Music that later makes you go, "Hey yeah, I never noticed that!"

Pop-rock songs with unusual/unique constructions, structures, patterns, tempo changes, time signature changes, instrumental/vocal interplay, etc... Stuff you probably don't realize upon a casual first listen. And not necessarily something obvious like "multiple songs in one" (eg "Happiness Is a Warm Gun"), or songs with no chorus. [more inside]

Lost: A Favorite Song

I am unable to find a song that I once had on my iPod. It's a post-rock number. Although there are no lyrics (that I recall, anyway), there is an extended sample (I don't know from where) of a guy talking about a hot night when the power went out in his apartment complex. He talks about a woman who lit candles, and somehow in the end this leads to an apartment fire. The song feels like the soundtrack to a dream. My memory is not 100% on these details. It's been well over a year since I heard it. But the song was really good and I think about it now and then and I really miss having it. Anyone recognize it?
