Shiny Two Shiny - Waiting For Us (12" mix)

This was just reissued on Captured Tracks (thanks!), so I took the link down. Let's notice that the 12" mix places the snare drum on "1" and "3", with bass drums on "2" and "4", while the album version does not. In other words, the drumbeat is backwards. Off the top of my head, I can think of only one other song that does this, and there it happens only for a few bars (at the 2:12 mark).

Who can name some other songs that do this?

I've been going a bit Byrds crazy lately and just heard a beat reversal at the end of the Live at the Fillmore 1969 version of So You Want To Be A Rock and Roll Star. Freaked me out.
