Exception To The Rule

© 2015 leverett/jane

from a spark to a flame
when you whispered my name
but times, I've been burned by blue eyed cool
smoky barroom vignettes
leaving nothing but regrets
still there’s always an exception to the rule

been stood up, knocked down
my heart's been dragged around
girls like you playing me for a fool
are you just in it for the fun
or could you be the one
there’s always an exception to the rule

and you’ve been slowly breaking down my resistance
with your sweet intoxicating Southern drawl
pretty soon now there’ll be no safe distance
should I walk away before I have to crawl

so what's it gonna be
settle in or set me free
are you playing for keeps or playing dirty pool
one sweet kiss and one last dance
or should we take the bigger chance
'cause there’s always an exception to the rule

I love it!! Great attitude, great rock feel, and some playfulness about a serious subject. Reminds me a little of Red Neck Friend by Jackson Browne. Guitar is perfect. Really clever and fun stuff. Kenny + Floyd = YEAH!!! Great one guys! Take care. Greg

The lyrics flowed well

Thanks Greg, always appreciate your kind and thoughtful words. Love me some classic Jackson Browne, I believe I told floyd that I had Jackson's Road and the Sky kind of in mind at the start and then found these Dwight Yokum midi files.

Thanks Alyn,
I just loved the sound of the chords at the end but it's a really good idea, I may go back and play some short bursts of lead guitar at that point in between the chords, thanks for the input and kind words.

HI Guys.

Great driving sound and excellent vocals and harmonies.

Sounds good on the monitors, but the stereo panning was a bit aggressive for my taste when listening on the phones. Floyd - you'll have heard me say this a few times? Kenny - the lead guitar inserts sound like a good idea.

Great mix - sounds good LOUD.

ROG.

Hi Kenny and floyd,

Well that woke me up! I really enjoyed the groove of this one.. up-beat, toe tapping and 100% engaging. It's a credit to both of you. I don't know who did what but it all worked for me.

My favourite line was "I've been burned by blue eyed cool". Maybe it's because of the chemist in me but that phrase created the image of a blue flames flashing from a woman's glare! That's never happened in any song I've listened to before.

Overall... excellent work!

All the best,
Noel

Thanks ROG,
appreciate the encouraging words, the aggressive stereo panning is my fault and I don't understand just what I've done, maybe the rhythm guitar was too hard left, everything else was subtle degrees from center. I know you know you your stuff and appreciate your input and advice.

Thanks Noel,
I'm a guy who collects phrases, I might have have heard blue eyed cool spoken on a podcast months ago, it was on my ipad notes screen for a while, love it when I go back and find something that I can use in a song. Thanks for the kind words.

Loved it right from the git go!

Its all been said so as an exception to the rule I will not repeat it but I do agree with the others.

You both should be very proud of this one.

{edit} I forgot to add this: PS - this is your best to date IMHO

Hey Guys, That is one cool sounding country rocker. Great hook! Nice harmonies floyd. The organ is killer. There are some really useful midi tracks if you dig for them and this proves it. Good write with some cool lines. Tom

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!
