Summary of lyrics

While many seasons pass me by
I have been looking for your trace
And now I am counting stars scattered in the night sky

Why had I encountered with you
Though there were millions of people in the world
And, why my heart is still tied with you

In spring we kissed cherry blossoms fluttering lightly
In summer we gave cold drops to moisturize our burned skins

How bright our lives were shining
What a coincidence our encounter was
What should I call it if it was not love

In autumn I will dance waltz alone with my tears
In winter I will need some one’s hot breaths to my frozen cheeks

Who am I wandering over seasons to go by
I am an eternal traveler in pursuit of impossible love

Wow, that's a lively, fun run through the jungle.
Sensational vocals and arrangement.
My only nit is that the solo horn at the intro don't sound quite real.
Otherwise absolutely fabulous.


Cheers

A dynamic and fast paced production ,a little more dynamic than what we normally hear from you.

Quite enjoyable.

Love the changes, Shigeki. What a wonderfully snappy song. An interesting diversion from what I've come to expect from animarorecords, and it shows your wonderful musical diversity. Natsuki delivers a soaring vocal in this outstanding production. I'm not sure --it might be me-- but I hear a low rumble during the solo. Man, I love that bass.

Shigeki Adachi,

This is a pretty cool song with a nice drive, and I think the way you put in the solos sounds really authentic.
Good singer, too.
And the mix is of your usual high standard.
Very well done!

Hi, Shigeki.

I always enjoy your songs.

This is upbeat and punchy. Excellent singing by Natsuki and I really like the brass section.

As rayc noted, the solo trumpet sounded synthetic, and more so because everything else sounded so real in comparison.

Still, great work! laugh

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

Shigeki, a super swing song.
Natsuki is a great singer.
Super backing tracks and mix.
Outstanding bass line.

Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

Hi Shigeki Adachi.

Wow!!! This is action-paced music! It reminds me of the Big Band era of jazz. You've done an amazing job. When I closed my eyes, I could see everyone performing on stage because it was so realistic.In addition, Natsuki's singing was incredible. She's a world-class vocalist. I'm in awe of your musical ability. You truly are a gifted songwriter and musical arranger.

All the very best,
--Noel

rayc,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune, Natsuki's vocal and my arrangement.
Thank you for pointing out the solo trumpet.
Expressing solo trumpet with MIDI is more difficult than expressing brass section, so I would like to make it my future challenge.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.

Marty,

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am really glad you like this tune and Natsuki's vocal.
You are truly a seasoned bassist. You can immediately hear the bass line.
The rumble in the background of the guitar solo is the sound of the drummer hitting the bass tom.
I am always very encouraged by your kind words.

Best regards.

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."
