Killer intros

Recommended Posts

Anyone get any favourite tracks with killer intros they'd like to share? 

I've got a few that I really love, they kind of build excitement for the song and even though the songs themselves aren't necessarily among my top listens I'll play them just because I love the openings so much. I was working on a blog this morning and that's what got me thinking about it.

My top ones are:

  1. Duran Duran - Rio
  2. Dire Straits - Money for Nothing
  3. Raw Silk - Journey of No Return
  4. Chris Rea - Road to Hell (the extended version)

First ones that come to mind for me would be

  1. AC/DC - Thunderstruck
  2. Guns N' Roses - Welcome to the Jungle
  3. Def Leppard - Rock of Ages
  4. Ozzy Osbourne - Crazy Train

I've always liked the intro / beginning of W.A.S.P.'s ''The Idol'' , not the dialogue at the beginning but the part with ''Will I be alone this morning, will I need my friends'' and the way it rolls into the part of the song with the acoustic guitar riff and the ''If I could only stand'' part. Unfortunately that whole part is cut off in this video

Still I'm not seeing Icon in your posts and I'm getting worried... ;)

 

 

Mr. Big - Had Enough (the original version, not the disgrace that's the remastered version, and, sadly, the only one uploaded in spotify)

You're spot on about the remastered version of "Had Enough" mate. Absolute travesty.

Hate it when they pointlessly remaster a song and ruin it

I love the keyboards intros from the 80's.

These ones for an example. Massive songs.

I always loved "Obsession". Pure 80's.

Although they're not normal HH fare, I've always had an appreciation for "The Cure". I don't think you could call them a Rock band, having said that, this track does rock IMO.

Some of those remind me of Catch Me I'm Falling (Extended) - Real Life

    • Their set from Madison Square Garden https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-_3c1ga5S8  For some reason not automatically embedding videos anymore, can someone help?
    • Artwork for 'New Eyes'.  
    • Not an easy question to answer. Invision offers 2 licensing models: 1. You buy the license one time (perpetual license) for a couple hundred dollars and you host it on your own server. Hosting costs, support, and bandwidth are yours. Tech support from Invision is limited to IPB software issues. You have the source code so you can customize anything you want, including major functionalities. 2. Monthly subscription, they host the forum and provide all support. Monthly costs are based on tiers of simultaneous users. Source code is not accessible, so you can only customize via skins, plugin modules, and board admin config. I use option #2 and it runs me $40 per month just for the board. If it is a major newspaper, I find it highly unlikely that it is a cost-cutting move unless their traffic is so high that the board is having performance issues and the support and bandwidth costs are mounting. Given the timing, I would speculate that GDPR and its potential liabilities could have something to do with it. Or it could just be yet another step in the Facebooking of the Interwebz. *spit*
    • Great cover artwork  and finally a huge logo! 
    • I moderate a major newspaper's forums, which uses the same software as here. On July 2nd, they are permanently closing down this part of the website. I was just wondering how much does this type of forum cost per month. I'm just wondering if this was basically just a cost cutting move. Any info would be a great help.
    • Really hoping they can release a follow up to their promising debut very soon, ideally this year
    • If you do start to warm up to Joss' vocals I recommend checking out The Great Escape by Zinatra, which included a few tracks written by Paul Laine.  Zinatra sounded similar to mid-80's Treat mixed with a touch of Queen.   It is available on Spotify under the album title Rockumentary Part 2.
