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® for Mac - Audio Chord Wizard Overview Video

Tutorial - Downloading and Installing Your Band-in-a-Box® Purchase
When you order your copy of Band-in-a-Box® from our website you'll receive the installation files to download your order, even if you're having it shipped!
You can access these files within the My Products section of your online account.
Downloading the program is such a convenient way to get started with Band-in-a-Box®! To learn more about how to download your purchase, please review the written tutorials we've created for Windows and Mac.
Where would music be today without the sultry sounds of the Saxophone? Fortunately, because of Adolphe Sax, we don't have to find out!
Today we celebrate his birthday, and with that a nod to our extensive collection of Saxophone RealTracks for Band-in-a-Box®!
Saxophone RealTracks sound so amazing that they were one of the first RealTracks we developed and released for the program with Band-in-a-Box® 2007! Now there are more than 200 Saxophone RealTracks available for Jazz, Rock, Blues, Country, Funk, and Pop!
Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!
Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either! (or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)
In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.
When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!
PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
