That harmonica-imitating-train sound seems to be a blues staple.

Denis, listen to the rhythm instruments at the beginning. A train is more than just the woo-woo.

Sorry to have slowed things up with my apparently confusing guidelines on this one. I've always loved songs where the rhythm is like a train. There are literally thousands of them out there. Some bands do it with just the drums, and others add in a bass, and sometimes you'll even get the woo-woo to punctuate it. Listen for it, and I think you'll begin to hear it everywhere. To me, it's one of the great musical cliches. I discovered it when I saw a live performance of "Take the A Train," which has both the chugga-chugga and the woo-woo. Wynton Marsalis describes it much better than I do.

I have no use for the rest of the album, anyways!

This would be easier if it was songs that should have been first, like "Hey".

Based on the number of responses, I guess the list is too hard.

Name a song that should have been the first song on its album:
1. "Show Me Mary" from Catherine Wheel's Chrome

3. "Hello?" from The Problem Children's The Future of the World Is Up To Us (album)

Here's a band nobody seems to know. This song ended the 'Top' Side of the album. They do say goodbye near the end of the song, but then someone chirps hello? again. You just can't have a song called Hello? and not use it at the start.

or just speed through the process...

5. Hot Child In The City - Nick Gilder (last song on side A, scratched the record up many times putting the needle down.)
6. Fools Gold - 'cause the rest of the album bites
7. Hey - Doolittle, wouldn't that be a friendly way to start an album
8. There goes my gun - Doolittle, same reason!

(sclemeel, schlemazel, hasenfeffer incorporated.)

10 Two To Tango - Oscar Peterson/Lester Young, The President Plays

Pres (I'm pretty sure) sings and a cheeky little bit, but it sounds like a throw away at the end of the album. It would have been an invitation to a party at the start. It's a fantastic record, by the way!
