hello people, i am in need of your help again. y'all may remember i asked for song suggestions of a certain nature a while back. my little sister, delightful creature that she is, has now challenged me to make a comp of songs with pauses. dramatic ones. like in the middle. the only one i can think of right now is possibly the Worst Example Ever:


i need help. i know there are more songs with pauses out there. i this goes back to me still being angry about the fact that she could kick my ass all the way up to twelfth grade and probably still could if we fought now. um, perhaps that is an issue better addressed in therapy. kay thanks very much bye.

This could be a great mix!

Since I'm on a major Sloan kick right now, how about my fave part of the song, Underwhelmed:

We were talkin' about people
That eat meat
I felt like an ass
'Cause I was one
She said, "It's okay,"
But I felt like
I just ate my young... uhhh

Stone Roses - "I Am the Resurrection" has a big pause right before the big instrumental ending.

Elvis' or Frank Sinatra's "I Did It My Way" (Syd didn't pause; too fast)
The Jam's "That's Entertainment"

...sorry I can't think of anything recent. My brain's fried from the streetcar ride.

Fields of the Nephilim - Dawn Razor
Led Zepplin - Immigrant Song
(I'm sure Zepplin has several)
Ween - Captain Fantasy

Doesn't Spinal Tap have a song with a punctuated pause?

The Feelies - "Raised Eyebrows"
Modest Mouse - "Teeth Like God's Shoeshine" (pause. drum thump. "GODGODGODDAMN!!")

And, yeah, Chris, "Whole Lotta Love" has one too.

I'll add more as I can think of them.

How about "Wish" by Nine Inch Nails? Right after one of the first verses, there is a complete 1/2 second cut in the music. It's pretty cool sounding if y'all have ever heard it. The contrast of the pause to the fuzzed out distortion is neat.
