Some lyrics are poetry. Some are funny and clever. Some are filler. Some are inspiring or tell a story. Some not so much. Are the words of the prophets written on the subway walls?
Selecting the best song lyric is subjective and comes down to what strikes a chord within you as an individual. My personal favorite was written in the 1966 by Arthur Lee:
I’D SIT INSIDE A BOTTLE AND PRETEND THAT I WAS IN A CAN
Every time I hear Love’s “7 & 7 Is” that line reverberates in my head all day. Everybody has a favorite lyric or an opinion of which is the best ever. What’s yours?
