    Many tracks have lyrics that i would consider excellent,

    Pink Floyds The Final Cut is my favourite album of theirs, it's a reference for Vinyl lovers, so much going musically that only good quality systems will actually get down to and reveal it, but its the lyrics that put this album at the top of the Floyd pile for me, anyway fuck all that shit, I've got YouTube on the moment whilst preparing tomorrow's and the forthcoming weeks work ahead and its basically a list of stuff that i listen to, one of the tracks is all the young dudes MTH, just picked up on the line "and when you're stealing clothes from Marks & Sparks" :hehe:hadn't noticed it before.

    I always find myself singing the bit in The Smiths song where Morrisey goes "I was looking for a job and then I found a job and heaven knows I'm miserable now"

    In fact there's quite a few Smiths lyrics like that.

    It doesn't say that line, it says "Wendy's stealing clothes from unlocked cars " written by Bowie.

    I didn't know that Ian Hunter changed the lyrics, you're right Heathblue, he does sing marks and sparks, different to Bowie's original version where he wrote unlocked cars.

    Not keen on Bono at all, but his lyric piece from Out of Control is my favourite lyric
    So profound, so personal for me.

    One day I'll die
    The choice will not be mine
    Will it be too late
    You can't fight it (he does change this for, You can't fight fate) when playing live.

    Not usually known for profound lyrics, this verse from Gilbert O'Sullivan's nothing rhymed is pretty deep.

    "When I'm drinking my Bonaparte Shandy
    Eating more than enough apple pies
    Will I glance at my screen
    And see real human beings
    Starve to death right in front of my eyes"
