    The fact that Queen and the Beatles scored double mentions in your top ten speaks volumes!

    Roberta Flack's voice is divine. My classically trained father had no love for pop and rock music, but the very first time he heard Roberta singing "Killing me softly" (courtesy moi) he almost froze and said "Who is that? That's a beautiful voice!". He always listened to my Roberta collection after that. ps: in a video about excellence in vocal singing and harmony, not a single song by CSNY? 'Helplessly Hoping' is a masterpiece.

    Three others worth listing:

    “Eleanor Rigby” is one of the best vocal intros of all time - that chord is amazing

  • Brett K

    Thank you for including Jethro Tull. Such amazing musicians all of them.

    My favorite solo vocal intro has to be Oh Sherrie by Steve Perry. Nothing beats the raw power of his unaccompanied voice.

  • Uncle Bullhorn

    Pat Benatar's "Shadows of the Night" deserved a slot on this list. Soaring harmonies and it leads into a massive opening riff on guitar and organ.

    “Can you tell me where my country lies” - such a great and unexpected a cappella opening sung by Peter Gabriel with Genesis. You rock Rick!

  • matej škafar

    Somebody To Love from Queen is my by far favourite vocal intro of all times....

  • Sarah Fye

    Not sure if anyone else mentioned this, but I’m really surprised Otis Redding’s These Arms of Mine didn’t take a spot. So much emotion and soul in those few words.

    Little River Band is one of the underappreciated greats.

  • Martha Vanderpool

    “Mr. Moonlight” sung by John Lennon gives me goosebumps every time!

  • Daniel Toma

    Ian Anderson is one of the most underrated songwriters of the rock era

  • robert mcgrory

    Great list! I think "Somebody to Love" by Queen and "Number of the Beast" by Iron Maiden should have been mentioned. Although the latter wasn't done by a member of the band, it's instantly recognizable.

  • Cheifareno
    Cheifareno 19 годин тому +2

    Lulu's shout should have been on the list IMO, an incredible opening.

  • A N

    Is there a full version of Ain't no Sunshine? Her voice is sublime

  • aerrhh

    “You Take My Breath Away” from Queen has also a damn good vocal intro! It’s not well knowned but should definitely be on that list!

    It's such. Relief when number 2 makes me smile because I had forgotten how fantastic it is, yet it's the second in the top five by the same band. And then, to be able to just smile and say "Of course!" When number 1 finally appears 😊

    Oh the lady who sang "A'int no Sunshine" was just divine!

    I was so pleased to see "Songs From The Wood" on the list. Around Christmas 1976 I was working as a paramedic-firefighter in Fairbanks, Alaska. Our department had some training funds available, and they sent each of us to Long Beach FD for three weeks to ride along with paramedics in a really busy urban department.
