INT. RECORDING STUDIO – DAY

The PRODUCER sits at his console looking incredibly vexed.

PRODUCER: I can’t believe he didn’t show up.

DJ 3000: Maybe he’s sick.

PRODUCER: In the middle of the summer? Come on.

DJ 3000: Perhaps…

PRODUCER: You and I both know it’s because he’s too hungover to get his ass in gear.

DJ 3000: [a few lights blink in grudging agreement]

PRODUCER: It’s not that I’m unsympathetic, it’s pretty standard for a holiday in the middle of the week.  I just wish he would have called.  Or texted, even.

DJ 3000: It’s about time to start, do you want me to handle things?

PRODUCER: Nah, I got it. [punches button] Good morning and welcome to Request Line! Our special guest for today wasn’t able to make it, so we’ll get straight to the music.  Today’s topic is “intros and outtros”.  We’re talking about songs that feature solos either in the beginning or the end of the song, rather than in the middle as is traditional.  I’ll get us rolling with a couple of examples.

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

One of my all time favorite songs:

Low Commander of the Super Soldiers

Little late to the party, but here are a few choices:

DOUBLE SHOT

I know there’s a rhythm guitar under it lightly, but flute is difficult to come by if the band isn’t Jethro Tull…

Almost a self-contained double.

I scrolled back to check and didn’t see this. If I missed it, my apologies.
If I’m correct, however, and it hasn’t been posted yet…we should all be shot.
