GUEST,jonesey Songs that hook you with One Great Line (91* d) RE: Songs that hook you with One Great Line 01 May 02


Several come to mind. Sometimes it's a single line sometimes a whole verse or chorus. In no particular order:

Come back to us Barbara Lewis Hare-Krishna Beauregard-John Prine

If you loved me half as much as I love you-Hank Williams

You've got a lotta nerve-Bob Dylan

If my life were a book and my time were the pages Of all the chances I took in the chapters of my ages The corners would be folded where it told of me and you The pages worn and ragged from the times I read them through And that's how my time would look if my life were a book-Tom Dundee

I'm gonna marry Betty Blue 'Cause I love her and she loves me, too. We're gonna walk down the aisle two by two early in the mornin' time. There'll be rented tuxedo's all over the place tears in her eyes smile on my face I'm gonna marry Betty Blue early in the mornin' time, early in the mornin' time-Mike Jordan

I'm goin' steady with Iron Ore Betty She's goin' steady with me Get our mail from the same mail box We watch the same TV She's got rug burns on her elbows I got'em on my knees I'm goin' steady with Iron Ore Betty She's goin' steady with me-John Prine

I'm staring holes in my eggs as he peeks at the waitresses legs-Joni Mitchell

There's more, but that's enough for now.
