Line(s) of the Day #HeyJude

hey jude

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Taken from the much-loved single Hey Jude by The Beatles in 1968, which unusually wasn’t on any studio album. It was their biggest hit in the US, spending nine weeks at number one, and topped the charts worldwide. It’s long been one of my favourite Beatles songs, along with Tomorrow Never Knows, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, In My Life and The End.

Line(s) of the Day #MollysGame

Line(s) of the Day #AllIsFullOfLove

bjork all is full of love

Twist your head around
It’s all around you
All is full of love

Taken from the song All is Full of Love by Icelandic artist Björk, from her third studio album Homogenic (1997). As well as an incredibly beautiful song, it also features one of the greatest music videos ever made, which I talked about here. You’re welcome to watch it here or share your favourite music video.

Line(s) of the Day #AllMyFriends

all my friend single

And if it’s crowded, all the better
Because we know we’re gonna be up late
But if you’re worried about the weather
Then you picked the wrong place to stay

Taken from the song All My Friends by New York band LCD Soundsystem from their second studio album Sounds of Silver (2007). I really do love this song and featured it back in my post of Awesome Songs of Over 7 Minutes.
