Is there a chart somewhere that correlates what various tempo indicators translate to as far as beats per minute goes? I'm learning a piece in the Alfred's Book 1 (The Can-Can) that says it should be played 'Brightly'. What does Brightly translate to as far as a metronome setting?

Here is one Chart but there is no exact conversion. It really just depends on the sound of the song. It will vary greatly, like if it is 4/4 or 2/2 time, etc.
