Hello all

Here is a fun song that was co-written with Liz Petty as part of 50 90.

Lucky Lucky Me on Youtube

I think this one is going to be great to perform live so I cant wait to practice it enough so it is ready. I think the kids'll love it....

Lyrics:

I had me a hamster
Penelope
she was brown and white
chatted all day to me
I assumed she was lonely
so I got her some friends
two pigmy goats
called Mary and Ted

Had two crazy goats
blatted all the night long
It soon grew quite tiresome
with their lonely song

so I got a dwarf donkey
black cross on his back
He started to bray
And So I got Jack

Now I have a
menagerie
all because of
Penelope
Now I have a
menagerie
lucky lucky me

Jack was a gray emu
he'd run really fast
one day he ran far
when we found him at last
in Farmers John's pasture
he'd befriended a cow
we brought them both home
and made room somehow

The cow liked to watch birds
so I got him a hen
The hen got a porcupine
to keep fox out of her pen
then a large gray armadillo
who wasn't afraid of quills
then a lama, six young ducks
one day I looked around ...
and thought oh no.... what the.....
luck....

Now I have a
menagerie
all because of
Penelope
Now I have a
menagerie
lucky lucky me

Good work on this, Joanne smile I agree, I think the kids will fall in love with this tune! It's wonderfully catchy, and easy to follow and sing along to. Amazing on the arrangement too - and your vocals are on point!

Thanks so much for sharing!

A perfect song for the little ones! And I'll bet a few big folks will like it too ... folks like me! Light humor that's not too deep for the kids ... should maker the smile! Nice work by you and your cowriter.

My dear Ms. Cooper...

Well, here's one big ol' "kid" that loves your lovely song, "Lucky, Lucky Me"! smile

I'd love to teach this cheery, charming and humorous musical tale to a classroom full of children. In fact, listening to it made me wish I was back in kindergarten and thrusting eager my hand in the air to be picked by the teacher who's asking her students, "Which one of you would like to make a goat sound? Anyone know what an emu sounds like? Who can bray like a donkey?"

Recently I learned what one of the many definitions of the word "innocence" is: having no knowledge of evil. Isn't that just the most beautiful and desirable thing to contemplate?

"Lucky, Lucky Me" is that kind of song. If I had a daughter, or a son, or both, when I picked them up from school, I'd love to have them run into my arms and hear them exclaim to me in voices breathless with excitement, "Daddy! Daddy! Wanna hear the song our teacher taught us today?!"

LOREN

P.S. Your singing voice reminds me of Julie Andrews.

Nicely done, Joanne. Well sung, good mix.

Could see this being a part of a whole children's CD. Or even turned into a book - with accompanying music...

Thank you Josie. Nice to hear from you. I think some adults will love this one ...especially the line "what the luck...". I am hoping to get it practiced enough to start performing it live at our local folk club.

Joanne, as an animal lover I really enjoyed your video! This song was done very well! The vocal, backtrack and video work were all exceptional! Nice use of incorporating the animal sounds in the production! Thanks, Torrey

What the luck? WTL? That was a great line!

It's all been said! What you have is a great kids song, super vocal, great backing tracks with super lyrics and a zoo.

I can see this one on Sesame Street! (I hope you get that TV show over there)

Great fun song!

Excellent one. Everything goes well. All in one: your vocal and music in the background
Super video.

Surely I'll show it to my grandson Leonardo (2 years old) as soon as he will come to my home.

Welcome to the team David!

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!

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."

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
