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)

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.

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

    • What the hell?
      Wonder which band member convinced his daughter to dance in the clip?
      Kinda creepy video.
      Weird choice for a bunch of 50 year olds...
    • In theory it is D2. It is the Revolve line up with the vocalists swapped. Makes you kinda think that the only reason that was the last D2 album and no follow up is due to Poley. I remember Ravel saying there would be no more D2 as the recording process of Revolve was such hard work, and seeing as all three other members are recording together here, it kinda starts to look like the issue is with the vocalist.
    • From sleazeroxx.com: Playhouse to release new album ‘The Rock N’ Roll Circus’ on November 10th Canadian hard rockers, Playhouse, will be releasing their first new album in more than 25 years with the release of The Rock N’ Roll Circus on November 10, 2018. The group will be having a CD launch party at the Piranha Bar in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on November 10, 2018. Playhouse‘s “Story” on their Facebook page states (with slight edits): “Formed during the height of the 80’s hard rock invasion, five high school friends wanted to play loud! The year was 1987 and they had one goal, to be the biggest rock band to ever come out of Canada. Playhouse released two E.P..’s; 1989’s Little Monster and the follow up; Tongue, Tied & Twisted in 1990. With a reputation for high energy shows and big chorus anthems. they quickly started filling every club they played. Now armed with a dedicated fan base solidly behind them, local promoters came calling. Soon, Playhouse found themselves opening for the likes of Extreme, Killer Dwarfs,Brighton Rock, Harem Scarem and many more. Then after 8 years together in the Rock n Roll Circus, the band called it quits…and now, almost 25 years later, THEY ARE BACK! In the fall of 2016, the band reunited and entered the studio for the first time together in over 20 years with veteran recording producer and lead guitarist for Slaves on Dope, Kevin Jardine to record three new songs. The first video “On Fire” was released in September 2016 with a follow up video released a few months later for “Stand Up And Fight.” In November 2017, Playhouse returned to the stage after 25 year with their sold out comeback show in Montreal, Canada.   Check out this earlier thread on these guys: https://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/topic/35094-playhouse/        
    • no......it.......doesn't 
    • Drinking my Beaujolais nouveau (Vive La France for your beautiful traditions!!!!!) while spinning them back to back on vinyl (Jaysus, sound is incredible on both vinyls!!!!) and still GOC wipes the floor with Tunguska(what a waste of a great title, btw!). 
    • wow. I'll leave that comment there. in terms of this album - it's a boring one paced generic album. Martennson needs to regather himself for the Eclipse album next year and produce something truly exciting
