Yeah, yeah, yeah (ode to the Fab 4) another music post. This time let's hear what you consider to lines from a tune that have withstood the test of time (and the 90's an 00's). Has to be a line that makes a song instantly recognizable; such as...

"Snot running down his nose.........."

(for all palmophiles) "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot"

"She's filing her nails while they're draggin' the lake"

"The fury of the hour, anger can be power, you know that you can use it" (only for original punks here)

Xtra bonus points and a free home version of Jeopardy if you give me the song titles above.

Let's go!

"leaving on a jet plane-don't know when I'll be back again-oh babe I hate to go... isn't the title of the song "leaving on a jet plane" sung by Peter Paul and Mary?

Heres one: "hello Ruby in the dust, has your band begun to rust?"

Scott, you can be my wingman anytime!

I forgot to include: "I saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac"

Now, it's gotta be a line that stands alone in the song, not just a chorus that we all know. Ya know? Like this one; "Fer sure, fer sure".

  • It's not time to make a change

  • Hello darkness my old friend

Dean, " Castles in the sand"- Sir James Hendrix

Three six nine

The Goose drank wine

Monkey chewed tobacco on the street car line

He'd play his heart out when he was at parties

Guys would get jealous- but the girls were impressed

They'd ask how he did it, he'd say

Nothing to it, with this kind of guitar it brings out my best

All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey.

I may not always love you, but long as there are stars above you.

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.

"me gotta go" could be either "jambalaya" by the REAL hank or "louie louie" by the kingsmen. :interesting:

Score! I intended "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen. Other than "Louie, Louie" and "me gotta go", the lyrics are unintelligible.

Kim, begging to differ but I NEVER had problems deciphering those lyrics. Clear as Kurt Cobain's lyrics for "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
