What are some of your favorite lines in a song?
My first offering:
Wait a minute, mister, I didn't even kiss her.
Might be a couple of reasons I missed it. I usually like more folk rock, and snappy rock & roll music. Then, after the 60s, when I stopped dating, I stopped listening to the radio, so I missed a lot of music from the 70s on.
Geez, you must have missed my Mairsy Doats contribution! Not very thoughtful or introspective, I would think. However, I was trying to make a point of words, misunderstood, misinterpreted, and crazy making in political life.
Sorry I didn't catch the political life word point, but you did get me singing it for a day.
Me, too, Spud. I couldn't get the tune out of my head.
Yes, it's one of those tunes that is so catchy, I'm singing it for a day or more. So far it's been 2 days. More than a few hours and it becomes annoying.
Damned few musical statements I've ever heard have quite the same power or eloquence that Rickie Lee Jones finds with "Gravity:"
And near the close, there's that desperate reach for identity and relevance in the words:
I try to imagine another planet, another sun
Where I don't look like me
And everything I do matters...
I. Mean. Wow.
I like that line Bertold.
