The line is actually, "I've been waiting for a GUIDE to come and take me by the hand," which is what makes the line so fucking powerful. But you win, either way. I'm frankly shocked that y'all kept going on after this was posted, although I've gotta say...there've been a few great "nominations" posted up in here. Good job, for the most part.

Mr. Curtis takes the cake all the way, though. Especially when you factor in the delivery.

Now that your picture's in the paper being rhythmically admired...

(OK, so it might not be best opening line EVER. But it's definitely number one for best opening line of a first song on a debut album.)

Muhammad my friend
it’s time to tell the world
we both know it was a girl back in Bethlehem


she’s addicted to nicotine patches


Maybe I didn’t like to hear
But I still can’t believe Speed Racer is dead
So then I thought I’d make some plans
But Fire thought she’d really rather be Water instead

Tori
