The Intro to 'Kate'
May I apologise in advance if I'm posting this thread in an inappropriate place. Assuming I haven't, and no forum moderators are furious, I shall move onto the business of the post:
I need some help settling an argument. I am in the middle of a very light-hearted, albeit musically technical conversation about the song 'Kate' from 'Whatever and Ever Amen'. I maintain that there is one cheeky bar on 9-8 (with respect to time signature) in the intro which moves the F in the bass from beat 1 to the upbeat. My friend disagrees, and insists that I am inventing half a beat somewhere.
Would any other Ben Folds enthusiasts like to share their opinion(? Of course, if the man himself wanted to weigh in on this one, I could officially put it to bed... one can dream!
