Lyrics:

MY PRIME INTEREST (Is You)

Verse:
Saving for a rainy day that may never come,
Is hard when there’s bills to be paid,
With so little left for fun.
But the interest I pay on your love that I get,
Makes me only want to get deeper in debt.


Chorus:
My prime interest is you. My prime interest is you.
Our love is safe, locked away, and my prime interest is you.


Verse:
May never be a millionaire, think I’ll stop trying.
In your love I own a million shares, and I’m still buying.
And if success in life is based on the things that I hold,
Then having you here girl, is wealth untold.


Chorus:
My prime interest is you. My prime interest is you.
Our love is safe, locked away, and my prime interest is you


Bridge:
The other accounts were closed so long ago.
And just for the record girl, I want you to know…


Chorus:
My prime interest is you. My prime interest is you.
Our love is safe, locked away, and my prime interest is you

Great writing & production...
I like the lyrical hook & especially the line...

But the interest I pay on your love that I get,
Makes me only want to get deeper in debt.


Nice lyrical touch...
I enjoyed listening your song...
Good job!

Really well done! Nice and catchy, and a fantastic groove to push it all along. It flows magnificently well, and the production on this is top notch. I wouldn't bat an eyelash hearing this on the radio.

Thanks for sharing smile

Hi BIGALTX, Great choice of instrumentation on this. This is beautiful and I really dug the chord progression. Great tone with the guitar too and fantastic work on the vocals. Thanks for sharing!

WOW... Deryk... Thanks so much!
I asked a relative of mine (an amazing musician, who has done studio work) about the quality of the Real Tracks. He said they were as good or better than I could get if I hired musicians and studio time in a local studio (a well known and respected studio).

He just confirmed what I thought. The Real Tracks (in my opinion) could be used on ANYONE'S project. They are THAT good.

Most folks have no problem using drum tracks like EZ Drummer, etc, but would balk at using "canned" guitar, bass, etc tracks.
NOT ME.

Anyway, thanks for the "ready for radio" comment.
alan
PS... I know others are requesting it, but please consider splitting the drums into at least 4 tracks. Kick, snare, and stereo overheads.
To me... that's the only thing lacking in BIAB!

Thanks so much, Joe!
And thanks for helping to bring Band In A Box to hack musicians (like me).
I play bass, rhythm guitar, and keys, but I could never play like these "Real Track Musicians".
Not in a million years.
I hope to have some BIAB "testimonial" and "how-to" videos soon.
I've been using BIAB since at least 2004, maybe earlier.
More songs coming soon...

By the way... Is there a way to change my Username from "bigaltx" to my real name (if I decide to do that)?
Thanks,

Clever write, well sung and produced.

There's a "skip" in playback at about 1:00 at the word "May".

Nicely done! smile

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

I really like the name you chose for the song, and I really like the country flare you gave the song. It has just enough of that country 'twang' without being overbearing. Very tastefully done. Thanks for sharing!

Alan,
Very nice song. Cool analogy smile
Listens easy, vocals and mix are very smooth.

P.S. Maybe a tiny bit more verb on vocals to blend better.

Thank you for sharing,
Misha.
