A fun time signature in which there are five beats to a measure, and a quarter note gets one beat. It is generally broken into two 'segments', one with three beats and one with two. So, using the Mexican food counting system, you can count this as "burrito taco" or "taco burrito".

Dave Brubeck's Take Five is a good example of a tune if 5/4.
