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

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!

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

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

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.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
