After seeing the favorite movie quote thread I started thinking of cool lines from songs and for some stupid reason the two that pop in my head right away are Van Halen's - Everybody wants some... this is during the spoken part #1 "Yeah thats it a little more to the right" and #2"I don't feel tardy" from Hot for teacher

haha. when i saw your thread title, your hot for teacher quote came to mind... when i was a kid, and that song 1st came out my friends and I always thought he was saying "i don't feel turdy" which was even better.

Ween lyrics are probably my favorite. My Own Bare Hands, Spinal Menengitis (Got Me Down), Mister Would You Please Help My Pony... all great.

Here's a few that come to mind


"Quick to judge, quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand"
Rush "Witch Hunt"

"All you touch and all you see,
Is all your life will ever be"
Pink Floyd "Breathe"

"Driving that train, high on cocaine
Casey Jones you'd better watch your speed"

"Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose."

I'm just a soul whose intentions are good,
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood.
Joe Cocker, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"

"Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow -
Why then, oh why can't I?"

"The love you take is equal to the love you make."
The Beatles, "The End"

Stone Temple Pilots - Purple - "Still Remains"

"If you should die before me
ask if you can bring a friend"


Jay Electronica - Ski Beatz's: 24 Hour Karate School - "Prowler 2"
(it's half of his verse on the song, I'm trying to add the proper punctuation so that it reads properly)

"Chasin' freedom, establish a kingdom,
and build a stone castle out of thin-walled drywall,
I'mma keep goin' till God calls and sky falls,
and he blast me on a grassy knoll and tried to blame Oswald"

If you dont expect too much from me you might not be let down.
Hey Jealousy..Gin Blossoms


Everybody wants me to be what they want me to be
I'm not happy when I try to fake it

Easy..Commodores

25 years and my life is still trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination

What's up..4 Non Blondes

I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again cause I've never needed Government to hold my hand

"You can't always get what you want! But sometimes, if you try real hard, you might just find you get what you need!"
-the stones, you cant always get what you want

"So how does it feel to know that someone's kid
in the heart of America has blood on their hands
fighting to defend your rights
so you can maintain a lifestyle
that insults his very existence?
Well, where I'm from we have a special
salute that we aim high in the air
towards all those pompous assholes
who spend their days pointing fingers"
-Avenged sevenfold, critical acclaim (A "tribute" song to george bush ;)

Two awesome Rush Quotes:

"One likes to believe in the freedom of music, but glittering prizes and endless compromises shatter the illusion of integrity" --Spirit of Radio.

"Any escape might help to smooth the unattractive truth, but the suburbs have no charms to soothe the restless dreams of youth." --Subdivisions

Wrapped tight around me
Like a second flesh hot skin
Cling to my body
As the ecstasy begins
Your wild vibrations
Got me shooting from the hip
Crazed and insatiable let rip

"So crucify the ego before it's far too late to leave behind this place, so negative and blind and cynical
And you will come to find that we are all one mind, capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable
Just let the light touch you and let the words spill through, just let them pass right through, bringin' out our hope and reason"

Reflection by Tool.

...I can do movie quotes for days, but I suck at lyrics.

"Kiss ass while you bitch so you can get rich but your boss gets richer off you. Well you'll work harder with a gun in your back for a bowl of rice a day, slave for soldiers til you starve and your head is skewered on a stake." --DK, Holiday in Cambodia.

"You can't always do it right, but you can always do whats left
So I told her 'I was trash', she winked & laughed and said I already know...
I've got a beautiful place to put your face' and she was right" --Them Croked Vultures, Nobody Loves Me & Neither Do I

OH, and...

"Jeremiah was a bullfrog, he was a good friend of mine.
Could never understand a single word he said, but I helped him drink his wine.
And he always had some mighty fine wine."

I don't think it means anything.

While driving home today I actually thought of this thread:

When I think lyrics I am not thinking of my favorite band or song or anything. These lyrics rule:

"You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave".

A line that gets stuck in my head whenever I hear it,

Let me chase it all, break my wings and fall, probably survive... So let me fly

Undertow, Pain of Salvation
