A co-write with Joanne Cooper.

Back some time ago, several of us (in this forum), wrote, recorded and posted songs about the plight of the rhinos.
(Joanne spearheaded that "movement").

This is one that never got posted.
So I thought I'd let it see the light of day.


WHAT WE GONNA TELL OUR CHILDREN

every year the number gets a little smaller
every year bone pile a little taller
rhino disappearing before our very eyes
poachers grow like a cancer
if not you and me, who will have the answer?
will you turn away when you hear their cries?

   what we gonna tell our children
   what we gonna say we did
   that we let the rhino end
   or that we saved them for our kids
   stand up for the sake of your sons
   raise your voice for your daughters
   give them a future
   together we can stop the slaughter
   so tell me...
   what we gonna tell our children

educate the world
it's just a fairy tale
no magic in the horn
just a con man sale
wasting your money
won't cure a thing
death of the beast
is all it can bring

   what we gonna tell our children
   what we gonna say we did
   that we let the rhino end
   or that we saved them for our kids
   stand up for the sake of your sons
   raise your voice for your daughters
   give them a future
   together we can stop the slaughter
   so tell me...
   what we gonna tell our children

A fight we should revisit often.

Great tune and poignant message. I had forgotten about the songs for the Rhino project. There were several nice ones as I recall.

Enjoyed this one a lot.

Excellent tune. Very powerful lyrics and vocal. African wildlife has surely been exploited. Super way to delivery the message..

Floyd,

Hard hitting lyrics delivered with powerful vocals and a great band.
Thanks for digging this up - I`m going to look back in the forum for the other songs on this theme.

Floyd. Thanks so much for posting this. I must say I was very dissappointed that I couldn't get anything going with the rhino thing. There was such an awesome collection of songs and a commitment from two top South African artists to record for an album.

We needed about R120 K sponsorship (about $10 k) to get the thing going and I approached about 50 corporate companies in South Africa with no interest.

I guess corporate South Africa is a bit over saturated with the plight of the rhino and is also probably dispondant that even with all of their efforts and money we do not seem to be winning the war.

After FAWM I will do a video of this one.

Floyd/Joanne,

Why wasn't this posted before ;-)
a very melodic and poppy verse with a good powered up chorus.
A very complete package!
Good work as always.

Floyd and Joanne

A powerful, powerful write, and delivery.

More musical class from you guys.

This is masterfully delivered, and sends out a powerful and vastly important message at the same time.

Just so well done.

Excellent! Powerful message delivered in a powerful way. Love the drums in this, did you add processing after the fact to get them to sound so good?
Anyway, an excellent write, performance, and mix, on my third listen.

floyd and Joanne,

This is excellent, really excellent: great lyrics, great melody, great singing, superb arrangement and a real power-house of a mix. I can't believe that this has been sitting on some proverbial shelf somewhere! From every angle, this is 'quality'.

All the best to you both,
Noel

Good song, alas the Black Rhino seems also to be extinct in the wild now too, so too late mate.
A re-write of it? Along the lines of I Shot the Sheriff, but ... ? As us humans are all guilty. F

What can I say that hasn't been said? Nothing!

This is another fantastic winner from Floyd.

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!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
