I try not to post songs so close together in time, but this one fell together so I just let it happen.

I wrote this song in 2007 but I've never recorded it. At the time I wrote it I was convinced that I had moved on from her; but I know now that I never will. So many songs that I have written are about her...

As played on guitar the verses are in 6/4 on the up beat, and the chorus is 4/4. But I managed to work it out and record it in a reggae style with BIAB. (By some fit of manipulation and magic.)

Realtracks: 1153 Bass; ReggaeClassic^1 drums; 1154 Guitar; 587 Sax; 1156 Piano; 1155 Organ; 1949 piano; 1410 piano, synth; 2155 piano electric.

Tangle With Love (8-1-2007)

My heart is fine I tell ya, I’ll be all right yes sir
It’s just another leg on, leg on life’s journey
A wild ride not a, final destination
I can’t hide from the, from the realization

I had a little tangle with love, I should
Know by now I just can’t fool around with love
I had a little tangle with love
And it left me just a little confused

A heart unbound like a, like a rose petal
A world unkind but I, no I won’t settle
I’ll put myself out there, every time I will
I will tare down, all the walls I build
I had a little tangle with love, I should
Know by now I just can’t fool around with love
I had a little tangle with love
And it left me more than a little confused

It’s not a story about redemption, it’s not a tale about sorrow or regret
It may be a song about reflection, well I just don’t know yet

My heart is fine I tell ya, I’ll be alright yes sir
It’s just another leg on, leg on life’s journey

I had a little tangle with love, I should
Know by now I can’t fool around with love
I had a little tangle with love
But I can’t wait to tangle with love again

Different, and I really like it. Your vocals are spot on. I found the drums a bit disconcerting but I think that has more to do with the meter of the song than anything.
The song seemed to have a Zak Brown vibe to me which is good thing.

Overall, one of my favorites from you so far.

Enjoyed my listen, a lot. Going back for more.

Hi Lawrence,

That's a very good composition Lawrence. The Reggae style is quite refreshing!
We appreciate you not wanting to post several songs close together in time whistle.....
We're pretty sure the song's theme will resonate with lots of people.
Rob is no stranger to this kind of song grin

I like everything about this! Super vocals and backing tracks put it over the top for me! I really liked that Reggae feel this one has and the lyrics were absolutely great!

Great work here!

Hi Lawrence.

The backing is wonderful, but what's even better is your vocal performance.

What a great track and at the same time, refreshingly different.

Had to listen again.

Really, really nice! Sounds a little like Huey Lewis does Reggae. (That's a compliment.)

Thanks for sharing it!

Hey Lawrence,

Love this one. Gotta love da reggae. Everyting irie, mon! Like Steve, I'm hearing a Huey Lewis influence as well - which is a very good thing. Your voice is distinctive.

Bob

Hi Lawrence ...

Reviews are short since my stroke. Typing isn't easy at the movement. Agree with Steve about the Huey Lewis hint in your voice. Very nice indeed!

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
