Rocks Great "Opening Tracks"

Today on The List-I got out some of rocks all time great album starters.  You know, you got em home and dropped the needle from cut one...you were sucked in!  So here are my choices, and feel free to listen to the audio;

Gimme Shelter-Rolling Stones from Let it Bleed (hooray for Merrie Clayton)

Black Dog-Led Zeppelin from IV

Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding-Elton from Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (B. Taupin Audio) Bernie Taupin on Love Lies Bleeding

Like a Rolling Stone-Bob Dylan from Highway 61 Revisited (Bob on his early songs) Bob Dylan on writing his early songs

More Than a Feeling-Boston from their debut album in 1976

Thunder Road-Bruce Springsteen's first cut from Born to Run

Foxey Lady-Jimi Hendrix Experience from Are You Experienced (check out this Little Richard audio on Jimi...Hendrix used to play in his band) Jimi Hendrix-Little Richard on Jimi

Well, those songs all make a powerful introduction to the albums they front.  Fun Stuff!  What would make your list?
