Darling I Love You So (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 2014

It´s been a while
since I saw your smile
that smile that changed my life, and changed my style
where can I go,
I´ll go both hi and I´ll go low
just to show, just to show , just to show my love for you, you know
you know

I´ve come around
to the same ol´ground
where we used to go, so long ago
and I wish you could be
I wish you could be here with me
darling again, darling again
walking hand in hand like we did back then
back then

ref:
You´ve been away for so long, for a time so long
and all I can do is sitting here singing this song

You´re on my mind
´cause you´re one of a kind
you´re so sweet and so kind just so rare to find
I hope you´ll be mine
that really would be great and fine
darling you know, darling you know
darling I really love you so,
love you so
darling you know, darling I love you so

How do you spell smooth? D-A-N-I !!!

Good song and production. I'm sure you'll be as successful writing and singing about 'found' love as you do about 'lost' love when you one day find that 'right' one. I always enjoy your submissions.

Charlie

Hi Dani,

You are SUCH a romantic!

The instruments are mixed well. The vocal was a bit hard to hear clearly at the beginning - not sure if I could pick out why...

Hi, Guenter !:))

Thank you so much for

of songs !:))

Hi, Floyd !:))

Yes, you are right, I am a romantic
and a big one too !:))(chuckle) !:))
I do not think I have been so
romantic all my life, it is
something that has grown on me
after my hectic work life !
I did try and take up the
lyrics in the beginning, for some
reason it is difficult to
extract the words "a while" !
I tried to do it by increasing
treble a bit and by lowering
the synth during the time those words
are sung !:)) The altered version is
in it´s normal place in the header !

Floyd, thank you for your most kind
words !:))

Cheers
Dani

Another sweet song!! If I heard one of your songs on an acoustic guitar, I would never think to use a pedal steel but it works very well. I always enjoy your songs for their sentiment and spirituality. And as you know I like the retro sound! Vocals are sweet as usual. Keep em coming-I`ll always be listening. Take care. Greg

Hi Dani,

And old friend of mine once wrote the following sentence in one of his lyrics:
'the perfect song is never really sung'

But that doesn't keep us from trying does it?
Your attempts are getting better and better, and yes like Floyd said:
you're a true romantic!
Very nice, looking forward to the next one!

Regards,
Rob

Hi, Greg !

Thank you for your most kind
comments ! :)) made me feel good !:))
The pedal, yes, it had to be dimmed
in a few spots not to override the
chords but I think I managed to
fix it ok. Retro, yes, I guess
I am a retro guy so the sound
I produce is retro too (chuckle) !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hey Dani,

"Some people want to fill the world with silly love songs and what's wrong with that, I'd like to know 'cause here I go again..." (quote from Sir Paul's Silly Love Songs lyrics).

I always enjoy going where that romantic heart of yours takes me in your songs. Nice big smooth sounding production on this one too.


Josie

Hi, Josie !


Thank you so much for your
most kind words ! Maybe Sir Paul
is right, maybe this really is
silly ? The problem is that
I write the way I feel and
if it makes me silly I guess it´s okay with me ! (chuckle) !
I am old enough to make a fool of
myself without being afraid of
making a fool of myself !:)) (giggle) !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi Dani,

I just realised that I haven't yet heard this one! You're a such a productive songwriter that it's hard for me to keep up!!!

There's nothing wrong with writing a good, old-fashioned love song. It's what makes the world go around. I always enjoy your music. Always.

A great listen,
Noel

A Look Back... Band-in-a-Box® 2015 NAMM Demonstration #TBT

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows users - update for FREE today!

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

This free update also includes the most recent build of our DAW Plugin (3.9.12).

Learn more about this free update and download it today.

Ordering Your Band-in-a-Box® is Easy!

Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

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.
