Songs that begin with: And

Many years ago, I came upon a list of songs that begin with the word and. It was a very short list. The ones I remember:
[ul][li]Mrs. Robinson by Simon and Garfunkel: “And here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson…”[/li][li]Closer to the Heart by Rush: “And the men who hold high places…”[/li][li]Once in a Lifetime by The Talking Heads: “And you may find yourself…”[/ul][/li]What others are there?

And justice for all, by Metallica

The End by The Beatles: “And in the end, the love you take…”

What about song titles?
“And I Love Her” - The Beatles
“And We Danced” - The Hooters

Just to pick a nit, the actual first line is “Love you, the end”. That’s repeated a few times right before Paul, George and John do the guitar bits.

Another Talking Heads song, with the song title starting with “And” as well as the lyrics:

“And She Was” starts out “And she was lying in the grass…”

…And Through The Wire
by Peter Gabriel

“And if I say to you, tomorrow…”
- Led Zep, What Is & What Should Never Be

Not according to the lyric sheets I have - remember the song is connected to…damn, what song IS it connected to? (Dang I’m getting old.)

(And welcome to the boards!)

And speaking of old:

“And The Day Begins” - Engelbert Humperdinck
“And I Love You So” - Engelbert Humperdinck

(They’re from my mom’s record collection! I swear it!)

“And So It Goes” - Billy Joel I think…

OK, this one I got, “Carry That Weight” leads right into “The End”, but I still screwed up. The real and true first line is “Oh yeah, all right, are you gonna be in my dreams tonight”. This is right before the drum solo.

Or at least I’m sure they sing those words, and I always thought that’s where “The End” started. I can’t remember the last time I listened to “The End” without listening to pretty much the whole album side, so maybe those lyrics are technically part of the previous cut.

And oddly enough, I do remember seeing lyrics for the entire Abbey Road album before that didn’t show “love you, the end” as part of ANY song, but I swear they do sing that at some point on the album!

Thanks! I decided it was time to de-lurk. That would probably have been more effective if I hadn’t screwed up…

“And you know it’s time to go…” - U2, “A Sort of Homecoming”

“And if you were here…” If You Were Here by the Thompson Twins.

Moxy Fruvous: The Drinking Song
“And the band played on/ as the helicopters whirred…”

I can’t believe no one’s said:

“And now, the end is here
And so I face the final curtain…”

  • My Way, Frank Sinatra et al.

I realize this thread’s about songs that begin with ‘And’, but it seemed silly to start a whole 'nother thread to mention what I’ve always thought of as Best Use of a Conjunction in a Rock Song.

put the load right on me.”

The Band, “The Weight,” of course.

If I remember any songs that begin with ‘And’, I’ll be sure to bring them by. :slight_smile:
