Amazing!

I recently discovered that earlier this year, a TV station in Turkey used my song "Dare To Dream The Impossible". This is the first time ever that I've made some royalties from a song written, arranged, performed and produced entirely by me.

In all honesty, I'm blown away by the fact that I can write a song here in Australia, it is heard by someone in Turkey and they like it enough to attach it to something on TV, and my copyright registration directs them back to me....

It seems like it's true... IMPOSSIBLE = I'M POSSIBLE

After listening to "Dare To Dream" again, I can hear just how far my production and singing skills have come in 6 years. Looks like it's time to revisit this one and apply a bit of present day pizzazz to it!

Anyway....At the moment I feel like celebrating so here is the song, warts and all. I hope it inspires someone and encourages songwriters to appreciate what PG Music, Band In A Box and the Users Showcase forum make possible for all of us. I'm so thankful and I feel so lucky that I discovered them.

AUDIO (and Lead-Sheet): https://soundcloud.com/noel-adams/dare-to-dream-the-impossible

I'll get around to bringing it up-to-date sometime in the future. In the meantime, I hope you are able to enjoy it for what it is.

Regards,
Noel

Great to hear this again, Noel.

Congratulations on the placement!

It is inevitable that Noel-dreaming-the-impossible would turn it into the possible.

Really fine, uplifting piece. The band and singer sound good to me, but it's inspiring that you are yet committed to honing and not resting on $4.00 worth of laurels.

Thanks, floyd! I appreciate that you had time for a re-listen. This song was assembled using the Ultrapak and it sounds pretty good!

All the best,
Noel

Well done Noel.
Money sin't validation or justification but it can be a nice tip of the hat.
COOL song - no shock it was picked up.

Very cool Noel a!

I think on one of the major streaming platforms your would have to get thousands of streams to earn that amount.
It's amazing somebody didn't just rip it off. Good for you!

So what do we think about it? How about what we said six years ago in the original post:

"To quote Janice "Great lyrics and reminds me of early Beatles." We just streamed it from phone to our living room sound system. Great sound all the way around. Will watch the video when we gravitate to the computer room, i.e., after more coffee. Another good one for sure!!"

Nice

Yes, my sentiments exactly. I'm really happy to hear that they were able to collect on their royalties, especially considering the type of digital age we live in where most people just take what they want and don't ask any questions about who they might be negatively impacting by doing so when it comes to music.

Hi Deryk,

Thanks for dropping by. This was the UltraPlusPak (2013) and even listening to this song after using the Audiophile version of BIAB for a few years, the instruments still sound terrific. BIAB is such a great songwriting tool! I couldn't have written all the songs I have without it.

All the best,
Noel

Hi Ember,

Thank you!!! I'm over the moon with actually getting some royalties. How good is that! The amount is irrelevant. It's just good to know that someone liked my music enough to pay for it.

I appreciate the visit smile

Hi Noel,

Now you see? Nothing is impossible. If even Erdogan is at your feet. That was realy an impossible thought, but look, you did it.
And I know why... It's a good song, strongly performanced, with good vocals and nice -kind of- sweet lyrics (if you know what I mean).
Very well done!

Hans

Thanks, Josie! You hit the nail on the head... that 'serendipity' factor is the big one!

Even if no-one else ever expresses interest in one of my songs again, I have this little bit of a milestone to bring a few smiles!

I appreciate that you found time to have a listen.

All the best,
Noel

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.
