OK, since I'm a "Guitar Bitch" as someone put it I feel I should add a few I like that start with Drums:

 

Any live intro by Bun E. Carlos - if that's not allowed than I'll settle on "Ain't that a shame" from Budakon.

 

When the Levee Breaks - Zep

 

Nightflight to Venus - Boney M :dance

up around the bend - ccr

 

long as i can see the light - ccr

 

piano man - billy joel

 

end of the innocence - don henley

 

joyride & fading like a flower - roxette

 

sweet home alabama - lynyrd skynrd (yes, i know i spelt that wrong)

 

hard days night - beatles

 

handy dandy - bob dylan (pretty much an ode to Like a rolling stone)

 

kashmir & hot dog - led zep

That whole song is one big 10:47 opener. Though it kicks. Haha I saw it live once and Ira just threw his guitar everywhere. I think it led into Nuclear war. So much sound!

 

Ha! I guess your right. An intro kind of implies the song changes after the beginning. I guess I just like how each instrument comes in one at a time.

 

We did Cortez the Killer once for 10:47 and I think I threw my guitar everywhere.

Now if I hear that song and nobody is throwing a guitar, I will be severely disappointed.

I've got to second that one. First song that came to my mind.

 

I also like the nod to Candy's Room. An underappreciate tune there.

 

Streets of Fire too!
