120 bpm is one beat every half of a second
That's actually how I keep track of time without a clock if I need to count seconds - I can never internalize exactly how long or short a second is, but I do remember how fast Route 201 from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl is.

Little known music facts, part 2

-It is a common false stereotype that all trumpet players are arrogant. In fact, all musicians are arrogant and trumpet players are simply the loudest.

-All pianists are gay. Chopin and Liszt were lovers, and Fanny Hensel enjoyed a brief tryst with Clara Schumann during the latter’s youth.

-Euphonium was voted “Most ‘This Can’t Be a Real Instrument’” among non-musicians.

-Schubert died at the young age of 31, which is especially astonishing when you consider that if you played all of his lieder from start to finish, the duration would be roughly 37 years.

-Every so-called atonal piece is actually in F-sharp minor. Look it up.

-Chopin’s famous funeral march in B-flat minor is one of the lengthiest piano pieces in the repertoire, a single performance lasting anywhere from eight minutes to what feels like several hours.

I think I've had to use Megalovania as a 120-bpm benchmark timer song before.

Little known music facts, part 3

-Robert Schumann was known for writing in the personas of fictional characters he invented, including Florestan, Eusebius, and Mama Sass

-“Mazurka” is both a type of dance and what people in old times used to call their mother’s hurka

-If you don’t immediately like a piece of music the first time you hear it, you will hate it forever and should not under any circumstances try to understand why others find it interesting

-No one has ever heard of Scriabin

-Beethoven was known during his life as the “piano bang bang guy”

-Some contemporary composers are known for using extended techniques, such as using a non-percussive instrument percussively, playing directly on strings of a piano, or screaming in frustration because you just wanted to play romantic music dammit

Everything in this sentence is completely opposite for me and Mega Man II.

Oh lol when I posted my music fact, I didn't read any other posts and just assumed this topic was serious.

How wrong I was.
