Oscar's Everyone Day

Sunday 23rd June 2024
In 2021 Oscar the Grouch proposed one day each year where "we unite as a community and EVERYONE records an activity of some sort - a dog walk, a run, a swim, a ride, ski if you want...".

Sadly we lost Oscar in March, so I'd like to dedicate Everyone Day to him. Thank you for the inspiration you gave us Oscar.

If you're looking for music, Love is a Battlefield, Rock Lobster and What I Am (Edie Brickell) work well at 180ish.

I once spent ages trying to measure the precise beats per minute of lots of tracks on my iPod. (This was a long time ago!)

Is there an easy way, in these modern techie days, of playing a track, perhaps through an app, and getting a beats per minute reading?

I've googled and there's something called BPM detect which will do that.

There's another one called BPM detector, which gets much better reviews than the one I previously mentioned...

Spotify have some bpm playlists, although the 180 ones aren't that inspiring. I have an app called, imaginatively, BPM, which lets me tap along and calculates an average. It also shazams.

Podrunner used to have an app where you could actually adjust the bpm of their tracks if you particularly liked one that wasn't at the speed you wanted.

Got something to say?
