Question Popular Song Intros - Reveal Saturday, August 1 @ 9 p.m.

Everyone appreciates a song intro. It can hold your interest and excitement for what’s to come or it can completely obliterated a song’s chances of being heard. Some intros are so powerful that five seconds is enough to get a song stuck in one’s head all day.

Below is a video containing 18 popular song intros. It was 20, but WMG objected to my using #19, so I trimmed out the last two songs. Your job is to identify the song and artist of each. Do that better than everyone else who plays, achieve eternal glory. I legit have no frame of reference for how easy or difficult this is. I predict somewhere between multiple perfectos and unmitigated disaster.

***NO RESEARCH ALLOWED***

Here’s the playlist:


Scoring:
Correct song = 1 point
Correct artist = 1 point
Reasonable explanation of the song* = 0.5 points

***NO RESEARCH ALLOWED***

PM me a list with your answers. In general, I’d prefer you to answer in the form of [Artist] - [Song], but I won’t penalize formatting as long as I can follow what you’re doing. Entries are due Saturday, August 1 at 9 p.m. server time with the reveal to follow shortly thereafter. Good luck and thanks for playing!

***NO RESEARCH ALLOWED***

*Decision criteria for “reasonable” will follow the guidelines for arbitrary and capricious judgment as outlined in Tom’s Rules of Moderation

Awesome!

Haven't listened yet, but I assume at least one of the songs I submitted to your walrus made it in there.

I realize that it should be self-evident, but what by what criteria is a song is popular? Is there a range of years or decades the songs are from? If yes, are you willing to divulge said range? If yes, please post said range.

Nothing completely obscure, i.e., generally well-known, charted, featured in films, tons of (US) radio airplay, etc.

There’s a song from 1958 and a song from 2011.

Hey guys, please do me a solid and don’t click on “Show More” under the video. Youtube has rightfully credited all of the music and copyright holders which, you know, gives away every song in the game. Thanks.

So that means 2011 is the newest song right?

Reasonable explanation of the song only if you don't know the exact band or title right? Like we're not supposed to be giving a dissertation of every song

Yeah, it’s a way to shoot for half credit if you don’t know the artist/song title.

Re: Popular Song Intros - Reveal Saturday, August 1 @ 9 p.m.

Only one song I don't think I know... one I know, but may get partial credit at best... one I think I have right artist at least... one I'm not quite certain... the rest I'm fairly certain, except I may have butchered a song title or two
