I did a my first solo project in 2003 and this song was on that project so I took the vocals from the original and gave the song a new flavor with BiaB...it's kind of a Marty Roginesque track (IMO) (I'm making up words here.)...hope you like it...Dan

Hello Dan,

Your song has a lovely melody and is sung very good (although your pronouncation of 'Savior' can be improved; I couldn't hear what you sang).
But I liked how the song was build up. Especially how you performed when that very nice transposing came in. I think it was at 1/3 before the end of the song.
I am not at all religious, but that doesn't mean I can't like beutiful songs and vocals. And that's what is going on here!
That update is very well done, but I haven't heard the original song...

Hans

Dan, great groove, great vocal, and mix but the lyrics took it over the top for me. Outstanding!

This should be on all Christian radio stations right now!

Absolutely loved it!

Beautiful song well performed.


I'm in the camp with Birchwood.
For those who have religious furfure, I'm sure it hits a more meaningful note.
That doesn't mean I can't appreciate a good song.
Love the vocals.

Hi Dan,
I think you hit the nail right on the head, definitely has shades of Marty Robbins. Really good, smooth vocals. The band you chose works well too. Thanks for posting, I enjoyed the listen!

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.
