What’s the Best Song Lyric of the Week? – Readers Poll
This week’s top lyrics are all about seizing the day! Whether it concerns spending time with the one you love or living up the night, these songs have you covered.
We pulled out our favorite lines from this week’s songs, but who has the best lyric? Check out the nominees and sound off in the poll below.
John Mayer, ‘Who You Love’ Feat. Katy Perry
“My girl she ain’t the one that I saw coming / Sometimes I don’t know which way to go / And I try to run before but I’m not running anymore / Because I fought against it hard enough to know.”
John Mayer’s rocky love life has been well-documented, thanks to Taylor Swift and that awkward Playboy interview, but it looks like he might have found true love with Katy Perry. These feelings are documented in their duet, which talks about not running away from your feelings.
The Wanted, ‘We Own the Night’
“May our hearts be full like our drinks tonight / May we sing and dance till we lose our minds / We are only young if we seize the night / Tonight we own the night.”
Oh, those crazy kids! The Wanted, who are about as peppy as they come, advocate that being young means staying out all night, celebrating. So get out there and dance!
Rihanna, ‘Right Now’
“Tomorrow way too far away / And we can’t get back yesterday / But we young right now / We got right now.”
In the same spirit as the Wanted, Rihanna is all about living in the moment. The always profound singer, who once found love in the most hopeless of places, knows that we can’t relive the past and the future isn’t guaranteed.
Enrique Iglesias, ‘Turn Up the Night’
“I’m searching for things that I just cannot see / Why don’t you don’t you don’t you come and be with me / I pretend to be cool with me, want to believe / That I can do it on my own without my heart on my sleeve.”
Enrique Iglesias knows how to make a lady swoon, but sets aside the tough guy act in ‘Turn Up the Night.’ He admits that he’s ready to abandon his player personality in favor of showing his true emotions. Enrique, if you’re looking for someone to show your deepest feelings to … we’re right here.
Jason DeRulo, ‘The Other Side’
“Tonight, take me to the other side / Sparks fly like the Fourth of July / Just take me to the other side.”
Awww, we can’t help but think that the ‘sparks’ Jason sings of is a reference to his lady, Jordin Sparks. Either way, this sweet song is all about realizing you have deeper feelings for a friend — and taking that plunge.
