pretty much anything by rush is in weird time signatures.

also 7/4 and 7/8 are vastly different.

any btbam song is in an odd time signature

i'm talking about modern songs, and this probably has like 6 songs that we've heard of, and then 120569087406 songs by random jazz/classical/other non-modern music composers.

so my list is more extensive right now, of what we're looking for.

I think parts of Psychosocial by Slipknot are in 7/8. Don't hold me to it though.
Slipknot Fan.

possum kingdom by the toadies if im remembering it right


If I'm hearing it right in my head, it's a bar of 7 alternating with a bar of 8 (so that makes it 7/4 and 4/4????) during the verse.

i shall listen.

and yes i'm holding you to it.

sigged.


EDIT after listening, no it's all in 4/4, you can headbang the whole song without getting confused and/or a headache.

7/4 Shoreline - Broken Social Scene

Dream Theatre/Meshuggah.

Guthrie Govan's tune Sevens is brilliant as well.

Why'd you make the thread, btw?

I just like the sound of the sig, and i thought wikipedia is too cluttered with all their "open-mindedness to all genres of music" that it'd be cool to have a thread with just modern rock songs.

and yes, dream theater, but i don't know anything in 7 by them, it's always like using 7/8 as part of a 7+9/8 sequence or something trippy like that.

Quite a lot of "The Year Summer Ended in June" by Misery Signals is in 7/8.

So what? I wasted like 5 minutes watching DaddyTwoFoot's avatar.


Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

If you like Genesis, Back in NYC also is in 7 (what I can remember, anyway).

Since when is the ocean 7/8?


depending on how you count it, there is definitely a bar of 7 in there.
#25
Quote by rollininrhythm
Since when is the ocean 7/8?

notice how every time it does the main riff, it feels like it skips a beat?

that's a measure of 7/8

the main riff is alt-ing measures of 4/4 and 7/8

at least how i count it.

Just to be pedantic, Freepower - it's Dream Theater.
And they don't really write many songs that stick to one metre, rather they'll use a few bars of one sig (if they even use more than one bar) before changing to another.
Hmm.
My contributions:

Abandoned - Kamelot
Ticks and Leeches - Tool
Parts of "Sweat" by Tool

Just, no. Locrian should be treated like that gay cousin. Just avoid him cuz he's weird, unstable, and is attracted to the wrong thing.

The intro to erotomania is in 9/8....


I phail....




Dream Theater? It's in 5/4.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Ohhhhh, yea, I hear it.

I THINK Golden Brown by The Stranglers has some parts in 7/8 in it, and also pretty much all tech death bands have a 7 time sig at some point in the majority of their songs.
#35
The Past Recedes by John Frusciante is in 7/4 in the verses.

The instrumental parts of Golden Brown alternate between 4/4 and 7/8
#37
lI thought Times Like These was in 4/4?

EDIT: and 3/4?

What about the Ghost of Tom Joad by Bruce Springsteen? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sp-oDAxx8So Sounds to me like 2 bars of 4/4 followed by a bar of 3/4 and another of 4/4, which could be alternating 4/4 and 7/4.

Also, his song Mrs McGrath is a 5/4 hornpipe I believe.

I wouldn't mind verification here, cause it doesn't sound as strange as other 7/4 pieces
#40
Isn't Money in 5/4? I have this video about the album and I think Waters says it is in the video.. And the lyrics are in iambic pentameter so it would make sense.
