    One song that I remember made me guffaw unexpectedly is Nirvana's Very Ape. In particular, the line "If you ever need anything please dont/hesitate to ask someone else first." came out of nowhere and got a chuckle out of me.

    Another fave, though I'm not sure if it counts as a line, would be the scream (you know the one) in Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb. Shivers down my spine.

    ... I'm rather easily amused.

    "It's hard to remember we're alive for the last time."

    Lives by Modest Mouse.

    There's at least 2 or 3 other lines in that song that are amazing.

    With illusions of someday casting a golden light
    No dress rehearsal, this is our life”

    This Bed is on fire with passionate love,
    The neighbors complain about the noises above
    but she only comes when she's on top, oh well
