Dear all,

I really like Jimmy Frazier "Of Hopes and Dream and Tombstones". Unfortunately the opening is not too long. But for a few seconds one might think, that he is not at an Allnighter but rather in a Sergio Leone Italo Western!

And btw: if someone is selling a copy: please drop a PM

Take care

Better Use Your Head - any version.

Our Love Will Grow - Showmen

On Broadway - George Benson

Wear It On Our Face - The Dells

All well known I know, but all get you into it right from the start.

As soon as I hear the crashing intro to this it just grabs me and makes me want to get up and dance and I'm tempted to do a few acrobatics which I'm way past now :wave:

For me the start to the 4 Perfections " I`m not strong enough " is an instant hit!!!!

Indeed, very nice, just tried to do some spins in front of my computer. It's much easier than in a club as I am wearing only socks :wave:

But what is it? (Hope it's not one of these superknown gems, that just I have managed to not know :lol: )

Johnny Sayles "I Can't Get Enough", Patrice Holloway "Love And Desire", the Valentinos' "Sweeter Than the Day Before" Gladys Knight and the Pips "Everybody Needs Love" will do for today!

Would I be spoiling the whole of this good thread if I admit that I always liked the intro to "Black Power"??

One of my favourites too BOTH SIDES

I can still remember hearing the B side for the first time, thinking that it was just the instrumental to the A Side,

then the Magic moment when the Vocal comes in again .... WOW

One of the classic openings for me, and one of the longest ................................. HEATWAVE

I love tracks with really effective and convincing introductions - those which set a mood, build tension or make you feel as if you're about to set off an an amazing journey...

Johnny Sayles - I Can't Get Enough (feels like an engine revving up before thrusting into motion)

Eddie Parker - Love You Baby (...just shut up, woman, and LISTEN to me!)

Bob Relf - Blowing My Mind To Pieces (swirling and rising up to new heights of ecstacy)

Four Tops - Reach Out, I'll Be There (a racing heart, beating fast and absolutely determined)

The O'Jays - Looky Looky (dramatic and insistant, demanding attention)

Dean Parrish - I'm On My Way (a journey uptown as in "heading for the life of the city...")

Jackie Lee - Do The Temptation Walk (...hold on tight, 'cause we're going UP!)

William Bell - Happy (a joyful and uplifting intro, you just know the guy is on top of the world)

Frankie & The Clasicals - What Shall I Do (setting a perfect mood of frustration)

Edward Hamilton - Baby Don't You Weep (high drama, "I'm on my way...I'm coming home")

Timmy Willis - Such Misery (dark and haunting, I'm feeling suicidal...)

Eloise Laws - Love Factory (moody and intense, almost angry, definately a HURT woman)

The Intrigues - In A Moment (a dramatic and stirring suspense; something's gonna happen...)

The Fi-Dels - Try A Little Harder (very uplifting but also dark and moody)

Tami Lynn - I'm Gonna Run Away From You (...get out of my way, boy - I've had enough!)

Bernard Williams - Focused On You (a throbbing intro for confidence and determination)

San Remo Strings - Festival Time (wake up, something really GOOD is about to happen)

Edwin Starr - I Have Faith In You (more throbbing determination)

The Ambers - Potion Of Love (a bubbling, magical feeling)

Sidney Joe Qualls - Run To Me (more moody determination)

Southside Movement - Do It To Me (get dressed, we're going OUT...)

Loleatta Holloway - Mother Of Shame (she's definately on a mission)

I think that's enough intros for now.

I didn't see this one...but don't you all think that The Tempos - Countdown, here I come - Canterbury has a wonderful intro. It starts at 100 mph.... Just like Johnny Wyatt - This thing called love.

However, best intro of all time has to be Ruby - Deceived/Feminine Ingenuity. Both sides are just unbelievable intros that really set both tunes on the right track.
