Mark this is awesome!

I really like the catch phrase! Very clever! And your use of realtracks etc is very good.. seamless mix! And I especially like the signature riff you played... great tone!

You said your voices wasn't up to the task, but I tend to disagree.... you have a great voice for this kind if song!

My only nit is that the vocals sound a bit far back in the mix on my system. There's nothing there you need to hide.. please do what you must to make them more prominent!

Two thumbs up!

Mark,
Very enjoyable!
I can understand how that phrase wouldn`t let you go without fleshing it out- the rest of the lyrics are good too (I would have liked to see them as there`s some wry humour its easy to miss). As Pat said, the guitar sounds great and I was also thinking I wanted the vocals more upfront.

Cheers,
Robert

An enjoyable listen. Mark.

The vocals are good! (just need to be turned up a tad).

Cool guitar licks (and tone).

I had the same thought. Really nice song!! You did an excellent job with the vocals but they are kind of buried. Would love to see the lyrics printed. Guitar is way cool! Great job!! Take care. Greg

Hello Mark,

Yes, the vocals could be a little bit louder indeed.
But definitely a smooth sounding song!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
