    Try and top this one, not only for the intro but the tasty guitar work funded by a secretive Dutch millionaire.

    Darn good choice. I'll see your Supertramp, and raise you a Pink Floyd...

    This is the one I would have posted as my top choice.
    Lots of great intros out there, quite often on cover versions of songs that are an 'arrangement'.

    Well, for some reason 5 of the 12 vids posted thus far have "Video Unavailable" and links to YouTube do not take me to the actual vid, so I have no idea what those 5 are, or if they include this one...
