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

Well done!



Thanks for the music,

+1 I'll bet RichMac loved that buzz bass. Nice harmonized lead. You really have a handle on this style. Tom

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.

J&B

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

To watch Henry's video, click here.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Portuguese for Windows is Here!

Existem mais de 50 novos recursos no Band-in-a-Box® 2020! Existem aprimoramentos no RealTracks (RealTracks vocais com som mais suave, RealTracks Engrossados, Substitutos de RealTracks e MultiFrases). A maioria dos RealDrums agora possui RealCharts (com notação de bateria precisa). Há um novo navegador de artistas do RealTracks para encontrar informações/biografias/links/listas de RealTracks em todos os artistas. Um novo Navegador de recursos permite que o usuário novo ou "esquecido" encontre e use facilmente a maioria dos recursos/teclas de atalho/documentos em uma única janela. Equalizar Tempoaprimoramentos na Seleção de Músicas, baixo/bateria ou apenas bateria nas introduções automáticas, 3.400 títulos adicionados, aprimoramentos no MusicXML, visualização de guitarra para "Canhotos" e "Estudantes", aprimoramentos de arrastar e soltar, exibição de várias janelas do Interpretador de Acordes de Áudio e muito mais!

COMPRE/ATUALIZE, & BAIXE AGORA!

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 Mac Update Ready!

Just because Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac is here doesn't mean we've forgotten our 2019 users!

If you're still using Band-in-a-Box® 2019, make sure you download the latest patch update (b324) for an updated splash screen (macOS 10.12 and 10.13 users), smoother Song Titles dialog, access to your (purchased) RealTracks Set 328, and we've corrected the reported issue with opening songs from older versions of Band-in-a-Box in the 2019 version.

Learn more about this patch and download it here.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
