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?

I've been checking through The Beatles singles. I reckon these are contenders:

We Can Work It Out - The Beatles

With A Little Help From My Friends - The Beatles

Hello Goodbye - The Beatles

Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

BTW, were it not for that opening sus chord, "Hard Day's Night" would have fitted the bill, surely?

Thats a No-Goer too, 'kerrrang......it's been a (then the band is in) Hard days night.. Has to be straight in to the song, the whole band and the singer singing the verse or chorus within the first bar.

We Can Work It Out - The Beatles (the jury is out on this one)

With A Little Help From My Friends - The Beatles (Billy Shears moment?? and the 'WHOLE' band is'nt in on the first bar)

Hello Goodbye - The Beatles (no proper drums on the first bar)

Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles (it's all violins and cellos' none of the band were any where in it, let alone the first bar, plus it was a B side to Yellow Submarine)

I think you could have one with 'We can work it out' , not realy the whole band in, but it's not the one that came up,

lol lord, can you just tell us if it's the beatles?

Why pick on just the first bar of this particular song? :lol: , I was thinking of Lennon's cruel (and not really correct) dig at Ringo.

Anyhoo, I was thinking it'd be an early chart song, before radio loved the intro so that their DJs could prattle endlessly over the opening bars, but Lee distinctly mentioned a 70s/80s five-piece. I had a feeling that surely Queen must fit the bill. The trouble is, they most often have n bars of vocal before the instruments come in. Would this cover of "We will rock you" count, though?

It thought Queen too, and than I thought, hey didn't Invisible Man fit the bill. F'kin has an intro. Arg.

Not the Beatles, not Queen either, think of a singles band, British, i think they are still about today but with a change of 2 or 3 original members, all from London, from 78-2000 they were credited with 46 released singles, 22 charted in the UK, 8 were in the top 20, 3 were in the top 5.

Madness?

Flock Of Seagulls! Peter Frampton!

No, no and ermm definatly not.

1 keyboard
1 drummer
2 guitars
and a bass player, so that's 4 musicians and a drummer.
