Hello everyone,

Our new song:

Dream that's gone

I wrote this song when I was 19. It was one of the first songs I wrote when I started playing guitar. Not exactly top notch songwriting in those days, but with Band in a Box in the game and Anne-Marie on backing vocals I can now finally get away with it :-) (almost).

Style is _SHINSYN.STY (Praise&Worship Shing w Synth Pad)

RealTracks in style: 1255:Bass, Electric, PopShiningA-B Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 1264:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm PopShiningA-B Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 1259:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm PopShiningRockA-B Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 1267:Synth Pad, PopShiningA-B Ev 120
RealTracks in song: 1705:Guitar, Electric, Soloist CountryBrent Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 377:Guitar, Resonator, Background Trav Ev 088
RealDrums in style: PraiseWorshipShine^03-a:Kick, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat Slightly Open

Thanks for listening, any comments are welcome.

Regards,
Rob

Lyrics:

come see through the rain
don't look back to the goal
the answer my friend

and the places you've been
they mark the end of the goal
and never trying again

it's the innocence I know,
of a shining face that's turned to wise
why keep on searching for a dream
mmmm dream, dream that's gone

hard to live from day to day
though it seemed so right in the past
for my present has gone

could love ever come again
it seems unreal but so they say
it'll happen now and then

it takes a while until you see
just what it is you miss
why keep on searching for a dream
mmmm dream, dream that's gone

This is a good tune. Nice lyrics and melody. Great job on the harmonies.

I like it! It really captures a sad, wistful feeling.

And, excellent job on the production and vocal - as usual.

Darned you folk setting the bar so high for us mere mortals! grin

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Rob and Anne Marie,

What a video to compliment a very enjoyable song.
We all are still searching for that dream.

I can only say beautiful vocals, harmonies and the solo was perfect.

Keep them coming

No nits here...no matter how long ago you wrote it...
My earlier writes shall stay buried! But I certainly
did my share of dream searching in the 60's.

So...another song that maintains your consistently
high arrangement and production standards. The
mix sounds spot on via my monitors and the
vocals sit just right in it all and are nicely done.

A very nice one to enjoy our morning coffee
over!

Hi David,

Wistful=having or showing a feeling of vague or regretful longing.
We just 'Googled' it :-)
We're glad that we managed to 'trigger' those kind of feelings.....

So.... it turns out that Rob is getting away with his juvenile song after all ;-)

Rob & Anne-Marie...

This is very well done.

The Production and mix are perfect. Each instrument sits right where it should. The vocals and harmonies are wonderful. It is so very enjoyable to hear your music. The lyric is a bit too esoteric for my taste. But all that surrounds it is super.

I do enjoy your songs. Y'all show BIAB off the way that it should be done....

There's so much to like here. For starters, it always impresses me how you manage to make a pre-created style of a computer software sound like a completely tailor made thing intended just for your songs.
And as for the age of the composition, I agree with what's already been stated. I myself wrote what I consider still to be my best work over 20 years ago.
If it's good, it's good! cool

That's a strong song, with your signature modulations which I always love! Vocals as usual are perfect. A well crafted piece guys.

Agree with John, I liked this one a lot - hooky chorus and good arrangement that showcases your vocals well.

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie,

As is often true, we're really late to this party. Everything has been said that stuck with us as we listened. what we enjoyed the most was the key modulation. Key changes always refresh a song and give it a new energy.

We loved everything about it! Excellent! best to you ...

Your use of BB & RB shows exactly what can be accomplished with this program.

Excellent job.

R & AM, This is a very well written piece and still holds up today. You certainly have a good handle on the software. The production sounds excellent. The vocals are up to your usual high standards. I especially liked the opening dobro part. Once again you've hit the mark. Tom

Probably a bit less polished and sophisticated than your newer stuff but still a solid write! And very well produced and performed to boot. Enjoyed the listen! Take care. Greg

Hi Alyn,

Thanks for your nice comments.
Glad you also liked the video, it's always a challenge for me to create a suitable video for each new song (almost every week crazy )

Regards,
Anne-Marie

Hi Floyd,

Glad you liked the song.
The lyrics then.... well, the initial lyrics Rob created about 20 years ago, were about his first 'real' whistle girlfriend, therefore not really good ....
So, I had to do some serious editing and added the dream concept laugh. That may be the reason the final result has become kinda esoteric.

Regards,
Anne-Marie

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."
