Does anyone know why eye of the tiger has a weird timing in the intro riff but doesn't have this in the outro?
Basically the repeat(bars 9-12 with timing change at bar 10) is delayed by an 8th instead of coming like it does every other time this riff repeats.
It's a pretty weird thing to do I think and I'm curious if there is any logic because surely it isn't a mistake or a "Just leave it in, it sounds cool".
The blue is the rhymic motive used throughout the song for the riff. The red is delayed by an 8th and it occurs only once in the entire song.
I'm not trying to be critical or post a nonsense question. I'm genuinely curious to the possible logic that is involved in that decision. Part of the reason is that, while I like to play things like the record, It's just a minute thing to remember and I feel it is more distracting than helpful in this case. I'd rather play it consistent unless there is a good reason why I shouldn't... I'm hoping there is a good reason besides "That's how they did it".
