The Speed of Joy, “Isn’t She Lovely?” | Stevie Wonder | unclassified tempo map, video embed

Whenever I think of the joy of a new life, it is very often that the Stevie Wonder classic “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” comes into my focus.

While working on the patent, I was asked by the government for $350 to keep a trademarked name on which I had made no money. I hadn’t tried to make money – that wasn’t the point of the trademark.

This is a chart that was not classified, then after my brain aneurysm I realized my images were disorganized and some that were unclassified had become part of a patent.

While working on the patent, I was asked by the government for $350 to keep a trademarked name on which I had made no money. I hadn’t tried to make money – that wasn’t the point of the trademark.

Anyway, I let it lapse. After the aneurysm, my priorities didn’t change very much insofar as my wanted to show how the speeds of the classic pop-rock songs were played. I make sure these charts are accurate.

Never do I fool myself that the speed is way third in importance to the melody and the harmony, and even the timbre. That said, the simplicity of what I noticed to be patterns have yet to be acknowledged by anyone with a real name in a real place.

Here Comes The Sun by the Beatles is one of the most difficult measurements I have done, with only “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Stairway To Heaven” more difficult.

One of the most enthusiastic songs and videos of the late 20th century was a-ha’s “Take On Me.”

a-ha, Take On Me

It is known as one of the “truly great pop songs” of the era. This video is the great story of the song –

No comment I read in public said it better than this on YouTube┬« –

“The interesting thing here is that the song was composed before they even met Morten, and still it appears to be written exactly for his vocal range There are very few singers who have volume and expression across more than two octaves. The riff and the refrain were created independently from each other but still it all fits together so nicely and organically.”

“… 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.”

Band On The Run is a two-part song by Paul McCartney and Wings that was written and released in the 1970s.

Is the first part of the song and the second part of the song are more like two songs glued together than one song? Or, did Sir Paul and the Band know it wanted a two-part piece with a release thus though it may sound as two songs stitched together, it was always written as a two-part suite made of one contiguous song.

THINGS WE SAID TODAY IS above because this great live version has not been heard by enough people!

The beats as measured above are contiguous. The set is closed. Speed is free.
