Hi, friends !

Must say I´ve been away for too long really !
Have to tell you the reason: We were to have
a reparation of the plumming system in our
City House in Helsinki ! As we could not fly down
to Spain to Marianico, we started to search for
a summer cottage at a radius of 150-200 km:s from
Helsinki, and finally after having seen at least
20 different places we found our little cosy
cabin in Kiikala, Salo some 93 km:s from our city
home ! ...and naturally we´ve lived there up til now
mostly completely out of computers and other
electronic devices than our mobile phones !

So, my friends, AS I am only starting to finish new material
I thought I would post this older tune "Summer Is Gone"
that I did write for quite a time ago !

It deals with the summer ending up here in the north and
the crispy chilling fall coming in to replace it slowly
but surely !

My apologizes for not having saved the lyrics separately
but I think or at least I hope that you´ll be able to
detect the words from the tune !

No info about the instros or styles either since
they were on a computer that cracked up before saving !

Cheers
Dani

And here is a picture of the view from our new
summer cabin named Tallero, which means peace amongst the Pine trees !

Another signature Dani, I have to admit that I always find your material intriguing and this is no exception.

Harmonies, and everything slotted together perfectly. Great backing, really enjoyable listen.

Nice, really.

Real nice melody. Liked the harmonies alot. Interest-holding movement of chords.
Enjoyed it.
Only constructive comment--I would have carried out the I-IV vamp to a fade at the end.
Thanks for posting!

Hey Dani, this tune really takes me back. Sounds like something I might have heard in the radio in the 70's. Beautiful harmonies and you've really captured a sunny, summery feel. I can just picture sun, clouds, hiking or picnicking on a grassy hillside.

Such a pleasant and mellow feel-good song. Your vocals are a stand out on this.

Perfect song for the beginning of autumn. Very pleasing vocals.
Nice melancholy chording and melody. Enjoyable band and great radio-friendly mix.

Nice looking cottage smile Hope to hear your new material soon smile

Welcome back, Dani. Lovely gentle tune. Really enjoyed the harmonies. And nothing I like better than 'getting [myself] out in the crispy air.' The cabin looks to be in a beautiful spot.
Regards,
Leon

That was a pleasant listen!

Exactly what I needed after weeks of smoke and haze here - a short vacation to a cabin surrounded by greenery. smile

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Dani,
Your silky smooth layered harmonies and ever positive pop songs have been missed.
You deliver again with this- and I like that idea of offgrid cabin life!

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.
