A write, structurally, that harkens back to some classic Country. And an interesting lyric that keeps your attention.

The mix is stunningly crisp and clear - as always. Don't know how it could get better.

And, of course, the usual off-the-charts vocal. Such a pleasure to listen to.

Cool video.

Given your writing, production and singing cred your review made our year!
Thank you!!

Dear "Janice & Bud"...

Listening to pedal steel performances has always made me feel that it is the musical equivalent of the sound of someone weeping, and I mean from the gut. You two are messin' with my heartstrings on this one! Now, stop that! crazy

Would you excuse me for a moment while I dial the number to the suicide prevention hotline? blush

I didn't pay much attention to country/country western music until I stumbled upon Patsy Cline, who's voice froze me in time, wrecked me, and then lifted me up, and I...ain't...kiddin'. And then, Ray Charles happened with his album, "Modern Sounds in Country & Western." Ever since then I've become more and appreciative of those genres, because as far as the delivery of true, honest and heartfelt emotion, they can't be beat. I'd rather flow "tears in my beer" than "give it a hear", and then forget about what I heard.

"Out of Your World" is truly out of this world.

By the way, in the lyrics, there are the words "jack and coffee." May I ask what "jack" is?

Sincerely,

LOREN (a.k.a. "bluage")

Since I first listened to this some time back, I've been pondering the use of repetition in lyrics. Repetition is such a powerful lyric writing device. It's one of the most effective ways I know to amplify lyric content. After bouncing through Youtube from song to song to song, my quest to discover material that showed just how powerful repetition can be stopped when I stumbled on "Climb Every Mountain".

Here are the full lyrics...
Quote:
Climb every mountain,
Search high and low
Follow every byway
Every path you know

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
'Til you find your dream

A dream that will need
all the love you can give
Every day of your life
For as long as you live

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
'Til you find your dream

A dream that will lead
All the love you can give
Every day of your life
For as long as you live

Climb every mountain
Ford every stream
Follow every rainbow
'Til you find your dream



...And here are some links to what I consider outstanding versions of the song in very different styles...

1. A traditional approach with Laura Osnes and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkJNaTQgjKM

2. Barbra Streisand and Jamie Foxx with a showstopping presentation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86urFx1JnCc

3. Judith Durham (something Australian from 1971 and with a hint of Bacharach in the arrangement)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VM5SlHfdoQ

Oscar Hammerstein's lyrics are simple, direct and yet with the assistance of repetition, they create one of the most powerful and inspiring songs I've heard.

What fascinates me with "Climb Every Mountain" is that the "Climb every mountain, Ford every stream" section is sung three times and each time is alternated with the "A dream that will need" section. This means that after the first section ("Search high and low"), the remaining 5/6ths of the song's lyrics are driven entirely by repetition. Moreover, as the above performances clearly show, each repetition brings a boost to the emotional power of the lyrics.

Thank you for inspiring me to take this learning journey! It's been a valuable excursion for me.

I like the way that repetition has been used in "Out Of Your World". To my ears, the repeated opening section helps emphasise the sense of disappointment that the main character is feeling.

It's two thumbs up from me. You've both done an outstanding job.

All the best,
Noel


You never fail to amaze and humble us with depth of your music knowledge. Reading your thoughtful analysis and listening to the examples was very enjoyable for us. We streamed your response to the big screen so we could both enjoy perusing it. Thanks for your kind remarks regarding the tune and for the learning experience!

Top shelf!

Thanks Steve! I'm glad you liked the steel particularly given the amount of comping smile

Thanks Loren for the very nice review. Hope you didn't call that number smile

Jack refers to Jack Daniels. Never tried it with coffee but assume it could be a potent way to start a morning!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
