• My own list of songs in odd times signatures

    This is my list of songs in odd times signatures. It doesn't have any references and it's built almost entirely with prog rock songs. I don't have any formal studies in music, so if you spot something wrong or have a contribution, let me know. In this list is considered "odd time" everything that's neither a 4/4 nor a 6/8 time.

    The list is divided in three categories: "septuple meters" (like 7/8, 7/4), "quintuple meters" (like 5/4, 10/4) and "multiple meters".

    Septuple meters:
    1967 - "All You Need Is Love" (The Beatles - Magical Mystery Tour) - verses: 7/4 + 7/4 + 8/4 + 7/4
    1971 - "The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus)" (Yes - Fragile) - 7/8
    1972 - "Siberian Khatru" (Yes - Close to the Edge) - verses: 4 + 4 + 4 + 3
    1973 - "Money" (Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon) - 7/8
    1973 - "The Ocean" (Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy) - main riff: 4 + 4 + 4 + 3
