I'm curious about pairs of rock songs by one group that often sound quite different and distinct from each other, but are always played together on the radio and paired together on "best of" compilations. For instance:
Beatles: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band / With a Little Help from my Friends
Journey: Feeling That Way / Anytime
The Cars[/B]: Bye Bye Love / Moving in Stereo
Queen: We Will Rock You / We Are The Champions
INXS: Need You Tonight / Mediate (the video for Meditate was always shown by itself when it appeared on MTV in the 1980s)
Pink Floyd: a ton of songs from various albums, especially from The Wall
There's also the songs that people think are one song, but are actually two.
Elton John: Funeral for a Friend / Love Lies Bleeding
Jackson Browne: Load Out / Stay
Can soneone explain the paired song phenomenon? Is there a name for it? It seemed to be popular among bands in the 1970s and 1980s, but I haven't encountered it with any music released in the past 15 years or so.
