Top 10 Songs With the Best Build-Up


The Top TenXW

1Echoes - Pink Floyd

The build-up is just superb. The build-up starts at the end of the crow sound and the eerie part. Bass and drums together make quite an effect. Wright's keyboard solo is just beautiful. A thrilling build-up which gets louder. It's an amazing moment when Gilmour's guitar comes on, and then the vocals.

This is the best song ever. No doubt about it. - PinkFloyd99

2Shine On You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd

It's a great song to listen to when you're reading. The build up is nice and slow, it's great background music, it isn't annoying elevator music, and it inflicts more subconscious thought rather then a strong feeling for a specific subject (like many other songs do, which can make I that to read) - HTML_RuleZ_D00D

3Para - Moby and the Loops of Fury
4I Remember - Deadmau5
5Not Exactly - Deadmau5
6Electrons - Black Tiger Sex Machine

This track is very underrated. A trance-inducing beat leading to a crazy sound of addiction. - PositronWildhawk

Another amazing build-up. 8 minutes. From the first minute to the guitar solo to Plant's screaming at the end, it blows the mind. - PinkFloyd99

Right from the beginning it builds up for an epic finale with the solo and Plant's vocals at the end. - zam67
