Usually when you hear the phrase " unintended consequences " it is about something bad. Not necessarily the case. Many thanks to all that listen and comment.

Wrong Turn

Always said I was a traveller never settle down

No woman’s gonna tame me then I’d laugh out loud

guess that i knew better than to believe in my own lies

a master of deception a total waste of time


late at night I’d have a thought life is better shared

Once again I laughed it off as if I didn’t care


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home



sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals

I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know

don’t want to have to go through all that pain again

Hard to feel any warmth at all from the places that I’ve been


Whenever it gets colder you can hear the north wind blow

And every time I hold her I thank God I’m not alone


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home


It was a wrong turn that led me to her doorstep

thought that I was on another road

It was a wrong turn but it was meant to happen

Sure am glad I took the long way home

Great intro, super guitar!

The intro is so important to grab listeners
and too often ignored by songwriters.

This has a strong hook

Such a solid song, has feeling and the execution
and production is top notch

Tommy you're a pro

enjoyed!

Kenny

Pretty much exactly what I was thinking.

Sounds like a hit to me, but then all your songs do!

Tommy,

Once again you have delivered a very melodic rock song, with very cool guitar work as usual!

Tom,

Now this is the kind of song I wish I could find on the radio -
a super intro ( so I`m not tempted to fast forward) and with a great hook on the chorus that had me humming along the second time round.
The bonus is in the lyrics - such a neat twist on the familiar and with some really cool lines:

"sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals

I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know"

Very enjoyable music!

Robert

Hi Tom,

Clicking onto one of your songs is like tuning into a radio station that doesn't exist but sure as hell should. We could listen to a station playing your songs all day - and probably all night, too.

As everyone has already commented, your intro is an instant attention grabber. This sounds as professional as anything we've heard here and a lot of other places. The play on words with "wrong turn" and "wrong way home" meld perfectly for the story in the lyric.

The arrangement is thoughtfully structured with lots of variety, yet keeping everything perfectly melded. Plainly stated, this is damned good music!

Thanks for a great listen.

Alan & Di

Kenny, I have always been a sucker for a signature lick. Think of all the great songs that you can identify immediately from the opening guitar part. Thanks for all the generous comments. They are appreciated. Tom

"late at night I’d have a thought life is better shared

Nice.

And, already mentioned...
"sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals
I've been Burned so many times Ash is all I know"

Consistently excellent. Write, vocals, mix. Nice guitar licks.

Super, super, super. Top-notch all around. (Think I'll just copy this for the next song...)

"sit here by the wood stove throwing memories in the coals"

What a killer line...could've been throwing letters or photos in the coals or could just have been letting thoughts flow into the coals.

And that is one line of so many fine ones. Everybody has mentioned the super effective hook and, yep, man is it ever.

The whole production is tightly glued together with your engineering skills. The loops, RT's, your acoustic/electric guitars all sound like a group of tight studio artists.

And the vocal, Tom you are stretching out more vocally with each production and it is working big time. Nothing really left to say other than "keep 'em coming!"

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."
