Friendship (by Dani)

Friends, how wonderful to have such friends like you
friends, I know will be there to see me through
when I am feeling blue

You´re always there
to comfort me and share
my good times too

Friends, I don´t know how I could have done it at all
friends, you kept me going though everything seemed
black and I was near to fall

You´re always there
to comfort me and share
my good times too

How precious isn´t friendship when it´s true?
I hope you all have felt true friendship too?
yes I do, yes I do

Solo

You´re always there
to comfort me and share
my good times too

How precious isn´t friendship when it´s true?
I hope you all have felt true friendship too?
yes I do, I really do

"It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I always think of the above quote when it comes to old friends.

Treasure them my friend. You are blessed to both have and appreciate them. Nice tribute and well done all the way around.

Thanks for doing my request Dani. Great sentiment and very smooth. I like the sort of chorus sound. I found the fellowship among the barbershoppers quite amazing. Cheers.

Hey Dani,

Here's the right song for a magnetic guy that attracts friends like a magnet attracts iron filings. Trademark harmonies, good changes, all the right musical stuff. And a transcending theme. I know that "What The World Needs Now is Love, Sweet Love ..." but in today's world of daily disasters - mud slides, disappearing airliners, vanishing Nigerian schoolgirls, tribal warfare, rampaging shooters - even just a little more Friendship would help.

I enjoyed that chord changes. It's been a long time since I used the SAX.... it sounded good.

Hi, DA !

Thank you for your most kind

not be so difficult to write
a song about ? :))I guess we

I can reveal that it was

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
