I love the boogie-woogie part he plays in Clint Eastwood's piano blues movie, its only lasts a few seconds but it's the most memorable piece of piano I've ever heard. A musician touched by grace.

Here's a shout out to Paul Desmond.  I'm in a saxy mood today.

Dave Brubeck was once a U.S. State Department "Ambassador" traveling to several other countries playing music and spreading American goodwill.

Drum solos are so much more satisfying when other instruments, or in this case just one other instrument is playing.

THIS is why I love RP! Many, many thanks for educating this old metal head on so many different types of music....

When I discovered Dave Brubeck, it was like a drug. You can hear the crowds going wild in the live recordings, which doesn't surprise me in the least.

On my own, never would have put these 2 side by side.

That's why Radio Paradise is great :-)

"Turn the World Around" by Harry Belafonte is also in 5. Fun tune.
"Whipping Post" by the Allman Brothers is in 11 (for the verses).

Actually it is easier to groove if you count 1-2-3+1-2 (a waltz and polka).

 
In my ears, it sounds much more like 1-2, 1-2-3 than the other way round...

I believe "Money" is primarily in 7/4 time; "Breaking The Girl" is in "waltz" time: 6/8.  Other than this song, the best-known song in 5/4 time is probably the theme from the TV program "Mission: Impossible".  Nick Drake's "River Man" is also in 5/4 time.  

 
Good catch, Proclivities, I think I started answering a different question than OP asked; that is, songs featuring non-common time signatures.....which reminds me of King Crimson and Frank Zappa.  I'm also struck how different it is to try and remember what something sounds like versus what something looks like.

This fine tune is nearly 6 decades old, and still awesome.

I think the most famous (Rock) example would be Money by Pink Floyd (which happens to be a 10 rated song by me, just like this one!)

I think Radiohead has done a bit of funky time signature stuff...although I'm not a huge fan so maybe others can chime in on that.  Likewise, Tool "experimented" with 5/4 signatures too, check out the song "Schism."

And off top of my head, maybe the Red Hot Chili Peppers got funky on "Breaking the Girl" - I'd have to hear it to confirm but I could swear it is. 

And overall it's an interesting question, since most of what we here in Western music is 4/4.  Heck, check out Ravi's sitar stuff (or any authentic Indian music) and try and guess what the time signature is.  It's totally different and not easy to figure out at first due to the complexity.
