I was thinking the same thing. I thought the Holiday Inn part worked OK as it was referenced again later when she said she thought he might have run off with some other girl. Great production as usual and very well sung with some challenging phrasing. I as well as many others always get excited to see a new post from you. A pleasure, Tom


Tom - I most appreciate that you noticed the "challenging phrasing". There were parts of this that were a real mouthful... smile

Thanks, John! Always nice to see you drop by the Showcase... And your tip on the Copy Special for shots and holds was great!!! I've been using the method Noel mentioned - which is a bit more tedious.... so Thanks for that!

This is a cleverly written and hilarious story presented by a cool "Appalachian Swing" band.

Great production and vocal -- never expect any less and never get any less. You've been clearing that very high bar for quite a while mr jane.

Amongst all the goodness here what really struck (and surprised us) was the cool use of those bluegrass solo RT's (guitar and mandolin). The use of them in anything other than a bluegrass production is very rare on this forum. It really worked well.

It had to be a lot fun working it up and it sure is a lot of fun listening to the result.

Y'all done good.

Hello, floyd

It's a bit old style country song, I feel like heard it somewhere in an old American movie.
Your storytelling singing is wonderful.
Though it is not an usual rock tune, I also like this kind of music.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year!

Best regards.

This song really appealed to me, Floyd. I'm OK with letting the lyrics fall where they may... I like the hodgepodge of random information. It paints a picture that fits pretty well into the mundane lives lived by most of us.

I think songs that give the audience free reign to make up their own interpretation automatically have wider appeal, because they aren't boxed in to a single message on which the audience might be divided.

My take: the story makes an interesting commentary on suspicion. The man and the woman in the story both had suspicions (the wife suspected her husband was going to run off with another woman, while the man suspected that society was going to collapse, and he needed to be prepared)

While neither of them was completely right, neither of them was completely wrong. The things we're prepared for aren't generally the things that get us in the end.

Hats off to both of you... I'm very impressed that after so many home runs you continue to find new ways to hit the ball out of the park.

Your new avatar is cool! Anytime I can get a nod from YOU about how I use bluegrass instruments in a production, that is enough to give me a smile... smile

Thanks, Pat. As I stated previously, a good deal of this - the storyline - was Bill's doing, so he deserves that credit. Very pleased to have you drop by. Wish you would visit more often!!!!

Floyd Jane, Love the lyrics and the story it tells. Especially love the surprise ending that was really COOL!!! Reading all the comments and yes, the part about the guy loves his wife but is cheating on her with some other woman may leave some to question how could he love her and want her to be with him through a disaster. But in some cultures, it is acceptable to have those kinds of escapades, it's just not very acceptable in America. I had a friend who married a Korean guy and he thought it was just fine to see another woman for sex only. His American wife certainly did not appreciate it when he naively told her. Needless to say a divorce soon followed.

Just a thought. The lyric never states that his "sin" is of a sexual nature. There is A LOT more options for "sinning" at a hotel than that .

He could be meeting a drug dealer, or perhaps he IS the dealer. It could be gambling. It could be some kind of arms dealings. Any of the above could have him believing HIS world was close to ending and he should prepare. Buford was paranoid for reasons, real or imagined. I do believe the intended implication was probably sex though wink

The name "Buford" took me more out of the moment than anything else did. lol

Now the song...meh. I guess if you like well written and produced songs, then this would work for you. But you have to understand, great songs aren't for everyone.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
