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

Ah, you're the 2nd person who's mentioned the Ozzy Osbourne one to me so I will give that a listen first :banger:

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

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.
