The Unnamed Rhythm Of Modern Music

Unnamed rhythmThis is a fascinating video that looks at songs that use a rhythm pattern that doesn’t have a name, yet is found in so many hits. I must admit that I hadn’t thought about this much until I watched this video, and now I hear the rhythm everywhere. What is it?

3 + 3 + 3 + 3 +4

You can find it in songs across many different eras of music, like The Beatles “Here Comes The Sun,” Toto’s “Rosanna,” System Of A Down’s “Arials,” Bon Joni’s “Have A Nice Day,” and All American Rejects “Move Along.”

Watch the video from Jake Lizzio (it’s really well done), and let me know if you know the name of it.
