I've been writing songs for over 40 years now and this is a simple one from the late 1970's...I always wanted to update it so thanks to BiaB I found the right instrumentation...this ia hybrid recording of a mix of mandolins and acoustic guitar from BiaB with a 12 string, bass and rhythm from my Yamaha Genos keyboard...it is simple folk Gospel...hope you enjoy this old song with a new hybrid recording...Dan

Hello, 'firesong'...

It's good to be reminded of Jesus' persistent, unwavering message to us: the healing, forgiving and redemptive power of L-O-V-E. It cannot be repeated too much.

Through your committed, passionate and powerful singing, the meaning of the deeply spiritual lyrics was simply and persuasively revealed. The Real Tracks you chose 'escorted' the message like a gentle wind pushing a boat down a quiet stream.

Your song made me feel as though I was being given a glimpse of the 'better world' beyond this one. Thank you for it.

Sincerely,

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

Loren...thank you for your gracious comments...every gospel writer wishes their song could and would have that effect on the listener...my hope has always been not to be the best writer, singer or musician (of which I am not) but to be an anointed vessel from which He communicates His L-O-V-E...thanks again and blessings...Dan

Great message, perfect medium. Superb vocals and production. Only thing you need to change is "Pilot's" to "Pilate's."

You have a rich and impressive voice that's well recorded but has a few issues with hwat ever processing you're using on it.
Low notes seem to push to the left side - though it may be a second vocal - but when it happens in the 1st verse the bottom end seems to drop away from the centre. Quite a bit of sibilant stuff happening too.
Great voice.

Nice work. Good use of BIAB. Wonderful vocals. Like Dylan, I get my religion through the songs and I got the message here.

Get Inspired with the Band-in-a-Box® Title Generator!

There can be many triggers that could inspire you to write a song... but what if you're wanting to write a song, and are having trouble finding the inspiration you need?

Jump start your creativity using the Title Generator feature in Band-in-a-Box®.

I love this feature - it delivers some beautiful results!

To access this feature:

Mac: select Edit | Chords | Auto-Generate Song Title menu command (control+shift+S). The song title will appear in the Title window! Repeat the Auto-Generate Song Title command until the program comes up with a suitable title for your song. Band-in-a-Box® will keep generating new titles for as long as it takes to get the right one.

Windows: click on the "Generate Title" button within the main screen of the program and you can choose to "auto-generate" a song title which will appear right in the Title field of your song, or for a more varied selection choose to "generate multiple titles" and you'll be taken to the Title Generator window, which can generate a list of 50 song titles for you!

I've just done this, and won't bother list all 50 here - but the "top 10" I've chosen from my generated list are:
Eloquent Laugh
Statuesque Luck
Considering a Rainbow
Brief Fling, Acknowledged
Something for a Sandpiper
Happy Runaround
Cheatin' Skies
Then Came a Rose
The Mention of My Love
Eternal Raincheck

Give it a try!

The resource for this feature can also be edited, allowing you to customize the results.
(to do this, review the file TITL1.TXT within the BB Data folder.)
