One of the truly great things about Band-In-A-Box is that allows you to create so many different styles and kinds of music.

From simple, intimate indie-artist-style productions to big-commercial-style Pop, Rock or Country (just to name a couple).

This would be on the "bigger" end...

SHE'S COME AROUND

i've always let her have her way
but this time she was wrong
she said love can be a sometime thing
i couldn't go along
i drew her close and kissed her
from deep within my soul
i felt it when she changed her mind
every part of her let go
   
   she's come around to my way of loving
   now she knows it's all or nothing
   i stood my ground wouldn't give up
   there's no half-way when it comes to love
   where we used to go head-to-head
   we're now heart-to-heart instead
   she's come around to my way of loving

she likes french wine and russian novels
baseball's what i know
i'm bbq and country music
she's pasta and rock and roll
she says "vive la difference"
i say "what the hell"
sometimes i don't know what she's thinking
but there's one thing i can tell
   
   repeat chorus


Hope you enjoy it.
Comments welcome, as always.
Have at it.

Hey ...

First row center ... unless someone sneaks in!

This is a terrific song. Big sound ... big production ... big smiles for the listeners. That bass line really drives this. Your lyrics are always at the top of the list.

That lead guitar really puts a stamp on this ... perfect choice. That last verse really talks to me. I can relate. Also, that short guitar riff before the tag line was a real nice touch.

As always ... exceptional in every way. Wishing you & yours the very best ...

Alan

What a tune! Love the progressions and your vocals on this. The tune flows tremendously well and has a really polished sound. Wouldn't bat an eyelash if I heard this on the radio.

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

First things that grab me are the piano and drums

your drums are always clear and kicking, that piano cuts thru nicely

and has some great parts.

You and Tom both have baseball in your new songs,

I'm a baseball addict since childhood, it's like a religion

even tho it changes it's been one of the most consistent and reliable

touchstones in my life. Maybe because of spring training and these monstrous contracts

being given out, it catches your attention. I haven't really been able to work it into a song

but I'll keep trying.

It's also a great love song,

there's no half-way when it comes to love
where we used to go head-to-head
we're now heart-to-heart instead
she's come around to my way of loving

this is why you are one of my favorite song writers

The uplifting drive and feel good energy deliver here in spades

you're an optimist, aren't ya

I love it, glad I'm here to listen and enjoy your music,

Kenny

Hi Floyd.

What a great song and a great BIG sound.

High spots for me - well, obviously the lead guitar, but also the fabulous drum sound. Loved the kick drum!

All the things I expect from you, super vocals, excellent mix etc. were all there as usual,
making up a very professional package.

ROG.

Man, those drums!! Such a great sound, really drives the song.

Always enjoy listening to your music, not only because of the great songs, but because everything always just sounds "right".

Another winner, enjoyed very much!

Thanks, Alan. I always appreciate your nice reviews. Some folks don't "get" a "bigger" production. Oh well..

Happy Birthday!!!

FJ,
quite different from past tunes smile Reminded me how good Pop Rock can be if you put mind and soul to it. Excellent arrangement and mix. Love choruses and story line!

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Awesome Floyd! You seem to have an endless supply of great material constantly flowing to us here! That second verse was some really great writing! The chorus is catchy and memorable! Add one more to your impressive catalog of songs! Thanks, Torrey

As mentioned previously, a big sound here. Great use of the climbing guitar line as a signature lick. Once again you have used the organ to come in later as a build. You are the master of love songs! So many flavors in your catalog on this theme and they all stand on their own. I loved the clever but not too cute lyrics and you provided a great vocal to go along with the outstanding production. Tom

They always say opposite attract, so true. Differences is what makes the world go around. Nice write and good production as usual. Do you ever write a "bad song"?

Another hit Floyd. Your vocal and backtrack were awesome. I love how you mix your songs. All the instruments are so easy to pick out and so tight together. A true art. My favorite part of the song is the guitar. Such a cool tone and just bites through when it comes up front. Well done

Awesome vocal! Powerful song. I specially like the contrasts in the second verse--top quality writing there.
