FANCY UNDERWEAR ON YOUTUBE

Some of you may remember this song that I wrote in early 2013. I recently rerecorded and remixed it for my album.

I thought you may be interested in seeing the video I have put together. Have a look at 0.36 where the audience holds their hands over their ears while the guy is singing.

Sometimes I feel like that!

Realtracks are:
RealTracks in song: ~537:Bass, Acoustic, Pop Sw 165
RealTracks in song: ~615:Harmonica, Background HeeHaw Sw 165
RealTracks in song: ~373:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Hank Sw 165
RealTracks in song: ~~610:Mandolin, Rhythm Chop Sw 120
RealDrums in style: NashvilleSwing8^5-a:Sidestick, HiHat , b:Snare, HiHat

Lyrics:
They tell me I should dance like no one’s watching
I’d sure like to sing like no one cares
But when I dance why do my friends make fun of me
My neighbour shuts her doors when I play

Burn the candles use the best sheets
Wear my fancy underwear
Why is this impossible when you’re not here
Wont wear my fancy underwear

They tell me I must give attention to the now
Not dwell on a past I cannot change
To fret about the future is the very worst
Life so uncertain eat pudding first

Burn the candles use the best sheets
Wear my fancy underwear
Why is this impossible when you’re not here
Wont wear my fancy underwear

Kiss slowly love deeply
Let go of what you need
This is just unthinkable
when life’s no longer sweet
Wont wear my fancy underwear


Comments are appreciated.

Absolutely brilliant Josie, I really enjoyed that song and the video fits perfectly.

You have done a fab mix here, couldn't be any better in my opinion. You really know your stuff as regards mixing and mastering, the harmonies sound great too, comes across as done by yourself?

This song is so good it would deserve to be heard by a wide audience. I hope it does well for you.

Hi Bob - Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it. Your videos are an inspiration to me and makes me more determined to make better videos. The vintage stuff is great.

Musiclover - The harmonies etc were done by me. Mixing and mastering is continuing to be a challenge but getting easier. Glad you enjoyed the song. When I wrote it I never thought it was much good as I wrote in honestly about 1/2 an hour. Maybe it will come into its own...

the video clip just makes all of this sit like a well choreographed and thought-out production. Great job, and lots of good research. The catchy tune and the great vision go so well together.

Well done
Trevor

Wow Josie, great video and really good mix. I also think you've written a very strong song here. The song would stand well by itself but along with the video, it's top notch.

This has quickly become one of my favorites of yours. Good stuff.


Charlie

ps: I noticed around 1:55 of the video, in the beginning, the trumpet player is tapping in time with your song. Good editing.

Hi Trevor - Thanks for that. I really didn't think too much about this one. It just sort of "happened". I did try to match the clips with the lyrics as much as possible but was limited in my choice of clips.

Charlie - Thank you so much. I think the trumpet player playing in time was also just a stroke of luck. No fancy editing. But I did notice it when reviewing the video.

Hi Joanne,

Charlie nailed it: "Great video and really good mix. I also think you've written a very strong song here. The song would stand well by itself but along with the video, it's top notch."
A really enjoayble watch/listen.

Joanne,

I liked the production and the video... but I'm not sure I understand the point you are making.

I started off thinking that it was a song about not falling into the trap of setting good things aside for "someday" (that might never come)... a song about living life fully without worrying about public opinion or the possibility of using precious resources when circumstances don't call for it.

But then you ended with the opposite of that sentiment by saying that you WON'T wear your fancy underwear. So I'm not sure I got your point. Can you elaborate a little more?

Wow! You have a classic folk voice.
Well written.
Loved the video especially the musicians playing to the lady on the second story.
Good work.
Rob.

When there's a song called Fancy Underwear with a video, I'm there!! A little different than I expected but it was a lot of fun. Really nice job on the song-write, arrangement, and vocal. The harmonica could not have been any better if you hired the guy for this song! Really enjoyed! Take care. Greg

Hi Josie,

I remember this song from the first post! It's a great video you've put together to accompany it - very entertaining. I enjoyed the journey.

Regards,
Noel

Hello Joanne,

We hadn't heard this song before... but it's nice and funny.
The backing vocals are very solid by the way. A nicely compiled video of public domain images, well done!

Hi Pat.
The idea of the song is that everybody is always saying you must dance like no ones watching, live life for today as if there is no tomorrow. Burn candles, use the best sheets etc. The point of the song is that I CANT do that when you are not here. I'm just gonna sit here and be miserable! I, especially, just cannot wear my fancy underwear if you're not here!

Its interesting in that I thought it quite clear in this particular song but I guess that is what happens with song writing. It is quite clear in the writer's head but comes out quite different to the listener. The challenge is to put the idea across succinctly.

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.

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

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.
