Hello forum friends. Have not been around too much lately but I love to drop in and hear what's happening.......lots of great stuff!! This is a song about deep longing for someone that is no longer there. Hope you don't find it too depressing in these difficult times. Would love to know what you think. I don't always get around to responding to comments but I always read them, and always appreciate them! Take care all. Greg

I got a new computer and inadvertently created a new Soundcloud account. I will have to go to their support and try to get this song put on that account. It is hard enough to accumulate some listeners....don't want to lose them that easily!

The Moon Just Seems to Know

At night
I hear the cold wind blow
And somewhere deep inside my heart
I can feel the echo

In the midnight glow
I hear those wind chimes ring
The soft and lonely sound
Of the hollow song they sing

And now that you have gone
I'm drowning in lonliness
Aching for your sweet caress
The hunger lingers on
I try to hide my pain
And no let the heartache show
But I'm haunted by you once again
The wind just seems to know
The wind just seems to know

I see the moon
So distant and so cold
Who knows just how he sees this world
The secrets that he holds

His somber glow
Lord, it feels so strange
For, once he seemed a guardian
Now his mood has changed

And now that you have gone
I'm drowning in lonliness
Aching for your sweet caress
The hunger lingers on
I try to hide my pain
And no let the heartache show
But I'm haunted by you once again
The moon just seems to know
The moon just seems to know

This is just so nice, Greg! Sad, yet tender. I enjoyed the minimal number of backing tracks. Exactly enough with no overkill. A wonderful lyric wrapped in a heartfelt, emotion arrangement. I also like that you end the choruses, and the song, by going to the minor 6 chord rather than resolving to the tonic. It adds an extra touch of sadness that the song endears. Loved it!

Best to you and yours. Be safe ...

Alan

Man, I'm not going to even try and analyse this, it would cheapen it somehow.

Really well produced Greg, and a little different form your usual material, but nonetheless absolutely enjoyable.

Frankly, you've demonstrated another dimension to your talents. Big vocal range, provided with lots of precision.

This song encompasses remarkable lyrics, encapsulated in a really well delivered performance.

BE.A.U.TI.FUL!!!

This is as good as it gets.

Adele and Celine Dion should be fighting over who gets to record this. IF Barbara Streisand would let them have a chance at it first...

Yesterday, we were listening to some Judy Collins... "Send In The Clowns" and "The Moon's A Harsh Mistress". This stands up to either of those. You mentioned Dianne Warren in your review of my current post. She can't even touch this. Not even close.

Songwriting at its very best.

Your vocal and your production of it are every bit a match for the song quality. GORGEOUS. WOW.

YOU should be a HUGE star. This should be a HUGE hit. Oscar should be calling..

Greg,
A lovely song that sounds like a great movie ballad. The simple arrangement works well and your vocals ( performance and processing) are up there with your best.
Very well done!

Floyd mentioned Babs, Adele, and Celine... I was thinking the same thing as I was listening.

Well written and recorded.

Bravo!

Great song and vocals as usual! Love the line "The moon just seems to know." I heard more than a nod to Autumn Leaves, which is a good thing in my book. As many have said, you deserve greater recognition.

Greg,

First off, a really strong write, but, second, one of your strongest vocals—really outstanding. A soft, sad and hauntingly beautiful song. I think musician17 has this just right—sounds like a Sting song. He would do it very well, I’m sure . . . but you just slay it. In every way, outstanding!

My humble regards,

Deej

An enchanting vocal and melody with the perfect
minimalist backing...very nice piano.

Janice mentioned she was reminded of 1960's movie
ballads.

Sad indeed but a lovely production.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
