Something Fascinating

©2015 Robert Randall Burke



You know
I know
There's something fascinating
Going on tonight
I know
You know
I've been procrastinating
Though I long to hold you tight.


Music and the moonlight
Puts my head in a twirl
Dancing with you in my arms
Won't you be my girl?


You know
I know
We've spent a lifetime waiting
For this night to come.


Music and the moonlight
Puts my head in a twirl
Dancing with you in my arms
Won't you be my girl?

You know
I know
There's something fascinating
Going on tonight
Going on tonight.

Hi Bob.

Wonderfully authentic period piece.

I've always been a fan of Fred and Ginger and this could have come straight out of one of their films.

Made my day.

Cheers, ROG.

Great photo! The dixieland ensemble sounds great. My
experiments with those RT's haven't begun to work nearly
as well as yours.

Grab a megaphone and you will have absolutely nailed the
vibe. laugh

A most fun over the cup o' joe listen!

As Jackson Browne said "Make room for my 45s, along beside your 78s, nothing survives but the way we live our lives". This feels like it was played on a 78. Wonderful tribute to the era!! You really captured it all (horns, vocals, LP sound FX). Very, very nice!! You've been on a roll!! Merry Xmas! Greg

Bob,

I love that 78 rpm crackle in the background... very creative! This is an excellent piece. This incredibly authentic sounding. BIAB sure is versatile in the hands of a master such as yourself!

Best thoughts to you and Penny for a wonderful Christmas.
Noel

Bob, Another good one. Sounds exactly like it could have been recorded back then. Really well sung again. You are producing some great music these days! Tom

ROG,
Thanks for the listen and the kind words. Wishing you a Happy Christmas!


J&B,
Thanks. We actually have a megaphone that I wanted to use, but we couldn't find it!


Sonny,
Thanks for the listen and the period appropriate comments!


Greg,
Thanks very much. I guess I've been watching too much Downton Abbey!


Noel,
Thanks for listening and the kind remarks. Hope you have a Merry Christmas Down Under!


Tom,
Thanks. Having so many styles to play with makes it a lot of fun.


Fj,
Brevity is the soul of wit. grin


Scott,

Thanks. My father played in a Dixieland band as a youngster, so I grew up hearing a lot of it.


Peter,
Thanks for listening.


Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy BIAB New Year!


Regards,

Bob

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
