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 #WishYouWereHere

Wish you were Here Pink Floyd

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl

Taken from the song Wish You Were Here (1975), from Pink Floyd’s album of the same name. I’m a huge fan of the English band and have quoted their songs Comfortably Numb, Learning to Fly¬†and Time, as well as including them in Gr8at Debut Albums and Non-Festive UK Number Ones. I was also able to see Their Mortal Remains, their exhibition at the V&A.

Line(s) of the Day #StuckintheMiddlewithyou

Stealers Wheel

Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you

Taken from the song Stuck in the Middle with You from Stealers Wheel, from their self titled album (1973). Originally written after a meeting with record executives and producers, the song became is now most famous after its use in a rather gruesome Reservoir Dogs scene.
