Default Re: IT's time for a QUESTION:Fave track leading off an album??

I haven't been around for a while, but I'll chime in. I really like the question. I didn't have to think very long to say that for me it is 10 Degrees and Getting Colder. I think that the entire flow of Summer Side was perfect and that song was an ideal beginning.

For those of us old enough to remember most if not all of these on LP's, the song that opened the second side also enters the equation. For example, for my tastes, Bend in the Water never has flowed well into Rainy People. I love both songs, that transition just doesn't work for me. However, on the second side, A Tree too Weak to Stand transitioned beautifully into All the Lovely Ladies and through the whole second side. With CD's and now digital music formats, it's hard to remember the days where the two sided of an album were kind of like a first and second set.
