Favourite non-U2 album openers and closers?

I think this is hard: Which album-openers are the best ones? We had U2 openers and closers some days ago, now I'm looking for non-U2.

Radiohead: Everything in its right place (the first secounds show what the album is like)
Travis: Sing (how beautiful!)
Beck: Devil's haircut (kickin' ass)
Grandaddy: He's simple, he's dumb, he's the pilot (9 minutes, far away)
R.E.M.: Drive (best song on Automatic, IMO)

I know, I forgot Enter Sandman and Bitter Sweet Symphony.

Nirvana: Something in the way (fantastic acoustic song)
Air: Le voyage de Penelope (very good instrumental)
Oasis: Champagne Supernova (Brilliant. Undescribable.)
Portishead: Glory Box (good bass-line)
Pulp: Sunrise (unbelievable guitars!)

Take the money and run

The best opener and closer to an album I've heard is Thunder Road top open Springsteen's Born To Run album and Jungleland to close it.

I was wondering if anyone else noticed that. It's a brilliant song, by the way.
