Intros/Outros?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Just listened to Kate Bush/Wuthering Heights on radio, i quite like the song but love the outro with Dave Gilmours guitar playing and swirling strings, i find myself turning volume full on just hear every last second of the song as it fades away!, any others guilty of this?! (not this particular song i might add! )

intros and outros often have a lot of good character, and often are my favorite parts of songs.

Having been in a band I HATE those fade outs... they sound so awesome but just can't be done live, which can really take away what the songwriter wanted to do... Any bands who can do pull that off, I take my hats off to you.

Pretty much impossible to milk the crowd for the desired eruption of manic applause with a fade out in any song.
Outro - My Old School - Steely Dan

I've usually thought of fade-outs as wimp-outs in most cases, with the exception of memorable fades, such as "Hey Jude" and "See Me, Feel Me," which are a lost art of sorts. Almost every song I've done has had a proper ending. But it would be amazing for a band to pull off a fade live...

I would also add Derek & the Dominos "Layla" with its piano/acoustic guitar fade/outro.

I'm a fan of one song fading into another. I think it's cool when done right. Sometimes it can sound forced, though. :-\

Well, 48 bar transitions were usual for the Grateful Dead...are for me...
fake a fade,next song please.If you prefer not,ok,but a few unexpected changes do a lot.
I'd talk specifically if ya wanna.You CAN do it!

I am sure I have more. Metallica is awesome at intros.

The End by The Doors. Depending on how many versions of the song you have, the middle will almost always have a different set of content since it is Jim doing poetry.
But awesome intro IMO. Light My Fire is another awesome intro tune.

Can't believe nobody's mentioned the intro to the Theme from Shaft yet - got to be the best ever.

Basically the entire second have of the Beatles Abbey Road Album.

Also A Day In A Life. They were truly pioneers at combining efforts of two views into one song for sure.

This was mostly in reference to the flow of the whole album with intros and ties to the next track. Main reason why I love Abbey Road and Dark Side Of The Moon so much. I don' think you can truly get a feel for a single on the radio if not hearing the whole album and state of mind those artists were in at that time.

EDIT....damn, I meant HALF not HAVE.
