Full 16-bar instrumental lead-in with RT jazz violin, then lyrics begin...packed full of short lines with as many rhymes as I could come up with...I like it lots!

Very well done. You hit this style dead on. Great lyrics.

You build up to the last "like you lots" very nicely, using the fills, etc.

I like it lots.

Tano

Really enjoyed this, lot of fun to listen!
The violin use is great, bringing the piano in is really nice touch.

Also your vocals for this are right on!

Different, but really catchy right on.

Thanks for sharing your work with us.

Hi Tano,

Very clever! I like it lots, too The concept of having a full AABA instrumental before the lyrics, is a common feature of songs from this era. It worked really well for me.

By the way, I don't think I've ever heard "apricots" in the rhyme position of a song before!

Regards,
Noel

Tano,

I'm impressed with your creativity. "Nincompoops" (I don't even know how to spell it LOL!) and "apricots" in the same song with an arrangement spot on the genre and very entertaining. It was fun listening to what you were going to say next! Reminded me of an old b&w movie where the characters break into song.

I liked it lots.

Thanks all for the nice comments.

I try to keep my rhyming dictionary at hand. The one I use is "The Modern Rhyming Dictionary" by Gene Lees. It's organized by sound rather than spelling, and it has some outstanding essays at the front that talk about the physiology of mouthing sounds, singing intervals, etc. that I have found really helpful.

Thanks again!

Very entertaining funny listening. Although I didn't understand every single word I got the idea and liked it.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
