My Top 13 Most Amazing Song Lyrics Ever Invented

Hi guys. Whats up? So, I was music surfing a while ago on YouTube. This isn’t unusual for me because I love music very much and I always try to look for new songs to put on my playlist. When I say “new” though, its not exactly “new-new.” Like Justin Bieber or Lady GaGa new. I’d much rather pick songs that people adore before but unfortunately, left forgotten now. I’m talking about music from The Beatles, The Smiths, Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, The Cranberries, U2, The Cascades, Simon and Garfunkel, Pearl Jam, Queen, Bryan Adams, and even Chicago. These guys (and girls) are like legendary with a capital L. I’ve got nothing against “contemporary-pop” which is whats really famous right now but I think that music wouldn’t be what it is today without the influences of these people. I think these geniuses are not only “musicians”. They’re more like “Life Changers” because of their work. And they write killer song lines too which is exponentially cooler than songs containing shudder-inducing swear words that will make even Adolf Hitler jump in fright. Because lets face it people. We’re in the 20th century and most of the time, people don’t pay much attention to the lyrics anymore. So how about we take a trip down memory lane and take a look at some of my most favorite song lyrics ever written. Not that you care or anything but I assure you these lines are the best and you won’t find anything like these anymore today. (;

BTW, the list is random. No particular order. And its down to 13 ‘cuz it’s my favorite number. (:

1. “You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight. ‘Cause tears are going nowhere, baby” -Stuck in a Moment by U2; 2001

2. “I am leaving, I am leaving but the fighter still remains.” -The Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel; 1968

3. “Making love and breaking hearts. It is a game for youth. But I’m not waiting on a lady, I’m just waiting on a friend.” -Waiting on a Friend by The Rolling Stones; 1981

4. “To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die.” -There is a Light that Never Goes Out by The Smiths; 1986

5.  “I’m worse at what I do best and for this gift I feel blessed. Our little group has always been and always will until the end” -Smells like Teen Spirit by Nirvana; 1991

6. “If I’m not back again this time tomorrow , carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.” -Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen; 1975

7. “Unhappiness was when I was young and we didn’t give a damn. ‘Cause we were raised
to see life as fun and take it if we can.” -Ode to My Family by The Cranberries; 1994

8. “Makes much more sense to live in the present tense.” -Present Tense by Pearl Jam; 1996

9. “We’re one but we’re not the same well we hurt each other then we do it again. You say love is a temple, love is a higher law.” -One by U2; 1992

10. “And when you find yourself lying helpless in her arms, you know you really love a woman.” -Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman by Bryan Adams; 1995

11. “We’ve come too far to leave it all behind. How could we end it all this way? When tomorrow comes we’ll both regret the things we said today.” -If You Leave Me Now by Chicago; 1976

12. “Take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise.” -Blackbird by The Beatles; 1968

13. “Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns. It calls me on and on across the universe.” -Across the Universe by The Beatles; 1969

And there you have it people. I was actually thinking of putting a side note or my own explanation in each line. But I thought, we all have our own opinions and interpretations of each one. Also, where’s the fun if I try to explain right? You have to absorb the lyrics to be able to understand it fully. Because thats what music is all about. Its not how catchy the tune is or how rated-X the music video is. Its not about how hot the singer is either (okay, maybe except for Enrique Iglesias…KIDDING!). Actually, its all about the LYRICS. ‘Cuz thats where you’ll fully appreciate the essence of the song itself. The lyrics of a song is what gives life to the song itself. Not the tune, the melody or even the rythm. Its the message itself and how you interpret it is whats important.

So peace out and happy sound tripping folks! \m/

I know my list is short. Very short actually. And there are loads more I wanted to add. Trust me, I had a difficult time choosing which songs to put in here. Maybe I’ll make a part two next time. Watch out for that, okay? (:

P.P.S.

By the way, I LOVE THE BEATLES! If I were only a bit less lazy, I’d put all their songs in here because their lyrics ROCK! They rock so much that there’s one song in particular that I just can’t figure out what my favorite part is. So, I just inserted the entire song down here so you guys can enjoy it too. Oh, and you’re welcome. \m/

There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more
