Happy 9/16

or is it? Still after two years I have not found a song solely in 9/16. Yah, maybe there will be some bars of 9/16 here and there in some tunes but never the whole thing. The only thing I have is this crusty counterpoint MIDI style example I composed way back in the day....

but would like something a bit more... exciting.. revealing... interesting...
Can anyone think of any? Maybe I need to look in the Persian and Classical categories.. or I'll just have to write some more.

I've never had a satisfactory explanation of how two meters such as 9/8 and 9/16 are meaningfully different.

There would of course be a difference in notation and a hint that the tempo might be different but surely they are the same meter? There's more difference between the same 9/8 grouped 3+3+3 or grouped 3+2+2+2 than I can see between 9/8 and 9/16.
