After Far too many sherbets (drinks).I thought it would be an experiment to try to write a song.
This is what came out.It was only mixed in Biab then transferred to Cubase ,where the vocals were added.
Please Please don't ask my what its about because I haven't a clue.
I sat and scribbled these words down ,didn't change anything and the recorded them.

MIDNIGHT BLUE

MIDNIGHT BLUE
EYES THAT COULD SAVE A SOUL FROM DYING
TELL ME HOW
YOUR LOVE CAN EASE THIS PAIN
YOU BRING ME WHAT
MY HEART HAS ALWAYS WANTED
MIDNIGHT BLUE
MIDNIGHT BLUE ITS YOU

WHEN ALL IS LOST
YOU FIND A WAY
WHEN HOPE IS GONE YOU BRING THE DAY
IS THERE ANYTHING ANYWAY YOU CANT DO
MY MIDNIGHT BLUE


MIDNIGHT BLUE
WHERE HAVE ALL THE ANGELS GONE
IS THERE MORE
WAITING WITH A SAVIOURS SONG
CAN I BELEIVE
TOGETHER WE ARE A MOMENT STRONG
MIDNIGHT BLUE MIDNIGHT BLUE ITS YOU


WHEN ALL IS LOST
YOU FIND A WAY
WHEN HOPE IS GONE YOU BRING THE DAY
IS THERE ANYTHING ANYWAY YOU CANT DO
MY MIDNIGHT BLUE

BRIDGE

WHEN ALL IS LOST
YOU FIND A WAY
WHEN HOPE IS GONE YOU BRING THE DAY
IS THERE ANYTHING ANYWAY YOU CANT DO
MY MIDNIGHT BLUE

Thanks for sharing, Biglad smile I really like the groove of this one. It is an excellent level of catchyness. The arrangement on this is seriously on point as well.

Great work on this!


Cheers,
Deryk

Never had a "sherbet", unless that's a generic name for a drink, in which case I've had a WHOLE LOT of them! This is really pretty!! I think it is my favorite of yours. Don't tell you doctor I said so, but keep drinking! Take care. Greg

Very nice and different.

We like the way the weariness of the lyric is balanced by the mandolin. The RT choice works very well.

Well done!

Brad, I enjoyed the vocal and melody. Good song. I believe the production would be improved with some mastering. Tom

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

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.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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.
