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.

Openers:
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.

Closers:
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!)

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