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!

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

Scott, this is an outstanding show tune!

Outstanding vocal, lyrics, instrumentation, and mix.

Loved that flute at the end!

IMHO your best to date.

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!

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?

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."
