** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3rYhyIk8jM The Ultimate Fling]]," a hypercombative BreakupSong, shifts into a sparer, less agitated mode when, instead of provoking conflict, the singer honestly asks what the reason for the breakup is, in hopes of getting closure.
** "Revolution Roulette," a song fatalistically musing on FullCircleRevolution, has a lulling, meditative piano bit both between verses, and backing a quieter verse before the final, yelled chorus.

* "I Don't Love You" by Music/MyChemicalRomance is already subdued compared to the other songs on TheBlackParade, (in fact, this and "Cancer" might be considered the SubduedSection for the album as a whole) but right after the guitar solo all of the instrumentals drop out except for some quiet piano. Then everything explodes for the final lines.

* I keep coming across anime themes that do this for ''very'' short periods of time and still make it sound good. [[Manga/BoboboboBobobo "Wild Challenger"]] does it for one measure. [[LightNovel/{{Slayers}} "Give A Reason For Life"]], two beats.
* Both verses of {{Switchfoot}}'s "Meant to Live"
* "Time Bomb" by the Old 97's
* "Black Betty" both the Ram Jam and Spiderbait versions

Regardless of the specifics, this is a technique used to control song pace. It is very common, but that doesn't make it [[TropesAreNotBad any less effective.]]

* [[http://youtu.be/X7bHe--mp1g "Little Lion Man"]] by Mumford & Sons, the end of the song, follows a pretty loud, and faster, section where every instrument is playing, the band are stamping on the floor along with the percussion, suddenly, only vocals (and one last guitar strum). Fantastic.
* Video game example: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQ9YUyBkoYg "Raisin' Me Up"]] from ''{{VideoGame/Sonic Rush}}'' does this toward the end, with only the drums and vocals playing.
* Deep Purple "Strange Kind of Woman" in its live versions. There is a long, long section where Ian Gillan, Ritchie Blackmore and Ian Paice hold the fort. To a steady drum-beat, Blackmore and Gillan play a game where Blackmore sounds a riff, and Gillan sings it back to him note for note (and vice versa). Bass and Keyboards are nowhere to be seen for anything up to five minutes - maybe they're round the back having a sly smoke with the roadies.
