My obsessive fascination is in your imagination

Huh, a music theme this week without me even planning it.

Ok, this lyric absolutely belongs in my top 10 of all time. Belle & Sebastian is not in the running for this honor, because I love so many of their lyrics. What gets stuck in my head usually random and it varies. Anyway, the Top 2 lyrics are by Jim Steinman, you know, the guy who wrote everything good Meat Loaf ever sang. Another in the top 10 is by him.

#1: I'm praying for the end of time so I can end my time with you. Paradise by the Dashboard Lights from Bat Out of Hell, Meatloaf

#2: There ain't no Coupe de Ville hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box...Two Outta Three Ain't Bad, Bat Out of Hell, Meatloaf

Others in the Top 10:

--Living in a powder keg and giving off sparks.
Total Eclipse of the Heart, Bonnie Tyler
Mercedes thinks this is a ridiculous lyric. I COULD be including this just because I sang it at karaoke this weekend. But I don't think so.

--The one at the top here...

I can't think of any others at the moment. But there you go. Mock me at will. You don't know any better.
