My all-time favourite has to be "It's one-o'clock, and time for lunch, um-de-dum de-dum-dum-dum" - taken from 'I Know What I Like - Genesis' What's your all time favourite opening lyric ?

hmmmm. hard to say really. I rather like "can't get the stink off. he's been hanging round for days" from Radioheads "Just" or in realms of radiohead, there is also the completely bizarre "please could you stop the noise I'm trying to get some rest from all the unborn chicken voices in my head" from Paranoid Android, which you have to love for it's oddness. or what about Faithless - Insomnia all the subtle flavours of my life are become bitter seeds and poison leaves without you Blur - This is Low and into the sea goes pretty England and me first lines are rarely best lines though. can I say, listening to right now..... Michael Rennie was ill the day the Earth stood still...

Back in the day it would have been something like this: Do you have the time, to listen to me whine, about everything and nothing all at once? I am one of those mellow-dramatic fools......Green Day! I am not like that now, but once upon a time i used to be so negative! That's funny!
