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

We watched the video and really enjoyed it! We agree with Scott about the vocal having hints of ABBA. This very nicely done. Good lyric, vocal performance and mixing. Sweet!

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.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
