Songs With a Dramatic Pause


Here’s a playlist of songs with a pause in them. It’s an entertaining technique used in a surprising number of songs. Some popular examples include:

  • The “hush, just stop” in Stronger by Britney Spears.
  • In Sober by Pink when she sings “I don’t wanna be the girl that has to fill the silence…”
  • When Alanis Morissette stops the track with “Why are you so petrified of silence? Here can you handle this?”
  • Beyoncé brags about the power of her digital drop with the lyrics World stop… Carry on” in Feeling Myself with Nicki Minaj.
  • Little Mix’s Sweet Melody stops the track during the lyric “But I stopped in my tracks… when I heard this melody”.
  • During The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sweet Transvestite makes catches our attention with “I see you shiver with antici… pation.”

Each of the songs contains a dramatic pause in the middle of the song so hush, just stop and listen to the themed playlist below!
