    Listened to eels "PS: You Rock My World" yesterday and got thinking about great opening lines in songs. "I was at a funeral the day I realised I wanted to spend my life with you..." Got a favourite opening line?

    Not just from a song but the opening line to the second Tom McRae record is "Welcome back said the voice on the Radio" which I really like.

    Hmmm... 'I should just get out of here and start driving south on Interstate 5, But I need to stay near In case you suddenly remember that I'm alive' Interstate 5 - The Wedding Present I think everyone has felt like that at some point.
