It's past 10 p.m. here, and I've just finished this one. I will now go to bed, and, tomorrow, I will listen to the songs others have been posting whilst I've been busy writing - I promise :-) But ... I thought I'd post this one up before I go to bed ...

It's an homage to silent movie (Charlie Chaplin, foremost) and other such actors (including the modern-day Roberto Benigni, for example), and to dancers such as Fred Astaire, etc. A bygone era that I very much love. Hope you enjoy the song - thank you so much for listening, all feedback welcome!

James,

This does have the flavor of an old movie.
I like the vocal.

OH, excellent!! James is singing ---HAPPILY! I love the entertainment from back then, and you capture the feeling so well. Man, do more of these. You know I really enjoy your "speaking" songs, and it's so nice to hear some this different occasionally. You have a really good voice.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Happy and a great idea.

The old movie vibe is well captured with all aspects of the production.

And we are indeed scat fans!

And the very mention of Fred will have Janice on board smile She's a huge fan.

Most cool!

James, you nailed this one

Super vocal and grove

A great mix

I really enjoyed this one.


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.

Marty: thank you! Yep, finally a happy song from me, after a while ;-)

Vic: thanks!

David: thank you!

Tunemonger: thanks! I didn't think of scat per se when I recorded this, but yes, it is kinda scatty, right? :-)

Scott: thanks!

Janice, Bud: thank you! Fred Astaire was indeed extraordinary. I was envisaging him and Ginger Rogers, for example, dancing with him when I wrote this one :-) One can indeed dream of the ideal dance couple dancing this one out, right? :-)

Mario: thank you!!! Very kind!

PG MUSIC: THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES!

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."
