Hi everyone,

Lyrics:

Junior Prom

all the guys will wait
for the one with the laughter
every boy would show her the way

remember them, remember me
the ones not really there
all the guys would give her their name

but once the fear's away
things will change, things will change
love will sure get better in the end

all the boys that wait
dream of love, dream of glory
they watch the girls go by with a smile

imagining her faithful kiss
lasting all night long
gentle love could never be wrong

and once they'd find their way
things would change, things would change
life could not get better in their eyes

all the girls that crave
for the love ever after
afraid of giving in to the spell

they know the signs, they play the game
they never go too far
all the girls give in just the same

and once their caution's gone
life will change, life will change
feel a sense of magic in the air
but when dreams get in the way
things could change, things could change
promised love feels better in the end

Hello across the pond,

I am tickled to death you used one of the UserTracks in your music.
That shows off what folks can do with the UT's.

To best of my knowledge your music is first to use a UT.

Thanks for sharing the information and also you folks work.

The whole music arrangement, mix, vocals....Really enjoyed

Keep on having fun.

Hi R&AM. This certainly captures the feeling of the period.
Beautifully done as usual and the video is like movies I watched in younger years. Cheers.

Yes indeed.

What a terrific sound y'all! The lead and harmony vocal levels/mix are perfect, and your parts are oh-so-well-performed...as usual.

Take a bow:)

Very nicely done. Really captures that 80's sound - but nicely mixed with the RnAM signature sound.

A good lyric. Well sung, of course. Nicely arranged and produced - as always... Cool lead, Rob. Also cool that you used Frank's work...

You guys are the masters of that retro sound!! This has a great feel and the production is excellent. Even the vocal has an 80's vibe to it (great processing and delivery). Enjoyed the video a lot as well!! Take care. Greg

A meticulous production. EVERYTHING works so
well. 24 tracks! Sheeesh! That makes my hair
hurt. To take that number of tracks and make
everything sound so seamless very impressive.
The vocal processing is really standout....just
melts right into the mix and yet, counterintuitively,
it also perfectly stands out.

The video is like your others is eye candy for us
old movie fans.

And kudos on the user track and the fine write.
So much to like here.

Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-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.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-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.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
