Best Opening Lyrics

Spinner magazine has published a list of the 25 best opening lyrics.

Here are some of my faves:

"You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar"

"I've been a bad, bad girl"

"I was dreaming when I wrote this"

"Tommy used to work on the docks"

"Well, she was just seventeen -- you know what I mean"

and, of course,

"Go, shorty. It's your birthday"

I think my favorite so far is "I am an anarchist" and I don't even LIKE the Sex Pistols.

Timothy Smith said...

"Crazy - but that's how it goes"

Thomas said...

Paige, you'll be happy to know I did.

Houston, hope you guys get power back soon.

Sil, I thought the lyric was "I am an anti-Christ"!

Tim, the Ozzman, huh? Very nice.

Still now power. Writing this from a McDonald's with ATT wifi.

Thomas said...

Houston, I don't know how long I'd last without power (I'm so used to having a fan going while trying to get to sleep).

It seems half the rap songs are dedicated to my colleague's nickname, Shorty. Great stuff for goofy dance moves.
