Hi all.
Kevin suggested I post a song here.
It's about a woman who has Alzheimers, who drifts in and out of remembering.

The lyrics were mostly written by my friend Lisa Gundling. I tweaked them and added a couple of lines.

I use BIAB mostly and edit in Sonar X1 Producer.

Comments appreciated. https://soundcloud.com/vic-arnold/remember-in-colour

Hi, Vic.

Welcome to the Showcase!

Good write. Terrific arrangement. The Brent nylon works really well for this - you weaved it in very nicely - sounded like someone actually playing along to the song.

A lyric would be nice to see (everyone here is a writer, so we like to read 'em...). It's also nice if you list the RTs that you have used - to give folks ideas about producing their own songs if they hear something they like...

Tell Lisa she should join us! She would be a delightful addition here, as well..

Enjoyed the song. Sung with feeling...

Remember in Colour © 2015 Gundling & Arnold

The photo's worn, a black and white
She puts it to her wrinkled face
She recognizes him right now
On many nights that’s not the case
She wants to press her lips to his
For now this picture has to do
She giggles at her lipstick mark
Says, “you’re a mess now look at you”

Pre
In her mind she hears him say,
"That's no price to pay, ‘cause"
Chorus
Your kiss always set me on fire
It’s why I called you my live wire
I know your memory fades to black and white
But now…turn on the light…
Remember in color tonight.
Inst.
Colors fade to black and white
Red lipstick makes him look a clown
Who is that silly looking man?
She puts the photo of him down
Wipes away the kiss's mark
Now she's trying to forget
Makes her way back to the dark
But he won’t let her yet

Chorus
Your kiss always set me on fire
It’s why I called you my live wire
I know your memory fades to black and white
But now…turn on the light…
Remember in color tonight.
Inst.

Bridge
It stings to hear him say these things
She’d fly to him if she had wings
Chorus
Your kiss always set me on fire
It’s why I called you my live wire
I know your memory fades to black and white
But now…turn on the light…
Remember in color tonight".

Hi Vic. Good to see you here!
Didn't realise you used BIAB.
The vocals are nicely restrained and the lyrics are delightful.
Cheers.

Hi Vic, welcome to BiaB. I think you'll like this community of
writers, arrangers and producers. And you will hear some
amazing use of BiaB.

This is an excellent write and production in all aspects.
Everything just sits right to support the vocal delivery.

Janice and I are in a situation with both of our mothers
which allows us to feel very close to your sentiments
in this song.

You might be interested that a collaborator and active
member of this board wrote a song a few months back that
was based on a similar theme.
Who I Once Was

Again welcome and thanks for bring both of ya'll's talents
to this forum. I'm sure you'll be much appreciated!

Hi Sundance.
Thank you for the appreciation.
Maybe coincidence but I co wrote a song called "The Last Sundance" just recently.

Vic, Welcome and I hope you've got a lot more where this came from. The subject matter hit close to home here and I'm sure many others will say the same. Really nice use of real tracks and the nylon guitar works especially well. Nice job on the mix and production and well done Lisa on the lyrics. I quite enjoyed the song. Tom

Vic,

A very nice sounding song to be about such a cruel disease. Excellent arrangement and production.

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."
