THERES STRAY DOGS A HOWLING
AND THE SUN HURTS MY EYES
AND THE NEIGHBOURS JUST WATCH ME FALL IN
THESE MEMORIES THAT WONT
LEAVE ME ALONE IN THE NIGHT
HAVE STARTED ME DRINKING AGAIN


I DRINK TO FORGET HER I DRINK TO MOVE ON
I CANT FIGHT THIS DEMON WITHIN
AND EVERY TIME I HEAR OUR FAVORITE SONG
IT STARTS ME A DRINKING AGAIN


I DRINK TO FORGET BUT NEVER FORGET TO DRINK
ITS A PRICE I MUST PAY FOR MY SINS
AND COME CLOSING TIME WHEN LONELENESSS CALLS
IT STARTS ME A DRINKING AGAIN


SOLO FIDDLE


I DRINK TO FORGET BUT NEVER FORGET TO DRINK
ITS A PRICE I MUST PAY FOR MY SINS
AND COME CLOSING TIME WHEN LONELENESSS CALLS

Such a sad song. Was this by chance for the sad song challenge people were doing in the other subforum? Either way, it's a beautiful song. Thanks for sharing.

Brad,

The slow, modern waltz accompaniment is a perfect fit for this composition.

Your lyrics and the way you sang them filled my speakers with the sounds of reflection, regret, loneliness and sadness. You managed to capture all the emotions needed to make this a very listenable journey.

Thank you for sharing.

Regards,
Noel

Wow - you really bared your soul here. There's nothing that hits quite like an old school sad country tune. Your vocal deliver on here drives the point here, and lends merit to the lyrics. Very believable, and very sincere to the ears.

Not a thing I'd change on this one - thanks for sharing smile

Brad/John/BigLad,
I was really happy when the vocal wasn't shouted as the capitalized lyric suggested they might be.
This is a near perfect country drink'n song: you've covered the traditional bases - dogs, rejection, drinking, jilted lover & a clever twist to turn a phrase in on itself.
I don't know about tears in my bear (sic) as Rob suggested but definitely sobs in the suds, blubberin' into the Burbon and tears in the tequila.
This song would've fitted on Elvis Costello's country LP Almost Blue.

Hi Brad,

I have to agree with Herb on this one. Definitely a George Jones bent. Super job. For what it;'s worth, perhaps just a tad more reverb on the vocal.

That fiddle lead is great!

Alan

We've made it even easier to get started with Band-in-a-Box® with the Easy Payment Plan 4 - when you choose this payment option you'll pay four equal monthly payments starting on the day of your order.

Choose your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows package & order here.

Using Mac? Order here.

When you get to the checkout, simply click on Select Easy Payment Plan 4 for this product to apply this option.

Note: This only applies to this Band-in-a-Box product, and does not apply to other products that you might have in your order, including the physical backup copy if selected.

Band-in-a-Box® File Associations

You may have noticed when you were installing Band-in-a-Box® for Windows that you were asked if you would like to Associate Band-in-a-Box songs and styles with Band-in-a-Box? But, what does that mean?

It's actually pretty simple - basically, if you select this option while you're installing the program, files with the extensions .SGU, .MGU, and other Band-in-a-Box files will open directly in the program if you select them from outside the program.

Missed this option during your setup, but you'd like to apply it now? Go to File | File Utilities | Associate File types with Explorer within the program.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
