A little morose ballad. wink Mostly BIAB, lost the original .sgu, so not sure which RT's. I apologize in advance for the clichés. grin

Jenny Doesn't Live Here Anymore
©2014 Robert Randall Burke/BMI


Jenny doesn't live here anymore
Left it all behind and closed the door
She lost all the battles
Then she won the war
Jenny doesn't live here anymore.

Some vows are written in the sand
One wave erases all your plans
What is forever
If forever never comes?
When will she ever understand?

Somewhere the sun is shining
Through a cloud with a silver lining
On a world where she can be reborn.

Who knows where love goes when it dies?
When does indifference arise?
Does it slip away in darkness
Like a thief in the night?
Who knows where love goes when it dies?

Somewhere the sun is shining
Through a cloud with a silver lining
On a world where she can be reborn.

Jenny doesn't live here anymore.






Regards,

Bob

"She lost all the battles
Then she won the war "

"Some vows are written in the sand
One wave erases all your plans"

This is an engaging write and the
above lines really stuck with me. The
arrangement and your vocal give
an ethereal feel that really fits
the lyric. Janice says she can
picture her walking away through the
fog. So....nice imagery!

We enjoyed listening.

"little" is not a word I would use to describe that.

It's huge!

Dig those strings throughout - and especially the "lead"...

Awesome vocal. (I like the big reverb).

A great listen. (and a cool title!)

Plan to enjoyed many listens...

Bob, I really like the write. The chord progression is perfect for this. Well sung and the production is spot on. Like Janice, I also see Jenny slipping away in the fog. Great job! Tom

I think this is your best to date.

Love your vocals - that reverb is outstanding!

Your lyrics are outstanding.

Super job on the chord changes and the strings.

Bob,

Beautifully sung. Very Rod Mckuen vibe for me. Loved the piano, those strings and "she lost all the battles and then she won the war" - really nice.

I agree with Janice and Bud these lines pop

"She lost all the battles
Then she won the war "

"Some vows are written in the sand
One wave erases all your plans"

Nice performance; thanks for sharing!

+1 on that.

There's nothing simple about this, but I very much like the simplicity of the arrangement, if that makes any sense:)

Your delivery and presentation, vocally and musically, outstanding!

Hi there Bob.

Wow, that's some powerful reverb you've got working there. Fabulous big stereo wash over everything.

Back in the 80s there was this thing for "Concept" albums and somehow this sounds to me like it's part of a bigger project. Whatever. Did I say I liked it? Well I love it.

You really do produce some excellent stuff, Bob.

Cheers, ROG.

Hi ROG. Thanks for listening. Yeah, it's flooded with verb, but that's the sound I was going for. Always been a big Phil Spector fan! grin

Great style! What is the instrument on the right? It sounds like a guitar, is it BIAB?

Wonderfully moody!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
