Songs that have no intro

I listened to a question on the radio abouts songs that start with the whole band coming in, no intro, no click click, no one two three... just straight in, it also has to have been a hit single in the UK, and the singing has to start in the first bar. apparently, there is only 1, but i know of another, the one i thought of is 'Buddy Holly' by Weezer, can you guess the other one?

American Pie?

One only... I doubt it... seems like there are 2 more already bought up here.

I'm keen to here what they had but Lee.

Edit: Is doo-wop counted?

American pie?? no way, the whole band isnt in playing, just that watery vocal and a piano.
It's a lot harder than you think.

The WHOLE band has to be playing, including the vocal in the first bar.
And a UK hit single too, no obscure Genesis tracks.

Even if they did, Genesis would make up for it with a 23 minute introduction of Phil Collins eating puff cakes in the video version of the song.

Elvis Presley, Hound Dog. #2 on the 1956 UK singles chart. Done Deal.

Unless Lee says it has to be a "band."

Close, but I don't think so. Elvis leads the band in. I'm trying to remember whether that monstrously blown "Glorious" has the "She-ee-eeee-ee-ee-ee" vocal bit right at the start, in which case...

EDIT: Nope. It even has a pointlessly lengthy "wibby wibbby wibby" start.

Not only does it have the wibbly start, but once the band is in where is the vocal??? oh yeah there it is, 16 bars behind the intro!!!

I tell you, it's a lot lot harder than you think, it was brought up on a radio show and thousands were e-mailing in and texting, nobody got it, there is only 1 other, by a British band late 70's early 80's.

Theres your clue.

1st one to get it gets Mikes free tuition time!!

Hello??? Hello?? where did everyone go?

I request just one more clue. Just one more Lee.

not around today, lots of singles success, great songwriters. i think there were 5 in the band.
