My daughter is getting married in September, and while we were discussing what song we will dance to, she asked me if I would write one for us.

She hasn't heard this as she wants to hear it for the first time when we dance.

All the instruments are Band in a Box, I just love this program, although it does make me lazy sometimes

Fitzy,

Beautiful song. Great vocal and harmony, and excellent tracks and mix. Super well done. Your daughter will have a lifetime memory with this.

You had better stock up on the tissues. There is gonna be a LOT of crying...

Wonderful.

Hi Fitzy
Well done! A Great song to mark the special day.
I'm sure that she will wet your shirt with tears!.
One Question - on the day, who will sing the song?
Congratulations
Ian

Had me from the 1st verse. My prediction is that when the sax solo begings you will look into each other's eyes and ball like two babies. In fact I'll be willing to put money on this one!

Get ready for the waterworks!

Later,

Really beautiful! I have 2 daughters, and both of them got married within 1 year, so I know what you are about to go through.

As has been said, good job with the vocals, the harmonies, the whole song. I know she will love it! And I know there will be tears!

Huge +1 to what's already been said. This is absolutely beautiful. She's going to love it and so is everyone else. I'm going to buy stock in kleenex now.

Great work.

Very nice. Your daughter will dance to a song her Dad wrote just for her - how cool is that?


Regards,

Bob

Thank you all for your kind words, praise from fellow musicians is high praise indeed. I intended to carry a clean handkerchief to give my daughter, but after reading these replies I think AT LEAST two will be in order!

I'm with Danny on this one. Does anyone want to bet us?

This is one fantastic tribute to your daughter as well as a very special song that she will cherish for the rest of her life. You should be very proud of this one!

Two thumbs up.

Hi Fitz,

What a beautiful, wonderful, special song. Everything about it is exceptionally well done - writing, arranging, singing, mixing. As Floyd said above "Your daughter will have a lifetime memory with this."

My best wishes to your all,
Noel

Band-in-a-Box® Country Music Add-ons!

Happy International Country Music Day!!!

You might not think of Band-in-a-Box® as a country music making machine, but you'd be surprised... there are OVER 850 Country RealTracks available!

See (hear?) the Country songs created by Band-in-a-Box® users when you check out the Band-in-a-Box® Radio playlists Country/EZ Listening/Folk 1 and Country/EZ Listening/Folk 2.

Feeling inspired to create your own Country song in Band-in-a-Box®? Pop into the RealTracks Picker and create your own custom country band by filtering for "Country" or choose an existing Country style within the StylePicker Window by choosing a "Country" Filter String (from the drop down menu).

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 French for Mac is Here!

Band-in-a-Box® 2020 apporte plus de 50 nouvelles fonctionnalités ! Des améliorations ont été apportées aux RealTracks (RealTracks vocales au son plus doux, Epaississement des RealTracks, fonctions RealTracks "Trouver un Subs" et Multiriffs). La majorité des RealDrums dispose maintenant de RealCharts (avec une notation Drums précise). Le nouveau navigateur d'artistes RealTracks permet la recherche d'informations/bios/liens/listes sur artistes RealTracks. Le nouveau navigateur de fonctions permet à l'utilisateur nouveau ou "tête en l'air" de trouver et d'utiliser facilement la plupart des fonctionnalités/raccourcis/documents à partir d'une seule fenêtre. L'égalisation du tempo permet de changer un morceau rubato enregistré en un tempo fixe. L'étirement audio temps/pitch a été amélioré (Elastique inclus).

ACHAT / MISE À JOUR, & TÉLÉCHARGEMENT MAINTENANT!

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.)
