I am trying to write a few songs for 50 90 this year. I know I am not getting to gt anywhere close to 50 but, hey, even one or two is better than none!

These lovely lyrics were written by Cindy Prince. The inspiration for the melody came from Kate Rusby.

https://soundcloud.com/joannecoopersa/i-am-thinking-of-you-with-cindy-prince

The style used was BABBLE (Babbling Slow Americana)
RealTracks in style: 2877:Bass, Acoustic, AmericanaSlow16thsByron Ev16 060
RealTracks in style: 2879:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm AmericanaSparseSlow16thsColin Ev16 060
RealTracks in style: 2878:Guitar, Electric, Rhythm AmericanaSlow16thsBrent Ev16 060
RealTracks in style: 3074:Mandolin, Rhythm AmericanaSlow16thsAndy Ev16 060
RealDrums [in style:AmericanaRoots16th^01-a:Toms, b:Snare

I added a midi flute of the melody using Dimension Pro
Lyrics:
Thinking of You
© 2019 Cindy Prince

When the skies are cloudy
When the skies are blue
When there's only the moon shining
I am thinking of you

When the snow is falling
When the sun shines bright
When the tiny green leaves are growing
Thinking of you feels right

Chorus
When I blink
I think of you
When I shave
Yes, that too
When I talk
When I walk
Every day anew
I am thinking of you

When the rain is pouring
When the leaves start to fall
When a strong wind is blowing
Thinking of you is my all

Repeat chorus

Hi Joanne,

This is a very lovely song with a subtle, but very nice harmony.
The instruments are nicely chosen. They fit in very well. At first glance (hearing) I had some doubts with the Americana percussion, but that vanished when listening again.

Greetings,
Hans

A pleasant song, Joanne. Nice job on the flute part.

(Not sure why, but the main vocal seems to "lean a bit left" in my speakers. Might just be perception.) Good mix.

We've used those drums also and really like them.

The flute was a nice addition.

Lovely harmony blend.

Well done Joanne!

Joanne,
Very pretty melody (Kate Rusby is a great inspiration!). Good uplifting lyrics and your shining vocals...a good arrangement too with that damped sound of the drums underneath.
Such enjoyable music.

Robert

Enjoyable Listen. Flute has such a unique sound - to me a good addition when you want something slightly different without being jarring.

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:
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.
