Songs and movies that you know forwards and backwards.

Can you name any songs or movies which feature palindromic structures? In terms of music, I don't mean notes or lyrics, but the sections, eg, CVCBCVC. Movie patterns would be more loose, but one could be settings, eg, starts out in a house, then a car, then a plane, etc, ends in a car, then a house. Another pattern could be the entrance/exit of characters. [more inside]

Identify this song: Camarero

Camarero something something me muero de sed: What is the name of this Spanish language song about being at a bar on the beach and trying to get the waiter's attention for a drink? I last heard it in 1995 and expect it was made only a few years earlier. I thought the name was just Camarero, but I am not getting the right song by Google. The singer is male, the music generically Latin, and I am pretty sure you hear the drink being opened.

Anyone able to ID it, please?

Need help in identifying a song from the 80's (I think). It is about Hollywood's golden age, rather long, with some spoken word, that got a lot of airplay. Apologies for not remembering any of the lyrics, but they are just outside the reach of my memory.
