Thanks Jim - just a quick write to fit the music no truth to the lyric.

Peter & Leon,
A good carefree pop feel to that refrain- I like the way you build with repeats on the chorus....the highlight for me is those twin leads.

Catchy song, guitar buried the vox but that can be fixed. Would like to hear a revision.

Nice song! It could be even better if you could mix the vocal so it gets more upfront. But even if the vocals are a bit in the "mud" it is easy to hear that you have made a great song!

Thanks for sharing!

Good guitar stuff throughout - the outro is especially nice.

I agree that the vocal needs a bit more clarity. The vocal frequency and guitar frequencies seem to be about the same place, causing a conflict...

An enjoyable tune. Glad to see y'all back in the swing of things.

Thanks floyd appreciate the comments and analysis.

Thanks Greg - the vocal is what you get when the guitarist does the mix!

Peter and Leon,

Catchy tune, and like the lyrics. Definitely think the vocal can come more forward just a tad—but that’s an easy adjustment, and then you’ll really have something. Very listenable and engaging. Good luck with this one!

All the best,

Deej

Bouncy and fun. I love the way the chorus builds at the end. I expected a fade at 2:50, but why cover up a perfectly good solo? smile


Listening on near field monitors and I agree.

The guitar parts are very good, nice playing! I also like the backing tracks. Just bring up the vocals.


Thanks Mario.

Thanks - certainly not one of Leon's most profound lyrics just a quickie to go with the backing.

Peter&Leon.

Very positive, light hearted song. Listens very well. Guitars are super!
Enjoyed it!

P.S. I read first two comments... about the vocals being buried a bit. I have very (very!) neutral headphones and it sounds good to me, but I probably agree that with slight bass coloring vocals can easily sink.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
