You're Driving Me Out Of Your Mind on Soundcloud
You're Driving Me Out Of Your Mind on YouTube


Four days ago I remmebered that I have a new album released today, and I never even posted all the videos to YT or all the songs to SC, let alone post them here for your feedback. So here's one from there. Your critique is always the most important part for me. I like to create, but I'm not much of a promoter.

File:You're Driving Me Out Of Your Mind.SGU
Key=E , Tempo 78, Length (m:s)=3:32

Dave Bell, AKA Blue Attitude, played guitar and I sang and played bass.

You're Driving Me Out Of Your Mind
When we first met I was sure you're the one,
but now I know I don't know.
It could be something you said that took away the fun,
but somehow we lost that glow.
You seem to have a new license for driving me out of your mind.

There was that time we both knew we would last,
but now those mem'ries will fade.
We used to coast down love's highway,
but now you drive right passed all the plans we made.
You seem to take a free pass. Your driving me out of your mind.

There were no road signs, We had it all. We were on a roll.
We seemed to be flying.
We had a ball, and now you won't pay the toll.

We had good times, but we knew they would end.
I s'ppose we'll both move along.
Ev'rytime that I see you, I hope we'll still be friends,
and I'll hear our favorite song
You seem to've change your direction.
You're driving right out of my mind.

Marty, that’s a good hook. I like the chord choices and Dave plays a solo custom made for the tune. The bass sounds good as does the mix. Best of luck with the album release, Tom

Marty,

I've been wondering for a long time how that happened.

You have a way of singing with a smile in your voice - even in heartbreak.
The Marty Bass and Dave Guitar go together like ice cream and Hershey's syrup. Yummm.

Good mix.
Good music.
Look out Billboard!

I know you are a very positive thinking person, but it still always makes me smile that even negative lyrics sound positive when sung by you.
Stay that way, whatever happens smile

Oh, and yeah, I like what you and Dave did, no question, this must to be on the album!

Thanks, Floyd! I'm still wondering WHAT happened. smile No heartbreak here --I think the singer was glad that dog was barking up another tree.

Thank you, Peter. No question that Dave is always my favorite part of my songs. I've thrown him curves, fastballs and even sTinkers, and he always hits it out of the park.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hi Marty,

Two days ago (I think) I listened to Give me something and now you gave me this one.
You can deliver fast, man!
And also a very good one. You know what I think of your voice and you did it again.
Dave was also very present with his marvelous solo play!
The lyrics were kind of fun, the way you described your tragic lovestory.
Luckily you found Barb...
And what a very nice video.
Enjoyed it all,

Hans

Hi Marty.
There you go, enjoying yourself again.
Well done with that title, bass and lead guitar.
Not sure if it's too much reverb or not enough volume on the vocal.
It seems a little distant.

Good one

Blues at its finest Marty. Excellent vocal and lyric. Loved Dave's guitar lines. Bass lines carried the groove song. Really well done

Marty And Dave ...

You gentlemen make some great sounds!

Everything sits exactly where it should. Dave's guitar, as always, is a perfect fit. Your vocal is a pleasure to my ears. Two extraordinary musicians making extraordinary music. What a cool listen!

Best to both of you.

Super blues groove on this! Nice lyrics and catchy hook, too. Love the twists on the traditional blues progression. Bass and guitar lines are very fine and drive the music, as they should. BiaB parts sound great and the whole song is well mixed. Another hit! Best of luck with your album!! Ron

Thanks, Brain. Most of my songs are not about me, and I need to adapt the vocal to be "that" guy. Seems I'd never make it as an actor because I keep too much of me in my charachters.

Thanks, Hans. Yeah, I remembered that I scheduled the album to be released, and realized I didn't have all the songs posted on YT yet. So I dumped the missing 4 (of which this is one) real quick. Thanks for being there with me.

Marty,
very cool vocal on a very cool song with an excellent narrative/word twist.

Dave did a fabulous job as usual.
A really well constructed and mix recording too.

There's seems to be a tiny bass hesitation, or so it seems to me, at 0.49. I noticed it becasue i always listen closely to your bass playing & tone - so I can steall an idea or seven.


Cheers

Thanks, Vic. My blood type is B positive, but the lack of quality you hear in the vocal is probably the vocalist.

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."
