Rasta Santa

©2015 Robert Randall Burke


Rasta Santa
Come to the island
When his work is done
Rasta Santa
He's always smilin'
When he sit in the sun.

Rasta Santa
Come to Jamaica
Make everytin' Irie
Rasta Santa
Big party-maker
Drinkin' rum by the sea.

When the sun go down
Over Kingston Town
All the people come out to play
Music blarin' out
Happy people shout
Rasta Santa
Don't go away!

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

Hey Bob

I like that. Didn't know what to expect. What a great choice of Reggae.

Your delivery is superb. Accent and all!

Dreadlocks all the way, and the sleigh-bells fading in the background - Nice

Great mix and great fun song

Bob, I have a soft spot in my heart for this type of music. I was lucky enough to have spent 6 months building a house in Negril in the early 70's. No resorts or much of anything except beach then . They had just gotten electricity the month before I got there. There was a local reggae band that let me sit in now and then. They were rhythm monsters! Nice little write and very well sung. Great job. Happy Holidays to you and yours. Tom

Fixed: Sometimes the position of the VST/DX plugs window (even if not visible) would prevent a drop, such as into the drop station, from occurring.

Fixed: In Chords Window, you could not enter held chords on Piano track.
Fixed: LeadSheet might not display tied notes on the last bar of a track.
Fixed: Pressing "M" key in Editable Notation to insert a new note at the current time location on the Staff was inserting a duplicate note rather than inserting it above an existing note.
Fixed: Loading in a MusicXML file could result in MIDI notes of zero instead of the currect MIDI notes.
Fixed: Dragging a file into the tracks window didn't always result in the effects slot for the track being setup properly for the file type dragged in.

Fixed: Potential access violation when deleting a note in staff window.

Fixed: Jukebox not playing the playlist in correct order in certain situations involving stopping/restarting, etc.

Fixed: Potential access violation if song has micro-pegs and multiple notes on a peg.
Fixed: Accidental element that specified whether a note was displayed as sharp/flat wasn't eing saved to XML, even though the correct pitch of the note itself was saved.
