Sorry for the third song in quick succession posted on here. It seems I tend to work in bursts ... a few songs at once, then nothing for ages.

Anyway, here's my latest and probably (hopefully!) last one for a while now. Hope you enjoy and thank you for stopping by and listening and commenting - your feedback is always helpful and always welcome!

PRIORITY

A writer once wrote
That the most important thing in this world
Was not love

That sometimes some things take
Priority

What do you think? What do you see?

***

A reader once thought
That the most important thing in this world
Was indeed love

That sometimes certain things take
Priority ... and yet love

Remained his destiny ...

What do you feel?

***
In this world
Where we don't feel
Or come across
Anything real

Is love worth a try
For you and I
Or do some things
Come first in life?

What's on your mind?

***
Let me know,
So I may know
Which way to go ...

Let me know,
So I may see
Eternity

So I may know
If it is there
For you and me.

Or if other things
Take priority.

Nice write,
As I listened and read the lyrics, I was thinking this would be a great song for a big voice and personality like Barbara Streisand.

Beautiful message.

Lovely backtrack. Another excellent vocal. I agree with CaptainMoto. I think this could translate to a big vocal.

Very nice song. Love the lyrics. I think the voice suits the song perfectly. It has an intimate presence.

HI James ...

I've said this many times before but offer no apology for my redundancy: You are so good these spoken word songs. I always enjoy your work. You always pick the best backing tracks for your songs. A very provocative lyric that causes the listener to pause and think about what you just said. Another excellent track, my friend. Loved it!

Wishing you and yours the very best. Pleaese be safe ...

Alan

PG Music News
RealBand® Works Great in Windows® 11!

Here's an introductory look at RealBand® running on the preview version of Windows® 11!

Watch the video.

Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

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!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"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."
