colly,

A really nice song - well done. It has a very cool sound overall...like a song that we might have heard on the radio in the early '70's (or late ''60's).

Nice grouping of instruments (you might want to list them so that others could know what to use if they want to create this sound). Well mixed. Well sung.

Nice job. Enjoyed the listen.

Colly,

Welcome back.
A good song with nice reflective lyrics and a really catchy chorus.
Your vocals sound strong and the harmonies work well.
Yes, please let us know which instruments you used - the guitars are great.

colly,

Very enjoyable. I really like the collection of instruments you've used to create your 'band'.

In addition, your songwriting is a credit to you... the melody and lyrics fit together really well. Your performance, arrangement and production also shine. You definitely sound like someone who's been doing this for a while!

All the best,
Noel

Colly,

Definitely a song from the late 60's early 70's
I too would like to learn of the instrs used but apart from that I really enjoyed.
A boy-band wearing tartan could have done/mimed your song and the girls would have been a-screaming uncontrollably grin

Colly,

A very enjoyable song with an anthemic quality to it.
I can imagine everyone waving their cigarette lighters to this one at a Colly gig.

Loved your vocals and all the guitars.

Nice one,
Jez

Awesome song, Colly. I love how the drums build up in the chorus, that's a really nice touch. The whole vocal performance is amazing too -- it'd be great to see a lyric sheet! (Ps. love the track art that you chose!!)

Colly,

Cool arrangement and vocal captures the nostalgic feel.
Seeing the lyrics would be nice - I missed some of the words.

Enjoyed it!

+1 on that track art.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
