No man is an island and life is better when shared. A love song wrapped in 3/4 time. Many thanks to the very gifted and talented Janice Merritt for the harmony vocals.

That Night

I’ve always been a self contained man

never have needed a thing

A family of one a brother to none

A bird with a broken wing


All My Friends said I was foolish

To never have taken a wife

but I pushed them away and until this day

I never had learned how to fly



It hit me as soon as I met you

After one look in your eyes

one became two forever with you

I don’t know why But I fell in Love that night


Now that my world ’s been upended

I try not to give into fear

I’m simply amazed when I look down these days

The view’s so much better up here



It hit me as soon as I met you

After one look in your eyes

one became two forever with you

I don’t know why But I fell in Love that night

©2015 Thomas Adams

Hi Tom.

A simple story, skilfully told.

A fabulously rich backing supporting a wonderfully expressive vocal delivery.

Tom, you just keep on getting better... and then, of course there's Janice!

What a gorgeous song! And yes the backing vocals are lovely. Great job!

BTW, I don't think the soundclick link works. You may want to check that.

Great song though!!

Very pretty song - nice lyrics - and a superb arrangement.
Vocals both lead and backing were spot on and on top of that a lovely acoustic guitar.

Great job as usual Tommy. The simplicity of the style is beautifully offset by the melody, and great harmonies.

The pedal steel sits perfectly in the mix.

Very nice

I enjoyed the storyline. Great write, mix, performance and arrangement at every level.

The forum songs are getting so good that whoever eventually figures out the streaming scheme or how to integrate the User Forum as one of the 50 new features in 20XX version of BIAB may be the next dot.com billionaire.

You always blow me away with your production skills. That being said, the song is great! Your vocals are great and I like the lyrics. The big boys don't have anything on you.
By the way, do you know Mike Hedrick? He is very much like you in that he plays so many instruments...the pedal is his best know instrument. He has a recording studio in Jasper, TN not far from here in Chattanooga. We used him on one of ours albums when I was in a Southern Gospel Quartet.

Gorgeous writing, Tom.

"I’m simply amazed when I look down these days
The view’s so much better up here"

The very small number of words used to get to that point and make it so very powerful is a true lesson in "writing small". ZOWIE.

Your productions have gotten too good to even talk about.

Janice is...well.. Janice - what more needs to be said.

It's scary how good you have gotten.

A fan.

Good and effective writing here Tom!
The 3/4 works very well, so does Janice's smooth backing vocal.

A sweet, simple love song, so beautifully written and delivered!! Wonderful, heartfelt sentiment in the lyric, a Tom Adams (aka top notch) mix, and a vocal that no one (absolutely no one) could do better. Awesome!! Merry XMAS Tom!! Greg

Thanks, I have found the waltz steel real tracks are the best sounding ones. Thanks again for the nice comments. Tom

Tom,

What an amazing song with such an amazing sound! This is as professional as anything written, arranged and produced anywhere. You and Janice are a perfect musical combination.

As you've probably already picked up, much of my focus these days is on words. I'm a great admirer of lyric skill. When I listened to "That Night", I heard a textbook example of how to
  • develop lyrics
  • focus lyrics on a single theme
  • keep the tone conversational
  • engage the listener
  • make the listener feel like the song was written especially for him or her

To accomplish so much with so few words and to wrap it up in the elegance of simplicity is a huge compliment to your ability.

Heading back for another listen now...

Happy Christmas,
Noel

Sonny, Thanks for the great review. I am familiar with Mike Headrick. He has been in the steel guitar community for quite a long time now. Great player and teacher. Tom

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: When inserting hard rest, and answering Yes to question about removing notes for the peg, it would remove notes from both clefs instead of the clef that the rest was inserted on.
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: Hammer ons, pull offs, and slides are now being saved to MusicXML files.
Fixed: Exceptionally jittery timing indicator in the notation window during playback compared to older versions of RealBand.
Fixed: If the start of a generated section of a song didn't have a chord entered at the beginning of the section, then it could default to a C major chord instead of the most recent chord prior to the section.
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.

All RealBand 2019 for Windows customers can download the latest FREE patch update (build 5) here.

Summary of Changes in Build 5 (Oct 10)
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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for macOS Catalina

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit for Mac we added Drum Notation Support, and we didn't stop there! Other Notation Enhancements added in this new version are:

-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-Holding down the control key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-In the Notation Window Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-Notation is much clearer, not jagged, on retina screens.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-There is a keystroke entry mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, M to enter a third note, up/down cursor to change the pitch of the highlighted note, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
