I wrote this song while I was in a Hospital in NY State when I was 25. It took them a whole week to find out that I had Hepatitis "A" which they now call Hep "C".

Lyrics:
A New Day
By Horst Hartung 1976

A new day has begun, as the sun’s light shines in my eyes
As the flowers are swaying to the children who are playing
And the young sparrow, learns to fly

And the mothers, hold their sons
And the father, stands nearby
And the feeling is good, to share love as you should
And I thank God I’m alive

As the dreams carry us on, sunken hearts reach for the sky
Places you think of where there was so much love
A feeling come true and alive

And the mothers, hold their sons
And the father, stands nearby
And the feeling is good, to share love as you should
And I thank God I’m alive

There is a treasure for you to be found
Somewhere, awaiting us all

A new day has begun, as the sun’s light shines in my eyes
As the flowers are swaying to the children who are playing
And the young sparrow, learns to fly

And the mothers, hold their sons
And the father, stands nearby
And the feeling is good, to share love as you should
And I thank God I’m alive

I thank God I’m alive
I thank God I’m alive

Enjoy....

Another great tune!! Love the feel, and love the vocal. Really nicely done all the way around. I think the mix could be a bit brighter. I love the organic feel you get but it seems that this one is a little light on the high end. Great stuff!! Take care. Greg

This was a good production and I liked the harmonies. Good choice for instrumentation. You have nice varieties between the different songs you've posted so far. It's keeping things interesting.

Great feel and arrangement, love the vocals and the message. On the mix, it could be a tad brighter - maybe cut a little of the low mid/lows?

I really like your style Horst.

Horst, This is good write. The vocals are great. The arrangement is just right for the style. I agree it could use some brightening. Maybe in the mastering stage. Tom

Hello Josie....

This was a very old song and I've played around with it with older versions of Powertracks but was never happy with the finished product.

I'm hoping to re-do this song with 2014 or maybe 2015 version of Realband. I'm still not happy with it so I'll keep at it til I get it right...

Love what your doing with your music....

Hello Guenter...

I like mixing things up and don't like being stuck with just one style of music....I like all kinds of music...so I always try to do something different in each song I write....it make it more interesting....

Hello Alyn...

This song has a long way to go before it's finished. It seems like every new version of Realband, I want to change a lot of things in my older songs...Maybe version 2015 will be the one for this song...

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
