declassified tempo- “One Sweet World” / Dave Matthews Band / live at night. Piedmont Park iTunes concert video version

I’m kinda just going on. It happened, but you always post with backups for that very reason, which is why I don’t have bitterness for internet companies.

A lot of people tried to get a lot of things too fast. So on WordPress there are many many and still many more left wondering whether to republish material that the accidental overwhelming of WordPress when it took on 30% of internet and a merger with Google while working with thousands of theme software writers.

Well, you get the point – or it happened to you!

Anyone have ideas on it?

Elton John, Unclassified harmonic tempo probability chart featuring Marilyn Monroe

The popular song “Candle In The Wind” was first released on a double album of extraordinary creativity, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. The double studio album is almost impossible to pull off, but when it works, it is classic.

“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.”

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,

“I bought a toothbrush, some some toothpaste, a flannel for my face” TEMPTED, Squeeze, Unclassified tempo map

It was the first song I heard when I arrived at my college in 1981, and indeed, leaving my little town of Harrington Park behind I felt I had made a mistake, I always loved the part of the song where Squeeze’s lead singer sings what I wanted in November 1981 when he sings the classic, “I said to my reflection, ‘let’s get out of this place!’.

“Tempted” plays at a speed where one usually finds songs filled with enthusiasm.

INDIGO GIRLS UNCLASSIFIED TEMPO CHART – “I Call On The Resting Soul, Of Galileo, King of Night Vision, King Of Insight”

IN the late 20th century the band called the Indigo Girls wrote a brilliantly fun song about the most horribly brutal situation: Galileo, who’s “head was on the block/His crime?/Was giving up the truth.”

Matherton and me are listening to this as I type. I’m thinking : 25 year old song, better than ever.  Jackie is pushing for a comparison to a live version, both to compare speed and because it’s such a darned good piece of music!

©Newman Tempo Scale By Me, July 1988, copyright Nov 16, 1992. I think it holds up as well now as when I saw it 30 years ago. I did not INVENT it – there is nothing *to be* invented!  Below is a pattern of nature I saw while living as as first year law student. As I’ve written, I was trying to get gigs playing at piano bars during my time in Manhattan and despite on one night playing without mistakes by notes, on some difficult pieces, the feel in the room was unenergized and I did not know why. One night at after a 3rd ave gig, Bruce B, a drummer from the east coast said to  me, “not bad dude. you almost were good with Farmer’s Trust at the end, but I think that’s because it’s a waltz and it didn’t give you time to go into your your own head making up your you  own speed. I don’t know what it is with you piano players you think you can play any speed.  From a drummer’s perspective, I listen to your playing. You seem like other piano players to get off on all the harmonics underneath the piano, this *huge slab of wood*, blurring the harmonics as there are three strings for every note.  That makes anything you play sound interesting harmonically with all the notes playing off each other each other. YOU, dude!  That is not what the audience are hearing though, man. In fact, the *first time* you miss a beat as in instead playing in time, you go into your own and rubato which nobody’s going to follow.” This is getting along the this will be part 1 of genesis of the Newman Tempo Universal Proposed Scale. I’d like to end this part of the the by saying how much I try to convince myself that Bruce was wrong and in and I went into a 6moth-8 month period complete denial about what quite simply came playing for twenty two-year that I could be on time without out a metronome to practice with.
