I just learned one of my tunes was included in a major movie released late last year. It not only made the film soundtrack but was actually mentioned by name and included in the script and integrated into a scene.


That's good but here's the back story.


1971 wrote the song

1975 recorded and released on Making Plans Album by Angel Oak

1975-76 sold a few hundred copies

2016 after many years of nothing, sold a song from the album to a Record label for inclusion in an audio documentary.
The record label have the all rights to the song for seven years. Received a nice advance and small quarterly receipts since 2016.


2019 July, received a royalty/license quarterly payment 11 times greater than all the other previous payments...
Reviewed the statement and see where the record label has licensed the song to a movie.


Looked up the movie. Sept 2018 release and has grossed nearly 18 million so far. Good rating on Rotten Tomatoes and positive reviews including one by Roger Ebert. Stars Jack Kilmer, son of actor Val Kilmer (Batman and Top Gun, and more); Several other name actors.

Streamed the movie and heard the song at about the 25:40 mark, skipped to the end and there's the name of the song, band name and my name as writer in the closing credits. The artist whose name and song appears just above mine is Sammy Hagar. Pretty stoked all afternoon.


Checked the YouTube Videos: I Saw Her Cry - Angel Oak (this one doesn't load properly for me.)

Radio Label Post: I Saw Her Cry_Angel Oak on Wayfaring Strangers

It has 9.8 thousand views whereas the last time I checked about a year ago, it had less than one thousand. The video post by the record label has 3,000 plus views. It has 452 likes on one post and 71 on the other. Traffic is being driven by the movie.


Being pretty stoked continued.

Streamed the movie again to watch with my wife. I let it play through and did not skip when it got to the scene where the song is played in the film score. Was very surprised to hear the song title, artist and release date of the song is in the scene script and integral to the scene. Really stoked after seeing and hearing that scene.


So... 49 years after writing the song; 44 years after recording and releasing the song, its being heard around the world.


It's never too late to give up. I would never imagined such a scenario.


The movie is "Summer 03" and is R rated due to some very explicit language. It's a teenage movie but certainly not for the kiddies...

Great story, congrats!

Very good song too. The first link didn't work for me, only played the first few seconds. No problems playing the second link though.

Charlie, that is great news!

I'm so glad that you are getting credit for your song.

You should be very proud.

I've heard this same story from other writers. Never discount or pull a song out of a publisher/library... you never know. Another writer said the same thing.... it had been 7 plus years and he had forgotten about the song. A large check came in and it turned out to be that forgotten song got a placement into a commercial with heavy national rotation.

Charlie.... cool song and congrats on the placement. Love those unexpected checks. They're always a pleasant surprise.

A lot of us are eagerly anticipating your success story, Floyd. If anybody here has put in the work to create a collection of original songs that are just SCREAMING to be used commercially, it's you. I hope this story encourages anybody out there who has ever felt like giving up. I hope all of you song writers get your day in the sun (and the royalty checks to go with it)

Best of luck to each and every song writer in the forum.

It's pretty neat to be able to see my younger brother's name during pop up on the big screen.

I've always heard good things come to those who wait. This proves it.

Congratulations Charlie!

Band-in-a-Box® Features List!

Every version release of Band-in-a-Box® adds loads of new features and enhancements to the program, which we're sure can sometimes get "lost" in your knowledge of the program's capabilities.

Looking to learn about new features with a specific release? It's actually really easy to locate this information!

Learn tips on the new version (2019) by visiting Help | Tip of the Day and placing a check mark next to "Only Show Tips for Version 2019" (you'll also need to select "Show Tips at Startup", if it's not already).

Access the new features list for older versions in the Help Index of the program - from the left-menu, choose Contents | Features and a list of New Features will show - all the way back to Version 7!

#FeatureFriday

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® Goes to NAMM

As we get ready to head to Summer NAMM this year, we're remembering our time their last year - we had so many visitors stop by our booth!

Click here to take a peak!

Special thanks to Mike and all the RealTracks Artists and PG Endorsers who stopped by. Stay tuned for our Booth Visitors and other happenings from Summer NAMM on July 18-20, 2019! If you find yourself at the event, come say "Hi!" to us at booth 234.

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows StylePicker Feature - Finding RealTracks & MIDI SuperTracks

Did you know... Within Band-in-a-Box®, quickly find styles that use RealTracks (or MIDI SuperTracks!) in a certain range by pressing the [Other] filter button in the StylePicker window and select "Styles that contain RealTracks or MIDI SuperTracks in a number range".

#WisdomWednesday

Band-in-a-Box® Tip of the Day!

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® will show you some helpful "Tips" when you start the program? What a great way for new program users to learn all the features of the program! Want to know Tips on just the latest version? This feature can be adjusted to just show the Tips for that too.

Maybe you're a long-time user of the program, and have this feature turned off? To access Tip of the Day (450+ available!), head to Help | Tip of the Day. Your Tip will appear right away - and you'll have the option of reading the Next Tip if you wanted too! Within this window is where you would also choose to "Show Tips at Startup" (if this is unchecked, you won't see them), or "Only Show Tips for Version 2019".

Here's a few Tips the program informed me of the last time I opened Band-in-a-Box®:

In the Piano Roll window, the 'Ghost Note' function allows you to view a single-channel, and see notes on all other channels display in light grey. This is useful when working with multi-channel tracks.

Want a bigger guitar display? Drag the bottom end of the Guitar Window to change its size, or press the SETTINGS button to set a custom size.

The Printout can use left and right MARGINS. This is useful to make printouts for small paper size or 3 hole paper that requires margins.

Edit | Nudge Chords/Melody. Let's say that you have entered a complete song chord progression, and you then realize that all of the chords starting at bar 23 are 1 beat to late. You can use this feature to slide your chords over by 1 beat.
