I wrote in a previous posting that the chorus of Begin Again sounds like it has a melody in 4/4 meter (4 beats per measure) on top of instrumental backing that is in 3/4 (3 beats per measure) -- hence a polyrhythm. This is fairly uncommon in pop music; I can't think of any other polyrhythms in Corrs songs, although I might be missing one. Anyway, I contacted the producer on Twitter, and she confirmed that this is indeed what the song is doing:

I also contacted Anto (who plays guitar on the recording) on Twitter, but have not heard back from him.

Pretty neat!
