OK, a lot of songs can be identified just by hearing the first note, chord, sound or series of notes in the first second of the song. Can you name one? I'll name the first, its an easy one.

Bennie and the Jetts- Elton John.

Anybody else?

Talk about a coincidence! Just as I clicked on this thread a song came on the radio in my office that fits the bill, for me at least.

And the hits just keep on coming.    8)

Radar Love - Golden Earring.  One of the best songs ever!


Fast forward to 4:20 (coincidence?) for an incredible drum solo!

I Feel Fine- The Beatles

Freezeframe-J. Geils Band

Joy to the World- Three Dog Night

Remember, the first sound, not series of sounds or notes, the very first sound or chord you hear.
