"She will never learn the most necessary, most difficult and principal thing in music, that is time, because from childhood she has designedly cultivated the habit of ignoring the beat." Letter to Leopold Mozart (24 October 1777)
Genesis’ song No Son Of Mine modern tempo map illustrates how speed and music interact
The song Supper’s Ready by Genesis was written by bandleader Peter Gabriel during a manic episode. The rest of the band, Tony Banks, Phil Collins, MIke Rutherford, Steve Hackett filled out the rest of the parts.
This is Bruce Sringsteen in his ULTRA-PRIME – Prove It All Night at Passaic NJ – brought to us then by John Sher!
Of the thousands of public online comments, I found MrMaiden321’s to be a fine representation.
“I am 53 yrs old….my brothers who is 13 yrs older than me came home one day in the 70’s w the Born to Run 8 track…we listened to it together…he said…you mark my words Jane…hes gonna b BIG someday….i have been hooked since that warm Summer day when i was 12….i,never let go….MY BOY has gotten me thru the hardest times in my life…i listen to him everyday for 42 yrs…..n when i say…MY BOY….ANYONE WHO KNOWS ME KNOWS I AM TALKING ABOUT THE ONE N ONLY…..THE BOSS!!”
“… with the eyes of one who hates for just being born.” As good as it gets.
“An absolute classic. I’ve seen Bruce 12 times in England, Wales and in the USA, but this is the one song I’ve never seen him do. Will be in Cardiff on July 23rd, so fingers crossed.”
“This is a real beauty! Great video! Tonight tonight the strips just right baby! Yeah”
Speaking of which, since hypersensitivity regarding gender has already ruined comedy temporarily, and Melodyne and autotune have temporarily dulled music by taking the blues out of it, let us not ruin everything!
One year when I was going to Genesis concerts I thought: when the girls say. “Oh, they’re going to play the song that all the girls like,” I kinda knew from playing so much Genesis in public places that women did like this song a lot. [Now there are 60 genders or something, so one can’t say that anymore – just a way people used to speak.]
The reason there are so many musical recordings is that we all respond differently to everything we hear.
Us and Them is a song written and recorded by the members of the band Pink Floyd.
I searched in several places online for a way for Jim Deluva and his band, “The Jim Deluva Cover Boys” to imitate the sound to perfection at a bachelor party they are playing tonight.
Jim is in the driveway – cool. I had told him, “Dude, you should have been able to find a chart my uncle posted a long time ago.”
“I know, dude, I know – can’t find it. I want you to listen to the ride pattern on the cymbal I worked out, anyway. It’s 4 over 3s over 4s – kind of a Phil Collins thing – and Roger and Phil never liked each other, so I want you to hear it.”
