My wife was complaining that she didn't look like she did when we first were married. That was the inspiration for this song. It came together quickly, and I was able to record it in time to give it to her for Christmas. Hope you enjoy.

I used Country 90's Ballad at a tempo of 72 with live guitar and vocal added.

And by the time you get to 46 years, like us, the sentiment will remain. She's still the beauty I met in 1965 and wed in '66.
Wonderful sentiment - every word is true.
I hope your wife enjoyed the Song - WE did!
cheers
Ian

Brian...

This is the first time we've listened to you. What a great song! I'll bet your wife loved it...we sure did. Nice chord arrangement, particularly on the chorus. That was a great listen!

We're working on one with a similar theme called "Not A Day Past Lovely". It's been on the back burner for a couple of months but might bring to the front after listening to this fabulous song.

Very, very nice...we truly enjoyed it! Best to you...

Al & Di

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments! I'm particularly happy with this song because it came together so rapidly. Song writing doesn't come easily to me. I usually struggle months between songs. I wrote this in less than a day, had the BIAB tracks together in a few days, and the final mix done within two weeks of the inspiration.

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
