Smooth is the word indeed!

The vocals are like silk. Very nice.

The lyric and arrangement are perfect for the
laid back feel.

We enjoyed it!

J&B

PS: And those vocals deserve, IMHO, to come up a bit in
the mix. You have a fine voice... no reason not to put it
out front!

Thanks for the kind words. I have noticed that I'm a bit of a stranger with my type of music in these threads but I'm glad you liked it :-)

Love it! Shades of Luther Vandross there. I agree ... the voice needs to be MUCH more "up" in the mix. But otherwise ... brilliant! Well done!

It's a lovely song - chords, melody & lyrics.
The kick drum is a little odd though..prominent and more batter than thud.
Smooth as satay sauce with just a few chunks of wah for texture.

Well done. Smooth sounds. Yes, vocals need some EQ. They are too good to be in background. But a nice song all around. Good use of BIAB.

Hello Henry,

Nice smooth sound and great vocal!
It's little nostalgic. I feel the 1980's Motown sound somewhere in this tune.
The chord progression Cmaj7-Bm7-Fmaj9-F#m7b5/B7 in the middle of the song is tricky and wonderful.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

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.
