A sad little song.



http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=1176543&songID=12172042




Summers

©2013 Robert Randall Burke


She sits at the window
And watches the rain
Gently fall below
Waiting for someone
Who won't come again
To share the fireglow.

Gone are the summers
Of sunlight and lovers
When laughter would ring in the air
Now she calls out in darkness
Knowing that no one is there.

Haunted by all of the unspoken words
The things that might have been
The tears on the window
That mirror her own
Sorrow deep within.

Gone are the summers
Of sunlight and lovers
When laughter would ring in the air
Now she calls out in darkness
Knowing that no one is there.

Bob, what a fantastic song! It grabbed me right from the start. Your vocal is outstanding and your lyrics well all I can say is WOW! Your backing tracks set the mood for this beautifully sad song perfectly.

This is a keeper.

Bob,

OMG.

Forget the fact that your production is PERFECT. INCREDIBLE.

Forget the fact that your vocal performance is PERFECT. INCREDIBLE. OMG.

OMG...

BOB!

This song is BEAUTIFUL. Period. BEAUTIFUL. <<< do you SEE the period???

It is like hearing Tony Arata singing "The Dance" at the Bluebird before Garth said "I gotta do that!!!"

I bow to you, man.

OMG.

Bob,

This is first class. Very strong and pretty melody. Although the story is sad, it brings out empathy in the listener as other songs like Eleanor Rigby does.

Sad but not maudlin. Often that's too thin of a line for song writers. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys. I know it's sad, but i don't think about them much. I just write them and move on. They are just sketches.

Hi Bob,

This is magnificent. What stood out to me most was the way you've used the minor key in this. It was excellent. In fact, everything about this is excellent - top to tail. My favourite lines were ...
    Gone are the summers
    Of sunlight and lovers

These lines really sit well in the mouth to sing. Brilliant stuff. It's got a good amount of what Pat Patterson calls "concealed alliteration". (Just like Gary Burr's refrain, "A Thousand Wild Horses, thunderin' behind me, hell bent on running me down" - found at this link)

All the best,
Noel

We're excited to say that all Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows UltraPAK and UltraPAK+ orders now ship on a USB 3.0 hard drive!

What does this mean? Faster hard drive transfer rates will enhance the program operations (faster time to generate tracks, reduced audio artifacts) and offer faster transfer speeds (typically up to 3x faster)!

It's a great time to order your UltraPAK or UltraPAK+ Upgrade... they're ON SALE until December 31st!

Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK $469
Upgrade from Version 2018: [color:#FF0000]$149[/color] (reg: $279)
Upgrade from Version 2017 or earlier or crossgrade: [color:#FF0000]$169[/color] (reg: $299)

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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.
