I always liked Paperback Writer's intro. a-hard-days-night-paul-2a-hard-days-night-george-2a-hard-days-night-john-2

John's acoustic intro on Dear Prudence and WMGGW are a close second and third, for me at least. a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-george-4

I'm a HUGE sucker for Revolution. Every time my dad and I hear it, we jump and get all excited and CRANK IT UP. My mom always tells us to turn it down and says we're breaking the speakers. pfffffffffffffffffffff.

And Your Bird Can Sing, but I suppose that's the riff…

All Together Now gets me going, oddly enough

Can't Buy Me Love always instantly has me singing along. At the top of my lungs.

Do You Want To Know A Secret. a-hard-days-night-george-10 Yes George, I do know how much you really love me.

 

Maybe I should just stop. I'm going through my iPod and I'm going to end up listing probably 50 of thema-hard-days-night-paul-3

can't….stop…FROMMETOYOUGETBACKDOCTORROBERTSHESAIDSHESAID

Control yourself, Jet. *9*

I agree with Kelicopter. It's not flashy; you don't jump out of your seat as with Revolution, but the intro to While My Guitar is fabulously effective. A great Macca contribution. Also exceedingly simple but very effective, the intro to Strawberry Fields.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Absolutely. Sometimes I'm glad Paul wanted to shine in George's songs because his contribution is just awesome. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

Blackbird (Loving that acoustic guitar!)

Because (This is my go-to song when I find myself in times of trouble… sorry, Let it Be a-hard-days-night-paul-1)

I Am The Walrus

She's Leaving Home (That harp!)

Good Morning Good Morning (The rooster call… should make that my ring tone)

All You Need Is Love (because the Beatles can start off their song with the French anthem)

 

Any of their mid-period guitar riff songs (Day Tripper, I Feel Fine, Ticket To Ride)

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

So far not mentioned:

Its All Too Much. John's "to your mother", then the guitars, organs, drums all being gradually added on top of one another (and whatever else they added in). Definately requires to be played full blast.

What You're Doing's Ringo's Drums (nicely playing as a never ending loop in wavepad as i type).

 

Of mention:

A Day In The Life

I Feel Fine

While My Guitar

 

O/T For anyone who hasnt heard Be My Baby on the Lennon anthology it has one of the greatest ever builds of any intro; guitar + bass + piano + sax + drums, each 1 being added on top of the previous others. One of the best John solo songs/vocals and simply wrong that its buried deep on an outtakes boxset. Cannot praise this song enough.

"One, two, three, faw!"  That's probably my single favourite, but "The Word" and "It's All Too Much" and "Good Morning Good Morning" and "Rain" (and more!) all have intros that really stand out as well.

These guys were masters at innovative intros! "A Hard Day's Night", "Eight Days A Week", "I Feel Fine" – all pretty much unprecedented in 1964. I love "Eight Days" especially, hearing that fade-in is like watching an entire sunrise in five seconds.

"Nowhere Man" is so odd, the way the instruments just appear out of nowhere. It sounds like they recorded the backing track, then added the vocals, then erased the backing up to "…making all his nowhere plans". At least, it sounds that way to me.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I'm going to say A Hard Day's Night: That one chord is just a perfect intro to a great song. You know you are listening to something good when you hear that chord. Plus, the when the song is playing in the beginning of the movie, it creates this perfect beginning to something fun with all the running, screaming, and George falling. You can't go wrong there.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps: Flawless song has flawless everything. Flawless intro. Flawless lyrics. Flawless guitar solo. I think this song is… I can't think of the word.

Here Comes The Sun

Helter Skelter

Revolution 9: Admit it. You love when George Martin says "cheeky bitch". Then it starts….

Get Back

She Said She Said

A Day In The Life

Money (That's What I Want): Just a fun piano intro. And then you start dancing.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.
