5 QUOTES WITH «UP-TEMPO»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word up-tempo.
1
Eddie Floyd
People know me for up-tempo songs because of my hits.
2
Taylor Hawkins
I always thought if I had a band it would have the energy and feel of early Police, since that's where my roots are, and then the harmonies of the Eagles, and the technique of King Crimson or something like that. Fast, up-tempo, beat-the-hell-out-of-the-drums, because that's my style. Energy, but sophistication, rhythmically and melodically.
3
Jordan Knight
My heart has always been in more up-tempo music you can dance to.
4
Bob Seger
Certain songs are almost like folk songs, which I love. I love folk music, and if you listen to 'Live Bullet,' there's 'Jody Girl,' which is almost a folk song, and I've always loved folk music. Quiet music, I don't try to do that with - I try to set a mood. But most of the stuff I do enjoy recording is up-tempo, and yes, I try to recreate that.
5
Diane Warren
I don't just do power ballads. I have a lot of up-tempo stuff, too - like 'Can't Fight the Moonlight.'
