Party On The Porky Island

Summer is coming, or has already arrived somewhere, so it is time to open the barbecue season. Hopefully you can find the right mood with this reggae song smile BIAB provides excellent realtracks also for reggae.

This is yet another collaboration with Miira, we have written the lyrics together. Music and arrangement is by me and Miira is taking care of the vocals.

And to whet your appetite, there is also a video available.

This is actually the second part of our Till Meat Do Us Part trilogy, the first song was the title track.

Lyrics:

Party On The Porky Island

Sun, the friendly host
shining on the giant roast
chicken drumstick in your hand
enjoy the beat of the band
party on the porky island.

Gushing plate for lunch
oozing grease from the grill
glass is full of punch
belly asking for refill
I'm in trance
I'm in love with this meaty romance
at the party on the porky island.

Waves, the foamy dream
cherries on the ice cream
people joining in this fat feast
they loosen their belts, lusts released
party on the porky island.

[Chorus]

Join the party, celebrate
it doesn't matter how much you have overweight
barbecue, roast and stew
come, come, have some rum
drink, eat, have fun, and shake your bum.

Sea, the salty taste
sweat drops on the growing waist
pancakes on the frying pan
now eat as much as you can
party on the porky island.

[Chorus]

--------
Janne

I totally agree!

A carefree happy toe tapping masterpiece.

Hi Janne,

A very refreshing summer song!
But... Rob didn't like the video all that much, being a very convinced vegetarian cry
But all in all... very nicely done.

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
