How about one where the intro and the outro are different from the rest of the song?

Stars On 45, with it's cracking disco beginning and ending, which are obviously completely different to whatever theme they picked for the medley in the middle.

Thing I mentioned Pete Rock in the other thread, but many beats he produced have an unrelated intro or outro.

Probably his best known track - They Reminisce Over You - is an example of this. It opens with a sample from the Bahamanian funk band The Beginning of the End which makes no appearance in the rest of the song.

Crap Joan Of Arc by OMD is the third one to come into my head. The dreadful Maid Of Orleans one. That should be a topic. Great/shit songs by bands on the same subject.

It's a shame really, because that opening 20 seconds is brilliant, and far better than the rather average Smiths song that follows it. I'd love to hear a song that builds upon that opening guitar riff instead.

Queen - Breakthru, which from memory adapted the intro from an unfinished song.

The funniest is Reel Big Fish - Brand New Song tho.

The outro of Ice Cream Man by Tom Waits is different to the rest of the song.

If we're doing brilliant intro average song by The Smiths you surely can't beat These Things Take Time in both categories.

You're not thinking of Hand in Glove by any chance? 'Cos the intro to These Things Take Time is the same as the bridge (the "But I can't believe you'd ever care..." bit). I often get those two songs mixed up in the manner described in that recent 'songs which morph into other songs when you try to remember them' thread.

Edit: Hand in Glove is great, just for the record.

Double Edit: Just thinking about it, the intro to Hand in Glove is also used during the refrain and the outro, but I stand by my question!

They All Run After The Carving Knife by New Musik - begins with a minute of Vangelis/Beaubourg-ish gurgling before abruptly turning off into punchy synth-pop territory.

Nope. But it just may be that I think the intro to These Things Take Time is one of the great Smiths intros (topped only by that of Sheila Take A Bow) but  the rest of the song is a bit meh. Never been mad about Hand In Glove either. The b-side was infinitely better.

Actually, Sheila probably fits better into this thread title though.

I was just thinking of George Duke’s I Love You More. Stonking intro riff, sampled by Daft Punk to form the majority of Digital Love, before turning into a mostly unrelated brill but soppy love ballad and never to heard from again. Such a great song to play at a nightclub if you wanted to mess with people. Or a DJ set list where every intro to every track just cuts into the rest of I Love You More each time.

Man Out of Time by Elvis Costello immediately sprang to mind:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XDuHPLzsxM

Good one. The opening is apparently from an early, more-raucous version, which was scrapped. But you probably know that.

It appears again at the end of the song though.

Being a bit picky here because it's not exactly the same, but Sting's I want my MTV/Don't stand so close to me refrain appears later in the song, where it was in the first place. They decided to use it later as part of the intro they thought was needed.
