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,

This is just fantastic! Really well done. Love the strings. Very reflective. Your vocals just keep getting better and better!

Love it.

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!

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!

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."
