You must see the movie, the sand in my eyes
I walk through a desert song, when the heroine dies


Then when the music changes into a funky, darker tone from 1:55 to 3:15 or so.

David Bowie - The Secret Life Of Arabia - YouTube

On the subject of Finn-related songs, I submit Neil Finn's "Sinner", notably the part from about 2:48 to 2:54. I love how his voice and the music rise and rise and rise and then just completely tumbles back down. Especially given what the song's about...sounds like a last, desperate reach or plea or something.

(Not sure what the video has to do with the lyrics, though.)

Next pick would be Guster's "Satellite", which was the first thing that popped into my head upon seeing this thread.

Guster - Satellite w/ lyrics - YouTube

I LOVE this song. Particularly fond of the music in it. I like at around 0:07 minutes in, when the sparkly, shimmery (I dunno, best words I can come up with to describe it), up and down sort of music kicks in. And I like the guitar that quietly plays in the background during the chorus, too.

But I think my favorite bit has to be from about 3:00 to 3:30. Every time I hear that part I feel like I want to be driving through the desert areas of the southwestern U.S. with a group of friends, at night, with stars twinkling up above. Either that, or the polar opposite-a dusty open road on an early summer afternoon, sun beating down and sky as pale blue and clear as far as the eye can see. It's just a great, great driving song and I always feel happy when I listen to it.

And final pick for this go-round, chosen 'cause I heard it at work tonight: Buddy Holly's "That'll Be The Day", at 1:48, simply because it sounds so cool.

Buddy Holly - That'll Be The Day - YouTube

A couple that have come to mind:

Cut Copy - Pharaohs and Pyramids @ 3:35-3:45

Radiohead - How To Disappear Completely @ 3:01-3.11 - love the melody in the frantic little bleeps that come to surface

Stone Roses - This Is The One @ 2.00-2.10 - when Ian Brown's vocal kicks in "I'd like to leave the country"

Great idea for a thread, Cobbler.

One that always sticks out in my mind is from this live, piano-only version of Someone Saved My Life Tonight:

Elton John - Someone saved my life tonight (Ephesus Amphitheatre) - YouTube

The piano fill at roughly 4:08, and the entire bridge at that, is just a sublime chord progression. It is really the one thing that inspired me to be more than just a dabbler with the piano. That entire Ephesus concert is exhibit A for why I love Elton John: the man's power with just that piano and voice is astounding. He is a master songwriter.

The lead guitar riff in The White Stripes' version of Death Letter similarly makes me want to learn guitar. Son House's original version is stellar, but Jack's sludgy electric take on it brings a new dimension to the song. The moment when he slides down into the lower register, which first occurs at 0:23, always gets to me.

Death Letter - The White Stripes - YouTube

Then there is Radiohead: the "you'll go to hell" line of Nude, the horn appearance in Codex, the opening notes of Everything in Its Right Place...the list goes on.

Oh, and speaking of Floyd's Echoes, the moment when it breaks into that funk-groove around the 7:00 mark is brilliant. The seering guitar in the Live at Pompeii version only enhances it.

While I'm trying to remember some favorite moments, these two have popped up for no apparent reason:

The Who - Baba O'riley - YouTube
3:30-5:07...I would go see them live just to hear this part of Baba O'Riley.
REM - Texarkana + lyrics - YouTube
Mike Mills' bass part throughout the track, as well as 1:55-2:22.

Considering that's one of the greatest indie rock songs in history, I can't pick a single moment.

I can't listen to European Oils without Painter In Your Pocket. Crazily good 2 track combo. I remember being blown away by both the first time I heard them.

Then there's Looters' Follies, which is like the best Bowie song the man himself didn't write.

2:00 on, the piano is truly haunting:

The Zombies - 7 - Changes - YouTube

1:15, man that's got to be one of my favorite choruses of all time:

Silver Trembling Hands - The Flaming Lips - YouTube

The bit that comes in towards the end of Radiohead's Weird Fishes (chiming?)

The 'for a moment' part of Radiohead's Karma Police.

And for Axver who was picking bits from Crowded House's Together Alone, I'd also nominate the musical escalation that comes in at the end of Distant Sun.
