My wife and I are celebrating our 40th.

Here are a few of the reasons why...


LITTLE THINGS

you always know where i leave my keys
pick up my clothes, say "can't you please"
let me read the paper before you're done
hand me sunglasses, "don't squint in the sun"
letting me know when i cross a line
always reminding me to be on time
the little things that say you'll always be my girl
they make all the difference in the world
   
   the little things we sometimes don't recall
   the little things that make a big man fall
   you think they don't mean much
   but let me tell you girl
   the little things make all the difference in the world

it's the vitamin you make me take each day
the look i get for stupid things i say
that touch that tell me "it'll be all right"
that soft, sweet kiss in the middle of the night
the way you tease me 'bout that little bit of gray
how when you make up your mind there's nothing left to say
the little things let me know you'll always be my girl
they make all the difference in the world
   
   the little things we sometimes don't recall
   the little things that make a big man fall
   you think they don't mean much
   but let me tell you girl
   the little things make all the difference in the world



And here is the BAND:

floyd,

Congratulations to you and your wife!!!! That's an outstanding milestone.

As I'm typing this, I'm listening to "Little Things". It's definitely a song to be proud of... very easy-on-the-ears and very catchy, too. I don't know that I've heard "Thank you" said so well before.

May everything good come your wife's and your way,
Noel

Floyd,

I got goosebumps.

When a song is this good, there is not much to say. Every line is good. Every note is good. This thing is alive, it has an unstoppable heartbeat, it is country pop genre crossing majestic, unbelievably touching and perfect.

It feels like you took everything good and great about your talent and stuffed it into one moment of pure perfection.

I hope your wife gave you a hug.

I tip my hat, sir.

Amazing.

Now let me see if I can get to work and write one like it.

smile

Classic. I'll share that your song "Little Things" is quite different of my tune from 1971 of the same name.

The devil is always in the details.

Enjoyed my listen.


Charlie

EDIT: My gracious, I overlooked your actual anniversary and reason for song.... Happy Anniversary

Floyd, Man, WHAT A SONG!!! I'm pretty much incommunicado (vacationing in Costa Rica) but I had to put my two cents in here. This is so incredibly GOOD!! Such a wonderful heartfelt lyric, and music that is so sweet and pleasant to carry it along. I agree with David's comments-this song just knocks you out! On my laptop speakers, I can't appreciate the production as much as I will later but I had to drop the quick note of "Congrats" and SO WELL DONE!!!! Take care. Greg

I would also like to congratulations on your milestone. Your lyrics put a smile on my face. I have had a few moments like that as well with my wife. The vocal, harmonies and backtracks sit so tight together. I think when happens one can really experience the imagery in the song. Well done..

Wow! Amazing lyrics and great tune. The story is so heartfelt and the chorus tag line really pulls it all together. This actually brought a tear to my eye. Great Job!

Hi Floyd.

A super song and a wonderful tribute to your wife.

Many congratulations on your 40th from your friends and fans over here in (the original) York.

What can I say about the song, except that it's everything we've come to expect from you in regards to content, performance, production and sheer professionalism.

All the best to you both for the future.

Cheers, ROG.

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser
