Favourite Odd Time Signature?

Yeah, so what is everybody's favourite odd time signature? Mine is 5/4 or 7/8.

I've always thought the 9/8 signature for Zeppelin's "The Crunge" is goofy but pretty cool. Although the funkiness of that song definitely contributes to its awesomeness.

Yeah, it is cool. Money was the first song I learned.

6/8 is pretty much two triplets, right? Or am I missing something?

Yep, that's pretty much it. You can always tell the difference between 6/8 and 3/4 because 6/8 accents the 1st and 4th eighth note, so it sounds like paired triplets, and 3/4 accents the 1st, 3rd, and 5th eighth notes. That's how I've always kept them straight.

Still Vie Die Nacht is in 6/4
Beethoven's 5th Symphony 2/4

But I also like 3/4, 6/8, and good ole 4/4

12/8 and 6/8 aren't really weird meters, but I do like them.

I like 9/8 or 12/8, you just can't beat the feeling of triplets.

Er... isn't cut time basically like 4/4 with a half-time feel? I guess what I mean to ask is, is 2/2 really an accurate way to put it?
Argh, some time signature things confuse me...

31/16 is the best because its just one 16th note off 4 bars of 4/4 so it sounds wierd.
