I have not posted very many Fogerty songs, though I think they are as American as John Mellencamp, Prince or Bob Seeger combined. Anyway, let’s look at the speed of his ‘last’ big hit: Centerfield.
median expected tempo/arithmetic mean speed=143.2 beats per minute
average beat=~0.4191 seconds
Frequency as tone=610.79 Hertz in equal temperament
