Top 25 Best Song Intros

This is my first post on the blog, so I decided to post a top 25 list I put together awhile ago. I hope I'm doing this right...

What are the best song intros of all time? I weighed both my personal feelings (what I like), and public opinion (what I know is well known or popular) to make this list. My only real criteria for entry on the list was that the intro be instrumental (no vocals), and not be the same melody as the chorus or the verses. That is why intros to songs like 100 Years by Five For Fighting, and Together Forever by Rick Astley were not included. Some on the list might be similar, though (such as Take My Breath Away). This was a very hard list to make, because there's so much good stuff out there. The list will probably be updated periodically, as there is a lot of music to listen to and decide on. I have embedded the official videos (from the artist's official Youtube channels) wherever possible. Feel free to leave comments regarding what you think of the list or your own personal choices.

    Hi Goldleader23. Welcome to the Blog. I love your first post, as I'm a professional request piano bar performer. I'm very impressed not only with your picks, but in the very detailed way you showed them along with exhaustiveinks to all the songs. Well done.

    If you're looking for more songs with great intros, here's some for you:

    Baba O' Reily by The Who
    Jump by Van Halen
    Prelude to an angry young man by Billy Joel
    Funeral for a friend/Love lies bleeding by Elton John
    You're fooling yourself by STYX
    Life in the fast lane by The Eagles
    Money by Pink Floyd
    Louie Louie by the Kingsmen
    Johnny B Goode by Chuck Berry
    Light my fire by The Doors
    Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix
    September by Earth, Wind and Fire
    Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones

    I look forward to your next post. Peace.

    Thanks for the welcome and comment! I'm already considering adding a few of those songs to the list, but I'll have to check out the others. :)

    Good list :) and welcome to the blogs :)
    I think you should listen to the song "Snakes in Eden" by the band "Pretty Maids". It's one of the best intros I've ever heard and it really gets you into the mood for this awesome song :)

    Thanks! I just listened to the song, and while it might be a tiny bit too heavy for my taste (just barely), it does have an interesting intro. :)
