Lucius 5/4 time song (33) RE: 5/4 time song 20 Sep 00

I know that Take Five and Living in the Past and Everything's Alright are notated as 5/4, but I've always thought that it would be more correct to notate them as 6/8+2/4, with the eighth note as constant. The only two tunes that I hear as 5/4 without using compound meter are Holst's Mars and Mussgorsky(sp?)'s Pictures at an Exhibition (The Promenade).Oh--and Life is just a bbowl of F***** cherries. My two cents.
