In an effort to prevent Covid spread the Korean government has banned some gyms from playing music which exceeds 120 beats per minute (BPM).

Apparently people sweat more if they’re listen to faster music. And in an effort to slow or halt the pandemic’s progress the Korean government doesn’t want it’s citizens to sweat when they don’t have to.

120 BPM is pretty much the industry standard for pop songs but it’s not quite as fast as the music Korean boy bands like to produce. The good news for my Korean listeners (yes, all of you !!!) is that only one of my songs on my album Present Tense exceeds 120 BPM so can listen to it your gym of choice without any problems so long as you skip that one track.

We truly live in interesting times.
