Alltime favorite 3 song sequence
« on: November 13, 2012, 00:55 »
Title is self explanatory, it always seems easy to find back to back songs that are just killer on an album > Paranoid Android >SHSA, or Visions of Johanna > Sooner or Later....

But finding that elusive third song that completes a trinity of songs is IMO very rare.  Based on fluidity, the atmosphere, and character development the songs create what are your favorite 3 song sequences... (Greatest hit albums obviously don't count)

I've got two going now, but I think Bruce just eeks past Bob on this one:

    An easily identifiable, iconic character in this sequence, embodying all of the classic Springsteen lyrical motifs.  The pinnacle of his career is these 3 songs.

    1a (not second cause these are so close)

    Southwestern aura is personified brilliantly.  Which is why Desire is always gonna be my favorite Dylan album.

    Being an New Jersey guy, I can nearly 100% relate to the  Darkness on the Edge Town album sequence, which is what puts it slightly above the Desire sequence for me

    Three tracks in a row? That's a tough one! Five tracks in a row, though, nothing comes close to this:

    Crown of Love into Wake Up into Haïti into Rebellion into In the Backseat. Arcade Fire, of course.

    back when I used to run - or what I should say when my knees let me

    these 3 were always well received on a long run ( it was a few years ago )

    The final 3 songs of R.E.M.'s 'Automatic for the People'.






    (which is also probably my all-time favourite individual song, or at least one of the absolute favourites)

    That was the first thing that came to mind. Another good option would be the final 3 songs from Bob Dylan's 'Blood on the Tracks': 'If You See Her, Say Hello', 'Shelter from the Storm' and 'Buckets of Rain'. That last song could also be nominated for best closing song on an album, though 'Street Spirit' would give it a hard time.
    And I feel I need to mention Elbow here too. 'Mirrorball' - 'Grounds for Divorce' - 'An Audience With the Pope' is a brilliant combination of songs. The first two songs of that album ('Starlings' and 'The Bones of You') are at least as brilliant though, so that could be another 5 song combination to rival Arcade Fire.

    Why stop at 3 songs..? Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon is the ultimate in conjoined production. 10 tracks, one after the other, in a triumph of music.

    Game over, I win.  ;D

    "Santa Baby". Hate it. Also "My Favorite Things", mostly because it's not a Christmas song but there's a few versions that have won me over Ernie's fault.
