Please don't confront me with my failures. I have already forgotten them. - Nico ~ These Days

That was just a dream

Just a dream

Just a dream - R.E.M. ~ Losing My Religion

And sometimes, lonely hearts, they just get lonelier

And lonelier, and lonelier, and lonelier - Rilo Kiley ~ Wires and Waves

My apologies if someone else mentioned my example (I've been reading so much today that I need a bit of a break :) )

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

... anyway the wind blows...

That line has stuck with me for over 30 years. It's been such an influence on my writing/poetry that I often repeat lines in the same vein (to be honest, I might of repeated lines before I heard that tune but I gotta give something the credit ;) )

Heard this last night. Been awhile:

Breathe deep the gathering doom

Watch lights fade from every room

Bed sitter people look back and lament

Another day's useless energy is spent

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one

Lonely man cries for love and has none

New mother picks up and suckles her son

Senior citizens wish they were young

Cold-hearted orb that rules the night

Removes the color from our sight

Red is gray and yellow is white

But we decide which is right

And which is an illusion

The Moody Blues "Nights in White Satin"...(the talkin' part at the end of the song that is kinda creepy but very cool)

And it was such an instant classic that it was just a matter of time before someone did a cheap knockoff of it. That someone was the Guess Who, in "Hang On To Your Life". In that case the spoken ending piece was a quote from Psalm 22:

They gaped upon me with their mouths

As a ravening and a roaring lion

I am poured out like water

And all my bones are out of joint

My heart is like wax

It is melted in the midst of my bowels

My strength is dried up like a potsherd

And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws

And thou hast brought me into the dust of death
