Hi all. Had some fun with this great style. (POKEY.STY Pokey Pickin Rockabilly Swing) I put some distortion on the "don't come round" vocal.
All comments welcome.Rob

Dont Come Over

Well don't come over to my house and push me all around.
Oh don't come over to my house and look me up and down.

Your wicked words wont break my bones mean not a thing to me.
You keep banging on the door to catch a glimpse of me don't come around.

Bridge

Well don't come over to my house the curtains have been drawn.
Oh don't come over to my house now you have been warned.

Your wicked words don't mean a thing not one thing to me.
You keep on banging on the door to catch a glimpse of me don't come around.

Bridge

Well don't come over to my house I soon will be gone.
Oh don't come over to my house you'll never right your wrongs.

Your wicked words wont break my bones mean not a thing to me.
You keep banging on the door to catch a glimpse of me don't come around.

Interesting use of Style here. This song has a certain rawness to it I appreciate. Thanks for sharing!

This reminded me of early Violent Femmes as much as Rockabilly.
Though the femmes used a big acoustic bass guitar rather than a slap stand up.
I really enjoyed the sound and the narrative.
the structure was unusual - but that's cool too.
Cool stuff Rob.

Hi Rob,

A cheerful song (in a way), but I thought you always like people in your house. Did that change? (joke)
But I liked the way you sang it, the doubles, the radio-voice. Nicely done!
I have one tiny point: The instruments were a bit soft in relation to your voice. Especially the piano.
But it could be my ears...

Hans

I love everything about this.

Jaunty style, interesting production, Tom Waits growl... the only thing it's missing is a wah-wah trumpet solo.

Excellent! laugh

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

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing...and rockabilly swings!

There's nothing to not like here.

It's a strong fun production and the processed vocal is so cool!

Rob,

Terrific tune . . . love the vibe, the feel, the whole thing . . . some nice production touches throughout (e.g., the “megaphone-like” backing vocal that chimes in from time to time). Really slick . . . and I love the vocal on this one. Loved it!

Best regards,

Deej

Rob, the swing/rockabilly feel in this really works well! Just a really neat tune with your standard excellent vocals! That guitar solo was a great choice! Thanks, Torrey

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
