Had this crazy melody and some lyrics in my head. They came from the usual place –wherever that is. I knew it had to be Dixieland, and BiaB was more than ready to accommodate.

Key=A , Tempo 151, Length (m:s)=2:07
4 bar intro, 72 bar chorus, from bar 5 to bar 76. Repeat x1 chorus
Style is _DIXIELD.STY (Dixieland Rhythm Section)

RealTracks in style: ~1616:Tuba, DixielandFast Sw 165 ('A' only)
RealTracks in style: ~1615:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm DixielandFast Sw 165
RealTracks in style: ~1614:Guitar, Acoustic, Rhythm DixielandFast Sw 165
RealTracks in style: ~1613:Banjo, Tenor, Rhythm DixielandFastA-B Sw 165
RealTracks in song: ~1619:Clarinet, Soloist DixielandFast Sw 165
RealTracks in song: ~1624:Trombone, Soloist DixielandFast Sw 165
RealDrums in style:Dixieland^2-a:Brush LH Drag, b:Brush Ride

I played bass and sang.

[eye say you owe me} was the rhyming pattern I used. Get it?

My, My

My, my, oh, my, my. I can't lie for your alibi.
You'll just have to satisfy the time that's due.
You say, "That's okay. I'm not busy anyway.
All my debts I gotta pay for crimes. That's true."

Boo-hoo, you drew a clue. Now you know just what to do
as your life is going through this change. You'll see.
Oh, no, just take it slow. Don't get lost in the undertow.
All the weeds forever grow in rains so free.

CiCi, she can see all the glee that's surrounding me.
She knows they will set you free from wrong. That's right.
Bye-bye. Don't you cry. Wipe those tears from your crying eyes. All the days you'll realize are long. Good night.

Marty,

Love it! You really nailed that Dixieland swing/rock sound. Great vocal and fun lyrics.

Excellent work!

Bob

Edited to say: I just watched the video - very cool!

Dixieland suits your voice really well! Great instrumental choices. Something odd happened in the outro. You might want to revisit that part in BIAB.

Thanks, Bob. Seems a Dixieland clarinet is always swimming around in my head.

Thanks, Dewey. Not sure I hear any anomalies in the outro --just what sounds like a bunch of drunken jazz players doing an after-hours session.

Hi Marty
That's something completely different ;-)
But why not
Sounds very good in any case and your singing sounds also good to it
Dave must have been sad that there was nothing for him to do in the song ;-))))
A great production
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Mr. "Enjoy whatever happens" again smile

I think you could sing about a funeral and still make it fun and entertaining.
Enjoyed my listen. A lot.
And listened a second time for good measure

Thank you, Andi. I'm pretty sure that only I would be the sad one. Dave is always gracious when I ask him to make my songs better, but I'm sure he's grateful that I don't once in awhile. wink

Ah, another fan of the clarinet. Thanks, Ray. The tuba was just playing his usual 5ths, so I had to jazz it up a bit.

Thanks, Nigel!! Mixing those horn guys was a bit challenging.

What a cool groove Marty. Loved the bounce to the tune. Trombone and clarinet were a perfect add to the tune. Super vocal and lyric. Well done.. Loved the video...

Thanks, BD. Hey, ya know what's funny. I was writing some lyrics yesterday and was going to ask you if they were correct. Ha. I guess that's how much I think of your English abilities. Thanks for everything.

Thanks, Dan. Now I would like to live in NOLA for all the musical variety, and ya know they can always use another Elvis.

Very Cool song. I could picture Al Jolson doing that song in the first talky picture.. LOL
Your vocal fits the style perfectly. Production is great full without being over the top
Very nice job

Hahahaha - grinning from ear to ear! Brilliant! The bass is wonderful, the melodies are fun, your singing is on point ... and I'm dancing like there is no tomorrow! Reminds me of Baloo's "The Bare Necessities", from "The Jungle Book" ;-) - and that's a MAJOR compliment :-) Superb.

Fun, fun video!!! Much darker lyrics than the tune suggests, am I right? ;-) Superb job, the juxtaposition of those darker lyrics to the dancing tune is seamlessly done. Hats off to you, sir - bravo.

Marty,

Sweet set of Realtracks you expertly put together here! Love the way your musical mind works! Your bass work in this is phenomenal! You were hitting more notes than McCartney did in Nowhere Man! Love Your vocal, always makes me smile! Your positivity and encouragement to others around here is one of the best things that's happened to this forum in recent years!

Take care, TB

Marty,

What a fun listen that was . . . Going dixieland on this was a moment of inspiration . . . just the perfect mood and feel for this lyric and your vocal shines. A toe-tapper for sure. Very cool!

Hope all is well in your world,

Deej

This is a classic Marty composition. Very upbeat and optimistic.

I love the style. It works well with the melody and lyrics. A step back in time.

Bass line is primo!

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!

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."
