Does his little ditty on Raw mean he's going to that roster or have they been showing similar things on Smackdown (I don't get UPN)?

They'll probably play it on SD as well since they appear to be playing up the "Free Agent" angle with him.

My second favorite stupid tidbit: The reason the siren in BPP's entrance music sounds kind of off is because it's in 7/4 time. I can't think of any other wrestler's entrance music that isn't in 4/4.

Did you figure that out on your own free time?

(So what you're saying is although his music is 4/4, the siren's in 7/4?)

No, the siren is in 7/4 and the beat is following the siren. So the whole thing is in 7/4.

I don't know if it still is, I wasn't paying attention to it completely the other night. It definitely isn't the same thing he was using as an entrance in WCW, they souped it up a bit.

4/4 means four quarter notes per measure, so you can count along with the song: 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4. Most popular music these days is in 4/4.

7/4 means seven quarter notes per measure, so if you were counting along, it'd go: 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3. If you're used to 4/4, it would sound like it was dropping one beat every other measure.

I haven't noticed that about BPP's theme, but now I'm all excited!

The fact that the crowd seemingly makes absolutely no sound at all during those vignettes should make it easy to count the time too.

What WWE needs is more 6/8 music--besides Chris Harvard's theme, of course. Considering how slow Big Show is sometimes, his music could be in 3/4. I played saxophone in band for 6 years--nice to see I've retained something. :)

The only thing I retained from band is a fierce hatred of memories of attempting anything outside 4/4, 3/4, and 6/8 (if I was concentrating)

Those damn sirens are REALLY annoying. Hopefully they tweak the theme to move them to the background.

Listen to "Money" by Pink Floyd. That intro just feels all weeeiiirrddd. It's cause it's in 7/4.

Or the intro to "Spoonman" from soundgarden. I can't think of any others offhand.

Them Bones, ALice in Chains..
Go by Pearl Jam


are all not in 4/4..either 3/4 or 7/8

I *like* the sirens..totally adds to the freak Steiner idea.
I saw Steiner's entrance once, in Germany and with a whole lotta flashlights and cop like lights I thought it was an amazing entrance..

I listened to BPP's theme during his vignette tonight; it's definitely in 4/4. The siren's out of sync, but the basic theme's 4/4.

No way. I listened to it too. Becuase it's a really basic beat (thump THUMP thump THUMP) it could be in any time, which most people subconciously hear as 4/4 becuase it's so common. But start counting the beats between the sirens and it's 7 beats, start over. Since the siren and the beat were the only things in the old intro, that's definitely 7/4. Now that there's other stuff in the intro, maybe they've switched it, but I don't think so.

Moe, ignore the siren completely and listen to the theme; listen to the guitar and stuff. That stuff is 4/4.

Now that there's other stuff in the intro, maybe they've switched it

Yeah, you may be right about that.

Although it seems that a thump THUMP beat is going to be an even-numbered tempo, or you'd have to toss in a thump THUMP THUMP in there, no?

I would like to formally interrupt this musical thread to state that Scott Steiner is a broken-down clod who can't string two coherent sentences together, and I'm sad he's coming in. I hope he just jobs to Triple H and leaves.

Not being coherent is part of Steiner's charm, IMO. Trying to decipher what he was saying was my highlight of Nitro every week.
