Hi All,

You know I need the rain today
Gonna cleanse my blues away
Give it slow and get it done
Hey now girl
Am I the one

I can't watch the news today
Gonna turn it off turn it away
Give it light under the sun
Hey now girl
Am I the one

We don't hold more than today
Gonna push our cares away
Give them chase and make them run
Hey now girl
Am I the one

You know I need the rain today
Gonna cleanse my blues away
Give it slow and get it done
Hey now girl
Am I the one

Give it slow and get it done
Hey now girl
Am I the one
Give it slow and get it done
Hey now girl
Am I the one

Bob,

Can't imagine how anything about this could be any better.

Good lyric, good vocal, good BAND, good production, good mix.

A lot of the TV shows we watch these days have current "alt" type music playing during some scenes and at the end when the credits roll....
This could EASILY be used for that.

I read the lyrics first and then the instruments and saw a couple dance tracks listed. Got a little worried but as soon as I heard the song start, I was assuaged. Classic Bob Dean. A real pleasure to get on the forum page and find a new song of yours waiting. Makes my day. Great work as always.

YEP!! That's what I say --especially about the "credit song" thing. Really good song on all of those levels, Bob.


Enjoy whatever happens!

This classic you.
The drums don't seem to fit to my ears...perhaps to forward in the mix or too present.
Nice progression and melody.


Cheers

I like the song and your vocals, and the production is pretty good.

I would prefer the vocals to be less "in your face" to better fit the atmosphere of the rest of the band, but that's just a personal preference.

I noticed while listening that I'm always waiting for something that doesn't happen.
I think the song structure with 5 verses (and 2 acoustic interludes) would benefit from a chorus to satisfy the waiting.

I like this song, Bob!

I agree with Floyd: I can hear this song as credits roll at the end of a show.

Production sounds mighty good. I like the guitar at the start and the build as the song progresses.

Brilliant, brilliant. I loved it. Made me a little more upbeat than I was before listening to it. And if you can do that with music (no matter whether the song is happy or sad), you've done your job, I think. Bravo. Going back for a second listen now :-) Thanks for sharing :-)

Great production Bob! I liked it all the way through. I thought you did a fantastic job of building the instruments right from the beginning. The guitars sounded really good and I thought you chose a really good drum track to carry it through. Your use of the steel was stellar. It presented a sound that really sticks in your head. Thanks for posting.

Hey Bob,

I really enjoyed this with your signature style as an artist.

I don't agree with the comment that asked for a chorus. As this is folk and singer-songwriter, you have both the right and a huge latitude to focus on the vibe and the feeling, which you have done and which is your forte.

Also, the vocals are the highlight of the song, also part of your signature, and don't need to be different in any way.

I am about call to Dylan to tell him he needed a better chorus in Blowin' in the Wind, and it would sound better if he had used an artificial female robot vocalist for the vocals, and a sound that sounded a little more like Duran Duran, with more bass-y stuff.

Never stop being yourself man.

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."
