What’s the Best Song Lyric of the Week? – Readers Poll
This week's top lyrics span the spectrum of emotions, covering everything from heartbreak to partying all night.
Robin Thicke's summer smash, 'Blurred Lines' continued to reign over pretty much every pop chart, while Pink's 'Just Give Me a Reason' continues to pluck at our heartstrings. Warm weather tends to bring out our inner party animal, which is best captured in One Direction's carpe diem anthem, 'Best Song Ever.' Other songs amping up our playlists are Calvin Harris' 'I Need Your Love' and Demi Lovato's 'Made in the USA.'
We grabbed some of our favorite lines from these songs. Vote for your pick as best of the week in the poll below!
Pink, 'Just Give Me a Reason' Feat. Nate Reuss
"It's in the stars / It's been written in the scars on our hearts / We're not broken just bent / And we can learn to love again."
Pink struck a poignant note with 'Just Give Me a Reason,' leaving us to wonder if our broken love can be salvaged. In these particular lines, she brings fate into the equation, but notes that happily-ever-after is not reached before hitting a few speed bumps.
Robin Thicke, 'Blurred Lines'
"OK now he was close, tried to domesticate you / But you're an animal, baby it's in your nature / Just let me liberate you."
Rawr! Robin Thicke is after a lady that can't be tamed -- not that he is even going to try. This club-friendly song is all about bringing out the wild side of that special someone, and Thicke excels at doing so.
One Direction, 'Best Song Ever'
"And we danced all night to the best song ever / We knew every line / now I can't remember / how it goes but I know / that I won't forget her."
Is this the best song ever? The jury is still out on that one, but we can confirm this jam perfectly captures the feeling of meeting someone incredible. That night on the dance floor might have slipped away in a haze, but you know you'll always remember it. On that note, Harry -- call me?
Calvin Harris, 'I Need Your Love'
"I take a deep breath every time I pass your door / I know you're there but I can't see you anymore / And that's the reason you're in the dark / I've been a stranger ever since we fell apart."
Pink isn't the only musician waxing poetic about heartbreak. Calvin Harris carries on the theme of love gone sour, noting that someone who was once close to him is now a ghost. Awwww, so sad.
Demi Lovato, 'Made in the USA'
"Just a little West Coast and a bit of sunshine / Hair blowing in the wind, losing track of time."
We love ourselves some America, and Demi's newest track is the best anthem since we partied in the USA. With lines referencing the West Coast and long days spent soaking up sunshine, we can't help but want summer to last all year.
