I'm looking for a song that starts slow and hits an intense climax mid-song then falls again at the end for a skit. Any ideas?

Asked by Sune1ope (7points) April 3rd, 2012

It’s for a skit, something with lyrics that aren’t terribly distracting would be awesome.

Welcome to Fluther! Nothing comes to mind immediately, but I’ll think about it. Something is dancing around in my mind.

Lonely House from Street Scene. (an oldie) It’s kind of haunting as the person singing reacts to the loneliness he/she is feeling alone in the city and it trails off at the end.

Oh! You Pretty Things and Space Oddity by David Bowie.
Dogs by Pink Floyd, and virtually anything else by them. Check out Echoes, Time and Comfortably Numb, while you’re at it.

Stairway to Heaven does that.

Another welcome to Fluther!

Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now is the first one to come to mind. There are so many covers for it that if you need a version without lyrics, Here’s one played by The Royal Philosophic Orchestra.

The lyrics might be a bit distracting, but Dance Yrself Clean.

Freebird, Skynyrd, or Long Time, Boston. I’m not a tuber, sorry.

The granddaddy of intense crescendo songs has got to be Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Also almost any song written by Jim Steinham.

Maria, from Westside Story starts and ends softly with an ecstatic middle.

There are so many Tool songs that fit that description, if that’s the style of music you are looking for.

I just heard an old Juice Newton song, Total Eclipse, that is a good one too!

I was also thinking of Bohemian Rhapsody, but another one that comes to mind is Eminence Front by the Who
