Well you two managed to get this old guy to listen all the way through his first euro-tech song!

And he discovered some great harmony and fine guitar along the way.

Gotta love the ha-ha-ha's

And a classical piece as the inspiration? How cool is that? VERY

Breaking rules and breaking out from norms is fun!! Great work.

Bud

Hi R & AM,

Nice children's song. With all the repetition I could imagine younger kids having great fun singing along.

Hi Noel,

Thanks for your nice comments and the links.
I know most of these songs, but only knew of some that they had a classical basis.
By the way, Yvonne Keeley is Dutch. She used to sing with her sister Patricia Paay, who is still a tv personality here.

I don't know if you listened to our "3 Minute Waltz", for which I used Chopin's Minute Waltz. It was one of the first songs we posted on this forum. In case you missed it, this is the link:
http://youtu.be/nnA57mnBUvk

At the moment I'm busy with more compositions of Grieg and Chopin.
It takes more time though, than let BiaB do the work. But the result is something else than the traditional verse, verse, chorus, solo, verse, chorus.
And there's a lot of classical music I like, so why not use it?
Thanks again for your encouraging words!

Anne-Marie

Hi Josie,

Yes, as we stated in our post, it might be a song that is appreciated more by younger people. I would like to hear children sing it, maybe in a school musical. In our country that is the way to end primary school. The children that leave primary school to go on with their education, perform a "self made (mostly by the teachers) musical", for which well known songs are used.

Regards,
Anne-Marie

Hi Bud and Janice,

Well... that's quite a compliment!
So it's not only the young ones who like this song! Or should I say "young at heart" in this case?
As I like some classical music very much, I'll go on using it for our songs.
Thanks for your kind words.

Anne-Marie

I too made the connection to ABBA and Eurotech.... neither of which are on my list of favorite things.

I appreciate the work you put into this.

Good job.

Hi Herb,
Well.... actually I think ABBA's voices are nice, but I must admit, I don't have any of their records.
And as for the Eurotech sound... I think it suited the original best, but I don't have any of that type of music either.
So next time I'll compose a song that's more like my other stuff, I promise wink

Hi 90 dB,
As a matter of fact.... I've tried. But the Sabre Dance consists of an enormous amount of the same chords. It is the very fast way in which they are played, which makes the melody so exciting.
However, I am busy with 2 classical pieces (Chopin and Grieg), so if you like classical music.....
But there are people who hate classical music to be turned into modern music!

Regards,
Anne-Marie

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
