Little Ol' Thing Called Love

After all this time you still play hard to get
Act as if you're leaving but it ain't happened yet
Now that you're beside me I think I'll call your bluff
Cause I'm bettin everything
on this little ol thing called love

It wouldn't really take too much to feel reassured
Seem’s like you wouldn't want me to feel so insecure
Someone's being selfish I'm not naming any names
it's not in our best interest to play these kind of games


It's the kind of competition I don't want to lose
and get emotionally disconnected with a bad case of the blues
The odds are in my favor if you believe that kind of stuff
Cause I'm bettin everything
on this little ol thing called love

After all this time you still play hard to get
Act as if you're leaving but it ain't happened yet
Now that you're beside me I think I'll call your bluff
Cause I'm bettin everything
on this little ol thing called love

SWEEEEEEET!! Tom's guitar playing is amazing. It hits me like a nice glass of Scotch whiskey, and when Janice's vocal comes in, it's time for a chaser! Really great stuff! Works on every level. I sure wish I could play guitar like that. Great job guys! Take care. Greg

This is about as real as it gets. Janice is certainly the right choice for the blues and I'll plus one all of Greg's comments.

Hi Janice and Tom,

Magnificent music! I'm a real fan of a 12/8 time signature. I love the lilt it brings to the groove. I have to say that both of you have worked this time signature with expertise and aplomb.

The song is as good as anything I've heard, ever: top class performances, shining production, incredibly well written.

Yes indeed, magnificent music smile

All the best,
Noel

Tom/Janice,

Perfect.

Not a single thing out of place. Beautiful lyrical guitar. A vocal that then TOPS it. A solid write. Excellent production. Excellent mix. Like the last one, this sounds like a well-oiled band captured at their best in the best of studios.

It doesn't get much better than this.

Perfect.

Hi Tom & Janice ...

Now, was that fabulous or what? We echo everything said by all the previous reviewers. Perfect voice and guitar for the style and the song is so well written. Dare we say "Musical masterpiece"? I think we'll take that dare ... "Musical Masterpiece"!

Super sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alyn, I consider myself very fortunate to have been able to collaborate with Bud and Janice and to now be able to call them friends. Biab has given me more than I could have ever hoped for. Thanks for your kind words. Tom

Hi Janice and Tom,

This is a very cool song! Professional sound too.
The vocals and guitar are outstanding. We also noticed that very functional B3 organ!

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!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
