    Although short songs, many of old Billie Holiday standards have long intros, in some of them she literally sings just a few lines, half way through, almost like a guest singer.

    Never Be the same, Riffin the scotch...(this swings like crazy!)

    If you don't count the "ahh ahh"s and the "doo doo doo doo"s, the intro of this is a minute and a half, half the length of the whole track

    hash tag sickness. now light

    Only about a minute out of a 5 minute track, but pretty damn perfect. You can feel the anticipitation, the build up, the increasing intensity working towards a climax
