Best Song intros

Recommended Posts

" Smoke on the water" isn't great, merely very familiar.

And we all know what familiarity breeds, don't we?

Ahh, but one could argue that it became familiar because it was so good to start with, couldn't one? ::

Oooh, oooh, I know the answer to the question...

Alex, what is contempt? :jester:

I'm trying to think of ones that are a little bit different than the ones already mentioned here, but still distinctive

Bennie and the Jets - Elton John

Sympathy for the Devil & Start Me up- my obligatory Stones ones

The Stranger - Billy Joel

LA Woman - The Doors

La Grange - ZZ Top

Its the way it gradually builds up

Gilliann...I am going to guess by the thread that you are talking about Smoke On The Water. I don't remember it building up unless you are listening to the live version on the Made In Japan album (which I currently have in my car).

Smoke On The Water's intro is only familiar because it is the most recognized and probably the greatest guitar riff in rock history.

I suggest you listen to Deep Purple's Child In Time or Highway Star as those intros were so much better.

Yeah, I have the made In Japan album too,Its great! but the reason

I like Smoke on the water so much is the way it just starts out with the guitar and then gradually builds up with drum etc etc

Another Rolling Stones is

Far Away Eyes

" I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakerfield

Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station

And the preacher said, 'You know you always have the

Lord by your side.'

And I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran

Twenty red lights in his honor

Thank you Jesus, thank you lord..."

The Rolling Stones specialize in cool song intros, like Monkey Man

or Time Is On My Side.

Listen to this man; he KNOWS what he's talking about. The Stones are the best at it, and that's a big reason they're the World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band. "Can't You Hear Me Knocking", "One Hit (To The Body)", "Rocks Off", "Ventilator Blues", "Honky Tonk Woman", "Before They Make Me Run", and Gimme Shelter"...just to name a few with amazing guitar intros.
