    Great opening lines.

    Watching a good programme about the Mississippi tonight, it brought to mind one of my favourite and iconic opening lines to a song : “The Mississippi delta was shining like a national guitar”. from Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’....... so visually emotive. Any others?

    That's the one that comes to my mind too.

    'All children, except one, grow up'

    Peter Pan was the 1st book I can remember being unable to put down. Of course parts of it haven't aged well but it's a brilliant children's book.

    Here's a couple people should know;

    "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster."

    "I believe in America. America has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the American fashion."

    First one is Goodfellas
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Realised your intention was songs

    I look at you all,
    see the love there that's sleeping,
    While my guitar gently weeps.

    And you may find yourself
    Living in a shotgun shack
    And you may find yourself
    In another part of the world
    And you may find yourself
    Behind the wheel of a large automobile
    And you may find yourself in a beautiful house
    With a beautiful wife
    And you may ask yourself, well
    How did I get here?

    I listened to a wonderful programme by the inestimable Tom Service on BBC Radio 3 pre-lockdown.

    It was all about how we react to music aurally. He didn’t introduce it as such, he just played four intros and one was the intro to ‘California Dreamin’’ by the Mamas and the Papas.

    When he did start talking he said it was human nature for most of us to sing along to the chorals that back up the soloes or leads.

    So Mama or John Cass starts and sings ‘All the leaves are brown’, but instinctively you follow the backing singers and sing ‘All the leaves are brown’ etc just some notes behind Mama’s or John’s lead, along with the backing singers, rather than the main vocal part. It is compulsive.

    I can’t remember the other pieces but it was true of them as well. Some were classical, maybe Bach, I can’t remember. It was absolutely fascinating and well worth digging up on BBC iPlayer if you can.

    Just to save folk the bother, this is what I was referring to.

    I know that I've imagined love before. And how it could be with you
    Really hurt me, baby, really cut me, baby
    How can you have a day without a night?

    You're the book that I have opened
    And now I've got to know much more

    How can I tell you that I love you, I love you
    But I can't think of right words to say
    I long to tell you that I'm always thinking of you
    I'm always thinking of you, but my words
    Just blow away, just blow away

    If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?

    My favourite:

    I bought a toothbrush, some toothpaste
    A flannel for my face
    Pyjamas, a hairbrush
    New shoes and a case
    I said to my reflection
    "Let's get out of this place"

    Sorry if too long!
