And what if she turned up again???

HEAVEN AND HELL

And now, after a while
the flame has gone
but still it's ready to start a fire
the pilot 's on,
he knows so well
The moment she will turn up
everything starts again
he can't control the man

It starts with hello
And as they go on
being friendly polite he knows
He 's fooling them both
Coz if he could
He' d be all over her now
Hoping he could redeem
A love that was not to be
He will relive a dream

Out of the blue
he's out of line
She is heaven and hell in seconds time
And he doesn't mind

And now, after a while
the flame has gone
but still it's ready to start a fire
The pilot' s on
the time will come
that moment she will turn up
and everything starts again
He can’t control the man
One day they'll meet and then...

Out of the blue
he's out of line
She is heaven and hell in seconds time
And he doesn't mind

Hey, Fred, GREAT tune!
I also really like the way it builds. I really dig your vocal stylin's, I love the way you, for example, hold the note of "mind" over the chord change(s). I like the overdriving guitar giving energy as the song builds.

A couple of very little things: if it was me, I'd want to tone way down the "-uh" heard after the "well" (of "he knows so well"), and maybe one or two additional instances -none of them glaring, mind you- of what I might call a "proximity effect" occurring in the vocals microphone, if I were trying to pretend I knew what I was talking about. All I know is that I hear it, and how I'm responding to it.

But yeah...VERY NICE, man! Solid poetry! Thanks for sharing! -Eric

Fred,

BRAVO!!!

Spectacular. Nice choice of piano. Perfect for that chord changes and the melody. Great idea to go with the MIDI Supertrack... The Hi-Q piano sounds terrific.

Your vocal is very nicely recorded - and VERY well sung!!! - and nicely balanced with the piano...

Your chorus gave me chills. M U S I C A L. It SINGS!!!

What a brilliant production! Don't know if you added that cymbal crash or it just "happened"... but it was PERFECT. (good drum sound!). The guitar solo is a nice addition...

I ENJOYED listening to this. BRAVO.

Rob and Anne-Marie,
Thanks for passing by and commenting. Having worked with BIAB for two months now, I'm having lots of fun, but I still am in a studying phase. Hoping to learn in listening to others while testing the flexibility of this great tool.
Hope to produce many more.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for passing by and commenting. You're right off course on the proximity effects. Normally I do three or four vocal takes, and then start putting the lead vocal together. Here I kept take four as a whole. I was so happy with the energy of it that I just put it in there.
I consider my productions as studies, and your comments really help! Thanks and see you around!
Fred

#TBT The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode!

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!
