Hello forum friends. Been getting here more often lately and hearing a ton of great songs!! I have always been a big fan of Brian Wilson (and Dani, our forum's BW). This song seemed to go that direction melodically so I wrote it in that 60's style I'm so fond of.....still my favorite era. Hope you enjoy! Love "hearing" your comments! Take care. Greg
You're that girl that I can't resist Sometimes I wonder but you insist That your hear belongs to me That I hold that magic key
You hold me close when the cold wind blows You hold my hand through the Winter snows And your kisses keep me warm As we shelter from the storm
But then Summer comes along And you hear your favorite songs I see the sun reflecting in your eyes And you see those other guys And it's not completely clear If it will be me that's holding here When Summer's gone When Summer's gone away
I'm the guy who's been here with you When those dark clouds would make you blue When the season brings you down Oh, you know I'll be around
I'll stay with you through the darkest night And foolishly will believe in spite Of everything you do And you'll say you love me too
Greg, you never disappoint! What a great song and performance! This song will touch the heart of any listener who really listens! You touch on so many tender moments of years ago! Beautiful work Greg! Thanks, Torrey

Greg, any appreciation of Big Brian is worth tuning into. I'm extra pleased I did because the chorus is purely Sunshine. You did a fabulous job with the harmonies and the arrangement. SsssWonderful. Simply wonderful.
I wrote a tribute to BW a few years back. I recorded, initially, to tape and mixed in mono. I had to remix to stereo becasue a whole bundle of people got a little upset about the idea of me doing mono. WEIRD eh? The song referred to hearing in mono but taht went over their heads. Well, that was a different forum and a yonk ago. Here's my BW track though - in stereo sadly...

The level of songs on this forum is rising higher and higher all the time. This is a perfect example, maybe the best ever, should be part of BIAB marketing campaign. Excellently produced summer tune with amazing vocals, so clean on the high register... and the backing vocals are so carefully made. Mix and arrangement are very radio friendly stuff. The melody and lyrics are pure 60's magic.
Greg, Oh those are some sweet harmonies! The melody and sunshiny message are pitch perfect for the style- very good! Just had a thought/wish... to hear Greg and Dani singing up in the stratosphere together.
A nice well-done tribute... One you should be proud of... The verses seem to have a Burt Bacharach influence... And when the chorus kicks in... I'm hearing the Brian Wilson/Dani influence... You done a great job on this one... I enjoyed it!

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:
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Give it a try!
The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
