Ain’t Giving Up
© 2017 Kenny Leverett
08032017

Sitting in my car
And just watching the rain
Thinking to myself
What a crying shame

Cause I drove by your house tonight
There was no light
If you’re not waiting round for me
That’s alright

Cause I ain’t giving up
On you and me
I’m ready to be living up
Girl to what you need

And it’s true I haven’t caught you yet
But you’re willing to be caught I’d bet
So I ain’t giving up

A change of heart
That I can’t explain
But what we had was too good
To never have again

And I ain’t giving up
On you and me
I’m ready to be living up
Girl to what you need

And it’s true I haven’t caught you yet
But you’re willing to be caught I’d bet
So I ain’t giving up

And I ain’t giving up
On you and me
I’m ready to be living up
Girl to what you need

Wow, what a tune! I love the groove of this one, and how vivid and cinematic the lyrics are. It sounds really sincere, and also the tune is nicely catchy too smile

Great work, and thanks for sharing!


Cheers,

Kenny,

This song is great!!! I really like it. Just in the "great minds think alike category" here is something from last year. Mine is really stupid, however.

Kenny,

Great energy comes through your vocal -you have a "better pay attention to this" way of delivering lines I really like.
The opening lyrics pulled me in and the groove doesn`t let up.
Very good!

Loved this one Kenny. Guitar dancing around the vocal was so cool. Loved the tone in your voice. Well done

Hi Kenny,

yep, that signature "Kenny Sound". And that's a pretty danged good sound at this address. I was wondering which way you might go with this as there are so many directions that title could take, I like what you did with it.

I think Robert said what I was thinking better than I could say it - thanks, Robert! Your vocals are always strong, gritty and spot on. Works for me. Good stuff, my friend. Wishing you the best,

ALan

You had me hooked on this song right after the first note!

Great vocals! The lyrics and mix are spot on.

Two thumbs up.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

Kenny, Robert said it well when he said "great energy" comes from your vocal! This song also has a tremendous amount of energy bursting forth! It seems like kind of a cross between a Stones/John Mellencamp vibe to me! Good work! Thanks, Torrey

This really rocks.
All cool and happening in the right place & right groove.
The bvox are a little off putting but that's probably just me.
Did you record the main vocals hot to get that crunchy effect or did you add an effect?


Cheers

Thanks Alan,

never even gave much thought to the title,

the music gave me that hook line, but I see what you're saying

this could go in a lot of different directions, in this case just a love song,

I always appreciate your support and very kind words.

Kenny,

Wow! You've pulled out all stops with this work.

Your singing is first class and sits excellently on top of a great arrangement, a toe-tapping groove, and a really powerful mix. Whatever you've done in the finishing department is exceptional. Each and every instrument sparkles with clarity. You carried me along on a thoroughly enjoyable journey from start to end.

This is definitely a fine addition to your songbook!

All the best,
Noel

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
