Hey Jay. I found it very distracting. Maybe you can fade the music down to a lower volume and see how that works. Just not make the intro the same volume as when you are talking.
One example would be how a radio presenter will drop the volume on a track when they are talking, but the audio is barely there. Jo Whiley used to be famous for this. And he style was copied A LOT.
Oddly, when you posted this it made me think of the movie Bullitt. I am not sure if you have ever seen Bullitt, but it has one of the most memorable car chase scenes of all times. It starred Steve McQueen in his Mustang. And what made it so infamous was the pure roar of the car engines. Originally they had planned on putting a music track on it! EEK! It would have ruined the scene.
The first two minutes they have music, then when the car chase really begins at the two minute mark they killed the music. This whole scene was originally supposed to have background music.
I'm sure there is a point here somewhere. But sometimes I think it is even more fun to keep it raw.
