I thought that it was probably time for me to introduce a bit of local scenery into one of my songs.

I live in Melbourne (Australia). It is located on the northern end of a pretty large bay called Port Phillip Bay. Around the edges of this bay are many local (sub)bays and beaches. One of those bays is Apollo Bay. It is a popular holiday location for locals and tourists.



Using Apollo Bay as a setting, I thought I'd write a story about someone who might live there...




...I hope you enjoy it.

Please feel free to comment on any aspect of the song.

Regards,
Noel

Lyrics
Standing on the beach at Apollo Bay
She stares at the distant horizon
A friendly wind blows
A seagull circles low
And as the blue fills with rolling waves
She feels her spirit brighten

Standing on the beach at Apollo Bay
She thinks about the father of her daughter
For three years, he’s been gone
And with courage, she carries on
But her heart longs for a future day
When he’ll fly across these waters

Twisting a golden ring around her finger
She says to the ocean, “This life with a soldier means taking each day at a time”

Standing on the beach at Apollo Bay
She faces those fears that come and greet her
It’s love that keeps her strong
Gives her power to travel on
And she’ll endure whatever comes her way
This life will not defeat her

Thinking about her daughter and the years ahead
And if she has to, she’ll battle heaven and earth, if that’s what it takes to survive

Standing on the beach at Apollo Bay
She faces those fears that come and greet her
It’s love that keeps her strong
Gives her power to travel on
And she’ll endure whatever comes her way
This life will not defeat her

Yes, love keeps her strong
Brings her hope when things go wrong
And she’ll cope, whatever comes her way
Life will not defeat her

Noel,
I liked the way your story drew me in - the first verse really sets the scene.The folky melody suits the lyric( and takes an unexpected turn in the chorus). Your vocal is assured and distinctive... a bit like the ever positive feeling of your songs.
Oh and very well produced!

Robert

Wow, Noel. This is genius songwriting.

I have to be impressed with the way you have crafted the rhyming nature of the lyrics.

Very clever rhyming of lines 1 & 5 and 2 & 6 and then carefully and masterfully creating a separate rhyme by introducing symmetry with lines of 3 & 4 of each verse.

The further exceptional achievement is the creativity of the story line that embraces the entire song.

Thank you.

Excellent, again.

Cool song!

great writing as usual and I agree with Robert

in that the folky melody suits the lyric and then

takes an unexpected turn in the chorus (which I really like)

it sounds Country there to me. Another strong very likeable song.

Ho Noel,

It's not always easy to paint a masterpiece with words but you managed to do so exceptionally well. As Kenny mentioned, the chorus takes us to slightly different feel - Country-Rock rather than Folk-Rock. They work very nicely together. Each chorus raises the interest in the song, as a chorus should.

Your technical production expertise shows through quite vividly. You have a nice touch with the "knobs". We were right there over-looking the water and enjoying the view with sweet music in our ears. Really nice! Wishing you well.

Alan & Di.

Hi Noel.

A beautiful song and a great arrangement.

I liked the pick-up into the second verse and the way it kicked again into the bridge. Very professional.

Good story-line, but then your lyrics have always been a strong point of your songs.

Enjoyed the whole thing.

Cheers, ROG.

An excellent folk song that tells a story beautifully. Reminds me a bit of Eric Bogle.
Great work.

This is a new favorite for me... What a beautiful song - love the vocal. It reminds me of Roger Whittaker. Great arrangement and mix as well.

Excellent!

This is a real masterpiece, and I love the band!! It doesn't get much better than this. This is a top quality write, mix, arrangement, performance and production. You've made all the right choices.

The overall writing and production in the forum has improved in quality over the last few years as well as the quality of realtracks and features of BIAB. It's no longer unusual to hear a very professional sounding production and this is a good example of a radio ready home produced song. Super write and production. It's been several years now since I could keep pace with the rapid growth you and others have achieved in the top quality professionalism of writing and production. You are inspiring a whole new generation of home recordists and consistently displaying the amazing benefits of BIAB.

Not only do you have perfect command over lyrics, you are getting really good with your production techniques and arranging skills. This is a complete package for me and I've enjoyed my listen from start to finish each time I've played it through.

Hi Robert,

Thank you for the visit.

It took a bit of trial-and-error to get this backing together. Deciding on the best over-arching sound and style was a puzzle for me. Whatever I chose, the ballad nature of the melody/lyrics often seemed to be having a tug-of-war with the tempo (120 bpm). This made selecting suitable RTs more challenging than usual. It was an interesting journey!

Thanks again!

All the best,
Noel

Very nice, Noel! The arrangement fits the song well, and your vocals are very nice on this one. As usual, your lyrics are well crafted. You always have a way of presenting difficult times/situations with a strong sense of hope. I like that about your writing. Really enjoyed this one.

Steve

Hey Trev!

Thanks for passing through the thread. And thanks for all those comments! As much as I'd like to claim credit for the rhyme scheme, I can't. I accidentally stumbled on this pattern when I was zig-zagging around the internet a couple of weeks ago and looking at lots of poetry.

Michael Drayton (1563 - 1631) wrote a poem called "Ode To The Virginian Voyage" where he used this rhyme pattern. When I saw it, I was determined to test run it. My poetic meter is different from his but the rhyming is the same abccab sextet. It's a very effective structure to augment feelings of 'not quite happy but happy enough'.

I'll definitely use it again sometime.

All the best,
Noel

Noel, The first thing that stood out to me was the unusual rhyme scheme that was handled with great skill. Pro production and a fine vocal. The image of looking out at a great expanse of natural beauty while reaffirming life's choices was an inspired concept. Great song! Tom

Built-in Audio Chord Wizard Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

Our Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows version includes some great enhancements to the Built-in Audio Chord Wizard!

-The built-in Audio Chord Wizard is now accessible from the [Audio Chord Wizard] button.
-The Audio Edit window now displays chords and tempos for each bar. They are shown when the Audio Chord Wizard mode is active so that you can see the tempo for each bar as you set the bar lines.
-When you start entering bar lines, the program automatically sets the tempo to the tempo of the first bar.
-Once the tempo of the first bar is set, the program automatically moves the location of the first bar of audio over so that the visual space of the count-in bars is visible.
-After you’ve added the bar lines, IF you adjust the first or second bar and the tempo of the first bar changes accordingly, the program automatically changes the tempo of the song to match.
-Multi-window display. This gives the Audio Chord Wizard a multi-window view so that you can see and edit both the Audio Edit window and the Chords Sheet at the same time. This display is best viewed with a small toolbar mode. This allows you to see the chords as they are being interpreted by the wizard.
-The Audio Chord Wizard can send the transcribed MIDI notes to the Soloist track for further analysis by the user (via Piano Roll or Notation window). Note that this is a "snapshot" view every 8th note of the pitches present, not an attempt at polyphonic transcription. To use this feature, enable the "MIDI to Soloist" check box.

New Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Window in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, the Guitar window has been remade and now supports the left-handed (in addition to right-handed) guitar and student view!

The student view is the view a student (or YouTube video watcher) would have of the (right-handed) guitar facing him with the head at the right and low notes at the top. There's also a left-handed student view, so all 4 possible views are supported.

To change the view, press the [Guitar] toolbar button to open the Guitar window and then the [Settings] button.

See this new feature in action when you jump to the "Left-Handed & Student View Guitar Fretboard" topic in our 2020 New Features video: Click here...
