Songs that Speed Up

Hey all,

Took a look around to see if anyone had asked this question previously and couldn't seem to find anything (maybe I'm mistaken). In any case, I'm looking for some suggestions for songs that speed up. This doesn't have to be at the beginning of the track; it can be in the middle or towards the end. These can be vintage or modern, but preferably vintage (of course!).

Two off the top of my head are Dark Eyes by The Brothers Arntzen and After You've Gone by Lionel Hampton.

Thanks in advance, everyone! :D

Gordon Webster's Sister Kate is one that instantly comes to mind. Something like a 100bpm speedup in the last 45 seconds or so.

I think all the Boswell Sisters recordings have a slow-fast-slow pattern.

For gradual changes:
Bei Mir Bist Du Schön from the Swing Kids soundtrack is a pretty popular example.

For sudden changes:
Ain’t Misbehavin’ by The Beale Street Boys (Fats Waller)
