Hi Bob,

What a great song, fantastic arrangement and brilliant production! Your singing is superb and the harmonies are terrific.

Verse 1 is spectacular. It really pulled me into the song. The way in which you've assembled the list of items in increasing order of importance is perfect! Cole Porter (list song expert) couldn't have done better. And that opening metaphor ... He's an awkward line from an unfinished poem... it contains such a wealth of information and imagery. That's inspired writing indeed.

Truly excellent.

All the best,
Noel

"He's an awkward line
From an unfinished poem
A forgotten man
With no way home
In a crowded world
He is all alone
There but for the grace of God."

Mr. Burke... you blew me away with that.
Every line. Every word.

Loved the arrangement. And I always dig your vocals...

You make this look easy.

Well done. I like how you craft the lyrics on this one.

Lots of folks tend to slip through the cracks of society.... great job and introspective view on this topic.

very touching song Bob.. thought provoking and a little bit disturbing. Music needs to do that to us sometimes. Good job.

Most excellent. When poetic lyrics "work" it is
a wonderful thing. And this is an example
of them working and working wonderfully well.

Like Pat said, "thought provoking."

Sounds like a lot of heart went into both the
write and the vocal.

Mix sounds great on the KRK's.

Kudos!

Bob,
Listened to your song.
Much has been said, I couldn't agree more...

Sometimes a song is destined to be an anthem, this song to me, feels like one!

Congratulations,

see you around,

Fred

When you order any PG Music products directly from www.pgmusic.com (or www.bandinabox.com) you'll receive immediate links to start downloading your order! Even if you choose to have a backup copy of your Band-in-a-Box® packages shipped, you'll still have the download links available to you - no need to wait!

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Using Mac? Order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
