And here are the lyrics:

SINGING THE BLUES AWAY (by Dani)
Still waiting for that sign from you
and I hope that you are allright, my dear?
I am longing for your touch again
and that´s why I am blue, oh so blue

Trying to sing, singing the blues away
singing the blues, singing the blues away
trying to sing, singing the blues away
singing the blues, singing the blues away

When will we meet again, my love ?
You know I´m yearning for you, night and day
I´ll love you till the end of days
till the end of days

Trying to sing, singing the blues away
singing the blues, singing the blues away
trying to sing, singing the blues away
singing the blues, singing the blues away

solo

Trying to sing, singing the blues away
singing the blues, singing the blues away
trying to sing, singing the blues away
singing the blues, singing the blues away
away

Dani, another nice sensitive number, with lots of feeling, and we understand the meaning behind the song.

Really enjoyable. My only comment is that the lyrics might have become slightly too repetitive.

Great Bossa feel and tempo.

Cheers

Trevor

Hi Dani...

Very nice! loved the easy flow and "dreamy" aura. And Dean did a real nice job on the guitar.

We love Bossa Nova and this is a real nice example of the genre. Good job!

Dani,

+1 to Tom's remarks - nice mix, placement, vocals.. Dean's solo works nicely. When the vocal begins it is a little low and gets lost (just a bit) in the mix. By the chorus, it's good and from there on out, no problem.

As Trevor says, there is repetition in the chorus. You could break that (if you chose) by changing your 3rd line - a personal choice, though...

Very enjoyable.

Hi, Floyd !:))


Thank you for your most kind
and constructive comments !:))
You are perfectly right and I
agree with you on all points !
I was going to lift the start
vocals but then I discovered
that I did not have Dean´s solo
separately so for the moment I
cannot do it !:))You´re right
with the repetitiveness too. That
was just my laziness (chuckle) especially
as I have already wrote another song (lol) !:))


Cheers
Dani

Hi, Guenter !:))

You are way too kind in
your comments but I do
appreciate it truly much !:))
Yes, the emotion is there.
In fact I have difficulties
in writing anything that does not
involve my dear late wife Beni
as she was my everything and I miss
her just too much !:))


Cheers
Dani

Very sweet and laidback. Nice summery sort of sound. Would like the lyrics clearer. Nice sentiment!

Hi, Rich !:))

You are also too kind
but it felt good to get
your kind comments !:))

I am afraid I cannot do
very much to get the lyrics
clearer at this moment,
I could remix but then I do not
have Dean´s solo separately so
if I can get it I might try !:))

Cheers
Dani

I couldn't say it any better. "Dreamy aura" is a great description. It shimmers. Very nice.

Hey Dani, nice work!! You really have your own style. I hear some retro in it, which I love. I am more into the old sound than the new sound. Keep it up! Take care. Greg

Excellent arrangement. I would never guess only four or five RT's because there is such a big sound.
Dean's guitar work is crisp as are the vocals. Sounds like an orchestra and a choir.

I got a real 'The 5th Dimension' vibe from this.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
