Nice idea! Shame about the post...

Bon Jovi's "Living On a Prayer" used to always trick me into thinking it was some synth-pop hit I didn't already know.

Though it definitely is: Nice Intro! Nice Song! Jump On It never fails to trick me into thing it's going to be an electro banger closer to Afrika Bambaataa than Bar-Mitzvah party rap.

"Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress" just came on & this is a god paraphrase of what I thought.

definitely no shame about the song here, but very high (and disappointed) expectations after the intro

Not a shame about... but

The start of Nancy Sinatra's 'These Boots...' is killer, then just kind of a generic song.

it's probably a sample, in which case would like to know what

abbott, this is where our musical tastes part ways. I love that song.

i agree re: "livin on a prayer" though apparently people think that song is actually good or something.

i was going to say "from this moment on" by shania twain... but my opinions on the intro and the actual song both fluctuate constantly. sometimes i think one is amazing and the other is terrible. sometimes i think they're both amazing. sometimes i think they're both terrible. which is it?

"Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress" starts out as a Byrds songs and winds up a Creedence song.

the opening to Van Halen's "Right Here, Right Now" overshadows the verses and chorus by a long shot

I used to hear this song a lot where I worked and always thought it had a really interesting intro but then after 15 seconds it just turns into the same old shit he puts out time after time.

I like Swing Out Sister's "Breakout" but the first couple seconds would have you thinking you're going to hear some pensive, moody Pet Shop Boys-type song of heartbreak.

spanikopitcon (Abbott), Monday, 9 August 2010 21:11 (nine years ago) link

i don't dislike the song or anything, but the piano intro here should really be used as a sample, by someone very rich.

Bullet with Butterfly Wings..."Despite all my rage I'm still just a rat in a cage" is probably the closest a chorus of a song has ever come to resembling the auditory equivalent of a dog-turd...(still not quite as bad as "Let Down" though...)

"This Love" by Maroon 5 is IMO OK, and way better than anything else they've done, but it still doesn't quite hold the same standard as the brilliant intro:

I should have known from the start that Barry couldn't sustain a funk-metal groove for an entire track, but I'm still slightly heartbroken 😔

true

for the record, the song in the OP was 'My Heart Will Go On' (which is melodic af from start to finish, so I have no idea what Geir was complaining about)

Actually, I'm listening to snatches of Sleeper's top spotify songs and every single one starts like it's going to be awesome, then goes straight into chirpy Britpop

"Sweet Jane" by The Velvet Underground

3×5, Wednesday, 7 August 2019 03:02 (four months ago) link

"Sympathy for the Devil." I think it's a good song overall, it just has dumb lyrics. But the intro with all the screaming is so cool that I'm always a bit let down when Jagger starts singing and it's like, "Oh, right, Mick read a book."
