View Full Version : greatest line ever

02-14-2008, 01:35 PM
You see the title. What's the greatest line in a song ever?

Actually you can close the thread because there is only one correct answer. It's "YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE??? YOU'RE IN THE JUNGLE, BABY! AND YOU'RE GONNA DIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

Honorable mention to Snoop Dogg's "You should think about it. Take a second."

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but youre older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Not so much a line as a verse...but still.

Honorable mention to "Excuse me while I light my spliff. Oh, God I got to take a lift"

02-14-2008, 02:34 PM
"Stop, take some time to think, figure out what's important to you".

Seriously, there's any question?

"No more hope for better days!"

Come out and smash'em up!

Jag känner en bott, hon heter Anna, Anna heter hon
Och hon kan banna, banna dig så hårt
Hon röjer upp I våran kanal

Boten Anna by Basshunter with English lyrics (http://youtube.com/watch?v=wX79tgB2PVk)

however that's a terrible translation, here's mine:

I know a bot, She's called Anna, Anna is her name
And she can ban you, ban you pretty hard
She cleans up our channel
I'm telling you, I know a bot

I know a bot
Who watches over everyone here
And makes sure that we can chat in peace
There are no succesful takeovers of our channel

Remember that I know a bot,
A bot surpassed by no others
She can kick you off
She takes care of all spammers
Yeah, no one can beat our bot

Suddenly came a day that I never thought would come
It destabilized our channel
I have never felt so bad
When Anna wrote:
"I'm not a bot,
I've a very very hot chick"
And now this felt pretty strange for me
But there is nothing that needs to be explained
Because in my eyes, she'll always be a bot

I met this little girlie, her hair was kinda curly
Went to her house and bust her out, I had to leave real early
Etc. Run DMC - "It's Tricky"

To protect the world from devastation.
To unite all peoples within our nation.
To denounce the evils of truth and love.
To extend our reach to the stars above.

"I'm lyrically black, so don't try to ignore!"

Google that. I dare you!!!

The best lyrics I ever found are those of The House of the Rising Sun. When you listen to that song you really feel like some story is being unfolded, whose tragic implications won't fail to bring you down as well... yeah from the point of view of lyricism, it truly is the one best song I've ever heard (in English). It creates an atmosphere and a world all its own. Plus the songster is sexy.

One of those rare moments where I agree with you. I think that song really has wonderful lyrics. It really is just a fantastic song all around. I'm a huge fan of Shawn Mullins' cover of it. His voice is so perfectly suited for the song.

I'm no joker, play me as a joker!
Be on you like a house on fire; smoke ya
And crews be acting like the gangs anyway,
Be like: "Warriors! Come out and playiyay!"

There were so many Wu Tang lines that came to mind, but I figure that's probably their most popular tune. It's hard to lose when you go with the Wu.

oh wait I got a good one:

I'm not a trendy asshole
I do what I want, do what I feel like
I don't give a fuck if it's good enough for you
cause I'm not a trendy asshole

just cuz im a little stoned and 2 songs have been on whilst writing this...here we go...

" I saw you out there yesterday
What did you want to say
A perfect piece of DNA
Caught in a flashing ray
I caught you out there in the fray
What did you want to say
A master piece of DNA
Caught in a flashing ray "

And the Immortal

"But as I sit here alone
Think of the girl who came softly inside me
The look in her eyes, the smell of her hair
Call her my own but is she really there?

Love for life
Such noble words for noble minds
Show me a love for life
Cause I'll be waiting for that day to arrive
When I'll feel alive"
I'll be waiting for that day

Jimmy Jimmy y'all Jimmy damn Jimmy yea
Gimme the mic Rob so I can take it away
Got more lines than the welfare office
Are you upset you'll never get to be as clever as this?
Spreadin' quicker than your mom have a feel but don't cop it
Yeah I stole your beat but that's 'cause you dropped it
Crude as oil unrefined but slick
I'm gonna get you from behind like a gay convict
'Cause my name ain't Quasimodo but I still got a hunch
That like the Jim Jones cult I'll take you out with one punch
You're Spiro Agnew and I'm the Dick you answer to
You're sweatin' like a watermelon at a Baptist barbecue
Sneakin' up like celery yeah I'm stalkin'
I squeak like Stephen Hawkings yeah but I'm walkin'
Nose to ground so this Bloodhound will sniff and follow it
I hope you choke on your pride when I make you swallow it
Screamin' like a Mimi when you see me comin' near ya
Like a Kenny Loggins' record no one's ever gonna hear ya
Like a game of Hide and Seek it's all over if I see ya
'Cause you're yellower than tinkle and you'll be runnin' like diarrhea

Nice. Perfectly said. I like it.

EDIT: I feel it's important to say I could feel him saying it while I read it ---- before I actually recognized it.

this probably ain't it but it's gotta be something by the dead kennedys

Were sorry
We hate to interrupt
But its against the law to jump off this bridge
Youll just have to kill yourself somewhere else
A tourist might see you
And we wouldnt want that...
Im just doing my job, you know
So say uncle
And well take you to the mental health zoo
Force feed you mind-melting chemicals
Til even the outside world looks great

"the world has grown cold, now that you've gone away"

Basically the lyrics to the whole song... I absolutely adore it.

Hehe, I actually get chills when I listen to it...! No shit :D

03-03-2008, 09:12 PM
Shit, I didn't know people were actually gonna take this thread seriously. Anyway, aside from the aforementioned immortal GNR and Snoop Dogg lines, I have a couple more nominations.

"Now we all want to die like movie stars you said, as you jumped from the height of our cutting room floor, while above us, glowing, exploding, our dreams burst forth in light and death! HOLD ME AND TELL ME WE'LL BURN LIKE STARS!! WE'LL BURN AS WE FALL!!! WATCH AS CITY LIGHTS... DANCE FOR US!!!!!!!!!"

Music has never made me lol so hard, I swear to God.

And also, Army of Freshmen: "When I was only a kid, I hid in the pyramids, archaeologists came, so I just changed my name."
