|PD: rhythmical anomalies||30 Oct 2002 07:19|
You can post here your list of songs with rhythmical anomalies:
disorienting rhythms, occasssional change of meter (including half measures), change of meter, etc.
It's a mainly non-Queen thread. I'm interested in more genres: pop music, rock music, progressive music,... Plus point if you write an as-complete-as-possible list of rhythmic anomalies of the entire catalog (or album) of a particular band/songwriter. Queen, Beatles and Kate Bush lists are available or linked in my related article.
I listed George Michael's "Faith" among the 3+3+3+3+4 songs
In fact song uses 3+3+3+4+2+4 pattern, that is called as Bo Diddley rhythm.
Sleeping On The Sidewalk: I was wrong in both the "rhythm" article and the song analysis article regarding the intro of SOTS. It's in synchron with the 1-2-3(-4) count in. The off-beat accents tricked me. Going to be corrected for the next updates.
Rock It: intro in 6/8, song in 4/4
Queen songs with change of meter:
Bohemian Rhapsody (under debate: 5/4 vs 9/8)
