I know it's obviously not from our scene, but "Thunder Road" is my favorite song ever and therefore is my favorite album opener ever.

That's Stuck Between Stations for me. God damn, what a perfect song.

Great selections. I'd have to think more carefully about it, but Zack picked basically all of my favorite openers.

this is a great list... especially the inclusion of Lydia, TPS, and TWY. But, this is me you're talking to, so I have to say that this list feels incomplete without "Ever So Sweet."

also, "Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes"> "Tell That Mick"
