Hi all,
For this french song, Patrick Fournerat sings and whistles. the lyrics have been written by him.

https://soundcloud.com/christian-devienne/montreal

Here's an approximate translation :

I will come back to Montreal
In Charlebois’s country
And climb on Mount Royal
The feeling of returning home

I had fantastic friends
Loving life and music

It was really cosmopolitan
Tolerant and friendly

I listened to Beau Dommage
Félix Leclerc and Gilles Vigneault
And inherited Harmonium
The song found its cradle

Thank you my fantastic friends
Long live life and music

Christian & Patrick,

A very nice song. Good tracks, nice vocal. Good mix.

"It was really cosmopolitan
Tolerant and friendly"

True... I lived in Montreal for a couple of years...

Enjoyed the journey back...

Nicely done - it flows delightfully well, and the mix is really nice as Floyd said. It's nice to see Canada get some love here in the forums too - never been myself, but Montreal's been on my to-go-to list for a while now.

Thanks for sharing smile

Loved the organ and brushes, worked well with the whole mix.

I enjoyed the vocals and lyric story as well.

Nice job!

Chris/Patrick,
I don't speak French but I could listen to it being spoken or, even better, sung all day. I love the vocals on this (thanks also for the translation).
Somehow this lovely French Canadian song works perfectly with the bossa nova treatment. The organ is a nice touch too.
But one of the stars of this piece is Patrick's whistling.

BIAB wishlist: what about a whistling RealTrack???

This songs moves along very smoothly. I like it very much. Any chance I could include it in my next Bastille Day concert? Any chance I could see the original lyrics?

The song has a really lovely flow to it. I've never had the opportunity to go to Montreal when I lived closer to Quebec, but hope to still get the chance to some day!

Thanks for sharing.

Christian,

Cool jazzy number . . . I’m not typically a fan of jazz, but this is wonderfully executed. And again you’ve picked a great vocalist (and whistler) for this one. Nice work!

Regards,

Deej

Hi Christian,

there are some folks here on the forum about which I have my doubts that they ever sleep or eat - you're definitely one of them as you're coming up with so many songs.

This one's another nice tune, very well (!) arraged and appealingly sung by Patrick. Another good job, Christan.

Take care,

Stefan

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
