A co-write with David Snyder.
Don't let a hurricane go to waste...


I LOVE YOU WHEN IT RAINS

you and me behind the barn
storm clouds on the way
hear that thunder
bring it on, i pray
we kiss... it's lightning
those first drops begin to fall
i've got you right where i want you, girl
my back against the wall

   i love you when it rains
   a river flowing through your hair
   seeing you drenched in that old t shirt
   i bought you at the fair
   don't mind a sunny day
   but making love this way
   you drive me crazy insane
   god... i love you when it rains

kiss your neck, kiss your nose
kiss your body from your head to your toes
girl, my love
grows and grows and grows
tell me what you want
should we run for cover, safe, inside
or we can do it all right here
whatever you decide

   i love you when it rains
   a river flowing through your hair
   seeing you drenched in that old t shirt
   i bought you at the fair
   don't mind a sunny day
   but making love this way
   you drive me crazy insane
   god... i love you when it rains

let the heavens open wide
let it rain
let it rain
let it rain

   i love you when it rains
   a river flowing through your hair
   seeing you drenched in that old t shirt
   i bought you at the fair
   don't mind a sunny day
   but making love this way
   you drive me crazy insane
   god... i love you when it rains

Nice work... really good dynamics between the verses and chorus. The only thing missing is a soaring guitar solo.....

Good work on the collab

A beautiful soar to the melody on the chorus made the best of by the fine vocal - my favourite of your collaborations so far!
I could also hear a guitar solo in there... maybe David Lindley style slide.

David and Floyd,

Just one word pops into mind when I listen to this:
"this is radio ready!"
Definitely your best collab so far.

Floyd & David,
Great song and co-write and a killer vocal - Floyd that was brilliant!
You two are on a roll. Keep 'em coming.

ALERT, ALERT!! Apparently Bruce Springsteen is auditioning new songs on our forum under the pseudonyms Floyd Jane and David Snyder!! Seriously guys, this is fantastic!!! Chorus is magical. And Floyd, who always delivers a strong vocal knocked this one out of the park. Love the song, love the arrangement, love the vocal, and LOVE THE CHORUS!! A real treat to listen to. AWESOME!!! Take care. Greg

Adding a solo would make this too long... there is "soaring" in the bridge...more (from a solo) would get to be too much...

HI Guys.

Another classic track and professional in every respect.

I was going to go with Herb about the solo, but maybe you're right? If it was up to me, I'd have found room for some unobtrusive lead guitar ornamentation in the spaces during the last chorus - just trying it out now as the track is playing. Maybe it's not so easy to do with RTs.

Anyway, loved it as it is.

Cheers, ROG.

f&D, This is the sound of modern country. That steel is a great real track! The drums are absolutely killer! Top notch lyrics and arrangement as well as vocals. A brilliant collab and it's good to see you are both drinking the same kool-aid. Loved everything about this. Tom

This one deserves a lot of replays, there's like a great sweet spot when then song reaches the title line. The melody and the chords just open up and soar. I agree with all that's being said here, except no solo needed. This is a learning opportunity for me, great
skills at work here.

Kenny

Nice collaboration! Modern country at it's best in my opinion.

P.S. Floyd, I noticed in the song description that you are using loops from Drums on Demand. If you don't mind my asking, are you using BIAB to add these loops to the song, or do you use your DAW and add them after the fact?

(I am so out of the loop when it comes to this stuff, pardon the pun :P)

Great write, Floyd and David.

I love the muted electric guitar--it really locks in the groove.

Wow! This is so well done. I always like your work, Floyd, but I think this is probably the best I have heard from you. The production is superb, and this one sounds like it was just made for your voice. You and David are really on a roll!

Great work from both of you!

Steve

floyd and David,

I like the lyrics, whoever wrote them,
Quote:
we kiss... it's lightning
brilliant
and your vocals, floyd, were excellent!
I really enjoyed that and so gave the neighbours a treat yesterday! Volume at 11 and doors wide open, No complaints so far grin Amazingly, as I live in the middle of a town, a couple of Herons dropped in for a rest during the 2nd play of the song so even the local wildlife appreciates your music grin

The story in the lyrics will be re-enacted in town this week, not by me ...too old frown , as it is Fair Week and, as usual, it is raining and a bit windy, no where near a hurricane tho' thankfully.



thoroughly enjoyed

thanks for sharing
Alyn

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac users - a new FREE patch update (build 315) is available!
Review details and download here

Summary of changes for build 315 (Nov 15, 2019):

Fixed: Exporting MusicXML files was not working.
Fixed: When using "Auto-Hand split Piano track" feature, exported MIDI files contain wrong note durations on the Piano track.
Fixed: Note-based lyrics were not included when exporting MIDI files.
Fixed: User should be prompted to save their song when exiting, if they had added or removed plugins.
Fixed: The Record Audio dialog always says “Track type is Stereo” even if the track type is mono.
Fixed: The [Audio Options…] button in the Record Audio dialog was launching the Audio Devices dialog instead of the Audio Settings dialog.
Fixed: Loops dialog title bar displays wrong track name.
Fixed: Large patch map files are not completely loaded (were limited to 1985 patches).
Fixed: Notation context menu > Edit Section Text… did not do anything.
Fixed: Notation context menu > Insert Section Text… did not do anything.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
