  • "Inside my heart is breaking/My makeup may be flaking/ but my smile still stays on" The Show Must Go On ~ Queen

    "Moskau, Moskau/ Wirf die gläser an die wand/ Russland ist ein Schönes land/ hohohohoho, HEY!" Moskau ~ Dschingus Kahn

    and

    "There's a Starman Waiting in the sky/He'd like to come and meet us but he thinks he'd blow out minds/ There's a Starman waiting in the sky/ He told us not to blow it/ 'cause he knows it's all worth while hold me/ Let the children lose it/ Let the children use it/ Let all the children Boogie." ~ Starman ~ David Bowie

    This actually does sound like a cool idea for a thread

    Thankyou!
    It's good to know that i can come up with something okay every once in a while (edible)

  • "I can't get over the way you love like ya' do, but I've got to be strong (?????) I've got to break free..." -Queen

    "I'm in a spin, ya know, shaking on a string ya know. You make me feel like dancing-" -Leo Sayer

    I have more but I can't remember them.

  • never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down.:D

  • I loved the lyrics from "Still Alive", the Portal ending credits song.

  • Anything by Alanis Morissette (too many to mention)

    The WORST lyrics are by owl city ! That guy smokes too much shibby and FYI... 1 thousand hugs from 10 thousand bugs is just bad math!
    Take that sesame street 'big book of rhymes for 2-5 year old' crap outside!

  • Right now I'm listening to Weezer's "Red Album" on a regular basis, and while I love most of the songs, I think the last verse of "Everybody Get Dangerous" is my favorite of the entire album. The song is about the crazy (and dangerous) stuff they've done when they were young, and the last verse is:

    What will we say when our kids come to us, and ask with a smile on their face: "Hey Dad, my friend's got some new ninja sword, is it cool if we slash up this place?"

  • Los Campesinos! - The Sea is a Good Place to Think of the Future

    I grabbed hold of her wrist and my hand closed from tip to tip, I said “you’ve taken the diet too far, you have got to let it slip”. But she’s not eating again, she’s not eating again, she’s not eating again, she’s not eating again.

    I ask her to speak French and then I need her to translate, I get the feeling she makes the meaning more significant. She was always far too pretty for me to believe in a single word she said, believe a word she said. At fourteen her mother died in a routine operation, from allergic reaction to a general anaesthetic. She spent the rest of her teens experimenting with prescriptions, in a futile attempt to know more than the doctors. She said one day to leave her, sand up to her shoulders waiting for the tide to drag her to the ocean, to another sea’s shore. This thing hurts like hell.

    But what did you expect?

    And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart
    And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course
    But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me
    Five hundred behind, a thousand years in perfect symmetry

    Best known left wrist right finger, through all the Southern States, on every video games machine they call her triple A. There were racists on the radio trying to give up smoking, the chat show host, he joked “you have to wait for the government program”. You talk about your politics, and I wonder if you could be one of them, but you could never kiss a Tory boy without wanting to cut off your tongue again.

    A good place to look to the future is when you are sat at the sea, with the salt up to your ankles and a view of the end of the pier, you may look down at your model’s feet and wish that you’d just float away, and the weather here is overcast and the sea is the same shade of grey, so the landscape before you looks just like the edge of the world, but to the left side and the right side, either way is a crazy golf course.

    The sea is a good place to think of the future.

    And all you can hear is the sound of your own heart
    And all you can feel is your lungs flood and the blood course
    But oh I can see five hundred years dead set ahead of me
    Five hundred behind,
    A thousand years in perfect symmetry
    A thousand years no getting rid of me
    A thousand years in perfect symmetry.

  • "'Cause there's nothing at all 'cept the space in between finding out what you're called and repeating your name..." Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby

    "If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes, you'll just have to claw your way through this disguise!" Pink Floyd - In the Flesh?

  • My favourite line I think is from Generation Sex by The Divine Comedy... well it's more a whole verse

    "Lovers watch there backs, as hacks, in macs, take snaps.
    Through telephoto lenses,
    Chase Mercedes Benz's
    Through the night

    A mourning nation weeps, and wails
    But keeps, the sales
    Of evil tabloids healthy
    The poor protect the wealthy, in this world


    He's talking about the death of Princess Diana just to clarify, I think it's a cracking reflection on the order of things
