Here is a musical reaction to all the dirty little secrets oozing out of the crevices in recent years...
If you are not guilty...
I hope you enjoy this throwaway song from 2018 FAWM.

Technical Info:
Song: MeToo.Mgu
Style: NG004x.Sty (Changed to Real Tracks but that information has been lost blush )

Jim you are very good at using simple little musical phrases and singing on top of them with a memorable lyric! You have once again produced something that really works! Thanks, Torrey

Yep, the video is fun but the sentiment is powerful and the movement is long overdue.

Torrey pretty much nailed our thoughts about the write and production.

Throwaway? We are glad you didn't and shared it with us!

Jim,
Fun and to the point.
The FAWM deadline seems to work well to get the ideas flowing.

love it Jim

well done, video is excellent

catchy, timely, to the point

we've become a super paranoid and butt-hurt society

there's legitimate problems and then there's college students

needing a time out because words and reality offends.

good vocals, love it

Jim,
Ha ha! funny! I agree 100% with Kenny's comments above.
I guess it is one of the most effective and smart ways to show flaws in society - through satire.
Nicely put together and performed! I wish you well & not to be eaten by hypocrites.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Cute song and video Jim!! Yes, the me too movement has taken out a lot of people....and the vast majority (at least) seem to be deserving of that. Fun stuff!! Take care. Greg

Jim,

Love the sound of this one—very catchy, some really great instrumentation. And married with that “me too” refrain, it borders on ear worm territory. Well done!

All the best,

Deej

Nice!

I find it interesting that people are giving it diametrically opposed interpretations.

It reminds me that sometimes, saying less is actually saying more, because it allows people to read their own ideas into lyrics.

In any event, I enjoyed the listen. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Jim,

A clever write.

A good production. Fits the song perfectly.

A good mix.

Well done (again!)

For your listen, comments, & support...
I must admit I had my doubts about the value of this tune...

Thanks Robert...
Your support & comments are always appreciated...
I agree with you about the value of FAWM deadline...
However with Biab 14 songs ideas in 28 days is pretty easy to reach...
If the participant doesn't mind giving up some sleep.

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
