10 Best Opening Album Tracks

9. The Stone Roses - I Wanna Be Adored


An important moment in Indie Rock history; the sound of what was to come in the British music scene. From the fantastic debut album of Manchester's The Stone Roses, I Wanna Be Adored is a great opener; it builds suspense and has an unforgettable opening bass line, that is beautiful in its subtle approach.

It's a definite slow-burner, with it taking nearly 2 minutes, nearly the midway point of the song, for singer Ian Brown to actually say anything. But he doesn't need to, as the psychedelic vibes from the band speak volumes. These band were a major influence for Oasis, so you could argue The Stone Roses were where Britpop began.

Considered by many to be one of the best indie records ever recorded, The Stone Roses' debut album, starts, arguably, with its best song.
