I wrote this a few weeks ago, my voice is still struggling to return after back to back thyroid/spinal surgeries but here it is anyway

I used the Brent Mason waltz realtracks and recorded vocals and mixed in Reaper

Out of Style

In a pile of old clothes on my closet floor
I found an old jacket I don’t wear anymore
And as I slipped it on I thought with a smile
Aint it funny how some things just kind of go out of style

In the pocket were pictures from an old photo booth
Black and white souvenirs of when we were two
I guess even the lost loves make loving worthwhile
Still, its funny how some things just kind of go out of style

Fashions come and fashions go, like the tides move out and in
Hot one day; the next passé it all turns on a whim

Photos and memories both fade with the years
As life turns the pages from laughter through tears
Hearts get discarded like the toys of a child
Aint it funny how some things just kind of go out of style

Fashions come and fashions go, like the tides move out and in
Hot one day; the next passé it all turns on a whim

So I slipped off that old jacket threw it back on the pile
Aint it funny how some things just kind of go out of style

Hi Zan,

I congratulate you on a terrific song. The music and lyrics are excellent and very engaging. I also congratulate on a fine arrangement; it glows with musicianship. To my ears, the mix is very well balanced.

From what you have written, putting this song together sounds like it has been quite a challenge. I've got to hand it to you, though, you've certainly faced the challenge head-on and created a work that is a real credit to you.

Regards,
Noel

Your song has a very relaxing feel. Your voice fit perfectly to this kind of music IMO

Thanks everyone, it's been a traumatic year. Being a singer/songwriter and having your neck and throat ripped open twice is quite an ordeal. Thank goodness for BIAB which allowed me to work on new arrangements with out a lot of effort while recovering

Hi Zan,

I absolutely love love love this song.

Only once before on here have I heard a song that had the "goosebump effect" on me. This is the second one. Your lyrics touched me right to the bone my friend. My bumps have never been more goosed!!

I've been checking out some of your other tracks on Soundclick and you are a talented songwriter. You have a lovely way with a line.

I wish you all the best and hope your recovery is swift.

Martin

WOW!

It’s all been said but I will add you are one hell of a lyricist! Fantastic writing job!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now 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 The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•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's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
