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!

This is WONDERFUL Torrey, and I really love the lush arrangement and the guitar solo.

Your stuff is SO ELO man.

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!

Bob

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® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
