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
New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

Read all about this feature here, or check out our New Features Video (46:00) to see it in action!

Live Interview Today at 1pm PST - Aaron Short & PG Music's Tobin!

Check out Aaron Short's YouTube Channel today at 1pm PST for a LIVE interview with PG Music's Tobin!

Aaron's interview with Tobin is guaranteed to be entertaining and informative - it's a great opportunity to learn a little bit about the history of Band-in-a-Box!

We hope you can check it out! Click here for Aaron's YouTube Channel.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:
-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
-You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!
