What one thing does Lap of the Gods (Revisited), The Millionaires Waltz, and Drowse all have in common? I thought of this on my way to school this morning...let's see which muscian here can figure it out if they don't know already!

I don't think 'Drowse' is in 3/4. I may be wrong.

Is it that they're all songs? Or maybe that they're all songs by Queen? In other words, I have no clue.

Der, anyone knows that. It was sort of silly stating the obvious...that is that Tony Blair is made of goats..

They are all in triple-time or variants thereof.

I'd say Drowse and ITLOTG are in 6/8, and TMW is mostly in 3/4.

Flash, you mean they have stanzic subdivisions which ARE NOT hemistetically ultra-rhythmic. Sheesh.

Look for the first beat. The first beat is "heavier" then the others if you understand. ONE two THree four ONE two THree four, or in 3/4 ONE two thre ONE two three etc etc
