I am going to challenge you today. And it will be difficult at best. I found it borderline impossible but took a stab at it and picked. Could change with my mood. But you can do this. May make your head explode. Give it a shot!! i know you can!
Name your favourite single line of lyrics in a U2 song
Yeah, you heard me. I'll be nice and allow up to two based on stanza structure but no more!! Lots of people love this one, as an example: "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle'.
Give me your all-time favourite. Challenge each other and see who can top each other. And I am participating so here's mine:
"I'm hanging on, you're all that's left to hold on to" - Red Hill Mining Town
You may say that is a fairly simple lyric, why that? As one of my favourite songs of all time, that is something that rips my heart open every single time. Simple but also heaty-wrenching in meaning. Beautiful and breath-taking.
So what's yours? If you are up to sharing, feel free to explain why!
