Yes, Sanne Salomonsen for sure deserves attention. She was/is very popular in most of the northern countries of Europe:

I've listened to that song so many times during dark moments that now it is like a friend. No other song has affected me so deeply.


Mornin' Mr. Fogle...

First of all, let me say that the way you described your affection for this song, is as poignant in its own way as the lyrics for "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry". Second thing is, as a result of the number of people who have responded to this thread, I am being exposed to a whole mess'a music that I had been only casually aware of, and so, I'm grateful for that!

Yes, indeed, Hank Williams' sorrowful voice sure does send those lyrics to a place in the heart that is dark, seemingly hopeless, and final. In fact, his misery sounds so complete that it's almost suicidal.

And yet, you say you find a comfort in it! Could it be that by comparing your own situation, or state-of-mind, to the song's depressive outlook, that it reminds you to count your blessings? smile

Mr. Fogle, thank you for posting these lyrics-you-wish-you-had-written!

Hello, RichMac...

Boy, is there ever a lot to like about these lyrics for "Gun Street Girl"!

The free-verse, almost rhymeless word structure gives the song a spoken-word quality, which in turn caused this listener to imagine that I was absorbing a colorful (if somewhat violently-imaged) tall-tale being spun by some gruff, seen-it-all, down-and-outer passing through town on his way to his next cup of coffee and another drunken adventure!

You can smell the old tobacco, breath-warmed whiskey, and feel the subject's survival-tested personality from the beginning to the end of the song.

Thanks for posting these lyrics-you-wish-you-had-written, "RichMac"

Mine's a little different from what's been posted so far. There are a lot of loud, raucous songs i really like and make get on the dance floor and make a fool of myself - and I have fun doing it. But I'm a sucker for a heartbreaking, tear jerking song. And this is my favorite as it never fails to touch me.

What I like so much about this song is that no matter who or what you are, you're not immune to heartbreak. And regardless of how much money you have, the position you hold, or how strong you are, your heart is always vulnerable beyond your ability to protect it. The innocence of the lyric reminds us how fragile we are beneath our public facade.

There were two fairly big hits with it that I'm aware of: Carlene Carter and Jessica Andrews. The song was written by Carlene Carter's keyboard player, Denmont Tench. This is my wife, Di, singing it in a simple video. It's very close to the Jessicas Andrews rendition.

"Unbreakable Heart"

An empty room a broken fairytale
A hollow girl with empty arms
From an angels tears God made the stars
Why can't He make me an unbreakable heart
In my blue world you shone like heavens fire
And left me cryin' in the dark
How could anyone be so hard
Did you think I had an unbreakable heart

I suppose I should know
Sometimes love just comes and goes
But I believed foolish me
Wed go on and on

One day someone will come to you
And rock you tightly in her arms
Please remember this when you drop your guard
Nobody has an unbreakable heart
From an angels wings to a fallen star
God makes everything but unbreakable hearts

(c) Benmont Tench

Thank you, Jim. I have about 200 videos in this simple video format of her singing plus over a thousand audio only recordings by her.

This song touches me in so many ways and her voice, in my opinion, is perfect for it. Unfortunately, her health is so bad now she doesn't have enough energy to make all the way through a song. She took one of my very favorite songs and made it so very special. Glad you enjoyed it. Wishing you the very best.

Alan

Dear Alan...

This is the first time I ever heard you singing, Ms. Di. As soon as you opened her mouth (and heart) to sing "Unbreakable Heart", I was silenced, immediately and awesomely. How clear, how expressive, how emotionally affecting your voice is! I felt deep down in my soul every word of those heart-breaking lyrics. I wished someone had been present with me as I listened to you, so I could tell them urgently, "Hey! Hey, you all, pipe down, and then get yourselves in here and listen to this woman sing!"

Thank you, thank you, Ms. Di, for this lovely, lovely Christmas gift that you gave to this thread. God bless you, and keep you, too.

Alan, the lyrics are so imaginative in the they illuminate the subject of the song -- broken hearts -- that they could soothe the pain of any heart-broken soul who read them:

"From an angels tears God made the stars..."

"In my blue world you shone like heavens fire..."

Those words assembled with such undeniable inspiration crystallize so much feeling that they made me sit still with my eyes closed so my heart could see what they were saying.

Thank you, Alan and Ms. Di, for enriching my evening with this song. I hope that you two have a warm, memorable, nostalgic and spiritually meaningful Christmas and New Year smile.

Most sincerely,

LOREN

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
