What is the song of this guitar intro?
I'm looking to remember the song that is used in the opening of this video. I remember it being very famous (and probably from the 80's or 90's), but i can't remember!
(I've got a impression it was b52 or oingo boingo, but couldn't find it in their songs)
ahh - it was over before I even got to my volume dial ;-) It's Billy Idol, Rebel Yell
Sorry, @HenriAugusto - my initial comment was erroneous. I missed the first couple of seconds before I'd turned up my volume & didn't realise there was only about 1 second of the riff - good job I recognised it immediately, though it took me a couple of minutes to figure out which Billy Idol song it was.
@M.Mat - yeah, I wasn't sure. Didn't think it was Spanish, of which I speak about 6 words, wasn't certain enough of it being Portuguese. I really would have removed my less-than-patient comment had it not been part of the flow of later comments - so, red-faced, I left it there ;-) My own *stoopid* fault for not having the speakers up when the vid started.
It's Billy Idol - White Wedding (1982)
Wikipedia: White Wedding (song)
Thanks! I did too thought for a second about Billy Idol haha and i've tried Rebell Yell and Dancing With Myself but gave up on him after that. Because i've thought those were his only two songs i knew. Just happens i forgot i've used to listen White Wedding as i child! That intro sounded so familiar. Now thats a memorable intro!
Absolutely. I recognised it immediately - but jumped to the wrong initial conclusion. As soon as I heard the rebel yell intro then I knew it was White wedding instead. Finding the videos on YouTube actually took longer than the mental process. That is one great intro. Check out 'Eyes Without a Face' for the last great song he did in that series. Again, some lovely guitar work & I think his best song overall.
