I quite like the acoustic intimacy of the start to this one before it transforms itself into quite a different beast altogether.

John Mellencamp Cougar - I need a lover (long studio version) - YouTube
Making it one of the few Seventies songs I like. Quality guitar solo to start. The song would be mediocre without.


The Cure-Fascination Street (With Lyrics) - YouTube
As someone said about another song, it sets the mood. Something disturbing is coming. And that has to be the longest intro of a pop single in the last 30 years.

Nice Guy: that was a great Genesis track. PG's solo albums usually replicate that feature, as I learned from your excellent music Journal!

And sorry to be unoriginal, but Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" has a very good intro. I defy you to find a youtube video of it, though! I believe they are very keen on keeping the copyright intact, and therefore you won't find much stuff actually by him, apart from live performances.

if you liked that, do check out the Selling England by the Pound album, it's my fave of theirs, although i'm a huge fan of the Gabriel years in general

With some embarrassment, I'll admit that despite the fact Genesis are one of my favorite bands, I know relatively little about them! I know far more about PG, who I love. I'll add it to me Christmas list as soon as I get a moment.

I second that. Selling England is a brilliant album that every prog fan should have.

Welcome to the Jungle always grabs me by the balls.
I need to relisten to a few of those old hits: some of them really get you.

Another intro pretty grabbing is another od Bob Dylan's: "Thunder on the Mountain". From the first few notes, the effect is quite electrifying and as an album opener, the first sound of Bob's voice is gruff and immediately endearing.

As soon as I hear this I want to spark one up:

As soon as I hear this I want to smash someone up:

As soon as I hear this I want to be a boxer entering a match:

As soon as I hear this I think of snatch:

Do samples and whatnot count? Because 4th Chamber hooks me with that eerie, twisted dialogue between a grown ass samurai and a little ass baby over the baby's life, along with the little twisty noise RZA puts in at the end. Then there's, of course, the Wildflower intro on Ironman, or Iron Maiden (still ghostface), both for their rawness (the former in sexuality/infidelity and the latter in attitude).

Speaking of Iron Maiden, the intro to Prowler is instantaneously hooking, like a chopping siren call. Then, of course, there's the eponymous Black Sabbath storm and church bells that eventually transform into those booming guitar chords. The sounds are just so alluring.
