Line(s) of the Day #PaintItBlack

1966-paint-it-black-7s-sa

I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

Taken from Paint it Black from The Rolling Stones’ studio album Aftermath (1966). A huge number one on both sides of the Atlantic, it’s still a favourite on their live tours, once I was able to see on Friday. Expect a post on it soon.

Waldon Schmidt: How was the movie?
Alan Harper: Fantatic! I went out by myself and came home with a date.
Berta: Well, normally you out with a date and come home by yourself.

Line(s) of the Day #IllBeThereForYou

Rembrandts song

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke
Your love life’s D.O.A
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month
Or even your year, but

I’ll be there for you
(When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you
(Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you
(‘Cause you’re there for me too)

The opening lines and chorus from I’ll be There For You by The Rembrandts, from the American duo’s third studio album LP (1995). The song is far better known for being the theme tune to sitcom phenomenon Friends,  a show I’ve been rewatching from the start. You can find two of the many jokes here and here.

Despite his threats, many brave men defied him. And true to form, when the pen failed… Pablo was always ready with the sword.

Wax on, right hand. Wax off, left hand. Wax on, wax off. Breathe in through nose, out the mouth. Wax on, wax off. Don’t forget to breathe, very important.
