Favorite Intros/Outros

Recommended Posts

Videogames888

While some songs tend to start with a simple drum hit followed by music and simply fade out at the end, some artists actually create memorable opening riffs and very well structured outros that help make the song memorable. What is your personal favorite intros and/or outros to songs? Genre doesn't matter.

 

Favorite intro: Definitely the opening riff followed by the simple yet memorable piano playing in the intro of "Reelin in the Years" by Steely Dan.

 

Favorite outro: The soothing guitar playing layered with a memorable piano theme certainly makes "Layla" by Derek and the Dominos a great contendor for encompassing one of the most soothing outros ever made.

Favorite intro: The Avalanches' "Since I Left You". Perfectly sets up the tone for the rest of the song, even the album I'd argue; with a slight overdose of happiness.

 

Favorite outro: Tame Impala's "Expectation". Initially, it fades out like most boring tracks, but slowly picks up again with a heavily flanged guitar that fades in and kicks things into high gear in a near minute long instrumental. Never fails to impress me.

Mister Pink

This is beautiful. I first heard it in a music shop and the song is a straight-up rock and roll track but the outro turns in to this whimsical beautiful string and brass part with soft vocals and more more plucked strings.. Makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.

 

 

Iggy Pop and Josh Homme work really well together.

Slayer - "Angel of Death"

 

From the opening chord until the end of Araya's scream (starting with ridiculous falsetto before devolving into a primal roar), it just sets the tone for the song, the album, and the rest of the band's career.

Favorite intro:

 

Favorite outro:

 

, but a Queen song would just be too overkill with "best ___".

Definitely Katy Perry's 'Thinking Of You' extended version, the whole music video tells a story. The start is quite heart touching:

Hope bumping a nearly one year old thread isn't frowned upon but I like this topic too much to not take a chance on it if it is. :music:
