Hi All,

Here's a simple folky slow-jam type of thing...

This is called Blue Tonight.

Guess I’m thinking, guess I’m done
Guess I’m going blind looking at the sun
Guess your busy, guess you were right
Guess your getting on fine with your life

I don’t know but sometimes I see the light
Guess I’m tinted
Shades of blue tonight

You kept my records, you kept my words
You kept me singing like a blue Bluebird
You got the best of me, you got it wrong
You got me trapped inside an old Dylan song

I don’t know but sometimes I see the light
Guess I’m tinted
Shades of blue tonight

Guess I’m crazy, broke up inside
Guess I’m trying to find a place to hide
Guess your running, guess you knew
Guess it’s all over now my baby blue

I don’t know but sometimes I see the light
Guess I’m tinted
Shades of blue tonight

I don’t know but sometimes I see the light
Guess I’m tinted
Shades of blue tonight

That's great , Bob. As I was listening I thought, "Man, I really like that voice. It reminds me of a better-singing Dylan." Right then is when you sang, "You got me trapped inside an old Dylan song." Really good song, well written, and produced.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Bob,

What a lovely, but sad song you made. And what a nice melody.
I was thinking of the same sentence Marty quoted about what you sang about Dylan.
Your vocals are made for this songs.
You can feel what you sing...

But to be honest, i have that with -I think- all your songs.
And I like that!

Have a nice day,
Hans

WOW Bob this is top shelf all the way.

Your vocal was perfect for this song and our lyrics were fantastic, very poetic.

The backing tracks and mix were also spot on.

Two thumbs up.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Great song oozing sadness in the touching lyrics, in the simply beautiful chord progression and in the emotional vocals mixed excellently. The instrument selection is perfect, everything is there to deliver the strong blue mood.

Bob,

Man you are the folk rock music king around here! Everyone of your tunes deliver the goods! Emotional vocals really bring the song to a place where people can relate to what you're saying! I always enjoy your work! Thanks, Torrey

'Guess it’s all over now my baby blue'. Nice tip of the hat to the guy inside whose song she earlier had you trapped, Bob (a place I've found myself often enough smile ). Another fine song in your signature style. Such a great sound.
Regards,
Leon

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

"You got the best of me, you got it wrong
You got me trapped inside an old Dylan song"

Love that!

And then:

"Guess your running, guess you knew
Guess it’s all over now my baby blue"

Excellent writing, Bob! And as always I really like your vocal.

I've been a Dylan fan forever BTW, that music never gets old for me smile

Bob,
A very cool write with great lines and an upfront vocal that communicates the sadness so well.
You are distilling the Robert Dean style to a purity here; there`s a trancelike quality I enjoy in recognizing the familiar cues- crystal clear acoustic guitar, great drums and that gravelly voice!
Loved this.

Robert

Well we see that our reaction to the lyric has already been well covered.
At the risk of redundancy the Dylan references are very cool. As is your vocal.

Your mixes are always high bar and this one just sparkles and sets up a great soundstage.
That acoustic guitar sounds great! The upright and held piano are perfecto.

Outstanding...already listened three times!

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.

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."
