“Tell my wife I am trolling Atlantis! And I still have my hands on the wheel. Ah, yo!” – unclassified probable median tempo chart – BILLY JOEL. ‘Downeaster Alexa’

Ita me habere potui Downeaster “Alexa”
Et quo ad Oceanum est abyssi
Sunt gigantum reputata est et in canyons
Et optimus imperator non laberetur in somnum
EGO got laoreet reddere atque necessarium filios et vestimenta sua
Scio enim de illic ‘pisces: sed ubi? Dominus solus novit,
Dicunt isti quod aquae non sunt, esse solebat,
Sed surrexit populi mei super terram quis numerare

Billy Joel was born and raised on Long Island, New York, United States.

As one who exudes empathy in his songs, in DOWNEASTER ALEXA he sings about the once reliable lifestyle of the hardworking fisherman who cannot fish as they once did because of pollution and overfishing in the “overkill”.

The lyrics, legally for hobby and personal use in latin –

Bene ego sum, et in Downeaster “Alexa”
Et Ego in illo uagari Clausus Island Novum
Scilicet ego et charted ad vineam pullum
At ego hac nocte Nantucket vinctum
Non tulit retro pellentesque ex hesterno die in Montauk
Hac mane a bell reliquit in Gardiners Bay
Ut omnis hie locus est vendere Ego quoque mea
Superbus est discedere, et digitos meos ad os operatur

Downeaster Alexa - JOEL
Bily Joel -Downeater Alexa –

Ita me habere potui Downeaster “Alexa”
Et quo ad Oceanum est abyssi
Sunt gigantum reputata est et in canyons
Et optimus imperator non laberetur in somnum
EGO got laoreet reddere atque necessarium filios et vestimenta sua
Scio enim de illic ‘pisces: sed ubi? Dominus solus novit,
Dicunt isti quod aquae non sunt, esse solebat,
Sed surrexit populi mei super terram quis numerare

Ergo si vidisti me Downeaster “Alexa”
Et si vos opus cum virga, et turbabuntur
Dic mihi uxor mea certare sumperiphorais ad Atlantis,
Et etiam Ego got manus super rotam

Yay, O
Yay, O
Yay, O
Yay-o-Yay

Nunc mea eiciam Downeaster “Alexa”
Quotannis ferme plus fluctibus
Cum autem ad me non possum vendere non stripers
Hie et illic ‘nulla fortuna in swordfishing
Pater esset in conspectu meo: sicut et ego bayman
Non potes facere vivos sicut iam bayman
Non est multum in posterum, qui operatur in mare
Nulla relicta insula non me tamen insulanorum

Eminem Martika Toy Soldiers

Modern artists Eminem produced his own recording using a borrowed sample from the song.

E – I do not know if you are using a drug that is making your face look like you are looking weak.  It’s your life, as YOU would say.

Here’s creativity compliment as to where you really got it SPOT ON.  I also want to make you think about some drugs that are around that kill.

The song: WITHOUT ME.  It sounds like you are bragging.  Sure, if one did not know that – put it this way, if Eminem had been born [black] he would be known as the best rapper that has ever been, hands down. I have heard many more rap and hip hop songs with “black” people trying to jump on Eminem’s unique talent for a creativity in phrasing assertions that sound alike Eminem.

All is fair! Who was better Chuck Berry or The Byrds?  Answer: neither one!  They were both uniquely fantastic musicians.

Here’s a secret that Eminem got from The Godfather of Should, Dr. Rev the late GREAT JAMES BROWN: in a 4/4 piece of music, if you feel and know were the AND ONE (usually located earlier, as FOUR AND), you pass.  There is a phrase that every musician (everyone is a musician if they want to be – a piano can be learned in a day) has etched in her or his brain:

“Always know where the ONE is. If you have that you are halfway there.” – the fantastic drummer and percussionist Carter Beauford of the Dave Matthews Band

“[If I stop and anyone in my band does not know where the ONE is, they are out of the band. Not a personal thing, man! Life happens as you HIT the one with the sweetest harmonic sound as a new melody is played on a harmonic rhythm.]” – James Brown

An excellent use of the term “Backstreets” as used in American suburbs | unclassified tempo map of Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band 1970s song

There is an enthusiasm throughout that song that though Bruce and his love interest aren’t what we would call today “rich”, life was pretty damn good driving around freely on hidden backstreets at night just being with people you liked.

Yesterday the writers at the Young and the Restless used the American suburb term “backstreets” in a way Bruce Springsteen did when he wrote about the streets of New Jersey.

About A Girl – Nirvana – img=matherton tempo map

When Nirvana plays this song on MTV’s UNPLUGGED, Kurt Cobain says in plain language – “[This is a song of ours], most people don’t own it.”

Ownership and music and the downfall of the creatives hears an argument here.

Grey Street | Dave Matthews band | live Central Park | median expected tempo map

grey-street-dave-matthews-tempo-map-matherton-diagram

The song Grey Street was performed by the Dave Matthews Band in Central Park New York City only ONE time.

The diagram as a median tempo guide is pretty accurate, but you have to listen to the rhythm section groove to “get” the rhythm as a whole.

Eleven years plus since LeRoi died and this song makes me appreciate hime almost more than any other.
