Top 10 Non-Metal Songs Featuring Galloping RhythmMetal_Treasure Galloping rhythm is widely used in metal but there are non-metal songs with it and most of those non-metal
songs always give a somewhat metal feel, which I like.
Galloping rhythm is when you hear something like a horse gallop, rhythm that resembles a galloping horse. It's a very strong rhythm for a song and I definitely like the "musical gallops".
Galloping rhythm doesn't need to be featured throughout the entire song but for this list - the more, the better.

The Top Ten
This song is really well composed and performed.
You can also check out the metal cover by Gamma Ray - it sounds almost like a power metal song. Gamma Ray made the gallop and the riff more evident than it already is in the original. By the way, that cover is one of the best I know.
Why I talked about the cover? Because you know I'm not much into pop music but I've always liked this song and I wondered why until I heard the metal cover by Gamma Ray - I realized it was the galloping rhythm that got me. And the bridge. So now I know I subconsciously like galloping rhythms wherever I hear them. - Metal_Treasure
