Lyrics:

GONE ARE THOSE GOLDEN DAYS (by Dani)

I´d love to travel back in time
to those times that were so good to us
but gone are those golden days
they cannot be retrieved anymore

My only option left
is to dream myself away

Crying myself to sleep
is the only way to see you dear
gone are those golden days
of love and tender days of yore
days that will not come no more
days of song and rhyming lore

Oh, my love I miss you so
Is there no way you´d return to me
gone are those golden days
please, find a way back again

My only option left
is to dream myself away

Brown eyes, chestnut hair
no one else can miss you more than I
wonderful a smile and features so fair
in my dreams I still can see

I´d love to travel back in time
to those times that were so good to us
but gone are those golden days
days of love so true
days of loving you
only you

© Dani Lindroos 2014

Hi Dani,

nice chord changes and good singing.
The drum breaks distracted me a little.

Dani,

Very good mix on this. I had some difficulty following the structure of the song - thought there could have been a little more change in feel between parts... but perhaps that would not be what you wanted to accomplish...

The drums breaks certainly were interesting! I don't think I've heard anyone else do that! Cool idea.

That one'll rip the paint right off of your heart. Sad but full of genuine emotion. Thanks for the chance to listen.

Well my friend, you produced another fine tune. interesting drums breaks, I almost venture to say that they are from two different drums RD's ( I might be wrong), but never the less, it worked fine. Thanks for sharing.

Mike B.

I enjoyed your song. It is well written and I certainly agree with Janice & Bud that you write very genuine and emotional lyrics. Your soft vocals work well with your musical choices. For me, this song portrays your emotional attachment to your happier times in the past, your present day longing to have those feelings of happiness again and the aching heart that so misses the one that has gone. That is a lot of directions to take the listener on in a 3 minute song but you did a good job with accomplishing it. Good job.

Hi Dani. Lovely voice, feeling and intimate sound. Enjoyed the percussion.
Also had a few years with the barbershoppers. How about doing a song about them? Cheers.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
