Top 10 Songs With the Best Build-Up

PinkFloyd99

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

The Contenders

11 Station to Station - David Bowie

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
