Episode 22 – Track One, Side One (Artwork – D. Hixon)

High Fidelity is the obvious inspiration for this episode, and it poses one of my favorite music questions.

What are the best opening tracks of all time?

That’s a hard question to answer , and because of this, I didn’t try to answer fully. That said, these tracks are certainly in the discussion with me.

1. High Fidelity
2. The Velvet Underground – White Light/White Heat (White Light/White Heat – 1967)
3.  Iggy and the Stooges – Search and Destroy (Raw Power – 1973)
4. The Pixies – Debaser (Doolittle – 1989)
5. The Beatles – Magical Mystery Tour (Magical Mystery Tour – 1967)
6. Guided By Voices – A Salty Tribute (Alien Lanes – 1995)
7.  The National – Fake Empire (Boxer – 2007)
8. The Replacements – Talent Show (Don’t Tell A Soul – 1989)
