Top 10 Songs With the Best Build-Up


The Top Ten

1 Echoes - 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

I just knew this would be number one. - PositronWildhawk

2 Shine 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

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

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

7 Welcome to the Machine - Pink Floyd
8 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
9 Love Somebody - Robbie Williams
10 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Nice build up from ballad to opera to hard rock. - PinkFloyd99

The Newcomers

? Hurt - Johnny Cash
? Exit Music (For a Film) - Radiohead

That buildup is insane

The Contenders

11 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

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

12 Station to Station - David Bowie
13 Crystal - New Order
14 Paradise City - Guns N' Roses
15 Civil Unrest - Kings of Tomorrow
16 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses
17 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
18 Careful With That Axe, Eugene - Pink Floyd

Water's screaming almost gave me a heart attack. - PinkFloyd99

19 Gut Feeling - Devo

This is one mindblowing piece of late 70's new wave... Devo gets it perfect here... Watch end part of dogtown and z boys to experience it

20 Supremacy - Muse
