ONE BOWL AND WE'VE GOT TO SHARE IT: ""One life, with each other, sisters, brothers," is in the opinion of British music fans the greatest single song lyric of all time. Ummm, OK. Yes, in a poll conducted by the British version of VH1, that nugget from U2's "One" topped the list of greatest song lyrics of all time, followed by The Smiths' "So you go, and you stand on your own, and you leave on your own, and you go home, and you cry, and you want to die" and Nirvana's "I feel stupid and contagious, here we are now, entertain us." And speaking of stupid, VH1's list of the top 100 lyrics just includes the songs, but not the actual lyric being highlighted--and where the hell is "Like a Rolling Stone" on the list?

So, folks, what is your favorite lyric? Mine is probably "Switching it over to AM/Searching for a truer sound/Can't recall the call letters/Steel guitar and settle down/Catching an all-night station somewhere in Louisiana/It sounds like 1963, but for now it sounds like heaven." For some inspiration, watch this "One"-inspired clip from "The Ben Stiller Show."
