    They ain't a true reflection of sales like they were years ago, though. Jeez, if you listen to summat on Spotify nowadays they stick it down as a chart success! Haven't bothered to look at the charts for years! At least since the late 90's!

    No HH, its not that one, trying to google Maggie May but they all seem to have short acoustic intro's.
    I'm sure I heard a version with a long intro to it!

    If you're going to go for Hawkwind, then surely the best intro would be 'Master of the Universe'. Ah, I feel old now.

    Bringing it right up to date though, or at least the late seventies, I've got a thing for "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus - I think that's got a twenty minute intro. Or maybe it just feels that way.

    You could demonstrate how cool you were by joining in with the actual singing at just the moment when it started, assuming that you hadn't fallen asleep or slashed your wrists by then. :)
