* In the video game ''VideoGame/RhythmHeaven Fever'', the stage "Exhibition Match" consists of one phrase repeated twelve times, each with a TruckDriversGearChange, and this trope is the gameplay gimmick behind it: The PlayerCharacter is a batter, and you have to press A at the twelfth beat in the phrase to swing the bat and hit the ball. However, only the first and last phrases are complete: The other ones have instruments cutting out bit by bit, and earlier and earlier, forcing you to count out the beats in your head without complete musical accompaniment. By the tenth one, the music is gone entirely, making it a case of StopAndGo.

** The title track is a variant, as the only part where there's singing to full-blown instrumentation is in the chorus. Billie Joe said this format is inspired by Music/MidnightOil's "US Forces".

* Several Music/BlueOysterCult songs have this- "Career of Evil" and 'The Vigil are two of the more notable examples. "Career of Evil" has a LONG, jam-like one in the middle, while "The Vigil" has one just before its guitar solo that's more-or-less a repeat of the intro.

** "[[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.

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.
