Hi Ember!

I didn't get to catch the eclipse but when I was writing these lyrics, I had the below image of a super-moon open on my desktop. This gave me the opening lines! (I've found that when I'm stuck for words, looking at a picture often helps.)

It's a strange and stunning phenomenon how a rising moon can sometimes seem incredibly huge -- magnified by the earth's atmosphere. Then, as it rises higher in the night sky, it shrinks back to its normal size as seen from Earth.

Thanks for passing through the thread smile

All the best,
Noel

Well done in all areas.
Cracker tune.


Hey Ray,

Thanks for visiting. I always like reading about how you hear my songs. I'm glad you had the time.

Thanks again!

Hi Peter,

This is a period in the development of modern music that really appeals me. I believe that the days of Tin Pan Alley saw melodists and lyricists reach some dizzying heights. That so many songs from this period still populate people's repertoire today is testimony to the talent of these yesteryear songwriters.

Thanks for passing through the thread.

All the best,
Noel

Really beautiful Noel!

Those lyrics are sublime and your vocals are outstanding!

What settings did you use in Nectar to process the vocals? They are so warm and clear.

This made me smile the second I listen to the first line of the song. Super clear mix and excellent work.

Noel, I loved the use of the different bass tracks. Your arrangement is put together with great skill and your vocal styling is smooth and perfect for the genre. Crystal clear mix that just can’t be improved in any way. Another uplifting gem for your catalog. I immensely enjoyed it, Tom

Hi ROG,

I don't often read "classy" in the same paragraph as my name! Thanks for that smile This is a period in music that I really like. It's genre that's stood the test of time for sure.

I appreciate the visit and the comments.

Thanks again,

Hi Noel
hope all is well with you!

Song
Overall impression
Retro – becoming your speciality!
done with affection and respect
Mix / Production
all sounded well balanced to me
Instrumentation
Piano phrases are judiciously placed
Not all the solo (trumpet?) works for me
Vocals
you’ve worked hard on your vox Noel and it shows!
What I really liked
Slick production
well structured
What you might like to return to
the ‘outro’ lyrics seem a little odd to me – not altogether in phase with the rest of the song.

Hi Janne!

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it. By the way, I'm a pretty big fan of Cole Porter. He was a very clever songwriter with both words and music.

All the best as spring starts to come your way!

Really well done! Such a "feel good", uplifting vibe happening.

Love the solo, and the piano sounds great! Makes me wish I had bought it when it was on sale a while back.

Your vocals sound good too, just the right amount of processing for them to sit in the mix perfectly.

Nice song to start off my morning smile


Hi Dave,

Thanks for the uplifing review. Very much appreciated.

All the best,
Noel

Noel....
Nothing I can add to the favorable comments already stated....all of which I concur with.
Your vocals are very distinct and pleasing to the auditory receptors.
You performed the song and this genre perfectly....relaxed and deliberate.
Reminds me of an innocent, more care free state of mind during my youth prior to my military picnic.

Very well done.....carry on.

And Bud offers up that the band, especially the piano and trumpet, is excellent. Thanks for sharing your work flow...it was very informative and it certainly paid off.

You always bring multiple rays of hope and positive vibes to your listeners.

Thank you.

Hi Janice and Bud,

Thanks for all the encouragement! I really appreciate it.

I never lose sight of the fact that the real star of the show, though, is Band In A Box. These days I cannot imagine life without the program. I know I could never write the songs I do without this software.

To be able to re-create the sounds of yesteryear so effortlessly and to have the result sounding so professional with minimal effort never ceases to amaze me... it's a bit like magic!

All the best to you both,
Noel
