    Best & Worst Lines from songs

    These can be terrible lines from terrible songs or terrible lines ruining a good song.
    To kick off:
    "How can you lie there and think of England when you don't even know who's in the team"
    Billy Bragg - Greetings from the new brunette

    "Feeling twenty-two, acting seventeen" aghhhhh! that stupid easy listening crumpet for middle aged men Katie Melua.

    If we could preclude Travis & Dido from the worst ones otherwise we'll be here all day

    Re: Best & Worst Lines from songs

    I think Eminem has come quality lyrics...

    "My brain's dead weight, I'm tryin to get my head straight
    but I can't figure out which Spice Girl I want to impregnate.."

    But the winners, surely, are GLC. Everything they do is genius.

    I am a robot, I am a robot !!!!

    Worst line from a song has to go to the Crazy Frog!

    Re: Best & Worst Lines from songs

    u2 have some cracking examples. ones that spring to mind now are playboy mansion, numb and kite, in all three cases when you see the lyrics written down they look somewhat odd. but when you hear the songs they fit perfectly in place. genius

    Re: Best & Worst Lines from songs

    How about Roger Waters (not sure of the song title):

    "My least favourite, favourite fish is Sole - You don't have to see the eyes"

    WTF?

    joost, i know that...... radio chaos.....

    I don't like fish. Marine fish
    I don't like fish
    "dock ... oh time... is turning ... the party's over but you are not"
    You are listening to KAOS here in Los Angeles
    I don't like fish
    Yes, we've established that
    Ah! Do you have a request?
    Shellfish, guppy, salmon, shrimp and crab
    and lobster, flounder.I hate fish, but I think most of all
    I hate fresh fish, like trout
    I hate fresh trout.
    My least-hated, favourite fish would be sole.
    That way you don't have to see the eyes
    Sole has no eyes

    Oh no!

    I'd like to be home with my monkey and my dog......



    sheer class.

    Re: Best & Worst Lines from songs

    i could quote roger waters all day long mate...

    perfect sense pt1.- the flickering flame

    ......And the Germans killed the Jews
    And the Jews killed the Arabs
    And the Arabs killed the hostages
    And that is the news
    And is it any wonder that the monkey's confused
    He said Mama Mama the President's a fool
    Why do I have to keep reading these technical manuals
    And the Joint Chiefs of Staff
    And the brokers on Wall Street said
    Don't make us laugh you're a smart kid
    Time is linear Memory is a stranger
    History's for fools
    Man is a tool in the hands of the great God almighty
    And they gave him command of a nuclear submarine
    And sent him back in search of the Garden of Eden

    Thats it! Was doing my nut trying to remember the song.

    Wasn't far off with the lyrics....

    Never managed to work out what the hell he was going on about though - obviously not consumed enough mind altering paraphernalia (not that I'm going to admit to anyway!). Quality track though.

    Re: Best & Worst Lines from songs

    Basically anything from Radiohead "the bends" (i.e. before they went mental)
    Bulletproof's a favorite suicidal track

    limb by limb & tooth by tooth
    tearing up inside of me
    everyday every hour,
    wish that I was bulletproof
    wax me mould me
    heat the pins and stab them in
    you have turned me into this
    wish that I was bulletproof
    so pay me money & take a shot
    lead fill the holes in me
    I could burst a million bubbles
    wish that I was bulletproof

    Although to be fair you probably have to be going through a pretty rough time to really appreciate it.
