I was counting it in the same way you'd count 12/8, cept it's 24/16 broken down to 10+3+1+3+7
Again, I had to slow it way down and listen to it for like an hour to really pinpoint what the rhythm was doing. I was really effing hard, but I eventually established the groove in my head and could starting singing ideas and stuff to it.
Sure, it'd be easiest to just call it swung 4/4 with some offbeats, but it's not just the percussion doing this. I think the phrasing tends to dance around this rhythm as well, so it's a somewhat established characteristic of the song.
I mainly broke it down cos I wanted to play with this rhythm myself eventually, cept in 24/8, something a little more manageable when you can't always "play around with speed and interleave settings", haha : P
edit: or I could just be full of shit and not even realize it, haha. i'm 90% sure this would be how it'd be broken down, as far as counting the rhythm out. i'll bust out some staff paper eventually and transcribe this tune to see how it all actually works and bump it all back here with some scans or something :PPPPPPPPPPPPPPP
