Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people Sharing all the world

When our days shall know their number
When in death we sweetly slumber
When the King commands the spirit to be free
Nevermore with anguish laden
We shall reach that lovely Eden
When they ring the golden bells for you and me
When they ring the golden bells for you and me

My favorite version of “When They Ring the Golden Bells” is from Natalie Merchant’s ‘Ophelia’ album

“I will never forget those nights,
I wonder if it was a dream,
Remember how you made me crazy, Remember how I made you scream”

A catchy tune leads a way to life for those still here for fun, and heaven flirting wildly with someone’s lack of faith.

Besides the line from Common People that was posted below, the chorus from Bullet with Butterfly Wings is surprisingly calming to me. I know it's supposed to be edgy and angsty and all but knowing that "despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage" oddly puts me at ease.

'Some balls are held for charity, and some for fancy dress, but when they're held for pleasure, they're the balls that I like best.'

Honorable Mention:

'Can we film the operation? Is the head dead yet? You know, the boys in the newsroom got a running bet. Get the widow on the set! We need dirty laundry.'

My Funny Valentine - Frank Sinatra

Is your figure less than Greek?
Is your mouth a little weak?
When you open it to speak,
are you smart?
But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little valentine
Stay
Each day is valentine's day.

People that despise you
Will analyze and criticize you
They'll scandalize and tell lies until they realize you
Are somebody they should have apologized to
Don't let these people compromise you
Be wise too

Do anything you wanna do

I can't do it either. There are so many great lyrics.

Tonight your beauty burns
Into my memory
The wheel of heaven turns
Above us endlessly
This is all the heaven we've got
Right here where we are
In our shangri-la

You will never understand/How it feels to live your life/With no meaning or control/And with nowhere left to go./You are amazed that they exist/And they burn so bright/Whilst you can only wonder why.
Common People by Pulp

Pulp rules. I feel like we’ve discussed this before. Lol.

I think we have. They were pretty underrated, in the US anyway. Common People is #3 on my all-time favorites list.

Honestly that might also be mine. The William Shatner/Joe Jackson version is surprisingly good after a few listens and the anger with which these lines are delivered really strikes a chord with me. I'd suggest checking it out if you haven't already.

I'll look for it. I thought My Chemical Romance also did a surprisingly good cover.
