The Lyrics:

SENTIMENTAL STATE OF MIND (by Dani) © Dani Lindroos 2014

Sentimental state of mind, I´m in a sentimental state of mind
´cause you´re gone, gone, gone away, I was left here behind
darling don´t know about you, but I miss you so and you know that´s true
sittin´here alone longin´for you, just for you !

You were always very kind darling, you were always very kind
that is why, why you´re on my mind, always on my mind
though you´re nowhere to find
so I´m yearnin ´all the time, yearnin´all the time, yearnin´all the time for you !

Sentimental state of mind, I´m in a sentimental state of mind
´cause you´re gone, gone, gone away, I was left here behind
dreamin´ dreamin´ alone, was it really that wrong
I think I´ll put it all down in my song, in my song

You were always very kind darling, you were always very kind
that is why, why you´re on my mind, always on my mind
though you´re nowhere to find
so I´m yearnin ´all the time, yearnin´all the time, yearnin´all the time for you
so I´m yearnin ´all the time, yearnin ´all the time, yearnin ´all the time for you
I´m in a sentimental state of mind………….

Cheers
Dani

Woooo. On this one Dani, I can close my eyes and I'm setting in a dark restaurant, my lady dressed in red, roses on a white table cloth, wine glasses - Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall come in through the front double doors ......

Cool stuff here on this song. Enjoyed it from start to finish.

Hi, Mike !:))


I am truly glad this tune
made a pleasant surprise
for you ! :)) I know you like
jazzier music and I really wanted
to catch the mood of the
song - don´t sure if I managed
to do it, though - but at least
I tried my best !:))

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Guenter !:))


You are too kind as always
but I am truly glad if you
liked the tune even without
any harmony ! I did ponder on
putting some in at places but
I refrained from it as I
wanted to depict a lone jazz singer
singing in all by himself for
a few couples in a dark restaurant
(LOL) !!!:))

Cheers
Dani

Well, Rob and Anne-Marie !:))


This may be outside the
box, but sometimes it just
feels good to be there !:))
I love to sing jazz though
I´m not doin´it right ! (LOL)!
I should use less vibrato and
sing over the bars more than I do,
but nonetheless, I do thank
you for your kind comments !

Cheers
Dani

Hi, Josie !:))

....and thank you
for your most kind
words and well wishes !:))
I also hope that our preps
will work out well. I´ve
heard that we are expecting at
least two barbershop choruses
from Sweden, so it will be
a "helluva" singing weekend
with lots of groups ringing chords
all around !:))

Cheers
Dani

PG Music News
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."
