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.

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!
