The Big Opening


The votes are in.

Last week, with a €25 Golden Discs voucher on offer, I asked you for your favourite opening line to a song?

You answered in your tens.

But there could be only one winner

Third Place:

Into My Arms by Nick Cave

Bertie Blenkinsop writes:

‘I don’t believe in an interventionist god, but I know darling that you do.’


Desire As by Prefab Sprout

Daisy Chainsaw writes:

‘I’ve got 6 things on my mind. You’re no longer one of them’


Up The Junction by Squeeze

‘i never thought it would happen with me and the girl from Clapham’

Nick says: Thanks all.

    Three excellent songs, each a worthy winner. Glad I don’t have to make the choice.

    Well done, Scottser! Enjoy the vouchers :-)

  2. Slightly Bemused

    Given the headline on the previous article (Et Tu, Mary Lou?), perhaps the next competition should be songs about Marys/Mary Lous.

    You know, like ” Well Hello Mary Lou, goodbye speaking rights!”

    wow, there’s a surprise. i honestly thought if bertie didn’t win it then Niall would have with ‘sound of silence’.
    i guess we all learned the difference between the first lines of great songs and great first lines of songs.
    cheers everyone – that made a killer playlist btw.

    Up The Junction was chosen by you to begin with, Nick. A worthy choice but… shenanigans!

    I’ll just pick what you go for next time.
