Note: A collaborator has been found on this song. Thank you.

Hello,

Here are some lyrics if anyone wants to use them. I imagine this as a Reggae song. Feel free to change or add lyrics (especially the bridge). 50-50 split on copyright. Thanks for any help. If not, thanks for viewing lyrics.

I'm going to jump off the cliffs of Negril
If the fall don't kill me, the drowning will
I'm going to wash up on some distant shore
And I won't have to think of you no more

That's how much I love you
That's how much I love you, baby
That's how much I love you
I love you, oh yeah

I'm going to move myself to Miami Beach
Maybe there I'll be out of reach
But your memory travels like a plane
Finds me anywhere, makes me insane

That's how much I love you
That's how much I love you, baby
That's how much I love you
I love you, oh yeah

(Bridge)
There is nothing more powerful than love
There is nothing more powerful than love

I'm going to lay myself down on the track
Until that Kingtown train come roaring back
I'll just lay here until that day
When that locomotive take me away

That's how much I love you
That's how much I love you, baby
That's how much I love you
I love you, oh yeah

That's how much I love you
That's how much I love you, baby
That's how much I love you
I love you, oh yeah

Dear Mr. Tully...

I would like to compose music for your passionate (and somewhat humorous, perhaps?) lyrics.

I hope to have something for you to listen to soon, this coming week for sure.

Thank you for offering a collaboration to us forum users!

Sincerely,

LOREN (a.k.a. 'bluage')

You know what would be a really cool thing to do?

Well since you asked, I'll tell you.

Write some good lyrics and post them up like you did, BUT...

Instead of asking for one collaborator.... make it open source. Kind of like a talent show. Everyone who wants can grab them , write the song they hear in their head, and post the song back in that SAME THREAD so as not to clog the timeline with a dozen threads of the same song.

We did that very thing several years ago on the old Cakewalk forum. One guy posted the words and I think it was close to a dozen folks grabbed the lyrics and wrote their version of the song. There was literally 12 different versions of the song. None of them were even close to sounding alike and each was very cool in their uniqueness, and variety.

This was my version of that song. https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11962059 I did however rewrite some of the words and got Robby to sing it with me. Him in his studio and me in mine. The fiddle on this is the New England fiddle champion of many years, Scotty.

The same thing was done here a couple of years ago. I believe it was Joanne's lyrics and IIRC she even had a version.

Uncommon RealTracks Instruments for Band-in-a-Box®

Today is Uncommon Instrument Awareness Day.

Examples of "uncommon instruments" include anything from Spoons to the Wheelharp to the Singing Ringing Tree, and more!
(there's probably more instruments out there that we DON'T know than we DO know)

Although our RealTracks collection doesn't include many 'uncommon instruments', we do offer some pretty unique choices!

On top of the usual varieties we offer for Piano, Guitar, Saxophone, Flute, Clarinet, Bass, Tuba, Trumpet, Trombone, and more - our RealTracks library also offers a nice selection of Shakuhachi and Kalimba - there's even a Koto RealTrack included in Set 212!

Kalimba: RealTracks Set 271
Koto: RealTracks Set 212
Shakuhachi: RealTracks Sets 193 & 212

What's the most surprising RealTrack Instrument that you've come across?

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
