Quick! Think of a song lyric! Now post what it was.

For me it’s a Laurie Anderson song, and the lyric is:

“He was an ugly guy
with an ugly face
an also-ran
in the human race”

Two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year.

The best song line ever from Pink Floyd Comfortably Numb.

It’s more than a feeling
(More than a feeling)
When I hear that old song they used to play
(More than a feeling)
I begin dreaming
(More than a feeling)
‘Til I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walkin’ away

Isn’t that from Wish You Were Here?

The one stuck in my head at the moment is:

There were 87 Advil in the bottle, now there’s 30 left.
I ate 47 so what happened to the other 10?
Why do you suspiciously change the subject and break my concentration
As I dump the bottle out and I count the Advil up again?

Even through the darkest phase
Be it thick or thin
Always someone marches brave
Here beneath my skin

kd lang…Constant Craving

But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
everybody’s gonna jump for joy

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

I see the world through your eyes
I taste lemon on my lips
I marvel at the sailing-ships
Of well-dressed girls and boys
'Cause life
has infinite, infinite joys

'cause you know something is happening
but you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mr. Jones?

You got to know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run

SoCal is where my mind states
But it’s not my state of mind

*knock three times on the ceiling if you want me
twice on the pipe if the answer is no
oh my sweetness

means you’ll meet me in the hallway
twice on the pipe means you ain’t gonna show*

It must have been on the radio as I was waking up. It’s gonna be stuck in my head for three days. Kill me now. :smack:

Sorry, I can’t – listening to an instrumental CD right now. (Regina Carter, jazz, etc., violinist)

“I rode a tank, with a General’s rank,
when the blitzkreig raged and the bodies stank…”

“I guess, we just couldn’t stand the weather.”

But every time it rains
You’re here in my head
Like the sun coming out
I just know something good is going to happen

You could have done anything
If you’d wanted
And all your friends and family
Think that you’re lucky
But the side of you they never see
Is when you’re left alone with the memory
That holds your life
Like glue.

Let’s all celebrate and have a good time

'Cause I’m Slim Shady, yes I’m the real Shady
All you other Slim Shadys are just imitating
So won’t the real Slim Shady please stand up,
please stand up, please stand up?

But it was not your fault but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really fucked it up this time
Didn’t I, my dear?
