“Never A Time” | Genesis | unclassified tempo charts

A day in the life-beatles-harmonic-tempo-probability-chart

My brother asked me about the speed of this one yesterday.


This was not surprising to hear on the day that the speed usually indicates: true bittersweetness. A sweet day that leaves a bitter aftertaste as time is a bastard. When we say goodbye to the ones we love on holidays no one ever knows when to say goodbye.


The speed of Never A Time by Genesis appears to have two speeds.

As originally released, the speed was 77.000 beats per minute.  As released on their digital; “Remaster” of the album ‘The Way We Walk’ The speed is 77.25 beats per minute.

777 milliseconds per quarter note

The charts here reflect the “remastered” version.
