(warning headphone users, you might think my solos are a little hot in the mix
they sounded good in the DAW but once posted they sounded a just a bit hotter)

This is for the ones who think a decent song needs to have a guitar solo
(Dave (Blue Attitude), Peter F. and all youse out there)

Also, it's for J&B. I know that ya'll are busy clearing trees and brush
This is Janice's to record anytime she wants (this is just a rough demo)

As always thanks for listening, comments welcome, hope you like it

Just To Love Somebody

Oh honey
Tell me that you understand
You know it’s true, so true
Nothing ever goes to plan

Tell to leave
Beg me to stay
Call me a fool
I’m yours either way

Well I’m standing
Hanging outside your door
Don’t say that it’s over
Or that you don’t need me no more

Tell to leave
Beg me to stay
Call me a fool
I’m yours either way

Well I know it’s not enough
Just to love somebody
They surely, surely
Have to love you back
It’s never enough
Just to love somebody
Gotta keep that love
Runnin right on track

Don’t let the sun
Let the sun go down
Cause you’re gonna miss me
When I’m not around

Tell to leave
Beg me to stay
Call me a fool
I’m yours either way
Honey

Well I know it’s not enough
Just to love somebody
They surely, surely
Have to love you back
It’s never enough
Just to love somebody
Gotta keep that love
Runnin right on track

Never enough
Just to love somebody

Yeah! You had me hooked right from that opening riff.

Man, you are on a roll lately, just one good song after another!

Love your vocal in this, just the right amount of grit for the material.

Guitar sounded great, I enjoyed hearing you lay down some nice licks!

Good stuff Kenny, enjoyed the listen!

Kenny,

That is one hot vocal! You are giving Lawrence a run-for-his-money these days! Awesome!

Nice guitar work. The level works, I think - lively, has great feeling...

Nice rocker. (again...what a vocal!).

(I'm not a fan of a hard panned piano).

Excellent listen.

What a tune, Kenny! I love the groove of this one, it's easy to move to and the arrangements are flawless too. Plus, I found the lyrics to be very engaging!

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Kenny

That was really good!
Along with the excellent vocal & nice guitar solos it's just a rocking good song.(I think I posted a song once without a guitar solo!).

Kenny,

A very good rocker and not much to change to these ears, though no doubt Janice could add some cool harmonies on the chorus.
Your vocals get more edgy all the time and this one has a real one-take feel that needs no tweaking.
The solo is sweet!

Robert

Really like this song! Like the lyrics, and the energy. Like the raw vocals. Great job.

Thanks Dave,

much appreciated

glad you like my guitar licks, you and Peter are much better players

than me. I used to play thru a Marshall years and many clubs ago, it's

got a lot of bite.

Long live guitar solos!!!

thanks fj,

glad that you like the levels,

I like your ideas on mixing piano, I may redo this one,

but I like the live stage raw sound so it may stay this way.

I always appreciate your support and kind words

Hello, Kenny

Very powerful tune!
As many others said, you are a real Rocker.
Your vocal is always very nice.
The opening riff is very cool.
As Peter said, along with the excellent vocal & nice guitar solos it's just a rocking good song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hello Kenny,

How can a song this hot be so cool???

What a great listen! This is a great song. That intro was splendid ... caught me immediately. Love the bass line - perfect for a great Blues Rock tune. Your gritty voice sparkles, as usual.

No problem with the mix. Sounds fine to me.

Loved it! So cool it has frost hanging off of it!

Alan

Kenny,

Another strong rock and roll write.

Very infectious.

Great vocals.

Good job man. Kind of Van Morrison (early Van.)

Hey Robert,

One take feel is pretty accurate, didn't think I could do much better for me!

thanks for your listen and kind comments

Kenny, this is a winner all the way. Great rocker that had me from the git-go. Super chops man! Your vocal is top shelf for this genre.

This is a keeper for sure!

Somebody mentioned Van Morrison whom we've listened to for years. Yeah, you might be morphing into him smile This song really has a lot of his vocal feel...particularly of his recordings over the last decade.

If there was a genre called "infectious rock" you would own it!

"Also, it's for J&B. I know that ya'll are busy clearing trees and brush
This is Janice's to record anytime she wants (this is just a rough demo)"

Rough demo? Hahaha...this sounds like a polished rocker to me. Maybe add some harmony but, man, your lead is nailed. And you ain't no slacker on the axe.

Fun!!!!

J&B

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
