Has anyone said Imperium by Machine Head yet?

Hear Me Now

Also, an underage ddraver would have said Closer by NIN because all you had to hear was the opening drums and the floor in the rock club - the club guaranteed never to ID - would empty and the stage would fill with equally underage mini-goths that would gyrate for the rest of the song in such a way that drove him crazy...

If we’re going to discuss Edwin Starr then we can’t leave out ‘War’ one of the great intros!

On the subject of Northern Soul, for a great intro look no further than ‘So Is The Sun’ by World Column

I never could get So Is The Sun as a Northern record, I know Levine played it at the Highland Room but latterly he played anything with a beat in the name of Northern Soul.

I have a 12" of it and think I have played it once, just never did it for me. I think I would term it as "attempted funk"

Now the opening to this gets me right away.
