    With the imminent release of Dark Side Of The Moon,I was wondering what is your favourite intro of all time.
    For me it has to be Time from above album

    Van Halen - '1984' (stunning use of keyboards on a rock album of that time - sounds immense even today)

    Kiss - 'Alive II' - the spoken word intro and sounds of the pyro going off still sends shivers down my spine.

    Intro to a song, or intro to an album?

    Song - "Love Spreads" by the Stone Roses. Quality bit of John Squire / Les Paul action.

    Album - quite like the way the Stereophonics "Just Enough Education" album starts with the gospel singers humming quietly, so you turn it up to hear them, and then in come the guitars on "Las Vegas 2times" leading to broken windows for miles around...

    Call Of Ktulu - Metallica

    It starts off with acoustic guitar accompanied by 'wind' noises then erupts into what can only be described as Heavy Metal thunder:smashin:

    letitbleed I have often thought for a the sheer hell of it when it has gone dark, opening the window taking a speaker over to it turning the volume up and playing the opening to Time then shutting the curtains before anyone knows it was me.:devil:

    Top two have to be

    Summer of 69 - Bryan Adams

    Sweet Child O' Mine - G'n'R

    Loads of others but those two always have me reaching for the volume button

    The soaring organ intro that The Meters used for their cover of STORMY knocks me back every time I hear it.

    best album intros and interludes (rather than an actual part of a song) are on White Zombie's El Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol 1.

    creepy horror film dialogue snippets from David Warner (great voice), explosions and bats. sets a great mood for the rest of the album.

    How did I miss that one? That was one of the best funky tracks ever, was one of the records that would get me up and down on the dance floor. The album that it was from (Talking Book) was probably Steve’s best also. I think around that time Motown were bringing some excellent stuff out, Marvin Gaye’s album What’s Going On, Temptations album All Directions etc and not forgetting Jr Walkers single Walk In The Night.

    Just a few:

    'Jaworski' by Will Haven
    'Waffle' by Sevendust
    'Mandan' by Raging Speedhorn
    'Freedom' by Rage Against The Machine
    '1845' by One Minute Silence... it's just a 25 second warning of what's coming, till that kick drum, and the loudest song in existence knocks itself up 5 gears at once.
    'Hyper Music' and 'Plug In Baby' both by Muse
    'Disposable Heroes' by Metallica
    'No Cigar' By Millencolin
    'Feuer Frei' by Rammstein (Also the intro to xXx)
    Agree with Gambit about 'Clean' by Incubus
    'Brain Stew' by Greenday is a whole song intro for 'Jaded'. These songs should be played together to awesome effect. Pre-crap class.
    'Shiver' by Coldplay
    'Machine Head' by Bush
    'My Last Serenade' by Killswitch Engage (It's another crappy boyband pop son.... AAAAAAGHHHH NO IT F'INg AIN'T!)
    Plus almost every Slayer song in existence.

    But my fave, and the fave of many everywhere:
    'Davidian' by Machine Head, an intro to a song, a debut album and a career. You have to hear it . ROAR!

    Pointon quotes - One Minute Silence - 1845
    I forgot about One Minute Silence - they seem to specialise in intros on the "Buy Now Saved Later" album

    Just thought of another one
    The Prodigy - Climbatize
    This does it for me also - especially when the bass line thunders in at just over 1 and a half minutes into the track
