The difference of course is in that what daily drama series relies on: we, the viewer, have no idea when the story is ever ending, or if it is ever ending. Unlike knowing a movie is two hours, and knowing a book ends on the last page, daytime drama, could, Tootsies-style, stop on a proverbial dime. It could also go on another thousand years. Even Shakespeare wrote in soap opera form. Charles Dickens honed his craft on: the soap operas of his time. A Tale Of Two Cities was one of many books originally written as “soap operas.”

Dylan to Hootie, “I Only Want Be With You, Too, But you Stole My Song” | legal declassified tempo chart

I’m with Hootie here. Being tangled up in a color is not an idea one can own. It is beautiful art on Bob’s part. He hardly invented the idea of feeling like a color, like, uh, the blues.

“James”, “The First Circle”, Pat Metheny Group Matherton Tempo Diagrams

James and The First Circle tempo illustrations by Rudy and Tucker.

The song The First Circle by the Pat Metheny Group,  in particular this live version from their album called One From the Road has Been recognized by many people in the music industry as music simply too original to be pigeonholed. .  As a gues on jazz albums, Pat with any group was able to sell at the level of  pop musicians of their time.  The difference between that Metheny group and the pop musicians was that  The PMG’s  better songs develop over 7-10 minutes – pieces where attention that many escape in to, many have not heard yet.
