harmonic-speed Mathematical Psychology The Speed Of Bittersweetness

A song of maudlin melancholy that every forgets was on the most popular album in American History – Randy Meisner’s TRY AND LOVE AGAIN, eagle, ‘hotel California’_unclassified tempo map

TRY AND LOVE AGAIN, the eagles

To me this song has a feeling of deep bittersweetness – an America hiraeth.

What do you think the Eagles are trying to express?

“In The Air Tonight” | Phil Collins | declassified tempo maps and video link

There are many opinions as to how fast In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins is.

These are the times I measured it.

To me, the coolest thing about the entry of the drums with a savage rawness that makes this song one that “will outlive [me],” as Phil Collins referred to himself and how the song has become more famous than *he*is.

The universality of being able to feel as though something is going to happen, especially at night, with an intensity that in the hands of most writers doesn’t translate. That is what music is for, correct? To express messages of any kind in a way humans have done far before their were any etchings on any cave walls.

But let me not drown (he’d throw me a lifevest if I was drowning, Phil would)

That sounds like it could be a bummer, but it is not!  If someone told Shakespeare that in 600 years parents would still be naming their children Romeo and Juliet [and all the other turns of the English language that dates back to and were formed by the creation and performance of his dramas], would he even have believed it?
