Your favorite lyricist

Post by valsephine » 10 May 2018, 20:47

One can have many reasons for picking a favorite song or artist: a great singing voice, a great beat, mastery of an instrument, and - my favorite - great lyrics.

Which bands or artists' lyrics consistently hit you emotionally - make you cry, make you think, or make you want to dance? Feel free to post a favorite line or verse to prove your point!
