Can you explain better what you mean by speeded up? Tempo and beat mean the same thing, so I don't know what you mean when you say that tempo is speeded up but the beat isn't.

The best way I could describe it was that there was no breaks in the songs at all. No place for a singer to take a breathe in the songs. The words just followed one right after the other. It would be like me typing this post like this : Thesongswerejusttoofast. But I haven't noticed this happening anymore.

Well, it's now 2013 and Sirius 7 and in some cases Sirius 8 are both definitely speeding up the tempo on certain songs. Not only that, but apparently they're not using the latest technology because the pitch is slightly different too. WHY???? They don't sell commercials. This bastardizes the music I grew up on. Any insights? Anyone?? Do they thing we're just too stupid notice? In some cases, it's so offensive that I feel the need to change channels. I mean, come one, isn't Andy Gibbs' voice high enough already?

I listen to "70's" in my work truck every workday while driving. I really hadn't noticed this. Ill be listening for it next week. Don't know if it will be noticeable in the loud work truck tho. No idea why they would do it, however.

Well they certainly don't need the time to run ads. I hope when I next listen all will be back to normal. I heard a song yesterday on the 70's on 7 of the Jackson Five and it was so fast they almost sounded like the original Alvin and the Chipmunks--for those of us old enough to remember the original Alvin and the Chipmunks :D :lol:

Uh, Simon? Theodore? Alvin? Alvin? ALVIN!

OK!! :D:D
