“If there's a goal that everyone remembers
It was back in ol' 72
We all squeezed the stick and we all pulled the trigger
And all I remember is sitting beside you

You said you didn't give a f*@k about hockey
And I never saw someone say that before
You held my hand and we walked home the long way
You were loosening my grip on Bobby Orr”

Gordon Downie / Johnny Fay / Joseph Paul Langlois / Robert Baker / Robert Gordon Sinclair

Every single word in this song-



Did the old songs taunt or cheer you?
And did they still make you cry?
Did you count the months and years
Or did your teardrops quickly dry?

"The next thing I say to you will be true
The last thing I said was false"
Devo - Enough Said

"We pray to the tabernacle of the frothy muggament
We played to the tabernacle of the frothy muggament
We played
And they paid
And was it good?
Yay, verily, it was good.."

The screen door slams
Mary’s dress sways
Like a vision she dances across the porch as the radio plays

Thunder Road - The Boss !

The last verse always gets me

There were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away,
They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of burned-out Chevrolets
They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone on the wind…

A line that you remember because it's witty, clever, poetic, well crafted, touching, a gut punch, or it just resonates with you?

For me it's; "The sunshine bores the daylights out of me..." from the Rolling Stones song 'Rocks Off'.
Crash Test Dummies, a line from the song "When I go out with Artists:" The artists of the future will make up new things and different nomenclatures. A word I have never heard used in a song before!
