Rachel and I celebrated our 39th Anniversary last week. (I think we got married when we were 3. ) smile

I have been very blessed to have a good wife, and family. I am so thankful for her. I actually wrote this song 3 years ago, but was going through some old ones and listening to them, and decided to remix it. All RealTracks/Drums, with brass and strings added via Garritan Orchestra softsynth that I played. This one was done in Logic Pro X. I hope you enjoy it!

You're The Only One For Me

Here are the lyrics...

You're The Only One For Me
Words & Music, Copyright Stephen W. Young

I dream about the future
About the way things ought to be
And baby, you're the only one for me
But I don't need imagination
For me to know the way I feel
Cause you're the only one for me

No one ever moved me
The way you do
I'm so glad I found
Someone like you

Every day that I am with you
Is another dream come true
Cause you're the only one for me
I love everything about you
I love everything you do
Cause baby, you're the only one for me

No one ever moved me
The way you do
I'm so blessed to find
Someone like you

And if you didn't notice
I want everyone to know
That you're the only one for me

No one ever moved me
The way you do
I'm so blessed to find
Someone like you

Clever choice to start off with that reggae-infused intro, grabs your attention straight away (which is important). There's a theory that the listener decides within the first 15 seconds of a song if it's worth continuing or not, so an early 'hook' like that is just the thing.
Am also liking the interesting choices of RT's in general. You obviously know them well enough not to be biased (read:limited) by their names alone.

Beautiful
nice echo on the backing vocals "baby you're the only one" at 2.50ish and other spots
very smooth fade

She's a lucky lady to have such a nice song written about her
congrat on 39 years!!!

best wishes to you both

Alyn

Hi, Steve!

I recall this song from my early days on the forum - which was because of you (and your use of BIAB) in the first place... I can't thank you enough for that!

Just a super write! Simple, to the point and filled with positive emotion - a great combination for any writer to take note of - and strive for...

Your production is tasty (always!). Crisp, clean, clear. Top shelf. Your vocals are always so "comfortable" - and SO well recorded.

Excellent - top to bottom - start to finish...

Hi Steve.

Beautifully done. What a lovely gentle reggae rhythm to go with those tender lyrics.

Great song, very emotive vocals and an excellent mix. The fiddle solo was a surprise, but I have to say it worked well.

Congrats on the 39 years and all the best for the next 39.

ROG.

There are a million great sweet, honest love songs, and this is one!! Some subjects are so much in our DNA that you never get tired of hearing about them. This is so upbeat and pleasant. Loved it! Take care. Greg

Steve, Happy anniversary! Like floyd, when I first heard your productions I realized the great potential of this software. I love the way you have used so many different real tracks that at first glance wouldn't seem to necessarily work together. Your vocals are top notch as well as your arrangements. The clarity of your finished product is astounding. Great song, as you know I am a fan. Tom

Congrats on the 39! 35 with us. We love these
laid back grooves (we're big JJ Cale fans) and this
is a fine example. A terrific write, vocal, melody with
an intriguing and very effective RT choice.

And you wrapped up the above up with a strong mix
(another Logic Pro user here).

And with it being on SC we can add it to our mix.

Most enjoyable!

J&B

PS The sly reggae organ was very cool.

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."
