Great Records With Truly Awful Intros?

Recommended Posts

We have had the 'awesome intros thread' but what about the 'awful intros thread'

i will start with this great tune by the Charades

https://www.soulclub.org/stream/The_Charade..._Believe_It.ram

If i am skipping thru a cd of new stuff this one would probably get overlooked as I sometimes only listen to the first 5 seconds :)

any more great songs with awful intros?

Shane

ADAMS JOHN - I LOVE YOU - SILVER BULL

poor intro ( which seems to last forever)

then they make a shortened version of the intro into the chorus

shame because the body of the record is brilliant :)

Might suprise you here Shane but the majority of Soulful House intro's get right on my tit's :yes:

They sound great if they're played out by a dj who knows how to play & mix them properly but when you're sat at home & you just want to listen to some music they just don't work.

Why on earth don't they squeeze in a radio edit somewhere.

I'm sure you know what i mean :):):D

One of my fave reocrds has a god damn awful start

Cynthia & Imaginations - Love Is Real

Its all echoey talking and then boom boom boom Loooove is Reeeal, Loooove is reeeal - and I'm a throbbing mess on the dance floor. :) Well actually I would have been on the dance floor with my hands on my hips waiting for the singing to begin.

isn't that your all-time favourite song Karen?????? :yes:

probably sacrilege, but the first bit of Challenge my Love annoys me...............!

Also Groovy Situation -Gene Chandler...................the use of nursery rhyme tunes in soul songs should be FORBIDDEN!!!!!!!

Be's That Way Sometimes - Bobby Wells.

Reminds me of an American nursery rhyme:

Mamma's Little Baby Loves Shortening Shortening

Rockin Co-You Live Only Once, about 40 seconds of hell, the rest of it is staggering though so more than makes up for the intro

A Place by The Precisions.

A real 'bubble gum' girly (no offence meant) intro and then a great song to follow. whistling.gif

Awful intro?

I'll vote for the Adventurers Easy Baby.

Sounds like an out of tune college marching band. Probably deliberate. Having said that, it sticks in your head, and I actually rather like it.

grrrr...clean out your ears...no taste...keep taking the tablets...etc etc laugh.gif

actually, i dispute that call anyway, mark.

pyramid starts with bass and piano

then into bongos and flute

then drums, guitar, brass and strings

then vocals, which are admittedly a bit chatty first up.

so it's not a spoken intro anyway :thumbsup:

Buddy Smith 'When you lose the one you love'. The intro used to remind me of Kermit the Frog channelling Barrington Levy. I've always loved the record anyway tho'.

Just for Dan

In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a miltary court for a crime they didnt commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government they servive as soldiers of fortune. if you have a problem, if no one else can help and if you can find them maybe you can hire the Soul bro's inc.......i i i im your guy and your my :)huh.gif

Love the intro to this, I take it he's saying 'When you lose the one you love' but said it so fast it sounds like 'whim ziggada wah' thumbsup.gif

The naff wordings on Moon Light Music And You, the last few words before the singing start she says "Oh !!!!! By The Way Did You Bring Your Guitar" :hypo::D Just makes me laugh.

Calvin Williams - It won't matter at all. Which gets double points as it also has a distinctly dodgy middle bit too but still rises above it to be brilliant.

The Miracles - Everybody's got to pay some dues.
