Name a song with a bit you wish were longer!

Songwriter

We've all had songs with those bits: A great riff, a fantastic bridge, or insane beautiful drums. The only problem? They are (sometimes relentlessly) cut short in the studio version.

 

I know we may have many of these songs in our heads. But I start with the one I am still **bleep** about.

 

"Fences" by Phoenix has the most irresistible outro. It ticks in at 3:27 and, well, fades out in a sneeze.

One song that comes to mind is “50 Million Year Trip (Downside Up)” by Kyuss, where I wish the instrumental guitar solo outro would last longer; it starts 4 minutes into the song and fades out at the end (5:49), however I wish they would have kept jamming on this part for a longer time, since it’s my favorite part of the song:

For now, I can think of two. I already like them, and that's what makes me wish that they were longer.

 

The first one is perfect for a wedding, or a wedding video. If I get married, I'm definitely using it (most likely with another song on this album). Anyway, the second one is a shortened and a capella rendition of it, but is cool as a seeing off/signing off song.

And this one has a nice section from ~5:20 to 6:00:

This song has a very cool solo that kicks in around 8:10:

Here's a song from an album that I discovered through a recommendation from TreyAnastasio on here.

I like the music, a lot, but this particular song it's way too short. I definitely recommend the album and band, for the music style, though
