Sunday First Song Blogging

Schubert's Wintereisse begins with this song, "Gute Nacht," and only gets better from there:



The Silver Jews began Bright Flight with "Slow Education":



Stereolab began Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night with "Fuses" but they won't allow it to be embedded. Sonic Youth started A Thousand Leaves with "Contre Le Sexisme," which succeeds at setting a tone but not at much else.

Neko Case has a knack for opening songs -- "Things That Scare Me" is the first track on Blacklisted:



Here's a strong opening to a strong album -- "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" on the Postal Service's Give Up:



Abbey Road began with "Come Together," one of many desert island songs made by The Beatles:



"Is This What You Wanted" started Leonard Cohen's New Skin for the Old Ceremony:



And so on.
