I Still Do - RePost

I originally posted this almost 4 years ago. I've not had much time to create a lot of new music, so I hope this one sounds okay and everyone is okay with me reposting an older song. Any and all comments appreciated.

My time here has been limited but trying to do a little catching up as I can.


I Still Do
© 2017 Alan D. David, BMI

(v1)
The sky gets gloomy, as the clouds roll in
That’s when I know, you’re back in town in again
The thunder rattles, and the leaves begin to shake
The wind starts swirling, and frost begins to form
Then lightning crackles, you’re the perfect storm
The ground starts trembling, just like an earthquake

CHORUS
And when you left, I thought that was goodbye
But now I know, I told myself a lie
You made me hurt, and you treated me like dirt
Oh I wish I didn’t love you
But baby I still do

(v2)
Don’t know the reason, I can’t explain
Why I still love you, when you caused me all that pain
God only knows, why I wish you’d never gone
I hear my heart, then I listen to my head
They say forget you, find another love instead
But I just can’t find a way, a way for moving on

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

CHORUS
And when you left, I thought that was goodbye
But now I know, I told myself a lie
You made me hurt, and you treated me like dirt
Oh I wish I didn’t love you
But baby I still do

TAG
Baby I still do

Four years?

Heck, four weeks is more than enough time to pass for me to forget that I'd ever heard a given song. wink

Nice song, glad to hear it (again?). smile

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

Never heard the original but, this is a great song.
I like the writing on this and the catchy hook.
Band sounds good vocal has a unique cutting quality that makes it sit nicely in the mix.

Well done!

I see I left a review for this song over on SC three years ago wink

I don't remember it though, and well worth another listen.

Good song, Alan, enjoyed!

Hope you guys are settling in to your new house ok.

Alan,

A good song with a good, basic get-the-song-across backing.

Always nice to hear a pedal steel solo.

A good mix. Enjoyed the listen.

Hope y'all are doing well.

Hello Floyd ...

I kinda used the KISS approach to this one ... nothing overly-complicated. Glad you enjoyed it once again. I appreciate the nice words!

Best to you & yours. Be safe...

It's new to me. Sounds good. Reminds me of a Dylan formatted song. Cool. Nice use of the band too.

Hi Alan,

I don't mind if you remake older songs, as they are good it's good!
And your song has a nice melody, tempo, band, vocals and lyrics. I enjoyed listening!
I had to smile on the last lines of the chorus. Nicely said, but is also gives mixed feelings...

While typing my lines your song still plays in my head.
That is the feeling songs must give!

Send my greetings to Di,
Hans

Hi Alan,

I'm glad you re-posted this one. I haven't heard many songs of yours with you as a cocalist, and I remember that each time you posted one you mentioned that you were not happy with your vocals.

Hearing this one I think that you should consider to come up with a non-instrumental far more often - I definitely like your singing style. In it's fragileness it sounds so ... ah .. true and honest, no frills, just transporting the emotion of these (very well written!) lyrics perfectly.

When I listened to it, Maha incidentally crossed the room, suopped and listened, too, without saying a word. Then she said, 'Look here, goosebumps...'

Musically, I think, this song is somehow perfect - everything's in the pocket, that PSG solo is grand. radio stuff !

Really, really good !

All the best to Di and you,

Stefan

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!"

continued...

Do you have something to say about Band-in-a-Box®? Post your own thoughts for Windows or Mac version today!

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."
