I think She Sells Sanctuary has probably been my favourite.

Magnum PI would be great though.

yes, but you have no idea which gig was that?

the best "intro" was Revolution Revolution Revolution Revolution... from Heavenly gig. THIS was epic.

Oh... you mean the first time they did it?? You had me confused.

Not sure...

From Wikipedia...

When performing live, the band begin the song with a few lines from another song. From around 1991 until 1997, James would sing the chorus to the Motown classic "Baby Love", often changing the lyrics on the spot. During 1998/99, the song began with the riff from Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"; since then the Manics have used the "Motown Junk Medley" to pay tribute to Van Halen's "Jump" and Guns N' Roses "Sweet Child O' Mine". On their May 2007 tour, the Manics used the first verse of "Condemned To Rock And Roll" to begin the song, and during the December tour the band played a shortened version of The Cult's "She Sells Sanctuary" as an intro. In the summer of 2008, they returned to preceding live performances of the song with "Baby Love.", whilst for the Journal for Plague Lovers tour in 2009, this song was proceeded by "Stop in the Name of Love".

That gig has the best versions of quite a few songs: Motown Junk, You Love Us, A Design For Life and Faster especially.

I'm never sure which intro I'm hearing! Must've heard The Cure one though in 2007! Not really sure which one is my ultimate fave, I'd be all for a Rush intro. That would be cool!

My favourite Baby Love improv from James is 'Maybe I'll just hold and kiss you... I don't think so!'.
