Favorite "Non-Musical" song intro?
Posted by: Lux Interior
Date: March 30, 2022 09:44AM
My shower thoughts this morning were after I started reciting one of my favorite spoken intros.

When I was back there in seminary school
There was a person there
Who put forth the proposition
That you can petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the Lord with prayer
You cannot petition the Lord with prayer!


So what is your current favorite?

Another one of mine is the intro to The Ocean

We've done four already
But now we're steady
And then they went
One, two, three, four


This one is from the same album as the first, but it is actually sung, so it doesn't really qualify.

David Wilcox (the folk musician, not the Canadian rocker) has a bunch of these. I can't think of a specific one right now...

I've always really enjoyed the opening of Jon and Vangelis' "The Friends of Mr. Cairo."



It is what it is.

YOU CANNOT PETITION THE LORD WITH PRAYER!!



Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

I've always liked "Atlantis" by Donovan.

The continent of Atlantis was an island
Which lay before the great flood
In the area we now call the Atlantic Ocean.
So great an area of land,
That from her western shores
Those beautiful sailors journeyed
To the South and the North Americas with ease,
In their ships with painted sails.
To the East Africa was a neighbour,
Across a short strait of sea miles.
The great Egyptian age is

But a remnant of The Atlantian culture.
The antediluvian kings colonised the world
All the Gods who play in the mythological dramas
In all legends from all lands were from far Atlantis.

Knowing her fate,
Atlantis sent out ships to all corners of the Earth.
On board were the Twelve:

The poet, the physician, The farmer, the scientist,
The magician and the other so-called Gods of our legends.
Though Gods they were -
And as the elders of our time choose to remain blind
Let us rejoice
And let us sing
And dance and ring in the new Hail Atlantis!

EDIT: Well, he is strumming a guitar while reciting this verse, but I think it still holds up.

Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bed-sitter people look back and lament
Another day's useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none,
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white,
But we decide which is right,
And which is an illusion.

Babelogue/Rock&Roll Ni__er

I haven't @#$%& much with the past
But I've @#$%& plenty with the future
Over the skin of silk are scars
From the splinters of stations and walls I've caressed
A stage is like each bolt of wood
Like a, like a log of Helen, is my pleasure
I would measure the success of a night by the way, by the way I
By the amount of piss and seed I could exude
Over the columns that nestled the P.A.
Some nights I'd surprise everybody by skipping off
With a skirt of green net sewed over
With flat metallic circles which dazzled and flashed
The lights were violet and [Incomprehensible] white
I had an ornamental veil, I can't bear to use it
With the way my hair was cropped, I craved, craved covering
But now that my hair itself is a veil
And the scalp inside is a scalp of a crazy
And a sleepy Comanche lies beneath this netting of skin
I wake up, I am lying peacefully
I am lying peacefully and my knees are open to the sun
I desire him and he is absolutely ready to seize me
In, in, in, in, in heart, I am a Muslim, in heart, I am an American
In heart, I am Muslim, in heart, I'm an American artist and I have no guilt
I seek pleasure, I seek the nerves under your skin
The narrow archway, the layers, the scroll of ancient lettuce
We worship the flaw, the belly, the belly
The mole on the belly of an exquisite @#$%&
He spared the child and spoiled the rod
I have not sold myself to God

"Must Of Got Lost"

Hold on this song has a little introduction to it
It's ain't supposed to be sad though you might feel it that way
It's a song about desperation,
Every now and then we do get desperate

This is a song about L-O-V-E,
and if you abuse it you're gonna lose it
and if you lose it you're gonna abuse and
if you abuse it you ain't gonna be able to choose it
'Cause you ain't gonna have it further on down the line
things ain't gonna be so fine
you're gonna to be sitting there on your little machine
tryin' to look and keep it clean
You're going to be home playing bingo all night all alone
that's why your sittin' there by the telephone
and you know that she ain't goin' to call you!

So you put on the TV and you're watchin' Johnny Carson
segwayin' right into the Tomorrow show
but that don't got the go so you turn it off ya turn on the radio,
the radio don't seem to get the click so you say
"Hey Man, I can't lickety split"
You start to open up a little book
and there's somethin' there you got to overlook
and you say "Baby, you know there's somethin' on my mind!
"You say "Baby there's somethin' on my mind -
I know that you're home and I know you ain't all alone!"

So you start walking over to her house
and you get over to her house
and you walk over to her door
you start poundin' on her door, you say
"Open up the door bitch!
This is wooba gooba with the green teeth, let me in"

Well, she opens up the door
and then you just kinda walk up to her and say
"Baby", you look up way up at her green mascara
and you say "Oh my darling,
you know her and me was at the party as friends
do not believe what they say
that's only gossip that they tellin' ya
a wise cracker line!"
You say Darlin'

Take your big curls and just squeeze them down Ratumba
What's the name of the chick with the long hair?
(Rapunzel!) ya say hey Rapunzel! heh heh heh
Hey Reputah! Reputa the Beautah!
Hey Reputa the Beautah flip me down your hair
and let me climb up to the ladder of your love
Because this is what woofa goofa's sayin to ya
"Love comes once and when it comes
you've got to grab it fast 'cause sometimes the love
you grab ain't gonna last and
I believe I musta,
You know I think I musta,
You know baby I think I musta,
You know I think I musta,
I musta got lost

"We've done four already but now we're steady
And then they went: One, two, three, four"

Screw it, I won't get fooled again by any of your spoken words, so I'm stickin' w/ the first 43 seconds of this, best ever *real* musical intro....


But if you still insist on a "non-musical" intro, I'll burn y'all's asses to dust, because....!

"I AM THE GOD OF HELL FIRE!
...and I bring you...
FIRE! "

But it's "woofa goofa."

Might be cheating because it was released as an album track later, but “When The Tigers Broke Free” was the intro to "In the Flesh?" in the movie "The Wall" and it's haunting.

[youtu.be]

It was just before dawn
One miserable morning in black 'forty four,
When the forward commander
Was told to sit tight
When he asked that his men be withdrawn.

And the Generals gave thanks
As the other ranks held back
The enemy tanks for a while,
And the Anzio bridgehead
Was held for the price
Of a few hundred ordinary lives.

Kind old King George
Sent mother a note
When he heard that father was gone.
It was, I recall
In the form of a scroll
With gold leaf adorned.
And I found it one day
In a drawer of old photographs, hidden away,
And my eyes still grow damp to remember
His Majesty signed
With his own rubber stamp.

It was dark all around
There was frost in the ground
When the tigers broke free,
And no one survived
From the Royal Fusiliers Company Z.

They were all left behind,
Most of them dead,
The rest of them dying.
And that's how the High Command
Took my daddy from me.
