Hi Greg,

Wow! This is such wonderful listening.

I love everything about it. Your singing is superb. It carried me along on a journey of eidetic imagery created by the intertwining effect of your relaxed, carefree melody and hypnotic, palm-trees-swaying accompaniment.

To my ears, this is inspired music creation in every way.

All the best,
Noel

Greg ...

Your songs always move me ... move to laugh, move me to cry, move me to realize the talent I'm listening to is some of the best in world .... and I'm among the privileged few who see/hear it before the rest of the world does. What an honor!

You have more talent in one nose hair than many of the pop artists of the day have in their luggage. This is simply gorgeous! I'm awe-stricken.

wishing you the very best ...

Alan

Hi Greg, that really is a sweet song. I enjoyed listening, although the songmarker said Jazz.
It wasn't. It is a song that fits more categories. And you can (still) sing very high and pure. Love that.
I can only agree with the way Noel said it.

Nice day,
Hans

Greg,

Love this! To me, it has that mid 70s Jack Jones feel and vibe...

Excellent song, vocal and mix.

Greg,

Romantic? - yes! Goofy? - Not Even Close. Talent, skill and craft are all required to write really good "simple 'silly' love songs" - and you've got it in spades. The lyrics here are so smooth and "fall on the ear" so well one doesn't even think about the song being "written" - it just IS. Talent, skill, craft.

The production is just as smooth and subtle as the song.

The vocals are typical Greg-Johnson-to-die-for vocals.

And all mixed perfectly.

As good as it gets (which is becoming a standard response to your song posts).

A truly great listen.

Greg,

Oh, boy, your vocal here is so soft and sweet—magnetic. And the production is perfect. Got nothing else to offer beyond my utmost admiration. Outstanding!

All the best,

I've become a huge fan, Summer Comes Along might be my fave track on the showcase. Now this is right up there with it. I saw Franks in '76, so close I could reach out and touch him. He had the tightest band I ever heard. No critiques, just listening in awe here.

I don't know Michael Franks, which clearly is my loss. I love, love, love this song. Wonderful progression and melody full of sweet turns. Such a great simple lyric so well phrased and sung. There's nothing like a love song to get me "into" the song. And this one is a rare beauty. The band is excellent in this arrangement as well. Just great.

Hi Greg,

By the second bar I had a huge smile on my face.
I've listened twice now and I can't stop smiling - it just does that for me.

I think I've loved everything I've heard from you and this is no exception.
Everything about it is just right. Gosh, I wish I could sing half as well as that.

Lovely chord progression, terrific choice of instruments and a classic mix.

Brilliant.

ROG.

Lovely song, pretty melody and as anticipated a superb vocal.

Really nice work.

Sounds great over all.


Thanks Ray! The person who mixed it is far better than I am....maybe a problem with the way I recorded it. Take care. Greg

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
