Walk In The City

©2013 Robert Randall Burke


Went for a walk in the city
Lookin' for a man
You can usually find him
Down by the taxi stand.

All the creatures were on parade
The creatures of the night
The vampires down the alley
Hidin' from the light
Hidin' from the light.

Music pouring out from the bars
Geeks staring at the passing cars
To get a glimpse of the fallen stars
On Hollywood and Vine.


Sweet Mary don't come around here no more
Said it got too tight
I'd like to say that I miss her
But that just wouldn't be right.
No, that just wouldn't be right.


Went for a walk in the city
Oh, walk in the city....
Went for a walk in the city....

Terrific, Robert!

Off the top of my head: Randy Newman meets Bruce Springsteen meets Warren Zevon! All of which are terrific. You have vampires where Zevon had werewolves.

This song would be a perfect entry for the first week song challenge on FAWM, which is "City Songs." You are prolific enough, go for it. http://fawm.org/songs/challenges/week1/

Robert,

Gotta agree with Brad...
>>>Randy Newman meets Bruce Springsteen meets Warren Zevon! All of which are terrific.
(some of my favorites!)

Great job! Very cool vocal - and good job on the harmonica (I assume that is you?).

I would have liked that piano mixed up just a little - that's what Bruce, Randy and Warren would have done...

Very cool, though...

Good mix and cool voice.
You didn't point out a harmonica Realtrack. Is it yours?

Brad, Floyd, Guenter,

Thanks for listening and commenting. Everything is RT except the harp - that's Hohner.
I would do the FAWM, but I'm busy trying to finish a bunch of stuff that's been kicking around for months, and trying to get some licencing placements.

Just doing what Peter advises - having fun.


Regards,

Bob

Hi Bob,

In my experience, all your work is top shelf. That was the mindset with which I clicked on the link to listen to this song. I had no doubts at all that I'd enjoy what you've done and be entertained. Then Soundclick started playing. What I was hearing made my eyes pop open!



This song is a real credit to you from every perspective - music, lyrics, arrangement, mix, performance. It's so very different from anything I've heard from you in the past that I had to double-check that I'd actually clicked the link in your post. You've sure raised the bar in the forum with this one.

All the best,
Noel

What a cool song. +1 to what's been said already. To me it has a Bob Seeger vibe in there too. Especially like that intro.

Well done.

Loved the song, music, lyrics, structure, and performance. Nice Hohner.

Overall very much like one of my favorites the late great Warren Zevon.

It is not an easy task to write and perform a song like this.
Few people can and do it extremely well. Most would try and fail. I would love to be able to do it but can't.

Excellent work!

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•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 The line.)
•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. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•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.
•There's a keystroke entry notation 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.
•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.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
