Het Ei (The Egg)
This is a cover of the song "Het Ei" (The Egg) by the Dutch singer-songwriter Jaap Fischer, a boy with a guitar, nothing more.
But he was very popular in the 60's, because of the lyrics of his songs.
They were always humourous, but often also cynical, painful or crude.
And each song told a complete story.
After having heard "Het Ei", I have never been able to fry an egg without thinking of this song.
The English translation is at the bottom of the video.
WARNING:
It is possible that, having heard the song and seen the video, you'll never thoughtlessly fry an egg again!

This SOUNDS great - the narrative - well, it's confronting but so it ought as should every time we reach for animal protein.
COOL & COOL.

Very nice production. The medium picking campfire style perfectly fits the song. As always I enjoy hearing Anne-Marie's singing.

An interesting song and video. I'm not much of an egg-eater - and now I have another reason to be so!

Much enjoyed!

Take care,

Alan

Hoi Anne-Marie en Rob,

Wat een geweldig lied! En hoe jullie kwanen tot dit onderwerp is mij nog steeds een raadsel.
This means: What a great song! And how you came to this subject is still a mystery to me.
I enjoyed it all about that talking egg.
But you know? Baking eggs will never be the same for me...
And I'm already having a hard time. I have two vegetarian sons...

But what a nice song, and what nice vocals!
I really enjoyed this cheerful/sad song.

Hans

Hi, Rob and Anne-Marie,

Nicely done. With your warning, I was able to guess the ending. smile

Of course, the eggs sold in stores are unfertilized, but why let that get in the way of a story? wink

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

The last image was worrying.
Well done Rob and Anne.

Wow, this is something very interesting to investigate. I haven't heard of The Egg, but he sounds like fun. If this song is anything like what he would produce, I'm in. Man, you, Rob and Anne-Marie are really good at this --and well, eeryuthing you do. It was so short with so much to absorb that I listened 3 times to grasp it all. Each one was very rewarding. Thanks.


Enjoy whatever happens!

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!

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."
