10) This is the opening line of Jay McInerney's Bright Lights, Big City: "You are not the kind of guy who would be in a place like this at this time of the morning." Think about that line in the context of the novel (assuming you've read it). Now go to your CD collection and find Heart's Little Queen album (assuming you own it). Listen to the opening riff to "Barracuda."

Which of these two introductions is a higher form of art?

This is a stupid question. It assume you have intimate knowledge of both items being compared here....and I'd argue that most people don't know enough about both or either to fully answer this question. So for me...that opening line seems pretty ambiguous, while the opening riff of "Barracuda" is freaking sweet and I can play it on Guitar Hero 3, so it wins by a landslide...twice.
