Hi All,

This is called Albuquerque.

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I left my home in Woodstock
In the second part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

Woke up in Albuquerque in the rain
Running horses and falling manes

I walked to Albuquerque
It was midnight in my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I traced my steps this morning
In the third part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

Woke up in Albuquerque in the rain
Running horses and falling manes

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream
Following the path you left me
Following the path you left me

I walked to Albuquerque
In the first part of my dream

Bob,

A very dream-like write. Which makes sense - it's a dream song!

The baritone guitar suits the subject matter, too.

This could easily be in the background of any number of current shows on Netflix or Amazon. (OA would be a good one for it...)

Good mix (as always).

Poetic and non-specific, very evocative.

I liked the subtle build as you brought in the instruments.

Nicely done, as usual.

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

I recall Neil Young doing a song called Albuquerque. In fact I could hear him covering your version.
Nice relaxed mood and immediately familiar. Good choice of instruments and nicely performed.
Very enjoyable.

Peter

Bob,
I read the lyrics, listened to the tune and had very particular thought in mind to my response, but as soon as I scrolled to the first reply, FJ's post caught my eyes. He wrote exactly what I was feeling smile This was wayyy strange.

A very calming, dream like song indeed. Nicely put together and performed. Loved the tremolo guitar choice.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

Bob,

Your vocal carries the feeling. A dream that gets to you is powerful song inspiration!
I like the repetition in the lyrics and of course that tremolo guitar.
I also hear a little Neil Young in this... and also the kind of song Emmylou Harris chose for Wrecking Ball.


Robert

I always like it when you use that tremolo guitar, it is a good fit for your sound I think.

Great as always, Bob, I'm a fan!

Another cool track Bob!! Very textural. Rolls along so nicely with that Brent baritone guitar feeding the rhythm as it goes. Nicely done!! Take care. Greg

Nice work on this smile Love the imagery in the vocals, your rustic delivery adds a lot of merit as well. I found it fit perfect with the instrumentation, and it was nicely catchy too.

Thanks for sharing!

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.
