Such a great write. Timeless. The story you tell, it's always been that way. The heartbreak, the runner trying to escape it, and the sad truth is your hero could have stopped at any bar along that 28 hour stretch of 1800 miles and been just as lost and lonely. Your story is a universal theme that will drive a person to drink and be an anonymous fixture in a crowded room. It's strange how two people can set beside each other and both be alone.

A top notch write, arrangement, mix, production and performance by all. The quintessential Floyd Jane song.


I could say "You Make It Look Easy" ....

Floyd, working on that. I've always been involved in assisting others recordings/mixes mostly since I've never really written for myself. Trying to change that this year and hope to have something out in the next months. I've just had a hard time with writing..... hence: Writing Melodies - For the Creativity Challenged in the Songwriting Forum.

Great stereo separation! Those drums really kick! (lol) I would like to know more about them.

This is a great write! I just love the lyrics, especially the chorus - super write.

Someone once said, "it's not the story told, but the telling of the story". And you have given new life to well covered lyrical territory.

And Janice and Bud have added wonderfully to the joy of the groove!

Man, I always love your pacing. I always look at your lyrics as I hear the song for the first time. I'm am amazed at how many times the rhythms you pick are not in line with what I think they will be. For me, that's a REAL treat!

I have to say, I am a HUGE fan of how the song builds. It's powerful! The verse is great, the pre-chorus (if you call it that) is a nice step to the chorus...which then blows the roof off. It just soars in the best way.

Btw, this may be my favorite vocal from you. You sound great! I mean, I always think you are a really good singer, but "miles"...seriously nice tone my friend!

Now for another listen...

Thanks for sharing this!

Another exceptional delivery.

You really kicked-butt with this one. The build, the vocals (especially the vocals), the balance, that driving beat, absolutely everything about this is sensational.

You and the Merrit's nailed another one. No question.

My role is this big production plays only a small part but it was lots of fun contributing. I consider myself and Bud very lucky to have the opportunity to join in on this and other floyd jane songs. The fun singing harmony is felt all over again reading all of the wonderful comments about the song. I really don’t take being invited in for granted!

You know you're on a forum of really good songwriters when the best lines are acknowledged in the first page of comments! I loved the lines referenced above, and all the other ones as well!!! Super write....such a creative idea for a song...fresh but so easy to relate to! The chorus melody really soars nicely, and the mix and vocal are excellent, as usual. Another real gem Floyd!! Take care. Greg

Really nice balance of vocals with harmonies (and Janice matches the kind of anthemic feeling you bring to the chorus).
I like the held last chord going on so far like that!

Robert


Thanks for the kind comments, Robert..

The perfect lead and BG vocals propel this powerhouse road trip tune. By the way is there another route that bypasses 95? Or can we find a way to erase that road from our GPS? Might as well throw in I-4 for good measure. Good work on a fine song, Tom


Thanks, Tom. Appreciate all the points you hit on. Always glad to see that you are good with how the steel sits... I look forward to my next Keys visit - hopefully they can rebuild and move on...

Eddie hit the nail on the head about lyrics - particularly country lyrics. The hardest challenge for a lyricist is to say what already been said tens of thousands of time but say in a new and engaging way. You seem to always have the knack for doing that - and doing it well.

The chorus is particularly ear-catching for me. And there are so many good lines throughout the song. After two listens, I'm still tapping me feet and humming the melody.

You don't set the bar higher for us, Floyd -- rather, you *ARE* the bar.

Alan


Alan - I certainly appreciate such nice comments. It is always nice to have lyrics appreciated. I considered taking the nickname "The Bar" - but then everyone would expect me to buy the drinks... smile

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

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.

Review all the new features of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 here.
