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

    • Wow... this one sounds really good. Especially that first song. I hear HEAT in that too.  Will listen to this ASAP.
    • Just wondering why you choose a couple songs from an album, and not all the good songs from an album. Also, I see you picking one album from a band that falls in that timeframe, and not all the albums. How comprehensive do you want this playlist?  Anyway, I see you have nothing from Transit, so you should add some from them. I know their albums are on the Spotifies. Also, I wasn't aware the Brunette demos were on there, so that's good to know. 
    • This is hilarious, and finally seeing one of these phony liberal pussys getting whats so coming to them. Blaming it on Trump supporters. LOL love it    
    • HA HA HA I FUCKING LOVE IT MAN!!  
    • These are a few more I just heard off my cassette tapes my step dad gave me, quit a bizarre mix of music, though all stands in the Pop/Hi-Tech/AOR/Rock field, but really is all over the road as far as being specific, I will remind you, these are all bands and songs I have never heard of, or heard ever before, so I'm sure there will be bands you have all heard, and I'm just a fucking idiot, and my musical knowledge is a 2 on a 10 scale, none of these are off my you tube channel, I haven't had the chance to record a lot of the tapes onto my computer yet, so I am going with the ones I could already find on You Tube, which there aren't many, the 1st one is off a soundtrack from a movie I think I saw in like 1st  grade called The Sluggers Wife, it was sang by Rebecca De Mornay, who was also in the movie(the hot bitch from Risky Business) it's an extremely plain and simple pop song, like most pop songs, but for whatever reason, I'm a fan of brainless pop songs, especially when sung by females, and from the 80's, so I'm just including it on the off chance any of you are fags like I am, and like cheesy pop songs, the rest are just bands I never heard of, and dug the shit I heard on these tapes, I'll try and get all the bands that weren't on YouTube uploaded and put on here, shit takes time.     Never even heard of this dude, but i didnt hear a bad song on the whole tape, i gotta look into this guy, I might be a huge fan.              
    • Oh WORD? Where the hell did this come from?! Great stuff!
    • Goodness me, the man is back with a bang!
