* "Question" by the Music/MoodyBlues starts off fast-paced, then slows down in the middle and speeds up again near the end. Justin Hayward originally wrote the fast and slow sections as separate songs, then put them together when he realized they were in the same key.

* The Guess Who's "American Woman" - a slow one-and-a-half minute intro followed by a slightly harder second part. The intro is commonly edited out for radio airplay.

* Music/BabylonZoo's "Spaceman" starts out like an electronic dance track with sped-up vocals, then [[LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand abruptly shifts]] into a down-tempo alternative rock dirge. The sped-up section returns at the very end.

The sped-up section returns at the very end. A Levi's jeans ad used only the sped up section, so many listeners who first heard the song in the commercial were surprised that the bulk of the song was much slower.

* One of the more noticable differences between pre-Aramary and post-Aramary SoundHorizon is that, besides [[EpicRocking getting significantly longer]], songs have taken to shifting gears or even musical genres in the middle of them.

* Ike and Tina Turner's version of [[Music/CreedenceClearwaterRevival CCR]]'s "Proud Mary". It goes from low-key and bluesy to horn-driven show stopper.

* A cornerstone of {{Music/Zomboy}}'s works, to the point of an ExaggeratedTrope. While best described as a {{Dubstep}} artist, his songs typically shuffle between multiple genres in the span of a few ''measures''. [[https://youtu.be/Wwrx6tGnkVQ Gorilla March]] provides an excellent example- the song starts in {{Chiptune}}, builds into hardcore {{Reggae}}ton which drops into [[{{Glitch}} Glitch Hop]] which becomes HarshNoise and escalates into a full {{Grindcore}} assault before downshifting into pure Glitch and then flirting with what could be described as a {{Trap|Music}}-influenced musical version of MoreDakka which suddenly flips into {{Ambient}} building into full-on orchestral ProgressiveRock, and finally ends in glitch once again. This song is only four and a half minutes long, mind you.

** "Incident at Neshabur", from the same album, starts loudly and at at fast pace, abruptly slows down and ends in a more gentle mood.

* Music/DanielAmos's “Cloak & Dagger”, from ''Music/{{Alarma}}''. The verses and chorus are zippy “spy music”; the extended outro slows down to half-time, with a languid guitar solo playing over it.

** "Sudden Heaven", from ''Music/FearfulSymmetry''. It starts off as a weird fusion of country and new wave, but for the bridge and final chorus it slows down and goes psychedelic rock.

* ProgRock is full of these, particularly acts with "chapter"-structured songs. Music/{{Rush}}'s ''2112'' is a prime example.

* {{Autechre}}: "Augmatic Disport" is a [[ProceduralGeneration generatively sequenced]] glitchfest for most of its 9 minutes, but turns into an orthodox ambient breaks number in its last two minutes.
