Hey My fellow BIAB lovers...I'd really like you to listen to this one. I didn't think I'd write another song in 2020, but this one seemed to come together pretty easily. And I think it's one of the best songs I've written, but I'm my own worst critic, so I don't know. I value any opinions on here. I'm a kid of divorce and I recently found out that a beloved family member is going to go through one - with kids involved. That's where this song came from. Anyway, I'd love to know what you think, really. I wrote this song in BIAB using the _ANGLE.STY, then did some post production in Ableton. Merry Christmas all! I hope you're not missing anyone this holiday.

Lyrics:
ANOTHER CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU
written by m. mcgeehan

Never know what you’re missing
Till it’s taken away
You’re not here this Christmas
And we all feel the pain
Yeah I know what you’re thinking
This is just another Christmas song
But last year you were here with us
Right where you belong

Another Christmas without you
A Holiday of tears
We hope and pray, We’ll find a way
That you’ll be here next year

The whitest snow is falling
The way I fell for you
But then you went and said goodbye
It’s what you had to do

Another Christmas without you
A Holiday of tears
We hope and pray, We’ll find a way
That you’ll be here next year
The kids are missing you
And you know I miss you too

Another Christmas without you
A Holiday of tears
We hope and pray, We’ll find a way
That you’ll be here next year

SO well done, Michael. You really bring out the emotion with this one. Dang, I can't stop that tingly feeling that precedes tears. Beautifully done, man!


Enjoy whatever happens!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
