Default Best Introduction

Listening to John Fahey's 'Layla' and wondering, what other songs have the best introductions? Also thought Sunshine of Your Love and House of the Rising Sun.

I love the intro to Kasabians Club Foot

30 seconds of wafting synths & then suddenly the bass & drums kick in.

Orgasmic

There are several Rammstein songs that sound so gentle and cute before they get going - one with birds tweeting at the start, you think 'awww' for second before the song gets going (in Rammstein's typical way) and therefore as some starts go - they are great introductions.

(I'm sorry - crap at remembering song titles - especially German ones! I have a CD of their stuff that a gorgeous man put together for me and I have no idea what the songs are called - except for Engel - which is a particular fave of mine.)

House of the Rising Sun has a superb-u-licious intro. So do these songs:
Bauhaus- Bela Lugosi's Dead
Tool- Eulogy
The Postal Service- In Due Time
Refused- New Noise
Broken Social Scene- Shampoo Suicide

Newborn by Muse is a cool intro, you start with a soft, quiet piano before it all stops dead and suddenly your pelted with a raucious, heavy riff. also, the kinks "you really got me" starts with one of the best known riffs ever, and blind by koRn is a good intro too. whole lotta love and black dog are good intros too.

My favorite intro right now is the intro to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds by The Beatles.
