Super nice song in every respect. Very cool production, the band sounds perfect. Vocals are really, REALLY strong. All this AND a message. Had to listen to it twice. Thanks for posting!

Dan, you keep posting winner after winner after winner.
I liked that ol' time gospel feel in this one.
Outstanding vocal and harmonies.
Outstanding message also.
You all should be very proud of this one.


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

Torrey, Vic and J&B...thanks for having a listen and your comments...though...

Well done,

I'm pretty sure you were commenting on "Resting On the Wind"...I thank you and Gene thanks you...Dan

LOVE the (almost) a Capella intro, that was a great idea and is very well sung!
And again the key-changed chorus...coooool stuff.
Very nice and uplifting vibe.
I like it.
A lot!

Pickin' people up. Yep. that's sounds like a subtest of your life, Dan. You are good at that, and I thank you.

Man, you write good stuff in many genres --all with the knack of pickin' us all up. And The Modulation King comes through everytime.

The harmonies are terrific. The whole song has a good bounce to getting people up and dancing. So, yeah, you can pick 'em up in many ways.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Dan,

I read all the posts here and I can agree with all of them.
But that is not a miracle...
I like this style, the vocals and harmonies as I told you a lot of times.
I enjoyed that break towards the end when you used less instruments. Very nice!
And about the lyrics: picking people up instead of putting people down is the best we can hope for and do.
Especially in these darker days...
So, (again) a very good song from you, Gene and Bob!

Dan,

This is great.

It is my own "golden rule" of sorts. I always tell people that I am coaching that when you are interacting with someone, there can be only one of two outcomes (and it will never be neutral):

1. They will walk away feeler bigger than they were before they talked to you.
2. They will walk away feel smaller than they were before they talked to you.

Those who get #1 most if not all of the time are the most successful people I know, in every way imaginable.

Those who get #2 are the biggest losers I know, and have the most problems in every area of their life.

It really is that simple.

This "golden rule" works as well for the giver as for the receiver.

I tell people if they only get that right, they will usually get almost everything else right too.

J&B, floyd, Peter, Brian, Marty, Hans and David...I am humbled and so very encouraged by all of your comments...thanks for taking the time to respond to this little song and not only commenting on the music but also the message...the simple "golden rule", to do unto others as you would have them do unto you...when it comes to the 'horizontal relationships" we have in this life it is the secret to successful living as David says so well in his comments...you all have shared such great music and I have benefited from it...so I love to give back what others have sewn into my life...I treasure this community of "songsters"...thanks again everyone...Dan

Yep, if everyone thought of practicing good karma to “reap what they sow” the world would be a nicer place.

Another example of fine gospel vocals, tight harmonies, interesting arrangement and a good mix to go along with the gospel lesson.

Well done!

J&B

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!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

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."
