It's All Good

Lyrics
I don't always, do what's right for me, I'm just as stubborn as a tree.
I can be, as thick, as a brick, wall.
I don't know nuthin 'bout livin' healthy, ain't figured out how to get myself wealthy.
Ain't got a dime, or the time to make that call...

(chorus) Don't always do what I think I should, but I'd like to think that I would if I could.
I Can't understand, why I'm so mis-understood,
But I'm gettin' better, and It's All good...

You could make eyes at me, and I'd Just look away,
I don't know what's wrong with me these days.
I got no pick-up, get-up and go,
And I can't remember when I felt so low.
If I could just find my ol' lady, I think I'd be ok...

(1st Chorus repeat) (Solo)

I got no pick-up, get-up and go,
and I can't remember when I felt so low.
ain't been the same, since my gal walked out that door...

(Last Chorus) Now everything changed when I left the hood, moved outa' town to a cabin in the woods,
Now I understand, I just misunderstood... I'm still crazy... and It's All Good...
(outro)

I produced this song several years ago with lots of help from BiaB, but unfortunately, I have no record of which Realtracks I used.
I sang, and played some Guitar & Keys... Tracked, Mixed & Mastered in Cakewalk.
Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy...

Hi, bloc-head.

Catchy and fun!

The vocals (and backing vocals) are excellent!

As is... well, everything else, too. wink

Solid production - sounds awesome on my headphones.

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

Hi bloc-head,

Absolutely superb - everything!

It reminds me so much of "The Band" playing "Ophelia" - and that is a very very good thing and big compliment to you.

The best song I've heard on this forum in a long time.

Well done.

Best Regards
Nigel

Sweet bluesy ear candy, impeccably produced. All kinds of forces playing really happy in there, bravo.

Song, vocals and slide reminded me of Lowell George and Little Feat. Another really, really good track from you!

Good rockin’ blues groove to this one. Some great internal rhyming that give it a nice feel. Terrific chorus featuring some great BGVs. Nice toe-tapping tune. Excellent!

Yeah, that’s one catchy chorus!

All my best to you,

Deej

Wow, that is a huge compliment... I remember "Levon & The Band" were some of my very favorites. I'm very flattered by your kind words. Thank you Nigel.

I love Little Feat and still miss Lowell George, years ago, after he died, I was lucky enough to meet the band members backstage, at one of their concerts, and was allowed to take a direct audio feed, straight out of the Main Mixer... recorded the whole show onto HI-FI VCR tapes... I still have the recordings. Thanks for listening, and the great feedback.

bloc-head,

You are continuing to produce some of the best music on the forum!! This is off the charts good! You are blending such cool sounds from so many directions that it's hard to appreciate it all! That chorus is chart topping stuff...for sure it would have been in the 70's!

A big fan here of your material and I am confident you will have many forum members, and beyond, in awe of the fine work you are producing!

Thanks, Torrey

Hey bloc...can I call you bloc? Bloc-Head seems so formal...I really like your music in general and this one in particular...your lyrics are always clever and interesting to listen to and the music is always a great marriage with them...I'm a harmony lover and this was tight...bluesy tunes always lend themselves to bluesy vocals (makes sense right?)...you nailed it...a great listen...Dan

BH,
You have a special relationship with words. They seem to be very obedient. Excellent composition and performance. Positive, well delivered tune. Liked the chorus type doubling harmonies. Thank you for sharing.
Misha.

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.
