The Cantina

This was a five minuet write.
Comments invited.
Rob

https://soundcloud.com/ironbarkbob/the-cantina

Down in the Cantina sunlight bathes the walls.
Where the desert cactus sprawls In the Cantina.
Mariachi music plays you could laze away your days.
Just forget the city haze.In the Cantina.

Oh man you should have see her.
I was sitting nearer.
Holding my Margarita in the Cantina.

Bridge

Down in the Cantina where the kiotes call to me.
There's flamenco on the breeze in the Cantina.
Now I'm in the airport cue not a cactus in my view.
I'm sorry to be leaving the Cantina.

Oh man you should have see her.
I was sitting nearer.
Holding my Margarita in the Cantina.

Though my Margaritas with me she traveling duty free.
I'm taking her away from the Cantina.
Far well to those desert sands I've come away a different man
Yes I know I'll always miss the Cantina.

Oh man you should have see her.
I was sitting nearer.
Holding my margarita in the Cantina.

Hi Bob

you also have the voice like Johnny Cash!!

The song remember me the Bob Dylan's style in the Lp
"Pat Garret & Billy the kid" (cantina theme)

Great work.

Hello.

Hi Bob. Nice relaxed song there.
Would have taken me a week at least!
Your voice and style always make me think of Marty Robbins.
Cheers.

Sometimes the best ones just flow!! This has a really pleasant feel. Arrangement works perfect, and you nailed the vocal. Cool song!! Take care. Greg

Great to have something with a very unique South American/Mexican feel. Really worked nice.

Hello Trevor.
I started this song with one individual track at a time.
The result was what you hear.
Normally I would steer away from this genre,thought it was worth the experiment.

Rob.

Rob,

Good song for a quick write.
You should now be known as speedy gonzales/rob4580 grin

Your voice really suits that style of music.

thoroughly enjoyed

Alyn

Nice southwestern Marty Robbins groove and sound
you have going here. Very cool and vivid imagery
in the lyric. I do have to say that had I read the
lyric before listening I wouldn't have known that a
kiote was a coyote smile The mix sounds just right
on the monitors for my ears and taste. You definitely
have a good feel for different genres. Fun isn't it?!

Very nice listen!!

J&B

PS: Five minutes? It takes me about that
long to remember my PG Music password.

Nice song Rob!

When you say this took 5 minutes, that doesn't include the time it took to write the lyrics, does it?

But, whether it does or not, the ability to crank out good songs quickly is a pretty good indication of your comfort level with the software, and a pretty good testimony to BIAB as a rapid development system!

On top of all the things I always like about your songs (your voice in particular) I liked the way you wrote the lyrics to suggest that Margarita might be a woman instead of a drink. Every time you mention "Margarita" the context supports both interpretations. I think that sort of thing adds a lot to any song.

The song is straight-forward, and also a little bit obscure. It Keeps the audience wondering if you might mean something besides what you appear to be saying. wink

PG Music News
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."
