I can’t see that “Helter Skelter “, “Dizzy Miss Lizzy “, “Money”, or “Twist And Shout ” are anything near the fastest tracks on their respective albums….mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

I havent gone through and tapped out the BPM of every song but I think Because might be slower than Sun King in terms of tempo. The intro is playing triplets at a slow quarter note pulse, Sun King has a more laid back instrumental but I dont think that its slower.

I suspect Because is slower as well.

They’re very close; both “Sun King ” and “Because ” go through 32 beats in 25 seconds, by my measure.

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

I just tapped out the BPM into a metronome and Sun King came out 3 bpm slower. I think that LITSWHD was right initially.

Sun King to me always feels like water calmly lapping on a peaceful beach. Amazing melody.

I think of water as well, with Paul’s tapes of crickets and wavery chimes reinforcing the aural image. 

As for the topic…I would say that the fastest track from WtB is “I Wanna Be Your Man “…

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.
