All comments good or bad are very welcome.

Let's do it again

just like we did back then

lets give it one more try

Let's do it again


Let's do it again

just like we used to do

we did it all night long

Let's do it again


C’mon, jump in the night is young

let's jitterbug and cut the rug

I''l get you at six - off to the ritz

swing and sway, wadda you say?



Let's do it again

if we remember how

I'd like to do it now

Let's do it again


*Instrumental============

C’mon, jump in the night is young

let's jitterbug and cut the rug

I''l get you at six - off to the ritz

swing and sway, wadda you say?


Let's do it again

like we did it before

We would dance up a storm

Let's do it again

==========================

The Band

Gary,

An excellent use of BIAB. Great BAND. One of the best uses of the crooner horns I've heard.

Good vocals. Solid mix.

And a good "simple" write that works perfectly.

Really well done all around.

Hi Gary,

Original spoken intro and outro. Your well-paced composition is well mixed. I like your well put voice that comes out well. Good use of biab realtracks. The whole is well done. I appreciated.

Kindly regard

Love it, Gary. Perhaps you are stuck, but, man, not stuck for creative expressions. Outstanding vocals and harmony. Wow, those horns sounds great. So hot. "Sure makes a mess of this box of candy." Excellent from start to fade.

There are a bunch of really excellent styles in BiaB that I know I'll never use, and it's a kick to hear people use them, especially when it's done so well, like you do here.

Great write - fits perfectly. Good singing, even if it's reluctantly done. wink

The horns, the solos, the phrasing, the harmonies - everything comes together to make this a fun recreation of this style of music.

And the spoken bit is - dare I say it - a hoot. laugh

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

Gary,

I liked that old time radio sound intro! That's a cool song idea and production! I think your instrumentation choices were beautiful for this! That clarinet was perfect for this! Take care, T

Hi Floyd
When posting a new song it is always a nervous wait for the first comment. When I saw that the first respondent was you Floyd I was even more nervous .
I am overjoyed to read your positive comments which mean a great deal to me. Thank you Floyd.

Hi Ronnie.
Yeah biab is a quality product. I've been using it for well over twenty years (we havn't always seen eye to eye) and I feel I have only scratched the surface of it's capabilities.
Thank you for you kind words Ronnie.
cheers
Gary.

Great sweet melody and the old time mood dance together nicely. I very much enjoyed the vocals and feel good lyrics. The band is excellent and the clarinet solo made me wonder how Woody Allen would use this song in his movie.

Gary,
An impressive use of this hardly used style- from fun intro through good vocals,great harmonies, a sweet clarinet solo and that spoken outro... everything works!
Cool,I mean, hot.

That spoken word intro (and outro) was unexpected, but fun!

Good song, you captured that era pretty well I thought, well done!

Kiitos Janne for your nice words and taking the trouble to comment. I am thrilled that this forum provides the platform to post a song from Australia and have a talented musician (your good self) in Finland listen and comment!
Terveiset

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
