Survival of the fittest Survival of the fittest
Survival of the fittest That's the law of the land

It's a jungle out there better beware boy
better watch your step
Better take care boy
Back stabbers glad handers look you in the eyes
while the're telling you lies
Better watch your step Gotta watch your step CHOR

Is a cold world out there better take care boy
Got to keep on the move Every step that you take
Every move that you make
Fight fire with fire only play to win don't you ever give in
Stand your ground, but watch your step

MID> It's a game of natural selection
Run with the pack only the strong survive
Take my hand and we'll run
Straight into morning and out forever now

Lead 1x
Fight fire with fire only play to win don't you ever give in
Stand your ground, but watch your step

80s indeed...the intro is dangerous - it was so quiet I reached for the volume & the BAM! Deafness.
Good work with the synth vox.

Elliott, you said "I was going for a 80's Rock Hit ... inspired by Pat Benatar, Heart " and you really nailed it!
One of the best synth vocal songs ever! They sound so real it is scary.
The perfect hair band backing the vocals.
Outstanding mix.
Great effects also!


I just posted a selfie and all of the responses were get well soon!

Elliot, you really nailed the genre in the composition, arrangement and instrument choices. More Pat than Heart to my ears, and I love them both, but that's not a bad thing at all. That guitar break is KILLER! Well done.

Mission accomplished, Elliott. Strong sound. Very full. Man, you are good with those synths. Great melody and quite a range. Hey, the lead break is 100% awesome, too. Very catchy sound.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Hair band galore! Simply stated you nailed every aspect of that vibe.

Your performance 👍🎸 and the synth guys are great. One of the best RD tracks we’ve heard. The lyric is perfecto for the feel.

Nice to see PG Music featured it on Hot Topics.

Kudos,

Hi Elliott.

What a fantastic song and brilliant production!
The Synth V vocals are amazing. They sounded fully real to me.
If you hadn't said that these were vocaloids, I wouldn't have been able to tell.
I love groove. I love the lyrics.
This was a very satisfying musical journey.

Howdy Elliot....

I dig this write and it's a appealing listen, no doubt.
Cool topic, very clean recording and some great axe work, per your usual. smile

TBH....I don't see myself ever using any AI Synth vocals route but this one sure has quite a convincing quality to it.
Pretty amazing.

Very well done, I enjoyed it.

Engaging song from the start on all levels. Though "the fittest" are the species which can best adapt to their changing environments. So humans come in bottom of the class. 

Elliot,

Nice 80's Pop Rock track.
Good work with the girls.
Good mix.
Drums are good - hittin' hard. Nice Bass. I thought the guitars could have be slightly louder.
And fun....

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.
