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!

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!

Robert

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.

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?

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

Watch Tobin (and Charlie!) demonstrate Band-in-a-Box® 2015 for Windows at the 2015 NAMM Show: Play video...

Tobin does a great job of showing just how easy it is to create a song with Band-in-a-Box!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Attention Band-in-a-Box® 2021 for Windows users - update for FREE today!

We've added a new "record using" option within the Audio Settings dialog, and updated many existing features based on user feedback.

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
