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

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

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...

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."
