Some of the BPM listings are BS!!!

Ok, this is something that I wondered about, but after doing compared songs I've figured out that some of the BPMs don't accurately reflect the scrolling speed. Some of the best examples of this are SOTA songs as comparing the two versions of Back Into The Light shows that the DistorteD version actually scrolls slower and matches the bpm listed better as the 10th style version looks more like 155-160 bpm than anything. Another good example is Don't Be Afraid Myself which is listed at 165 bpm, but I have to set it to the settings I use for 180 bpm. I'm going to work on a full list of songs that are notibly faster or slower than the given bpms so that I know how to adjust my settings correctly.

There are a few DDR songs with speed changes not shown.
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.
