I guess you could call this a parody. I made it just for fun. Nothing in the video or song is meant to represent current world conditions. It's just meant to get your ya-yas out ; )

*******************

Got a place in the Hamptons, a place in BelAir, and a jet that takes me to and fro,
Just call me on my private line if you ever want to go,
I got a Rothschild connection from my European mum, and a horse in the Derby each year,
The fellas from Wharton like to meet up and talk about which way the country will veer,

I love it when you treat me, baby, so bad,
Love it when you treat me baby, so bad,
Love it when you treat me baby, so baaaaaaaaad.

Got a yacht in Montauk, sits in the dock, you know I never gave it a whirl,
Carly wrote that song about me, ya know she's a real sweet girl,
Have a lotta fun with my cars and my guns, bought em all on a whim,
American Picker wants to film my stuff, I won't ever let them in

Repeat chorus

TM,

A fun rocker. Well penned. Good BAND.

Love the yacht/Montauk/dock grouping.

In fact this whole verse is nice:

"Got a yacht in Montauk, sits in the dock, you know I never gave it a whirl,
Carly wrote that song about me, ya know she's a real sweet girl,
Have a lotta fun with my cars and my guns, bought em all on a whim,
American Picker wants to film my stuff, I won't ever let them in"

The vocal is fairly dry for the style. More reverb and some delay would get it into the mix a bit more.

Enjoyed the listen.

Thanks, Floyd, I made the changes you suggested, hope I didn't overdo it. I've been putting reverb on the master buss for simplicity's sake, is that a mistake? The first mix of this didn't have a lot of reverb because I was guessing the Stones did not use a lot on their stuff. I'll have to go back and listen, been decades since I listened to them. Anyway, thanks, Floyd, for the help with this one. : )

Hey TM ...

A nice little rocker!

I like the many internal rhymes in the lyric. That's real cool in my book! Great lyric. The overall vibe of the song, further enhanced by the sax lead, gave me somewhat of a Huey Lewis thought. I do agree with Floyd about adding a bit more reverb on the vocal.

But yeah ... super cool tune! Loved it! Wishing you the best. Be safe ...

Alan

The vocal is dry but be careful as there're some essing & plosive hot spots that reverb will accentuate.
If you exported the BIAB track direct from the prog WITH the default reverb on them you'll usually need to add some to the vocal as well to sit it in. A touch on the stereo bus helps the glue but would emphasize the lack on vocals.
Fun song.

This is hilarious, the satirical lyrics and your "twisted" vocals create an enjoyable combination of rocking joy. I can't read is there a lyrical reference to Rolling Stones, but the band surely sounds like a part of the story and it makes me smile to think about seeing Mick Jagger to sing that chorus smile

Fun song.


Ray's comment is a good one. A little reverb on the master bus can help glue things together (but don't over-do it). But it won't address the need for what is required for the vocal to "sit in the mix" - it needs to be reverb and delay applied to the vocal itself (and, again... don't over-do that..it doesn't need to be a lot).

I did enjoy listening to the song again...

Good fun!
A sharp write ( a few cultural references this Canuk didn`t quite get ) with those excellent rhymes Floyd mentioned.
Very Rolling Stones as you say and the vocal sounds ok to me...its the kind of song I wouldn`t attempt, but there are some good tips above on the processing.

Good old rock n roll with a little humor stuck in. WOW this is so good, kinda like ZZtop and Dylan sings a song written by Weird Al.

Excellent job on this one.

Band-in-a-Box® - What People Are Saying...

Wow, check out the latest feedback from Band-in-a-Box® users!

"I have one song I've been torturing over to get the sound right for quite some time and I merely keyed in the chords and what BB generated is awesome. Just what I hoped that song would sound like. What had taken me months to get right (and couldn't), the program could do in about an hour - AMAZING!"

"Great Ear Training Exercises! And I love that that you can set the tempo to whatever you choose. It's great for learning a tune!"

"A very good and easy to use musical program!"

"It's amazingly easy to use! Write a song? No problem! Add background sound track to a video? No problem! Put notes on a staff and have BB make up a chord progression and tell what key you are in? No problem! Start with a chord progression and have BB make a melody line? No problem!"

"Still the best practice tool I have found, great for running lines, improvising over and really helpful for working on song writing ideas as well! Good for beginners, and the more musical skill and knowledge you have the more you will get out of the software."

"I create demo songs with Band-in-a-Box, it helps me to get my ideas across to my engineer!"

"Been using Band-in-a-Box for years. Outstanding product from a great company!"

"It's like buying a Musical History Jukebox. It comes with probably 3000 styles and is like hiring session musicians to play rhythm with you, they even have soloists! It introduces you to so many types of rhythms that you other wise would know nothing about. "

"Paul McCartney said you gotta have a great band behind you. Well, Band-in-a-Box is my band."

"It's as easy as typing in the chords, choosing your style, instruments, etc., and off you go! Learning the tune? You can slow it down while you work on it then speed it up. My favorite analogy is a good chess program, which will play at your speed and level and is eternally patient!"

"I love my Band in a box, it does so much! Besides all the RealTracks and song ideas, it's a great tool to stay sharp with your licks. Social distancing got you down? Can't jam with friends? Pick out any song and go to the mixer button, there you can mute any instrument that's playing so you can jump right in and play along!"

"I love it. I'm a drummer, and Band-in-a-Box really keeps me on my toes!"

"The DAW plugin is really great. Trust me on this. I use it with Studio One.

"This is how I've been able to gig solo for the past 20 years. Band-in-a-Box is the great equalizer for us none rhythm players."

"Wouldn't want to be without it! One of the best things I bought in my life. Simple as that."

"As a songwriter I really love to work with Band-in-a-Box. The only limitation is your own creativity."

"I've used Band-in-a-Box for 25 years and thanks to this program and the advice of PG Music staff I've written over 100 songs. It's great software and amazing help to me as a musician. CONGRATS!!!"

Thank you for all the amazing feedback!
