The longest ever drum intro... :-)

Killer compilation! Cut out an entire page or two of a thread asking about songs with drum intros, lol.

That is fantastic! I'd love to take that and make it into a quiz on the Sporcle website:

www.sporcle.com

I'd need a list of all the artists and songs in the montage - I recognize about half of them.

That would be cool to make this into a quiz. i think I only missed 6 or seven of them.

Make that more like 10

Wow, what an amount of work!

What about Love Is All Around by Wet Wet Wet :eek:)?

You know what would be cool? If there weren't any gaps between the intros,
but some kind of musical transitions from one intro to the next! :)

Has Henri got a spare month or so? ;)

Henri - huge effort! Certainly got me thinking. I'd be surprised if I got half of those right. Nice sprinkling of Simon/Jeff in there (highly commended)

Very nice compilation! Very cool that I thought I heard the intro to "I'm just a singer in a R&R band."

P.S. A couple of more came to mind that could be added: Tank by Carl Palmer and Sing Sing Sing by Gene Krupa.

I think I only recognized a handful. I need to get out more.
Okay, I will update this what what I've recognize so far: Billy Jean, YYZ, 50 Ways, Hot for Teacher, and Walk This Way. Too young! Didn't hear any Geek USA though.

I always thought Sun of Nothing by Between the Buried and Me had a rather cool transition/intro.

Ambitious, but sorry, I didn't make it past 1:30. Did you include the intro to Waitin For The Wind by Spooky Tooth? That's 33 seconds of drums by itself!!

MAD, you've made a cool compilation! Must have been a good amount of work.
I recognized but a few, e.g. @ 1.13 - that's from Joe Satriani's "Time Machine", right?
This compilation shows the huge variety of drum sounds. Many of those sound a bit specific to my ears at first but somehow I can get used to all of them. Many don't sound too hi-endish but I guess they work great with the rest of the music once everything is in place.

Huge effort, Mr H! I recognised some of them but mostly couldn't recall track names and artist details. Interesting to hear the different EQ and effects too. Ooh, there's Dance with the Devil as I type, now Katrina and the Waves ...

I listened to the whole 10:43 of it and no MONEY FOR NOTHING? The original version SLEEPS until the drums start.

I recognized about 13 or 14.

But as I sat there with my wife trying to puzzle them out, a thought occurred to me.

Drums by themselves just sound like a bunch of racket!

When I said that out loud and started naming some things that they sounded like (stuff falling off a shelf, for example) my wife started cackling and said if I didn't stop, I could add the sound of my wife falling off her chair to the list...

Fun stuff, Henri. thanks!
