I was just on Planet Rock, and they're asking what people's favorite opening songs on albums are. One I came up with was Kiss - Detroit Rock City. What is everyone else's favorite opening song? Since this is an Allmans site, another great one is Statesboro Blues from the Fillmore album.

Love this question. Asked my iTunes using cousin it when we went to see Tom Petty and he said had no idea as he never listened to albums.

Anyway...

Counting Crows - Round Here

This is a great topic. I scrolled around through my iTunes I'll throw out all these instead of trying to make a shorter list:

"Statesboro Blues" - no explanation needed.
"Planet Claire" - B-52s, The B-52s
The Band: "Across the Great Divide" (The Band, even though it starts with the worst lyric on the album) and "Don't Do It" from Rock of Ages
"Rhymin' and Stealin'" - Beastie Boys, License to Ill
The Beatles - "Come Together" from Abbey Road, "Taxman" from Revolver, and "A Hard Day's Night" for that first chord if not for the entire song
"Uncomplicated" - Elvis Costello, Blood and Chocolate
Frank Zappa - "Peaches en Regalia," Hot Rats
Dr. John - "Right Place, Wrong Time" from In the Right Place
Funkadelic - "Maggot Brain" (Maggot Brain)
Gov't Mule - "Grinnin' in Your Face" > "Mother Earth" (Gov't Mule), "Wandering Child" (Life Before Insanity
Grateful Dead - "Box of Rain," American Beauty
Gregg Allman - "Midnight Rider," Laid Back
Howlin' Wolf - "Moanin' at Midnight," Moanin' in the Moonlight
Jimi Hendrix - "Purple Haze." Is this the most iconic track one ever? It might be.
John Coltrane - "Blue Train," Blue Train. Also "Giant Steps" and "My Favorite Things" from the albums of those names, "Afro Blue" from the Birdland album, and the first part of "A Love Supreme" if it's not cheating to use a suite. Really dominant in this category.
Johnny Cash - "Folsom Prison Blues" from At Folsom Prison. See also Hendrix.
Johnny Jenkins - "I Walk on Gilded Splinters" from Ton-Ton Macoute. If we were doing best closing tracks I'd nominate the original.
Max Roach - "Garvey's Ghost," Percussion Bitter Sweet
Miles Davis - "So What," Kind of Blue
Neil Young - "Cinnamon Girl," Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Nirvana - "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Nevermind. It's not the best song on the album and maybe it seems like a cliche now, but when this thing was new, wow.
Radiohead - "Airbag" from OK Computer, "Pakt Like Sardines" from Amnesiac, "15 Step" from In Rainbows
Rolling Stones - "Sympathy for the Devil," Beggars Banquet
Sonny Rollins - "St. Thomas," Saxophone Colossus
Taj Mahal - "Leavin' Trunk," Taj Mahal
Talking Heads - "I Zimbra," Fear of Music, "Born Under Punches" (Remain in Light)
Tom Petty has a bunch. "Refugee," Into the Great Wide Open," "Saving Grace," "Jefferson Jericho Blues," list goes on.
White Stripes - "Seven Nation Army," Elephant

"So What" from Kind of Blue is my first choice, but for rock music I'd say "Peaches En Regalia" from Zappa's Hot Rats.

*edit - Marley, I swear I didn't see your post. Weird.

great call on So What, one of the best jazz tunes written.
I wasn't thinking of jazz, but clearly that and the Coltrane tunes Marley mentioned would make my list

Quadrant 4 (Billy Cobham Spectrum) for fusion

Rocks Off kicks off Exile on Main Street in fine fashion.

The Grind is the powerful opener on the Teaser album by Tommy Bolin.

I am partial to Dance With the Moonlit Knight and Dance on a Volcano for Genesis openers.

How about Shapes of Things to kick off Truth by the Jeff Beck Group?

Good one.

Not my favorite tune, but I always liked how "Can't Get Enough" kicks off Bad Company's 1st album.

After DWYNM and Statesboro, I'd throw out ther Runnin' with the Devil off VH1.

I agree with Pretending off EC's Journey Man album and Good Times Bad Times off Zep1. Excellent choices.
