Here’s a little game I would like to play from time to time. In this post I’m looking for something very specific that is a recurring theme throughout all of these wonderful songs.

No, it isn’t something painfully obvious like all the artists are from Michigan. Some examples in the future may be like that but today, I’m looking for something specific that if you listen closely it may become obvious.

The clue is that it is something rhythmic that comes from a specific geographic location. I want to know what the catchall phrase is for the rhythm and where it comes from.

Good luck!
