Just love playing around with the different styles in Biab – from country to jazz, from irish folk to rock'n roll and a whole lot more.

This one is…
…a rocker, I think!

HAVE YOU EVER…?

Thanks again PG Music for making dreams come true!



Biab tracks and style used in this recording:

Real 995 Bass, Electric, HardRockLA Ev 120
RealDrums RockHardLA^1-ClsdHt,HlfOpHt
Real 686 Organ, B3, Background Pop Ev 120

Style is _HROCKLA.STY




Lyrics:

HAVE YOU EVER…?
Sometimes I wonder; what will come after this?
What is the next stumbling step that we do for our kids?

Did you see the man that tried to cross the ocean
with his family
The little boy that didn't make it
Another endless victim of the sea!

Have you ever seen daddy crying like a little girl?
Have you ever seen mums eyes looking beyond this world?

Did you see the man coming down from the mountain
To his kin
Carrying the deer on his shoulders
With a smile just like Huckleberry Finn

Have you ever seen your mother with such a big smiling face?
Have you ever seen your sisters and brothers so embraced?

Do you ever long for summer
Do you ever long for summer
Or is it winter, autumn or spring?
I wanna KNOW!!!

There's quite an issue here, and it's blinding my eyes
I try to open my ears, but still hear a lot of lies

Have you ever seen the Ministers, the Mullahs or the Presidents
Have you ever seen those power-people making amends?

Do they ever long for summer
Do they ever long for summer
Or is it winter, autumn or spring?
I wanna KNOW!!!

As a matter of fact, it doesn't mean a thing
We all have to make amends!

A great heavy sound, with a powerful introduction.

Ideal use of instruments.

The style worked really well and I did enjoy the listen.

Really great arrangement, and I agree with Floyd, the organ is so tasteful throughout. I LOVE the last "Do they ever..." section leading into that ripping guitar solo straight through to the end. Awesome stuff.

molsenhouse, man you have created a great sound here. I can tell a lot of love for your music went into this production. Great overall sound, guitars are fantastic and I really appreciated the way you used the organ sounds. But above that, loved the vocal. You remind me of Al Stewart, one of my favorites. Take care, Torrey.

Very good work indeed. You don't hear rock on the forum all that much.
The vocals could be a little louder in the mix here and there.

Great opening! Kind of SRV meets Bruce Springsteen.
The rest of the song has a J Geils, Centerfold vibe to it.

Vocals are top notch and also a tremendous production.

Nice one,
Jez

YEAH!! This one just feels good! Great road radio music. Organ sounds great (sounds custom played), and your guitar work is great, as are your vocals. AWESOME!! Take care. Greg

wow – thanks for all your great comments and thanks for listening!

videotrack, rog, tommy, floyd, alyn, will, rob and greg – thanks for paying attention to this song – the organ was generated several times – ended up with switching between two organ tracks to fulfill the song (according to my ears ;-)

scott, torrey and jez: "Ric Ocasek, Al Stewart, SRV meets Bruce Springsteen, J Geils, Centerfold" – I'M NOT WORTHY!!!

…but, thanks a lot!

jez; the lead guitar sound is actually based on a patch from my vg99 called; "Let SRV Dance" ;-)

torrey; the vocals – i'm working on it – i've never consider myself a vocalist (always been a "stringman";) – though, it usually works well for choirs and 2. and 3. vocals – but, thanks for your encouraging words – and your LOVE for music! that means a lot!!!

rob; about the vocals – i discovered that mix on the mp3 sc-file is more muddy than the original 24/48-file used for mastering – just uploaded the song for streaming on apple music/spotify etc., hopefully it sounds better there – and of course, it has to be played LOUD – "It's only Rock'n Roll!"

and robert; thanks for your comment about the lyrics – really appreciated it! :-)

What a great song. I've been hooked on your music since hearing "Cry,cry,cry". This is top notch in lyrics, arrangement, mix and production. It makes us all glad you discovered PGMusic's Biab and graciously share your work with us here on the forum.

Enjoyed my listen and will be back for many more.

joanne, janice & bud, bob:

thanks for stopping by, listening and commenting – highly appreciate it!

…and radio – yes, it would have been fun – maybe the PG Radio!

i just make music – don't know much about how to get "through the radio-jungle" with original music without a record company, not in my own country and definitely not on an international commercial radio market

but, internet has opened a lot of new possibilities – and this forum is really GREAT – the BEST!!!

chatting with all the fabulous people that loves music, makes music and share it for free – could it be better?

well, of course meeting all of you in a PG MUSIC WORLD GATHERING – in Grand Ole Opry, Nashville – that would be something… ;-)

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.)
