What is it that makes a lyric memorable? To some, it is the way that you can relate to that song...or to a specific set of lyrics....to some, it brings back long lost memories..some sad, some happy.....sometimes, lyrics can mean more than they appear to while other times, they mean nothing....everyone who listens to music, which I assume, is everybody, is affected in one way or another by certain lyrics, now while it is true that not all songs have lyrics......the majority do...and while it is also true that the same lyric will not have the same effect on everyone, the fact is that everyone knows a specific song, or a specific set of lyrics which they hold in their mind, and for some reason, will never forget. NOw this is where the important part of this post comes in.....here are some lyrics which, as of late, I have found to be the most memorable for me, I will post mine....and I encourage others to do the same...if you'd like...=)
"we're just two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl, year after year.."-Pink Floyd [Wish you were here]
"goodbye my friend , it's hard to die, when all the birds are singing in the sky"-Terry Jacks [Seasons in the Sun]
"cause you can't trust freedom when it's not in your hand, when everybody's fighting for the promise land"-Guns n' Roses [Civil War]
"mamma, I don't want to die, I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all"-Queen [Bohemian Rhapsody]
"I close my eyes, only for a moment and that moment's gone"-Kansas [Dust in the Wind]
"who wants to live forever, who dares to love forever, when love must die"-Queen [Who Wants to Live Forever]
"would you know my name? if I saw you in heaven"-Eric Clapton [Tears in Heaven]
These are few of many, this post is already long enough as it is....perhaps I'm just wasting your time with my nonsense....but we have to admit that the lyrics of the songs we listen to do have an impact....somehow...-_-....thanks to all who actually read the whole post...
Oh how convenient. A theory about God that doesn't require looking through a telescope.
