I see this as the fifth song from an album that produced four hit singles. It's that one on the album that you skip those four hits and jump straight to your favorite song on the album. You can't hear enough.

Great song. Great job all around.



Charlie - thanks for another nice set of comments!

Hi Floyd.
It's all been said already and all the plaudits are well deserved, so I'll just add that it's no easy feat to convey sincerity in a love song without coming across as mawkish, but you always do it so well.
Regards,
Leon

We rarely quote another review but man did Rayc ever NAIL it.

Your acoustic guitar and the cello sounded so good and the mix is nice and open.

As always, the lead and harmony vocal were sublime and Janice was singing along
with you too!

And we always enjoy seeing your artwork.

Excellent!

Mr. & Mrs. Dreamy... Thanks!! smile

Beautifully done. I like the start with the gentle acoustic in the first half of the song and the build with the band in the latter half.

Always a nice thing to hear!!

OK, that's not entirely true. I was listening to the bass part the second or third time through, and wondering if was you or BiaB, when at 0:34 it jumps up an octave and leaves the low end wanting. And at 0:26, the DI guitar pluck is a touch too loud, and there's a bit of a pop.

Whew. Glad to get that off my chest. wink

I've called the bass player in for "a talk"... smile

Quote:

The handcrafted bits are seamlessly woven in with BiaB. The nylon guitar riffs are perfect, and I love what you do with the strings - just enough motion to make them convincing, but not so busy they call attention away from the song. I'd have been convinced you weren't using BiaB drums, if it wasn't for the tom fill.

As usual, your mix is nice and transparent - which makes all the lovely details apparent.

Also nice to hear...

Quote:

Great write - everything leads nicely to the chorus, which doesn't disappoint.

Thanks!!

Quote:

And your singing? Fantastic as always. Especially after I've been listening to robots singing all day. laugh

Floyd, all I can say is you have written another masterpiece that you perfectly sang. You are a very masterful wordsmith and musician.

A real pleasure and joy to listen to.


Thanks, Tangmo. I always appreciate your careful listen and thoughtful, insightful comments...

This is far and away one of the most beautiful songs I've heard on here. You and a couple of others so-called miscreants on here create like there's no tomorrow. Come to think of it, the standard's incredibly high on here, but you're one of the few that are at the top of the very top. Why? Because you know how to speak to people when you write and you sing. No nonsense, no beating around the bush, no complicating things. You speak to hearts when you sing. And that's pretty unbelievable - many of us wish we could do the same. Bravo.


Well said, musician17!! Floyd, James speaks for me here. Chills. Wait, when the final sustain hit came, I finally have some constructive criticism. That guitar sustain is too long, man. Oh, man, I feel so good --like I just saw the S through Superman's white shirt.


smile - Thanks, Marty. Sustain, refrain, abstain... smile

I was able to check back in today, and as soon I saw your name on this one, I knew I was going to be in for a treat.

This one gives me chills. The arrangement is impeccable, and your vocals always shine. The write on this is as good as it gets.

So glad I was able to get here and give this a listen!

Steve - coming from you, that means a lot... thanks!!

There something about this song that lifts it above your body of work. Your sensitive lyrics and the quietly reassuring music seem to describe a man who, perhaps, has shed all of his youthful insecurities about his relationships with women and, 'seeing the light' at last, commits to becoming the other, and better man he's always wanted to be. No longer hiding behind the facade of being a swaggering, selfish lady-killer, but willing himself to be a true lover and protector. As user's forum member 'edshaw' so powerfully and simply observed, "Here, you've set the bar for what a man can be."

No doubt such a man could be the kind of guy that most women believe they would only meet in a dream, but your song, and particularly the title, 'I Think I've Got It In Me', suggests that a man could actually choose to make that dream a reality when he's lived long enough to come to understand that he's got to give away freely that which he wants to receive.

You sing your lyrics as though you are offering pieces of your yielding heart. I'm certain there would be a lot of takers.


Loren - Thanks for the wonderful comments.....

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...

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."
