Song Intros - Part 2

Since part 1 of the song intro compilation was fun, and since I'm sick with a cold (and hence not riding), it's time to roll out part 2. Here's the drill: I collected the intros of all the songs I like and put them together in sequence. Here is part 2 with artists S through Y at just over 4 minutes in a 5 meg MP3:

Song Intros part 2

So, who's up to the challenge this time? List the artist and title of each song in the comments.

(OK, the name of the artist of the first song technically doesn't start with the letter S, but the second word of the title does - close enough).

And as if there was any question, Rio's Rider essentially named all the songs of part 1 - good job!

Oh, goody! Part two! Something to keep me busy tomorrow and help the time fly by. I'm glad you enjoy putting these together as much as I enjoy figuring them out.

I've almost got it. There's five songs I know that I know, but I can't place the names. I'll post my list when I've got them all.

Any hints for #3, 4, 5, 7 & 15 (which I know I would have if someone hadn't started singing "Smooth Operator" and now I can't think of anything else)?

You got a lot of the songs I thought would be difficult. Let me try some hints:

#3 - A bad thing that happens to long hair.

#4 & 5 - Artist initials S. D.

#7 - Same artist as #8.

#15 - In the 80's he won a Grammy.

Well done! Looks like you got more than half of the ones that were giving you trouble.

As for #8, it just has a very long intro. ;-)
