    Welcome back the “On That Note,” CF’s weekly showcase for music listening & discourse, hosted by @MeanDean, @CycloneRulzzz and me, cyclones500. I’ll be your host this week.

    In this segment, we consider songs that open with singing — no other instruments accompany the vocal at the start of the tune.

    The following are NOT acceptable:
    (1) Spoken-word intros don’t count --- it has to be SUNG (We already did Talking here).
    (1b) by extension, count-ins (unless the counting is truly sung).
    (2) songs that are completely a-capella (that would be cheating!).

    Two versions of "Hound Dog"

    Elvis



    Big Mama Thornton original (more of a “wail” but I'm gonna say it qualifies)

    The Eagles live version has a little guitar strum before the vocals start so didn't want to use that. Instead I found this version.
