It being 12/12/12, I was put in mind of 3/4 time, of course.
Here are a few songs in that time signature (technically, some are in 6/8, but if I can count it in threes, I count it. This list is just off the top of my head, and is in no particular order…and yes, there are 2 Queen songs. Sue me.
- She’s Leaving Home - Beatles
- Manic Depression - Jimi Hendirx
- Birdland - Patti Smith
- My Favorite Things - John Coltrane
- Drowse - Queen
- Dead Melodies - Beck
- Nude - Radiohead
- We Are The Champions - Queen
- Christmas Time Is Here - Charlie Brown Christmas
interestingly, Waltzing Matilda isn’t in 3/4 unless you count it in triplets. But hey, it’s a great song, so I’m including it.
Enjoy your 12/12/12!
