David and Rachel Radio 2.01.23: New Release_WHEN IT RAINS
"They Don't Want Nothing But the Hits, so that's all we're writing."
TM

Hey Y'all,

Here is the latest offering from Rachel and David. We are recording her singing on a bold new tune tomorrow, so that should be ready for next week.

As is our new custom, links to our recently released stuff will be in our weekly updates just for convenience and to eliminate the clutter.

This week’s offering is WHEN IT RAINS. Rachel and I have settled into a really fun rhythm of pure collaboration in terms of idea creation, lyric contribution, song creation, and on the fly modifications. It is a blast. We are having a lot of fun.

WHEN IT RAINS

By Rachel Cintula and David Snyder

V1

Your friends all shine like neon lights,
Out late nights, they don’t seem that bright
Compared to the lightning we were making
and that’s the home you’re now forsaking
But honey I tried to tell you, they’ll eat you alive and leave you
I know because I’ve seen, this world you chose to love is mean


CH

And I gave you all I had to give
Even freedom from the life we lived
I sheltered you from life’s stormy weather
But now that you are free,
Don’t come crying to me,
About your lovers and your pain
And how you wish we hadn’t changed
Yeah don’t come crying to me
When it rains
When it rains
When it rains

V2

You want to be out seeing the sites,
Big invites, climbing to new heights
But I’m no longer waiting,
can’t force your clouded heart into staying

CH

Cause I gave you all I had to give
Even freedom from the life we lived
And I sheltered you from life’s stormy weather
Now that you are free,
Don’t come crying to me,
About your lovers and your pain
And how you wish we hadn’t changed
Yeah don’t come crying to me
When it rains

BR

I’m not going to live with vengeance
Over your washed out heart
I’m going to take a stand against it
So get used to your new start

CH

Cause I gave you all I had to give
Even freedom from the life we lived
And I sheltered you from life’s stormy weather
So now that you are free,
Don’t come crying to me,
About your lovers and your pain
How you wished we hadn’t changed
No don’t come crying to me
When it rains
When it rains

Rachel and David, you have another winner in this one.

Great lyrics. I heard a touch of Dylan in these lines
"Don’t come crying to me,
About your lovers and your pain
How you wished we hadn’t changed
No don’t come crying to me
When it rains". Loved that chorus!

Super vocal and mix.

You two are fantastic together. You collaborate on great lyrics and music plus you both are great singers. I am green with envy!

Great writing in this David. You've got some masterful lines in there. The sound seems off to me in the production though. I don't know how to explain it, but I've listened to it in headphones and speakers, twice each and it keeps happening. The volume keeps varying in waves or pulsating somehow. Maybe something isn't right in my download?

Excellent write and performance!

You two work well together, and there is nothing better than finding a like minded individual to collaborate with in my book, it's what makes it fun.

Looking forward to hearing your new one with Rachel doing the vocal.

Nice!

Nice one. This has the feel of 1960's Bob Dylan in several different aspects.

This is superb in every way. Not much else to say, except CONGRATULATIONS to the both of you. I agree with everyone who said there are shades of Dylan here. You are an authentic musician, David, and it shows in every note you sing. And, in Rachel, it seems you've found a truly worthy collaborator. Bravi, the both of you - truly and fully deserved.

This is pretty cool stuff you and Rachel put out.

Good song, good lyrics, good vocal performance... there's nothing to complain about.

As for the mix, the "wandering" organ drives me nuts. I'd try to find a similar organ, but without the Leslie, because the organ itself works pretty well for the song.

Rain - cool collab...a lot of Dylan references in the delivery of course.
Good narrative too.
How will you keep the edit option alive on the OP of this thread? That will determine the success of the fresh page on the same page concept.


Cheers

Thank you for sharing all that fun with us, David & Rachel. Excellent lyrics, and I always like your vocals, David. This is such a good write. You guys are really good at this collab thing. Instrumentation and mix is perfect. Okay. I'll be back to say this again next week.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Thanks Brad,

Yes it is the B-3. I didn't really notice it until you pointed it out.

Oh well.

It is great to learn about this stuff with the drafts so you can fix before the release.

Thanks!

What is the forum for anyway, right??

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."
