Hi forum friends. Been listening to a lot of great music on here lately! This is another Michael Franks style attempt at a romantic tune. I love Latin music! I was pretty blown away how well Brent's solo fit the tune.......I slipped him a few extra bucks! Anyway, I would love to hear what you think! Take care. Greg

WHEN SHE TALKS TO ME

When she talks to me, I'm intoxicated by the sound
And suddenly, there's no one else around
I drift off in a pleasant daze
To swaying palms and blue sky bays
I don't know what to say
When she talks to me

When I see her smile, and hear the music of her voice
(She has no intention to beguile; she doesn't have a choice)
I'm a silent fool, just mesmerized
As I float inside her warm brown eyes
I start to fantasize
When I see her smile

It's a mystery
Is it magic, is it alchemy?
It's like a chemical reaction in my soul
Wires cross and currents flow
I'm dizzy cause she moves me so
I spin out of control
When she talks to me

When she talks to me...

(She has no intention to beguile; she doesn't have a choice) Oh yeah.

Just stunningly beautiful how that Latin rhythm, your fragile yet powerful vocal range, melody, lyric and perfect phrasing come together to express love. Loved it.

Really, really nice - vocals, instrumentation, lyrics, mix...

All top notch.

But especially the vocals. You can really sing! laugh


My only nit is the flute solo at the end - it sounds "fake", mostly because it lacks vibrato.

If you're interested, PM me and I'll be happy to render you some of my VSTi flutes so you can complain about my choice in flutes. grin (My actual flute playing isn't anything to write home about).

Anyway, love this song! laugh

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

Wonderful!

I love latin music too, and man, you just nailed the vibe perfectly with this one, Greg!

Love the melody and of course the vocal, and you are right, that guitar solo is perfect.

Enjoyed!

Hi Greg,

What a really wonderful listen. You sure have the knack for fine songwriting and equally fine song-presenting! It's as it your gently soothing vocals caress the listener's emotions and imagination and they fit hand-in-glove with this Latin-styled backing. I don't think you could have chosen a better instrumental ensemble.

From the first note to the last, I found this enchanting, mesmerising and terrific listening.

All the best,
Noel

Greg,

ZOWIE!

I don't know what to say when you "talk" to me! Completely blown away.

GORGEOUS songwriting.
GORGEOUS production.
GORGEOUS vocal.

The nylon guitar solo is extraordinary! Sounds like you had someone play specifically for this.

A beautiful mix.

One of your best. And THAT is saying something!! (ALL you songs are excellent).

YOU should be a star, dude.

Nicely done! The Latin touch was incredible, and your vocals and the instruments are both stunning. It's an absolutely beautiful tune, and a fine example of quality songwriting. It is tender, romantic, and gorgeously textures.

You should be really proud of this one - thanks for sharing smile


Cheers,

There are a good number of fine vocalists on this board, but your voice is my favorite. Excellent lyrics. I teach my students the importance of good beginnings (essays and stories). The same holds true for songs. What an engaging opening lyric:

When she talks to me
I'm intoxicated by the sound
And suddenly,
there's no one else around

Good stuff!

Hello Greg,

this is just wonderful - you're creating such a great mood.

The composition and the arrangement are already top-notch, but your vocals hit the ball over the fence - EXCELLENT !!!!

Take care,

Stefan

Greg,
Stellar vocals that show a great feel for the rhythm of your well written, seductive song.
Amazing guitar track,as you say.I tend to agree a more organic sounding flute would be nice, but that`s very minor- you are into a great groove with this style of music!

Well it's early and on the first page but all the superlatives have already been grabbed. Seriously.

Mr.Johnson has exited the stage now who the heck wants to follow that?

Take everything members said above, squeeze it all into a ball and that'll be our thoughts.

OK, we'll add a word SOPHISTICATED.

Wonderful!

I'd love to stream your new album........

Truly lovely.

Very cool tune Greg. Loved the way you mixed the vocal on this song. Loved the backtrack and choice instruments. This song really showed off your range. Such a cool vocal. Well done Greg.

The superb chording and beautiful melody work amazingly well together.
Flute melody on the background is nice addition. Lyrics are sweetly romantic, like a perfect movie experience. And your voice is the final strawberry icing on the cake. I would like to hear a whole album full of these treats smile

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.
