A song I wrote for my 95 year old mother, who would have been 100 last New Year's Day...

Earline

Earline, I got somethin’ brand new,
Earline, I wrote this song just for you.
You we’re the baby of the family,
Prettiest flower on the family tree… Earline…

Earline, when you we’re sweet sixteen,
Earline, coulda’ been a Delta Queen,
Sweetest gal, ever seen,
Shoulda’ been a model in a magazine, Earline

Earline, What on earth is wrong wit chu,
Earline, Still can’t believe that it was true
I can remember the words you said,
when you told me you had eyes in the back of yo head,
Earline… now I know what you mean…
~ Solos ~
Earline, won’t you come on out and play,
Earline, It’s almost Mother’s Day,
I don’t expect we’ll make the scene,
I just thought I’d buy you some Ice Cream, Earline.
~ Solo ~
New year’s baby back in 1922, old father time’s been pretty good to you…
Sweetest gal I’ve ever seen, Coulda been a model in a magazine, Earline… I love you…

This is a super tribute to your mother

Super groove, vocal, and mix

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.

Very cool song. Loved the intro. Love how things started to slide into alignment and then the band kicked in. Loved it.

Hi Bloc-head,

This is another good song from you and reminds me of early Rolling Stones - maybe something from the Beggars Banquet album era.

Keep up the great work.

Best Regards
Nigel

That's really sweet, to be able to do that, in such a nice song. I thought for a while about recording something when my mother died but paled before the idea of trying to capture the loss. Maybe some day I can try it your way.

This is a really good one. I loved that it was about you're mom - unique and original and a cool, toe-tappin' vibe. Puts a smile on my face. I'd like to do something like this someday - inspiring!

After reading your description, I certainly never expected what followed.

What a fantastic tribute.

Your Mother must have been a wonderful funny person.

Knockout arrangement, absolutely.

BH,
Nice tribute. Very well put together and performed. The sound reminds me of some of ELO tunes.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

What a great tribute to your Mama - the lyric, performances - the total package!

Our Mama’s would’ve loved hearing this and they both would’ve said, “isn’t he sweet!”

We love the photo of your Mama also!

After the intro the vocal made this sound very Rocky Burnett.
Personally I prefer the groove of the intro.
The vocal gets really loud and seems strident in a couple of frequencies.
The progression & melody are cool & the narrative is really good.


Cheers

bloc-head,

All of the comments, including mine, cannot do this justice! This song is a thing of beauty! It's hit worthy, catchy and worth many, many listens!
You are producing music that this forum needs to put on a pedestal as a shining example of what can be done using BIAB! I really hope the folks at PG Music are taking note of the consistent high-level work that you are sharing! I appreciate all of it! Thanks, Torrey

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."
