Crazy by Seal. I used to cue past
the opening soft portion and what sounded like soft
improvisation on Seal's part. Then I started with the
climactic "Dum" about eight seconds in.


Yes, I forgot about Crazy, but that's about how I remember
hearing it during its original chart run.

Does any one remember how radio treated Kim Carnes "Crazy
In The Night" when it was on the charts? I would think
stations would have cued past the knocking and "who is it?"
right to the synths.

Here's the 45 version being played from a promo 45.

So that's a definite yes and no. Ha!

I should have specified the solo flapamba. Thanks for the link.

"The Way" - Fastball (cued past sfx)

There is an official radio edit that omits the radio tuning sound effects during the intro.

And many stations cut off the acapella intro from Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You", in addition to the shortened ending of the official radio edit. When they were told to play it that way, some DJs joked "We now join Whitney Houston, already in progress".

And a more recent example -- on Passenger's "Let Her Go", some stations shortened the long pause before the final phrase, or just ended the song at that point.

Had forgotten about that one. Every station I heard it
on (including mine) made that edit.

Don't think I've ever heard a version of the Passenger
song with a long pause, so that must have been the promo
version.

We mostly played the shortened version of the Whitney
Houston song. Don't know if it was an official edit, we
used TM Hitdiscs, and that was on one of them.
I absolutely HATED that song (still do), and anything
that made it shorter was fine by me!

ISTR we shortened the intro on the Fastball song even
beyond what was on the promo. I was MD, so that one was
on me.

Hi Steve, somewhere on the forum, I seem to recall a
discussion that the edit on the Hitdiscs was a TM edit and
not official.

So not only was the flapamba edited out, the single was sped up a bit. Think the single of "Pretzel Logic"
was as well.

I don't know if it was "typically cued" but I cut off the "hit" and audience" from the
beginning of "We Didn't Start the Fire", starting the song when the actual "music"
started.
                                                   
The intro point on any "fade in" song was different everywhere, like "More Than a
Feeling", Elton's "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" or Anne Murray's "You Won't See Me".
Sometimes a station would just crank up the volume on the intro so it wasn't a fade it
at all and ride the gain. Again, it varied station by station.

Another song with a frequent cut off intro: Black Water by the Doobie Brothers. Often
starting when the guitars came in. It was a great example of a station's turntable
rumble when they didn't!

Not everyone did this, but I used to skip the first 26 seconds of "We Like To Party" by the Vengaboys, basically eliminating the whole ramp-up
to the hook. It gave it way more energy, especially coming out of a stopset.
