Most impressively sung single line of lyrics

Reggie Watts, “Song about Apples”, when he sings “Hey baby, I like the way that you smile at me”

About the 5 minute mark: Reggie Watts - A Song About Apples (Always Love Yourself) - YouTube

The whole song is fantastic, but that part is particularly special.

Whitney Houston, “Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii will always love yooooooooouuuuu”, “The Bodyguard” - 1992

“Hello” by Evanescence. The final lines of the song are hauntingly and beautifully sung.

“Suddenly, I know I’m not sleeping. Hello, I’m still here, all that’s left of yesterday.”

I’ve always liked Dylan’s opening to Hurricane: “Pistol shots rang out in the barroom night…” Jumps out right at you out of nowhere, exactly like a pistol shot would.

Special mention to Lindsey Buckingham for “Holiday Roe oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ode”

Grace Slick singing Silver Spoon:

Where are the bodies
For dinner?
I want my food!

For the chill it brings, Emmylou singing in Boulder to Birmingham

The last time I felt like this
I was in the wilderness and the canyon was on fire

“Rape, murder, it’s just a shot away”

Janis Joplin’s Booby McGee but not the line that everyone quotes - “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose” but the heartrending “I’d trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday” Never has the pain of lost love been so eloquently expressed.

Ok - it’s a verse, not a line, but it’s sung so damn quickly and synced up…
Frank Zappa and co.
And booger bears.

Inca Roads

Did a booger-bear
Come from somewhere out there
Did a booger-bear
Come from somewhere out there
Did the Indians, first on the bill
Carve up her hill?
