Best Intros to songs from other bands

Post by theraven1979 » 20 Jul 2005, 11:19

Just to get the ball rolling


Angel Eyes - Roxy Music
OK it`s a tad disco but I love the way the instruments cue each other up. Everything sounds very sharp and crisp.

To Repel Ghosts - Manic Street Preachers
Stuttering guitar over a vast building intro.

The Damned-New Rose.
'Is she really going out with him?' Then the drums and guitar kick in!

Superb!
