HEY JUDE – The Beatles – meanspeed® tempo map / bpm graph 2 – potrait linear trend B
The emotional expression of songs between 70-76 beats per minute indicate a tendency toward grace, as: an expression of unconditional love, mercy, gentleness, understanding, pleasantness, charm, refinement and clemency.
John Lennon is noted many times as listening to a song soon to be seen on this page called A Whiter Shade Of Pale—which has the same speed element: the drifting of speeds between 69 and 76 beats per minute—but a measure or two above that—for example, 78.7—one could be assured that with a measure the speed with either:
a) Decelerate within a measure or two; or
b) stay accelerated but making up speed in order that unconsciously the overall meanspeed of the song is actively graceful.
Hey Jude accelerates slowly and in and arc form, as you can see. The acceleration is not extreme. In the first minute, one measure bottoms out at 69.5 bpm, and then between the 75% and 80% mark of the advance of the song, there is one spiked measure as fast as nearly 77. The song comes back to the mean speed in the last 20% ending by moving from 73 to 74 beats per minute—establishing the unconditional love speed.
