The Sunday Spotify: Caught Off Guard

Having dealt with outros in my previous playlist, this week it’s the turn of the intro to hold centre stage. This week’s collection includes intros that catch you off guard – whether it’s because of a confusing polyrhythm, a shift of tempo, or simply a great bit of instrumentation, one that grabs you by the ears and forces you to pay attention.

The list kicks off with Rope, by Foo Fighters, a beautiful example of that band’s capacity to create a sound that is both complicated

It’s quite dominated by classic rock, but you can’t look past some of these. More interesting choices include the Hollies’ surprisingly muscular hit, Long Cool Woman (In a Black Dress), which comes knocking on your door masquerading as something far less catchy than it turns out to be.
