Little White Flowers

Little white flowers, on the hillside
Little white flowers they won’t last
They’ll disappear, just like you did, darlin’
Little white flowers they won’t last

Everything has a season
Why should love be any different
Don’t go looking for a reason
Nothing lasts forever, no, no, no

Little white flowers, she wore them in her hair
Big brown eyes were open wide
Little white lies, how they multiply
In the end there’s nowhere left to hide

Everything has a season
Why should love be any different
Don’t go looking for a reason
Nothing lasts forever, no, no, no

Little black dress, high heels and diamond earrings
Still got that picture in my mind
Such a mess, don’t see how to mend it
Wish I could hit stop and rewind

Everything has a season
Nothing stays the same
May as well try to stop the winter
From coming ‘round again, wo-oo-oo

Little white flowers, on the hillside
Little white flowers they won’t last
Disappear, like breath upon a window
Little white flowers they won’t last

Peter, Leon & Janice,

This song is a gem. I absolutely love the song and vocals by Leon and Janice. Really exquisite...

Great guitar fills & solo and the production is perfect.

Such an awesome piece of work.

A very nice song and a great collab.
There's no banjo listed but I think I hear one and really like it whatever it is.

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.

Peter and all:

Cool folksy bluegrass type song. Really like the lyrics here and Janice’s vocals give the chorus the perfect pop it needs. Catchy as well. Like the use of the accordion here—nice touch. Well done, all!

Kind regards,

Oh, man. You know how you can read the album jacket and know right away that you're gonna love what's in it? You, Janice and Leon. Seriously super sounds. I really like the slide. Super write and feel, and those harmonies are so aurally satisfying and tight. Excellent choice on bringing in the second drum track. Suc a treat from start to finish. Well done, Peter, Leon, Janice and Bud.


Enjoy whatever happens!

When Leon, Peter, Janice, and Bud get together I know that I am about to hear some fantastic ear candy.

A real catchy hook.
The perfect vocal, harmony, and lead guitar.
The backing band and mix was perfect.
Loved it.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Janice fits with Leon REALLY well. A touch of sweetner to his slight alkaline tonality.
Very cool song and a wonderful mix.


Cheers

Very creative hook using a tender, short-lived flower as an analogy to love. The lead vocals and melody fit the mood very well. Great job, as usual, by Janice! Also, the guitar hook made the song that much more interesting. Great collaboration.

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

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."
