Weekly SNDtrack: Kasabian

Apparently in music 120BPM (beats per minute) is the secret sauce. It makes you wanna go crazy.

This according to Giorgio Moroder who calls it the “magic tempo.”

Does that name sound familiar? It should.

Giorgio Moroder is a music legend. The Italian record producer, songwriter, performer and DJ is widely credited with pioneering synth disco and electronic dance music.

Among his accomplishments are the massively successful soundtracks Top Gun (1986) and Flashdance (1983) and theme songs for The Never Ending Story and Over the Top.

He co-wrote and produced the seminal Donna Summer hit single “I Feel Love” and has won three Academy Awards: Best Original Score for Midnight Express (1978); Best Song for “Flashdance…What a Feeling“, and Best Song for “Take My Breath Away“, from Top Gun.

Earlier this year, Giorgio Moroder won his 4th Grammy Award for Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories (Album of the Year).

They say that you can’t argue with success.

Taking this to heart, English rock band Kasabian incorporated the 120BPM tempo into their “Eez-eh” single from their new album 48:13 (named so after the length of the album.)

Here’s the result…(are you up on your feet yet?)
