My buddy and I recently did a parody song about a common activity on a modern farm. The song is based on The Everly Brothers song "Crying In the Rain." I used Band In A Box to make the drum and bass tracks. I am singing harmony and playing piano, and my buddy is singing lead and playing acoustic guitar.
I used Reaper to mix the audio, and the video was edited with Windows Movie Maker.
The video features pictures and footage taken at my brother's farm, including some video taken with my recently acquired Mavic Mini drone.
A word of warning: there is some extremely mild profanity at the very end of the video, if you happen to make it that far.
I'll never likely see A harvest time that won't trouble me My crop's in the rain but I've got propane So it won't be in vain I'll be drying all my grain
If I wait for sunny skies Harvest won't be done till next July The grain might be tough but it's still dry enough Though the combine might strain I'll be drying all my grain
Raindrops falling from heaven Always seem to make for misery But since I've got my dryer Propane I will acquire And chase the damp from my canola seed
Next spring when my drying's done I'm gonna wear smile and seed in the sun I may be a fool but till then I shall fuel My dryer with propane I'll be drying all my grain
Parody songs are always so fun, and it looks like you guys got creative with this one!
Thanks, Ember. It's been a bit of a running gag at rehearsals the last little while, so one day I decided to take it to the the next level and flesh out some lyrics. I was also itching to use my new drone for something, so it all worked out, I suppose.
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT
Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!
"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."
(I think our name was a great start!)
"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."
"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
