I hope this is the best forum for this…and it's not too spammy.

Basically, name one line/bit of lyrics from a song (or several songs) that you find most memorable, fun, or just awesome…and explain why if you want.

I only have one right now….

Beck: Loser
“Gettin' crazy with the cheese whiz!”

XD I don't think I need to explain why.

Randy “Macho Man” Savage: Be a man



1. “Hollywood Hulkster you're at the end of your rope/And I'm a kick ya in the butt and wash your mouth out with sope.”

2. “You're sayin' sorry, but it's too late now/Cuz I dissed ya and dismissed ya like a bastard child.”

3. “So don't sleep I'm constantly droppin' a bomb/Like on ya CD-ROM it's MachoMan.com.”

4. “And we don't mind cuz they're lookin' lovely/They wanna chill cuz we're poppin' bubbly.”

He… he…

He raped my ears…

God said to me “I'm gonna kick your ass, 'cos all you do is ask, ask, ask …”

(Very!) old Ian Hunter song. Just called “God”, if I remember rightly. No idea why but it's been in my head a lot lately!

“Always the same, playing your game, drives me insane, trouble's gonna come to you!”

It rhymes, mostly… and it's such a groovy song. Led Zeppelin, Your Time Is Gonna Come. It's really a kind of jilted emo tirade, but it just sounds so relaxed and lovely that it turns that threat into a groovy statement about how un-groovy the person being threatened is.

“If you need me, me and Neil'll be hangin' out with the Dream King”
-Tori Amos, Tear in your Hand
I dunno… That sounds cool. I want to hang out with Neil and the Dream King too :)

Steal from the rich and I'm out robbing banks
Give to the poor and I always give thanks
Got more stories that J.D. got Salinger
I hold the title and you are the challenger
I've got money like Charles Dickens
Got the girlies in the Coupe like the Colonel's got the chickens
Always go out dapper like Harry S. Truman
I'm madder than Mad's Alfred E. Newman


From Shadrach by the Beastie Boys

Old School Rules!

Back when sampling was allowed!

sorry…can't just post one lyric from the Beasties!

Everywhere I go, I see your ghost
the spirit of '91.
You said you loved me more than toast,
but less than a staplegun.

"I AM THE GOD OF HELLFIRE! AND I BRING YOU…

Fire, by The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown. Best intro ever, especially since it's some kind of 60's groovy dance track. Much better than Ozzies's ”I AM IRON MAN".

Shouldn't that be… “Its a Kind of Magic”? I dunno… It's a great song though, from Highlander I think.

That is a really eerie song. I also like the last lines in Two Headed Boy Pt. 2

'Two headed boy,she is all you could need. She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires, and retire to sheets safe and clean. But don't hate her when she get's up to leave.'

Please, please, you give me too little credit.

I remember a real fave of mine:

"Shaving cream is thicker than it seems, shave ‘em off! Don’t ask what it means!"

-Tracy Bonham. I like it because it sounds a bit rude… and also strangely commanding :)

Heed “Enemy”

“If you're my enemy.
I'll set your destiny.
Repent your lies to me now.
In fierce I'll reap your soul.”

Heed “Nothing”

“No one can live life in loneliness,
Only stars in the sky far away…
In the void there's nothing to say or embrace.
Empty souls are lost deep in there.
Like astray in time and in space.”

Eternal Tears Of Sorrow “Autumn's Grief” (THE GREATEST BALLAD OF ALL TIME)

“Your look so full of passion..
As the night kisses your skin
You close your eyes and also let me
Feel our common will
This crimson stream will be the final step
On the path of our mortal lives
You know our love is real…and oh yeah, so do I…so do I”


Enjoy… Las Vegas-y

Beauty, talent, fame, money
Refinement, top skill and brain
But all the things you try to hide

I wanna take you to the last ride
then survive… till I get to the next side of the story
You can hear me… cmon…
sex and filth so why dont you kill me
everybodys out for the money I make you scream oh yeah…
Go and hit me…

I'm a sex freak one of a kind!!! I'm a sex freak one of a kind!!!

I did it on the streets…
I did it on the beach…
I did it in the car but only on the back seat…

I'm a sex freak one of a kind!!! I'm a sex freak one of a kind!!!

Part of Sex Freak - Slapshock

I played that song AT FULL BLAST in my car… a car with a couple of girls was right beside me… then they gave me “the look”. lol!

Dorothy, I know you've had amazing dreams
We can't go chasing down each golden street
Each and every rainbow, each passion, each unattainable goal
We're not in dreamland anymore

The complete lyrics are so very painful :( I love Cursive, they're one of my favorite bands!
