Here is a follow up thought to yesterday’s post:
I’m a sucker for waltzes. That lilting triple-meter does something to me. I feel it inside and out. That lingering 2-3 after the strong 1 that gets the beat conveys time and motion so well.
Also, I think that as a native to English our language has a natural lilt. We have small prepositions and articles fed in between our heavy nouns and verbs to give our voices the sway of the triplet. I hear lots of phrases in either 3/4 or 6/8 time.
So I’m tossing this question out to my few loyal readers: what music are you a sucker for? It doesn’t have to be your favorite, or particularly good, but what draws your ear?
Like I said, I’m a sucker for a waltz.
And 80s pop music. (For some reason; Heaven knows why.)
