Gentle -> rawk -> gentle

Post by Foggy » 29 Apr 2016, 14:42

Somebody mentioned Lenny Kravitz's Field of Joy the other day, and it dawned on me that that's my favourite type of song. It starts off with acoustic / flutes, goes mental with an incongruous rocktastic solo, then winds down again in the calming manner with which it started.

Other songs that do that, Stairway to Heaven, which I don't need to link to, then there's:

Bluetones - Four Day Weekend

And Graham's Aint No Lie is a great example.

Anyone fancy helping me expand my list with a few more? Ta!

Add '5' to the list of rock gone "Electronica!!!" in the late 90s.

I love Tears! Great intro.

I can think of a rap example: Nas - One Mic. One of the best rap songs ever.
Blur: Spaceman
I'm sure there's more, I'll list them as I find them.

Yes, this type of song has a late 60s-early 70s prog vibe. Another example is:

Traffic - Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys
"Everybody's Doing It...So Do It Too...."
