What are your favorite lines/verses from songs?

"I saw the sun inside your smile and wished for more than just a while. . ."
"Deep Waters" by Incognito

"I will just do as many sweet things that I can think of, I mean SAY as many sweet things . . ."
"She Needs Me" by my favorite artist, Marvin Gaye. This line gives me a chuckle every time (haha! men :-)

"I took you for a dancer and now we are here alone."
"Smile", Jamiroquai
(I hope he means the kind of dancer I was, not the kind on poles/laps ;-) but this line reminds of those butterflies, anticipation of when you've been crushing on someone for awhile and something physical - first kiss, a little making out - is about to happen for the first time. Kissing and making out is so underrated - it's just lovely.)

"Those lips were made to kiss me."
"Smile", Jamiroquai
Just hot - sexy and romantic; but my dirty mind always thinks "kiss you where??" ;-) when I hear this line. haha! that's me for you.

wow! amazing :mrgreen: I don't have Vulnerable!
"She needs me" is part of the ballad album?
I will buy it soon! I've been kinda busy :roll:

I do love "Smile". I don't think the "dancer" reference means stripper, but lover.
there are a few references to dancer on the album, so thinking he's not dating a bunch of strippers!!
:lol:

Coldplay, one band I really love,
Violet Hill:
I took my love down to violet hill
There we sat in snow
All that time she was silent, still

Said if you love me
Won't you let me know?

I love the song Lifeline:
Don't pick no hole in my soul
Don't you spoil my sweet charade
I get high on the girl
For me she was clearly made

but I laugh at this one:
I get the blues with the news
Girl let's get it on the hoof
:lol: :lol:

One Republic's "Counting Stars" favorite song (besides Happy)

I could lie, couldn't I, could lie
everything that kills me
makes me feel alive

lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
dreaming about the things that we could be
but baby I've been, I've been praying hard
said, no more counting dollars
we'll be, we'll be counting stars
:mrgreen:

Love love love this one! (and Happy too!) :mrgreen:

"I close my eyes
only for a moment
and the moments gone
all my dreams
pass before my eyes in curiosity
dust in the wind,
all they are is dust in the wind

Same old song,
just a drop of water
in an endless sea
all we do,
crumbles to the ground
though we refuse to see
dust in the wind,
all we are is dust in the wind "

MissLisa
"Dust in the Wind"? that was my favorite song as a kid!
:mrgreen:

Eminem is all about rhythm and lyrics, and lyrics, and lyrics...
favorite line from "Rap God" is
"Still funky but chunky" which I learned is a nod to Heavy D.

well, it's maybe also the only lyric I can grasp from all his ranting!!
:lol:

he sounds like he is really battling some demons
:shock:

@ my girl Giba7 - yes love the lyrics of "Lifeline" and it is funny but girl, I do really get the "blues with the news" - the line after that I don't quite get so do tell. But the news today - such a downer.

OMG, that song is like Prozac, Lexapro - i.e., happiness in a bottle - I love it. I'll have to come back and quote some of my fav verses from that song. That song makes me visualize my arms around the waist of guy speeding in a Harley or other motorcycle and snuggling the hair sticking out of his helmet and us just f------ escaping. I am a big scent person - I use a ton of sh--- that smells like vanilla. Cheers me up and makes me feel good.

(Jetlagged and tired but missed my little burgeoning Jamily while traveling ;-) Got my B-12 shots but all the French wine/champagne I received gratis are making them ineffective - half-smiling right now.)

From Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay":

"Whatever colors you have in your mind
I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine."

"Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile
Until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
His clothes are dirty but his hands are clean
And you're the best thing that he's ever seen."


This song listening on the plane ride back just made me feel high (sans drugs) - like I was floating on this big bed with all white sheets (pref. Egyptian cotton - lol :-)) and pillows. I feel like I am laying on this bed - au natural - just waiting for the guy with the dirty clothes to just take advantage and it's all pleasurable. Love this song - so romantic to me for some reason.

wow - interesting history on the song. It's the only Dylan song on my IPhone. I do not know a lot of Bob Dylan. Please send me the link to the article because I have loved that song for years - and various versions thereof. I am not on twitter :-( but kind of glad. - Like I said earlier, I already feel like nob coming here, sitting behind a computer and posting :-)) Yet I enjoy it - and if I like it, I just do it. haha! I like to be in the present and enjoy non tech stuff.

Gonna PM you cuz something has been on mind (that's another song I like by Donald Fra-----------)

I found my fav Lifeline lyrics but will have to post them tomorrow or another time.

The crickets (around my home) are going nuts tonight - I read it is the female mating sound. The female makes the sound to attract the males. I have got some horny a--- crickets outside. Nice noise to fall asleep to however.

"2073
2084
2093
Light years ahead you and me gonna be getting down on a space bed
We gonna be getting married in June
We gonna be getting down on the moon
Light years . . . interplanetary forms on the get down
Star wars interplanetary funk still getting down
Music won't have no race only face.
Peaceful face
."


One of my favs of Marvin Gaye; "A Funky Space Reincarnation" You just gotta hear it; hard to capture the funky, smooth vibe type written. Love the last two lines above.

ok Lifeline one of my favorites on RDLS and very befitting of sunny Los Angeles today - 83 degrees high - so I'll be hitting the beach soon. My favorite lines from the song:

"Rolling
Down the sunny avenues"

"Free ride
I haven't got a care in the world."

