Sonny,

Most people don't want to address the issue, but fortunately, some are. Of particular concern to me are the homeless vets, some 50,000 of them. Progress is being made, though, as the total number of homeless vets is down of late.
Hope springs eternal.

Thanks for the kind words. I don't know what you mean about the piano, but I'll give it a closer look.

I think this is one of your best vocals yet. Your emotional vocal fits the song style and vibe perfectly.

It doesn't hurt that to me, your vocals and again this song style, has an uncanny feel of a Charlie Rich performance. That fact adds to the ease of closing my eyes and imagining the music coming off the radio playing on my favorite classic country station.

Excellent song on every level and I enjoyed my listen so very much on this one.




Charlie,

Thanks for listening and the kind remarks. Greatly appreciated.

Bob, I don't think it's anything with the mix. I think it just something about the tone of the piano that is not my thing aesthetically. You did a great job on everything!! Take care. Greg

Bob,

That is a a wonderful song.
Nice harmonies.

A sad subject, a local vagrant died recently and he would have been stunned at the number of people who attended his funeral. This song should have played then for him, and of coure fr all the others.

beautiful song

Alyn,

Thanks for the kind remarks. There is actually good news on the homeless problem here in the States. Over the last few years, the number of homeless persons has declined as more people obtain needed care.

Love that chorus! Powerful and memorable lyrics!

Excellent blend of that guitar on the R and those keyboards near the Center. The music just envelopes the listener. I didn't want it to end....

Man. Awesome!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
