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 am truly glad this tune
made a pleasant surprise
for you ! :)) I know you like
jazzier music and I really wanted

to do it, though - but at least
I tried my best !:))

Cheers

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

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.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

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.
