I've just been inspired to retitle my homepage "No-one in the world ever gets what they want and that is beautiful"...

A fine choice, although you could use just about any of the lyrics from that song.

One of my faves would be "I don't want the world, I just want your half "

Mine? "Why did they send her over anyone else? How should I react? These things happen to other people. They don't happen at all, in fact." From "She's An Angel".

From "Dead":
I will never say the word "procrastinate" again,
I'll never see myself in the mirror with my eyes closed,
I didn't apologise for when I was eight and I made my younger brother have to be my personal slave.

It's edutainment. smiley - laugh

Some new ones since I posted here (four years ago... smiley - yikes):

"They revamped the airport completely, now it looks just like a nightclub - everyone's excited and confused." (Man, It's So Loud In Here)

"My defeated heart keeps beating on." (Cyclops Rock)

And one of the bonus features on the "Gigantic" DVD is Michael McKean (David St Hubbins of Spinal Tap fame) reciting the lyrics to "I Palindrome I"...

"Son, I am able," she said, "though you scare me." "Watch," said I. "Beloved," I said. "Watch me scare you though," said she, "able am I, son." smiley - weird
