Without Your Love

Guess I had to lose you to make the fire burn again
I needed to remind myself of places that we’ve been
I don’t want to go and try to face this night alone
There’s not a chance in hell I can make it on my own

Another bad self portrait it sits without a frame

Without your love around me it doesn’t feel the same


I don't want to go and try to find somebody new

what we had is more than enough

I guess I finally realize after all that we’ve been through

I don't want to live without your love

seems so easy to let love fall apart
Pack it up move on out make a brand new start
everyone should know by now we’re just victims of the times
It’s not the way it used to be somehow it just ain’t right

Another bad self portrait it sits without a frame

Without your love around me it doesn’t feel the same


I don't want to go and try to find somebody new

what we had is more than enough

I guess I finally realize after all that we’ve been through

I don't want to live without your love

Tom,

A good what-have-I-done write. "Guess I had to lose you to make the fire burn again" - really good opening.

Catchy guitar figures - you're becoming the king of those...Nice licks throughout.

Catchy rockin' song. Excellent mix. I like how you sang that last line!

Tommy,

Wow, very cool, again!
Is it me, or are your songs getting more and more commercially viable every time ;-)
That sure is a good thing (we try to same, ha ha).

Great, great stuff Tom!! Musically, it is a string of pearls, each leaning directly on the one before. Great hook line at the end of the verse. You have been on a roll for setting up the music with a killer guitar groove at the intro. I hear some Eagles, and some Beatles in this. Probably the most classic rock feel I've heard from you. Enjoyed the heck out of it!! Take care. Greg

Tom, you've always been one of my favorites, but these last few songs. It seems like you've taken it to a higher level. The production is so good, the guitar playing is awesome, tho it always has been, writing is so strong, these are great songs, this new one is very cool. Are you putting something in your coffee? Nothing illeagle I'm sure. What I'm trying to say is that I've become I big fan of your music!

but seriously, I know you've invested a lot of time in your music, from playing live for most of your life, to writing songs in BIAB now. All that experience shows!

When just the few opening bars says, here comes Tom Adams,, then you know you have carved your niche. The balanced mix you achieve between the music and your vocals is something to be admired.
Good lyrics, well sung. Top notch turn out

My gracious, this is a good one. New favorite. I have to agree, your work is getting stronger, writing, production, arranging, it's all top notch -- more commercial and radio ready.

I think loops are your new friend helping along as inspiration.

This is such a good listen.

Thanks for the nice comments. After hearing that last line I thought I should redo it, then it kind of grew on me. Tom

Man, it's so easy to take your guitar licks for granted when you've listened to as much tommyad music as we have and the reason is they are both seamless and at the same time so supportive of the individual song they are on. They flat work.

And when you really focus on them it's easier to see what a big component they are of your productions. This song is a great example of them.

So on to the vocals. Wow...they grab you with the first line and as mentioned it is a heckuva line (of many good ones). And there's so fine harmony also.

The way you've been incorporating those loops with RT's is something I want to be able to do when I (Bud) grow up.

Yup, gotta a little Eagles thing going here like Greg mentioned. There is so much to like here but as we've said before when the total package is this strong we have difficulty in parsing out all the individual components that make it work. It's more fun to just listen again.

Kudos!

J&B

I love the guitar hooks and the melody hooks. You make them sound unique and original. I'm getting a phasey swirl on the high fq on the vocals but it could just be my monitors.

You've got the kick and bass totally in the pocket! The transients are rocking.

Great write!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
