Animal Farm

Leopard in his country house counting up his loot
Lizard on the hustings in his birthday suit
Fish is in the restaurant slippery as an eel
Snake is in the basement cooking up a deal
Bull is in the china shop, dogs have run amok
Tiger’s stolen all the cash, eagle’s passed the buck

You can run
but you can’t hide

Rat is on the make in a nightclub downtown
Horse in a bordello wiping off her frown
Rabbit in the spotlight, needle in his arm
Lion in a sports car, a gun his lucky charm
Pussy on the catwalk too strung up to ignore
Donkey with a wad of cash two asses on the floor

You can run
but you can’t hide

Lil red rooster huffs and puffs
Elephant’s in the room
Pigs are feeding from the trough
Monkeys sing their tune

Cockroach in a corporate suit powdering his nose
Hawk in a Bugatti hoping everybody knows
Ostrich in the courthouse, head buried in a brief
Parrot on the TV screen, pitbull for a chief
Swallow on the casting couch shoring up her fame
Spider on the world wide web where no-one knows his shame

You can run
but you can’t hide

You can run
but you can’t hide

You can run
but you can’t hide

EPIC! Such a well developed lyric, the imagery is amazing. Thank you for this really entertaining submission smile

Hey thanks everyone! Great to know the lyrics are entertaining. It is of course a lyric-driven song.

I've come across the ebook before Joe but, ahem, will flick through it again.

Great fun!
All the above seconded here on the lyrics... such a cool idea for a song. Your vocal fits the style really well.
Now I just need to decide which animal I`ve been today!

Matcham,

Some songs are more equal than others and this song of yours is excellent.
A great listen with some lovely imagery for the animals you chose.

A good fun listen

#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!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Ian McDougall:
RealTracks Set 13: Older Jazz Swing Soloists
RealTracks Set 15: Mainstream Swing
RealTracks Set 17: Bossa
RealTracks Set 19: Jazz Ballad

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

Welcome to the team David!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
