I posted this topic last year, but, while several people responded, the thread didn't take off like I thought it would. So let's give it another shot, shall we?
What's your favorite first line from a song?
A whole stanza does not count. So, you can either have 1.) the very first line of the very first verse or 2.) the first line and the second (and third and fourth, possibly) if those lines put together creates just one complete sentence. Are we clear?
Below are several of my favorites. I'll add more in the comments section as I hear them throughout the year, and I encourage you to come back to add to the list as well (check out my format below):
"Shall we agree that just this once/I'm gonna change my life?"
--"The Other End of the Telescope" by Elvis Costello
"I was born with a coat hanger in my mouth."
--"Miss Fortune" by John Wesley Harding
"It's Britney, bitch."
--"Gimme More" by Britney Spears
"Here I stand, victorious/The only man who made you come."
--"Ghosts" by Robbie Williams
