Some of you may still remember a Dutch song contest we participated in, one or two years back.
Those may also remember that we did not win frown well.....

Anyway, that was not the original version. Anne-Marie adjusted the lyrics for the contest's theme.

This however, is the original version, with the original video. Shot at Anne-Marie's place.
(Which is now my place too ;-))

Hope you'll like it, as always any comments are welcome.

This song is featured on our album The Road

Lyrics

thoughts keep entering my mind
as I watch the hours go
and I feel the days flow
doubt has taken over me
and I can't begin to tell you how I feel

after all these years
of firmly believing in it all
my look has changed
new love's embraced

when you left your home back then
being only 17 it was the greatest thing you'd ever need
flying on the wings of love
and now you can recall the way you used to be

and every time I'm here
an uncertain future getting near
though your love's still strong
you won't be here for long

Oh my where will we go

CHORUS

Oh my where will we go from here

Wow, what a stunning piece. It has a haunting, ethereal quality to it. I loved the slow build in the later half of the song too!

Not a thing I'd change here - thank for sharing smile

This is perfect! I really loved the instrumentation you used. Plus the video was icing on a cake that was already iced! Loved it!

This is a keeper.

Rob, there must have been some VERY GOOD material in that contest for this song to not win!! This song is beautiful and your vocal is perfect (never off-pitch always spot on). You two (in my opinion) put up the best all around audio/video production we have on the forum. Great work! Thanks, Torrey

I am continually amazed at your work. I am humbled at times to realize how limited my musical education has been. You are going places I cannot yet imagine. I learned what little I do know playing in some unmentionable clubs and blind pigs throughout the south. At 71 I have a long way to go and a short time to get there. Wonderful job!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

A wonderful, bittersweet and evocative piece. The lyric is so good and,Rob, your voice is always so pure. I was so taken in with the video I had to watch it twice - will go back for more listens, I am sure. Thi8s was a real treat. The two of you are accomplished entertainers. I think I speak for most folks on the forum when I say we appreciate the great music you share with us. It was mesmerizing!

Alan

Hi, Rob and Anne-Marie !


It´s been said but I have
to say it too - this is
a very beautiful song and
so delicately performed too.
It has all the elements of
a hit tune - could go into
a movie or a musical too !!!

Cheers
Dani

Rob & Anne-Marie,

Delicate, romantic and beautiful- for me one of your best ballads.
Your vocal is flawless, Rob.
This does have the feel of a movie song ... and the video is stylish and evocative.
Well done!

Robert

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!

Dennis Esson:
RealTracks Set 144: Dixieland – Fast Soloists
RealTracks Set 178: Dixieland - Medium Soloists

Welcome to the Team David!

We are thrilled to say that we've added David to our Customer Service Team here at PG Music!

You may have already noticed him - he's already made his appearance here on the Forums, chiming in with assistance and User Showcase Song Feedback.

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!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

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."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)
