Noel with your permission I would love to play this song on my easy does it show on hospital radio here in Scotland. Perfect fit for my 2nd hour on Friday nights. This is only the 2nd song I've listened to so far so this makes it two in a row. I'm a sucker for lovely ballads and I really love this one

Noel, IMHO this is your best to date. Your backing tracks are perfect! Your vocals are excellent, as usual, but your lyrics took it over the top for me. Your mix is also perfect!


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Noel, to have played ANY part in this song is an honor.

It's a touching production in ALL aspects.

It meant so much to Janice's mother...more than we can ever express.

Coming from the depth of your soul and heart makes it a very special production.

Thank you.

"It was so hot that I burnt my fingers" etc.
"And I’m so thankful for them all" begs a conclusion such "that I pray each night for your safety." etc etc.
I only mention that because there's nothing else in the lovely piece that made me think "If it were me..."
I do take much from the fact that sentence, stanza, paragraph or lyric didn't start with so!
Moel,
Classic stuff and someone should pick it up and use it in time for Mum's Day 2020.


Hi Ray,

Thank you for the insight both musical and grammatical. I wasn't aware that "so" was used in such contexts. Where I grew up, "so" was used in the way that I used it so it's probably just a local vernacular thing.

Thanks again for taking the time...

All the best,
Noel

The production is superb. The guitars sound as good as guitars can.

Your vocal is good on every level. Well sung, well recorded, well processed - and sitting perfectly in the mix. And the mix is excellent throughout.

A beautiful sentiment, a beautiful package.

Nice one, Noel.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
