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 🎼💜

@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

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 🎼💜

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.

Hurry, don’t be late

I said to myself when we’re old

We’ll go dancing in the dark

Walking through the park and reminiscing

Reminiscing, Little River Band

Such a sweet song about a new and

budding relationship and the hope for

it’s future

Mother, did it need to be so high?

”Don’t you know that things gonna change

Oh, but you gotta be a man

You gotta take a stand

Don’t ever feel that

Like you can’t make it baby”

Only the strong survive, Jerry Butler

Although written from a man’s perspective,

I get inspiration from this song during

these troubled times 🎼💜

Honored Social Butterfly

Now the lines have all been read

And you knew them all by heart

Now you move toward the door

Here it comes, the hardest part

Try the handle of the road

Feeling different, feeling strange

This can never be arranged

As the light fades from the screen

From the famous final scene 

 

The Famous Final Scene  -  Bob Seger

 

”Life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” - Oscar Wilde


Bob Seger writes a heartbreaking story about life as seen through the lens of a camera for a movie screen. Beautifully done, too. 💛

"It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share?
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother"

He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother - The Hollies

 

Just a reminder, we're all in this together.
Sartre said 'Hell is other people,' and The Epicureans believed, 'There's no fate but what we make for ourselves,' Reality probably falls somewhere in between.
Dystopia is just another word for Utopia...from an Antisocial point of view.

”Everybody walkin’ by the river now,

everyday, everybody laughin’

Shake your hand, share the land

Everybody singin’ and talkin’, smilin’,

laughin’, diggin’ each other”

Share the land, Guess Who

The upbeat lyrics tell a tale where

everything is perfect and everyone

is there for each other. How I wish

it could still be that way 🎼💜

"One Song At a Time" - Mark Knopfler (2018)

 

"And I'll be out of this place
Down the road wherever
There but for the grace, et cetera
I'll see you later somewhere down the line
I'll be picking my way out of here
One song at a time"

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMd5cEf6HQo 

 

 It is about him wanting to get out of the place he grew up and music was that way. The title of the song he got from his good friend Chet Akins who once said to him when talking about their childhoods that "he took his guitar and worked his way out of poverty one song at a time". Nice song. They performed together live several times. 1987 they did Secret Policeman's Ball and Chet Akins and Friends. They recorded an album together ("Neck and Neck" 1990).

I'd love to turn you on.

And as I watch the drops of rain 

Weave their weary path and die

I know that I am like the rain

There but for the grace of you go I

 

Kathy’s Song  -  Paul Simon / S & G

 

Paul Simon wrote it for his girlfriend, Kathy, who was back in England at the time. The use of rain at the beginning and end so beautifully describes how he is feeling as he writes the song. It’s a beautiful song, and one of his best.

"Loneliness is a power that we possess to give or take away forever
All I know can be shown by your acceptance of the facts there shown before you
Take what I say in a different way and it's easy to say that this is all confusion
As I see a new day in me, I can also show it you and you may follow"

Or since the song ends on a Refrain

"Speak to me of summer
Long winters longer than time can remember
The setting up of other roads
To travel on in old accustomed ways
I still remember the talks by the water
The proud sons and daughter
That knew the knowledge of the land
Spoke to me in sweet accustomed ways"

 

Starship Trooper - Yes

 

Either way it seems to suggest that although the framework of our existence may be made up of empirically quantifiable and understandable elements, the quality of our existence is determined by the altruistic/prosocial results of our decisions and actions.

Social Butterfly

But that's okay
There's treasure children always seek to find
And just like us
You must have had
A once upon a time
Oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh

”I was lifted up again

I said I was lifted up, by the Lord

Lifted up again, lifted up again, lifted up again

By the Lord”

Full Force Gale, Van Morrison

I’m not overly religious but this song has

always moved me and lifted me up in my

darkest of times 🎼💜

"Man of passion rise again, we won't cross you out:
For we do love you like a son, of that there's no doubt
Tell us: is it you who are here for our good cheer?
Or are we here for the glory, for the story, for the gory satisfaction
Of telling you how absolutely awful you really are?

There was a rush along the Fulham Road
There was a hush in the Passion Play"

 

Passion Play - Jethro Tull

 

Pretty much the same sentiment as the end of Godzilla...Just  a wee bit more long winded because it addresses a particular human shortcoming that keeps repeating and repeating.

“From a seed somebody else has thrown
Go on ahead and throw some seeds of your own

And somewhere between the time you arrive

And the time you go

May lie a reason you were alive

That you’ll never know”

For a Dancer, Jackson Browne

His lyrics are reflective and deep

in this amazing song from the iconic

Late for the Sky album 🎼💜

”A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes

As if to hide a lonely tear

My life will be forever autumn

‘Cause you’re not here”

Forever Autumn, Moody Blues

Anyone who’s ever lost a loved one knows

the pain, which never really leaves. This

song with its haunting lyrics sung by the

incredible Justin Hayward is one of my

favs of theirs 🎼💜

Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is
To see you.
