I saw the topic about Queen's best album opener...now besides Queen...what album has the best opener?

I say "Funeral For A Friend/ Love Lies Bleeding" on the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John...

What do you think?

Cheers

Hell yeah! Also, "The River Of Dreams" has a great opening song.

By the way, ChinesedogTorture, your signature is from my favorite song on "52nd Street". Good choice!

Thanks! I love that song, specially that part that begins, "When the sun goes down
And the day is over..." It's just so full of emotion. :)

'Shine On Your Crazy Diamond'

I think Alice Cooper's "Welcome to My Nightmare."

Tie Your Mother Down, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Welcome To The Jungle, Black Dog, Hello, Cherub Rock, Where The Streets Have No Name...and I'm loving Pope John Paul from the Lovely Feathers is one of the best openers I've heard lately.

Yay! That was my topic and folk remember it!
Um, I would say 'The Fallen' by Franz Ferdinand, or 'London Calling' by The Clash.


This can't end well.

This won't count because it's actually the *last* song on the album... but "Under a Raging Moon" by Roger Daltrey kicks arse. Hahah. Does that make it 'best album closer'??
