Disappointing Songs

James and I are discussing songs with really awesome intros, where the actual song comes as a disappointment afterwards. Not that the song is necessarily bad, per se, but that the intro is SO good that the rest of the song can't help but pale behind it.

We both agree on Pinball Wizard by The Who.

I suggested Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne, which for the first 30 seconds is all dark drama & then suddenly becomes Status Quo. Also Phantom of the Opera by Iron Maiden and I Fought the Law by the Clash - both of which I LOVE but the intro is definitely the best bit.

James suggested 20th Century Boy by T Rex, A View to a Kill by Duran Duran, & (somewhat controversially in my view) One Vision by Queen - although I'll admit it does sag a bit in the middle.

What would your picks be?
