Hello Band-in-a-Box lovers
I was reading a post in the off-topic forum this morning and was motivated to post one of my recent songs in this forum. I am still writing fairly regularly and here is a song from this years 50 90 song-writing challenge. It was a co-write with Donna Levine.
Comments are most welcome
Lyrics: Like ev’ry kid I would study the sky Dazzled by stars The how the why
And I’d think to myself Oh WOW! There must be hundreds …Well, not even close
Don’t know who I am Just who I’ve been Through a prism that shows All I’ve done, all I’ve seen ...No stopping at what went before There’ll always be more
Like everyone I would study the heart Dazzled by love Especially the start
And I’d think to myself Oh WOW! It won’t be painful …Well, not even close
Chorus Only two questions concern me now …Whether I’m a tumbleweed Or an angel still on course directionless Or returning to the Source
Chorus Don’t know who I am Just who I’ve been Through a prism that shows All I’ve done, all I’ve seen ...No stopping at what went before There’ll always be more

LOVELY harmonies as usual. A very strong melody and a very fine vocal performance.

Ah!!! A melodious song ... I love this kind, especially because I, for one, find it very hard to write melodies ... I prefer chords, etc., so ... very impressed when someone writes melodies this well and makes it sound so, so easy.
Stunning lyrics, too. "Don't know who I am, only who I've been" is probably up there with one of the greatest philosophical realisations. I, too, think that we never indeed know who we fully are, only who we have been - and this is directly and so beautifully expressed here.
Finally, the voice is as clear as a spring and totally secure in its technical elements ... intonation, tone control, etc. - as well as so expressive musically.
Strong Joan Baez vibe throughout. Very nice lyric tying in the underestimations of youth with the realities of maturity. A solid package of listening goodness.
If I have a crit is would be your phrasing choice in the chorus--holding such a long note under "at". I think you could find a way to rephrase that line to break away momentarily from strictly following the rolling groove. Just an observation.

Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve into an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians. You can produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. As it has been for years, it’s an amazing program.
From my perspective, as a long-time user of BIAB, the above improvements, changes and additions definitely take the program to the next step. The new elements and audio upgrading are fantastic and I’m even more excited to work with this version than some others in the past.
