** ''Music/{{Animals}}'' opens and closes with parts one and two of "Pigs On the Wing", which are significantly lighter in tone than the other songs, and serve as a framing device of sorts for the main narrative.

* Several Music/{{Genesis}} albums do this. ''Selling England By The Pound'' ends with a short piece that is basically a reprise of the opener, "Dancing With The Moonlit Knight". ''A Trick Of The Tail'' opens with "Dance on a Volcano" and ends with "Los Endos", which both have many of the same riffs and melodies. The live album ''Seconds Out'' plays around with them: It opens with "Squonk", which also has similaries to the other two songs mentioned, and ends with medley of "Dance On A Volcano" and "Los Endos".

** It begins with "The Ring In Return", which consists of an intro, then a short musical interlude, and then a male voice saying "Hello, Apollo, where should I begin?". In the lyric book, the last line of the last song (excluding the hidden one) is "Pray for us all...my dear Appollo(sic) I'll be burning Star IV" (the actual line that is sung is just "Pray for us all" over and over.)
** Also, the first album, "Second Stage Turbine Blade", has the song "Devils in Jersey City" (not the first song, but close to the beginning), which has a line towards the end--"Why won't you drive me home?". Towards the end of the album, we have "Junesong Provision", which has a line "To drive down...where's Wednesday? where;s Wednesday?". The last song (The End Complete V: On The Brink) of the last album (No World For Tomorrow) has the last line "so long, amory...please drive me home one last time..."

* EltonJohn's ''Empty Sky'' goes through an unusual one of these. The last track is a medley of "Gulliver", a ballad, "It's Hay-Chewed", a jazzy instrumental jam, and a rough patchwork of the songs from the album, starting with "Empty Sky" (which opened the album) and ending with the scream that ended "Gulliver" (this section appropriately titled "Reprise").
