TWQ: Musical Intros

The Weekend Question (TWQ) this week asks about the musical starts to great records:

Can you name at least five (can be as many as you like) songs with instantly recognisable musical introductions before the lyrics even start?

These are my answers:

1: 'A Whiter Shade Of Pale' by Procul Harum

2: 'Whiskey In The Jar' by Thin Lizzy

3: 'Crocodile Rock' by Elton John

4: 'All You Need Is Love' by The Beatles

5: 'Pinball Wizard' by The Who

Now it's over to you...

my songs would be:
1. imagine by john lennon
2. sesame street theme song
3. muppet theme song
4. harry potter soundtrack
5. star wars opening

sorry if most of them are juvenile. am actually pretty darn good at identifying songs within the first few notes but strangely, they all escape me at the moment. :)

Oh, I am not very good at that. But I can relate to your own list.
Maybe I can add
Every breath you take - Police
Holiday- Green Day
Maggie Mae -Rod Stewart
Cocaine - Eric Clapton
Money for nothing - Dire Straits

well, I did come up with some tunes! now I am off to hear some of them!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I have to think about those songs...I know there are probably a lot, but cannot think of a one at this moment!

Here from Michele this A.M.

Ciera said...

Jen and I were just talking about this last night. I can figure out a song pretty quickly, which is one of the reason's why I was so good at doing the Overhead's at church, becuase if the leader left his song list, I could follow him easier than some of the others. I'm still good in the country genre at naming songs too. A few other favorites as well. Of course, do you think I can come up with any of the titles right now?!

I enjoyed the answers on your meme. :)

Jen said...

Don't forget that you lived on that planet and had a family and learned to play the flute, or does it not count if it didn't really happen?

Chris W. said...

Ok, I just had to get in on this one! I'm a huge music buff, after all. For fun, I'll do ten songs and I'll limit it to what's in my collection as what I think others will recognize:

"You Might Think" by The Cars
"One Thing Leads to Another" by The Fixx
"Only Time Will Tell" by Asia
"Cars" by Gary Numan (the Fear Factory version's good, too!)
"Wheel in the Sky" by Journey
"The Look" by Roxette
"I Can't Drive 55" by Sammy Hagar
"Bring me To Life" by Evanescence
"No More Mr. Nice Guy" by Alice Cooper
"Photograph" by Def Leppard

Honorable mention: just about anything from the first two Boston albums.

Nettie said...

Gotta love memes. That first one is pretty thought-provoking, though.

Raehan said...

Hi. I'm actually suffering from some kind of stomach flu, so I'm not thinking very well.

4 jobs I've held:

1. chamber maid
2. foot messenger
3. security dispatcher
4. busser at Godfather's pizza (my first real job at 15)

These were all jobs of my youth. There are more....

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

wow, everyone has put such good ones on already, i'm usually pretty good at recognizing after a few notes.
i love nicole too, i think the work she has done since she split from tom has been her best. the others is one of my favorite scary movies, done through filming, not special effects, it's brillant.
i guess we share a birthday week!!!

Trinity13 said...

I love Smallville Capt! I can't wait till the new episode this Thursday!!!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Great songs so far. I know 'Spirit In The Sky' is one I should have added, as well as 'Strawberry Fields Forever'.

Better Safe, 'The Others' is a great movie that I can always watch. 'The Forgotten' is not unlike it, and I love that, too.

Trin, Smnallville starts it's 5th series on Monday, with Smallville devastated, a mysterious object landing and Clark somewhere else (Krypton?). What an ending! Can't wait for the new series to start!

Juggling Mother said...

I'm awful at intro's (and any other part of a song actually). I NEVER get them on "Never Mind the Buzzcocks" & I watch it all the time:-( I guess any inro is very recognisable if you har it often enough:-)

Here from Micheles today.

Karen said...

Here are my 5 songs:
2. Smoke on the Water
3. Sweet Home Alabama
4. Whiter Shade of Pale
5. Stairway to Heaven

Except for the first one, I'm kind of a rocker gal!

Michele sent me!

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

My age will show (especially today)

1. Jailhouse Rock by Elvis

2. In a Godda Davida

3. Give Peace A Chance by Lennon

4. Night and Day

5. Brown Sugar

the frog princess said...

I'm very good at intros, but very bad at telling you what song they are -- I'll just sing along until you tell me to shut it. :)

I did the four questions MeMe, but it had completely different questions on it!

Michele sent me!

kimbofo said...

Wow. Four songs... this is a good challenge.

How about:

1. Where the Streets Have No Name by U2.
2. New Year's Day by U2.
3. Better Be Home Soon by Crowded House.
4. Who Are You (or whatever it's called) by the Who.

PS> michele sent me

Beanhead said...

the only one that comes to mind is the Titanic song.

Here from Michele's

Courtney said...

Instantly recognizable intros... this is of course subjective, depending on the type of music you listen to, but I'll play along.

London Calling - the Clash
Anarchy in the UK - Sex Pistols
Imagine - John Lennon
Jump Around - House of Pain
Alison - Elvis Costello

I must also add that I did not read any previous comments, so if there are repeats, well, I guess that proves your point, Captain.
Michele sent me.

Nic said...

1. Money - Pink Floyd
2. Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkle
3. Theme from Rocky
