"Cassius Clay was hated more than Sonny Liston,
Some like K.K. Downing more than Glenn Tipton,
Some like Jim Nabors, some Bobby Vinton,
I like 'em all."

The word's on the street, you've found someone new.
If he looks nothing like me, I'm so happy for you.

Telling me I gotta have mo-o-ore


Ugh. Reminds me of being a kid, listening to the generic rock station that hadn't changed its playlist since the early 1990s.

This is not a corn husk doll
dipped in blood, in the moonlight, like what happened in America


'Clara', Scott Walker

why it's great: because if 'it' is not a 'corn husk doll' (what's that?), dipped in blood, what is it?
Oh God...

There's a million ways to leave your past, to turn your eyes and watch it die,
Hometown hopes they fade, they fade & change just like a joke passed down in time.

In the rap category:

"Whatever happened to the Fat Boys?
They should've recruited me
I'm skinny making fat noise!" - Charizma, "Keep on Rockin' It"
- "Whatever happened to that album?"
- "I broke it, remember? I threw it against the wall, and it like, shattered."

She said
I know what it's like to be dead
I know what it is to be sad
And she's making me feel like I've never been born
