Re: Favourite Song with a Spoken Word Intro

From the list: MC5

Other: Springsteen - Candy's Room

There's a song by Bruce Cockburn, can't recall the title now, but I got a kick out of the spoken intro; something like "I woke up thinking about Turkish drummers. It didn't take long, I don't know much about Turkish drummers."

"Get Up, Johah"

Cockburn has a ton of 'em, now that I think about it.

Re: Favourite Song with a Spoken Word Intro

Off the list ... Mudhoney's In 'N Out Of Grace, the spoken word intro is taken from the movie Wild Angels

We want to be free! We want to be free to do what we want to do! We want to be free to ride. And we want to be free to ride our machines without being hassled by The Man. And we want to get loaded. And we want to have a good time! And that's what we're gonna do. We're gonna have a good time. We're gonna have a party!

'Let's Go Crazy' from the list, and yes, sometimes a spoken part can be pretty cool
