Happy New Year, everyone! How's everyone? I really hope you will have a better year than any previous one, especially recent ones.

Anyway, here's my first song of 2022. I do hope you like it - feedback and comments always welcome, as usual. Thanks so much for listening!

Just a little bit of background: I read somewhere, over Christmas, that quantum entanglement is the phenomenon whereby two particles, once they meet and vibrate in harmony with one another, continue to so vibrate if separated, regardless of time and space. I found that so romantic ... and I had to write a song about it :-) Hope you do enjoy :-)

https://jamesdelsono.bandcamp.com/track/quantum-entangled


QUANTUM ENTANGLED

I know you're missing me,
You know I'm missing you;
How do we know? Easily;
You're half my soul, it's true ...

Quantum entangled,
That's how we are,
If old or younger,
If near or far.

So please don't be proud
Too proud to admit
That you love me, out loud,
If only a little bit ...

Quantum entangled ...
It's not a sin
To ditch the sang froid,
To invite love in ...

***

Quantum entangled
That's how we are
Though old or younger,
Though near or far.

Quantum entangled ...
It's not a sin
To ditch the sang froid,
To invite love in ...

Quantum Entangled. Man, you had me right from the title, James. Seriously, brother, you are so good with your own style. The sax was a welcomed surprise since I didn't see it listed with the others. I'm ditching my sang froid. Hey, there's your next title: Up Sang Freud. Excellent lyric and well sung.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Yes, the title lured me in. Then the sang froid won me over. Nice work.

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

James,

Always good hearing you sing. Keep it up.

A very interesting idea to write - makes for a good title
(I am reading a novel at the moment that involves the same concept - Interference by Brad Parks)

The sax is nice. The mix is good.

I have used "quantum entanglement" in one of my love songs, so it is very welcome to read and hear your interpretation of the theme smile You have handled it very beautifully and romantically and supported the mood with very nice simple arrangement and lovely sax.

James you have a style all your own and it is a good style!

I really liked the chord progression and the sax.

Your vocal was very good, you have really improved in that department.

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.

Nice way to start the year!

Better than tangled up in blue...well, actually one of my fav Dylan tunes smile

Your vocal well delivered the creative lyric.

As with others the sax was an excellent choice.
And the mix sounds very nice on the monitors.

Enjoyed it!

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?

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."
