Share your greatest song or lyric???

Murlocs are one of my favorite bands. Francesca is a song about the lead singer’s mom. His dad left when he was a kid, and his mom had recently met a guy. This is a song about how happy she seems now. Sweet song about sweet Francesca.

 
I may be the only guy here who likes hip hop, but Aesop rock is my guy. This is a song calling out posers. Something that happens around here from time to time. 😅. Cool video, too.

 
For a romantic lyric, this is rather beautiful-

‘Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sow time’ - All of My Love by Led Zeppelin

Indicating the inexorable loss of youth and friends -

‘First my looks and now my friends
Day-by-day, I’m losing them
Losing them, losing collagen, losing elastin…’ Good Day by Bombay Bicycle Club

I always thought that was a song about his kid.

That’s a wild song. “If I had a job, then I’d have everything I want. The I’d quit my job.”

I like this version of Good Day, by Nappy Roots Very different kind of song… maybe a little more optimistic.

@We might as well do exactly what the children sayin'
Take a day off hit park and just hang
Barbecue, roll a few, and put up your deuce
If it's beef put down the peace up and put on your dukes
It's time to change our ways
So we can save the day
For the children's sake and make a better place to play”

I didn’t know that.

I’m surprised you’ve heard of them.

Have you heard of ‘The Smiths’ in the USA? They’re famous for their depressing lyrics juxtaposed with jolly music.]
 
Oh I’m so sorry to hear this. I wish her a speedy recovery.
”…I know, I know it’s serious. There were times when I could have murdered her, but I would hate anything to happen to her, no I don’t to see her. Do you really think she’ll pull through?…” it’s a Smiths song. “Girlfriend in a coma”

Wing Woo Gar!! The police might be reading thi!

Oh…My friend went to Wythenshawe College with Johnny Marr (The Smiths unique guitarist). He says he was cool, bohemian, wearing velvet jackets and a silk cravat and he was very popular being the ‘cock of the school’ (meaning the toughest, best fighter in the college). But, typical of his left-field personality, he used to look after, protect and fight for the geeks, nerds and fat kids that generally got picked on!
 
I didn’t know that.

lol. In the 80s, the smiths were my jam. The queen is dead, vicar in a tutu, girlfriend in a coma…. I don’t know if anyone under 40 knows who they are, but in the 80s, they were quite popular with mopey teens. :)

Another more recent example of sad lyrics and happy music are Lily Allen’s first few albums.

LDN is a good example:


But my favorite is Alfie:

Reminded me of this son.

"She was one in a million. That means there's 5 more just in new south Wales"

I used to quite like her music, but her overuse of the ‘glottal stop’ annoys me!

In the same vein, I once sent this comedic and clever song to a girlfriend and it initiated a barrage of rage, anger distrust and eventually the sweet quietude of silence. If only she was a scientist…
 
Had a few things happen between Thanksgiving to Christmas that pretty much took the majority of what I thought the future might hold and completely trashed them... this song seems to be working for me at the moment.... considering the day
