What's your favorite lyric from a song?

Just curious what stays with people...

@cd318 - I'm sorry to hear about Mike; I know how horrible losing your best friend is. 

Interesting that you tried to learn guitar and got as far as 'Jingle Bells' - I tried guitar and bass, but my hands just don't want to deal with fretted instruments, so now I'm teaching myself piano. Just finished 'Kumbaya' and am now on to 'London Bridge'.... 🤣

Well you gassed her up
And you're behind the wheel
With your arm around your sweet one
In your Oldsmobile
Barrellin' down the boulevard
You're lookin' for the heart of Saturday night


Tom Waits


Thanks for that. It's Mike's funeral this Wednesday.

No one is truly alone when it comes to bereavement, but it is mostly a solitary experience. I hope you found a way through it.


Anyway I did try piano myself for a while but my musical memory could barely remember where middle C was.

I soon gave up after hearing my sister practice. Somehow without any coaching she was soon playing recognisable tunes!

She soon gave it up though, as she wanted to play guitar and be in a band.

Alas for her she didn't have as much luck there.

People forget, but guitar can be tough on the fingers.

Here's a lyric that's been coming to mind recently. I kind of underappreciated it previously.


Ride on fine white stallion

Take me anywhere

Ride on fine white stallion

Where you me take I don't care 


Ride on fine white stallion

I'd go anywhere with you

Take me to a new world with new things to find

Help me leave the old world behind.

(Fine White Stallion - Mike Hazelwood)



Thunder Road Bruce Springsteen


"Well, I got this guitar, and I learned how to make it talk
And my car’s out back, if you’re ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat
The door’s open but the ride, it ain’t free"


Sometimes, no matter how carefully you plan things, you just have to make an instant decision.

It could be a life changing decision.
