Top Ten Songs that Start with a Drum FillGg2000 This is a list of songs that start off with a drum fill. The difference between a drum fill and a drum solo is that a drum fill is a short, melodic passage intended to move from one section to the next. If you could play the fill in the middle of the song and it would still work, then it would count as a fill. Feel free to add more examples.
The Top Ten
The song starts with a drum fill from John Bonham; it's always been one of my favorites. - Gg2000
The song starts with a drum fill, goes into the main drum pattern, and then the rest of the band kicks in. It grooves so well. - Gg2000
A very short drum fill, but the snare sound really pops out. - Gg2000
The drum fill is really fast and in your face, and it ends a beat later than you expect it to. - Gg2000
The song starts out with stomping feet and a drum fill, which occurs throughout the whole song. Famous session musician Bobby Graham played the drums on this song; he really knew how to make it stand out. - Gg2000
Mitch Mitchell opens the song with a really neat drum fill. Unlike the other entries, Mitch used a pair of brushes rather than a pair of drumsticks, giving it that quiet, muted sound. - Gg2000
Not a big fan of Kiss, but I really enjoy Peter Criss' intro fill. It does a good job of setting up the record. - Gg2000
The song opens up with a fill and a drum beat that was played by Stevie Wonder himself. Jeff Beck came up with the drum pattern while participating in the album sessions, and Stevie Wonder improvised the rest of the song on top of that; thus, the demo for "Superstition" was created. - Gg2000
Great start to a song! - TheHabsFan
