I Know It's Wrong

I know it's wrong but it feels so right. You can't be seen with me.
We don't belong together in this light. We can't let others see.
You know it's dangerous. I know it's wrong.
We know attraction could be so strong.

I know it's wrong but you look so good. But looks will never last.
I know we shouldn't, but you know we could.
And life can change so fast.
You know we're strangers. I know it's wrong.
I'd seek forgiveness, but she'd be long gone.

Where would I be if she would say goodbye
and I lose the love we made?
How could I ever look her in the eye
and confess the sin that I have strayed?

Some say it's wrong --these old fashion ways.
Most think I should give in.
But don't prolong your teaseing phase, and in the end I'll win.
You must keep moving. I must go home
where I won't be alone.

Marty,

Love this! What a great song. It has a similar swagger like the old Elvis song "Reconsider Baby".

Your vocal and bass are awesome and Dave sounds great as usual.

Great, great stuff!

Very cool Marty, VERY.
The only nit is that there's a click or plectrum on string noise at about 13 seconds that jumped out at me...no one seems to have noticed but it may be worth addressing.
You are the Ace of Basses.
COOL stuff.


Cheers

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Nice solid blues. Well put together and a easy listen. Some of the lead inserts seemed a bit brittle (harsh) but that is probably mostly my headphones. Maybe try and duck those a little behind the vocals? JMHO!!!! Lead break is awesome.

Thanks, Bob Dean. Yeah, that was my swaggering cowboy voice. He has morals though.

Man, you have gifted ears, Ray. I never noticed it. It must be the bass. Thanks for dealing that trump card. Coming from you it's a HUGE statement. I have a song nearly ready where you really really helped me lay down the right Reggae track.

Thank you, David! Now I'm smelling smoke around the campfire while we're all kicking out the Blues.

Yep. A happy ending. Thank you, floyd. Always a smile when reading your comments. Thanks so much. I'm not a vocalist. When I sing a song I seem to get in character or something. That's my weathered cowboy. He appeared in a couple others. I have one in the hopper where I reach a Bb(1), where I thought only Vic Arnold could go.

Hey, thanks so much for the suggestion, Rick. In fact it was Dave who gave me the way to solve the problem. I was just gonna say the guitar is much more valuable, in my opinion, but I am learning. Thanks again. man. Much appreciated.

Hi Marty and Dave,

You have a very nice timbre in your (lower) vocals in this delicious Blues, Marty!
I like that sound.
Dave plays the stars from heaven. Altogether a delicious Blues as I said.
And I saw that black Queen was cheating terribly. I think the other side was distracted by your song.
Must be.

But other than that deception, I didn't notice anything wrong with the lyrics. So the title left me confused... ;-)

Marty, blues at it absolute best.
Outstanding vocal and lyrics.
You are one heck of a song writer and bassist.
Everyone knows Dave plays the heck out of that guitar.
Loved it.

PS - What a queen moving diagonally the making a left hand turn onto a different color square in not the Queen's Gambit?

Hi Marty,

very vaporous composition with a very beautiful guitar solo. It's pleasant and the lyrics are well written.

Thank you, Peter! Man, I've been listening a lot to the J&B Public Domain albums, and you are quite amazing on them. No surprise, but still...

Hi Hans. AH, you noticed the queen's gamble. It's surprising her opponent didn't, but not likely my song is to blame. The title says it all. It's about the queen's move. I (we) Know It's Wrong.

Oh yeah, good slinky blues!

You sing the heck out of this, Marty and your bass is, as always, buttery smooth. Dave’s solo and fills capture the emotion within the lyric.

We enjoyed the video and noticed something new each time we watched. Also both of us had a chuckle when we saw that “tempting” apple.

And yea for the happy ending for the couple!

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."
