Re: Favourite Song with a Spoken Word Intro

Not on the list, probably because the whole song is spoken, but my favorite of the genre is "Pressed Rat and Warthog" by Cream, with "Vocals" by Ginger Baker. What a great track!

Re: Favourite Song with a Spoken Word Intro

El Maño En Blacko or something. "The Man Comes Around" is one hell of a song to me

Re: Favourite Song with a Spoken Word Intro

Tom Petty! But I feel I must mention "Nights In White Satin" as my favorite song with spoken words, even if they aren't in the intro.
