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.

I tried my best !:))

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

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows

Make sure to check out the latest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows review from Sound-Guy (Dennis) at www.gearslutz.com: click here.

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.
