This one reflects my observations of our current human condition.
People embracing wild conspiracies, authoritative leaders and fostering hate instead of love.

One line is 'We've got a bad disease".
That is not a reference to COVID it's a disease of anger, hate and tribal behavior that seems to have infected too many people.

----------Lyrics-----------

Can you tell me, Where my world has gone
What the hell, Is going on
We've got laser beams and broken dreams
And nobody knows what the truth means
Like the tower of Babylon

Oooh Oooh Ooooh

Can you tell me where, The truth has gone
Is there anything, That we can agree upon
We've got laser beams and broken dreams
Nobody knows what the truth means
And nothing left to me counting on

Ooo Ooo Oooo

Can anybody tell me, what's going on
What's going on Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh

We’ve got crazy schemes , Angry themes
That tear us down Ooooh Ooooh Oooh

Can you tell me, where the love has gone
How can we, Can we carry on

We've got a bad disease, And nobody's free
Without everyone Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh

Where has my world gone…………..

Hello Moto
A lot of truth packed into a great song
Musically very well implemented
Vocals are a hit
The song has a strong melody that transports the theme really well
Your artwork idea is exactly fitting
Thanks for the great song, Moto
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

This is a very well done, but depressing song. Maybe you should move south for the winter...

Thanks,
Funny.....don't think I'll be moving south but, my observations suggest our disease is world wide.

Captain,
Very neat tune. Indie Folk Rock? I give up smile Unique stuff. Reminds me of messages that bands like U2 and Cranberries conveyed during turbulent times. Timely subject matter. Very cool sound and vocal delivery!
There is always hope. As saying goes: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Thanks for giving it a listen.
I think that's the first time anyone said my vocals where beautiful.

Hey Misha,
Thanks for dropping in.
"Indie Folk Rock" ??? I have to confess I do not understand genre labels.
I am always hopeful but concerned about our current direction.

Nice song. Also it's delivered in a very believable manner. In other words you were really feeling what you were singing and it came across in the delivery. That's what is important to me. Excellent job !! I also have a socially conscious song but it's probably not suited for the forum :-)

I like the background harmony vocals. They are well positioned as they are present enough to hear but not not overly loud to be intrusive.

The tempo seems to change in spots.

I also listened to "Bad Like You". Neat song to listen to. Is the foot thump an effect or did you record it?

Thanks for listening Jim,
Funny you should mention the backing vocals, the original mix had those too present and a friend suggested I dial it back.........good advise.
The Tempo is consistent but, the energy builds.

About "BAd Like You" the percussion is me slapping the guitar.
Thanks for noticing.

Morning Captain,

Man, you are on a roll lately!

Love your vocal, maybe your best yet I think, and the guitar is right in the pocket.

Might be my new favorite from you, excellent song!

YEAH!! Man, right from the start this is captivating, Moto. Excellent vocal and quite a range, man. [I've got an answer for you. It's what no one ever wants to talk about. Overpopulation.] Right after this one played Bad Like You came on. I know I told ya I love that song, and it's worth repeating. Breaks over. I had to go back to World Gone to continue here. All your songs are worth countless listens, I like the way you build this song, and how you come in half way through in the higher register. Nice.

[P.S. Thanks for your comment on my song The Price. Since it was already on page 2, I didn't want to reply and bring it back to the top, but, man, I appreciate you.]


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks Dave,
I'm always very critical of my own vocals.
Recently, I've dialed in a decent signal path and effects chain that seems to be working for me.

Glad to hear that you liked it.

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!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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."
