Hello folks

Boredom and snow has made me create this thread. What is your favorite opening line of a song.

Mine is this..... enjoy.

Pulling the ice axe from my leg, I staggered on - spindrift stinging my remaining eye.

Don't really have a specific favourite but I love how the opwning lines build up and set the rest of the song up...

"Well it rains and it pours when you're out on your own 
If I crash on the couch can I sleep in my clothes? 
Cause I spent the night dancing, I'm drunk I suppose 
If it looks like I'm laughing, I'm really just asking to leave"

Technically its "Thats why I f*cked yo b*tch you fat mother f*cka!". Equally as tone setting, though.

Calling all demons, this is the season

Next stop is therapy

We're the retarded and the broken hearted

The season of misery

"You don't know that I know you watch me every night,

And I just can't resist the urge to stand here in the light,

Your greedy eyes upon me and then I come undone,

I could close the curtains, but this is too much fun"

"Goddamn you half-Japanese girls

Do it to me every time

Oh, the redhead said you shred the cello

And I'm jello, baby"

-- "El Scorcho" by Weezer

Is this the real life?

Is this just fantasy?

Caught in a landslide

No escape from reality

Open your eyes

Look up to the skies and see

I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy

Because I'm "easy come, easy go"

Little high, little low

Any way the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me

Please allow me to adjust my pants

So that I may dance the good time dance

And put the onlookers and innocent bystanders into a trance
