Hi all,

Along with Lady Mysterious, Fly and Matilda, this is our 4th collab with S.A. singer-songwriter Paddy Gobel. This one was entirely written and arranged by Paddy himself, we only did the vocals and the video.
Hope you like it, any comments are welcome.

Rob and Anne-Marie

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie!

Since you listed real tracks, I'll assume that your collaborator also uses Band in the Box to write his songs... correct? Cool!

Well, he couldn't have asked two better collaborators to sing and make his video! Those are two of your strengths!

Great clips used in the video! Across the board they were evocative images! And I always enjoy your singing.. I think you have one of the best voices on the forum, and Anne Marie makes the perfect singing companion!

I'm curious to know if it seems odd to sing somebody else's song. When you sing your own song, you are totally invested in it... but in a case like this you walk up to the mic with a totally objective perception of the song (or so I imagine)

Your thoughts?

Hi Rob and Anne-Marie,

"we only did the vocals and the video."
You did a lot. Without your vocals this nice song
wouldn't be what it is.
And the subtle choice of clips is the icing.
Very enjoyable listen and watch.

Guenter

P.S. What happened to your bedroom song competition?

Really well done!! Great collab. The arrangement is sweet-great use of the fiddle and pedal steel. The production and mix are up to your usual very high standards. Very nice in every way!! Take care. Greg

Rob and Anne-Marie,

This is fantastic! There's a clarity in the sound of the arrangement that I strive for but never manage to achieve... absolutely top notch! Phrases that sprang to mind as I listened were: "I don't think I've heard Rob sing better", "Anne-Marie's ability to harmonise is incredible", "How does he create such a perfect sound?", "really nice music", "outstanding video".

A 24 carat, pure-gold effort!

All the best,
Noel

thanks Patrick!
well, as for as interpreting someone else's song, this comes quite natural to us.
Paddy's musical taste comes very close to ours, therefore the vocals are never really a problem.
Besides, he send us a demo of the vocal line.

Speaking of videos: we really love your animation stuff!
That must be a whole lot of work compared to the videos we do.
We're almost afraid to ask, but we would love to have one of those videos for our own songs ;-)

Rob

I seriously doubt that! Your videos are much more sophisticated than mine, and you probably spend a lot more time searching for resources that visualize the lyrics in your songs.. to me, that must require a lot of patience and good judgement (two attributes I lack)

Rob

I'd be honored to contribute anything whatsoever to one of your top-notch projects! Just let me know how you want to approach it. I can't promise a fast turnaround, I have so many irons in the fire I'm already treading water to keep from drowning! But probably the way to go would be to start with the song (preferably a funny one, or the cartoon style animation would undermine the serious nature of the message).

I could try a different animation style for a more serious song... but that would require a learning curve that would increase the turnaround time.. and I think Anne-Marie's videos are so masterful at capturing the intent of your songs that anything I came up with would be a step backward in comparison.

Rob/Anne-Marie/Paddy...

A nice presentation. Interesting to hear you guys singing a different style than your usual. Tell Paddy he needs to jump in and be a part of the forum...

Thank you Rob and Anne-Marie, your love of creating music and song goes far beyond just ‘yourselves you love to help and guide people who share that love. I can bear witness to that in bucket loads
Your patience with this as yet still a dumb BiaB bunny, shows a generosity of spirit, matched only by your unique arrangement, and musical prowess.
Paddy

hi Guenter,

Thank you for your positive comment.
Sadly we weren't one of the winners of the bedroom song competition.
Those who did win were supposed to be called tonight with Skype.
well, we didn't hear anything so...
Like you mentioned before, it was apparently all about the amount of views.

regards,
Rob & Anne-Marie

You're right about the very cool use of fiddle and pedal steel, Paddy did a great job on that.

"Not a hair on her head needs fixing". Love that line. Good collab, Rob Anne-Marie and Paddy. (You have a slight Bob Dylan twang on this one Rob).
Enjoyed it!

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
