RADIO MAGIC
By David Snyder

https://soundcloud.com/david-snyder-gigs2/radio-magic

V1

Everybody said we were born
On the wrong side of the street
We fought for everything we had
When it all seemed out of reach
All we had was our radio
You might say it wasn’t much

CHORUS

But that Radio Magic
Helped us fall in Love
That Radio Magic
Helped us fall in Love
And that was enough

V2

Now nobody can put us down
Cause we’re braver than the rest
We fought with heart and we sung with soul
When they put us to the test
All we had was our radio
You might say it wasn’t much

CHORUS

But that Radio Magic
Helped us fall in Love
That Radio Magic
Helped us fall in Love
And that was enough

Bridge

Oh I remember our fighting days
the summer time,
those ocean waves,
the board walk town,
the magic sound,
those frantic kisses under the stars,
the loud guitars
when we knew exactly who we are

CHORUS

And that Radio Magic
Helped us fall in Love
That Radio Magic
Helped us fall in Love
And that was enough
That was enough
That was enough
(repeat, ride out)

Nice... kinda Bruce Springsteen-ish ... loved that layering on the RADIO MAGIC phrase. Well done.

Hi David,

I fully agree with Herb's Springsteen analogy. This really is a terrific song. You'll touch a lot of memories for a lot of folks with this. I could instantly relate to this - mine was a blue and off-white transistor radio. I think a lot of old farts like me will be able to own the sentiment in this one. The chorus is total pleasure - both lyrically and the way you sound-crafted it. I can say without hesitation that this is my very favorite song of yours that I've heard. As I said over on Soundcloud - this is pure gold.

Alan

This song is magical! What a great sound and mix. Love the vocal.

A very cool blend of pop, rock and soul...

The chorus is a blend of honey and butter. Alan is right, you do touch a lot of memories with this song. This song sounds like it would have been part of that radio magic of yesteryear.

My 1st thought was Jefferson Starship's We Built This City as it has that nostalgia hit as well as a BIG chorus hook. It'd really suit that production and Grace's voice.
Great work.

Very cool tune David. I got the Springsteen vibe to start as well. Very cool harmonies. Super vocal and backtrack. Such a creative lyric. Super story telling. Well done

My new favorite from you I think. What a song!

Just great writing, very easy to relate to the lyrics.

Man, and the way you handled that chorus ... brilliant!

Excellent, David!

David, thanks for posting this. Here's what struck me most about your track:

1) Really liked how you doubled up on the "radio magic" words in the chorus...very effective!
2) Loved your overall concept, on the radio--as has been said before, the old-timers here remember the first notes of "She Loves Me" and other "magic" coming through the little transister radio that was tucked under the pillow, until the 9v battery wore out!

----Sorry about that very specific memory, but I'll bet alot of the forum friends remember that one clearly!

3) Great design overall, chorus repeat, the way you ending it...all the way around, excellent production concept.

4) I didn't get the reference to the fighting, but I'm thinking that it comes from being on opposite sides of the track? But I liked the idea that common radio experiences were able to resolve conflict.

Thanks again for keeping the creativity going!

Sounds like a David Snyder song to me.

Super cool sound in the chorus. Very Pop.... good arrangement... nice mix.

Could easily see this making a little Radio Magic.

That was enough.

David, great harmonies on the chorus. Good mix and arrangement. A well written driving rock song. One of your most relatable in my opinion. Well done, Tom

David,

Love the chorus hook and the pop energy you bring to this.
Very radio ready with some nice modern touches (crunchy drums!) on the production.
Excellent vocal and harmonies!

The radio was such a powerful thing back in the day. I kind of miss that radio seems to have phased out and there are fewer and fewer radio stations now that everything is hand-held these days, or is being streamed.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi David,

Great song - I really liked it. Instantly activated a lot of memories from the 70s where I spend many nights listening to Radio Luxembourg (probably an European thing).

Thanks for sharing!
Will

What a tune! A really powerful and relatable song. Love the chorus on this one - super catchy, and the layering is superb. Definitely picking up on the Springsteen vibes too.

You should be proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile

You've written a great nostalgic song... I think I'm hearing a Hal Ketchum quality to the piece... Nice work... Question AM or FM

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
