    Kill the noise fan?

    Aware of him/ them but learned about the song through Feed Me, although some of the stuff is a bit heavy for my liking.

    Two of my favourite tracks of his are Love Is All I Got and Strange Behaviour are just fantastic in my eyes (or ears?), but I do like some of the heavier stuff too. I guess I'm quite particular.

    It would be too much for me to deal with to be sitting up there next to God, Bon Scott, Sid Vicious, and Jimi Hendrix, and hear somebody read my obituary from below: NIKKI SIXX DIED TODAY...F***ING GOLFING - Nikki Sixx

    Were they from the real Nikki Sixx or the other one?

    Goethe eh?

    Paddy goes for a job on a building site, it goes well and at the end of the interview the foreman says “well Paddy, you know your stuff. One final question - what’s the difference between joist and girder?” Paddy thinks for a moment. “Could it be sor, that Joyce wrote Ulysses and Goethe wrote Theory Of Colours?”

    Btw whoever copied the words to Time [Floyd] could have saved a bit of space by aiming straight for

    Always liked Barclay James Harvest's line.

    And when all the words have gone, there’s the thought to carry on.

    The World Goes On, on Octoberon. Marvellous.

    That's entertainment by The Jam ( Paul Weller). The whole song is pure poetry. It deserves a plaque of its own.

    Rap is spelled with a silent c - George Harrison (I think)
  • Shouldn't they be quotes / lines of pieces of music the OP likes not the thoughts of others?

    But as everyone else has had a go I'll throw in

    "If You Ain't Gonna Get It On, Take Your Dead censored Home" by Funkadelic.
  • [And then one day you find, 10 years have got behind you. No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    Damn. You got in before me.

    True on so many levels.

    Yeah, they will be. I'm just looking for inspiration, but the final choice will be from a song that I love. My musical tastes are fairly wide and constantly evolving, ranging from 1950's jazz through the golden era of rock, soul, 'Madchester', funk, grunge etc to some current stuff, but I don't see many deep inspirational lyrics in the current charts (maybe I'm wrong).

    Thanks everyone, digging out some great stuff here.

    '21st Century Schizoid man' might by now be timely though I believe it was penned in the 70's - King Crimson - Court of the Crimson King - must have been even more impressive in its day. :D

    "It's a not so bad, it's a nice a place, ah shaddap a your face".

    Because meaningful quotes would be as cheesy as the kind of censored you find made of wooden letters or on censored cushions in shite interiors shops.

    Funnily enough, I've never been much of a Bowie fan. Deep respect, but never a big fan,

    Thanks everyone.

    I reckon that I'll be going with a line from Stairway to Heaven as I'm currently trying to learn it on piano :s

    Probably "Yes, there are two paths you can go but in the long run, there's still time to change the road you're on"

    I may put this on one shelf and something else on the other, or else split it across the two.

    Not the biggest of Springsteen fans but,
    "Is a dream alive if it don't come true,
    or is it something worse?
    "

    Is one of my favourite lines ever

    Bit emo tho...

    Sod it...

    "Yo, I'm hung like Planet Pluto,
    hard to see with the naked eye
    but if I crashed in to Uranus,
    I would stick it where the sun don't shine
    ..."

    Released 10 October 1969 and yes, it was impressive. Still is for that matter.
