I have been out of pocket for a few months now, due to work and health reasons. But tomorrow is my youngest grandchild's birthday. She will be 2 years old. I actually wrote this song 3 years ago, but I have redone it for this occasion. All the instruments are RT/RD, with some strings, organ, and percussion thrown in by me. I hope you enjoy it!

In Between The Rhythm And The Rhyme

Here is the RT/RD info...

And here are the lyrics...

In Between The Rhythm And The Rhyme
Copyright Stephen W. Young

There's a little girl making eyes at me
She's wanting my attention
Wanting me to see what she can do
Yesterday when she waa two

On a Saturday at the football field
A pretty girl is cheering
And every now and then her team will win
Yesterday when she was ten

In between the rhythm and the rhyme
There's so much more to life if you just take the time
I wouldn't trade for all the things that you can find
In between the rhythm and the rhyme

A young man smiles nervously at me
He's wanting my permission
To take away my pretty little girl
And turn around my whole world

In between the rhythm and the rhyme
There's so much more to life if you just take the time
I wouldn't trade for all the things that you can find
In between the rhythm and the rhyme
(Repeat Chorus)

A little girl is making eyes at me
She's wanting my attention
Wanting me to see what she can do
I can't believe she's almost two

===

Have a great day!

Steve

I've also reached the point in life I am enjoying grandchildren so this song reverberated with me. Very well written and performed and it held my attention from beginning to end. At 2:12 point in the song where you begin the line, " I wouldn't trad a thing..." my eyes drifted down the Soundcloud page to another song title that read " A million moons over Hawaii". That struck me as an appropriate and quite coincidental metaphor for that particular moment in the song as I immediately said to myself " I know I wouldn't trade my grandchildren for a million moons over Hawaii.

Loved your song.

Charlie

Steve welcome back and I pray that your health issues are gone.

You really hit the jackpot for your encore! This is a fantastic song. Your mix, instrumentation, vocals, and your lyrics are spot on!

I can relate to part of this song as our baby girl turned 34 last May! But no grandchildren as all three of our kids are single. I come from a long line of single people on both sides of my family! I am the weird one..........in more ways than one!

Steve, always glad to see you around here. I, like the others have grandchildren that are growing up too fast. I hope we all can slow down enough to enjoy them. I remember this one from the first time around. This one has your signature stellar mix and the vocals are nothing short of fantastic. All the best, Tom

What they all said and what a hook! No grandkids here but I see the joy they bring friends and family all the time. Just a fine production in ALL aspects.

Steve,

Your productions are always so interesting. Being able to fit a SW guitar solo - a waltz, no less - into all the EV is impressive. The "hint of wedding organ" with a single chord - also impressive!

Your vocals (and harmonies) are always so "in the pocket" and "comfortable".

Loved the ending.

Always glad to see your name pop up! Come hang out with us when you can...

Hi Steve,

Welcome back!

I clearly remember listening to this song when you posted it before. I can't believe it was 3 years ago! I'm definitely feeling old now.

It's really great that you're posting again. When it comes to ideas about arrangement and production, you are the leader in this forum! I love hearing what you do and it inspires me no end. This latest post of yours is just as inspirational. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.

All the best,
Noel

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
