"Math Rock" (And/Or Songs Containing Numbers or Math Terms)

This topic is wide open. Could be actual Math Rock, with complex rhythms or weird time signatures, such as the band American Football with their song Never Meant: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=_NfnXdXpjL0

 

OR you could also include songs containing numbers and/or Math terms in either the title or the lyrics, such as Love Minus Zero / No Limit by Bob Dylan.

 

Whatever! Oh, and no worries if you post something that someone else has already posted here. That would just be Math Rock Squared! 🤓

A bit off topic, but loosely related. This thread reminded me of the the song "You Were on My Mind" by "We Five". Which reminded me of an episode on St Elsewhere where Dr Westphal was on the elevator and I believe it was Nurse Rosenthal who walks onto the elevator after him. He looks at her and says "When I woke up this morning, you were on my mind." She was mad at him at the time and looked at him and said "We Five", then turned around and walked off the elevator. Does anyone else remember that episode?

I don't think that you can talk about unusual, complex rhythms without mentioning Willie Nelson. It's practically a trademark of his. He often changes key and rhythm mid-stream, or varies the rhythm he plays on guitar in contrast to what is sung, or sings to a different beat than he plays. Go to any Willie video, for any song, and it's never exactly the same. And good luck if singing a duet with Willie!

I read a copy of an news article from the 50's that accused Dave Brubeck of working for the Russians. They said all the the change-ups in time signatures in his songs was done to cause confusion and disorientation in teenagers. He was trying to weaken the mental capabilities of the youth in the United States! lol

Check out Congratulations Sex by Lemuria. Catchy little tune that used to drive me crazy because you can't tap your foot to it. Once you figure it out and do the counting and keep up with the changes, it becomes a little more fun to listen to. 😉
