Black And White Movies

I watched Casablanca last night
Some things just never get stale
You loved candlelight
Never thought that we would fail
Your eyes searching my face
Your breath quick in my ear
Rocked in your embrace
There was nothing to fear

Safe in the knowledge that you understood my mind
There’s nothing of more value you can find
Safe in the knowledge that I’d always have a friend
Ain’t it funny how that kind of thing can end?

Had a glass or two of good red wine
Smiled about that bottle that we stole
Thought about your body next to mine
Thought about the stories that we told
Never seemed to get our timing right
It was never meant to be
Slam the door, shoot out the light
Let the darkness cover me

Safe in the knowledge that you understood my mind
There’s nothing of more value you can find
Safe in the knowledge that I’d always have a friend
Ain’t it funny how that kind of thing can end?

Safe in the knowledge that I’d always have a friend
Ain’t it funny how that kind of thing can end?

Peter,

Very nice melody and lyrics. Good vocal by Leon. Had a cool Paul Simon vibe to it for me. I really enjoyed this.

Peter,
Very good song!
The lyrics are well crafted ( such a great opening line!), and the vocals by Leon warm and natural.
Nice guitar break at the end.
Your production is topnotch as usual.

Robert

Peter/Leon,

A nice write, guys. It has an interesting "casual" feel to it - the lyrics have a nice "flow".

Nice arrangement and mix. Really like the sound of the reggae organ for this (never considered using that - thanks!).

Cool guitar outro...

Enjoyed it.

"Safe in the knowledge that you understood my mind

Ain’t it funny how that kind of thing can end?"

Strong write! It's hard to shake loose of those lines. Like mr jane said "causal and flowy feel." It seems to move along like a gentle stream. The entire production works for us in all aspects. Nice vocal, choice of RT's, mix and as several have mentioned the outro just nails it.

J&B

PS floyd has mentioned it....but, yeah, the use of that reggae organ was a surprise and very creative. BTW, Janice could watch old B&W movies for an eternity or two smile

PG Music News
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...

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."
