Hi All,

Well here it is:Dance With me in Orkney

It is different from other songs I have written as I used a RealStyle that I made myself (see Song Summary below)

If you feel your feet tapping don't blame me HaHa

Lyrics

Come with me to Orkney
Green Islands in the sea
A timeless place awaits you
And tomorrow you'll be free

Dance with me in Orkney
At the closing of the day
Watch a blazing sunset
And dance the night away

A new day here in Orkney
Will fill your heart with peace
You can be quite certain
Your cares and worries all will cease

Instrumental

Dance with me in Orkney
At the closing of the day
Watch a blazing sunset
And dance the night away

Sing the songs of Orkney
Hear the fiddles Play
Watch the seabirds soaring
And toss all your cares away

Instrumental

Dance with me in Orkney
At the closing of the day
Watch a blazing sunset
And dance the night away

Come with me to Orkney
Green Islands in the sea
A timeless place awaits you
And tomorrow you'll be free

Thanks in advance for taking a listen.

Regards
George

Great Dance beat, would never had dreamed it could fit
this type of song.

The lyrics are simple but fit the song great.

My monitor system Sub is a bit hot, maybe tiny bit lower
on bass/drum.

Fun music, can just see groups of folks with beers in hand
dancing about.

I've only been to U.K. one time, Upper Heyford, Cambridge doing the
pub rounds. then 36 hours in London. Just a tease. 1965, just few years
ago.

Thanks for sharing your neighbors lyrics, and your hard work!

Hi Seeker,

I wanted to write a song that was out-with my normal scene.
I wanted people to dance and have fun.
I know that the bass and drums are a little hot, but, isn't that what is popular today?

Anyway, I thank you for your comments.
If you ever get to Scotland you will enjoy your visit (no need to go on pub crawl)

Best regards
George

George,

That is true. I have kicked up bass in my songs after
listening to a lot of others wit heavy bass.

It is a great fun and dance song, hope you can play it at one
of your pubs.

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!

My New Favorite Thing - Extra Style PAK #9 with Loop Pack #2

I set up an eight bar progression with some simple pushes, shots, holds, and rests for reference. Then I started auditioning styles--Three hours later, I am invigorated, inspired, and just plain smiling big. Really CHOICE! From "down to earth" to eclectic, this is a really fun pak.

Great job, folks!
