Interesting all the way through. Good stops. Great Rock Yell!!!
Nice hot solo. Nice vocals and the harmonies are well done.

The ending is super cool.

You put a lot of work into this - and it shows!

(I would have liked the drums to be louder)

Great job. Enjoyed it!!!

+1 Exactly what I was going to say. Good Job! Tom


Thanks Tom,
Compliments from you guys make me feel humble (and very proud) smile

Rob and Anne-Marie,
Thanks for commenting! See/hear you soon!

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.

Hi Pat,

always love your input because you go beyond the song, and that is what I try to do in most of my songs. Though you wouldn't say this with this kind a song huh? Lyric-wise, English is my third language (first dutch, than french). When I write in English it will be less subtile as I have about 20% of the average vocabulary. But a song like this is great fun making, and I'm glad you liked it to. And the Austin Powers ending... Ah well, when I go... smile smile smile

PS
The next post will be instrumental, and another side of me...

Hi Fred,

It's a neat song. Big smile on my face throughout. 7 vocals! Really effective use of the vocal tracks as backing tracks.

This is absolutely fantastic!

I Loved everything about this. That infectious beat, great vocals and lyrics and without a doubt one of the best endings that I have ever heard in these forums!

This is a keeper.

Happy National Jukebox Day!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
