Last year I woke up one morning and suddenly for the first time in my life I realized that I’m not just getting older , I AM OLD. The result of that early morning revelation was this song. I appreciate all that take the time to listen and comment. Tom

There’s Only So Much Time

I’d love to tell you I’m not scared of growing old
I’m not sure I can sell you on something you already know

That’s when we find there’s only so much time


I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time


I hope I remember when we fell in love
it was a cold november but it turned out warm enough
I guess I'm more than OK with an early fall
At the end of the day it was worth it all


I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time


Live our lives in the day to day
Never think it will go away
all the love and dreams we’ve found
one day will come crashing down

Think too much it’ll mess you up
And just when you think you’ve had enough
Along comes a vision and then you see
clear as day this was meant to be

I’ve heard the song before i’ve read the book you sent

God I Wish I could give you more i know how the movie ends


That’s when we find there’s only so much time

Tom,

What a great sound! Everything, absolutely EVERYTHING about this is as professional as anything out there in the market place. You really have outstanding production chops. I am constantly amazed at how incredible your mixes sound. There there's your signature vocals... first class!

Really, really, REALLY enjoyable.

Regards,
Noel

P.S. In relation to...

Now here it is a whole year later and the best revelation is that you're still here and pumping out great songs....

Great write, mix, production and performance.

Enjoyed this a lot and can so relate to it....

Tom,

All I can say is that I love this as much as some of my favorite Dylan tunes.

I am simply stunned.

Brilliant.

Noel, those are wise words. I will be addressing that bar revision in short order. Thanks for the wonderful review. Tom

Hi Tommy,

There appears to be a lot of deep introspection within this well thought out song
You have sung, orchestrated, and condensed it all into a beautiful song

Tom,

A beautiful write. You are really packing a wallop lately in your lyric... so full of thought. "From the heart" lyrics.

Beautiful production and mix. Everything sounds great. The piano is particularly nice.

Your vocals continue to pack a punch, too.

Super.

Scott, it was amazing the way the steel and fiddle real tracks layed in there. I'm constantly surprised at the way BIAB seems to know what I was thinking. Tom

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
