Having recently read how much One Direction each made, apparently 27 million UK pounds in 5 years, I thought I would resurrect this song with RTs etc 'cos I now, again grin , wanna be in a boyband! But I can't decide which version. Do I want a personal trainer or <cough> a dealer???
I wrote this last century hence the reference to Blink 182.

Rashelle, from 2 sexy for me was staying and so we had MTV or VH1 permanently on the TV and the difference in the videos gave me the idea.
I recorded the vocal in one take having practised breathing at the right time for the fast bits. "fags" is the British slang for cigarettes by the way smile

I wanna be in a boyband

I wanna get to Number One
I wanna look like its all bin fun
I want all the world to know what I eat
to answer those questions on MTV
I want to sing in the pouring rain
'n be in love and look like I'm in pain
Look sincere and hold out my hand
I want to be in a boy band

I wanna be tattooed from head to toe
holes in places where the holes don't go
I wanna strut around fully dressed in mud
cut myself and see my blood
I wanna be in a boy band
girls play my records thro out the land
wanna run round in the nude
Just like Blink 182

Gonna learn the craft of life
forget being normal this is the after life
Wot I earn in 50 years they earn in one
that to me 'sgotta be the one

Jump up and down pullin faces
Driving fast cars in stupid places
Wanna get a sponsorship from Paul Reed Smith
Give up fags and smoke only spliffs
Don't sell out gonna write my songs
Not a pop idol but it won't take long
Fat greysuits take care of it all
jump in the air 'n grab my balls
I wanna be in a boy band
girls play my records thro the land
I wanna run round in the nude
Just like Blink 182
wanna be tattooed from head to toe
holes in places where holes don't go
I wanna strut around fully dressed in mud`
cut myself and see my blood
I wanna be in a boy band
girls play my records thro out the land
Ah wanna run round in the nude
Just like Blink 182

Wanna get to Number One
Ah wanna look its all bin fun
Want to wun around in the nude
Just like Blink 182

Hi Alyn,

what fun! A really entertaining song.
Must have been difficult to sing the fast bits.
Unbelievable you did it in one take.
Very enjoyable listen.

Thank you.
I wanted the 2 halves to illustrate the 2 different genres and also possibly playable live. As each part was done in separate BIAB files, but with 2 instances of BIAB running it took a while to match them.
I am glad you liked the fast bits, as they were my favourite part.

Thanks for listening

Alyn

Thanks for listening

Yes it was difficult singing the fast bits as I kept tripping on words and running out of breath grin
So I learnt to take a sharp intake of breath at the end of the fast lines and put a red dot on the original lyric sheet to remind me blush

I cursed the song many times as it sounded stilted and awful singing the lines until I messed up, then cutting and pasting the good bits and I began to hate the song
Then as a last resort I gaffa taped a shortish stick to the mic stand so I'd stay in roughly the same position all the way through; took a deep breath and BINGO.
I sung it to the midi version and enjoyed "Real-Trackin'" the song afterwards grin .

I am so glad you enjoyed it!!

Alyn

Just wonderful Alyn!! It has your unique band of hilarity and kooky creativity.

wanna be tattooed from head to toe

You have brought a smile to my face and a laugh from my lungs. I love the contrast from ballade to "punk". A super write!

and a super creative use of BAIB!!!

There you go. This would be a great song for Disney World, where dreams do come true. Sometimes, even for Boy Bands.

I'd buy a ticket to your concert...


Enjoyed.

Hilarious fun! smile

But I can't resist noting these cunning rhymes:

Gonna learn the craft of life
forget being normal this is the after life
Wot I earn in 50 years they earn in one
that to me's gotta be the one

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Fun, clever and it must have taken a
heckuva lot of work to put all that
together. GREAT write and floyd
has already mentioned our favorite
line. Cool guitar and vocals indeed.
This is a clinic in what can be done
with BiaB -- very inventive.

Superb!!!

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
