Are there people here who are musicians or have studied music?

I am curious to know whether the beat in "La Isla Bonita" as sung by Madonna, has a constant riff of syncopated rhythm, or else it is an off-tempo Cha-Cha rhythm.

That song is mesmerizing.

At the social dances for singles I used to attend in the eighties and nineties, of the last century, the DJ used to introduce this song as a "slow Cha-Cha." To this day I am not sure he was right.

Here's a question I haven't seen others get into. When you listen to a song, with or without singing, do you just listen to it for its sound (which I often do which I think makes me an audiophile) or do you keenly listen for the words, or it depends?

In music produced commercially, most of the time I care only for the musical aspects, which means lyrics are secondary, but not completely irrelevant. Take a song like Bohemian Rhapsody and it's not easy to separate one from the other.

I never hear lyrics, when i hear music it is albout the beat and/or melody.

even - esp for classical or "new age" type stuff it is all about the "silence between the notes"..............sounds weird maybe? its so.

stuff ilke Windom Hill type music its so.

George Winston, Mark Isham, Nightnoise come to mind here.

When there are lyrics to a song I always listen to hear what they are saying, often I can get a meaning out of a song that you don't get if you don't hear the words.

This is an especially good interpretation of the song.

I was forced to, for the first twenty years of my life, when I was most perceptive to musical tastes and directions. All the music I listened to, all the songs, were sung in English, and I hadn't been speaking a word of it. "Yes", "no" and "okay" were the extent of my knowledge then. So really had to rely on the music side of songs for enjoyment.

That's why I never liked songs like "Mrs. Brown, you've got a lovely daughter", or "Mrs. Robinson", this latter of course by Simon and Garfunkel.

Only recently (in the last twenty years or so) have I been paying attention to lyrics. The most outstanding examples of deeply moving lyrics are, in my opion, by Bob Dylan. Little wonder he got the Nobel prize in literature. He fully deserved it, too, if you ask me.

The funny part is, that he did not even need to make sense to get to you with his words. Take, for instance, "Watchtower". Its words have been moving me for twenty years now, and in essence, the lyrics don't say anything. There is no development, temporal or otherwise; no events; not even moods are described. Yet even if you listen to the original first version of it, by Jimi Hendrix, you can't hold your tears back.
