What is this, a Dutch song?
Yes, I decided to post a song in my native language for a change laugh
The song itself is actually quite old. The original recording was done on a Fostex 4 track cassette recorder in 1994.
I recorded this new 2014 Band in a Box version 2 days ago. The vocals were recorded with an AKG D 310 microphone.
The relatively short time it took to create this (approximately a total of 8 hours), and the improved quality is one of the many examples of the power of Band in a Box.
As a comparison I included the link to the original version at the end of this post.
If you're not Dutch, Belgian or German the lyrics probably won't make much sense. Therefore I included an English translation.

Nog 1x met jou

Style: _kebmo.sty crossover (85 rs)
Real Tracks :
379 bass electric country doubletime ev 088
381 guitar electric rhythm syncopated sugar ev 102
382 guitar slide background blues ev 085
1582 guitar high strung acoustic rhythm folkie 16th
1608 guitar high strung acoustic rhythm pop 16th
1002 guitar 12 string acoustic rhythm classic rock ev 16
689 organ B3 background pop ev 85
2203 guitar electric Pop promise Brent (soloist)
MIDI track: gm2 6-3 ep legend
real drums: Nashville pop 16

Original 1994 version

lyrics:

Nog een keer met jou

Hee, ga je niet mee? Ik wacht al zo lang
Woorden tekort
Nog een keer met jou. Zoals het toen was
Zolang het er was

Want eenmaal alleen loop ik door een lege straat
En ik zie mezelf als een ander

Soms denk ik hoe ik ook praat. Het lijkt steeds te laat
Om jou aandacht te vangen
Voor het eerst in zes jaar. Lijkt het zo waar
Ik kan jou niet meer vervangen

Maar ik neem met me mee wat ik niet vergeten kan
En ik zie mezelf als geen ander

Eenmaal weg gekeken. Is eenmaal laten gaan
Maar je denkt toch telkens weer
Dat dan een ander je ziet staan
Zeg nu niet nee

Je was heel dichtbij. Maar toch niet van mij
Je hebt me niets willen zeggen
Toen was ik de koning te rijk. Maar nu ik terugkijk
Hoef je me niets meer uit te leggen

Ik neem met me mee wat ik niet vergeten kan
En ik zie mezelf als een ander
Als een ander

English translation:

One more time with you

hey, won't you come along? I've been waiting for so long
lost for words
just one more time with you. like it was back then.
as long as we were

cause once I'm alone I walk the empty streets
and I feel like someone else

sometimes no matter what I say, it always seems too late
to get your attention
for the first time in six years it seems so real
there's no replacing you

but I'm taking along all the things I can't forget
and I feel like everyone else

The minute I looked away is the moment you were gone
but you always think someone else will notice you
please don't say no

but I'm taking along all the things I can't forget
and I feel like everyone else

You were very close still you weren't mine
you didn't want to say
back then I felt like a king. but looking back now
there's no need to explain

but I'm taking along all the things I can't forget
and I feel like someone else
like someone else


Hope you like it,
regards,
Rob

both versions are excellent but I prefer the 1994 version
having used a TEAC 4 track cassette recorder myself.

Wonderful song

I really like this, especially the intriguing changes and the vocals, you have an excellent voice.
And well done on making such a finely engineered mixture of RealTracks.

Hi Rob. I really enjoyed this. Being from South African and Afrikaans being similar to Dutch I could pick up a few of the lyrics but was glad of the translation! Isn't it interesting what you can create in 8 hours using BIAB. I enjoyed both versions.

Nice production. You always do a good job and demonstrate a remarkable skill for choosing the right chord progressions and the right instruments to fit with your song.

Rob,

Excellent choice of acoustic guitars - and an excellent job of mixing them. There is a great energy in this. Good mix. Nice melody and vocal...

Very well done. Enjoyed it.

Hi Rob & Anne-Marie,

Terrific song and production. You have an excellent grasp of the powers and capabilities of BIAB. And you guys are are such good songwriters and vocalists. I (Alan) speak fairly good German and given the subtle similarities of the two languages, I was able to understand parts of the Dutch.

Very nicely done. We totally enjoyed our listen. great song!!!!!!

Alan & Di

A good song is a good song regardless of what language it is sung!

This is a very good song!

Thanks everyone for your very kind comments. It was fun to post something in my own language for a change. In a way it's easier for us to compose in our own language, however we love the English language. We find it more subtle and melodic in a way.

Regards,
Rob

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
