Listening journal 1 Elvis Presley – Hound Dog. This song has a steady beat and is subdivided into duple beats. You can hear the bass in the background giving off a strong back beat. The tempo is moderate speed. The lyrics in this song repeat a lot as well Jimi Hendrix – Moon Turn the Tides. This song starts off with Jimi on guitar and a deep bass in the background. Its hard to tell off the bat how the beats are subdivided but eventually you can tell they are duple. There is a long intro before any of the words are even sung, so the song comes off as an instrumental. Jimi Hendrix – And the Gods Made Love. This song I didn’t really like. It was just a bunch of effects used to create confusion. It was only a minute and a half long. There was no beat or tempo and you couldn’t get a real rhythm for the song. Elvis Presley – Hard Headed Woman. This song made me think of old time dancing. Had a nice bassline and had a real good tempo. The song was farely fast and the beats were duple. There was a backbeat of a trumpet too. Elvis Presley – Love Me Tender. The tempo is very slow and is a love song. There are woodwinds and string instruments in this too. The backbeats are a bass. There are a lot of background singers in this too. I didn’t like this song at all. Elvis Presley – Return to Sender. There is a duple meter beat. It has a very catchy beat and I actually like the song. The tempo is moderate. The drums keep the beat while the bass makes a backbeat. There is an emphasis on the 2 &4 beats. Billy Joel – It’s Still Rock n Roll. This duple beat is one I have heard for a while. I actually really like billy joel. He is one of my favorite older artists. The back beat is catchy and can really be heard in this song.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
