And, Darlene...

I think I heard Jake Holmes on my radio. I bought the album when it came out because I thought the song was brilliant. I don't remember if it was WNEW-FM or a very differently formatted WCBS-FM at the time, but ONE of them played it a bit (not much, but a bit.)

Marc, Even the first line ("Where's that smile? Hope you didn't lose it. Put it on again, and wear it once for me") just got me. I still adore that song.

That line and the one in "Second Avenue" by Tim Moore ("And the things that we felt must eventually melt and fade, like the frost on my windowpane, where I wrote 'I am you"..." are probably lines that get me the most of all the songs I've ever heard.

The very best one, in my opinion, is "Dreams are forever and some thingss you never forget" by Eric Carmen in the song, "She Remembered." That rates up there with Shakespeare in my opinion.

Maybe "memorable lines" would make a great thread.
