This is one that when I heard this style, I knew I had to write a song that would fit it.

Apostolic Holy Ghost Revival State Of Mind

Woke up this morning with heaven on my mind,
needless to say I was feeling mighty fine.
The sun was shining and the birds would sing,
then at twelve noon I heard some church bells ring,
I've got that apostolic holy ghost revival state of mind.

Chourus:

I've got that apostolic holy ghost revival state of mind,
a feeling that you can't explain it's one of a kind.
People at the altar, hands raised in the air,
shoutin and praisin like they don't have a care.
I've got that apostolic holy ghost revival state of mind.

Satan can't stand it cause he knows who's gonna win,
he know he's lost a soul when they turn from sing.
He's starts to tremble he starts to shake,
we've got the devil in a bind.
I've got that apostolic holy ghost revival state of mind.

Repeat Chorus:

Yes, but what's the style? whistle

Fun listen - the title's fun to say, and fits the style like a glove.

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

Nicely done Ronnie smile You definitely have a distinct sound, and I really enjoy your consistent throwbacks to that old school country sound. Very, very catchy and it almost has a nostalgic quality to it.

Thanks for sharing!

I grew up old school country, and the music that I hear on our local "Country" station, almost sounds like rock!!

You used the classic imagery here really effectively, and I think this sounded like a pretty great tune overall. I especially liked the lines:

"The sun was shining and the birds would sing,
then at twelve noon I heard some church bells ring".

Thanks for sharing!

Has a nice early rock feel to it.
Your vocal suits the style really well.
You do need to address the vocal levels in several spots - go get LOUD particularly in the chorus.

Love it Ronnie. The very first thing I heard was the vocals which are right out front where they belong. So many user songs bury the vocals. Yes, the vocal did get a little hot in spots but I would rather have that than having to strain to hear them. Good job

I've learned the hard way, if they can't hear the lyrics, they're losing the concept and reason for the song!!

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!
