(Shall I compare thee to the food of life? Play on…)
Okay, this is one of those posts where I mostly shut up – but I was reading a newspaper column that sang the virtues of certain pop lyrics, so I thought, alright, but what would a top ten of pop lyric one (or two) liners look like?
To be honest, I immediately had my number one but then I thought it wouldn’t hurt to draw things out a bit.
So, before I leave you with my number one, I’ll give you five other great lines:
1)“There is a crack in everything, That’s how the light gets in”
2)“And I never buy umbrellas, For there’s always one around”
3) “Got some whisky from the barman, Got some cocaine from a friend”
4) “They paved paradise, And put up a parking lot”
5) “The captain is a one-armed dwarf, He’s throwing dice along the wharf”
Good lines all but this one truly can’t be beat:
“I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die”
Which, obviously, leaves me with this one question to you: What would feature in YOUR top ten of pop one-liners?
