Hi, friends !

I wrote this tune a long time ago
but only now when I´ve got the
Daniettes backing up my vocals
have I been able to get it done !:))

It is a jazzy tune with a small solo
played on my fender !:))

Written in BIAB, mixed with Mixcraft 8,
compression and reverb used sparsely

The Style used is _SJCOOLG.STY (Smooth Jazz Cool Swsw 16)
and the instros are:

Bass:902, Piano:1995,Drums: Realdrums Smoot Jazz Cool,
Guitar 1: 1228, Daniettes: 3063 Vocal AAhs

Here are the links:

http://app.box.com/s/bzme9zm2tejhw4vs01s2hhhgbxhhkhbz

...and here are the lyrics:

It´s Only Just A Dream (Words & Music by Norman Wibe)

When day turns into night, babe
and you´re not here beside me, dear
I´ll dream that I can feel you there
beneath my quilt, so light
I can hear your breathin´,almost quitely
it lessens my anxiety

´cause I know you, I feel your scent so sweet
and I love you, just more by every beat,
beat of my heart, that is the part
that is struck by Love´s own dart. Oh, babe !!!

I´ll turn around t´wards you, babe
I wanna hug you so sweetly dear
I wanna feel you close and near
and that is what I´ll do
caressin´ you so quitely, gently,
lovin´ you so dearly, dear

cause I know you, I feel your scent so sweet
and I love you, just more by every beat,
beat of my heart, that is the part
that is struck by Love´s own dart. Oh, babe !!!

Solo

You kiss me cutely in my sleep, bahe
I can feel the moist right on my lip
I can touch your tongue with my own tip
and I know I´m in it deep
you turn me on, my darlin, spiritually
though it´s only just virtually

cause I know you, I feel your scent so sweet
and I love you, just more by every beat,
beat of my heart, that is the part
that is struck by Love´s own dart. Oh, babe !!!

It´s only just a dream
You know I´m in it deep
You know I´m deep in sleep
It´s only just a dream
You know I´m in it deep
You know I´m deep in sleep,
sleep

Cheers
Dani

Dani, this is one great song with a very nice guitar lead thrown into the mix.

Two thumbs up.

Yes! That jazz sound is very nice with the smooth vocal.

And a swing feel is ALWAYS good for us.

"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing!"

Great vocal and a fine mix too.

Enjoyed it!

Hello, Dani

Really nice chord progression!
The melody on the top is also wonderful.
The modulations are very pleasant.

Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

As I have said many times before, I really enjoy your chord progressions. Now this time you surprised me with a well placed solo. The notes you chose were perfect. Your vocal sounds great and this is another outstanding Dani love song, Tom

Really nice job on this smile The groove is fantastic, and your vocals compliment the jazzy vibes perfectly. Plus - as someone else mentioned, the chords selection here is very unique. The whole experience is just really nice on the ears.

Great work and thanks for sharing!

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
