Those Eyes

Here is an old one brought up to date with one of the new styles. A little rough round the edges but the new style gave it quite a lift.

Leon lyric & vocal.
I played intro harmonics, and acoustic guitar along with the Fingerpicking real track.
Once the band starts I played the additional dobro and guitar solo at the end.

Style is _SMBRERO.STY (Sombrero Dreamy Tex Mex Country)

RealTracks in style: 1293:Bass, Electric, TexMexCountry Ev 120
RealTracks in style: 693:Guitar, Acoustic, Strumming AcRockBright Ev 120 (B:eighths)
RealTracks in style: ~522:Guitar, Acoustic, Fingerpicking Ev 120
RealTracks in style: ~543:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Dreamy Ev 120
RealDrums in style: TexMexCountryEv8^1-a:Groove, Shaker & Scrapper , b:Ride, Shaker & Scrapper

Those eyes

Who could resist the lure
of those eyes
The way they sparkle
the way they hypnotise
surely I can’t be blamed
for falling in love with you
it seems to me to be the only
possible thing to do

oh those eyes
will be the death of me
clear as the sky
deep as the sea
oh those eyes
the things they see
brim full of life
and complexity

who could resist the lure
of those lips
when she smiles
the men run for the ships
surely it’s not my fault
that I’m head over heels for you
it seems to me to be the only
acceptable thing to do

oh those lips
they’ll be the death of me
soft as a breeze
sweet as honey from the bee
oh those lips
all the things they do
weaken my knees
whisper a fond adieu

who could resist the power
of her mind
delicate, funny
insightful and refined
surely I’ll be forgiven
for loosing my heart to you
it seems to me to be the only
sensible thing to do

Who could resist the lure
of those eyes
The way they sparkle
the way they hypnotise
surely I can’t be blamed
for falling in love with you
it seems to me to be the only
possible thing to do

oh those eyes etc

I loved the opening intro. Very nice chord progression that matched the Xtra style quite well.

Enjoyed my listen.

I also really liked the intro and the style fits very well- it sounds relaxed so no need to smooth the edges... and capped with a tasty guitar solo at the end.
love the lines:

who could resist the lure
of those lips
when she smiles
the men run for the ships

Peter, I really like the interesting intro and the build.

Great effort.

The style sits perfectly. Nice job with the vocal doubling.

Hi Peter and Leon,

Wow, really like this one! I was waiting while listening to the verse, what the chorus would sound like, well:
that was no disappointment. Leon, very good vocals on this one too.
Your best to date I think.

Really enjoyed "Those Eyes" Peter. Great mixing of RTs and real instruments.

And of course loved the guitar solo at the end smile

Great job,
Rec

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
