Lucius Songs in Odd Time Signatures (80* d) RE: Songs in Odd Time Signatures 01 Jul 01


I've always of Take Five as being in mixed meter--6/8 & 2/4. Same for Jethro Tull's Living in the Past. The only tune that I know (outside of Macedonia & the Balkans) that is in true 5/4 would be Mars from Holst's the Planets.

The Beatles did an interesting thing with All you Need is Love. The verses alternate between 7/8 and 4/4 (8/8) time.
