First song of 2018. Happy Year Year y'all.

Come Set Me Free
By David Snyder

V1

What if the universe was only just a day
Would we still choose to spend our time this way
I know that this is not what we were meant to be
We cannot let this world control our destiny

CH

Oh Innocence come set me free, come set me free
And show me what true love can really mean

V2

If we were strong we would stand up against these walls
I know our dreams can’t really be this small
I know that this is not what we were meant to be
We were supposed to love even our enemies

CH

Oh Innocence come set me free, come set me free
And show me what true love can really mean

Bridge

Midnight worries won’t you flee
To morning bright and fair
I miss the beauty of the truth
And the sunlight in her hair

CH

Oh Innocence come set me free, come set me free
And show me what true love can really mean
Like ocean winds wake up the trees, wake up the trees
Like morning comes up a fragile breeze

Oh innocence come set me free
Oh innocence come set me free
Oh innocence come set me free

The sound of the 80's in the 2018's.

This is really good. Love the vibe in this one. Super vocals and backing tracks with outstanding lyrics.

Great job on this one.

David,

A different and cool sound to begin the year. I really enjoyed the synth swirling behind your vocals and the positive message... oh, and the nod to one of my favourite singers!

Great lyrics, and a little Steve Winwood influence goes a long way. (I saw him in concert a few years ago, awesome!)

Strong song to start off the year, David!

“If we were strong we would stand up against these walls
I know our dreams can’t really be this small
I know that this is not what we were meant to be
We were supposed to love even our enemies”

Stronger than a garlic milkshake!

Lots to ponder Mr Snyder and wrapped in a cool production.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
