Best Opening Lyrics Ever?
« on: November 27, 2007, 09:17:02 PM »

Any genre, Any era, Anybody, but it has to be the opening line or lines.

Mine would have to be.

Sitting on a park bench
Eyeing little girls with bad intent.


What's yours?

PS. List the band too!

One of my all time favorites:

She walked out of her house and looked around at all the gardens that looked back at her house like all the faces that quiz when you smile...

I surprised you didn't pick these lines:

Quote
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?

I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was Mr. McGee
He told me several times that he didn't like my kind
cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

Seems that I was busy doing something close 2 nothing
But different than the day before.....

Speaking of which...

This is one of my faves (and spacey's too):

The Cure - Just Like Heaven

"Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream", she said
"The one that makes me laugh", she said
Threw her arms around my neck
"Show me how you do it, and I promise you
I promise that I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"

Great thread!

I love Just Like Heaven.

Here's two that came to mind immediately.

I guess I shoulda known
By the way u parked your car sideways
That it wouldn't last

Prince Little Red Corvette


Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a mans soul and faith

If there isn't light when no one sees
Then how can I know what you might believe
A story told that can't be real
Somehow must reflect the truth we feel, yeah

Fade away, fade away
Vanish into small
Fade away, fade away
Break the crystal ball

Well, it's not from a song but it should be:

 Gerald began--but was interrupted by a piercing whistle which cost him ten percent of his hearing permanently, as it did everyone else in a ten-mile radius of the eruption, not that it mattered much because for them "permanently" meant the next ten minutes or so until buried by searing lava or suffocated by choking ash--to pee.

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank




Some of the best non-opening lyrics too.
