*******************


Even though I miss you
I can live without your love
Even though without you
I'll do fine on my own

Even though I long to feel you
close to me again
we could not be again
What we once were to each other

Even though I want you
I can live without your love
Even though without you
the days are short and the nights are longer

Even though I'll miss the moments
in a night of loving you
a night of holding you I will do fine without you

Even though I reach for you
when the beds unfriendly and cold
Even though I dream of you not having you there to hold
Even though I'll miss tomorrow and a life of loving you
We would not be again What we once were to each other

Now now I'm on my own Now that I'm alone I'll be alright
Now Darkness disappear
You're no longer here
I will get by with out you

Now I don’t need nobody now
I don’t need know one to be needing me
I don’t need nobody now Now now now no-ow

Elliot, enjoyable tune! Not my genre, but I could feel it move my feet. That's the point, right? Very credible vocal performance too, except that last held high note was...weird sounding. Cool lyrics. FWIW, the sung vocals do not match the posted lyrics, although I had no problems figuring out the lyrics. Nice work! Know this must take a lot of effort. Amazing what these tools can do to bring our musical ambitions to life.

Elliott, Very clever intro and break - brilliant
You really captured that disco groove.
Outstanding synth vocal and drums!
Super mix
Outstanding ending

Loved it

PS - The only thing missing is a video of John Travolta dancing!

About 100% NOT of what I usually listen to, but it's really well produced and (as far as I can tell) reflects the vibe of the genre well.
My only nit is that this weird off-beat guitar (or the rusty hammer or whatever it is) starts to get annoying after a while.

Hey, that's really cool, Elliott. Great job on the synth vocal. I really like the idea of female empowerment. Well done.

The only thing I know of disco is the Harry Niillson/ Ringo Star song, How Long Can Disco On. But this song would convert me for sure. It seems to have interesting changes that I wouldn't think were disco. The bass drum is not hitting all quarters throughout. Let's call this a new genre. Good. The melody drives it. Really well written. Much enjoyed.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Elliot,
Good tune. Good balance between vintage feel and modern techniques / groove. Clear mix and listens well. Thank you for sharing.
Misha.

P.S. I do have a soft spot in my heart for bands like ABBA, Boney M, etc. smile

Hi, Elliot.

Love the retro groove, vocal works nicely - especially when the chorus kicks in.

Nice work! smile

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

Elliot,

An excellent arrangement/production. A good understanding of how-to-produce-Pop-music.
Very cool Drums.
The high-eq shcwsh sound is Really distracting in my speakers.
Nice vocals.
A solid mix (notwithstanding that swqsh sound...)

Catchy. Catchy. Catchy.
And that's what it's all about...

Much enjoyed.

I enjoyed your song. Upbeat, clear, and just around nice job.
I thought i was going to hear you sing, but a ladies voice. so that was shocking at first. but I read you are the writer, so i get it.
the words did not match what your friend was singing. But still fun song.
Nice job. Happy New Year, cheryl anne

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.

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."
