The best scene in the movie according to the late Roger Ebert was the theme where Rocky proves he has the fortitude not not quit and *goes the distance*.  That great scene simply doesn’t work without a piece of music so perfect that Stallone cried when he heard it, knowing it was the clinching element to make a movie of inspiration, enthusiasm and power.

“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

On the album Live from Luther College as he plays duet with Tim Reynolds, before they launch #41 Dave calls the title, in a joke self mocking way, “about as creative as the Dave Matthews band.”

“Having My Baby” | unclassified tempo map| recording by the ageless PAUL ANKA

In the 1970s, Odoea Coates sang to Paul Anna that she wanted to have his baby because she “was a woman in love.”

In the 1970s, Odoea Coates sang to Paul Anna that she wanted to have his baby because she “was a woman in love.”

PAUL: “What A lovely way of showing how much you love me.”

Paul digs deeper, “Didn’t have to keep it – wouldn’t put you through it! You could have swept it from your life but you wouldn’t do it. No – you wouldn’t do it! [have an abortion].”

So in some ways the 1970s were a more liberal than the 2010s.

“You see, I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name, it feels good to be out of the rain.” UNCLASSIFIED TEMPO DIAGRAMS – video link

America’s HORSE WITH NO NAME is a song at a speed that one generally associated with victory, redemption and pure joy.  They did a twist in that speed – they play in the sublime sad haunted key of Em 9.

America’s HORSE WITH NO NAME is a song at a speed that one generally associated with victory, redemption and pure joy.  They did a twist in that speed – they play in the sublime sad haunted key of Em 9.  I recently heard the sing in the movie AMERICAN HUSTLER with Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lawrence and was psyched to hear the 10970s folk song sounding as unique as ever,
