What's your favorite lyric from a song?


Just curious what stays with people...

"Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear, and when I do,
it's usually something unusual"

Well I'm up and gone at the break of damn 

working like a regular dog

to keep my woman and the lights and the water and the phone turned on. 
 

DAC: time off for bad behavior. DAC said this was the coolest thing he ever written and I agree 

@brunomarcs 

Sorry, but who's DAC? If that's the most brilliant thing he ever wrote, I'm glad that I missed the rest. How many hundreds of songs have that same theme? It's a country music staple.

When you believe in things that you don't understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition ain't the way.

-and-

Although your mind's opaque
Try thinking more if just for your own sake.

(First by Stevie Wonder, second by the Beatles)

Never heard another lyric with the word "opaque"

Now that I think of it, they are good advice for audiophiles!

 

Alifib by Robert Wyatt

 

No nit not
Nit no not
Nit nit folly bololey
Alife my larder
Alife my larder

 


I read that the snooker player Steve Davis recommended that Rock Bottom was album was everyone should listen to, and he wasn't the only one, so eventually I did.

Once heard, you'll know why it's called Rock Bottom.
