    Back in the days of FM radio, there were some songs by certain artists that the DJs would always play back-to-back, usually because there was no space between them on the LP. As a result, if I hear one song without the other, it feels like there's something missing. :eyebrow: Here are some examples:
    "Feeling That Way"/"Anytime" - Journey
    "Heartbreaker"/"Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman)" - Led Zeppelin
    "Waitin' For the Bus"/"Jesus Just Left Chicago" - ZZ Top

    What are some others?

    We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions - Queen

    If you're lucky, every now and then you'll get the whole Another Brick In The Wall suite from Pink Floyd's The Wall. They also do Brain Damage/Eclipse together often.

    Yep

    Brain Damage / Eclipse are (dare I say) never played by themselves. They're always played together.

    There's one I can't believe I missed. Good one!

    I almost listed Boston's "Foreplay/Long Time", but since those are listed on the album as one track, the band obviously considered them as one.

    I would have said "Bye Bye Love" into "Moving With Stereo" - MWS sounds like chapter 2 to me, not chapter 1. But I agree.


    A few from the grunge era, and not necessarily ever played on the radio:

    • Them Bones/Dam That River - Alice In Chains
    • Cherub Rock/Quiet - Smashing Pumpkins
    • Breakerfall/God's Dice - Pearl Jam

    The Beatles: Kansas City/Hey Hey Hey
    Elton John: Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding
    Chicago: Hard to Say I'm Sorry/Get Away

    and not that you'd ever hear this one on the radio, but:

    Simon and Garfunkel: Bookends Theme/Save the Life of My Child

    Thin Lizzy - The Cowboy Song / The Boys Are Back In Town.

    Not back to back on the studio album (Jailbreak) but the live link has joined them permanently in my mind :bassist:
