Oh By The Way..

For this one I did something unusual. I came up with a piano riff, and then I used ACW in BIAB to tell me what I had just played. The chords turned out to be a cool progression. So I used that progression in section 1, inverted it in section 2, and turned it upside down for the chorus.

After doing a pre-master with my own bag of tricks I did a final run through with the Lurssen Mastering Console. Have fun. smile

Oh By The Way
By David Snyder

V1

Oh by the way
This world’s a prison
So I climbed over the walls
And I drive hard against the rain
I can no longer
See what I’m missing
It’s just the forest and the trees
The fog has settled on the leaves
Settled on the leaves

V2

And there’s a rumbling
Beneath the surface
I don’t know what it is
or what it really means
But I am walking through these catacombs
And I can tell it isn't home
I can tell it isn’t home

V3

Oh by the way
I am an orphan in the universe these days
So I am searching
for a place to call my home
We are deserted, and disregarded
And there’s no one useful
on the phone
no one useful
on the phone
no one useful
on the phone

CH:

Hello my children
Come join the circus
I think you know that it’s the only show in town
If you can find it
Your higher purpose
Then could you lead us please to slightly higher ground
Oh could you lead us please to slightly higher ground
Yes could you lead us please to slightly higher ground

Inst.

V4

We fight for water
But I am thirsty for things
This world cannot satisfy
Run for the border
If you can find it
Maybe you’ll find an angel walking by your side
Run for the border
If you can find it
Maybe you’ll find an angel walking by your side

Hi David.

Great track! Why am I left thinking Pink Floyd?

These are the sort of lyrics to which everyone manages to relate, but to which everyone applies a different meaning. Very deep.

Loved the whole feel of the track and was impressed with the chord sequence.

Excellent mix in the phones and on the mains.

Most enjoyable.

ROG.

David,

I've have been enjoying all of your edgy songs lately. They have a bite and presence that really looms large, in addition to the excellent vocals and production values.

Awesome!

Bob

David, I like the way you think outside the box (no pun intended). You constantly explore the limits and boundaries of the program and make things work in a nice way. I liked that chord progression in those verses. I was reminded of Led Zep in this. Thanks, Torrey.

Great work and interesting arrangement.

Very creative and different, as always!
Intro is great. Neat progression and cool the method you used to generate it.

Lots of great lyrics, my favorite line is "Oh by the way
I am an orphan in the universe these days"

Nice one, David!

Hey Rob and Anne-Marie,

I know, I know, it is hard for me to show my emotional side, but sometimes I break through.

Awesome song.

Awesome songwriting. One of your best, I think. There are wonderful lines throughout this...

"So I climbed over the walls
And I drive hard against the rain..."

"I am an orphan in the universe these days..."

"We are deserted, and disregarded
And there’s no one useful
on the phone..."

"could you lead us please to slightly higher ground..."

"We fight for water
But I am thirsty for things
This world cannot satisfy..."

...to mention a few.

Super band! Great use of the boys in the Box.. and your own additions...

Well put together. Good mix. An excellent listen - truly...

Major Sound!

love what's going on here,

it is a really good vocal

I thought of Peter Gabriel, listening to this

very dream like lyrics

some dark and even sarcastic, some slightly hopeful

that's just what I got out of it, it's open to many interpretations

enjoyed it

Kenny

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!
