John Roling just tagged me to post my top 5 side 1, track 1 songs. Like he said in the blog, there are probably a lot of people who wonder what the hell side 1 refers to, and wonder if maybe there are dual-sided CD’s like there are DVD’s. (On the flip side of that, I wonder how many people think of LP’s when they hear side 1, rather than cassettes.)
Here’s my list. I’m stealing John’s first two because I agree. I can dig on his “Head Like a Hole” nomination, but I don’t know it’s in my top 5.
“Welcome to the Jungle” – Guns ‘n’ Roses, Appetite for Destruction
“Hotel California” – Eagles, Hotel California
“Cowboys from Hell” – Pantera, Cowboys from Hell
“Walk Away” – Dropkick Murphys, Blackout
“Sympathy for the Devil”- Rolling Stones, Beggars Banquet
Man, it’s tough to come up with 5 favorites that are on side 1 track 1. Had to wrack my brain a bit. I almost listed “Dr. Feelgood” from the Motley Crue album of the same name because it was one of the first albums I bought (that should give you an idea of my age), but technically it’s track 2.
The next question — who to tag? I’ll start with Brian and Nate, because I know they’re music nuts. Then Cullen because I know very little about his music tastes. Then I’ll finish it off with John Urbancik and Weston Ochse because they have different tastes in music.
