In 2012, floyd and I wrote a song called "What A Crazy Thing". I put the mix together and we posted it on the forum.

In the 5 years since then, I've gained quite a bit more experience in mixing. I've also moved from the UltraPlus Pak version of BIAB with compressed audio files to the Audiophile edition with wav files. Because of these things, I thought it would be a fun exercise to re-visit the song and create a mix worthy of 2017.

Here it is...




...floyd and I hope you enjoy listening!

All vocals, lead and background, are floyd's.

Feel free to comment in any way on any aspect. As floyd says, "Have at it..."

Regards,
Noel

P.S. It sounds best when the speaker volume is turned up a bit.

Lyrics
You and me caught in the rain
Soaked to the bone, big old grins
My heart is pounding with a capital P
Old Gene Kelly's got nothing on me
It doesn't get better than this
What a crazy thing love is

You got me howling like a dog at the moon
Laughing out loud, crazy as a loon
Head over heels, a little do-si-do
All because of you, I want the world to know
It doesn't get better than this
What a crazy thing love is

Oh what a feeling
Now who would believe
Dizzy and giddy from a guy like me
It hits you hard, takes you by surprise and it's good
Real good
So unbelievably good

Adam and Eve or Bogie and Bacall
It's all about love after all
Add to that list, you and me
Let's do this thing permanently
It doesn't get better than this
What a crazy thing love is

[Instrumental]

Oh what a feeling
Now who would believe
Dizzy and giddy from a guy like me
It hits you hard, takes you by surprise and it's good
Real good
So unbelievably good

Adam and Eve or Bogie and Bacall
It's all about love after all
Add to that list, you and me
Let's do this thing permanently
It doesn't get better than this
What a crazy thing love is

Doesn't get any better than this
What a crazy thing love is

Hey Kenny!

That was quick! Thanks for taking the time to have a listen. Always appreciate the visit.

This was a fun song to work on back in 2012. I enjoyed collaborating with floyd immensely. He's a class act. I also picked up lots of tips along the way.

Thanks again for passing through.
Noel

This is "Good (Real Good)" What a crazy thing a great collaboration can be.... "It doesn't get any better than this..." All are spot on to my reaction to this remix....

I wasn't here in 2012 to catch this first time around either but glad I'm here now. Enjoyed my listen.

Wow guys, you nailed this! It's wonderfully catchy, and honestly just a fantastically written song. I can't think of anything I'd change. It catches your attention within the first moment, and keeps you hooked the whole way through.

You should be very proud of this - thanks so much for sharing smile

Noel & Floyd,
I also haven`t heard the original, but can`t come up with any improvements to be made on this mix- it is so crisp and clear.
Are you using the new Ozone Neutron everyone seems to like?
That said, its all about the song and the fun you guys had writing this comes through - in the clever lyrics that sound familiar and fresh at the same time,the boogie beat and of course trademark Floyd vocal and harmonies.
A sweet collaboration in all respects.

Robert

Noel,

You did a super job on the remix!

Those guitars sound great.

I've really enjoyed revisiting this one. I think it was the first co-write I did on the forum... Thanks for bringing it back!

Hi Charlie,

It's always a pleasure to see you! It took me by surprise to read that you weren't around in 2012. It seemed to me that you've been here for many years more than that. I guess that that means that you've settled into the place really well!

Thanks for taking time to have a listen. And I appreciate the quotes. They gave me a good chuckle!

All the best to you and yours,
Noel

Wow, this is terrific guys! I joined the forum in 21 December 2012, so I missed the original by, I guess, a few months. Regardless, this just rocked my country roots and dang near had my headphones dancing off my ears.

Too much fun (but that's okay!) and a lot spark. I enjoyed this from first note to last. Great collab!

That was about the time we joined the forum if memory serves so the song is new to us.

We went in with high expectations...what not to expect other than excellence with Noel + floyd? And we assuredly were not disappointed.

The groove just flows like like water down a mellow stream. Smooth and fluid.

We will have to find and listen to the original which no doubt will be very good. All of us hope to achieve "sonic growth" over the years but when you start out with your talent it's a lot easier to achieve!

Everything sounds superb to us...the RT choice, the arrangement, the write and vocals.

And that Gene Kelly line in the first verse was super cool.

WTG guys!!

Great song guys! This is fantastic!

I don't remember the original but I sure enjoyed this version. Great vocals, lyrics, backing tracks, instrumentation and mix. Who could ask for more?

Two thumbs up on this fantastic collaboration.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for visiting and thanks for your comments. I don't have neutron. This was mixed using Ozone 6. I also used a dash of Nectar on floyds vocals.

I was tempted to get Neutron when it was on special but I didn't. I'll see what happens next time the specials roll around.

All the best,
Noel

Hello, Noel and floyd

Great Collaboration!
Shuffle beat is very pleasant!
Vocal and Lead guitar are also very nice.
As Robert said, I also haven't heard the original, but can't come up with any improvements to be made on this mix- it is so crisp and clear.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

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."
