The best scene in the movie according to the late Roger Ebert was the theme where Rocky proves he has the fortitude not not quit and *goes the distance*.  That great scene simply doesn’t work without a piece of music so perfect that Stallone cried when he heard it, knowing it was the clinching element to make a movie of inspiration, enthusiasm and power.

the zone | America |”Today’s The Day” |UNCLASSIFIED tempo map

I had liked the song and heard it before – to the point that when I went to breakfast I could feel the song more than the fear or anything else. And I was in what we all now call “THE ZONE.

The song Today’s The Day is my secret song in regard to the entire reason I discovered what I did.

The summer this song was popular, I was at a summer “sleep away” camp, and unlike when I was 9 years old and had gone to a sleep-away camp where 4 of my cousins were also going, two of them familiar with the ropes.

When I was ten I spent the summer at a summer camp in Connecticut in an atmosphere with which I was unfamiliar. Most other campers were from New England private schools, where I am from, like my wife and my parents , from New Jersey public school.

The camp and being homesick made me uncomfortable more than I ever would have admitted at a *tough* ten year old (!) would ever admit. The truth was I was uncomfortable meeting a couple of hundred new kids, no one close to me.

One day my fear ended. It happened because this song was playing on my clock radio alarm as I woke up. I had liked the song and heard it before – to the point that when I went to breakfast I could feel the song more than the fear or anything else. And I was in what we all now call “THE ZONE.” The day was perfect, I never hesitated, I tried to get nervous and I couldn’t, I just couldn’t miss. I remember telling myself: but for the song in morning, the whole summer would have been different. If I get older and no one has figured out how to use the power of matching an individual’s “zone” with a song that fit in that zone, I would need to try to do something myself.

“I bought a toothbrush, some some toothpaste, a flannel for my face” TEMPTED, Squeeze, Unclassified tempo map

It was the first song I heard when I arrived at my college in 1981, and indeed, leaving my little town of Harrington Park behind I felt I had made a mistake, I always loved the part of the song where Squeeze’s lead singer sings what I wanted in November 1981 when he sings the classic, “I said to my reflection, ‘let’s get out of this place!’.

“Tempted” plays at a speed where one usually finds songs filled with enthusiasm.

Most Famous Rock Piece w Dark D Minor w Enthusiastic 94.6 BPM speed . Cross over drums by Phil Collins IN THE AIR TONIGHT

Once when I saw Phil Collins play this in concert a man had to be taken off on a stretcher for having an asthma attack before the drum fill on this song ever occurred. Enthusiasm taken to the limit, as when the Baltimore Ravens used this song as their psyche up song during the Ray Lewis era.  

Once when I saw Phil img_1223-2img_0514_2Collins play this in concert a man had to be taken off on a stretcher for having an asthma attack before the drum fill on this song ever occurred. Enthusiasm taken to the limit, as when the Baltimore Ravens used this song as their psyche up song during the Ray Lewis era.  Phil had a style ‘tease’ style similar to the way Melissa Etheridge highlights or song. I’ve seen this played 10 times in concert and every time filmmakers it look like he’s not quite going to make the drums *that* time. Just as in Melissa Etheridge’s “Come to my window”, you hear her hit the challenging high note, (yes, *that*  one),

the on you cane to hear – and you think “she’s a little bit late coming down from it and you almost think that *she* forgets it and then it’s because she waits just the right amount of time that makes her dropping the higher note *down*!
