Well - just today I was working on one... have not done this much (both in development)
the 3:00 song - like you state, has a particular structure;
EDIT: TRACK REMOVED FOR REPAIRS - sorry.
the 2:00 instrumental song/cue -
https://soundcloud.com/funsongs-1/glidi ... op/s-6bqQb
as I understand it: has one main melodic theme, with variations/added things, with edit points - for dynamics...
minus lead instruments that can get in the way of use under dialogue assurance dépendance (that's my Peanut Gallery answer).

You'll notice I changed the title, hoping to convey "the mood" of the cue... for when a listing's verbiage would be asking for something like this.

Hope that helps. Actually, it would be of help to me, too - in this case - since my instrumental song/cue is gleaned from the song.
Cheers.
If you could illustrate all of this, that would be really great. Thanks in advance.
YIKES!! Man... that was a long time ago... and all of that is quite 'gone' and in the past.
Perhaps a current TAXI Member doing this kind of thing, with success (i.e. forwards & placements) could render a better and more-applicable answer.
I could probably still do the production work of turning a song's backing track into a workable cue: but, that could be as much, or more, work than just writing a new CUE
to a particular listing request. But that's not my thing.
I stick to writing, co-writing, collaborating, toplining SONGS.

Thanks for the follow up... it's 2022 now. :? 8-)

Here is a great example of a "Long Form Cue/Instrumental"
Listen closely to the layers added and subtracted, beautiful piece IMHO

I saw that, Alan - and wondered what it was.
