I know, I know, another Favorite Music thread. Well, music and religion are my main interests, so live with it.
Anyway, I'd like to know your top 5 english speaking bands/musicians of all time, and your favorite lyric from that band. So it begins...
1. Artist: Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Dead Flag Blues
Lyric: "The car is on fire, and there is no driver at the wheel, and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides, and a dark wind blows."
2. Artist: A Silver Mt. Zion - God Bless Our Dead Marines
Lyric: "While somewhere distant, peacefully our vulgar leaders sleep, dead kids don't get photographed God bless our dead marines."
3. Artist: A Perfect Circle - Judith
Lyric: "It's not like you killed someone. It's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side. Praise the one that left you broken down and paralyzed -- He did it all for you."
4. Artist: Leonard Cohen - A Thousand Kisses Deep
Lyric: "The ponies run, the girls are young, the odds are there to beat. You win a while and then it's done, your little winning streak. And summoned now to deal with your invincible defeat, you live your life as if it's real, a thousand kisses deep."
5. Artist: Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds - Cannibal's Hymn
Lyric: "But if you're gonna dine with them cannibals, well sooner or later darling you're gonna get eaten."
