    For me it's "Chilly chilly is the evening time, Waterloo sunset's fine". What's yours?

    and all our chalices are still burning,
    where the devil's bones lay parching in the sun...."

    "But she'll just hear that phone keep on ringing off the wall ..., that's all."

    When Glen Campbell sings that line in "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", it cuts like a knife, in realistic lyrics. Jimmy Webb provided that great lyric, but it was Glen who sang it so effectively.

    Written for Nina Simone during a period of social upheaval, this song (and, in particular, this line) tapped into something timeless and essential. It’s a good mantra:

    I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
    Oh lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
