Another "lingering" project that seems ready to post..
In 1921 Dr. Frank Crane wrote a list of 10 daily commitments that I've found so perfect for daily living...so here it is in a song: Just for Today

-------------------
Just for today
Live by the hour;
Just for today
Be like a flower;
Happy for what may come your way;
Bloom to greet the precious day.

Just for today
Don't be a changer;
Just for today
Pray for a stranger;
Do something good with no return;
Misunderstood is no concern.

So much beauty in life deserves my love;
And with my love I know I'll erase some sadness;
Today's the only day--
There's no one to take my place;
I'll live out today with grace;
A simple pace.. and borrow
On tomorrow.

Just for today
Ponder a question;
Just for today
Give a suggestion;
Don't let the moment slip away.
Get up and bloom without delay.

So much beauty in life deserves my love;
And with my love I know I'll erase some sadness;
Today's the only day--
And no one will take my place;
I'll live out today with grace;
And on my mind's face
An angel's smile
Just for today.

Very different intro. Cool backtrack. Really liked the vocal. The song really picked up as it went along. Well done

Nice work on this one Tano smile A very unique listen, and but very distinct and catchy none the less. I like the progressions here, and your vocals are among the best I've heard so far.

Excellent job - thanks for sharing!

Yes, as mentioned, somewhat different but very enjoyable. As the song progressed, it became more and more flushed out. That sax solo was particularly nice - too bas it wasn't longer.

Nice song and nice delivery! Best to you.

Although it is somewhat different it is an excellent song. Excellent vocals in this. Your mix was spot on.

This was a very enjoyable listen.

I really like this.

It's easy to tell that you've put a huge effort into arranging and producing the music to give you the exact orchestral/instrumental backing that you required. To my ears, you have been meticulous in creating this production.

All the best,
Noel

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

That must have taken some time. There are so many things that come in and out, here and there. Nice job!

Very positive song in every way. Very nice arrangement, I like those percussions. Could be a nice song for a musical.

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.
