New Poll Topic!

Okay, I don’t really have anything to write today, so I thought I’d do one of my favorite things EVER: Take a poll! Yay. I think my favorite poll topic so far was “who’s your favorite villain” or “What two people, real or otherwise, would you like to see in a brawl?”
(If you haven’t answered either of these questions, please do, because I love to see the wacky sh*t everyone comes up with). air sax
And the new Poll Topic…
drum roll please……..

What are your favorite song lyrics?

(whole song or just a line.)

Not the MOST original, but everyone must have an answer to this. Right?
I’m still thinking of mine…


ps-that’s just a random picture of my friend & me playing air-sax. We’re so good.

    So I’ll cash my checks and place my bets
    And hope I’ll always win
    Even if I don’t I’m ***ked because
    I live a life of sin
    But it’s alright
    I don’t give a damn
    I don’t play your rules I make my own
    Tonight
    I’ll do what I want
    Cuz I can
    — PINK, Cuz I Can

    -or-

    So what’s it gonna take silver shadow believer?

    Gonna f**k up your ego

    cool website alex, will have to wrack my brain for fave lyrics, but I’m listening to a really cool song at the mo called Turning Blue by The Swallows…

    sister I’m turning blue,
    i’m holding my breath for a dream gone dead,
    kicking the Jones for you,
    cos the truth don’t feel inside my head
    sister I’m turning blue

    ” I got soul but I’m not a soldier” – all these things that i’ve done by The Killers

    and

    “You know it really wont surprise me
    If you’re a wreck by the age of fourteen
    The way you look
    The way you look is fine

    So often colour coordinated
    your sister she’s an Eighties fan
    But that’s alright
    Have I told you so is mine

    You say your life will be the death of you
    Tell me, do you wash your hair in honey dew?
    And long for all of them to fall in love with you
    But they never do

    Drinking vodka on the fly
    Your mother has a watchful eye
    So look out kid
    She’s onto you this time

    Run away to a bed and breakfast
    Console yourself with the Reader’s Digest
    Ringing the Yellow Pages all alone

    You say your life will be the death of you
    Tell me, do you wash your hair in honey dew?
    And long for all of them to fall in love with you
    But they never do
    No they never do

    I’m gonna tell you something good about yourself
    I’ll say it now and I’ll never say it about no one else

    I’m gonna tell you something good about yourself
    I’ll say it now and I’ll never say it about no one else
    About no one else”
    – eighties fan by Camera Obscura

    Hmm… I have a lot of favorite villains. I love, love, love Shakespeare’s Iago. And Hannibal. And Frollo from the Hunchback. I sometimes love villains more than anything out of a story. They can be infinitely more interesting. 😉

    As for lyrics… my favorite one ever is tough to say. I think one of my favorite lyrics, that makes me sigh whenever I hear the words are Jann Arden’s “In Your Keeping.” Just a gorgeous and haunting song all around.

    Tell me I will never die
    Take away my pain
    Rock me gently in your arms
    Say that I’ll remain in your keeping

    Brush the hair out of my face
    Read me a good story
    Kiss my fingertips goodnight
    Long will I remain in your keeping
    ~In Your Keeping

    *sigh*

    Now I’m off to listen to it. 🙂 Love your blog!

    Hemingway, Eichmann, Stranger in a Strange Land
    Dylan, Berlin, Bay of Pigs Invasion/
    Lawrence of Arabia, British Beatlemania
    Ole Miss, John Glenn, Liston beats Patterson/
    Pope Paul, Malcolm X, British politician sex
    JFK, blown away, what else do I have to say

    Not my favorite song, but the lyrics are damn fun to rattle off at a rapid-fire pace!

  12. shari says:

    Not my most favorite (which I can’t pinpoint), but still cool to me nonetheless. 🙂

    INCUBUS Lyrics

    Drive Lyrics

    Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
    And I can’t help but ask myself how much I’ll let the fear take the wheel and steer
    It’s driven me before, it seems to have a vague
    Haunting mass appeal
    Lately I’m beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there
    With open arms and open eyes yeah
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there, I’ll be there
    So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive
    Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive, oh oh
    It’s driven me before, it seems to be the way
    That everyone else get around
    Lately, I’m beginning to find that when I drive myself, my light is found
    Whatever tomorrow brings, I’ll be there
    With open arms and open eyes yeah

  13. Emma says:

    anything to do with the beatles is always awesome.
    and of course the lyrics to “we’re going to be friends” by the white stripes.

    tonight i’ll dream while in my bed
    and silly thoughts run through my head
    about the bugs and alphabet
    and when i wake tomorrow i’ll bet
    that you and i can walk together again
    ’cause i can tell that we are going to be friends

    totally memorized those lyrics, i loooove that song.

  14. alexgirl says:

    Dizzamn peeps! There is some really good shit here. And my music collection is about to expand because of it! 😉 thanks for the responses.
    Here’s mine, by Rilo Kiley:

    And sometimes when you’re on
    You’re really fucking on
    And your friends they sing along
    And they love you
    But the lows are so extreme
    That the good seems fucking cheap
    And it teases you for weeks in its absence
    But you’ll fight and you’ll make it through
    You’ll fake it if you have to
    And you’ll show up for work with a smile

    I just love that song. And this one, too, by Magnetic Fields:

    Don’t fall in love with me yet
    We only recently met
    True I’m in love with you but
    you might decide I’m a nut
    Give me a week or two to
    go absolutely cuckoo
    then, when you see your error,
    then, you can flee in terror
    like everybody else does
    I only tell you this cause
    I’m easy to get rid of
    but not if you fall in love
    Know now that I’m on the make
    and if you make a mistake
    my heart will certainly break
    I’ll have to jump in a lake
    and all my friends will blame you
    There’s no telling what they’ll do
    It’s only fair to tell you
    I’m absolutely cuckoo

    My music collection is about to expand, too!

  16. crystaljade says:

    Don’t mind me.
    I’m watching you two from the closet
    Wishing to be the friction in your jeans.
    Sugar We’re Going Down, Fall Out Boy

    A little juvenile, but it’s really original…

    “Help me make the most of freedom and of pleasure, nothing ever lasts forever…” Everybody Wants to Change the World, Tears for Fears

    Thanks for making me pause today (and listen to my Best of T for F collection!)

  18. Dad says:

    As Emma says, there’s a lot of rich material from Lennon & McCartney. Like:
    Imagine there’s no heaven
    It’s easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    (“Imagine” — John Lennon)

    It’s hard to improve on this:
    You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog,
    Cryin’ all the time,
    You ain’t never caught a rabbit
    And you ain’t no friend of mine.
    (“Hound Dog” — Lieber & Stoller)

    But this one from Lorenz Hart always sticks in my head:
    You have what I lack myself,
    Now I even have to scratch my back myself.
    (“It Never Entered My Mind” — Lorenz Hart)

  19. Crazy Eddie says:

    Hands down, my favorite villain would have to be Gogo from Kill Bill Vol. 1. I loved her look (school girl mixed with a little bit of cuckoo) and her fighting style was wicked…

    As far as my favorite lyrics… that’s a tough one. I will definitely get back to you on that…

    Love this inclusion post. Love you…
