Bob,

This is brilliant. I wish I had written it. Totally jealous. It gave me goose bumps. It is one of my favorite songs now, ranking right up there with the best of Lou Reed, Bowie, or Dylan.

It needs to be the theme song to a major motion picture.

A masterpiece.

I'm late in listening and everything that I wanted to say already has been said. I totally agree with the following:

Bob,

Great song!
Heavy drums and your vocal are very nice and perfect fit this tune.
I agree with Alan.
You have one of the most signature sounds on the forum. You are a master of taking 2 or 3 chords, add a little here and a little there and come up with a fantastic, mind-blowing song.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi Bob,

Wow this is good.

I love that opening verse.

This is such good scene-setting writing. Time is set to 'right now' using the present verb tense and I love how 'watching you from the window' sets location so very, very well.

I also loved the phrase "friday night highway honcho". Those three long "i" sounds sitting side-by-side and the way they seamlessly overlap with the "h" alliteration is excellent ear candy! When I heard you sing this, I had to stop the track and just repeat the line a few times to myself... it caught my fancy smile

Terrific listening!

All the best,
Noel

I'm really surprised I missed this song, Bob
But it seems that way. I cannot add something new after what all others wrote. A very nice song.
I like the backgroundvoices, so subtle present but ominous (in a way).
All the time I expected you to raise your voice somewhere in the chorusses, but you stayed 'at ease'.

Thans Bob,
Hans

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location.
-The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
-Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry mode -the "N" mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When the dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current notation track.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
