You know the feeling when the café/pub/bar closes and you don't feel like leaving the place?
Here's some old school fun-rock&roll!

When I go (I'll go through the window)

When I go
I'll go through the window
When I go
I won't go through the door

Well you want me to go so just throw me out.
But I want you to know that I'll make it loud.
My friends even say that I adore
To go through the window and not through the door

Sounded like a tough one to do, but it was a ton of fun. Cool instrumentation all the way through and very good vocals. Nice job, it was a pleasure to listen to. Interesting ending, for sure.

Hi, Fred !:))


I take it this is what
happens after one or two
too many bottles of "delirium tremens" (chuckle) !
Seriously speaking this is just
hilarious and at the same time
superbly done on all fronts !:))
I like your vocals and vocal harmonies
most ! Just great Fred !


Cheers
Dani

Floyd,
Thank you for listening and opening the comments!
You're absolutely right, the drums drowned in the pool of sound. They seemed OK yesterday in the headphones, I guess I should always check through live speakers. Thanks for the remark, The remixed version is online :-)
Take care,
Fred

Hi Fred.

"You know the feeling when the café/pub/bar closes and you don't feel like leaving the place?"

I know that feeling VERY well. My husband and I are always the first to arrive at a party and the last to leave. It has become a standing joke.
Such a great tune. Good job

Wow! I know that took a lot of work.
It's one of the most effective straight
out rockers I've heard here. Really
cool vocals and lyric. Absolutely
a great arrangement and mix. It sounds
very good on my KRK's.

Love that ending!!

Hi Guenter,
The harmonies where a wink to Anne Marie, who did such great harmonies round Christmas. Hope she likes to smile

Hi Fred,

you had me at the drum intro!

And the repetition of the title throughout the song makes for a VERY catchy "get stuck in your head" kind of groove. But I have to admit, there were moments when I started to fear that two lines in I had already heard all of the lyrics. Glad it didn't turn out that way. It worked very well!

I also really like the energy you managed to infuse into the song, and the live feel you introduced through the callouts and your selection of real tracks

I'm not as enthusiastic about the ending as everybody else seems to be. It's creative and different (which I like) but it also seems unnecessary and anticlimactic to me. But go with the majority on this one. I think the song is an extrovert's anthem, and I'm very much an introvert who is ready to leave long before the party's over. So it makes sense that being pulled back in the door by a faux ending would leave me feeling caught as I tried to sneak out early. wink

All in all I liked it very much, especially the energy and ear worm.

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."
