I worked this song a lot, adding drum loops, a guitar and my own midi baseline - but I still didnt like it so I plugged the chords into BIAB to get some neat "texture tracks" (baseline, synth, etc)

Hope you like it

Fabkebab.. hey, I really liked this!! I listened to it several times… I think the overall production is really solid, I liked that the track wasn’t too heavy with sound, I liked all of your add-ins, like the synth and different punctuations that you did, I thought the lyrics were really creative and the rhymes were very inventive … Looking forward to hearing more!

Excellent -
Sounds very English - a little like Al Stewart on his earlier albums - when he had a sense of humour.
A little de essing would be good but that's just a nit to pick.

Wow - you really did a phenomenal job here! It sounds really modern, and as someone who is in Band-in-a-Box every single day, there were moments here I absolutely wouldn't have thought Band-in-a-Box played a part in creating if I didn't know otherwise. It is so unique in it's delivery, especially in juxtaposition to what you typically hear on the user showcase.

Great work, and thanks for sharing smile

Good job on this. Really like how the music builds. Great lyrics and performance. A tiny nit- the vocals needs to sit back a touch but that's just me. Well done. Rob

The song comes across so effortlessly! I would never have guessed that you were unhappy with the song. It ended up being a really beautiful song. I hope you're proud, because it's actually pretty good! smile Worth all the hard work.

Thanks for sharing.

Hello, Fabkebab

Very nice melody!
The construction of music is excellent.
Especially I like the following place.
Where it is modulated to Emajor via G#7 and pretending to end with Emajor but ends with C#minor.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.
