Dear friends!:))

Thought I´d start the new year
with a brand new love song for
my sweetheart ! There is not
much falsetto in this but I can
inform you that I have recovered
almost completely from my earlier
problems with the voice and sure
hope I would be allowed to go on
at least on this level for many
years to come ! This happens to
be my 98 th tune posted on the PG
site so soon we´ll be celebrating
the hundreth but not really yet !
Happy New Year to all of you !

Here are the links:



Less Reverb:

Here are the lyrics:


You know , I wonder if there´s anyone just like you
and should there be, I really don´t care
´cause it´s you and noone else who´ll be me oh so true
anyway, anytime, anyhow, anywhere

That´s why I´ll always love you so
that´s why we´re always on the go

And it´s hard for me when you´re not here beside me
´cause you and only you can make me whole , for all to see
and I love you

It´s been like this from the moment that we met, dear
you´ve been there, always on my mind
it is just like I was floatin´round in mid-air
carried by your love so sweet and kind

That´s why I´ll always love you so
that´s why we´re always on the go

How I miss you darlin´when you´re not around here
how can I just survive without your deepest love to share
our moments are there to spare

You only need to leave me for the shortest time
when I´m alone I´ll just go blue
and that is what I´ll do
Why do I feel the way I do when you´re not here to chime
I´m sure you really miss me too, miss me too

I wonder if there´s anyone just like you
should there be, I really don´t care
´cause it´s you and noone else who´ll be me so true
anyway, anytime, anyhow, anywhere

That´s why I´ll always love you so
that´s why we´re always on the go

And it´s hard for me when you´re not here beside me
´cause you and only you can make me whole, for all to see
and I love you darlin´, yes I,ll do
and I love you darlin´, yes I´ll do !

This is a really nice, well written, heartfelt love song. I always enjoy your submissions and glad your voice is getting back to the point you can submit songs again. 100 posts is impressive and you're so close. I'm looking forward to celebrating your achievement with you.

I enjoyed this a lot but did feel a bit of a disconnect between the music and vocals on this song and thinking there may be a bit too much reverb on your great voice. It's good either way, I personally think there's not much production needed for your vocals.

Wow! near 100? That is amazing. Excluding collabs I think we're at 55 or so. Wish we were as prolific. And were I a prolific writer I'd crank out a love song everyday for my bride smile

You are the master of the heartfelt love song and we're sure that being in love helps!

A great 98th entry into the catalog!

The only exercise I did this month was run out of money!

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

Good warm feelings and romance come through in many of your songs and this, even with less of your trademark falsetto, has that unmistakably Dani sound.
Very enjoyable music, roll on the big 100!

#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.
