Interesting to see how many suggestions relate to Heavy Metal/Rock bands-it's something they tend to do well; grab attention from the very start. But also lots of 'older' bands and artists that have become classic or legendary in their own right...
I wonder how many more recent, contemporary tracks with memorable intro's will make future lists...?
My suggestions that spring to mind are at the moment...
Gotye - Somebody that I used to know
Passenger - Let Her Go...
PC/iTunes - 1TB HD - Aureon dual USB/Optical output - CA 650R - Denon DVD1920 - Wii - SkyHD+/Iomega Director plus multimedia - MS10i fronts - Mission dipolar rears - Lecron hi level fronts & centre sats - Thatcable & Monster HDMI - TCI Coral optical - QED speaker cable - Tacima CS929 mains conditioner
Does nobody care that it is intros and not intro's????
+1 for Gimme Shelter, Sledgehammer, Papa Was a Rolling Stone.
What about Riders On The Storm - The Doors and The Chain - Fleetwood Mac?
The apostrophe is used to indicate a contraction - so I beg to differ!
Old Friends by Simon & Garfunkel
Carrillon by Sky
Singles Bar by Tracey Thorn
I Don't Want A Lover - Texas
Alive And Kicking
The Sun Always Shines On TV
The Living Daylights
The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again.
Some rather good ones there! And thanks - someone came in for a demo once and there was a particular track he was playing (he was a 205/2 owner, now Blade ), I asked him what it was before he left, and he said Younger Brother. Every time I remember and search for them, I can never remember the name! I usually search Older Brother, or Other Brother (which I thought it was), and coincidentally, I went to search for them earlier today! You have now reminded me - thanks very much!

That's another favourite intro of mine. I used to use it as a ring tone for a few years (now changed to Tubular Bells).
