Cool vacation tune. Certainly carries the Caribbean vibe. Mix suggestions: I thought the bass was a little to far out front. Vocal and harmonies could come forward and pull the backing band back a bit.

Listening to this song I had a flashback to our Caribbean cruise we took a number of years ago.

You had the paradise groove going on for sure

Super vocal and backing band - I thought the bass sounded just fine

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.

A wonderfully inviting song, Elliott. Yes, the bass is too loud, and I almost NEVER say that. You bring back some magic moments from many island vacations. You simultaneously show what's so special about the islands and increase the desire to return.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks for listening and your suggestions. I did a remix with new vocals. I tried to get a live sound, a little sloppy, laid back, gonja feel, as if a real reggae band was playing on the beach in Jamaica Ya Mon!

Well, that kept a smile on our faces through the whole song smile

Good vocals and band and the reggae feel is just so joyful.

We've done several reggae productions and they are always fun.

We only heard the remix but it sounds good to us!

Yeah, the new vocal sounds perfect. I can still hear the ganja guy, but it's like he found the mic. Cool song. The harmony is the perfect taste. Love that busy bass, and it has a much better volume. Cool flowing bridge.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Elliott,
You captured the laid back feel very well. Bass and percussion had me bopping.
Out here on the wet coast we get five minutes of sun and folks say - "isn`t this great: another day in paradise"- I like your location and the soundtrack better!

Hi Elliott,

"...I want to live in paradise and live more than survive..." well I think no one will disagree with that, I'm sure!

You made a nice tropical song, with the swell sounding steelband. I used that instrument as well lately in 'the ocean'.
I think you got the 'island- mood'with this one.
Good vocals, a bit sad lyrics, but at the same time it also sounds pretty happy. That's a good mix!

Real holiday vibe.

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!

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."
