Hi all. Fell in love with this style and had to write something for it.
Fun song with no real back story. Hope you enjoy it.
All comments welcome. Rob
Cool and Calm and Callus

If you left me all on my own.
I'd follow you tomorrow.

you dont care you cause me pain.
A life times full of sorrows.
......................................................................
I watch you laugh as you walk out the door.
Cool and calm and callus.

Your steely smile still burns in my heart.
All torn apart by you malice
.....................................................................
Bridge

......................................................................
I watch you laugh as you walk out the door.
Cool and calm and callus.

Your steely smile still burns in my heart.
All torn apart by you malice
.....................................................................

Bridge

Come that morn when you'll gone
I will you back I beckon.

Pretend I never knew your name
Can not bare the though for a second.

Hi Rob,

Yes, this is fantastic track. Your voice works perfectly for this one ... and many others. When I lived in San Antonio, TX, many years ago, Jalisco music from strolling Mariachi bands on the River Walk .The San Antonio River runs through the heart of the city and the banks on either side are highly commercially developed. This brought back a few good memories. Really enjoyable! Wishing you well,

Alan

That is really nice Rob. Not many folks would tackle a song of this genre. You did...and you did it convincingly well.

Cool video imagery also.

Glad you discovered that style!

Cool tune. Love The sound and good use of video with it as well. I think the instrumental alone would be great for licensing in TV or the movies. Great job.

What a tune! It reminds me of something you'd hear in an old western film, for some reason. I really liked how moody it was, both in the arrangement and in your vocal delivery. Those horns were the final icing on the cake for me.

You should be proud of this one, Rob smile Thanks so much for sharing!

Love the melody, the trumpet, the minimal lyrics, the style and the vocals.

"Rob4580"...

You, sir, are a balladeer! Every time I listen to your songs I think, "This man could compose and perform songs even if he was hard-of-hearing".

That's because your songs seemingly always tell a story, their use of Band-in-a-Box styles is varietal, and considering your current offering, "Cool, Calm, and Callous", downright adventurous.

And then, there's your singing, which is full-bodied and (dare I say it?) heroic-sounding, even. Keep all this up, and soon somebody's gonna steal you away from the User's Forum!

Thoroughly entertained,

LOREN

Pefectly pitched vocal for the drama of this style ...yeah, Rob the gunslinger!

Very well done.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box®!

Here's some of the amazing feedback we've received lately, from program users just like you!

Arthritic fingers means I find it very difficult to play anything. This program is amazing - and it does use real musicians!
-Bob E.

The power of this program is just unbelievable! It's been a best kept secret for a couple of decades now. A song writer's dream!
-Mike D

This band can practice any time of day ...LOL
-William G

Band-in-a-Box works so simple you could teach a child to do it within minutes - the RealTracks are amazing. Doing an album as we speak. I challenge you to give it a try. I am 60 years old and even though I've played 50 years, I am no engineer. But as a song writer I needed some effective tools to create quality production of my work. This is IT! It's as easy as typing and filling in the blanks. The instructional videos allow you to change settings while watching the pro. I myself purchased every "RealTrack" I could get... Take it from me, don't let this overwhelm you. It is absolutely a writer and solo artist dream!
-John S

Best part of Band-in-a-Box is that it saves me having to program drums, the Real Drummer part of the software is brilliant and natural sounding. I then layer real instruments with guys from my band. As a songwriter, Band-in-a-Box has saved me so much time it's ridiculous.
-Andy B

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "Band-in-a-Box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy. ;)
-Ilija B.

Been a BIAB man since '92, such a comprehensive source for music making! So much more to offer than "loops", it allows actual music composition to be realized. Evolve from harmonic ignorance and find out what REAL music is made of!
-Don D.

A must for any musician who wants to improve on his own, or to share his musical ideas in a professional high quality rendition.. You just play with the best musicians and that's great ♪ :)
-Jean-Marie D.

I use Band in a Box all the time. I couldn't be more pleased. It's easy to use and it sounds super-big time!
-Max R.

An excellent tool for generating backing tracks. Saves me hours of MIDI programming. Combines the best of MIDI and live audio samples.
-Steve A.
