Bring Back Glam! By Request: Favorite Lyrics

This one is for my girl Hollpass!

It's time to list your favorite song lyrics - preferably one specific line.

Here are my all time faves:

1) "So we took our dreams, ran like hell/Lived our youth from the wishing well" - "Danger" by Motley Crue

2) "Well it looks like the road to heaven/But it feels like the road to hell/When I knew which side my bread was buttered/I took the knife as well" - "Freedom 90" by George Michael

3) "I just had to let it go/Took all the pennies I had/Threw 'em in the wishing well/And I wish you well" - "Down Incognito" by Winger 

4) "Today was the day for action/Leave my bed to kill instead/Why should it happen?" - "Draft Morning" by the Byrds

5) "Like gasoline you wanna pump me/And leave me when you get your fill" - "Unskinny Bop" by Poison

Obviously I have a lot more favorite lyrics. The selections above are pretty random out of my list. A mix of Glam, pop and war protest for you on this Thursday.

It's all you: what are some of your favorite lyrics?

If you're havin' trouble with your high school head

Pick up the phone

For so much lip
I must admit
I get a laugh from your ego trip
You're so educated, emancipated
Such a rolling stone
But you better watch out
Cuttin' you no slack
Payback's a bitch
And the bitch is back
"Hell to Pay", Winger

I must admit, this is me today... ;)

April 17, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChessie're going to have to live with the things you say.'ll have to cross bridges that you burned today.
And everything you do, it's coming back for you
You'll never outrun what waits for you

-Bullet Boys "smooth up in ya" 1988
call me a romantic old fool, but i like this one:

I'm just another heart in need of rescue,
Waiting on love's sweet charity
And I'm gonna hold on for the rest of my days,
Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams
And here I go again on my own

(Whitesnake "Here I Go Again")

I have 3 favorites from 3 different phases in my life...

1st Most recently:
"YOU KNOW I'M LIAR BABY.... AND THAT'S THE TRUTH..." MC - OF COURSE! Can't wait for the Denver show!

2nd corny side: Pearl Jam's Black..."I know some day you'll have a beautiful life - I know you'll be a somebody else's sky...WHY WHY WHY...Can't it be, why can't it be in MINE???"

NIN's "The Only Time"

"I'm drunk And right now I'm so in love with you
And I don't want to think too much about what we should or shouldn't do..Lay my hands on heaven and the sun and the moon and the stars While the devil wants to fuck me in the back of his car..nothing quite like the feel of something new..."

Sorry - couldn't leave any of them out!!!
Looking forward to meeting you officially at ROK! HOLLPASS!!

This one of the lyrics that hold all of my love for Rock & Roll :D

"Sometimes it's easy
Sometimes so tough
But just have one thing clear
I can't get enough

Rock now, rock the night
'Til early in the morning light
Rock now, rock the night
You'd better believe it's right."

Here are some of my favorite lyrics;

Cinderella "Gypsy Road"
And whos to care if I grow my hair to the sky
Ill take a wish and a prayer cross my fingers cause I always get by


Poison "Let It Play"
But when I hear the music
All my troubles just fade away
When I hear the music
Let it play, let it play
When I hear the music
Sure as darkness I can see the day
When I hear the music
Let it play
Let it play

"You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice /
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."
Rush - Freewill

Actually, you could pretty much any Rush lyric. In this regard, and probably many others, Neil Peart is unmatched..


"We got liquor up front, and poker in the rear"
Vince Neil - Sister of Pain

I'm a sucker for a bad pun. I can't help laughing whenever I that line. Heh.
I would have included a Dogs D'Amour lyric too, but I couldn't pick one. :)

"So tell me Joey whats behind the stained glass, did she dress you like an alter boy and treat you like trash? How did it feel? Was it a kick? Did you wear the crown of thorns and teh plastic crucifix?"

Tuff-Tied to the bells-from the album "Religious fix"

Severely underrated band, extremely underrated album.
