I actually wrote and recorded this quite a few years ago but I drag it out every year around this time and share it. This year I thought I would have some fun with BIB and I re-recorded it with the intention of making it 100% BIB but I couldn't help myself and added some background strings and a live guitar lead.

Happy Holidays to all of you and thanks for a wonderfull year of music and knowledge. The talent here is amazing.

Juking tune.... it has lots of good energy and lots to like about it.

On my cans it sounds a bit pushed....almost like it's over compressed.... or on the edge of distortion .... very slight not overtly noticeable.

Love the modulation and the demodulation of keys, not something you hear too much of these days.

Cool sounding guitar part.


Man .... you don't mind changing keys one bit.....

Nice job too on the lyrics....

All around good job.

Ya got me rocking rickey! And it's kind of late here in my neck of the woods, so that's saying something in itself.

Very enjoyable listen.

Later,

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone. It really amazed me how I could fold this song into BIB with so little trouble. And to put it into a "out of the box" arrangement was really a nice suprise.

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
