Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Really great selection, and real good education. Discerning rhythym was never my forte, and I wasn't even aware that there is more than 2 or 3 or 4. (In the selection, the one I just failed to 'resolve' was the 6-beat of the Sevillanas, I somehow count five...)

Lemme test myself: is this 8-beat?

UNKLE - Burn My Shadow - 05:26

I only heard a few Broken Social Scene songs on internet radio before, and you guessed right that I like it!

I saw them live in Paris, they were playing as the first part of a Feist concert. It didn't sound so well ; without the clean sound of studio recording (and possibly an not so perfect balance) it became more noise than music.

Re six beats, Bernstein (I discover) used two versions of the six beat in 'America' from West Side Story--in one line!

First half (6/8 with two beats to the bar):

One  two   three        Four  five  six
I      want   to            be     in    A-

Second half (6/8 with three beats to the bar)

One two Three four Five six)
me            ri              ca

O-kay-by-me-in-A
me--ri--ca--

Ev-ry-thing's-free-in-A
me--ri--ca--

(For-a-small-fee-in-A
me--ri--ca--!)

Just before she starts singing they clap out the rhythm.

I'd call that an eight--following my theory.  All the counting, though, it can depend--if you count quick enough it'll be four fours; if you count slow enough it'll be a single four...same with the threes--minuets are in sixes, I look up a minuet by Bach--and the time signature is 3/4--(playing one melody line across two bars instead of keeping it all in one bar)
