Listening

sanguine currents rush
over a back beat tempo --
carmen corpus

I too love the back beat tempo...but what is carmen corpus? Looked it up on the web, and it's maybe a person's name?

or the body of Carmen?

or something to do with Bizet's opera?

or...!

@Beth - poor excuse for pidgin Latin :-) [songs of the body]

BTW Eric Carmen's musical corpus contains I'm a Rocker:

Backbeat boogie got a hold on me
Make me wanna jump and shout!
Twistin' like a top, I never wanna stop tonight
You surely look like a magazine
And you can move like I never seen
Reelin' and a rockin' babe
Come on and dance with me!

After Kitehorse, I don't want to ruin good things. I was wondering my self, thank you for the explain.
I like your back beat tempo too, at first I read it as 'back seat tempo.' :-)

the phrase "sanguine currents" conjurs such a laid back experience.
