🗣 Favourite opening line of a song?

“I never thought it would happen
With me and a girl from Clapham”


I know it’s childish but Rainbows by The Moldy Peaches has long been my favourite opening line

You gotta have rain to have a rainbow
You gotta have dick to have a dick in your mouth

I feel obligated to throw some Titus Andronicus in:

Okay, I think, by now, we’ve established
that everything is inherently worthless
And there is nothing in the universe
with any kind of objective purpose


I’ve got a bone to pick with capitalism
And a few to break


I’m sorry mama,
But I’ve been drinking again

Personal favourite of mine


I hope that our few remaining friends
Give up on trying to save us
I hope we come up with a fail-safe plot
To piss off the dumb few that forgave us


And now we proudly present songs perverse and songs of lament
a couple hymns of confession and songs that recognise our sick obsessions.

And in fact another good Kasher one:
The first time that I met her I was throwing up in a ladies room stall

You could really fill up the whole thread with Titus Andronicus, Patrick Stickles is seriously one of the few greatest lyricists ever.

“I’m in love with your brother… What’s his name?”

Stop making the eyes at me
I’ll stop making the eyes at you

“I was at a funeral the day I realized I wanted to spend my life with you”
