Song By Elliott Kayne

Writers and Rebels Hard Rocks and Pebbles
Grinding the castles to sand
With Swords and the Cross They suffered their loss
For freedom they grasp in their hands

Castles and churches Rivers and bridges
Sheep in the meadows and fields
Graveyards and bards Barnyards and scarfs
Invite you in for a meal

A Kiss will grant me Blarney Colors Emerald and Blue
a song of the past and a nation at last
to Ireland be true to Ireland be true

A pint in a pub sing stories of glory
Tenors with whiskey and beer
Knights of might fair maidens and priests
They fight for the right of good cheer

Distilleries artillery’s the long forgotten
Drive the wild Irish coast
A line from Ulysses flavored by Whiskeys
Lift up your pint in a toast

I enjoyed this one a lot!

Good write, clever rhymes, well sung. You packed a lot into those lyrics!

That final guitar bend made me laugh! laugh

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

I Lift up my green pint in a toast to your fineail little ditty. Well done.

Could I just shoehorn a quick comment about You Lied to Me and Life is Good.

Wow, what a wonderful tribute to such a land rich in beauty and people. So much so much in the lyrics. A beautiful blarney waltz posted on the proper day. A masterful write, Elliott.

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!

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.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
