Introversion

This song is bit different than my usual fair: Somewhat of experimentation for me. The song is about being an introvert in a society that has extrovert expectations. Those who tilt more toward the introvert side will understand.

Lyrics

There’s nothing wrong with me
Need no sharing and no fixing
Give me time to think
Time to look and time to listen

Stop the noise, the cacophony pours
I’ve had enough for today
Please let me slip out the door
Sometimes I need to fade away

Can’t be want I’m not to be
I’m not humble; I’m not proud
Cyclone scarred placidity
I’m in my mind; I’m out of the crowd

Stop the noise, the cacophony pours
I’ve had enough for today
Please let me slip out the door
Sometimes I need to fade away

Scott,

This is great. Excellent lyrics and a wonderful vocal. Very reminiscent of Harry Chapin.

I love the production and tracks - just an awesome song all around!

You're singing is with power and conviction

It sounded almost like something that I would hear in a play or a Rock opera

Good use of backing tracks, mix and production is real good too

This is great man.
A strong write, great band and superb vocals.
Reminded me a bit of David Bowie.

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.

This has all the hallmarks of a classic showtune.
Opening song in the theatre production I'm In the Out Crowd.
Rich, well pitch voice with lyric & melody paced for clarity and understanding.

Nice one.


Cheers

Yes, I can understand the message, "please let me slip out the door/Sometimes I need to fade away" I know the feeling. Very interesting arrangement and together with exciting chord progression, create a dark musical feel, rock opera like Tommy. Excellent vocals, very powerful and even operatic in places. Very successful experimentation.

I really enjoyed your song. The chord changes were very powerful and melodic. I though you sounded a bit like David Bowie in some sections of your song and I mean that as a compliment. The last verse really builds up and the song ends strongly. Well done!

Dermot

Ezekiel,

As one of the aforementioned introverts, the song totally resonates. Love the introduction and terrific use of the strings. But your vocal just slays on this one . . . really compelling, full of angst. I’m not sure what that flute like sounding instrument is . . . but nice production touch there. Love how the drums and heavy guitar come in on that chorus. The arrangement overall is impressive . . . e.g., how that chorus then reverts back into the verse . . . good stuff. This is definitely on of my favorites from you—just excellent!!

Hope all is well in your world,

Deej

Bob, Elliott, Bass Thumper, Ray, Peter, Janne, Dermot, Deej, Mario, and Andi:

Thanks for listening. I didn't know what genre the song was, but when some of you said "show tune," I realized, "Yeah, that's it." I guess performing in musicals back in the day has had some influence on me.

Deej,

The flute is from Native Instruments Lores (via keyboard).

Yep.... That backing track is absolutely gorgeous and luscious. Love those NI synths.

I'm with Ray. This is a good show tune. I can see the misunderstood male character on stage singing this.

Bravo!

“The cacophony pours” … indeed.

This is very different but also very engaging and the dynamics are awesome.

It sounds very theatrical/cinematic and your vocal is very powerful.

Excellent lyric and band also.
And a fine mix.

Excellent all the way around!

What a tune
Something from 60's 70's . Two names came to my mind :Lennon and Bowie.

Yeah this is awesome Scott.

Reminds me of King Crimson, a little.

But totally you, and a wonderful sound. It may well be my favorite from you.

Superb brother.

The hypnotic opening is very promising, and when your vocal comes in the promise is fulfilled. Hey, I'd say this experiment was a fruitful success, Scott. Very cool lyrics and the melody with a lot of space is very engaging, like when someone speaks and we all strain to listen to the rest of the sentence. Well worth the strain. Really creative work, Scott.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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.
