I can't really explain what it is about those songs. The ones that get stuck in your head, and stay there for hours, sometimes days. Even if it's just one line (incessantly playing on repeat over and over in your head), it sticks with you. Why? What is it about these songs that make them so memorable? To me, solid instrumental music always lays the foundation for a good song, but the lyrics, the ones that capture true human emotion, are what make it so hard to forget.

The Best of the Best

"So if I could I'd wish it all away. If I thought tomorrow would take you away. You're my piece of mind, my home, my center. I'm just trying to hold on one more day. Dim my eyes. Dim my eyes if they should compromise our fulcrum; what you need divides me then I might as well be gone."

~ "Jambi" Maynard James Keenan, Tool

"Hit it one more time for our men. In uniform with a price over their heads. This is a war. Sober up. But call it what you want, the color changes up in the sun. I'm not throwing stones at you anymore. Your name's in lights and I don't wonder. Anymore. Anymore."

~ "Tip Your Bartender" Daryl Palumbo, Glassjaw

"Paint the streets in white. Death is the standard breach for a complex prize. I think it's sweet of you, and your parents are proud. But I would expect it from anyone now to protect life's indigenous sound."

~ "Hexagram" Chino Moreno, Deftones

"God paged me, he'll never see the lie he wants to see. God told me, I've already got the life. Oh I say."

~ "Got the Life" John Davis, Korn
