Just love a turn of phrase.
Hence the song below. All comments welcome. Rob

Wall Flower


(Wall \Flower: a shy or excluded person at a dance or party, especially a girl without a partner.)

Wallflower not noticed at all
Wallflower no belle of the ball
Wallflower can you hear them call
Poor little wall flower have no fun at all.

Chorus
I see you sitting on that stool.
Hey I'm no bodies fool.
I will sweep you off those, sweet little feet
Your no wallflower to me.

Bridge

Chorus
I see you sitting on that stool.
Hey I'm no bodies fool.
I will sweep you off those sweet little feet
Your no wallflower to me.

Wallflower not noticed at all
Wallflower no belle of the ball
Wallflower can you hear them call
Poor little wall flower have no fun at all.

Chorus
I see you sitting on that stool.
Hey I'm no bodies fool.
I will sweep you off those sweet little feet
Your no wallflower to me.
Your no wallflower to me.
Your no wallflower to me.

Love the arrangement, excellent vocal. I love the pedal guitar flourishes! And clocking in at under 2:30, wow!

Nits - where the strings drop out at 1:31, it sounds like you change the reverb or something. It seems the reverb tail drops off around 1:42, which makes the vocal sort of stick out.

I really enjoy hearing your tunes - they're retro and a lot of fun to listen to. Thanks for posting! laugh

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

Super song with a very strong vocal and excellent lyrics. I liked the backing tracks also.

I agree with Mario. Super strong vocal on this tune. Very cool back track. Steele was awesome...

What a tune! This has such a genuine, authentic feeling to it. It reminds me of something from the late 50's/early 60's. The vocals remind me a bit of Elvis at time. The way you incorporated the falsetto worked flawlessly here.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

dcuny's reference points are spot on Rob.
I also noticed that the essing is less an issue when the reverb drops away. You should look into the fine settings of the reverb and try to low or high pass it around the essing frequency.
Good tune and performance - just a few tweaks needed.

Your vocals always have such a rich, warm tone to them ... perfect for this material.
Lots of subtle things happening here that kick things up a notch. Those background vocals during the verses for example.
"Band" sound good, Steel especially sounds great!
Good song!

Hey Rob ...

Really cool song and your vocal really shines on this one. Has your signature retro sound and it's done so well. Really, really nice - enjoyed it a bunch.

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."
