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

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.)
