Worst/ Best song lyric lines

Recommended Posts

I’ve just had the misfortune of hearing the new West Life song which features the line:  Perfect teeth, hair growing where it's meant to.

 

That got me thinking what is the best/ worst line you’ve heard? Hair growing where its meant to - what does that even mean? Who would admit writing it and expect someone to actual sing it?

Salt Shaker - Ying Yang Twins

 

Shawty crunk / on the floor wide open

Skeet so much / they call her Billy Ocean

 

 

edit: nominating this for best, btw.

 

edit2: nomination for worst, from Macarthur Park by Richard Harris -

 

Someone left the cake out in the rain

I don't think that I can take it

'Cause it took so long to bake it

And I'll never have that recipe again

Best? I don't think you've made it clear given the OP, like :lol: but these are IMO, mainly because they mean a lot personally and are tattooed on me:

 

When the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me

 

God have mercy on the man who doubts what he's sure of

 

You think they're talking 'bout you but you don't know who, I'll be scraping their lives from the sole of my shoe tonight

"People look to me and say

Is the end near, when is our final day?

What's the future of mankind?

How should I know? I got left behind."

 

It's like Ozzy got sick of people coming up to him in the supermarket and asking about the end of the world, so he set the record straight with his song 'I Don't Know'

In terms of my favourite, it changes all the time, but I've always really enjoyed At the Drive-In. Just absolutely dripping in word-play and, aye, a bit gibberish, but I really like it and the flow of it is often brilliant as well.

 

"The proposition handcuffed to the park bench, hypodermic people poking fun at the living" is one that sticks out because the way it works in the songs, but it's probably not the best like.

"Yeah I've been on the road nearly all my life

Been around the world 'bout a thousand times

Still a knock on the door makes me nervous

I think I'll see you standing there - but no

It's only room service - yeah - room service"

As an aside, not to be all le wrong generation and all that, but modern lyrics do generally seem thicker recently. Every attempt at a simile or metaphor is nigh on always a literal comparison and it always seems to include 'like' or 'just like' where they pretty much spell it out for you.
