The Stereolab songs with the best intro

I would nominee:
Gus the Mynah Bird (I once dreamed a strange aquarium and the intro of this song was playing then and it felt like the most heavenly music ever!)
Metronomic Undeground
One Note Samba / Surfboard
Ticker-Tape of the Unconscious
...Sudden Stars
Des etoiles Electroniques


Maybe more, but I don't remember now

Re: The Stereolab songs with the best intro

I agree on "Gus the Mynah Bird" and I'd just like to state that I'd love to snatch up a vinyl of Sound-Dust, there the intro to "Gus" is even longer, more full-blown, three minutes of Steve Reich doing "SMiLE" kind of bliss.

Other favorite intros:
The Black Arts (shimmering beauty)
Come and Play In the Milky Night (dig those guitars, plus a very spacey sound at the start)
Contronatura (swelling organ a la Third era Soft Machine)
Old Lungs (dig that nasty fuzz bass)
Slow Fast Hazel (very effective, begins with Laetitia taking a breath and then lead vocals immediately with full band sound)
You Used to Call Me Sadness (some really cool avant-garde noises, then a drumbeat on the Lissy's version)
1000 Miles an Hour (a very tranquil first half a la Philip Glass channeled via Spacemen 3)

The first few minutes of "Young Lungs" (before the vocals kick in). Always loved that laid-back swinging drum beat with the simple bass notes and that hypnotic organ/synth swirl. I prefer this version to "Old Lungs" any day of the week.

Gotta agree with all of those, and add Tempter. I love that swirling bubbly synth line.

And Super-Electric!
