    Anyone agree with me that Baba O'Riley is a bit.....boring? If you're going for a long intro, being purely repetitive does not an epic intro make

    I'd go for something by Yes
    Oh, Yes indeed. For me though, Pink Floyd are the masters of the intro - prime cases being Shine On You Crazy Diamond and Echoes:






    Either that, or the live intro to Supper's Ready by Genesis:

    Yep, good call on Pink Floyd. I suppose the main issue with bands like these are distinguishing what counts as an intro, or what is really just the song. I didn't include Heart of the Sunrise (Yes) because I thought it was a bit long to be an intro specfically :lol: though if we are counting SOYCD, I'll include HotS



    Actually, though I do love SOYCD but I think the opening instrumental is just a nice intermin until the good stuff starts, ie, the singing. So I'm still going for Yes

    Funnily enough, another of my favourite intros- in comparison to the 5 minute jobs by Pink Floyd or Yes- is Cecilia by Simon and Garfunkel; it lasts all of 10 seconds

    Entrancing; when I first heard it, I played just the part before the vocals start over and over again. Was a few days before I listened to the whole song, and it changed my life when I did.

    In which case, I see your Heart of the Sunrise and Cecilia, and raise you one America (the intro is immense and it kinda ties in the points nicely) and one Scarborough Fair (like Cecilia, it's only 10 seconds long, but it invites you to sit down and listen).





    And I'm not sure I could overlook a bit of funky piano in there:

    Scarborough Fair is one of my favourite songs :love: I agree about the intro. In a similar vein, I've always loved REM's Half A World Away:



    Good pick with America, though I prefer the original song- and the gentle 'mms' in the intro- overall (can't beat a bit of S&G in any circumstance, for me )

    Hadn't heard the Jethro Tull one- very nice! Thanks

    I suppose I need to raise you with something else so I'll go with another Yes, but from a bit later. This is actually the end of Gates of Delirium, but I'm sure it was made into a single on its own so I'll count it. Very serene:



    In fact, Gates of Delirium itself has a great intro

    The Smiths - This Charming Man
    Wanna Be Starting Something - Michael Jackson

    Also Do It Twice - Bob Marley. That intro has been my ring tone for years. I really don't like the song itself though.

    Muse- Bliss
    I've got to agree with this. There is an unholy amount of awesomeness in the intro to Bliss. That said I'm a huge muse fan so obviously my favourite intro had to be a muse song.
