Lyrics:

this year began like the one before
little did we know what lay in store
what the hand of fate held up her sleeve
even now it's hard to believe

reset the clocks, inspect the locks
welcome to year zero
never more as it was before
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero

for this, there is no precedent
so many crises, no President
the old rules no longer apply
this planet I don't even recognize

delete the blogs, release the dogs
welcome to year zero
the past today has been swept away
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero

we're starting from scratch like a newborn child
baby steps first soon running wild
just try to put this genie back in its lamp
you can't unring this bell or turn time back

reset the clocks, inspect the locks
welcome to year zero
never more as it was before
welcome to year zero

delete the blogs, release the dogs
welcome to year zero
the past today has been swept away
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero
welcome to year zero

This whole tune took me back to the early 80's man...

All I could hear in my head the whole time the song was playing was "Stray Cat Strut"

Your voice even sounds a bit like a crooning Brian Setzer.

This is a first round draft pick for the soundtrack of the real life apocalypse movie we are all about to star in...

Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. Yeah, I was concerned it sounded too much like Stray Cat Strut. Loved your line "about the soundtrack of the real life apocalypse movie we are all about to star in". It should have been part of the lyrics.

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.)
