Burning - Featuring Di On Vocals

This is the very first song we composed with BIAB back in 2011. We posted it here 8 or 9 years ago. It's a low quality MP3, but we will redo it as a higher quality MP3 and a Wave file if Di regains enough strength to sing again.

This is another song for which we don't have a list of the original RTs. When that computer fried, we had a folder with about 20 songs for which we no longer have a list of the RTs. I wasn't smart enough to also put the files/tracks on an external storage device back then. But it's all BIAB plus Di's vocal. I recall that part of the style title included the name of Sade and it's in the key of Dm.

Di no longer has the strength to sing at this point, so this is that original track with no enhancements or other changes - it's the original track we recorded back in 2011. I was a total rookie with BIAB and Audacity back then. Not sure I'm a whole lot better these days. I thought ya'll might want to hear her sing again, so I went way back and posted this one. Thanks in advance for the listen and comments. Will reply in kind as I can.

Di sends her love and best wishes to everyone. Hope you enjoy the song!


BURNING
© 2011 Alan D. David, BMI / Diana Bowers, BMI

(v1)
When you look at me, the way you often do
I know what you’re saying, I read your silent cue
I know you want me Baby, the way I’m wanting you
Come to me Darling, we’ll make those thoughts come true

(v2)
Your fingers touch me, my passion overflows
I’m burning with desire, as you remove my clothes
There’s no way to tell you, ‘bout the fire inside of me
As we hold each other and make love so tenderly

CHORUS
I’m burning through and through
I call your name in whisper, as I’m making love to you
The flames fuel my passion, I’m burning inside
Oh, I’m burning hot for you

Instrumental Break

(v3)
Embers still glowing, from the love we just made
The flames’ steady flicker, refuses to fade
Then you look at me that way, and I need you once again
Come love me Darling, don’t ever let it end

REPEAT CHORUS

Yeah!!

Great song, Alan, and man! She can sing.

Only complaint was it was too short smile

I would love to hear more of these older songs and I'm sure I'm not alone in that.

All the best to the both of you.

Super. I recall the first time I heard one of your originals and her vocals... wow ...

The wow factor is there from start to finish. Great write, arrangement, performance and production.

I don't remember hearing it before; so thanks for the repost!

I do think it would be cool if you revisit it. This song has such a cool feel to it. It feels like it could be a Sade (Adu) song. The vibe is working because you know how to put it all together.

So yeah...I really like it! smile

Burning, indeed! Sexy and full of passion - such a terrific vocal!

I remember this - it is easy to recall the distinctive posts through the years - and this is definitely one of those!

Say what you will about being a "BIAB rookie" at the time... this is well done in all respects. The BAND selection and the mix are just what they need to be.

And Di sounds awesome!

Y'all stay safe...

Dear Ms. Di & Alan...

Remembering the way I was raised and morally counseled by my parents and elder relatives, if I had somehow been lucky enough (or clever enough) to cop a listen to your song, Burning, the next day I would have rallied my schoolmates around me on the playground and whispered to them in a conspiratorial way, "Hey, ya'll, last night I heard this record and it was people on it talkin' about doin' the nasty, hee-hee-hee !!!" laugh blush smile

OOO-ooo-WEEE, you two, that was hot, hot, HOT!!! 'Scuse me while I open-up some windows in here, wipe that steam off the panes...

...Okay, I'm back. Now, what I wanna know is, why in the world would you post a song like that on this User's Forum when you know I'm sittin' here all by my d**m self sheltering-in-place with NO FEMALE by my side, huh??? Huh??? It's cruel and unusual punishment, and because you went on ahead and done it, you're not my friends anymore mad.

Seriously, though, with this one, folks, you know you have raised the temperature on this forum by lusciously lusty degrees, don't you??? Ms. Di, you sing like your soul has taken control over you and you're helpless to do anything about it. Unforgettable. Alan, whatever BIAB tracks you used, you selected and arranged them like a pro. It's an album-worthy track, for sure.

Guess I can close those windows, now, as it's gettin' a little chilly in here smile ...

LOREN

WHAT A TREAT!!!!

We also came on board in 2011 but didn't post until 2012 so this is
likely our first time hearing this one.

There couldn't have been a better hook for this very cool
and sophisticated vocal! Wow.

As floyd said, "Say what you will about being a "BIAB rookie"
at the time... this is well done in all respects. The BAND selection
and the mix are just what they need to be." Yep!

Most enjoyable!

And our very, very best wishes to both of you!

J&B

They're all new to me, so I got no problem reposting. Great song and vocals, love that vibrato, what a great effect. Unique sound. Only hitch, it was short. Hey, that's what the repeat button is for. Thanks for sharing again, esp. us newer guys who didn't hear it the first time around. Great work!!

Hello HTL ...

Thanks for the time to listen and comment so nicely! Actually, Sade's song "Smooth Operator" influenced the concept of this song. Redoing it depends on Di's health. We hope that happens, though! Many thanks and be safe ...

Hi Floyd ...

Can't begin to tell you how much you give us encouragement and happiness with your always kind words about our songs. Means a lot .. seriously.

And yes, we had BIAB 2011 for less than a week when we put this together. And I'd never heard of Audacity until a very short time before that.

We particularly appreciated the "distinctive" comment. That put a smile on both our faces. Many thanks.

Take care and be safe ...

Alan

This is a dark-sounding but stunning melody! Well done!!! Your wife has a voice, for me, that combines the best of Tina Turner and Barbra Streisand. Howsoever that may be, it's a beautiful, sizzling song ... I, like some above, can't believe it was your very first with BIAB - wow. Bravi!!! and wishing you both good health!!!

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:

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.
