What are the itty-bitty bits you love in certain songs?


Whenever I hear the Eagles sing "Take it (very dramatic pause) to the limit one more time," I just love that little silent pause. For me, it makes the whole song.

Similarly, when Men At Work sing "Who could it be bow?" and the horn kicks in the those five notes, I just love it.

When Bob Seeger sings the chorus to "Old Time Rock and Roll" and the drummer does that short drum roll, I go crazy. It sounds so cool.

You have any tiny, tiny parts of songs that you just love?

Shania Twain's "Any Man of Mine", they could make a whole song out of the ending line-dance part: https://youtu.be/8N2k-gv6xNE?t=193

The Breeders "Drivin on 9", the fiddle part really works for me, especially when the drums come in: https://youtu.be/GPGGDFt1D2c?t=114

Metallica "The Struggle Within", that pause and cool heavy riff is awesome: https://youtu.be/SFdN3syFxeY?t=170

The "da-da-DA-da" at 28 seconds into "Springtime for Hitler," and the big buildup to the chorus line at 1:38. The cutaways to Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder are hilarious!

The short guitar part at the end of each line of Brenda Lee's "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree."

In Santana's "Soul Sacrifice," the four-beat silence just before the end.

About 2:20 into Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls" the drum riff is just perfect.

https://youtu.be/_Uu12zY01ts?t=940


Two notes in Yes's "Yours in No Disgrace" at just the right time, at 8:12 into the over 9 minute song.

A couple from The Cars:

The guitar bit just after the third "it's all mixed up" in "All Mixed Up." 43 seconds in...

The awesome break/segue from "Shooby Doo" to "Candy-O" on their second album.

A vocal one from Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody: Gotta leave you all being and face the truth.

The way the singer's voice gets deeper and huskier on the last two words is genius.

Tom Petty's Running Down a Dream has a cool guitar part right after every time he says "running down a dream".

J. Geil's Freeze Frame - After every line the background singers go "dee-da-lee-da-dee". I end up listening to that more than the main singer.

Meat Loaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love": The dramatic drums interspersed with the chorus starting at 3:20 (link).

Thompson Square "Are You Going to Kiss Me or Not": Through out the song, the line "Are you going to kiss me or not" is sung as a duet, except for at one point at 2:15 when only the male singer sings it. I've always loved that particular part of the song. (link)

The Who, "Behind Blue Eyes"

"But my dreams, they aren't as empty as my conscience seems to be"

In the middle of the word "dreams", Roger Daltrey's voice casually pops up about an octave, then scales back down, hitting every note perfectly.

It's not nearly as easy as Daltrey makes it seem.

That is one of my favorites as well. Not complicated, but just . . . one of my favorite drum fills/transitions. A highlight moment of the song.

That actually reminded me of another similar spot for me; the drum fill coming out of the instrumental solo back into the verse at the end of Dave Matthews' Band's "Ants Marching" (4:04-4:07)

We actually have a poster named after this piece, K364:

Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante in E-Flat Major, from 5:08 to 5:25.

Then there's this, from Mozart's 40th symphony, 1st movement from 5:50 to 6:33. Yeah, longer than a moment, sorry.

Lastly, there's the ending to the 4th movement of his 41st symphony, from here to the end.

In The Band's "It Makes No Difference" from 3:50-3:55 out of the bridge and back into the chorus. The open-close hi-hat line and simple fill to the break when all the instruments stop except for the soaring echoy strings, and then the drum + vocal pickup into the harmony at the top of the chorus. Musical perfection.

I am not fluent in music terminology.

There's a part in "Tempted" by Squeeze where the drummer does something very different from what he has been doing up to that point that is my favorite part of that song.

I am also a huge fan of the second guitar solo in "Dogs" by Pink Floyd, possibly because that's usually the part of the song I'd be hearing when I got back from the bathroom when I was a DJ in college.

Radiohead's Black Star: when the second vocal line threads in on the line "I keep falling over, I keep passing out".

Stereo MCs' Connected: the tiny bit where everything drops out. "Interstate 5, stayin' alive..."

Tori Amos' Cornflake Girl : when the bass slides in during the opening jangle.

I listen for "squeaks" from the re-positioning of the guitarist's fingers. Is there a musical term for this?

Notable squeaky songs would be Wish You Were Here, and Every Breath You Take. Lots more, but those are two of my favorites.

Blues Traveler's The Hook. The second time John Popper sings the last line of the chorus "...on that you can rely" and it's this mini vocal gymnastic, I guess it qualifies as melisma, only it's not annoying.

Add the following to the end of your YouTube urls (don't know if it works with Vimeo):

&t=3m14s

&t=3m28s

(You can also do &t=194s if you know how many seconds have elapsed.)

Yes! I don't know what they're called either but I like that too, especially on WYWH.

Sort of related is a sound toward the end of How Your Remind Me by Nickelback (shut up man, it's a good tune ).

He sings "This is how you remind me" then there's a rest and a subtle (strum? pluck?) of a string. Just seems very well placed and I always listen closely to hear it.

Or, you can right click on the video at the appropriate moment and then left click on "Copy video URL at current time." Your computer will automatically record the URL for you to transfer to your post.

The song Pepper by the Butthole Surfers has a line that I've always loved.
I can taste you on my lips and smell you in my clothes
Cinnamon and sugary and softly spoken lies

If the song is on when I stop my car I always wait to here that line before getting out.

In the 1982 Patrick Cowley remix of Donna Summer's I Feel Love, there is a little synth motif that kicks in after the the first vocal line after the big instrumental in the middle. I freaking love it.

