We discuss two examples of oscillations apparently hidden in some experimental results for high-energy multiparticle production processes: (i) the log-periodic oscillatory pattern decorating the power-like Tsallis distributions of transverse momenta; (ii) the oscillations of the modified combinants obtained from the measured multiplicity distributions. Our calculations are confronted with p p data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). We show that in both cases, these phenomena can provide new insight into the dynamics of these processes.
