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.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

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.


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!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first?

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
