Hi all. Been stuck on writing waltz's lately.
This one is about the loneliness of old age and the only comfort is late night TV.
Hope you like it. All comments welcome. Rob

Send a Donation


Its four in the morning Im watching tv.
Reruns of Elvis and things I dont need.
I never did wondered how lonesome I'd be.
Im wishing you where here with me.

Im eating leftovers the lights are down dim.
The sofas kinda comfy the cat wonders in.
I beg the almighty your safe where you been.
Im wishing you where here with me.

Send a donation and we'll save your sole.
Insurance a thing, you need dont you know.
No lock in contract you'l be free to go.
Never so easy to be.
Im wishing you where here with me.

Bridge

Send a donation and we'll save your sole.
Insurance a thing, you need dont you know.
No lock in contract you'l be free to go.
Never so easy to be.
Im wishing you where here with me.


Im schedualed for surgery I need a by pass.
My heart near most faling, I hope I will last.
But if I dont see you, I'll raise you a glass
Im wishing you where here with me.

Its four in the morning Im watching tv.
Reruns of Elvis and things I dont need.
I never did wondered how lonesome I'd be.
Im wishing you where here with me.

Oh my,Rob I hope it never gets to that for me or my wife!!
Great waltz and thoughtful lyrics.Excellent.
Happy Christmas
Ian
PS - we did a silly check on our commercial TV adverts the other night. Being Christmas time the channels are awash with Charity adverts asking for "Donations". In one hour of Prime Time the 9 different Charities we saw added up to a staggering £37 and some of those wanted you to sign up to a monthly donation. Pity the poor old folk who get emotional about it all and give away their meagre pensions.

I truly loved this. A thin line between humor and melancholy. A hard thing to achieve. Really enjoyable. Loved the video too. Wonderful job Rob!

Rob, A good write. Well sung and produced. Good mix. Getting old sucks and you did a good job of relaying that sentiment. Very nicely done in all regards, Tom

Very well done! You nailed late night tv for sure (not that I have ever stayed up to see it). grin

The arrangement is very well worked out. (Isn't BiaB great for helping in that matter?) The vocal is well done and the piece is fun to listen to.

Thank you for sharing.

BRILLIANT song Rob. Remember watching late night TV when we first got satellite signals here in the UK, and you've certainly got the song spot on. Definately a song that needs to be recorded by some of the major artists

Rob,
A great subject for a song- really good lyrics, very well sung and arranged.
Apart from that shot of the leftovers, I enjoyed the video too!

The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

Simon did it again - another test in Windows 11! See how well the Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin works with Windows® 11 in his latest video: The Band-in-a-Box® VST DAW Plugin Works Great in Windows® 11!

RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

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."