"Sweet life we're holding onto the best life."


These lines always make me feel good - they aren't deep or heavy lyrics- but they make me feel happy and cheer me up always :-)

Peace.

2 fabulous songs. I have to admit, I don't always know lyrics.

but I think Lifeline goes:
"Sweet life
we're holding onto this life...and all because you saved me"

"down the sunny avenues" probably from your country -California

As for Funky Space Reincarnation -that song makes me laugh. :lol:
And when you read the lyrics you realize how much it probably influenced Jamiroquai.

I miss the crickets from my other house out in the wilderness.

Girl, Gaye's "Ego Tripping" is even more hilarious . . . but so on point about materialism and consumerism in this world. He was light years ahead of his time; and ultimately I think it hurt him in the end but gave us great, thought provoking music.

It's sad, Gaye was preparing to file bankruptcy at the end of his very short life - and I am close friends with the attorney (he was at my wedding) who was going to handle the case. I also ran into Chaka Khan at his office as well. He's handled other artists' bankruptcies as well. Sad. Anyways, it is important to watch your money and do not spend more than what you bring in. However, I still feel a lot artist get screwed over. Jay deserves respect in that case because he seems to have had/has control over that issue.

I mean, look at Rihanna and her recent case.

OK lyrics - not the biggest Kanye fan anymore after MBDF but this line in Bound 2 almost gets me into trouble while driving but love it every time I hear it:

"CLOSE YOUR EYES AND LET THE WORDS PAINT A THOUSAND PICTURES"

Bound 2 - Kanye West

(there are other lines in this song my filthy mind quite enjoys but the one above gets me on the purest level.)

ok now I think you've stalked me and are now name dropping
-Chaka Khan 8)

Kanye does have some provoking lyrics.

so you have lyrics like:
"Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world..."

and then today there's:
"She’s a beast
I call her Karma (come back)"
she eats your heart out
like jeffrey dahmer"

Two words cuz I have to really have to run: "SWEET THING" . . . re Chaka. One of my favorite songs.

(I heard Mary J. Blige's version first (I'm a youngin') but Rufus and Chaka's . . . just awwwh) "Through the Fire" and other song that starts "Chaka Chaka Chaka Khan" - oooh - "I Feel For You." ? However, gosh no - no name dropping. This attorney (my "other" Dad - one of the smartest men I know, whose parents survived the Holocaust- introduced me to Otis Redding, amazing old school soul, jazz and more) has represented huge celebs I could name drop but Chaka (and entourage/family) was just there one day I was visiting. I did not think it was a big deal - more an example of how great artists do not manage their finances or get screwed over.

I just remember the Marvin Gaye bankruptcy story because obviously I am a huge fan of Marvin - and I think he told me about that long before I "really" got into Marvin. Living out life/bad relationships made me appreciate and relate to Marvin's music more. Big sigh - I just find Marvin's ending so sad; so much talent, such a visionary, the drugs, his dad. And screw the US in some ways because he was overseas when some of his new "different" stuff was created that I love. Our country is quite strange about accepting culture/music/race - a lot of great artists - writers and musicians escaped to Europe (Miles, Josephine Baker and more - the whole lost generation.)

Funny - I was thinking the same thing about you (like, does she have access to my ITunes' library or something??; but there's a ton of heavy metal there so . . .) But I have yet to meet a person (and I know a ton of folks) that appreciates and knows about Marvin's music as much as you.

Sh--- so much for two words. My husband says I suffer from needing to have the "last word" or "get my point in" - true. But I love Chaka - but I do not have a big catalog on her like I do Marvin or other artists.

Will try to write back tomorrow - enjoying my free lazy days in sunny California - but suppose to be somewhere 30 min ago. And coming here has (sickly?! strange?!) become part of my daily routine when I am in LA;; not working - like flossing and brushing my teeth - haha! but true -and I can do both simultaneously.)

Am I weird for rather wanting to discuss music than getting dolled up and going out drinking?

Thank God, no one in LA knows I am Jami fan. Or at least fan enough to come here. :-) omg dying laughing cuz coming here I have learned how little I know about the band.

This will be quick:

Great lyrical examples - but curious what Kanye songs are those? He is quite good with lyrics although he totaling ripped the term "MALIBUING IT" from me. No sh*t, you can ask my friends and family. I've been Malibuing it for years. Totally bit my style.

Omg - "Sympathy for the Devil" - Rolling Stones - just came on - now I am ready to party and get lit.

"Please to meet you, hope you guess my name . . ."

"I know I'm gonna reach my destination -
Use the Porsche" -


(I had to correct this post - she sang it again today; and now plans to write an entire song based on use the force :-) Also had to correct that she is 10 which makes her a little closer to being able to date Liam, Nile one of those dudes.)

My 1Der, 9 year old niece revised a Jamiroquai line from "use the force" yesterday when I picked up her and her sis up from school. Gave my girlfriend and I a good glad laugh.

My niece has always pointed out that she likes the lyrics in "Use in the Force" (I love the lyrics too.) Hope 1D does not cover this song :-) But great nonetheless that Jamiroquai's music is inspiring to her generation.

Still need to get out of taking them to the 1D concert in Sept.
