Best Intro Ever

Post by GirondinGeordie » Sat Feb 18, 2012 2:24 pm

Many songs are recognized for their classic riffs or their magnificent solo's but I recently thought that there are also many famous intro's out there. Which ones immediately draw you into the move of the song?

For me one of the greatest "build ups" for an intro which is broken down by such a simple riff by Dire Straits. Gets you going all the time:

This on the other hand is a much more relaxed hypnotic start to the song from The Doors:

Another more relaxed intro from the Stones:

Then I'm going to go with the cliche ;) :
