Some cracking selections already. Also on the "simple but instantly recognisable" end of the spectrum has to be Song 2 by Blur

I'm surprised how long it took for someone to mention this, which is the very first intro to come into my head. Great intro - great track. And I'm speaking as a 67 year old who had lived through the entire history of rock music and before.

In reply to Smitty W. - (The Power Station's 'Some like it hot') - I seem to recall around that time a reviewer stating that the intro reminded him of 'a budgie having an orgasm!'

Apparently, that is true, although the record label insisted on a plausible cover story, ergo the drums legend, John.

A cracking intro by the greatest drummer that ever lived[wrong genre though-sorry].
He could play a drum roll with one stick using either left or right hand-i
never heard of anyone else who could! He even played a drum solo using
2 bass drums and NO STICKS!!
