Hi all. I came across this great style and had to write something for it.
The lyrics are a sort of throw back to the fifties and sixties.
Had lots of fun doing this tune.
All comments welcome. Rob

[Link no longer valid]


Oh the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in.

I left my love in country side cant make up my mind.
Though I love her so to leave or stay could not decide
Would she be mind for ever more I ask the stars above

I wanna hold her I wanna kiss her I want her love.

Oh Please help me out help me solve the dilemma I'm in.
Then I'll be much more happier than I been.

So Please help me out help me solve the dilemma I'm in.
Then I'll be much more happier than I been.

Oh the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in.

Bridge

Please help me out help me solve the dilemma I'm in.
Then I'll be much more happier than I been.

She called me up say she had another Beau.
And back to the country side I should not go.
She wished me all the best and sent a hug.

I wanna hold her I wanna kiss her I want her love.

Please help me out help me solve the dilemma I'm in.
Then I'll be much more happier than I been.

So Please help me out help me solve the dilemma I'm in.

Then I'll be much more happier than I been.
Oh the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in, the dilemma I'm in.

Bob,
must be a blast from the past. This is a second 50s-60s style tune I am hearing today at User Showcase. I love music of that period. I believe you done a great job reviving beautiful and exiting period in music.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

The sense of longing in this song definitely came across, and I think the song itself is lovely. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent tune Rob. Love your vocals. Reminds me of the songs where country and rock and roll were very close to each other. Very cool..

Great song...
The lyrics, melody, backing, & vocals...
Take me back to days when Don Gibson's song were sung by Roy Orbison...
Great footsteps you are walking in...
Thanks for sharing & keep up the good work!

Hello Misha. You may have noticed that I also love the music from 50s and 60s.
Life was a lot more simple back then and music was fun.
Thanks for listening. Rob

Hey there Rob, I admired the overall vibe on this. This is beautiful and I really dug the chord progression. Great effects on the vocals. Keep it up!

Rob, this track has a super sound to it! Everything sounds pro all the way! Your vocal is great (once again) and you really channeled some of the beautiful nuances of the vocals of Elvis in this! Enjoyed it!! Thanks, Torrey

Rob,

A retro sound from beginning to end. Very catchy - an ear worm... like a hit from the era...

A very cohesive mix - smooth and quite tight.

Well done.

It reminds me, as the others have said, of Roy Orbison, especially the intro. I love the Big O. Very catchy tune.

Hello Rib

Oh yeah ... liking this a big ole bunch! You have a touch of Marty Robbins in your voice. This might be a bit far-fetched but I could hear Bobby Darin doing this back in the day. Great song and terrific delivery. Loved it!

I'm seeing a possible trend here, country musicians returning to the roots of the genre. We have seen a backlash against moral corruption in Hollywood. Hollywood's response is has been to scapegoat a couple of personalities and double down. As far as country music goes, over the years we have seen the younger generations turn away from what they call, with disdain, Modern Country.
George Strait built a career as a honky tonk musician. Look at his new album: he looks at the dark side of the honky tonks, pays tribute to those who wear the badge, and reaffirms basic American values. Ya think?

Thanks for the journey back Rob. The good old days were certainly not good old days for everybody for many reasons...but for us, from a musical perspective, they are good indeed. Particularly this period.

During those days "pop" radio played about every genre imaginable and exposed folks to a lot of music they would never hear in today's genre based playlists, etc. This song would've fit perfectly on about any station back then.

The write, vocal and the entire production harken back to all that was good in music then.

Well done!

This video was posted on January 23, 2015 to the Keyboard Instrument Chops and Gear YouTube Channel.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
