Started this song back in 50/90 2013, but I ran out of steam so I finished writing and recording it for FAWM 2014. Probably still need to do some cleanup (as always!). I used Floyd jane's handclaps real drum user track -- quite nice!

Shout It Out
© Emmrich 2014

(verse)
She wears a yellow dress
she smiles like the sun
and when you think you've
figured her out
she surprises you again
with the little things she does

(chorus)
and I've got to shout
there's no hiding inside
she makes life fun
and I haven't shouted out
for a long, long time

(verse)
She picks up the leaves
been scattered by the breeze
red and green and gold and brown
she throws them in the wind
and spreads her radiating grin

(chorus again)

Gotta shout it out
shout it out
Gotta shout it out
shout it out

(verse)
now that I've been exposed
to her charms and her ways
I never wanna go back
to those gray days

(chorus again)

Gotta shout it out
shout it out
Gotta shout it out
shout it out

(outro)
and I haven't shouted out
for a long, long time

Nice. And it sticks with you. Listened, went and had a cup of joe, came back to the mac and still had it on my mind. Cool. And, yup, the claps sit nicely. Glad you revived this one!

Kevin,

Catchy song with a very cool vocal and arrangement. One thing you might consider is to put it more in the "indie" sound pocket so it's a wee bit drier on the instruments with more raw edge. To me, it's a tad smooth sounding for the style. Not a criticism in any way - only a consideration or not...<grin>

I'm loving it here.


Josie

Hello Kevin,

This is a very cozy song.
In the beginning of the song it sounds a little bit like some of the real tracks are not completely in sync with each other?
Anyways, very well done and very nice vocals!

And now we are going to search for Floyd's handclaps here on this site.

Regards,
R & AM

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
