I had a bit of a soul fest via Spotify today at work, and this song is so soulful, I think it could be the best opening note/word of a song:



I feel another playlist on Spotify coming on called 'Songs with the best opening note/word' to go with the one you helped me with previously.

Just the first note? Or do you mean intro?
It certainly is one of the greatest songs of all time and one of my personal favourites.


Now no version will ever top Sam's... it is incredible.
But this cover by TTD is very good, If you like the original song you may like this version too.
It builds and builds into something amazing.

Thank you for sharing, even though I am 23 and Sam Cooke was way before my time, I LOVE this song, and Sam Cooke in general.

Now for the last hour I will be humming this song until I can get to my car and turn on Spotify.

Credit to you sir.

Maybe I should have put opening bars in the heading instead...

I forgot about the string intro on the Sam Cooke song, as the vocal just hits you...

The intro was not as good, but definitely the emotion is there.

I like how it lilted along, and then bam, big chord and TTD just belted it out with so much soul.

Sam Cooke's voice is like syrup. TTD is more rough and raspy.

NonSpecific is too busy embroiled in his pseudo intellectual political election discussions at the moment, even though he is YouTubing videos as we speak.

"I am far too busy for your music thread nonsense dear!.... No wait, what about this one?"

His suggestion is this:

Otis Redding's version. Very good, too.

This is my fave Otis Reading song



and not a bad intro but I don't think it quite cuts the mustard

I still think this could be a contender...

It's all subjective, but The Beatles Hard Days Night is iconic.

The wannabe guitarist's most splendiferous favourite intro is this:-

Nonspecific just found this and for the 'syrup factor' (soon to be trademarked in regards to classifying music)



for direct comparison to the Sam Cooke one..

What do you think?

I love this song, but my step son is learning guitar... and the song he is learning...Smoke on the water. And he will just sit there on the computer, or just minding his own business in the back of the car and start humming it over and over.

Now, I just think about the Monkey when I hear it.

Non-'I am not participating in your post''- Specific

Has just found these three, going a bit rocky now, but they just stir something primal.
