Imagine, John Lennon, declassified tempo probability chart

Imagine, John Lennon, declassified tempo probability chart

The song Imagine by the late John Lennon was recorded with the speed asymptotic to 76 bpm.

When people play this too fast, it has the odd character of sounding sadder.

Hence the surreal oddity of the Frenchman imitating the song in CRUEL irony after a mass gun death during a Western-based harmonies, AFRICAN-BASED RHYTHM show, otherwise known as “popular” and “rock” music concert while playing it so fast it was to some “oddly gauche” (Variety).

I agree with the gauche comment, especially as the fine American composer and performer James Taylor kept his speed below the asymptote of 76 bpm💙
