Popjustice Forums recently had a thread on favorite spoken bits in songs. Note that it's more about how they're said than the actual lyrics. Here are my 3 from least famous to most famous. Click on the song title to hear/see them:
Dubstar at 3:33, the last minute of Week In, Week Out:
Here am I, dressed in my bravest face
Same time, same place, week in, week out
I can't give you any more somehow
The goal to mention, you know my susceptable mind
And unwind, unlock my defences
And I'll be here, dressed in a brave face
Your choice, same time, same place...
sorry I cannot find an online sample!
Madonna at 2:14 on Stay:
Don't be afraid, it's gonna be alright, cuz I know that I can make you love me...
Hear a decent remix of the demo
And all my friends just might ask me,
They say "Martin, maybe one day you'll find true love?
And I say "Maybe... there must be a solution to
The one thing, the one thing we can't find"
This post kinda doesn't work if you can't hear them all, but whatevah. What do you think? There are a zillion. I didn't even touch Kate Bush.
