    Does anyone know the time signatures and tempos for this song? I've been listening to the song over and over again and i just can't figure it out. I think the verse is 6/8 and the intro/chorus is in 5/4 at a really fast tempo but I'm just not sure.
  2. Yeah, you're right about the time signatures. But I'd say it is 5/8 instead of 5/4, as it sounds like 1 2 3 4 5 (with the bold numbers being the accents, the emphasised beats), instead of 1 2 3 4 5, and the implied triplet rhymically in 5/8 fits better with the 6/8 of the verse, in the context of this song.
