Synchronicity II - The Police
Not the opening track the other one later on in the album. I like the way the guitar cues up Stings vocal to come in. It's typical Police but it's clever how it's done.

Overkill - Motorhead
Yes, that drum intro is pure early school speed metal bliss!

On the subject of drum intro's I also like:

Milk and Alcohol by Dr.Feelgood.
