The Lyrics:

YOU`RE MAKIN´ME FEEL SO FINE (by Dani) ©Dani Lindroos 2014

I was alone for such a long time
I never thought I´d find the way back to rhyme
again, never, again
she had to go away
leaving me here in sorrow
each day was ever so gray,
like there was no tomorrow

She was the one I loved for so long
I never realized there was something wrong
and then, suddenly, it was all in vain
Why did she have to go
Why was she taken from me
you know I loved her dearly so
did´nt know what was to be…..

was to be, was to be….

Then you came by and lit up my sky
and now I´m not alone anymore
now you´re not really shy
like before
´cause you´re mine
leading me back to the rhyme
and you know that you´re mine
makin´me feel , oh so fine

solo…….

Why did she have to go
Why was she taken from me
you know I loved her dearly so
did´nt know what was to be…..

was to be, was to be….

Then you came by and lit up my sky
and now I´m not alone anymore
now you´re not really shy
like before
´cause you´re mine
leading me back to the rhyme
and you know that you´re mine
makin´me feel , oh so fine

´cause you´re mine
leading me back to the rhyme
and you know that you´re mine
makin´me feel, oh so fine
oh so fine…….fade away

Cheers
Dani

Hi Dani,

First of all... Congratulations! laugh

And... what a beautiful song! This kind of music is the right music for your voice.
The backing vocals are also very nice, is that HER?

Go on making this kind of music.

Rob and Anne-Marie

Really beautiful song!! Great emotion, sweet music. I think the Bacharach style suits you very well. Your style definitely reminds me of his. I was always a big fan. This is certainly one of my Dani favorites. Post to your heart's content-I never get tired of listening! Take care. Greg

One of your best yet Dani, if not the best. Like others have said, this style fits you so well. I like your instrumentation on this one as well as the nice chord progression. And, as always, your vocals are spot on. It was a joy to listen to this one. Looking forward for another soon. Glad you are back and posting again.

Hi Dani!

Thanks for honoring my request for more music after your sailing adventure!

I am so glad to hear that you have found love again! I know the deep dark place you were in for such a long time, and it must be a great relief to be out of that pit.

I agree with other peoples' comment that the Burt Bacharach style is a good fit for you. The song is very nice and does a good job of expressing a wide range of emotions. My only observation is as follows:

Drawing the listeners mood from one very deeply felt negative emotion to a new deeply felt positive emotion within the span of a few minutes asks an awful lot of the listener's willingness to concentrate and really consider what you are saying. The willingness to project themselves into your emotion strongly affects how much they can be moved by the song.

Considering the possible ways to draw a listener in, I was reminded of a device that was used in the Wizard of Oz. Before Dorothy got to Oz, the film was in black and white... but in Oz, it was in technicolor! This simple change in video format implied differences very quickly and easily which would have taken many words to duplicate.

In a 3 minute song, there is no time to lyrically develop the idea that life is better in the 2nd half of the song. Taking the Wizard of Oz video idea and modifying it for audio, you could accomplish it very easily by making the first half of the song less decorated and very sparsely orchestrated. Then, when love appears, break out the violins and full blown orchestration!

But, I'm just rambling here, because being in the same situation as you, I have spent quite a bit of time thinking about how I would pursue a song like this. It's not the easiest kind of song to write, but you did it very well! I got sucked right into the vortex of the tornado. ;-)

Dani, your song provides hope for me too! Thanks!

Dani, You sure have a handle on this style. But that doesn't mean you should stop experimenting. It is so easy do with BIAB. You sing this one very well. Great BG vocals. Nice job. Tom

Hi, Pat !

I did not know that you
were in the same boat with me
but now that I do, I sure
hope that you will manage
to steer the boat to the shore
bringing the journey to a
satisfying end !

Regarding the song, I fully
agree with everything you
said about it ! I should have
had a more significant change
of orchestration where the
good part begins ! I will keep
that lesson in mind lest I
should write a sequel ?

Brother Pat ! Take care
and may everything go well with
you !

Cheers
Dani

Hi Dany,

what a beautiful song. It is the style that suits you best.
Great changes and harmonies. You've already answered Pat's nits.
A very enjoyable listen.
And congratulations by the way.

Hi, Floyd !:))

LOL, thank you Floyd for
your most kind words !
I guess love and longing are
among the strongest emotions
driving songwriting and
performing ? I am glad
if I have been able to express
those feelings in a
convincing way to at least
a small extent ?

Cheers
Dani

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
