Here's an example I just came across...
I was just out and about and Steely Dan's "Babylon Sisters" came on.
I really did not like this track when it first came out on Gaucho. While it's still not a favorite, I really grew to appreciate the technical approach of this song, it's arrangement.
Left me wondering how many other tunes I've heard in my life that followed a similar path.
Also struck me as an experience that has some thread potential.
