Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. / “SHOWDOWN” / live, Wembley Stadium, median expected tempo chart

Seems to me that songs I don’t fall in love with *right away*, but rather grow on me over a year or two, become my favorites.

“Showdown” Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. – median expected tempo diagram

I was lucky enough to see and hear the fantastic Jeff Lynne with *his* E.L.O. in Philadelphia last month.

Seems to me that songs I don’t fall in love with *right away*, but rather grow on me over a year or two, become my favorites.

When the band played this in my wife’s home town of Philadelphia last month, SHOWDOWN was unexpectedly the song I enjoyed the most.

Respect to allJeff,

I searched in several places online for a way for Jim Deluva and his band, “The Jim Deluva Cover Boys” to imitate the sound to perfection at a bachelor party they are playing tonight.

Jim is in the driveway – cool. I had told him, “Dude, you should have been able to find a chart my uncle posted a long time ago.”

“I know, dude, I know – can’t find it. I want you to listen to the ride pattern on the cymbal I worked out, anyway. It’s 4 over 3s over 4s – kind of a Phil Collins thing – and Roger and Phil never liked each other, so I want you to hear it.”
