Writer's Block: Dynamite with a laser beam

What's your favorite line from a song, and why?


Despite the fact that it's not particularly a favourite song of mine (I mean, I like it, don't get me wrong), there's a line in Billy Bragg's Greetings to the new brunette - "How can you lay back and think of England/when you don't even know who's in the team," which I just think is really lovely and fantastic - clever and witty. Regardless of my taste in music, that's the sort of thing I like lyrically - clever stuff, word play, thst sort of thing. I wrote a line once that quite appealled in a similar way - "every silver lining has a cloud," but a.) I could never finish a song to go with it, and b.) I had a vague feeling that I might have subconsciously pilfered it from another song (although I've never found it if I did).
