Song Puzzles: One Song In Several Parts On Different Albums


Some stories, themes or concepts are presented not just in one single song but are split in separate tracks that (often) share the same title but are distinguished by a number of the corresponding part of the song series.

However, sometimes these parts are not found together on one album, but are included on different releases of the artist.
They can be found on two (or more) conceptually linked albums (where they function as part of an ensemble together with the other songs), or they can be included on independent releases (where only they alone continue their story).

Therefore, the main purpose of this list is to give an overview that enables the reader to find the missing song pieces - or even to inform that these pieces exist at all.

Please feel free to find and suggest more examples of these "song jigsaw puzzles": one song(concept) in separate parts on different albums.

Cool list! I suggest you add Black Sabbath Planet caravan (Paranoid) and Zeitgeist (13) even though they are not "officially" connected in any way.


Thank you very much for your nice comment, RazMan. I will definitely have a look. Maybe this is another example of a sequel or it is an example for self-citation (but maybe many of the sequels are self-citation in general, they just made it "official"). Do you know if the band said anything about the relation of the two songs?

Thank you again, RazMan. This is a very interesting case. I also think that there are several connections between these songs (Planet Caravan and Zeitgeist) when you hear them. It would be good to know more about the link between these songs. Most information that is easy to gather from the net is fan-based. These two songs are often mentioned together, sometimes even in addition with Solitude [Master Of Reality].

There are other more or less "unofficial" song series (at least from the information that is easily accessible) on different albums: The "Charlotte Saga" by Iron Maiden (Charlotte The Harlot [Iron Maiden] + 22 Acacia Avenue [The Number Of The Beast] + Hooks In You [No Prayer For The Dying] + From Here To Eternity [Fear Of The Dark]) or the "Clarissa Story" by Cradle Of Filth (Her Ghost In The Fog [Midian] + Swansong For A Raven [Nymphetamine]).
Maybe I will add them, if I know more about them.

Progressive metal band Ice Age has two songs that stretch on all three albums.

First there's Perpetual Child, the opening song on their debut album, which got a second part on their new 2023 album: Perpetual Child, Part II: Forever

Second, To Say Goodbye stretches on all their three albums: Part I and Part II on their debut, Part III on their second album and Part IV and Part V on the last one.

Thank you again, valcrist. I have added the Caleb Saga (with a note for the Xandria cover) and the Legacy of Blood Saga. These are fantastic new examples. I keep the two Black Sabbath song versions in mind, maybe for some kind of cross-talk/cross-reference of songs from different bands.
