Memorable Lyrics

Each day in class, I post a multitude of quotes: one math quote, one motivational quote, four "funny" quotes, a serious vocabulary word, a "funny" vocabulary word, a word phrase puzzle, and finally . . . . a song lyric.

Now, I have a diverse taste in music, and I know a lot of lyrics, but I always seem to struggle with an appropriate one to post. I suppose the ideal lyric would be one that in not only appropriate to post to a general audience, but also one that invokes fond memories, appeals to people's ideology, or awakens them to a new idea. It would help if they were actually sung to a catch melody.

Some of my favorite song lyrics are the following:

"You don't see no hearses with luggage racks."--Don Henley: If Dirt Were Dollars

"If we weren't all crazy we would go insane.”—Jimmy Buffett, Changes In Latitudes: Changes In Attitudes

"Never again is what you swore the time before."--Depeche Mode: Policy of Truth

"Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans."--John Lennon: Beautiful Boy

If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice."-- Rush: Freewill

"It seems to me that 'maybe' pretty much always means 'no'."--Jack Johnson: Flake

"An honest man's pillow is his peace of mind."
- John Cougar Mellencamp: Minutes To Memories

"Might as well share, might as well smile. Life goes on for a little-bitty while."
--Alan Jackson

"If you want it, come and get it, for crying out loud."--David Gray: Babylon

“I was me, but now he is gone.”—Metallica: Fade to Black

“Thinking is the best way of traveling.”—The Moody Blues: The Best Way To Travel

“He not busy being born is busy dying.”—Bob Dylan: It’s Alright, Ma

I'll stop here for now, but the list goes on and on and on . . . .

What are some of your favorite lyrics???
