Group song: pairings and more
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:02:06 PM »
Let's give praise to our favourite "combined" songs. You know, pairings like "An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart" and larger groupings like "Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End." Here's a couple of mine:

Tool's "Wings For Marie/10,000 Days." Maynard turned this 17-minute two-part epic piece of music by his bandmates into an elegy for his mother.



Yes' "Long Distance Runaround/The Fish." In one of their more playful moments, the band chose to join up one of their poppier numbers with Chris Squire's multitracked bass piece. Instant sunshine gives way to an almost instant night, as Steve Howe's guitar quotes Chris' bass harmonic riff.


Your turn!

Doctor Jimmy/The Rock by The Who. I count them as one song and they're #6 on my top ten songs of all time. The transition is so perfect. The beginning of the album starts with I Am the Sea, The Real Me, Quadrophenia, and Cut My Hair all flowing together also.
