BPM Counter!! March 6, 2008

I ran a couple searches (literally, two), and browsed my way to a free bpm counter widget from http://www.flyingcheeseburger.com. While working on some other things, I have started counting beats per minute looking for potential running songs. Here are the albums I checked out tonight and each song’s bpm. I’m setting up a Running Playlist for all the songs that are in the 160-170-ish range to see if they work well as running songs. The logic there is that the Podrunner episode that I find easiest to run to is 166 bpm.

(Couple of notes on the widget… it’s a manual thing, so the bpm probably aren’t 100% accurate. I’m laboring under the presumption that it doesn’t have to be for my purposes. Also, I’m pretty sure it’s just for Macs – sorry, PC users.)

If this works, I’m going to have to learn how to not waste precious O2 singing along. I’ll let you know how it goes!
