As much as I love Hungry Freaks Daddy, I voted for Are You Hung Up primarily because it's such a perfect opener for WOIIFTM, by far my favorite MOI album. Kind of a silly reason to vote for it but I digress.

I voted for Uncle Meat because I like it as an opener better than the other ones.

What kind of a silly reason is that?

I chose "Hungary Freaks Daddy", because I enjoy those foreign newspaper headlines. Where the hell is Daddy situated, anyway?

More than you know. :wink: That's why I put a totally silly reason, after claiming Cal's was silly.

I chose "Plastic People". It really sets up the rest of the album well, and it's microwave safe.

Considering which opening is my "favorite", rather "the best", I like 'em all, but I'm gonna have to go with the powerful Hungry Freaks, Daddy. 8)

Hungry Freaks, Daddy! There's nothing like the perfect announcement of the Mothers' arrival way back in 1966!

WPLJ.

I love the way those bass notes rumble through my body.

WPLJ is my second choice, but just barely. I do fucking love me some Cheap Thrills though. Such an awesome, underrated album.

My vote for Uncle Meat. Didja Get Any Onja would have been a great option too.
