported a background photo, downloaded the song lyrics and cut/pasted the lyrics using the Captions Button. I added a Title and Credits and then imported my audio and checked the Fit to Music Button, saved and done.

The song was done completely in Band in a Box 2018. I started by importing a MIDI file. This populated the chord chart and placed the midi on the Melody Track. Using the Sequencer, I removed the melody tracks from the midi file as well as other tracks that I wanted BIAB generated tracks to play.

In the StylePicker, I searched for the song title - Cherish. From the search list, I was actually satisfied with the first style on the list;

_GRVYPNO.STY - Memo: Instruments include acoustic piano, jazz funk drums, electric bass, organ, and acoustic guitar. Tempo=110 (90-130). I added the RealTrack 2975 Ooohs & Aaahs for some background vocals to complete the track.

Cherish, written by Terry Kirkman and recorded by The Association was #1 for three weeks in 1966.

Enjoy singing along and comments are welcome.

Hey Charlie!

Add me to the John and Trevor world choir, too. I remember this song so clearly from when I was quite a bit younger. It's a great arrangement that you've put together smile

It's pretty good way to start 2018!

All the best for the new year.
Noel

Noel's remark had me thinking there's a "We are the World" kind of thing going on here at the forum...

or at least some future candidates for ooh & aah's RealTracks.

I'm glad all of you enjoyed the arrangement. I was amazed to learn the song is as old as it turned out to be when I researched the composer to include in the credits.

Hi Charlie,

I'm late to the party, but I want to congratulate you on the nice versions of CHERISH and LISTEN TO THE MUSIC you've posted recently! You make a good point about starting with a MIDI file that already contains the signature passages. MIDI files are available from many sources, and its a great way to start a cover song in BIAB.

I've always manually entered my own MIDI in the Piano roll editor, so I guess my approach makes it harder than it has to be... (and also skewed my opinion about how hard it is to make great-sounding cover songs with BIAB.)

Thanks to you and 90db for providing such good examples of what's possible.

Thanks. I suggested using MIDI for songs to Joanne Cooper some time back and she did a wonderful and thorough step by step tutorial Blog on her website that's useful to beginners and the more advanced as well.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
