Y'all know I HAD to write this one.

It's a tongue-in-cheek look at the recent discussion on bumping posts.....

Quick write and even faster recording session.

POST BUMPING BLUES

References to persons real or fictional are intentional. Names were omitted to protect the guilty.

Put on some cans, and crank this baby up!!

Now.... to bump or not to bump...... hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Ahhh the lyrics.... almost forgot.

Post bumping blues

Just wrote a new song that everyone needs to hear
I'm begging everybody come lend me your ear.
Listen once or twenty times I really just don't care
Just leave a comment, and please feel free to share
Everybody needs to post to keep me up on top,
Last damn thing I need today is one more flop.
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues

It's been an hour now and only three new views,
What are you waiting for, the nightly TV news?
I got no time today to play this childish game
Tomorrow's likely gonna be the same
Two more posts today and I can get it done
Come on people, I need to have my fun
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues

Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues
Let me throw this out, there really ain't no doubt,
I wanna scream... Might even pull my own hair out.
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues

My palms are getting sweaty and my eyes are growing dim,
It's hard to recall just where the hell I've been
Have I replied to one or maybe two?
It could be her, or it could be you
My song keeps sliding to the bottom of the page,
Got to give it one more shot and bump it up today
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues

Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues
Don't wanna mention no names that might ruin the game
It's got a different title man but it sounds the same
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues
Just one more time now...
Ohhhhhh oh I got the Post Bumping blues

ok I'm done I'm out..
oh wait, somebody else just posted....ha!
bump that sucker one more time
hahahaha

You kids and your vernacular. When I was a kid "bumping" meant something different.

So, what is this post you are referring to? Haven't seen it. shocked

Seriously though, creative, well performed, and fast turn around. Maybe you are talking about the same kind of "bump" I'm thinking of? wink

THAT'S funny!

This is, in fact, some of your best work. A "freer" write - a good Rock Blues lyric. A "freer" vocal. You've got the drums sounding good. And those vocals sit where they should. A good mix. (nice brick, btw - good and loud as it should be)

A good listen (other than the fact you are mocking many of the people who keep this forum going).

Hi Herb,

"your best to date, another masterpiece, my favourite of yours to date, this is a keeper, this is fantastic,
you have surpassed yourself this time."

Enjoyed your blues voice.
Bump Bump.

Cheers.

Hrm.... This is actually quite good. Could be you need to spend less time on songs. smile

Can't wait until someone finds this in 2025 and it hits the top of the page again. (Which entirely by coincidence is the number of posts I've done to date).

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

So.... group reply.... I ain't got time to bump every reply.... although I really am tempted just because of the title of the song.... I mean come on...right?

"Loved it....Well done...Best yet..... surpassed yourself....excellent....Quite good....Great job...." To everyone who listened and cracked a smile...... cause you know it's true.....THANK YOU ALL!!!

I have to reply to this:

Quote:
A good listen (other than the fact you are mocking many of the people who keep this forum going).


Bwahahahahaha... now THAT's funny. First, I'm glad you thought it was a good listen. Nope, you got the second part wrong.... I have to disagree about the mocking part. If anyone was being mocked in this song, it was ME. Heck, I picked up the techniques on post bumping from..... well, I'll just leave that one blank.... perhaps you can figure it out. But first and foremost I was drawing from personal experience. I stand guilty as charged to bumping posts.... well, maybe not "bumping" because I have a personal rule that I only reply to a post if someone else has commented. No gratuitous bumping, as a rule. But yup... I have done individual replies to many...and I think many here do as well. Anyway.... this has been hashed to death in the other thread.... this is about the song and the song is about me.....with a bit of artistic license thrown in for good measure to make it interesting. However,as they say... if you think the shoe fits..... feel totally free to wear it.

Again... it's all in good faith and mutual respect for the people in this forum. I would not want to think that I was offending anyone with this song or this thread..... hopefully, everyone understands that and we can simply enjoy a cool song written solely for fun and entertainment.

OK.... I'm done for tonight.... maybe.

In my best Three Stooges voice "Hey, I resemble that remark"!

This is hilarious! This is super blues (you should do more blues by the way), vocal and lyrics. I'll bet you had a lot of fun doing this didn't you.

PS - I just bumped your song now you have to bump mine grin grin grin grin

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
