Songs to add to the Band-in-a-Box Song Titles database

About the Song Titles Database


The Song Titles Browser is a popular feature that was added to Band-in-a-Box in version 2017. It allows you to..

  • Type in the name of a familiar song and find a style with similar feel and tempo
  • Browse and filter/search the huge list of popular song titles. For example, filter by a certain artist, and then sort all the songs by tempo, key, feel, time signature. Or, filter by a certain decade like 1940's.

Instructions for posting in this forum


  • This forum is a place for people to suggest songs to add to the Band-in-a-Box Song Title Browser.
  • If there are popular songs that you think should be in our list, but are missing, please post them here, and we will add them!
  • You can include multiple songs in a single forum post.
  • The songs should not already present in the song titles database in Band-in-a-Box 2017. You can easily see that by typing the title in using the StylePicker, or the dedicated Titles Browser.
  • Feel free to add personal comments.
  • We don't want to add 'obscure' songs that you think are awesome, but aren't known by a wide audience. The test is, would a person familiar with the genre and the decade recognize this song?

Band-in-a-Box® - Freezing Tracks

Like what you hear in Band-in-a-Box®? Make sure to Freeze the track(s) or song! Once frozen, it won't be regeneraged or change when you play it again - and your choice isn't final, since you can unfreeze them just as easily:
-press the blue snowflake button within the track name of the mixer window
-press the blue snowflake button within the expanded toolbar of the program (Ctrl + T will swap between the two toolbar views), and select the track(s)

Note: If you want to force Band-in-a-Box® to generate tracks without adjusting the Freeze settings, hold down the Shift key as you press the [Generate and Play] button (the fly-by hint will remind you of that) or choose the menu command Play | Play Special | Generate (even if tracks are frozen).

To learn more about freezing your Band-in-a-Box® tracks or songs, visit Chapter 5: Playing Songs | Freezing tracks of our Online Manual.

With Band-in-a-Box®, Making Music Has Never Been Easier!


We came across this recent post, Music Making Software: Record, Edit, Create and Share Your Own Songs, which includes Band-in-a-Box® in their list of software you'll need to record and edit your own songs!

One of our favourite products, and one that doesn’t seem to come up much in discussions about music making software, is Band-In-A-Box from PG Music. This is probably the longest established and certainly one of the most popular music making software packages of all time. Already packed with features, the latest version has added functions that in our opinion make this an essential buy for musicians in any genre, for keyboard players, guitarists, singers, in fact any musician looking for an outstanding tool to make the most of their creative ideas.
