Most get around to a thread on more edgy music. Or music that was revolutionary, that changed musical direction?

Ok, I've been tapping the left hand once and the right hand twice but not to these ones above (that's not to say I wouldn't waltz to them Wink )

What do you have in mind for revolutionary music?

Kate P can you not get a left right right beat from Sweetest Decline at all ? Try it.

Tell us, Kate, could you waltz to this?

My girlfriend and I have quite different musical tastes. Both of us, however, love this. Two fantastic voices, marvellous collaboration.

I agree not exactly Johann Strauss II but the thread to me is a contradiction in terms.

I am not a romantic sort and prefer something more edgy and complicated or a bit unusual for its time. Anything from this

to this

Is this one just a Waltz speeded up?

Perhaps not but try staying still while listening to it.

But should we ever tie the knot, this gets an airing, Squire, at some point in the festivities

There will be no arguments on this issue!

Great idea, Squire.

I don't see that either of the above - fab songs as they are, are waltzes though...

Excellent tunes above too. I heard this on the radio last night and couldn't help thinking that it must be one of the greatest pop songs ever written.

Kate P

That's a good tune.

I know the one's I posted are not waltzes just songs with a slow tempo. Truth is I detest the soporific waltz. May have been fine back in its day, but strikes me it was then the equivalent of this sort of thing.

I have suddenly realised, Bavarian Beer Garden music is inspired by the waltz.

The beats of a waltz are unbalanced or odd numbers - 3/4 time as opposed to 4/4 time and variations. What does this mean? 4/4 time has even emphasis on either beat - or on either foot - so you may march to it like a soldier, however fast or slow that may be. A waltz cannot be marched to because there is uneven stress on one side - oom pah pah .

So here you have even 4/4 (?) time by Funkadelic, One Nation Under a Groove
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msNgZ2nexC0

- you can imagine possibly marching to this and your foot is tapping evenly to it - oom oom oom oom ... but if you listen again to David Gray above your foot is going oom pah pah... 3/4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfcWzvin3KM

You can imagine marching or trotting along to the 4/4 time - a march is 2/4 time so it's slower but still even - footed; with a waltz there is one stress on one foot and two stresses on the other foot so if you were to march or walk to that you'd be going around in a circle which you are when you do a waltz, kinda.

So if you can march to it it's not a waltz, if you can't march to it it could be a waltz. It could also be Paranoid Android

If I may...

A good waltz tempo should be such that the gentle-man's coat tails straighten as he turns.

You weren't thinking of this song, were you?
