MTftSB Do you have a favourite lyric?


#1

Mine is probably either Elliott Smith’s They say that God makes problems just to see what you can stand / Before you do as the Devil pleases
Or just Kate Bush’s Tell me we both matter, don’t we?

I may have done this before, but shoot.


#2

Asking only workman’s wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come-on from the whores
On Seventh Avenue
I do declare
There were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there, le le le le le le le


#3

You believe in things that you don’t understand


#4

do do do-do do-do!


#5

Maybe the sun keeps coming up cos it’s gotten used to you and your constant need for proof.


#6

We’ve got some half priced cracked ice
And miles and miles of carpet tiles
TV’s, deep freeze and David Bowie LP’s
Pool games, gold chains, wosnames
And at a push
Some Trevor Francis track-suites
From a mush in Shepherds Bush, Bush, Bush,
Bush, Bush, Bush, Bush, Bush

Plonker

nice n cool, son, nice n cool.

Realisant mon espoir, je me lance vers la gloire.

“It was the biggest ever cock you’d ever seen, but you’ve no idea where that cock has been”


#11

I’ve always loved “borrowed nostalgia for the unremembered 80s” as an absolutely perfect summation of a thing.

Also “the cumulative weight of all my chain letter curses” for some reason, there’s absolutely fucking loads from Why? that would qualify for me if you’d made this thread in 2008 or whatever.

“Ask Beavis, I get nothing Butthead” is an exceptionally puerile but funny one-liner from Big L.

“Cause life ain’t shit but stress, fake niggas, and crab stunts, so I guzzle my Hennessy while pulling on mad blunts” is fucking insanely satisfying to listen to when married with it’s beat, not like meaningful, deep lyrics or whatever but the way they fit together is more satisfying to me than peeling the paper of a new pack of blu-tac or something.

Just like I thought, they were in the same spot
In need of some desperate help
But Nate Dogg and the G child were in need of somethin’ else
One of them dames was sexy as hell
I said "Ooh, I like your size!"
She said "My car’s broke down
And you seem real nice, would you let me ride?"
I got a car full of girls and it’s goin’ real swell
The next stop is the Eeeeeeeastsiiiiiiiiiiide Mooooooooooteeeeeeeeeeeel


#13

this did me


#14

But don’t, don’t lose hope. Don’t feel sad 'cause it’s a violent world. There’s still beauty, I’ll take care of you if you take care of me.

Fave song ever. Always makes me weepy with joy.


#15

I got a letter from the government the other day
I opened and read it, it said they were suckas
They wanted me for their army or whatever
Picture me giving a damn, I say never
Here’s a land that never gave a damn
about a brother like me and myself
because they never did


#16

also

Regulatoooooooooors
MOUNT UP

really wanna get this which is kind of related.


#17

As a single line, this springs to mind from Ka.

Little n***** who didn’t turn pros is cons


#18

Also it’s dated as hell in it’s attitude but I’ve always loved the simplicity/relatability of “Do you have to spend so much time on your hair? Well couldn’t you start it earlier? Of course you’ve got things to wear” from The Wedding Present


#19

Mine is from a song to pass the time by bright eyes, not gonna type it out


#20

some really satisfying bits in that song to sing along to

I am tweaking into a whole new era
G-funk step to this I dare ya
Funk on a whole new level
The rhythm is the bass and the bass is the treblllllllllle
