in memory of Sandy Dennis,
Tucker and Rudy
The best songs hit me in the gut, viscerally.
I’ll usually like a song or not based on
1) liking the initial bodily pull from the harmonic rhythm;
2) liking the melodic sounds
3) liking the harmonic choices
4) liking the sonority.
Speed is something that rules music, Burt I have never changed a song in my of purchases based on tempo. All music I measure is purchased. I thank YouTube and WordPress firewall allowing recording embeds, borrowed never stolen. I’m a 40 year musician – I get it. Also a lawyer, thus being disbarred for stealing and REO Speedwagon hit? No thanks! Live ya Kevin Cronin, so know I bought everything I listened to before checking out GREAT performances from all the fantastically generous artists on YouTube💯💯💯.
I *have* thousands of purchases based obj whether I like the way that tempo is being used. I own every Pat Metheny Group, Genesis and Dave Matthews Band song. In the end, Carter Beaford of the Dave Matthews Band has been there most underrated musician alive since 1992!
Self-control is the most important part of your life when those in power and those who feel powerless are letting their emotions drown out logical, linear rational thought.
