When We Were Young - Adele- [youtu.be]
That first piano note totally grabs me. Rest of the song is tremendous.

None, of the top of my head with one note.

But with a few simultaneous 'one note' notes played, there are many, but Tales of Brave Ulysses at the top.




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Ednaswap "Torn" comes to mind immediately.

How about drum intro: KISS "I Wanna Rock & Roll All Night"?

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

The Day Begins, Moody Blues' first song on Days of Future Past

[www.youtube.com]

Not so much for that cut alone, which actually is background for the spoken work intro, but as an introduction to the entire album as a cohesive work.

No sleep 'til Brooklyn - [www.youtube.com]

Although it starts off with a few words then the guitar intro, I think it would hit just as hard without any lyrics.
