I fully intended to work on instrumental material for the foreseeable future until I listened to the song Jim posted a week or two ago that had a Beatle-esque sound to it and...wham inspiration struck! This one is from the heart and has a familiar melody to it but I cannot place it so I went with it! Hopefully I haven't borrowed too heavily from someone! It's a very simple song...simple lyrics and guitar but it's what felt natural for it! The only thing that was a bit complicated was the background harmony vocals. I'm in no way done here and this will need further mixing with volume tweaking of the vocals and guitar but decided to go ahead and present it as is because it will be a while until I have access to my studio! I hope someone finds it worth their time to listen! Thanks, Torrey

If I could make a mountain move
It wouldn't save the wayward son
I must have love, love for everyone
The greatest gift we can receive
Is the one we must give away
And it's done when we love everyone
You cant be everything to everyone
But you can be something to someone
Now in the end when life is done
And our time here has passed away
What mattered most did we love everyone
Dont live in the past
Dwelling on what you should have done
Just face the new day
Oh go and help someone

Hi Torry,

You've excelled yourself here. What a truly wonderful listen!



I love the lines...

"The greatest gift we can receive
Is the one we must give away"

That's really inspired writing!

You've set the forum's bar-of-excellence way up in the stratosphere with this presentation. Your writing, arranging, producing and performing have created a first-class musical treat.

In a word... "Wow!"

All the best,
Noel

Torrey,

A terrific listen.

A beautiful sentiment and a beautiful write - solid.

"You cant be everything to everyone
But you can be something to someone"

Nice.

The production is a match for the quality of the lyric. Parts of the melody are "familiar", but are more "glimpses of influence" than anything else. And they really work to keep the ear engaged.

Excellent vocal. Excellent mix. Crisp and clear. Nice "drop" at the end, too!

Oh yeah, I love this! Great mood and lyric.

Vocals are right in the pocket as is the guitar, just perfect for the piece.

Really good, Torrey, very much enjoyed!

I loved this Torrey. Loved the intro for the song. Vocal was just excellent. Really loved the harmonies. Your guitar was sweet and tasteful. such a compliment to the song. This song had a big feel to it. Very cool message in the lyrics. Well done.

Wow - what a tune smile It is incredibly heart felt, and there's some really memorable lines in this. Plus your vocals are top notch and those harmonies are rock solid. Love the progressions as well, and it's perfectly catchy. All around a solid write.

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

Beautiful !

Influences of Beatle music for sure

done so remarkably well, I hear some post Beatle McCartney in there.

I wish that I was capable of doing that.

love it,

Kenny

Beautiful...
Simple beautiful...
Sounds more like a new freshly released McCartney/Wings song...
And hopefully you will take this statement as a compliment...
BTW - I think that "familiar melody" you "cannot place" is just a snippet from the tail end of "If I Fell in Love With You".

Torrey, this is excellent! Very well written. Your vocals are always good, but I think this is some of your best. The guitar solo is very tastefully done.

I like everything about this. The message is strong.

GREAT JOB!

Hello Torrey, This is a great mix. Reminded me a little of super tramp with a touch of George Harrison.
I really liked the chord progression. Great write thanks for listing. Rob

Outstanding work. Surely some McCartney, but also some Harrison in those (what he called) "naughty chords". Preach.

Sweet lyric and a great musical backing - the melody is def. late Beatlesque but not a lift/steal/borrow.
The vocal treatment reinforces the fabfourness - you harmonize with yourself REALLY well.
Class act Torrey.

Torrey,

This is a great song... I love the very measured delivery of the verses - you really know how to put a message and song across.

Excellent production - sounds like an album cut.

Loved it!

Beautiful chording and melody, some familiar elements from the Beatles and their followers, but still uniquely wrapped in your own style. Great vocals, especially the harmony. Not many lines of lyrics but they are all perfect jewels to be admired.

After several listens, the hook melody reminded me of songs like Land Of Make Believe and Ammonia Avenue, completely different songs, but just wanted to share this interesting association smile

Torrey,
Super tune! Yep, I can see a little bit of Jim in it smile
Beautiful arrangement and vocals. Reminded me more of ELO than Beatles...but that might be my own hallucinations. Inspired, but not "heavily borrowed" in any way. Solid original. I would put this among top tunes I have heard of yours.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac.

With Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac there are a lot of new features, 202 RealTracks, and more. We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from our users. There are several sources, our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

Here is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "Why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. We hope that many of them are relevant to you as well. And please keep suggesting new ones, we appreciate that.

Q. Almost all of my music apps are 64 bit, as is my Mac OS. But Band-in-a-Box® is 32 bit. And Apple's next OS, Catalina 10.15 is set to be released in October 2019 (the beta is available now), and that won't even run 32-bit apps! Can you make a 64 bit version?
A. Yes, we’ve done this with Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Mac. The app is 64 bit and the executable name is still Band-in-a-Box®.app (if you have an older 32-bit version it will get automatically renamed during the install to Band-in-a-Box®-32bit.app ).

Q. I have 64 bit plugins that I want to use with Band-in-a-Box®. But they only work with 64 bit apps. Can I use them with Band-in-a-Box® 2019, without having to use any special software for this?
A. Yes, 64 bit Plugins work natively with the 64 bit version of Band-in-a-Box® 2019. This means you can use your 64 bit plugins, including ones that use huge amounts of memory (more than 2GB).

Q. Does Band-in-a-Box® 2019 work on the latest OS, Catalina 10.15, as that has many changes?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 is 64-bit and runs great on Catalina (and older OS's down to and including 10.6.8 Snow Leopard)

Q. I like Snow Leopard as an OS (10.6.8), will Band-in-a-Box® 2019 still run on that with all features working?
A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64 bit version runs great on older OS's including Snow Leopard, and has identical features and operation to the newer OS's
