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... ;)

    • it's an interesting year isn't it. can't remember a year when so many have agreed on a deadset 8 or even 9 for their top 10. 
    • Haha, it's not that bad is it? lol. But I agree, the verses are killer. Chorus could definitely have been better. Either way, sounds like something well worth checking out. 
    • Let's make no mistake of it - Nordic Union have never been, nor will they ever be worth the sweat on Pretty Maids' ballsack. That was my argument from day one with Nordic Union. Atkins and Pretty Maids have been writing killer tunes for probably longer than Martensson has been alive, so I never saw the point in the pairing. If they'd combined their talents evenly I guess it could have been magic, but to have a great songwriter having songs written for him always seemed a bit silly to me. 
    • The likely candidates for my top 10 are currently; First Signal Nitrate The Defiants The LRW Project Crazy Lixx Find Me Muna Pretty Maids Work Of Art Santa Cruz Degreed (not heard yet but it's a given) Of that list, maybe Find Me misses the cut, just?
    • Been listening to The End Machine which is pretty good. Probably won't make my list but a few gems on there.
    • Yeah, add Pretty Maids and Degreed to my list.
