Favourite Catchy Intros
July 28, 2010 § Leave a comment
So I know I’ve been virtually silent on here for over a month. I started writing things, only to decide they weren’t interesting or all-encompassing enough. Well anyway, here’s something I started three weeks ago, when I suddenly realized how impossible it is to think of all my favourite intros, I mostly gave up, nevertheless, I picked out some decently obvious ones. I think it also speaks to the fact that I can listen to new music, but I always seem to revert backwards. I feel old rather suddenly.
Yesterday at work I had “Lovelife” by Lush (the song, not the album) stuck in my head, and if you ever hang out with me you might notice that I sometimes whistle “This Charming Man”. These are intros that get stuck in my head and never leave. So with that I’ve decided to try compiling some of my favourites. I’m not including the nice intros, but rather the ones that standout in my opinion as being catchy like mad. If this list feels like a trip through my music collection, find it as no coincidence. And if most of these songs were singles at some point, take that as no surprise either. These are old standbys and good friends.
Lovelife by Lush
This Charming Man by The Smiths
If You Tolerate This Your Children Will be Next by Manic Street Preachers
Motorcycle Emptiness by Manic Street Preachers
Stupid Girl by Garbage
Tomorrow by Ladytron
Beautiful Ones by Suede

Anyway, this is kind of a bizarre list I understand.
-Stay Gold, and Stay Tuned, because there might be some real news sometime.
