OK, here is my entry.....Lovely Mystery


https://soundcloud.com/oim-review-tracks/lovely-mystery-sept-2016-ttm-odc-smurf



The style used is _BADLAND.STY Badland Baritone Rockabilly - 100bpm A (F#m) from the Country Xtra PAK


I kept the main chord structure with some rearranging becasue I liked it. After setting everything to gen simply, I re-gen the tracks until I was happy, then exported the individual tracks out to the daw. and added guitars & vocals. Lyrics are below...

=====

Lovely Mystery J. Smerk 9-12-16


She likes holiday bustling, he likes serene
She likes being around crowds, he avoids the scene
She likes 5 course dinners, just a happy meal for me please

She likes to drive Cadillacs, he's happy with a truck
She likes board games, he likes to try his luck
She likes to hear the violin, while he plays the fiddle
(It's such a riddle)

Chorus 1

It's a mystery what drew these two together
And thru the years they have survived all kinds of weather
Kids & homes & family mess, with the memories that they bring
Of pain & loss & the joy, that makes their hearts sing

She likes to go shopping, for him its such a bore
She likes yachts & boating, he likes to row his own
She likes hand dipped ice cream, he takes the gallon home
(But I never eat alone)

Repeat Chorus 1

She likes to babble on, he says a word or two
She does 5 things at a time, he'll see one project thru
She dresses up the dog, while he cleans up the poo
(Or it gets on your shoe)

Chorus 2

It's a mystery what drew these two together
And thru the years they have survived all kinds of weather
But when the lights go down, these two people can agree
The differences are minor, to the love that's shared between


Enjoy! cool

Hey, I enjoyed this! The lyrics are well put together and the delivery spot on.
It kinda reminds me of REM in places.

Also liked the additional voice effect at the end of each verse sort of like a "thought bubble".

Cheers

Thanks receder!

I am working my way thru the entries and I have to say, there is some great talent on here! I always knew that there was, but it has been a few years since I have REALLY sat down & gave a lot of the tracks a good listen to.

Great job folks, ya all are some solid musicians!

I agree with Receder on the REM sound. I'm a big fan of REM.
So yes, like this song too!

Thanks once again folks! I have had a few folks say that I remind them of REM....I guess I need to go give them a good listen to.

And I THINK that I have made it thru all the entries.....and I can honestly say that I am happy that I am not the one that has to do the selection, there are some great tunes here!

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
