“I’d Rather Live In His World – Than Live Without Him, In Mine” |expected median harmonic tempo charts, video link to *classic*

Midnight Train to Georgia has a median expected tempo of 90.5 beats per minute as shown on the two graphs shown on this page.

 

In regard to regard to the topic and where the emotional presentation of the performer meets the speed itself: 90.5 bpm falls within the range of this experiment as being in a group known generally as “confident enthusiasm.”  To me, as Gladys and the Pips rocked and recorded this classic in 1972, they were in that state of confidence. To me, the harmonic rhythm drives the song in an easy mood of happily getting ready.
