Nothing gives a sense of building to a glorious inevitable climax like hanging out on the V chord (or better yet the V7) for a few bars till you resolve to the root (I).

Back In The USSR - intro
Day Tripper - solo
Here Comes The Sun - bridge
Twist And Shout - bridge


Do You Love Me? - The Contours
Suffragette City - David Bowie
