At the top of every page on the site there is a line from a song which are nice to read but after a while you've read them all. Post here for your favorite quotes from songs and i'll ask to Albummaster to check it out once we have a decent amount and hopefully he'll add some more.

Some of my favorites:

Leonard Cohen: It's hard to hold the hand of anyone/who is reaching for the sky just to surrender

Bob Dylan: And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street/And now you find out youre gonna have to get used to it

The Clash: Yankee detectives/Are always on the tv/cos killers in america/Work seven days a week (so witty and so funny)

Elvis Costello: But don't you think that I know that walking on the water/won't make me a miracle man?

Nick Cave: Father, why are all the children weeping?/They are merely crying son/O, are they merely crying, father?/Yes, true weeping is yet to come

Lou Reed (Velvet Underground): cause it makes me feel like Im a man/When I put a spike into my vein/And Ill tell ya, things arent quite the same/When Im rushing on my run/And I feel just like jesus son

great idea. there just needs to be one constraint to this, lyrics can't be longer than 50-60 characters (one or two lines of a song) due to screen-space issues. Vote on the best ones and of course we'll definitely include them on the site.

Johnny, I highly enjoyed your Nick Cave selection.

Some of my favourite quotes are:

"with your jaw hanging slack and your hairs curling
like an old navy fork sticking in the sunset"

"I couldn't see what you could show me
Your scarf it kept your mouth well hid"

"severin sting so slightly, severin down on your bended knee
taste the whip in love not given lightly
taste the whip, now bleed for me"

"I shall drive my chariots down your streets and cry
'hey it's me i'm dynamite, but i don't know why'
and you shall take me strongly in your arms again
and i shall not remember that i ever felt the pain
we shall walk in town in gardens misty wet with rain
and i shall never ever ever ever feel so old again"

"I wanna make a deal with you girl
Get it signed by the heads of State!
I wanna make a deal with you girl
It be recongizned 'round the world
it's my NONALIGNMENT PACT!"

and many more
