I wrote and recorded this one yesterday for Di. We recently got word our 20 year-old granddaughter has cancer and the out look isn't good. We're pretty shaken up right now and Di needed something comforting ... this is the best I can do with little to no time. Wrote it and recorded it all within 2 hours. The vocals are all one and done ... no time for redos. Will take a listen to you folks as we can ... will probably be kind of spotty with our appearances here for a while .... thanks for understanding. Anyway, this is what I gave her for comfort.

Come To Me Softly Tonight
(c) 2014 Alan D. David, BMI

(v1)
Come to me softly, let me feel you near
I'll say the things I know you love to hear
How much I need you, and you're my guiding light
Come to me softly tonight

(v2)
Come to me softly, let me kiss your lips
And feel the tingle, within your fingertips
You are the alter that makes my world so right
Come to me softly tonight

REFRAIN
You are the power that lifts me when I'm down
Without you I'm frail and weak
Before your love I was lost but now I'm found
Yes I am strong I'm no longer meek

(v3)
Come to me softly, let me feel your love
Your smile is softer than the cooing of the dove
When I'm confused you give me wisdom's sight
Come to me softly tonight

REFRAIN
You are the power that lifts me when I'm down
Without you I'm frail and weak
Before your love I was lost but now I'm found
Yes I am strong I'm no longer meek

(v3)
Come to me softly, let me feel your love
Your smile is softer than the cooing of the dove
When I'm confused you give me wisdom's sight
Come to me softly tonight
Come to me softly to night

Very pretty ballad! I like the relatively sparse piano/strings arrangement. Nice work, as usual! Take care. Greg

Hi Again, Greg!

I tried to keep it relatively simple for two reasons. First, I didn't want to steal away from the lyric with a bunch of fancy music. Second, my time is very limited right now. It took me about 45 minutes to write the lyric and the other approximate two hours was composing the music and recording everything.

So glad you liked it. Thanks for letting me know!

Alan (and Di)

Band-in-a-Box® Country Music Add-ons!

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

You might not think of Band-in-a-Box® as a country music making machine, but you'd be surprised... there are OVER 850 Country RealTracks available!

See (hear?) the Country songs created by Band-in-a-Box® users when you check out the Band-in-a-Box® Radio playlists Country/EZ Listening/Folk 1 and Country/EZ Listening/Folk 2.

Feeling inspired to create your own Country song in Band-in-a-Box®? Pop into the RealTracks Picker and create your own custom country band by filtering for "Country" or choose an existing Country style within the StylePicker Window by choosing a "Country" Filter String (from the drop down menu).

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 French for Mac is Here!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 apporte plus de 50 nouvelles fonctionnalités ! Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks. Le nouveau navigateur de fonctions permet à l'utilisateur nouveau ou "tête en l'air" de trouver et d'utiliser facilement la plupart des fonctionnalités/raccourcis/documents à partir d'une seule fenêtre. L'égalisation du tempo permet de changer un morceau rubato enregistré en un tempo fixe. L'étirement audio temps/pitch a été amélioré (Elastique inclus). Il y a des améliorations un peu partout dans le SongPicker, les Intros automatiques avec Basse/drums ou drums seuls, l'extension du nombre de titres avec + 3.400 titres nouveaux, MusicXML, la guitare avec vues "gaucher" et "élève", la fonction glisser-déposer, l'affichage multi-fenêtres de l'Assistant Accord Audio et bien plus encore !

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
