Top Ten Songs with Unnecessarily Long IntrosI just think this song intros are too long,not bad.And when a intro is to long or not it depends on the length of the song.
It's a bizarre song start to finish so...
I noticed that in the 70s and 80s, many rock and metal bands used long intros with sounds. Maybe it was well accepted back then but I agree with you in general - I also wanna go straight to the music.
For me the intro is the best part of the song and I play only the intro on a loop, haha. This is my favorite metal intro even though this isn't my favorite metal song and Megadeth aren't my favorite metal band. Just shows how different people are but I'm not saying that being different is a bad thing.
The intro is the best part of this song though and the reason I like Megadeth
I agreed again - I would gladly skip 50 seconds of wind sound.
Is the intro that long?
Justin Bieber hate got old? No problem, we've got our next scapegoat!
This song was written to be an opener to their live shows and has that improvisation air to it meant to get the crowd into the mood. But I would shorten the intro a little bit.
It's about one minute long and the first 40 seconds are very repetitive - because the melody is pretty simple, it quickly gets annoying, at least to me.
This should be #1. The song starts off with a pre-intro (yes, that's a thing) which is a filler that lasts for 4 minutes. Then that is followed up with another acoustic portion (the main intro) that again lasts for another 4 minutes pushing the total intro length to 8 minutes. Can you believe that? 8 minutes. On average, most songs barely even lasts for 4 minutes.
I listened to this song while doing homework because I failed not to switch to something else in other situations.
The intro is the reason that I think this song is one of the most overrated songs of all time
The intro is pretty long because of the bass solo and guitar riffs following after, but I like it.
Takes up half the song.
The version on the "Greatest Hits" album has an unnecessarily long instrumental intro with just the beat. The one on the "Backstreet's Back" album has it edited out.
Sometimes I think the fading in part feels too long.
While I won't deny that Opeth is really good, they can be pretty boring to go through as I feel like their pacing can be really sluggish. And while "Blackwater Park" is a fantastic song, the two-minute intro and the first acoustic solo after the first verse go on far longer than they really should have In my opinion. I'm fine with the rest of the song, but those two sections can get pretty monotonous and boring at times.
