It's been a while since I posted song. Life's been a bit on the busy side.

Here is my latest...



For Charlie Fogle and HearToLearn, I've also written down a full description of how I created the lyrics from scratch. I'm very much a person who follows method and the document I've assembled outlines that method fairly comprehensively. If anyone is interested, it's in the pdf at the following link. (I suggest reading the document after listening. That way, what you hear won't be coloured by my process.)

  • How the song developed (the process, pdf)
(link no longer valid)

The song was created in BIAB, developed in Realband, vocals added and mixed in Reaper, Melodyne used for harmony.

Feel free to critique any aspect: song, lyrics, singing, music, etc. All thoughts welcome.

Regards,
Noel

[A1]
Don't want to go and grab a cup of coffee
Don't want to go and get me polished up for work
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do

[A2]
Don't want to go and fight the mornin' traffic
Don't want to go and face another nine to five
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do

[B]
If you were a season
I know that you'd be summer
You make me glad I'm alive
And when I am with you
We're Harlequin and Columbine
I thank the Lord you're mine

[A3]
Don't want to go, you're the blue sky around me
Don't want to go, you are sunshine with a smile
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do
All I want to do

Repeat B & A3

[TAG]
All I want to do
Is to stay home lovin' you
Yeah, that's all I want to do
All I want to do
To spend each day here with you is all I ever want to do

Hi Noel

Nice to catch up on your work again. I enjoyed the gentle groove of this song, and after listening it stayed with me, making me play it again; there must be a subliminal hook in there! The tracks are a perfect match for the lyric, and the whole is perfectly engineered. An excellent job all round!
cool

This is so beyond cool! Wow! I am SO appreciative that you did this! To see your thoughts and techniques in action verses having to guess at what you did...priceless!

I hear a bit of the beatles, the turtles, and just all around a great song.

I will comment more after the weekend when I can sit down and read all of the notes!

This is SO my kind of thing. I can't even begin to express my excitement! Thank you!! smile

Hi Noel,

what a nice uplifting song! It made me tapping my feet all the time. Great vocal delivery, nice harmonies.
I especially like the chords of the B part.
The RTs sound like made for the song.
I enjoyed several listens a lot.

Dear Greg,

What a great little song, this theme would have fitted in within any year, 50s to 80s, and works today. Its good, its warm and nostalgic, it’s just plain fun. I expected a megaphone in there any moment. We need more of this in our lives.

Very nice Noel!

Love that steady beat, that country boogie sure works.
The feel and structure of the song makes me think of....
Gilbert O'Sullivan (and I really loved his songs).

Noel, With each new submission your vocal performance exceeds the last one. Really well sung. This again has that great uplifting feeling that you are so accomplished at achieving. The mix is very clear. I enjoyed the intertwined harmony near the end. Thanks for the corresponding pdf. I am sure there is much to learned there. A great song! Tom

Wonderful feel-good tune!! Reminds me of McCartney. Melodically, it works perfectly-constant motion and perfect resolution. Instrumentation and mix are wonderful. This is a gem!! Take care. Greg

Hey John,

Thanks for the visit! It's great to see you.

Subliminal? LOL... now there's thought for the next song. Maybe I'll be able to conquer the world! I just have to work out how to do it in audio. I think the stars were on my side with this one... now if only I could drive midi as expertly as you! That would be fantastic.

All the best,
Noel

My thoughts exactly. I don't know where to begin so I'll start where this will end - Loved it from start to finish.

Caaron,

Thanks smile As far as I can see, there's no point taking the stuff that I've picked up over the last few years to the grave with me (although, hopefully, that's not in the immediate future!). I hope you get some value from it.

I won't promise to give some background on all my writes, but, if I have a bit of time to spare, I'll definitely keep you and Charlie (and any others I mightn't know about) in the loop.

All the best,
Noel

We think Paul McCartney would be proud of this write, vocal and production...
We are reading his new bio this song immediately brought him to mind.

We've said it before and will again -- you are a master of this type of
production. Bouncy and upbeat and the world needs more of it!

Looking forward to reading the pdf....

Great listen and a fine addition to our SC playlist.

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

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!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
