Interesting song theme, and a great presentation.

I liked the 'urgency' that you captured so well.

Harmonies worked well, too.

Great title and the song has a sort of 50's teenage feel to me.
Good fun. Cheers.

Rode my share of Greyhounds in the 80's and lived to tell. This is an interesting song/lyric! Interesting rhymes ("for her" and horror"-probably never been done before) Dusty did a great job on the vocals! Very cool! Take care. Greg

Thanks for all the great input! "So, where was she?" Doesn't really resolve, does it? In real life, she was on the next bus. OR...COULD have been. smile

After some consultation, the "for her"/"horror" rhyme is listed in online rhyming dictionaries, which I doubt the lyricist consults, but honestly can't find an example of its use on Google. So at least rare, if ever done before. Lyrical easter eggs are often tucked in his lyrics...

REALLY appreciate it!

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
