Not only the intro, but the whole piano line from "Don't Stop Me Now" is incredible. I wish I knew how to play piano just so I could play that whenever I wanted. That and the three opening chords from "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".

Yeah, anyway, I can't believe I forgot about the intro to Love Of My Life, since I can actually play it. The whole two hands. The thing is, I can only play up to the first "break," which is like 7 seconds in.

Needless to say, these intros are just my favourites, but I spent a lot of time learning them and they are my 'finger warmers' before a gig.
I once played "Don't Stop me Now" on a full-size mobile upright piano (some busker allowed me to), while in the middle of a road ... played for about a minute before I had to move (luckily road wan't too busy). Unusual experience to say the least.
I can't wait for the Seaside footage on the ANATO 30-years edition:P
I think DOTL and DSMN have very nice piano intros. Just listen to a live version of DSMN with that instrumental intro (not the Live Killers one btw).
