Island

©2012 Robert Randall Burke


Island don't care if you're wealthy or pretty
Island is easy
Not hard, like the city
Ain't no more worry, no hurry
We're on our way home
And from this island I never will roam
Not from this island I never will roam
And from this island I never will roam.


Island will give you her fish from the sea
Island will give you the fruit from her tree
Ain't no more cryin', we're tryin'
To make it back home
And from this island I never will roam
Not from this island I never will roam
And from my island I never will roam.

Palm trees swayin'
And dolphins playin'
At my front door
Got no money
But ain't it funny
Couldn't ask for more.

Island don't care if you're wealthy or pretty
Island is easy
Not hard, like the city
Ain't no more worry, no hurry
We're sailin' back home
And from this island I never will roam
Not from this island I never will roam
And from my island I never will roam.

That's the kind of song we need at this time of year.
I like the idea with the wind and waves.
Good voice.

In mid 60's had assignments 5 consecutive years, about 2-4 months each
summer compliments of the military.

Getting away from the tourist traps, and seeing and meeting folks on two
different "Islands" was the real treat of being there.

Your music, lyrics, vocals with its laid back style fits my memories to a tee.

Missing the Mai Tai's tho.... Naw, not anymore, outgrew that.

Thank you for sharing you hard work and music!

The Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" Mode! #TBT

Did you know... the "Plug-in" mode was first launched with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows!

With the 2010 "Plug-in" mode, Band-in-a-Box® opened as a small always-on-top window, and acted as a plug-in for your favorite DAW/sequencer, so that you could Drag-and-drop MIDI and audio (WAV) tracks from Band-in-a-Box to your favorite sequencer. You could work in your favorite sequencer, type a progression in Band-in-a-Box, and then simply drag the track from Band-in-a-Box to your sequencer’s track at the desired track and bar location.

To learn more about the new features that were launched with Band-in-a-Box® 2010 for Windows, check out Band-in-a-Box® 2010 "Plug-in" mode feature highlighted in our Band-in-a-Box® 2010 New Features Video at 10:50!

The "Plug-in" mode development didn't stop there - With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 we introduced the "Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin" which now works DIRECTLY INSIDE YOUR DAW (Cakewalk, Reaper, Pro Tools, PreSonus, etc.). Learn more about this feature here.
