In the spirit of protest songs.....

This is a song I wrote back in 2010. I recorded it and reworked a video to it back in 2012.

The song is called HOPE & CHANGE

from a slogan that was popular back in 2008....

In 2012 I reworked the video to include pictures I took around NC as I drove from job site to job site and saw business after business closed down where once there had been thriving businesses.

Here is the link to the mp3 version and the lyrics: MP3 & Lyrics

enjoy it.

Although it played heck with my 3 minute attention span it is a well written song none the less.

Herb, Good write and although sad, I enjoyed the video. Given what's going on in DC right now, maybe we should all stay away from politics right now. Tom

Danny... yeah, it's a tad bit more than 3 minutes

Tommy..... I agree. A music forum is not a place to discuss politics... facebook is a better place for such discussions..... but, music is just fine. Even a protest song about a politician..... just critique it from a musical/songwriter POV.

Janice & Bud..... I enjoyed writing this.... it was actually a fairly fast write.

Josie.... length matters not in this song..... it wasn't written as a commercial attempt.

Noel..... glad you liked the sound.



So... if you're "game", here's another political song from 2012..... I'm including the link in this thread as opposed to making it's own thread. I really like the lyrics and how they seemed to flow effortlessly as I was writing.....this too was a quick/easy write.... believe it or not, I actually scrapped 2 otherwise good verses for the sake of keeping this song to a "reasonable" length..... there was so much more that could have and should have been said in this song..... but 5:36 is long enough, don't cha think?


If you want to hear it and have five and a half minutes.....Leave our country alone: http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11879522

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
