Some music trivia about the sound track. I found the original recording track of Eric Clapton playing lead guitar for the Beatles song, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, by George Harrison. Using a beat per minute online tool, I found it was 114 bpm. I then located a cover by the Classic Rock Show also at 114 bpm. That cover was selected out of 19 covers ranging from 92 to 160 bpm. The lead guitar and cover merged perfectly. The final result is an intense-emotional psycho-physiological moment. It’s caused by distinct peak-experience from a musical response. Timeless powerful emotion. Chills are more often elicited by sad music than by happy music
Harrison’s song “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” isn’t a love song. It’s a lament. Mourning for all the unrealized love that was never manifest. An opportunity cost of emotion misspent. The song conveys his dismay at the world’s unrealized potential for universal love, which he refers to as “the love there that’s sleeping”.
The song is appropriate music. Helping juxtaposition opulent excesses at Christmas time – and abject poverty of orphans worldwide. Musically induced emotional phenomena. Music is a transformative mental technology. Perceived emotional intensity. Craving.
Tears are elicited by a grace note performed before a note of the melody and falling on the beat (appoggiaturas). Shivers or gooseflesh by the onset of new harmonies.