You'll find it round about the 2:52 mark here, but I'm posting the link from 2:40 so you can hear it in context.

Two bits from "Do Ya," one of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite bands (Electric Light Orchestra):

The ascending series of vocal notes after the bridge (at 2:29), backed by the strings: "But I (I! I! I! I!!!)"

The drum fill, with the sound of a jet plane in the background (at 2:48)

The spoke intro in David Bowie's Modern Love. What does it mean? Why is it there? Why is it simply discarded for the rest of the song? It puts an interesting bit of chaos into an otherwise mechanical repetitive song and somehow makes the whole piece shine more brightly.

In Rage Against The Machine's "Freedom" when Zach whispers "anger is a gift" right before the song explodes back in. At 3:42 here.

Also in the Black Keys' "Tighten Up" where the guitar is played backwards or melts or some shit, I don't even know. At 3:00 here.

Mine is actually a transition between two songs, "Ashes of American Flags" and "Heavy Metal Drummer" on Wilco's "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot". The last part of Ashes of American Flags kind of devolves into a series of random noises and sound clips, ending with a very distorted version of the piano riff that starts Heavy Metal Drummer. Then a brief pause, a couple of beats from a drum machine, then the actual intro to Heavy Metal Drummer.

My description sucks, but it's very well done, and fun to listen to.

In CCR's "Down On The Corner," someone lets out a whistle during the instrumental break. (1:22 in this video.) Just a single note that lasts a fraction of a second - but somehow that whistle makes the whole song for me.

Two favorites:

Stones, Satisfaction: Keith, expecting his guitar part to later be overdubbed with horns, is a little sloppy with the fuzz switch, hitting it too late at 1:39, then overcompensating by hitting it too early at 2:37. Doesn't detract at all from the finished product, and puts you right there in the studio with them.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7MdZcYwEQ8

Zappa, You're Probably Wondering Why I'm Here: the momentary break at 3:02 is puncuated with a hilariously understated tambourine ( tap ) that has made me grin, without fail, for 50 years.

In 'All You Need Is Love', in the second-to-last beat of the first verse, there's a a single-note banjo solo. I think it's the only place the Beatles ever used a banjo.

The two mini bass solos in the Beatles' "I'll Cry Instead" make that song for me. Without those two little bits, the song would be largely forgettable, imo.

This line from the Turtles' "Happy Together"
https://youtu.be/mRCe5L1imxg?t=72

I asked someone who had taken a couple of music theory classes, what makes it so striking? I think they said something about chromatics or key change?


JohnT, I love that bit from Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante!

I also like finding the mistakes or oddities in older rock recordings (some people have mentioned the fret hand squeaks) and will often replay them. Things like when they physically turn on an overdrive box. Modern recordings are too squeaky clean so I like hearing the more raw, put down on tape recordings from the 60's and 70's.

Are you talking about the transition from the verses to the chorus? The song goes from minor tonality to major tonality, so that might be what you're picking up on.

Another song from the same era or thereabouts that pulls a similar trick is "Things We Said Today" by the Beatles. The verses are mostly a hypnotic Am-Em strum, and when the B section kicks in (not really a conventional chorus, more like a bridge), it modulates into a rocking A major progression.

Actually, that song does contain one of my favorite harmonic moments, when the Am-Em strum is broken up by the line "someday when I'm lonely wishing you weren't so far away," I always get a little shiver from the change in mood that chord progression brings to the song (along with the chromatic melody decent on the first half of that line.) I just love the harmonic "color" there.

The first thought that came to me is the little paradiddle-esque drum fill on "Sultans of Swing" after the verse "And says at last just as the time bell rings". Ever since I first heard that song back in high school or earlier, that fill has always tickled me.

IMO music theory is never needed, or enough, to explain why something sounds good.

But I can say that the major 7th chord is always interesting to me because it provides a kind of wistful feel. It's not really unusual, but it's a bit uncommon to get there by dropping a whole step from the tonic and inverting it like they do. Uncommon things are always interesting. That's a fun thing to listen to, thanks for bringing it up.

The main reason to listen to “November Rain” is the instrumental ending.

I like the random “woo hoo” inserted into Dire Straits “Walk of Life”.

The ending of the Beatles “I Am The Walrus” where they quote Shakespeare. “Sit down, father, rest you.”

The one-bar pause at the beginning of “Waiting Room” by Fugazi.

The part of “Flor Palida” by Polo Montanez where they play what to me sounds like a violin.

In What a Sweet Thing that Was. the Shirelles singer slightly delays singing "Surrender" in the middle of the song--brings a smile.
The Who in Won't Get Fooled Again--the interplay between the rhythm guitar and drums about 3/4 of the way through the recording on Who's Next--so cool. It really rocks.
Dylan in Sooner or Later One of Us Must Know (B on B) he draws out the "...for gooooood" in the first verse--the guy is a genius+. Listening recently to his 60s albums amazes me not just for all the little gems I have stumbled across but the quality and creativeness in the arrangements and over-all sound are just something else.
Love Richards' acrobatic lead break in Ya Ya's Sympathy for the Devil. And the groove they get in towards the end of Honky Tonk Women, and ALL of Carol.
I always liked it when the bass came in on Smoke on the Water. Just recently listened to Enter Sandman, and the intro with its little variations are great to focus on--due mostly to the drumming.
I could go on....
Oh yeah I menitoned this in a similar thread here years ago--the lead guitar intro to the Kingsmen's Money.
And the snideness in the song titles: Check Out Her Mama, and First I Look at the Purse!
