Which song intros are too amazing to comprehend, even if the rest of the song underwhelms? Here are a few of my favourites:

D:Ream - UR The Best Thing



0.00 -> 0.48 = so gorgeous, such an underrated song overall too, a 90s dance classic.

Girls Aloud - Sexy! No, No, No



0.00 -> 0.37 = Cheryl's finest hour?

Delta Goodrem - Believe Again



0.00 -> 0.48 = The first time I heard this I thought it was a long lost Disney epic that I'd not heard before, glorious cinematic soundscape

Gina G - Ooh...Aah Just A Little Bit



0.00 -> 0.22 = Whisks me right back to the school discos of '96 in a piano synth frenzy, glorious. Eurovision just couldn't handle such a classic...

Both these were popchartfreak number ones, DReam is one of the best records of the 90's, but the intro's are just tasters for better to come for me.

Cheryl's finest hour was, of course, 3 Words (another number 1 for me) laugh.gif

intro's? well Mamma Mia, yes that's a great one, but Abba had just as good an outro (Chiquitita).

for me though, it's 44 seconds of this spine-tingling record..

Galvanize's intro never fails to take me back to the Olympics wub.gif First thing I thought of, even if the intro is really just the riff and main hook.

The ABBA pair of 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' and 'Voulez Vous' are both among the pinnacle of pop intros, as far as that goes.

And... I don't like the song for obvious reasons, but Rick Astley's 'Never Gonna Give You Up' has a much better intro than it has any right to have. Only reason I keep it on my iTunes.

Deep Purple - Child in Time. The first minute is really good, the other nine are torture.

Also that song by Supertramp with the piano intro.

I love the intro to Live To Tell, the first 50 seconds of this are stunning
