This is inspired from Pinocchio - "I just want to be a real boy" (but in a modern setting)

(Even though I shouldnt) I feel love
(c) 2017 Andrew Richardson

v1/
Everything inside is scanned, MRI'd and measured
All the things I've feared and all the things I've treasured
Byte by byte my memory's been analyzed and checked
Edited and debugged to eliminate defects

Chorus/
And when the wind blows through the long grass
Under pylons
CURRENTS pulsing from the wires above
There inside a she's in a tiny corner
And even though I shouldnt I feel love

v2/
I'm told that I'm not human - I'm a bio-robot slave
I have no heart to offer and I have no soul to save
I know they can re- program me, and they would if they knew
But I know theres more to me than all I think or do

Chorus

v3 /
She's in our master's garden as I work these fields all day
Her knowledge of me gone now since they wiped those thoughts away
A fire that could consume me or a beacon on a hill
Tiny sparks of human dreams I never will fulfill

Chorus

fabkebab, I really like this one up until that robot vocal. It was really buried in the mix and I kept hearing a very annoying squeal. It was perfect in between those two robot parts. This is just my opinion and others may or may not agree.

I agree with Mario. This is a very cool song. The robot voice does need some adjusting. I think the squeal is coming of the S's. Maybe too much reverb or something like that. But very cool lyric and vocal

Andrew,

A very interesting write. Shades of Pink Floyd mixed with a bit of Tull.

Nice vocal. Good mix. A captivating melody.

Andrew,

A really unusual song subject that,for me you`ve gotten inside with poetry.
I also liked your clear vocals and the melody.
Yes, maybe the robo voice could be improved, but this is good work!

Robert

I really like this, Andrew! A really great lyric write with a nice melody. I loved the narrative arc, and I loved the introduction of the robot voice as a new character in your song's story.

Hi Fabkebab
Really enjoyed your song.
Your voice and lyrics are great for the theme.
It's not often we get a fresh approach on the old love story.
Cheers.

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
