A little song to Penelope on our Anniversary. All BIAB except for a little rhythm and 2nd guitar.

The Little Things

©2015 Robert Randall Burke


An old guitar
And a beat up car
Just a couple dreamers
Wishin' on a star
We were young and blind
But the world was kind
I never thought
We'd ever get this far.


It's the little things
The little things
That can make a pauper
Feel just like a king
It's the little things
The little things
That make the biggest difference in the world.


Smoky cabarets
California days
Singin' for our supper
In the small cafes
We were young and free
You completed me
And saved me from my
Restless outlaw ways.

HI Bob ...

Happy anniversary to you and Penelope!!!

This reminds me of something Ed Bruce would have done in the late 80's. His voice is deeper than yours, but you have a lot of similarities otherwise.

Pretty song! Simple but enough of everything without a lot of stuff to distract from the great vocal and the message. We loved it!

Alan & Di

A terrific write, Robert...

You are a master at painting perfect pictures in so few words. This fits our story as well as it does yours (though ours took place on the East Coast - Florida to Philly)...

Happy Anniversary!

How about letting Penelope play bass on one of these?.... (does she sing???)

I like it!

A nice heartfelt tune - and a pretty melody with a catchy chorus.

It's a great day when all the little things come together -


Both in song and in life.


No little thing here, just another top notch song.

Happy Anniversary.

Hi Bob.

Another country classic!

Great choice of instruments and I always like the way you get so much emotion into the vocals.

Perfect arrangement and mix.

"It's the little things
The little things
That can make a pauper
Feel just like a king
It's the little things
The little things
That make the biggest difference in the world."

Amen....something the two of us have
lived for 35 years.

This is a wonderfully arranged, produced and sung
tribute that we both enjoyed...a lot.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing
RealTracks Set 17: Bossa
RealTracks Set 19: Jazz Ballad

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
