My Favorite Song Lines

Do you have specific favorite lines from specific songs? Take a look at my top 10!


1. OASIS – Don’t Look Back in Anger

“So, I start a revolution from my bed…”

I wake up every morning with this powerful spell!


2. JOHN RZEZNIK (the singer of Goo Goo Dolls) – I’m Still Here

“I am a question to the world,

not an answer to the earth…”

This sentence is too contemplative  that I adopted it as my blog tagline.


3. SILVERCHAIR – The Greatest View

“I’m watching you watch over me

and I’ve got…

the greatest view from here!”

Always love hopeless romantic lyrics in a powerful rock song.


4. SUEDE -Trash

“Because we’re trash, you and me

We’re the litter on the breeze

We’re the lovers on the streets…”

Also love the way how britpop defines ‘love’.


5. TRAIN – Drops of Jupiter

“Now that she’s back in the atmosphere with drops of Jupiter in her hair…”

Probably the best metaphor I’ve heard in a modern song.

6. DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE – The Tourist

“If you feel just like a tourist in the city you were born,

It’s time to go…

and define your destination

there’s so many different places to call ‘home’.”

Such a perfect song for traveling… and homecoming



“So plant the thoughts and watch it grow.

Wind it up and let it go.”

It’s the closing lines from one of the most heartbreaking songs I’ve ever heard.

8. SNOW PATROL – Signal Fire

“In the conclusion and the aftermath, you are my signal fire

The only resolution and the only joy

is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes.”

Please teach me how to arrange such captivating words!


9. RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS – Californication

“Space may be the final frontier but it’s made in a Hollywood basement

Oh, Cobain, can you hear the spheres singing songs from station to station

And Alderaan’s not far away,

It’s Californication.”

Perhaps it’s the sharpest social criticism I have heard in a song. How the world is westernized by Hollywood.


10. GREENDAY – Church on Sunday

“If I promise to go to church on Sunday,

Will you go with me on Friday night?

If you live with me, I’ll die for you

I will compromise!”

Again, even a punk rock song can offer a cute romantic lyric!

Now, it’s your turn. Tell me what’s yours!

  2. Wow, I’m already bookmarked this page. Surprisingly, I never heard all of those songs. Not a fans of rock music though. But yes, they are really ‘cute’ in some ways. 🙂

    My favorite song lines are… umh….., it’s hard to think with Pitbull singing on top of his lungs atm, I’m at warnet anyways. *rolling eyes*

    And my fave from your list [judging just from its line] is number 7. With Train as runner up. lol.
