"[Of Music]. Thou speakest to me of things which in all my endless life I have not found and shall not find." -Jean Paul Richter

Are you tired of the reading the same old quotes in the Current Quote box?

Have you noticed any glaring errors in any of the quotes?

Are there any quotes you would like to see banished from the box for all of eternity?

This is where you can change the course of history. Suggest new quotes! Tell me that a quote attributed to one song is actually from another! (TimLizzy, I fixed the Doors quote.) Plead your case why you can't possibly see another quote by Katie Melua without going on a killing spree!

Let's revive the quote box and freshen it up for the new year, Songfactors.

"Somebody said to me, 'But the Beatles were anti-materialistic.' That's a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, 'Now, let's write a swimming pool.'" - Paul McCartney

Thought I'd just throw it out there. :P

"Still is still moving to me

And I swim like a fish in the sea all the time

But if that's what it takes to be free I don't mind

Still is still moving to me."

"It's a Bloody Mary morning,

Baby left me without warning

Sometime in the night

So I'm flyin' down to Houston

Forgetting her's the nature of my flight."

~Willie Nelson (of course)

I went forth... with an age-old desire... to please...

on the edge of seventeen..." ~ Stevie Nicks

"brother is that your rifle there?

and do you know the man

in the middle of the crosshairs?

no I do not know my

enemy´s name

"I´m hell on wheels and women and horses

got me a string of lame nags and a few divorces

I keep my eyes peeled wide to see

the next future ex-Mrs. me...

if I´m a poor, poor devil

I´m a lucky, lucky dog

if I´m a low, low life I´m livin´ high on the hog

got me a jackrabbit grillin´ on a duraflame log

check out my ice chest chillin´ down my homebrewed grog..." ~ Roger Clyne

"So will I suffer

Or will I be alright

I look up into the stars,

Then look down to count my scars,

And I know mercy" ~ Roger Clyne

"Sunflowers and your face fascinate me" ~ Stevie Nicks

"Out on the road that lies before me now

There are some turns where I will spin

I only hope that you can hold me now

'Til I can gain control again"
