Love can't be taken for granted...

The Band:
Style is _BALADE.STY (Ctry Ballad w/ el. guit (85 RS))
RealTracks in style: 366:Bass, Electric, Country Ev 065
RealTracks in style: ~~365:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 085
RealTracks in style: ~~362:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming Ev 085
RealTracks in song: 1767:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm Pop16 Ev16 085
RealDrums in style: NashvilleEven16^5-a:Snare, HiHat , b:Snare, Ride

I played the lead guitars.
And vibraphone (it mirrors one of the guitars in spots).

Background vocals and harmonies: the janettes! (Janice Merritt & me).


STOLE HER

i found her crying outside the park
the tears on her face would break anyone's heart
he hadn't shown up....she needed to talk
i listened over coffee and a two hour walk
in time i made that girl mine
'cause some other fool was blind

   i stole her from somebody who didn't treat her right
   (how could he let her go)
   i stole her.. he got what was coming for not holding her tight
   (when she needed it most)
   love can't be taken for granted
   her heart can't take being alone
   i stole her from somebody who didn't care
   until she was gone

life gets hectic, out of control
that day-to-day taking its toll
doing the things that had to be done
neglecting the most important one
when she needed me i wasn't there
somebody else showed they cared

   he stole her from somebody who didn't treat her right
   (how could you let her go)
   he stole her.. i got what was coming for not holding her tight
   (when she needed it most)
   love can't be taken for granted
   her heart can't take being alone
   he stole her from somebody who didn't care
   until she was gone



Janice - Thank You!!! (you, too, Bud!)

Have at it.

floyd

Hi Floyd,

this is one of your stories I love so much!
First thing that hit me was the excellent
drums sound. And second the vocals and the Janettes.
So beautiful. It was an adventure listening
on my Stax for several times.
Your guitars give the song a nice recognition value.
Thanks a lot.

Like the song, love the lyrics, great choices of instruments and a quality lead guitarist....
Background vocals are excellent and set well in the mix.

Small nits - The overall mix lacks high's and sparkle, the overall mix comes across too hot on my system mildly distorting the lead vocal.
At the 1:02 mark - the word 'love' is lost in the mix.

Overall impression. A really good write and arrangement. This is another of your really strong songs that leaves me wondering how you aren't in Nashville writing for everybody and your writes occupying 5-6 spots on the top ten....

Hi, Charlie... I've put up a new mix. I fixed the lost love (HA! who would have thought!?). I've attempted to add a bit of sparkle. I'm not getting the distortion on anything I'm listen on - so let me know if you still hear that...

We'll sit and talk some day.... smile

The mix stole love, you treated her right and stole her back. Ironic? smile

Your changes improved things. Sounds better on my system. Distortion may have not been the correct word, seems it was more of saturation. Things are better now as I listen. Never was bad, just wasn't quite tweaked first go round for me.

It would be my pleasure to chat with you sometime.

Hi Floyd,
You always entertain me with your songs. I have enjoyed every song that you have posted since I have been on the forum. You have such a unique voice that just reaches out and grabs me and totally absorbs me into the world that you have created with your song and because of that unique voice, it is always the focal point when I listen. Your writing skill (and particularly this song) is just outstanding. The Janettes did their job to add spice to it all. Everything is just is excellent.
Sonny

Another great song Floyd and Janice!
We love the music and the way you're playing the guitar Floyd.
And especially the chorus is wonderful.
Good lyrics too.
Enjoyed it very much.

Floyd and Janice
Sounds very nice on my system lovely production. The guitar layering (and vibraphone) was superb and reminded me of Dan Fogelbergs playing.
Pretty melody and great vocal production all round.
Another good one.

floyd,

Brilliant song... yet again!

Your performance is outstanding and perfectly complemented by Janice's backing vocals. The thing that really stood out is just how incredibly professional everything sounded. The instruments you've used and the way you've mixed them just couldn't get any better. The melody and the chords... fantastic! This work could stand proudly beside anything coming out of professional studios. This song is definitely at the 'champagne and caviar' end of the spectrum of material that passes through this forum. Once more you've left me sitting here pondering.

All the best,
Noel

floyd,

you write a good love song straight from the heart.
You sing this with feeling, almost as if it is auto-biographical, which adds so much to the delivery.
nice harmonies from the janettes.

That bar goes up again, I need to be in the International space station to see it now laugh

wonderful

Alyn

WOW, what a song!! Very passionate delivery. I love songs where the groove just grabs you. This could have easily made a great Eagles tune with that hypnotic beat, the smooth BGs and the beautiful lead vocal. And the concept being turned around to the singer was really cool-crafted yet real. You are the Zen master Floyd!!! Loved it!! Take care. Greg

floyd. Great opener-" i found her crying outside the park
the tears on her face would break anyone's heart
he hadn't shown up....she needed to talk
i listened over coffee and a two hour walk " I was completely hooked from the beginning. Great lyrics, story and melody. The vocals are very strong. Nice arranging on the background vocals. Janice nails her part again. I am glad to hear you putting in your own custom guitar parts. As good as the real tracks are, it is very difficult to find those fills and lead parts that compliment the song. The mix sounds good to me. You can add this to your ever expanding list of well written and well produced songs. Tom

Hi Floyd.

You really have the formula for producing this sort of stuff.

Superb backing as always. Did you actually play a vibraphone (much respect), or are we talking keyboards, here? (Still respect, but a real vibraphne? I'd love to have one of those.)

Your vocals are perfect for this song and I particularly like your voice when you stretch into the higher regions. Janice? Well what can I say that I haven't said before? Amazing.

Wonderful song.

ROG.

Sonny - thanks - for all of that. It is getting to the point that the best listening I can find is right here on this forum... You have added to that... glad you found your way here...

PG Music News
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.
