The horns aren't perfect on this, but I did the best I could do. Sam Efford of fiverr handled the vocal.

Lyrics:

I've lost my way, no place to play in Loveland
The games afoot but I've been hobbled here
I must admit, no fun is it in Loveland
When you're alone and there's nobody near

I'd love to take off running, chasing somebody to woo,
But you're not here, will you appear? Alakazam! It's you!

It's magic and fun, with more than one, in Loveland,
But when you're alone, what a sad affair

SOLO

I'd love to take off running, chasing somebody to woo,
But you're not here, will you appear? Alakazam! It's you!

It's magic and fun, with more than one, in Loveland,
But when you're alone, what a sad affair

T.M...This is a step into the "way back machine"...this is such a great sounding piece of music...so well written and though Sam did a stellar job on the vocals I would love to hear Tony Bennet do this one!...great, great melody and so '40's sounding...this is the best I've heard BiaB horn section sound! I love the title and hook...this belongs on vinyl for sure!!

Beautiful song!

Hi TuneMonger,

I love this song - right up my alley.

Great melody and lyrics.

Excellent vocals. I note he sounds a little tentative in the first verse (I know the feeling) but really gets into it from the first chorus to the end.

Superb backing.

I've listened three times and it gets better with each listen.

Made my day.

Best Regards
Nigel

Sounds great to me, cool old school vibe with both the music and the lyric.

Horns sounded good to me, and your vocalist did a fine job.

Listened yesterday and also a couple of times this morning, really well-done in all aspects IMHO.

Love this, Bob!! Man, the chord changes and melody and the way you arranged the orchestra is perfect. Good choice of vocalist. The mix is Goldilocks good, and the horns work just fine.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Well, as evidenced by Peter and Janice’s last song, she loves this big band style song. smile

Your vocalist is a fine crooner and the band, including the horns, sounds great.

We can see the protagonist sitting alone at a corner table watching the other couples dance.
In an old B&W film of course. smile

And a nice write.

Kudos!

not my genre , but certainly i think its a lovely and well done song imho.

it reminds of a sultry 3 am bar in soho london.
(makes me remember some crazy nites of my youth...lol.)

if i can make a suggestion ..in my mind i heard a female vocal alernating verses with your male vocal verses..
imho that would send the song flying.


well done mate.

happiness.

Oh yeah!!! Great composition. I love the big band sound. You picked a good vocalist and got your money's worth. I picture people at the dance hall in a black and white film. Again, great song! Loved it.

Nice one...managing horn sections in BIAB is hard yakka but you've done a good job.
The band works well.
The vocalist let a few sibilant bits through but it isn't bad.
Nice one.


Cheers

Flashback to old big band jazz

Great vocal

Excellent work with those horns

Super mix

Great work

The lyrics are perfect for the genre; especially that "Alakazam"- shows you`ve done your homework and know those crooners well.
The singer gets into the mood and the band ( including those rarely heard horns) sound good to me.
Evocative and well crafted music.

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.

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."
