|What is the first song on the first Blue Oyster Cult album ("Blue Oyster Cult")?||Blue Oyster Cult
"Transmaniacon M. C.". "Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll" is later (track 8) of "Blue Oyster Cult", "See You in Black" is off the recent album "Heaven Forbid", and "White Flags" is the first track on the album "Club Ninja".
|The album "Tyranny and Mutation" is divided into two sides. What are the names of the two sides?||Blue Oyster Cult
The Red and the Black. The liner notes for "Tyranny and Mutation" say the Red "is more fully revved" and the "texture is crisper and brighter". In contrast, the Black has "more folk-rock melodies and glittery arpeggios" which suggest a "chill and ghostly and feminine" sound.
"Twilight Hotel". "Twilight Hotel" is by Quiet Riot. "Nosferatu" was off "Spectres", "She's as Beautiful As a Foot" came off the eponymous debut album, and "7 Screaming Diz-Busters" was on "Tyranny and Mutation". Isn't it a sign of artistry to write a song called "She's as Beutiful As a Foot" and have it actually be good?
