    Here is awesome opening riff from Ty Tabor, a man who has laid down dozens of memorable, and original, opening intro riffs.

    The tone on this one is perfect and is just so much fun to play

    Don't know how to post a video but when i was young I was blown away
    by the intro on "Reelin' in the Years". Still thrills me today and I'm much older.

    Thanks for posting nojazzhere. I worked back from p.7 to p.1 and noticed you had posted Reelin' in the Years.

    For me as an old Bruce Springsteen fan:

    Backstreets (live version)
    Land of Hope and Dreams (live version)
    Adam Raised a Cain...
    and of course
    Prove it all Night live the 1978 (live version).

    Talking Head's Burning Down The House got me the first time listening to it back in the 80s and still moves my feet immediately today.....

    Hey, it's not too difficult :0) I usually click the 'More Options' tab under the comments box (so I can drag picture files into there), but you don't have to..
    First off find a video clip in YouTube and click your cursor in the URL panel at the top (it will probably start with https://www.youtube etc...) to select it. Copy this! Then go back to your comment box, and paste the URL address in there - write a comment on a separate line too... If you are in the 'More Options' mode you will have a chance to preview your post first to see if it works - that's it! If you want to practice this move first try posting it in the "testing Please Ignore" Forum, where nobody will look at it!

    An additional 3. These are my guilty pleasures.

    This is a pretty good acoustic intro.

    Some really good entries here (some pretty 'meh' ones, too)! Not to repeat, I'll throw out a few. Remember, a lot of hit songs were hits mainly because of their intro "hooks." These are, in the nature of the OP, "intros that make me stop and listen to the whole song."

    You may have noticed that for me, all roads lead to Mermen. And this Friday I get to see them open for Dick Dale. Wish it was the other way around but I suppose he's more legendary.

    I like this intro because it has nothing to do with the rest of the tune. And what a great song title. Who knows what it means?

    Also off Cooder's Get Rhythm album. Another great intro.

    I wish "Whip It" was never recorded so everyone could experience the true DEVO. My God, they were incredible. "Gut Feeling" is still in my top 10 guitar riffs. Flakey... Thanks for posting that Fridays clip... pure gold.

    Agreed. We Spudboys know. My first encounter was their SNL appearance 1978. Then saw them at Northrup Aud. on the U of M campus. Unbelievable show !
