The CarsRock Charts continues with The Cars, the popular new wave quintet from Boston. “Touch And Go,” from the Panorama album is an exercise in meter change. The basic feel of the verse (letters A, C, E) is an interesting two-measure 5/4 pattern, which shifts to a driving 4/4rock beat during the chorus (letters B, D, F). Those new to time changes should be reminded that while the meter (or count) changes, the tempo does not. The pulse remains the same. The drummer is David Robinson.
