To my knowledge this publication is the only place that the much talked about icon song BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY has ever been broken down by speed. You need not be a genius or a dummy to see 6 minutes of speed in 6 inches, but you can be,

and you can be average too, which is the [beauty] of meanspeed® music therapy.

Before you criticize my tempo breakdown of this all time classic contemporary song which has no parallel, realize that I stayed with that which is balanced / boring? repetitive? /OBJECTIVE? / repeatable. You tell me.

“AIN’T NO SUNSHINE” Bill Withers | New Jersey Free School/meanspeed music tempo breakdown | Bring back the Obama women! | Legal, free tempo maps, video link, Presidential photographs

Bill Withers is a song that reminds me of the foolish choice we as nation would make if we elected Mitt Romney.  Mrs Michelle Robinson Obama, Esq., her mom and two beautiful daughters give our president a cool poised balance that has helped get the nation back on its feet since President Barack Obama has taken office.

cropped-barack-obama-needs-people-too-tempo-chart-aint-no-sunshine-brenda-silverman-prep-school.jpg

Bill Withers’ classic “Ain’t No Sunshine” would be the theme of despair with a Mitt “I tied my sick dog to my car” Romney.  We look at Mitt, want to like him, then he tells us “[47% of us are human parasites.]”  Not the man of sunshine you want?  Then you might do what we are doing as we see the family and business dynamic in the White House and the priorities thereof: VOTE TO RE-ELECT THE PRESIDENT!

This was the end of the beginning of contemporary rock music. I am sure this has been written somewhere, but ‘Revolution‘ could have been called ‘Evolution.’ Track by track you can literally hear the forefront switch from rhythm & blues to rock & roll.

“Hey, Soul Sister” precise bpm scan/tempo breakdown. Can you take a tape loop in your head and use it to advantage?

Hey Soul Sister by Train is a popular song where the mean speed, or average expected tempo was in a tape loop in my head for a while.  I was not able to find out the name of the song as my voice is not good enough to sing it.  Finally, though, I heard it on a number of commercials on tv and found out the name of the song.

The past couple of days I have looped this song together with two other songs at the same speed – “The Tracks Of My Tears” by Smokey Robinson, “Soldier Boy” by the Shirelles and the Burt Bacharach version of “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head” and thge Serious Hits Live version of “IN THE AIR TONIGHT” BY Phil Collins.

What effect does this have?  For me it allows me to set a mood for the day and to control the speed of my mind.  It does help to have a catalog of songs with their corresponding tempos.

Justin Timberlaske – SEXYBACK

Justin Timberlake has made a push to become the modern Chairman of The Board, Mr. Frank Sinatra. He has claimed to the messenger of “Sexy” – he tells us he realize that the “other boys” don’t know how to act. At the same time he tells us this message at the strict drum machine pattern set to a drum machine. Timberlake and Timbaland stick to an ultra-strict tempo track.

What you see is the speed of the song itself. I call it a “mean” speed as any introductions or fade outs that are not part of the song are cut out. Judgment call. How do I determine where a beat is located, where four machines already read 117.ooo beats per minute? My answer is twofold:
1) I follow the simple but rigorous methodology as described on this site;
2) I follow my ear, as the average reasonable listener and musician – every measure has one space where the main ‘beat’ is felt (ask any professional dancer!) – whether such beat is silent or the highest dynamic in the measure.
song=”SexyBack””SexyBack” is a song written and performed by the American singer Justin Timberlake for his second solo album

It features Timbaland on backing vocals, and earned Timberlake and Timbaland the 2007 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.

This song made the seventh-biggest jump to number one in Billboard Hot 100 history. Climbing 30 spots from #31 landing it at the summit of the chart on September 9, 2006.

From everything I have read this past decade, scientists have been able to separate the emotion of exteme happiness or pure joy from the satisfaction of victory itself.  Not That victory cannot bring about joy, but no amount of joy can compete, literally and figuratively with the “thrill of victory.”  Victory is a rush, and, as Jim McCay continued for ABC®’s Wide World of Sports®, over the “agony of defeat.”  And as Joe Garagiola said after the Mets came back to defeat the Red Sox in the 1986 World series, “I don’t know who forst said this Vince [Sculley], but you see it heere, Losing feels worse than winning feels good.”  That is axiomatic psychology.  Even Dr. Phil watchers know that negative experiences average four times the intensity of positive experiences.
