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

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"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."
-Sound-Guy, www.gearslutz.com

How I Use Band-in-a-Box® to Create Shots/Chops

Band-in-a-Box® user Henry Clarke creates a lot of great songs with Band-in-a-Box®, and he's shared his steps for creating the shots/chops within his recent song Lonely in a Crowd.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.
