I haven't been too active of late, couldn't be helped. I do listen to everything posted, I just can't comment much.

Here is a song about Space, and our reluctance to reach for it.

Dream
©2012 Robert Randall Burke


What a dream we had
But we let it slip away
We could touch the stars
From a million miles away

But little men with little minds
Came in
And stole the dream away.

Fools rush in
And steal our futures
Where they've been, nobody knows.

What a dream we had
We were going to the stars
What a dream we had
We were on our way to Mars.

But little men with little minds
Came in
And stole the dream away.

Fools rush in
And steal our futures
Where they've been, nobody knows.

This is GORGEOUS!, Bob...

Your are SUCH a fine songwriter - you say more with a few words than any I've ever known. A real talent. Blows me away every time.

The production on this is every bit a match for the superb writing.
The vocal on this is every bit a match for the superb writing. (Love the processing).

LOVE that stop!

Top shelf stuff, through and through.

Looking forward to the next one!

Great song.

I hear lots of really good songs on this forum, and every so often I hear something great. This is one of those times!

As far as the subject matter goes, the future seemed so positive after that first moon landing, but then everything basically stopped! I often wonder what the world would be like today if they had kept on going with that line of research instead of finding new and better ways to blow the crap out of each other.

This is really special, Bob! Excellent production, just the right treatment on that vocal. Stop was brilliant! I also like your lead playing, very melodic with great tone.

No worries on commenting on my tune, I am aware of your condition that makes it difficult to type.
Just keep on posting more of these songs please smile

Bob,

Very good!I really enjoyed the chord progression on this - yes, Floyd -like as has been noted. You also nailed the vocal with that sense of foreboding coming through.
Inspired ending too.

Tremendous. That has been a dream of mine since I was a kid.

The word is overused...but, what the heck, this production is mesmerizing.

It's a wonderful confluence of lyric/vocal with the perfect backing tracks.

Outstanding!

+1 on What Dave said. This song is in the great category. Just loved your vocal and lyric. I too got the Pink Floyd vibe. Guitar was excellent. Just some very sweet placing...

Beautiful melancholy melody and chording, nice simple arrangement, great vocals and lyrics, superb guitar soloing. Pink Floyd and David Bowie vibes to me also.

Everything about this is top shelf. I really liked the stops and the effects on your vocals.

Everyone has already mentioned the appropriate accolades. Just know I feel the same way. That stop with the perfect amount of decay was terrific. The guitar work, vocal, backing tracks - all stellar. Kudos!

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

Excellent stuff, Bob.

A million miles away from your usual style and yet still so engaging and accomplished.

I heard Bowie before Pink Floyd, but yes, both in there.

Nice to hear you playing lead up-front - you should do that more often!

Going back for a second listen.

Regards, ROG.

Bob,

Surprisingly good. Don't get me wrong, your songs are always good, but this takes everything to a whole new level.
There's great dynamics in this song, some dark atmosphere and really beautiful vocals!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
