Topic: In 6 words or less
I recently woke up with a pinched nerve in my mid-back that took my breath away. It was connected to my neck in some manner that made me miserable to even turn my head to back my car out of the garage. So, I made my first trip to the Chiropractor. As the chiropractor worked on my back, the only thing I could think of was "It Hurts So Good" (John Mellencamp) In order to occupy my mind in my Current Situation, I began analyzing lyrics. (been hangin' with Jane way too long )
I couldn't come up with too many 4 word lyrics from a song, except Born To Be Wild and Eight Days A Week, which both lose a little of the emphasis when taken out of context.
Eight Days A Week Is Not Enough To Show I Care
Eight Days A Week...I Love You
I did come up with a couple 6 or less words
Drowning In A River of Tears (Clapton)
I've Got You Under My Skin (Sinatra)
Her Mind Is Tiffany Twisted (Eagles)
Like many lyrics, they can have different meanings to different people in different situations. The Eagles line, my hubby thinks refers to Tiffany the real expensive jeweler and he's probably right since the next line is about driving a Mercedes. Me, I had never even heard of the jeweler when Hotel California was popular, so I thought it referenced the replicas of the artist Tiffany's complex glass creations. My grandmother use to collect Tiffany lamps and give them for presents, so I always liked them.
There's lots of cool lyrics in the 10 word range.
Dylan-How Many Ears Must One Man Have Before He Can Hear People Cry
You Break Just Like A Little Girl
Cream-Its getting near dawn, When lights close their tired eyes.
I've been waiting so long, To be where I'm going
Eagles-I Was Thinking To Myself This Could Be Heaven Or This Could Be Hell
John Lennon-Life Is What Happens To You While You're Busy Making Other Plans
Mother You Had Me But I Never Had You- Breakfast with the Beatles played lots of Mother related songs yesterday in honor of Mother's Day. This song is heart wrenching. I learned that George Harrison's Mom Louise gave him the final line to complete Piggies that he was stumped on...What they need is a damn good whacking. (just so it rhymed with lacking)
Anyone have any good 4 word lyrics or 6 word lyrics that kinda' stand on their own?
