The man then burns his wife's house down out of spite while she and their six-year-old daughter are inside, but [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone upon realizing that he still loves them]], he rushes into the burning building to save them. [[spoiler:The wife presses charges against her husband, and wins custody of their daughter in prison. However, with lack of evidence to support that the husband had indeed burned the house down, the husband is released until the next day. The husband drives to a motel, and upon being faced with a heavy amount of jail time and realizing he can't survive without his family, commits suicide in his motel room.]]

* [[JapanesePopMusic Akina Nakamori's]] 1986 album ''Fushigi''. Fushigi, in Japanese, means "strange" and that's a word that can best be used to describe the album. Nakamori had been one of the biggest idols in Japan at the time (along with Seiko Matsuda) but decided she needed [[SomethingCompletelyDifferent a new sound]] if only for an album thus she enlisted the help of the band EUROX to create an album that would embody the title: straying from the tried and true pop/idol mold with densely layered and droning instrumentation combined with Nakamori's usually powerful voice being mixed and distorted so much as to sound like an echo blending into the music in what could best be described as what would happen if CocteauTwins decided to make a J-Pop album.

to:

* Music/DanielAmos, upon reinventing themselves as a NewWave band, embarked on an ambitious four-album concept series, ''The Alarma Chronicles'', intended as a wake-up call for American Christians. The first album, ''Music/{{Alarma}}'' (1981), was about the corruption of the Church--a scathing satire of Christians' shortcomings. ''Music/{{Doppelganger}}'' (1983) was about the corruption of the Self--a reflection and acknowledgement of one's own character flaws. ''Music/VoxHumana'' (1984) was about the corruption of the World--an examination of the dehumanizing effects of materialism and new technology. And the final album, ''Music/FearfulSymmetry'' (1986), was a vision of {{Heaven}}. A single story, in four parts, ran in the liner notes of each album, further tying all of them together.

* Music/DukeEllington's ''Black, Brown and Beige'' was, in Duke's own words, "a tone parallel to the history of the Negro in America." The studio album was released in 1958--and this was a truncated revision of an even longer "jazz symphony" that Duke performed live in 1943.
