Best album opening/closing track - Page 3

post #31 of 45
Sgt. Pepper/With A Little Help From My Friends - Sgt. Pepper (reprise)/A Day In The Life

Okay, so technically that's 4 songs...
post #32 of 45
Oh this is an easy one.

Arcade Fire's Funeral for BOTH

Opening: Arcade Fire- Neighborhood #1
Closing: Arcade Fire- In the Backseat

Start Epic. End epic.

351Cleveland you choose those four? Or are you saying they are out of the running because they run together?
post #34 of 45
^ Yes, I choose those 4. To me, they are 2 songs because they run together and are never heard individually, even if they are listed in the TOC as separate songs.

And I would like to add Speak To Me/Breathe - Brain Damage/Eclipse to my list.

My collection is a bit light on albums that aren't compilations so I had a bit of trouble coming up with something not posted already...

Sting, The Dream of Blue Turtles
If You Love Somebody Set Them Free / Fortress Around Your Heart

Rodrigo y Gabriela (self-titled)
Tamucan/PPA

+1 for Kind of Blue, Aja and Sgt. Peppers

I have good memories of the first song(If You love Somebody...). Spent a lot of time riding my bike and hearing it many times on the portable radio clipped to my belt in 85 or so.-That and Paul Hardcastle's Nine-nine-nineteen- I think I'll look up Dream of the Blue Turtles. Thanx for that.

+1 for each part of "Shine on You Crazy Diamond."

Also, for some reason Planet Telex/Street Spirit (fade out) come to mind from the underrated "The Bends."

Obviously not a prominent genre in these forums - but Aquarius/Wildlife Analysis off of "Music Has the Right to Children" by Boards of Canada are both such good ending and beginning songs for the album's feel. Such a great album...


Also, Procession/My Song off Every Good Boy Deserves Favour by The Moody Blues have always stood out to me.

did anyone mention:

AC/DC-Black in Black- Hells Bells/Rock n Roll Aint Noise Pollution
post #41 of 45
A lot of the greats have already been mentioned, but the one that made me go "oh yeahhhh" most enthusiastically was King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King.

I would like to submit :

Beck's Mellow Gold - Loser, Blackhole

Neil Young's After the Gold Rush - Tell Me Why, Cripple Creek Fairy

New York Dolls - Personality Crisis, Jet Boy

Pixies' Doolittle - Debaser, Gouge Away, and on that note, Surfer Rosa - Bone Machine, Brick is Red (I really love this song, don't understand why it isn't more popular)

Ramones - Blitzkrieg Bop, Today Your Love Tomorrow the World

T-Rex's Electric Warrior - Mambo Sun, Rip Off

Some that I really like that I didn't notice mentioned.

I'm going to say Octahedron by The Mars Volta. Since We've Been Wrong and Luciforms are phenomenal.
