The How Fast Was That And Why Should I Care Series – Kate Bush, “Wuthering Heights” | matherton diagram | median expected probable tempo=940.4 msecs

which shoes fit exactly. Which eyeglasses correct perfectly? That is a personal question for *you*.

If you are like me, or my friend Nick Avenscion of Los Angeles, a slow song in the middle of a playlist is as individual as taste in music itself.

Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights is a song that is a personal favorite of mine, and calms me through the hard part of a simple treadmill walk – around minute 21 through 25. To me, the slow song as a Wuthering Heights illustrates how we can choose our own favorites, just like we can dress ourselves, and know what we like to eat for supper.

Rob “meathead” Reiner and Cenk “The Youngest Turk” Uygur both threatened to TAKE ‘IT’ TO THE STREETS a la Michael McDonald

Three songs of note within 1% of the speed of Takin’ It To The Street are Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits, Jumping Jack Flash by the Rolling Stones, Dancing In The Dark by Bruce Springsteen and Love Me Do by The Beatles.

One, I had no idea what these men had planned for the streets.  To the best of my knowledge, Rob Reiner is 100 years old and lives in a gated-off community in Hollywood where even if he “took to the streets” it would mean no adventure.

And Cenk Uygur of Route 27 in my home state of New Jersey.  I respect Cenk.  But I like near Douglass and all. What Cenk had planned for the “streets” kinda freaked me out a little.

MIND GAMES, John Lennon | Unclassified tempo chart featuring Dr. Phil McGraw

Are mind games now being played on Dr. Phil?
Have we reached a point that ring to save someone’s life brings you more wrath than not threatening to assassinate the person next door because their skin is too white?

Randy Bachman was asked when he stopped taking the rock and roll lifestyle so seriously, as indicated in the song Taking Care Of Business.  The writer of TCB refused to say a word.

Kmk Natasha and fadingthekisses posted a public comments regarding this song that I identified with more than 100 other opinions I’ve read on this classic three chord composition.

    General CommentThe lyrics of the song extoll the virtues of being a professional musician, comparing the rock and roll lifestyle to the workaday world. Takin’ Care of Business was originally a tune by The Guess Who that never got released. It was originally titled “White Collar Worker”, and very similar to the Beatles tune “Paperback Writer”. At many Guess Who concerts, lead singer Burton Cummings would introduce the song as now being a Guess Who song.

    Ironically, the song has been used as an advertising campaign for companies such as Office Depot, when the song is in fact, about being lazy.

Personally this song has a lot of meaning to me. I’ve always thought the “taking care of business” part was in relation to taking a shit. I could be wrong, but I’ve always thought about it like that. I also usually ‘TCOB’ at 8:15 so this song really resonates with me.

Paul McCartney’s two part suite – BAND ON THE RUN – declassified tempo map, video embedded.

Why not suggest one list for this mood, one list for that mood, etc?  Because EVERYONE HAS UNIQUE TASTE!  I’d love to work with and play around with music lists with anyone.  The idea that ONE list that works for me is going to work for you? Arrogant? Is Apple or Pandora or Spotify telling you to LISTEN TO MY LIST?  Kinda feels demeaning to me.  I think, dude, I can put my own list together, thanks for trying to shove your taste down my thought.

Band On The Run
McCartney + Wings

One of the two part songs that was popular in the 1970s was the song by Paul McCartney, “Band On The Run”. I chose to measure the speed of this harmonic rhythm as from the time I was a child I felt the lift in the song when the speed changes.

“Timeless song – 50 years old this year.”

I consider band On The Run a two part suite. Paul McCartney> Thank you for spending your life sharing your musical, artistic, political, mathematical talents with everyone! In 500 years Lennon/McCartney will be as Beethoven/Mozart, as Paul suggested.

Bill Conti – GOING THE DISTANCE – median probable tempo chart, declassified from ROCKY

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.
