Best opening lines

Recommended Posts

In contrast to @ozleicester's thread, whats the best opening line to a song? for me it has to be:

 

"On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?"

Pretty girl on the hood of a Cadilac, yeah....
She's broken down on freeway nine
I take a look and get her engine started
I leave her purring and I roll on by.... Bye bye

I always thought:-

 

Punctured bicycle
On a hillside desolate
Will nature make a man of me yet?

 

was a pretty good one.

"Pistol shots ring out in the barroom night / Enter Patty Valentine from the upper hall"

Now I dialled 911 a long time ago
Don't you see how late they're reacting
They only come and they come when they wanna
So get the morgue truck and embalm the goner

"did you see the stylish kids in the riot, shoveled up like muck, set the night on fire,

wombles bleed, truncheons and shields, you know I'll cherish you my love"

BBC sounds have a series of podcasts about Rubin Carter called 'The Hurricane Tapes'. Loads of unreleased interviews with all the people iinvolved in the case behind this song. Really interesting.

Love it, obviously.

 

Lennon wrote that (the first line of the song) on acid.

That takes me back. Loved this album mid 90's but must have come out around late eighties/1990 I suppose.

 

Not heard a Jane's Addiciton track in so long.
