Tom, I really liked this. The chord progression is very nice and your vocals are very good. Your mix is perfect for this genre.

Hi Tom,

As everyone has already said - lots of power and drive. The drums sound great! Interesting ending. Great chorus - I really enjoyed this! Glad you posted it.

I'm of Welsh decent - Cardiganshire and Pembrokeshire. Never had a chance to get here. But been to Lancastershire a couple of times - the small village of Burtonwood, near Warrington.

Great post. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Alan

Tom,

Great sound on this one—that drum really gets the head bobbing. That piano is a magnetic and you use it with moderation, just in the right spots, but it still steals the song. Very well done!

Best regards,

Deej

Hi Tom,

very powerful stuff. I do like the discrepancy between that energetic backing track and the comparably calm way you sing. Enjoyed the listen very much and hope for more.

Cheers,

Stefan

What a tune! From the first 5 seconds, I knew this would be a good one. Tons of energy, and extremely catchy. With your top notch vocal delivery on top, it’s a hit! I can’t help but imagine how unreal this would sound performed live.


Great work and thanks for sharing smile

This song has the 80s sound that I love. Catchy tune. The piano makes this song stand out.

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.
