Favourite spoken part/narration/sound effect in a song?
I was thinking about this today and it came to me that one of the ones I like would be just a little less without the effect. It's Floyd, from "The Wall", that bit just before "Comfortably numb" as "Bring the boys back home" fades out when you hear the knocking on the door as a stagehand calls "Time to go!" I really think that always links in with "Comfortably numb" for me. I'm sure there are others, though the only one that comes to mind for me at the moment is the radio intro to "Forgotten sons" by Marillion.

Anyone else?

A lot of good ones in psytrance

"Everyone knows, fun rules" @4:15, plus the Waking Life quote.

Terrence Mckenna's DMT description.

There's a lot

"Food Processors are GREAT!" - the opening to "Advert" - Blur, Modern Life Is Rubbish

The spoken word bit on Nick Cave and the Bad Seed's "Loverman"

The spoken word bit that ends with "My name is Sue, how do you do, NOW YOU'RE GONNA DIE!!!" (cue Prisoners cheering) - Johnny Cash, "A Boy Named Sue"

"I SAW 'YA!" - Pete Townshend to Keith Moon at the end of "Happy Jack"

The interview answers through Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon which enhance the songs.

"Ho ho ho - He He He - HA HA HA!!!" and the radio playing a presentation of "King Lear" at the end - "I Am the Walrus", The Beatles

Interesting topic, Trollheart! From Pink Floyd, stuck in my head because I like them so much are "Look, Mummy! There´s an airplane up in the sky!" and all the "Scrambled-egg and bacon" bits on Alan´s Psychedelic Breakfast.

^ Hey, that´s really nice, Miss P! When it comes to bits of counting in songs my favourites are probably Roxy Music´s lead-in to "In The Midnight Hour" and Manfred Mann´s, "Angels At My Gate",( although that´s sung and probably doesn´t count, haha.) But what your clip immeiately reminded me of was this, which I can´t quote without thanking Freebase Dali, who introduced it to me via one of his monthly compilations:-

But when it comes to spoken word, it was of course Beefheart who turned it into an art form -oh, wait a minute, it was already. Anyway, Golden Birdies and the four spoken-word tracks on Trout Mask are among my all-time favs.

As the Stars Fall's Tempus Fugit featured a lot of really interesting samples.

This one reminds me of the 90s for some reason. I love it.

And here's 2 DSBM songs that sample the film Closer.

Cog do a lot of narration and spoken parts in their songs. I particularly like this one (intro).
