As someone who clearly not a musician and musically challenged with a curiosity about this stuff I hear, I stumbled across this tool this late night.

http://www.shockwave-sound.com/tools/tap-BPM-tempo.html

Find the BPM tempo of a music track by tapping the beat on your mouse or keyboard. The longer you keep tapping the rhythm, the more accurate / reliable your tempo will be measured.

Tonight, I have a current pop club song stuck in my head today. According to the above site, I tapped for a full 100 taps (the maximum) and the BPM tempo of the song appears to be 129 BPM. (If anyone is interested, the club song stuck in my head is "Scream and Shout" by Will.I.Am; not normally my cup of tea, but in my head.)

And I note it has been 4 1/2 years since I've been on this board when I took a MUS101 class. I miss learning about music and learning (practicing) to listen with new ears.

Thanks,
ST
