    Think - Aretha Franklin
  15. Walk on the Wild Side--Lou Reed.
    It's not so much the line as the song. That song could last forever and it would still be cool.

    anything from Paul Simon's Graceland...

    Especially "You Can Call Me Al". Seems repetitive at first, but when you really listen to it there are so many little variations.
