091 Songs in Songs

Sometimes songs are simple, short ideas that easily make sense together, and somewhat predictably repeat themselves. Some songs are not like this at all. Some have multiple movements, even in short periods of time, they change keys, they change tempos, they change writers even. It sometimes feels like there are little (or big) songs within the song. Here are some examples that I like:

A Day In The Life – The Beatles

Up In Arms – Foo Fighters

Band On the Run – Paul McCartney & Wings

No Sugar Tonight / New Mother Nature – The Guess Who

Those Thieving Birds (Part 1)/Strange Behaviour/Those Thieving Birds (Part 2) – Silverchair

Bones – Saves The Day

One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer – George Thorogood & The Destroyers

Rude Mood/Hide Away (Live) – Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble

American Eulogy (Mass Hysteria/Modern World) – Green Day

Step It Out Mary / The Hunter’s Purse – Scatter The Mud

Black Wave/Bad Vibrations – Arcade Fire
