Holy Crap…This just might be right up the alley for Alan Parsons Project!
Chop up at your leisure:
“The Ace of Swords” - Has three or four tempo changes in a 3 minute instrumental…chop it the way you see fit.
The last two minutes of “Turn of a Friendly Card, pt. 2”
Also, check the whole video…there are other instrumentals wrapped inside songs with some lyrics.
“The Gold Bug” - Think Spaghetti Western here until the keyboards show up.
“Lucifer” - go :50 in…another Spaghetti Western hijacked by keyboards.
“Pipeline” - about as Jazzy as APP gets.
“Mammagamma” - Pretty much the Flagship Song for the Electronica genre.
“In the Lap of the Gods” - First 3:20 of the song is dramatic, last half more up tempo.
“Time Machine” - Moderate beat.
“I Robot” - Funkified Keyboards about 1:00 in.
“A Dream within a Dream” - After the first 1:00 (Orson Wells Narration), the song starts slowly and builds to a strong finish…it’s the prelude to “The Raven” with the same bass beat.
“Pavane” - Part of the “Fall from the House of Usher” song…this might be good for technical pieces in a program.
Where’s the Walrus?" - Very UP TEMPO instrumental
“Breakaway” - Keyboard Beat, Heavy Sax…great beat…maybe too fast later in the song.
And this song is the one I think will be done by a pro/olympic skater one day…maybe your daughter will be that skater: “Paseo de Gracia” - a great dramatic piece with excellent spanish guitar
Yeah, and I guess you can use this overused song… “Sirius”
I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more…but there is a lot to chew on here.
