Awesome opening lines

Recommended Posts

Just having listened to Leonard Cohen's First We Take Manhattan and thinking about the cool opening line made me stumble across this: http://flavorwire.com/167657/50-of-the-best-opening-lines-in-music

so, what are some other awesome opening lines to songs?

They sentenced me to 20 years of boredom

PS I know that there's an old thread about this topic, but it wasn't used in 4 and a half years... fresh start?

"So I always get nostalgic with that song

But in my room its forced

It has to be in some car across the street"

That Song - Big Wreck

I dunno why, but the very first line sets the tone (& the title) and there's no long intro, he starts singing almost right away and that makes me love it.
