The meanspeed music conjecture is outlined on the scale below, produced Newman Neumann, written by me.
As far as the “what is in it for me to learn an unproven music theory” factor, know that this song by Vanessa Carlton can be applied on your own mood. Using the James N Neumann Standard Tempo Scale, you can see that this song by Carlton is right in the middle of a range of speed, approximately 90-97 beats per minute, that has been recorded on a metronomic click which does not budge from approximately 95 beats per minute. If you look at songs at this speed, such as those songs on the lists provided on meanspeed music home page, it is predictable that songs at 95 bpm will emote confidence.
