LAST LINES

We’ve done First Notes and Opening Lines so

it’s time to do Last Lines. What are your most 

memorable last lines of your fav songs? If

you’re so inclined, tell us why also 🎼💜

 

And in the end, the love you take

Is equal to the love you make”

The End, Fab 4️⃣

The final lines from this song from the incredible Abbey Road Medley have always resonated 

to me in the deepest way. To me they represent 

equality, purity, love and religion all wrapped up in one. This stands as one of the best last lines ever, imo 🎼💜

Someday when we’re dreaming

Deep in love, not a lot to say

Then we will remember 

Things we said today

 

Things We Said Today - The Beatles


It’s a fascinating song, the way it’s written. McCartney called the song “future nostalgia” that is “projecting something in the future that exists now”. It sounds dark as it alternates between minor and major chords, though the lyrics are romantic. Did he already suspect that his romance with girlfriend Jane Asher was already doomed?

"In the Year 2525" - Zager & Evans

 

"Now it's been ten thousand years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what, he never knew, now man's reign is through
But through eternal night, the twinkling of starlight
So very far away, maybe it's only yesterday"

About the future, that isn't as much science fiction as we thought. (also in First Lines)

You with the moves like Jagger

I got the moves like Jagger

I got the mooooooves like Jagger

Moves like Jagger, Maroon 5

The ultimate compliment is to have

a song named after you 🎼💜

"Truly Madly Deeply" - Savage Garden

 

"I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy.
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need.
I'll love you more with every breath, truly madly deeply do

 

I want to stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea.
I want to lay like this forever.
Until the sky falls down on me."

 

Beautiful love song.

"To The Moon and Back" - Savage Garden


"She's saying, love is like a barren place
And reaching out for human faith is
Is like a journey I just don't have a map for
So baby gonna take a dive and push the shift to overdrive
Send a signal that she's hanging all her hopes on the stars"

 

About a women that has hard life, past heartaches, can't trust, looks for love and someone that listens and wants to rescue her.

Everyday is sunshine, girl you’re on my mind

One of a kind, one of a kind love affair is

Makes me want to, want to be with you 

(One of a kind) baby, baby, baby

One of a kind (Love Affair)   Spinners

Celebrating the most special and perfect

love that isn’t going to make it to forever.

My most fav Spinners song 🎼💜

Mother, did it need to be so high?

"The rivers are full of crocodile nasties
And he who made kittens put snakes in their grasp
He's a lover of life but a player of pawns
Yes, the King on His sunset lies waiting for dawn
To light up His Jungle as play is resumed
The monkeys seem willing to strike up the tune

Well, let's bungle in the jungle
Well, that's all right by me, yes
I'm a tiger when I want love
And I'm a snake when we disagree"

 

Bungle In The Jungle - Jethro Tull

 

...always thought Machiavelli's The Prince (Like Galileo's Dialogue) reads like a satire written with just enough care to save the author's skin from the full wrath of 'the powers that be'.

Labelling it a 'literary classic' is a sad statement about the culture. These days it could be titled 'Creating a Sartrean Hell For Dummies'.

All my sorrow

Sad tomorrow

Take me back to my own home

Reflections of my life, Marmalade

This amazing song from 1969 offers

a message about the world we live

in today. Also the conflict between

living unhappily and death, not the

option he wants 🎼💜

Honored Social Butterfly

A time to gain, a time to lose

A time to rend, a time to sew

A time for love, a time for hate

A time for peace, I swear it’s not too late

Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall

Making friends for the world to see

Let the people know you got what you need

With a friend at hand you will see the light

If your friends are there, then everything’s 

all right

Friends, Sir Elton John

This beautiful and uplifting song from 1971

is one of his best recordings 🎼🎼💜

True friends like diamonds are precious

but rare…..

Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill!

He said Brandy you’re a fine girl (You’re 

a fine girl)

What a good wife you would be (Such a

fine girl)

But my life, my lover, my lady is the sea

Falling in love with a sailor is tough 💜🎼

Nothing really matters, anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters to me
Any way the wind blows

 

Queen-Bohemian Rhapsody 

Honored Social Butterfly

And you know that it’s right

We have got to get it together

We have got to get it together now

Something in the air, Thunderclap Newman

Although this song from 1969 is about an

impending revolution, it’s theme about

getting it together rings true about the

times we live in

Social Butterfly

Oh, and when you're one
Really one
Well, you get things done
Like they've never been done
So hold on

 

Hold On-John Lennon 

Honored Social Butterfly

When you’ve seen beyond yourself then you may find

Peace of mind is waiting there

And the time will come when you see we’re all one

And life flows on within you and without you 

 

Within You Without You - The Beatles

 

We must look beyond our own self-interest, and realize how connected we all are to be at peace with ourselves and each other. A pretty good summation of Harrison’s life philosophy after his studies in India, as well as a good one to live by. It dovetails nicely with Lennon’s All You Need Is Love.

@Vexed  You’re most welcome! The world could use a lot more Georges. I always admired his spirituality without aspiring to any particular religion.

The people on the street came runnin’ in

to join in song

Just to hearing the opera singers singing

rock and roll so pure

I thought I saw the Mayor there

But I wasn’t really sure

But it’s alright

Rockaria!  ELO

Just such an infectious song celebrating

the joy of rock and roll 🎼💜

One of my favorite bands @MaVolta . My first concert (that I was able to get to ) was to Eric Burdon and The Animals. Back up band was Strawberry Alarm Clock.

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill

I really love your peaches

Wanna shake your tree

Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time

Come on baby now, I’ll show you a good time

The Joker, Steve Miller Band

Such a cute and flirty song with clever lyrics

that was ahead of it’s time. Love the peaches

line 🎼💜

Fun to sing @BeatleloverKT .

This is another two-parter that ends on the refrain:

 

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look, what's going down?

You better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look, what's going down?

You better stop
Now, what's that sound?
Everybody look, what's going down?

You better stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look, what's going down?

 

For What It's Worth - Buffalo Springfield

 

Either way it rings as true (perhaps even more true) today as it did when it was released 55 years ago...maybe the sense of futility expressed by the haphazard indifference of the title speaks to a major contributing factor.

Good song @EricC227821. Reminds me of ........😊

Whoo and baby, baby, I’d rather be blind, boy

Then to see you walk away, see you walk

away from me, yeah

Whoo, baby, baby, baby, I’d rather be blind

I’d rather go blind, Etta James

She knows she lost her man and she can’t

bear to even see anymore. What a scorching

song about being cheated on 🎼💜

Honored Social Butterfly

Now I think I know

What you tried to say to me 

And how you suffered for your sanity 

And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they’re not listening still

Perhaps they never will

 

Vincent - Don McLean

 

Besides being one of my favorite artists, I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Vincent Van Gogh. As an artist, he was well undervalued and under appreciated during his lifetime, and as a person, so misunderstood, given his struggles with mental health. His life story is nothing short of heartbreaking. Don McLean paints beautiful, yet sad, portrait of the man who gave the world so many great works of art. It’s one of my favorite songs of all time.
