“Tell my wife I am trolling Atlantis! And I still have my hands on the wheel. Ah, yo!” – unclassified probable median tempo chart – BILLY JOEL. ‘Downeaster Alexa’

Ita me habere potui Downeaster “Alexa”
Et quo ad Oceanum est abyssi
Sunt gigantum reputata est et in canyons
Et optimus imperator non laberetur in somnum
EGO got laoreet reddere atque necessarium filios et vestimenta sua
Scio enim de illic ‘pisces: sed ubi? Dominus solus novit,
Dicunt isti quod aquae non sunt, esse solebat,
Sed surrexit populi mei super terram quis numerare

Billy Joel was born and raised on Long Island, New York, United States.

As one who exudes empathy in his songs, in DOWNEASTER ALEXA he sings about the once reliable lifestyle of the hardworking fisherman who cannot fish as they once did because of pollution and overfishing in the “overkill”.

The lyrics, legally for hobby and personal use in latin –

Bene ego sum, et in Downeaster “Alexa”
Et Ego in illo uagari Clausus Island Novum
Scilicet ego et charted ad vineam pullum
At ego hac nocte Nantucket vinctum
Non tulit retro pellentesque ex hesterno die in Montauk
Hac mane a bell reliquit in Gardiners Bay
Ut omnis hie locus est vendere Ego quoque mea
Superbus est discedere, et digitos meos ad os operatur

Bily Joel -Downeater Alexa –

Ita me habere potui Downeaster “Alexa”
Et quo ad Oceanum est abyssi
Sunt gigantum reputata est et in canyons
Et optimus imperator non laberetur in somnum
EGO got laoreet reddere atque necessarium filios et vestimenta sua
Scio enim de illic ‘pisces: sed ubi? Dominus solus novit,
Dicunt isti quod aquae non sunt, esse solebat,
Sed surrexit populi mei super terram quis numerare

Ergo si vidisti me Downeaster “Alexa”
Et si vos opus cum virga, et turbabuntur
Dic mihi uxor mea certare sumperiphorais ad Atlantis,
Et etiam Ego got manus super rotam

Yay, O
Yay, O
Yay, O
Yay-o-Yay

Nunc mea eiciam Downeaster “Alexa”
Quotannis ferme plus fluctibus
Cum autem ad me non possum vendere non stripers
Hie et illic ‘nulla fortuna in swordfishing
Pater esset in conspectu meo: sicut et ego bayman
Non potes facere vivos sicut iam bayman
Non est multum in posterum, qui operatur in mare
Nulla relicta insula non me tamen insulanorum

“Au Lait” | Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays | unclassified harmonic tempo map

Just a moment of perfection. Around the part of the song that Pat comes in after the major break. I had my walkman on, which was not a usual thing at that time. Yeah, passing the White House, listening to this at about 7 PM, finishing a post work beer.

In 1984 I had a college internship in Washington, D.C.

After work, the bus used to pass in front of the East Lawn of the White House, and there was one night on hearing this song for the first time and looking out the window I had a DC “peak experience.” Just a moment of perfection. Around the part of the song that Pat comes in after the major break. I had my walkman on, which was not a usual thing at that time. Yeah, passing the White House, listening to this at about 7 PM, finishing a post work beer.

This song for whatever reason – I think it’s Nana’s Brazilian percussion – reminds me of the basic Chicago sound I grew up in during the 1960s. It was not music from rock music. Rather, it was Debussy, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart when my Dad studied then Beatles and Burt Bacharach when my dad went back to the hospital in Chicago to learn to be a surgeon.

Alanis and Glenn wrote this song in ten minutes and the track on the album was the first take.

THE WATER IS WIDE – Orla Falon- declassified tempo map, video link

The scene was filmed on the the California beaches, somewhere between Catalina and Venice Beach. As you can tell I’m from the East Coast!

The Water Is Wide

This is a tempo chart I made inspired by a scene from the Bold and The Beautiful that featured Susan Flannery as Stephanie Douglas Forrester ushering with utter gentlest her other, played by Betty White. The scene was filmed on the the California beaches, somewhere between Catalina and Venice Beach. As you can tell I’m from the East Coast!

“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,
