Two Hearts

I wrote and recorded this song two summers ago and shelved it because I thought it was too schmaltzy. Going through my files, I gave it a second listen and decided to put it out here because I rather like the melody.

Lyrics are on Sound Cloud.

Indeed it is a very pretty melody, and very well sung (nice harmonies).

A good song.

Enjoyed it.

I like the soft sixties feel of this - pretty melody for the sad lyrics and the vocal shows you can sing anything. I like your edgier side but the silky smoothness of your vocals here won me over.
A ballad to float away on; well done.

Scott,
Sweet tune. Great set of lyrics and performed very well! Sure, softer than many of your tracks, but that only shows your diversity and skill. Good mix.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Nice song Scott, quite heartfelt and sad but I like it.
You put a great band together.

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Thanks for dusting off your shelf, Scott. Yes, I really like the melody too. I like the easy feel of the band, and your vocal is superb. I don't see any credit for the harmony, but suspect it is not you, although with your vocal talent it is believable.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Scott,

We love sentimental laugh

We were struck by blending of the lead and harmony vocals of this one.
Really good!

Definitely a 60 feel.
I'm glad you pulled this out and posted it.
Great melody and vocal.

Loved it

We’re glad you took this one down from the shelf. The melody is very pretty (and stuck in Janice’s head) and the melancholy lyric is not schmaltzy at all.

Great vocal and such sweet harmonies.

The band suits it so well and the solo guitar is very good.

Find another song from that shelf! smile

SUPERB lyrics. Beautiful singing. Not too schmaltzy for me, I personally loved it. From a "technical standpoint", so to speak: love the way perspective changes. A couple of tears in my eyes, too, I won't deny. Nice guitar solo! A little gem of a song, that I have bookmarked to listen to, again. BRAVO.

Well, if the melody sticks in someone's head, that's a mighty fine compliment. Thanks.

I'm a sentimental fool, so I understand the tears. Thanks for the positive response!

Scott: One of my favorite disc jockies on I-Heart has a great show. She kicks it off by introducing, "Now, here's more sappy love songs.." Of course, it's a joke. She then proceeds to play the most beautiful songs from the 70's and 80's. If she got a hold of this one, I'll bet she'd play it. It is superb -- congratulations!

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."
