What's your favorite lyric from a song?

Just curious what stays with people...

Brand New, Science Fiction ‐ A fantastic concept effort. IMHO, the entire CD contains some of the best lyrics I've heard. From "Logic\Teeth" 

"...But you're no tailor, you're no surgeon, none of your cuts go very straight
Every new layer you uncover reveals something else you hate
And then you cracked your head, and broke some bones
And when you glued them back together you found out you did it wrong..."


If you're feeling low, really low, and this can happen to any of us for whatever reason, there aren't too many songs as good as expressing a total sense of desolation as this one.


Inspiral Carpets - This is How it Feels


There's a funeral in the town

Some guy from the top estate

Seems they found him under a train

And yet he had it all on a plate  


So this is how it feels to be lonely

This is how it feels to be small

This is how it feels

When your word means nothing at all



@cd318 - Holy cow - another fan of Inspiral Carpets! 'This Is How It Feels' is one of my favorites of their's (beautiful melody, too), along with the 'Revenge of the Goldfish' album....


It was actually my sister that used to play them back in the 90s.

She was then, and would probably like to think she still is now, an Indie kid.

That was the time I’d hear her playing the Stone Roses, House of Love, the Wedding Present etc before she fell in love with Kurt Cobain and then got into Metallica and System of a Down.

More recently she’s in with a London crowd that likes to model their dance scene on the 1970s work of the likes of David Mancuso, and all that entails.


Anyway, I’ll check out the ’Revenge of the Goldfish’ album. It’s always nice to have a real world recommendation.

Any band that can produce a song as strong as ’This is How it Feels’ is worth checking out.

@cd318 - I'm 70 years old, and when it comes to music, I'm indie and post-punk kid all the way, with a good dose of reggae and metal - age ain't nuthin' but a number! I remember when those bands you mention were really popular in the early 90's; I've even seen The Wedding Present a few times!
