Friday night music thread: Great opening tracks.
Good thread. I'm sure I'll think of loads later, but the first one to come to mind was The Kiss by the Cure. They also opened with this when I went to see them live in Birmingham NEC and I was right in the front row!
Also, didn't Frankie Goes to Hollywood kick off with a mega long version of Welcome to the Pleasuredome?Posted 7 years agothekingisdeadMember
Driving to work this morning, 6.30am, a little Pantera on the player to blow away the cobwebs.
Got me thinking, which albums have great opening tracks? An opening track that really get you into the album with a bang. The albums don't have to be classics, just have great opening songs.
(if you wanna include the Eating, drinking, listening thats fine to)
I'll kick off:
Pantera – Cowboys from Hell – Cowboys from Hell.
RATM – Bombtrack – RATM.
Aerosmith – Eat the Rich – Get a Grip (i know technically the 2nd track…)Posted 7 years agoboxelderSubscriber
]The second track is normally 'the one'
Blurs Song 2 being a classic

Woe to You Oh Earth and Sea
for the Devil sends the beast with wrath
because he knows the time is short
Let him who hath understanding
reckon the number of the beast
for it is a human number
its number is six hundred and sixty six
Good track, but not the opening one from that album, that honour goes to Invaders I believePosted 7 years agoReluctantMember
Snow White Diner on the Handsome Family album "Twilight" always grabs my attention. Songs written in the present tense and first person always put you right there and that's quality narration.Posted 7 years ago
Boxelder has a point with Grandaddy too – what a band they were!
Since the split, Jason's solo album was disappointing, but the new Admiral Radley album is worth every penny.
