* The George Jones and Tammy Wynette song "Golden Ring," opens with a couple looking at a wedding ring in a pawnshop. He buys the ring for her and they get married, but eventually they break up and she throws the ring on the floor as she leaves. In the last verse, another couple is in a pawnshop looking at a ring; persumably the same one from the first verse.

* ''Days of Future Passed'', by Music/TheMoodyBlues: the first track ("The Day Begins") concludes with the poem "Morning Glory", while the final track ("Nights in White Satin") concludes with the poem "Late Lament". The opening lines of "Morning Glory" and the final lines of "Late Lament" are the same lines regarding the moon, although in "Late Lament", Mike Pinder adds emphasis at the end of the reading to indicate a sense of self-determination. (The album is based on the events of a single day; as one day ends, another begins.)
** Also by the Moodies, ''On the Threshold of a Dream'': the first track ("In the Beginning") starts with a howling-wind sound effect, which also ends the last track ("Have You Heard? Part 2").

* The first and third verses of Tanya Tucker's "Two Sparrows in a Hurricane" are nearly identical, with only one word ("eighteen" to "eighty-three") changed. The single change in word recontextualizes the end of said verse ("It's just a matter of time / 'Til they spread their wings and fly").

* Side two of the [[Music/JohnMcLaughlin Mahavishnu Orchestra's]] ''Birds of Fire'' album begins with a fade-in drumroll on "One Word" and ends with a fade-out drumroll on "Resolution". The band would often play these two songs as a medley despite being separated by other tracks on the album.

* After a very experimental album, the last song on Music/LedZeppelin's ''In Through the Out Door'', "I'm Gonna Crawl", is a blues song, much like the style of their first album. This would be the last album Led Zeppelin would record (''Coda'' was a collection of Outtakes).
