Some of the best songs in the world are known for their subtlety. While plenty of artists like to hammer the chorus into your skull from the first time you've heard it, it's a bit of a lost art to keep the listener hanging on your every word before you actually get to the meat of the song. Then again, it sometimes more fun to hook the listener in from the minute you start playing.
Across the pop music spectrum, there have been plenty of songs that get right down to business from the first second you actually hear them. It may be a weird intro for the song or just pushing you right into the chorus, but these songs intend to leave an impression right out of the gate. Granted, some of these intros can be a signal for annoyance just as much as enjoyment, but they have all done their job in introducing some of the biggest earworms that the pop world has to offer.
From grabbing you by the throat to luring you into a trance, these are the songs that will leave an impression as soon as it starts. It may be fun to build up to a strong chorus, but these aren't ones for beating around the bush. Subtlety's for wimps...let's cut right to the chase.
