I'm not much of a dancer.
My wife always gives me "that look"...

Oh well...


THE DANCE OF A MAN IN LOVE

just because i've got two left feet
doesn't mean that i can't dance
i may be a simple man
doesn't mean i don't feel romance
fred astaire and arthur murray
ain't got nothing on me
when i dance the dance of a man in love
and let my heart take the lead

i don't know the cotton-eyed joe
two steps are too many for me
it's all i can do to walk the line
so dancing one ain't meant to be
i don't need to spin, slap my boots and slide
or count to four while watching my feet
when i dance the dance of a man in love
and let my heart take the lead

(bridge)
we'll just stand in one place, hold each other tight
while the world goes waltzing by
sway to and fro while the stars do-si-do
and the moon does an allemande right
it's all just one big dance, you and me in the middle
love's the only music we need
when i dance of a man in love
and let my heart take the lead

just because i've got two left feet
doesn't mean that we can't dance...

Man, you are at it AGAIN!!
Another superb country ballad.
As I am one of those guys who just cannot dance - my kids call it "Dad Dancing" and you can guess what it looks like - this is going to be my anthem to Val.
A great production and there you go again slipping in those nice m7b5 chords just when I least expect it.
Wonderful stuff, Floyd.
Thank you
Cheers
ian

Floyd, another keeper, my friend!

You definitely are a talented wordsmith. Thanks for posting this work. We all learn by your excellent example.

If you're anything like me, you were too busy making the music for other people to dance to to learn how myself. (That's my story and I'm sticking with it).

Floyd, nice number, liked the strings in the intro and throughout. Great lyrics. All put together with a smooth country feel. Thanks for sharing.

Floyd, This is what you call smart country. Great lyrics that tell the story and make you think at the same time. I liked the observations on line dancing. I've always watched from the perspective of the bandstand and thought there was something very odd about that craze. Like Ian that one chord f#m made me sit up a little straighter and listen a little harder. Brilliant change. The only thing I didn't like was it ended too soon. That may be because I liked it so much. Another super job.

Every time I think you can't get any better, you up and do this. Great work, love the back ground strings, so well mastered, and as always the vocal is outstanding! Thanks for sharing!

Cool tune. I like the chord you use in the 6th line in the verse. Most folks would not have considered that. Nice choice.


And yeah...BTW, I don't dance either. Not in any semblance of normality.

Hi Floyd,

you did it again. Great composition and performance.
Just beautiful. I can't get enough of those strings.

Hi, Floyd !:))


How on earth did you manage to get
two left feet ? .....(chuckle)!
Well, honestly, this is one of your
best without doubt ! I just love
the variety and how nice you get
everything to blend .....!:))


Cheers
Dani

Really nice work, as usual Floyd!! Someone else pointed out an unconventional chord change. Definitely caught my attention but worked very well musically. Beautiful concept, beautifully delivered!! Take care. Greg

Floyd,

I used to think I could dance but it was just the beer talking.

As guitarhacker wrote that chord change in line 6 is unexpected and perfect.

I do like the lines:
Love's the only music we need
when i dance of a man in love
and let my heart take the lead

Another Floyd masterpiece laugh

Alyn

Tom - don't you wish "smart country" ruled the airwaves? Actually, I always thought Line Dancing made a lot of sense. You don't need a partner and everyone's your partner (and it's easy enough that even two-left-footer can do it). Women don't need their husbands to dance - and they can dance with their friends - which they'd rather do anyway... smile Thanks for the nice words...

Robert - very nice of you to say. I appreciate it.

Bob - are we getting close to Dylan's 41? Talk about resting on your laurels!!!!

Josie - thanks.

Herb - thanks. F#m7b5

Guenter - Thank you. If the strings are "right enough" for you too mention, then I've have to say I'm pleased...

Dani - okay, buddy, you are going to have to come up with a new line... you've used that "one of your best" far too many times smile
Thank you for that!

Steve - thanks.

Greg - appreciate it. every now and then you just have to throw in something a bit different, dontcha?

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
