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.

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.


Cheers

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!

User Tip: How to add drum fills without changing any other tracks

MarioD has shared some great advice when it comes to adding drum fills without changing any other tracks in your song:

There have been a number of questions asking how to add drum fills without changing any other tracks in a song. This is especially important if one is holding a chord for a few measures and wants to add a drum fill prior to the next chord. The following is how to accomplish that:

1-get the instruments/tracks to play like you want but don't worry about the drums for now.
2-generate the song.
3-freeze all tracks
4-unfreeze the drum track
5-add your fills where you want them
6-generated the song again - note this will only generate the drum track and not the frozen tracks
7- when you get the drums like you want them freeze the track

Review - Band-in-a-Box® 2023 for Windows is Overflowing with Features!

Dennis posted his very thorough Band-in-a-Box® review recently, where he dives into some of the new features added with version 2023: Sound-Guy's Band-in-a-Box Review

Read his thoughts on the Download & Install Manager, partial track regeneration, Playable RealTracks, Audio Editing, the addition of SynthMaster, the VST DAW Plugin, and more!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is, without negative connotation, a monster of a program. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. No DAW can do some of the things BIAB does, while BIAB can do a lot that DAWs do."
