What is the most recognizable lyric line ever?

Recommended Posts

But while we're at it, how about....

"'SCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THE SKY!"

:afro: :afro: :afro: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

if you read the thread title differently this is quite ironic, because this line must be the most misunderstood line as well :D

"'scuse me, while I kiss this guy" :jester:

"If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?"

"Imagine there's no heaven..."

"We are the champions

No time for losers

Cause we are the champions - of the world."

"We will we will rock you."

"Yesterday, all my troubles seem so far away..."

"I still haven't found what I'm looking for..."

It's amazing how many of these aren't familiar to me, eg

"Y'gotta lose your mind in Detroit, Rock City"... that's gotta be Kiss, right?

"If I leave here tomorrow, would you still remember me?" no idea ;-(

I'm losing my edge.

Some Bob Dylan -

"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief...

Ah, but I was so much older then,

I'm younger than that now.

But even the president of the United States

Sometimes must have

To stand naked.

Mama, take this badge off of me

I can't use it anymore.

How does it feel

To be on your own

With no direction home

Like a complete unknown

Like a rolling stone?

I see my light come shining

From the west unto the east.

Any day now, any day now,

I shall be released.

:cool:

That would be the opening line to Lynryd Skynyrd's "Free Bird". I thought most would recognize it especially classic rock fans...

Aah, Free Bird, yes. Virtually unheard of in Australia. I have heard it... a kind of sludgy dirgy thing, quite unlike anything else by LS. I can hear that guitar theme in my head now. Thanks for enlightening me ;-)

I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth...

Have you seen my wife, Mr Jones... (Your wife should know that line, Lee!)

Freedom's just another word for nothin left to lose...

You're just too good to be true...

I saw her today, I saw her face...

Get your motor running...

Who could hang a name on you?

Some contenders for the most recognisable OzRock lyric:

"Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone"

"They got married early"

"Hey now, Hey now"

"Monday morning feels so bad"

Songs that were popular and had a popular cover version released years later would be pretty recognisable:

"No one knows what it's like, to be the bad man, to be the sad man..."

Or popular songs that have been sampled:

"When I was young it seemed that life was so wonderful..." (which, of course, isn't the only Supertramp song that has been sampled in a hit single).
