Worst/ Best song lyric lines
« on: Monday 18 February 2019, 06:26:28 PM »
I’ve just had the misfortune of hearing the new West Life song which features the line:  Perfect teeth, hair growing where it's meant to.

That got me thinking what is the best/ worst line you’ve heard? Hair growing where its meant to - what does that even mean? Who would admit writing it and expect someone to actual sing it?

Salt Shaker - Ying Yang Twins

Shawty crunk / on the floor wide open
Skeet so much / they call her Billy Ocean


edit: nominating this for best, btw.

edit2: nomination for worst, from Macarthur Park by Richard Harris -

Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again

My answer is and will probably always be every single word in She's So Lovely by Scouting for Girls.

Although Perfect 10 by The Beautiful South is also a song that knocks me sick.

Best? I don't think you've made it clear given the OP, like :lol: but these are IMO, mainly because they mean a lot personally and are tattooed on me:

When the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me

God have mercy on the man who doubts what he's sure of

You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who, I'll be scraping their lives from the sole of my shoe tonight
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

I reckon Haydn wears pure concentrated pheromones.

"People look to me and say
Is the end near, when is our final day?
What's the future of mankind?
How should I know? I got left behind."

It's like Ozzy got sick of people coming up to him in the supermarket and asking about the end of the world, so he set the record straight with his song 'I Don't Know'
Not one of the cool kids, and really insecure about it.

In terms of my favourite, it changes all the time, but I've always really enjoyed At the Drive-In. Just absolutely dripping in word-play and, aye, a bit gibberish, but I really like it and the flow of it is often brilliant as well.

"The proposition handcuffed to the park bench, hypodermic people poking fun at the living" is one that sticks out because the way it works in the songs, but it's probably not the best like.

"So many pretty girls around me and they're waking up the rocket"
 Bruno Mars or someone of that ilk.
 Awful to the n'th degree.

As an aside, not to be all le wrong generation and all that, but modern lyrics do generally seem thicker recently. Every attempt at a simile or metaphor is nigh on always a literal comparison and it always seems to include 'like' or 'just like' where they pretty much spell it out for you.

"What do you want for tea? I want crisps"

Never Miss A Beat by the Kaiser Chiefs.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too
