Haven't been able to listen to much here lately - busy flogging covers for the punters.

Just a little song.
All BIAB, except for some strings.

Gabrielle

©2014 Robert Randall Burke/BMI


Gabrielle lives in a cottage by the sea
Gabrielle isn't the girl she used to be
Gabrielle
When will the memory set you free
Gabrielle?


Gabrielle, now that the trees have turned to gold
Gabrielle, will you release the pain you hold?
Gabrielle, will you find shelter from the cold?
Gabrielle.


You can't live your life by living in the past
The morning sun can't penetrate the shadows sorrows cast
Open up your windows
Open up your heart
Your lines have all been written
You've got to play your part
Gabrielle.


Gabrielle lives in a cottage by the sea
Gabrielle isn't the girl she used to be
Gabrielle
When will the memory set you free
Gabrielle?

It’s all been said!

What a beautiful song with great lyrics, a strong backing track and a fantastic vocal that was perfectly mixed.

This is one great song.

Love the dark, minor mood and the way it works with the lyrics. Great vocal performance! Really good lyrics. They get the point and the mood across without over explaining-a little mystery is great. Love this! Take care. Greg

Great song. Nice job on the recording. I like that it stayed acoustic through out and was driven by a strong piano with backing strings to fill it in. I saw that there was additional tracks but I didn't hear them, and that is good. Piano, cello, and strings work well for this.

The vocals set well in the mix and have a good quality to them. They fit this nicely.

Loved the story in the song. She seems so sad and lonely. I'm curious, as to the event that made her that way. The lyric never gave a clue. To me, that's the key bit of info lacking in this story. A short bridge of a line or two could easily provide that key which would unlock and explain the reason Gabbie is like she is now. It could be from the death of a loved one, or spurned by a lover, etc....

I really like the song. Good job.

Like Greg alluded to and I've said it here before....don't tell me everything....let me connect a few dots....let me sink in the song and imagine what might have happened. And this songs works perfectly from that perspective. It adds an edge to the story. Yes many things could have lead to her fall but by stating the cause you run the risk of perhaps losing a listener who may not understand, disagree with, can't relate to, etc., etc., the reason for her fall. The way you've written it the listener can insert their feelings of what life might throw at them and result in a downfall.

OK, enough pontificating. The lyric is supported by a fine vocal/melody and wrapped up in a classy arrangement and mix. Well done!!

Hi Bob ...

It's been a while since we listened to you. This is wonderful! Sounds like a super soundtrack to us. The vocal is perfect and passionate and the instrument selection was perfect, as was the production.

We enjoyed this very much! Best to you ...

Dani,

Thanks for listening.

Danny, Jessi, ROG, Charlie, Mario, Greg, Scott, Herb, Guenter, RichMac, Al & Di,

Thanks for the listen and the kind words.

Janice & Bud,

I believe that some songs should be enigmatic. This is one of them. Funny thing, I wanted to sing it in French, but I don't speak French. grin
Thanks for the kind remarks.


Regards,

Bob

Tommy,

Thanks for the kind words.

Oleman,

We've been very busy playing lately, so the recording thing has taken a back seat. Thanks for listening.


Regards,

Bob

Bob,

Excellent. Love it. Very Jimmy Webb of you...

One listen and it stays with you. People have a tendency to overlook the fact that a memorable (or catchy) melody is every bit as important to writing as an interesting lyric. You never overlook that...

I like the mystery. I like the production - nice piano, nice subtle accordion. You sing with conviction.

An enjoyable listen, the instrumentation kept it interesting. I haven't used the accordion yet, I might have to sneak that in somehow. Nice production and mix, too.
Is there enough "story" here? I think for this genre/style, it is not as important as if it were a country tune or something like that. The words all "sound" good to me.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
