Killer intros

Recommended Posts

Another example of a killer intro surrounded by an equally killer/perfect song.

A couple more that I love, with a similar vibe.

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

More 80's Pop. Probably not a "killer" intro, but memorable for me nonetheless. I remember like it was yesterday approaching what was then pretty much the only place in Melbourne that sold records, yes records. The iconic "Brashs". This was playing and I picked up what was I think my first 12" single.

Double Duh!! I can't believe this wasn't the first one I posted. Arguably, the best ever.

Although "Odin's Court" is great in it's own right,  I guess it's still an intro, but what an intro!

I've never been able to do Christian Rock/Metal. I'm not anti Christian by any means, but for some reason it just irks me. There are of course some exceptions. Pretty much only 3. Impellitteri, Rob Rock and Stryper.

Like martinsane a few weeks ago, I was having a bit of a "Lizzy Borden" binge today. So many great intros.

Ah I'll check some of these out today. Had a bit of an overload of listening to music and took a much needed break but am so ready to get back into it

Flippin loads..showing my age with some of these...but straight to mind:

 

Aldo Nova - Fantasy 

Teaze - Boys Nite Out (The One Night Stands version)

Godz - Candy's Going Bad

 

Zon - Circus ...love it when the guitars and keyboards hit about the 38 sec mark ...hairs still go up on the back of my neck

 

Montrose - Space Station No. 5

 

 

 

Wireless - Journey of a Possible Hero

Not a track I  listen to very often for some reason, but it popped up today. Hugely commercially successful, helped in no small part with the Terminator 2 connection.  Even without the soundtrack tie in it's still a killer track and intro. On of the best intros IMO. Many memories associated with this one.

Brings me memories of that time I rode my bike down an LAZ aqueduct with some random kid.

Hold on, not sure that memory is 100% spot on :)

Ha! I might be doing you a disservice, but I think you're about my vintage, so you know what a big deal that song and movie was at the time. T2 was my first ever VHS bootleg, which I obtained before the official video release. As for your memory, or recall shall we say, I think you may be confusing that with the time you went on holiday to Mars.

Nah, that trip to Mars turned out to be a dream. Seemed so real at the time.
I recall thinking "how come I haven't seen more 3 titted women before...
That should have given it all away, but I guess I just went with it... ;)

Some nice riffage on this intro. These guys are always very good value.

Yeah, Junkyard Dog is definitely a killer intro. On a side note, from the first day I got "Pull", i've tried to figure out what the image is on the cover. It looks like some sort of microscopic shot. Any ideas?

    • But guys, he's one of today's most powerful and versatile lead vocalists. 
    • Also saw Once Upon A Time In Hollywood - agree with comments above, but a long and at times boring film. Star Wars Rise Of Skywalker - way less cringey lines in this one than recent releases. I really enjoyed it - wound up well, and probably the closest that we've had to the first 3 movies (IV, V & VI) as far as the way it was directed and produced. Shame all the others weren't made the same way.
    • I didn't like it at all.  the s/t is from 81 ish. classic line up
    • The Doors-In Concert Five Finger Death Punch-A Decade of Destruction In This Moment-Blood Waylon Jennings-Greatest Hits Moody Blues-Anthology Poison-Swallow This Live Todd Rundgren-Best Of  
    • Nice.  Blind preorder done! I'd guess we probably won't see this album until the summer at the earliest but good news.
    • Once Upon a time in Hollywood - nice drama about friendship, an unexpected ending though, but fun. Also yet another nod from Tarantino to Spaghetti Western and Italo crime movies Scary Stories to tell in the dark - a fun thriller/horror and coming of age movie. Not too scary, but very engaging. Reminded me of It, but not as long.
    • I was listening to 'Shout at the devil' the other day and was surprised as how cool it actually is. We all have the same tunes on our lists, but 'Knock 'em dead kid' and 'Ten seconds to love' are great too. And the 'Helter skelter' cover. Yeah, it was a pretty awesome disc for it's time, to be honest. Credit where it's due, n' stuff. 
    • Oh, how technical, regarding MSG. I thought those two were both McCauley/Schenker, aren't they?  Anyway, I always thought the same about 'TS' but I've actually rated it above 'Rocket Ride.' I know 'RR' had the best songs they've recorded, and I can only assume there were also a few clunkers too, whereas 'TS' was pretty solid throughout... even if the highs were not as high. 
    • ha ha that's cos there's only about 10 good to great songs IMHO before anyone jumps down my throat 
    • TS is weak imo.  that is McCauley schenker which I deem a different group
