Song tempo, 80 or 160?

#1

Hey guys, I wrote this track which is quite upbeat (or… is it?)
I wasn’t sure if I should mention the song tempo as 160bpm (which was the original session tempo) or 80bpm, as it could be interpreted.
What would you say?
I assume this kinda matters to someone who is looking for a peace of music for his video.

thanks for helping!

Sometimes I also confuse myself with similar question.
Well, yeah, it’s upbeat. Maybe not so much, but not downbeat either :smiley:
I mean, if I’ll decide, I’d rather make it 160.

Because the kick usually is on 1 & 3 and the snare on 2 & 4 I would say the tempo is 160bpm.
