Oh Baby. Talking bout my sweet baby.
Im feeling kinda hazy bout my sweet baby doll.

Where walking stroll along and where talking.
I'll always want you near me as sweet baby doll.

Chorus
We'll walk the avenue, take in view.
I'm so plum crazy about. You you and only you

Bridge
Blooming all flowers are blooming now you got me
swooning for my sweet baby doll.

I'm holding your tiny hand my worlds revolving
I'm so beholding to my sweet baby doll

Chorus
We'll walk the avenue, take in view.
I'm so plum crazy about. You you and only you

Rob,

This is excellent - almost a late 40s early 50s sound. Love the overall production - bass line and horns are great!

Rob, I agree with Bob about the late 40’s to early 50’s sound. Mainly because of the dominance of the horns/ big band sound. A really well done clean sounding track with a great vocal like you always produce! Thanks, Torrey

Rob, this has that swing big band thing in spades. Great vocal. I sure did enjoy it. This type of music was played by my Mother on an old piano in our house growing up. Memories.... Tom

Rob,

MY KINDA MUSIC!!!!

This is excellent. I love the arrangement. I also found myself smiling heaps at how you used language from the period to help boost the authenticity of the composition! That's paying attention to detail smile

It's energetic thumbs up from me.

All the best,
Noel

Your vocal and lyric are perfect for the laid-back big band style.

I enjoyed listening to it.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Really nice job on this one smile It is very reminiscent of 40's/50's big band. I love the happy vibe of this one - it's easy to move along and tap your foot to. I'd imagine this sound incredible performed live.

Awesome work, and thanks for sharing smile

I really like the mood of the song, creating image of Elvis singing in a Hawaii T-shirt on a soundtrack of a Christmas movie from 50's. Great use of the horns and oohs smile

Rob,
You nailed the period sound on this- the bass and horns are great and I liked those RT oohs (first time I`ve heard them used here).
You always deliver on the vocals and this is no exception- very cool tune!

Hello, Rob

Super Vocal as always!
Nice old standard tune!
The big band track is also very effective with using only necessary parts.
As D. Cuny said, your vocal and lyric are perfect for the laid-back big band style.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Updated Song Titles Browser in Band-in-a-Box® 2020!

If you're looking for a Band-in-a-Box® Style in the feel of a familiar/popular song title, then the Song Titles Browser option in the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker is the perfect feature for you!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020, we’ve added 3,400 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now 14,000 titles to search from!

Just type in a familiar song title or artist name - once you have found the song, press the [OK - Find Matching Styles] button. This will take you to the StylePicker window with styles that best match the tempo, feel, and genre of the selected song title.

Didn't find the song you were searching for? Post your title request to our Wishlist forum: Songs to add to Band-in-a-Box Titles database - we think that the 3,400 new titles added with Version 2020 is proof that we're paying attention!

Learn more about the different features of the Band-in-a-Box® StylePicker here.

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)
